What Happens When 2 Greyhounds Hire 2 Pet Sitters

Would you believe that of all of the dog breeds that we've taken care of during our 4 years as pet sitters that not one greyhound ever requested our services? Our self-esteem has dropped significantly over the years because we've tried so hard to win the affection of these beautiful creatures but to no avail until t-shirted Jet and Alice came out of hiding.

We were beyond excited to spend our days and nights with these cuties but they were a bit cautious with us until .....

it was time for dinner. Jet and Alice were so relieved that a stranger knew exactly what to put in each of their bowls without asking for their help!

 And if things couldn't get any better, Alice was thrilled that Amos knew just where her food bowl belonged

and Jet was relieved that Amos put his bowl far away from his food obsessed sister so he could eat in peace.

By the end of the visit, Jet and Alice were literally eating out of their pet sitter's hands and

we could tell by looking into Jet's eyes that he couldn't wait to see his pet sitters again!

Needless to say, we are thrilled to FINALLY have 2 greyhounds who are sure to rehire us soon!


  1. OMD that is just adorable. Greyhounds are such sweeties esp those too. I would kill to have yall watch my duo and you could bring Daisy along ;)

  2. A couple of cuties. I like Alice's collar...very stylish!

    Jet and Alice looked very content with their new staff.


  3. Oh that is great that your first sitting with them went so well - we can tell they were very happy with the way it went!

  4. Woof! Woof! Cutie Greyhounds. I'm sure they'll rehire you. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. Awwww look at Jet's beautiful doleful eyes! Awww!! Jet and Alice are just gorgeous! Well done you and Amos for winning them over with such style! Yay!!!

    Take care

  6. Congrats on winning over the greyhounds! Now they will go tell their friends and you'll have more greyhounds to sit than you know what to do with :)

  12. The thing to know about us Greyhounds is that we're like cats in a dog's body. It's true! We'll come to you on our terms and we always expect to be treated like royalty. It goes back to the days when we could only be the companions of nobility. ;) Jet and Alice are both beautiful!
