I have no one to blame but myself.
I was the one who thought Rassilon was not well and took him to the vet.
I am the one who made him take the anti-biotic tablets.
So why shouldn’t I be the one that gets woken up at 6.00am on a Saturday by a loony greyhound that wants to play? And when I didn’t want to get up and play, he stood at the end of the bed and barked at me.
Now there is a rewarding side to this, if you want to look at it that way. Firstly, Rassilon must be feeling better because in the 4 months I have had him he has never wanted to play like this. Secondly, he has barked but usually when I get home and he is waiting to get let out. But greyhounds are known for not barking a lot, but they do bark (sometimes) when they are playing, so he was actually telling me he wanted to play.
So, despite the 6.00am bit, everything was quite exciting for me to see these improvements.
Another good thing about his recent episode of feeling down is that he has taken to sleeping on his own bed and leaving me in peace at night (He preferred sleeping either in the middle of the bed or across the bed).
