Brownie had an outing today, first to PetSmart to get a TNT and dremel, and then to Petco to look for a sweater, 'cause I didn't see anything I liked at PetSmart.  Brown is man-shy, so I was careful about her attention, but she did great!  Several males stopped and pet her and she even kissed one (shameless, she is!).  I was very pleased with her good behavior.  I also got my "greyhound fix" while she was getting the TNT, as a local rescue was there with 6 new arrivals from Florida.  They are so sweet and I miss having one, but I can't trust them around my cat, not even the ones that have tested "cat-safe."  I've heard too many stories that begin "but he never showed any interest before"...  My male greyhound Jester was lethal on small furry things, and once the prey drive was triggered, it was impossible to control.  Still, I miss them.  They are great dogs.

That's great Barbara...I'm glad that Brownie did so well!!  My Ylab ^Valentine^ was terrified of people...men especially.  But she loved our neighbor, Ron.  Maybe it's because he was one of the first people to hold her when we brought her home as a puppy.

What's a TNT?....I'm just curious.  Is it some sort of grooming?
