Yassou! Athena in Greece

Athena Darrough and her humans Bill and Eleni in Greece. Athena has found a unique 2-tiered very comfortable float and poses with her Mom. What a great summer vacation! She's made friends with all the flight attendants for her annual sojourn to the homeland. Great little beagle and pretty cool humanoids, too!

Athena was deeply moved during her first visit to the Moni (Monestary) Agias Triados in Meteora. She refused to discuss the matter with us at the time, but she was actually considering leaving us and embracing a monastic life in Greece. After giving the matter a great deal of consideration, and much to our relief, she decided against that path. She told us that she decided against the quiet life at Agias Triados because, not only are there no pet doors at the monestary, but the community does not allow dogs on the premises. Of course, as some of you may remember from her experience last year, she is in the process of forming a Greek Orthodogs community here. When it is up and running, they may just decide to assume spiritual control of Agias Triados. The question is, will they allow humans on the premises?

Athena is organizing a fund raising campaign and will be in touch shortly.

Bill, Eleni and Athena

ps: Athena may not have been completely forthcoming about her reasons for deciding against the monestary. We supect she may have been a little put off by that garish purple bus which is parked at the gate.


How do new dogs and babies get along?

The baby and the dog should never be left alone together.

However, Bassets are the least likely to be dangerous. There are other breeds such as the Labrador, the Golden Retriever, and the Collie that are unlikely to snap at children.

Adopting an older dog that has had experience with children is much better than adopting a puppy or a young dog without experience.

With puppies, teething is part of growing up - and sometimes they don't know the strength of their own jaws. Rather than riskng it, go with an older dog. That way, both parties can have fun & respect without getting into any trouble!!
