Helldee has been in our family since Feb 01 after a brief stay with a family that lived in a 2 bedroom condo with no yard. Coming into our family with a rescue greyhound was great for Helldee. At first Max our rescue Greyhound was not that happy with her. But soon they were pretty inseparable. She really got Max moving around a bit more with her playing and chasing him around. It was quite funny watching a little Basenji chase after a horse of a Greyhound around the house.
About 2 years ago Max had a major stroke and we had to put him down. It was truly tough on our family and Helldee. She has gained a few pounds since then but I don't agree with the obese statement from our vet. She is more curvy than obese. I take her for walks about twice a week as my father and mother cannot. She pulls like she is trying to move a small building but the walks are good for her and me.
Besides that my Dad has made to "perches" for her so she can keep track of the front of our neighborhood. I have attached some pictures of our Great Gal.
We have replaced sections of our backyard grass many times because of Max and Helldee's urine. So 2.5 years ago my parents put artificial grass in our back yard. Neither dog seemed to mind and used it just fine. Now I always tell my friends my dogs have the most expensive toilet in town!
