In the Beginning:
There were no Grande (large) Podengos in the United States. This is a chronicle of how this changed.
Then there was this face!
From the fields of Portugal - Sticking her tongue out - and I knew that she was going to be mine.
Coming to America
Not long after - she left Sunny Portugal for the Minnesota Winter and with the help of my friend Sally who drove to the Airport in Chicago in a blizzard to pick her up - the Podengo Grande Smooth was now in the United States - So then there was ONE.
Snow, Cold - bring me back out later.
New friends to meet - like Sarge the Basenji - he's a littel nosey if you ask me.
My favorite thing it to chill out in the back yard.
There is always bugs to explore - I don't like the snakes though - they suprise me. Somtimes I find baby bunnies - what a tasty snack!
Standing still practice
For some reason everyone here seems to want me to stand still. That is so boring - there are no bugs or birds to chase, no rocks to investigate - no neighborhood kid to bark at - boring ...... but here I stand.
So she just kept growing and growing.....
For a while we would wait and watch for her ears to go up - but they were so darn cute out to the side we really had mixed feelings.
Look at those growth plates - lots of room to grow
