Does Peanut Swim?

It is possible that my niece, Peanut, might swim if we let her sink, but this is as close as she comes to swimming.  She is just way too relaxed.
But just to prove that Peanut is not a parapalegic, I wanted to share this clip of Peanut coursing a mutt.  Run, Peanut! Run!
But Peanut is all in all a lazy greyhound who will take a butt scratch from whoever she can get one from.
And for Elizabeth, Travis thought swimming and retrieving was a blast!  He even dock jumped (Click Here).

Peanut is so at home in the water she hardly needs to swim! Talk about relaxed. But she's got some moves when she wants to run:) What a crack up with the horse. Are they old friends or was that just a random happening?

I've watched your videos of Travis dock diving in the competitions. He was spectacular:)

Peanut and Lester, the horse, belong to my sister. So they are familiar... although Lester loves animals and would scratch anyone's butt. And Peanut... well, Peanut isn't picky!

Love my Travis boy! In 2 weeks he will have been gone for 3 whole years...

Hi Y'all,

Travis could have been an honorary Chessie! Or maybe a tall thin yellow Lab since he doesn't have wavy hair.

My Human says if she'd known what good retrievers greyhounds were...

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

Ha ha ha ha ha ha! I think I'm in love with Peanut! That dog definitely needs her own blog, because I think she's working on becoming the star of this one. I kept thinking the videos couldn't get cuter or funnier, but they did! I love that one of Travis retrieving, too. He was one of a kind!

Peanut sure has tones of personality!

I love watching Travis swim,you can tell he's having a great time. Dock diving is such a fun sport to watch. I've always wanted to try it, though I think I'd look mighty silly with a dachshund.

Mutt coursing is fun. Parker has learned to stop when the greys come charging, so no more mutt coursing in my yard.

These videos are great! Could Peanut possibly look any more laid back in that "swimming" video? I enjoyed the lure coursing video too. I'm officially a Peanut fan!! Have a greyt weekend!
