Kingston relaxes on the patio

I am Kingston. I am a male of few words. I usually let Mandy do the talking but she talked last time so I guess it’s my turn.

I’m old, 12 years 7 months, by greyhound standards. I mostly eat and sleep and go for short walks and mark new spaces. I think I have marked Karyn’s patio pretty thoroughly.

My people went away but I know they are returning. Karyn follows their directions well but I bark at her to deviate and give me more cookies but she sticks to the plan.

Daisy + Kingston on the patio

I like Daisy. She’s a wild girl. She zips around the patio like she’s in charge. I try to hang out with her as much as I can.
