Monday 20 June 2011: Cyclops
Hooligan, Italian Grey Hound, by birth, has earned his name by all his mischief over many years.
He is in fact very bionic - his front legs have metal plates, when, in his the early years he jumped off a pavilion and fractured both legs.
I have known him since he was a pup, and he has always been more than delightful.
My daughter's dog for many years, but, when they relocated to Oz, 4 years ago, he became, our charge, more or less.
Mishaps occured when Deedle the Dane had to assert his alpha position, on more than one occasion.
The loss of his eye was due to a growth that could not positively be identified.
He has since coped very well, has become Mommy's dog (mine!), shares his daylight hours inside of the house and behaves extremely well. Never a mishap.
Not young any more, with a long standing back injury, he copes well and we hope to have him around for as long as possible.
