About Italian Greyhounds: don’t get one!

Ten years ago I made the mistake of buying an Italian Greyhound, and have been ruing that day ever since. Oh, he’s wonderful in so many ways, and dreadful in precisely two, both of which are about the bottom end: (1) he gobbles up cat poo like it’s his favourite hot meal, and (2) he’d much rather empty his bladder and bowels in the house than in the spacious garden. And, going on what I’ve read quite extensively about the breed, it’ll go on like this until he passes mercifully on. 

Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not wishing him an early death – at least, not when he’s not peeing and pooping in the house – but I’m being a realist. You couldn’t convince me to take on another, and I heartily suggest you don’t, either.

Thankfully, with extreme vigilance these horrors can be minimised, and luckily for him that he does strike a damn fine pose.
