Let us introduce you to Tigger. November 2022
Tigger is still only 2 years old, and he has been with us for a year. Why might you ask? Well, because he is not a normal greyhound, he is a greyhound version of Tigger the tiger, who bounces everywhere. This is Tigs boing boing boing everywhere – the Tigger song was written for our Tigger – if you sing along you get a character assessment of our boy. If you want a cuddly Tigger in your life, then you need to read on – his bottom is definitely made of springs
The wonderful thing about Tiggers / Is Tiggers are wonderful things / Their tops are made out of rubber / Their bottoms are made out of springs / They’re bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun / But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is I’m the only one / Tiggers are cuddly fellas / Tiggers are awfully sweet / Everyone else is jealous / That’s why I repeat and repeat / The wonderful thing about Tiggers / Is Tiggers are marvelous chaps / They’re loaded with vim and with vigor / They love to leap in your laps / They’re jumpy, bumpy, clumpy, pumpy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun / But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is I’m the only one / I’m the only… one.”
He is a big friendly boy who is still very much a puppy for 10 minutes a day when he goes crazy throwing his toys around and having fun. For the rest of the time, he is lovely – and once it’s bed time he doesn’t move for 9 hours. He is still with us because not everyone wants a 45 kgs of puppy. When he first arrived, he simply did not know how to behave as no one had ever taught him – now he knows what the greyhound rules are but he still with us because of his happy disposition and tiggerness.
- He loves his walks
- He loves to sleep and can do this anywhere. In the video he is fast alseep in the middle of a busy event with live music!
- He is housetrained
- He travels really well in the car
- Once he is asleep, he is fast asleep
- He is super cuddly and friendly
- He is stunningly beautiful and he always smiles. He is good with other dogs but can be a little OTT with them – would suit an only dog or a bossy female who tells him off
