[b]OH MY GOODNESS!!! [/b]You guys spoiled us!! You got us the most amazing gifts!!

Our list of goodies........
For Remy......a huge red paw print stocking, "Doggy News" squeak toy, large & small tennis balls, canvas/fleece squeak toy, red spikey ball, green porcupine squeak toy, rope chew toy, cute horse with long striped legs with squeaks in the feet (he loves this!), blue & green fuzzy fabric squeak bone, red fuzzy dog, fuzzy hamburger toy, gourmet dogbone treats, a fox bottle skin (I have been wanting to get him one of these!), Nylabones, bully stick, Alligator shaped & beef sticks, peanut butter/carob bone, & "Santa's Helper" jammies!

For me..........a "Keep Calm & Carry On" mug (THANK YOU! This is my new mug...was tired of the "Happy 39th Birthday, Again" mug...lol), cute red/pink/white polka dot socks twisted in the shape of a cupcake (LOVE THESE!), cute glass snowman with hot cocoa mix inside, & an Italian Greyhounds Rule magnet...which was immediately put on the refrigerator!

You guys did too much! We are so grateful for this common bond that we all have here...the love of our IG's! I was also glad to see Remy active after having a bladder infection last week.....he hasn't had much energy. This really perked him up!

Thank you so much Erin, Jake, Asher & Ezekiel! I hope you & your family have a beautiful & Merry Christmas!

Here's pictures.....sorry if blurry! My mom was taking these & Remy was moving so fast she couldn't focus sometimes!

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so glad that you Remy loves it! I hope that he is feeling better. I seriousally couldn't stop getting things. Ash kept stealing things while I was packing and wrapping. It was hilarious. But I'm so glad to hear that you like everything. I can't wait to see Remy in those pj's. Hopefully they fit that big boy! I LOVED being a SS!!! lol

Well.....Remington asked his Grandma to alter his jammies so they will fit his fat little bum! Actually, the length is perfect....it's his chest that is so big....we have to alter everything that I buy "off the rack". My mom is working on it now & I will post pics as soon as she gets it done!

We just figured out today that the legs on the horse pull all the way through the body.....lol!

The Fox Bottle Skin has become his favourite! He was crinkling it SO LOUD the other night, I couldn't hear the TV!

It looks like you guys had so much fun opening gifts. I enjoyed seeing all of the pics. [img]http://www.igwhispers.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]

If you don't mind me asking, is Remy a typical Iggy size? I looked up the typical size and thought they were a bit smaller? Do you have his measurements and weight?

Happy Holidays

Hi Elle! Remy is NOT the typical size.....he is at the BIG end of the scale when it comes to IG's. I was almost afraid that I had a whippet when he first started growing....I adopted him at 4 months old. I verified with the rescue shelter that I got him from that he was indeed Italian Greyhound. The breeder would not give the rescue shelter his papers, but did give them his date of birth....odd!

He weighs in at 26 lbs. I have been working on getting his weight down....he was at 30 lbs. My biggest fight is the fact that when I'm working, he stays with my parents. My father LOVES to give him last bites of table food. That has now stopped....I busted my father in front of the vet! Remy's neck is 11-12", his chest is 22" & his length is 17". Believe me.....I know I have a BIG BOY! But that's just more of him to love!!!!

Ok thanks for letting me know. [img]http://www.igwhispers.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] I don't mind what size my Iggy will become (whenever I get one). I was just wondering, to see how my ig will fit in with my current fur pets. I have a great dane and a cocker spaniel and was thinking an ig would be close to my cocker spaniel in size (she's only 13 lbs and about 17" tall) but I could tell from the pic that Remy is bigger then my spaniel. But I agree with you bigger dogs are just more to love. Thanks again. [img]http://www.igwhispers.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]
