We’ve been in Portland for two years now! We live in the Pearl District. Portland is very dog-friendly, and there are lots of fun things to do. Here we are at one of our favorite local spots, The Fields.
There are so many wonderful places to walk and explore urban living here.
It’s always sooooo exciting to go for a walk in the ‘hood!
But being in the Pacific Northwest…it does rain from time to time.
We don’t mind a little rain. We have raincoats. But being true Pacific Northwesterners, we never use umbrellas.
We’ve also made friends with other greyhounds in the neighborhood. This is Tiger, who looks more like a Tiger than our Tiger does.
Here we are at Tanner Springs Park with our friends Tiger, Erin, Maggie and Emma.
We do more than just hang out with our friends though. Our Tiger and Truman are blood donors at Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital. Our Hero Dogs!
DoveLewis is a truly wonderful place. It’s a really Greyt feeling to know that we are making a difference and are helping animals in need.
We’ll leave you with this reminder: April is Adopt a Greyhound month.
Welcoming Tiger, our newest Methow Dog! Here’s his profile from the local “Greyhound Dating Service”. Tiger came to live with us on March 7, 2012.
One thing the good folks at Greyhound Pets, Inc. left off his description is that Tiger likes shoes. He really likes shoes. Being a glass half-full type, Tiger’s love of human footwear has forced us to stop leaving our shoes haphazardly lying around. The apartment is looking much less cluttered these days. Thank you Tiger!
Tiger feels right at home. Here he is waking up on his very first morning with us.

He is now sporting a beautiful new collar from Karen’s Kollars.

Larry is really happy to have a new friend. He has been a little down since Aurelia left us in December. Here they are enjoying a beautiful day last summer in Winthrop.

There some exciting new changes to the Methow Dog website that will greatly enhance your experience interacting with us. We are also making it much easier for you to order your favorite Methow Dog treats online. Stay tuned…
Meanwhile, keep smilin’.

Methow Dog healthy treats are now available at Pet Adventure in Mountlake Terrace. We are so excited to have our treats at a convenient location for north Seattle dogs and their people. Stop by and say “Hi” to Keith!
I was surfing the backwaters of cyberspace and came across our original “Dog Blog.” We gave our greyhounds Aurelia and Ducati their own blog in 2006 when we got our Mazama property.

It was during those family camping trips that we formed the idea of Methow Dog as a business. Now, five years later, we are making the best dog treats ever
…and we still love camping out with the dogs in the beautiful Methow Valley.
What is the future of the greyhound if racing ends? There’s an excellent article about that in the current issue of “Celebrating Greyhounds” magazine.
