Sam...

... so we've had Sam now for 6 months, for those unaware Sam is a greyhound whom we got from a rescue kennels - he's not an ex-racer, and it's been an experience to say the least.

He's a lovely, friendly dog but who obviously was treated quite badly in the past as he's something of a naughty scamp (to put it mildly). He's got some very bad habits (peeing in the living room for one) and some other behavioural issues that we're trying our hardest to train out of him. We've even enlisted help from "Barkbusters" (who right now aren't justifying how much they've cost us!).

Last night was another bad one, cue barking from Sam at 3am. Over the next few hours we tried our level best to get him to calm down and he eventually did around 5ish. With the alarm going off at 6:30 and me not sleeping since he woke us, I've not been feeling my best today.

I love the little terror, but he's such hard work! Barkbusters are coming back on Tuesday to give more training - howeve I am now seriously considering taking Sam to the vets to see if there's any medication we can give him to help. I don't really like the idea of medicating him, but he's so resistent to any training we're trying to do with him. Here's hoping Tuesday will be of better use.
