Thank you too! Learnd something again... I thought i knew the Pedengo but obviously only knew the larger size.
Never seen a Podengo Pequeno before didn't know they excisted. And indeed the size and the wire coat and in the UK the last thing one would expect they are Portugese Podengos pequenos. They look mistakenly similar to a terrier breed also the smooth coat one could go through for a terrier. :)

Actually always thought that the Wipphet and the Italian Greyhound were the smallest hound breeds and they never were my favorite. I guess today i found my favorite small hound breed the Podengo Pequeno. 😍

Most people make the same assumption about a Terrier, so it's normal and the Podengo Pequeno is not that well known outside of Portugal, they are bred for hunting and the smaller version are for hunting rabbits, descendants from the pharaohs hound.
I actually had Pixie run with two Italian Greyhounds in the park when she was younger and the owners of the Greyhounds were amazed she could keep up with them (she is slow now at 14 ;)), she was really fast and both loved chasing squirrels.

That Halloween photo is epic haha my rock stars :) If I do ever get another dog they will be Podengos for sure ;)

We lost Sophie in 2011 at 13yrs cross Border Collie when he arrived as a pup my daughter brought home a kitten from a school friend They grew up constant companions Sooty often following on walks Sooty passed away in around 2018 quite elderly. We got another Border Collie in 2012 but the cats never really bonded like with Sophie and Jess is fiesty temperamental anyway but is my company now just me and him. Would have been better left as a working collie probably. Pet the word doesnt cover it when the cat dog budgie passes they are part of family

This came up on my time line and in fact was a few years ago but the photos made me laugh.
Lotty had found a bag of filter carbon and decided it would be a good place to sleep for a few hours ….

We had something similar with our last dog, a white golden retriever. One day for a reason only known to herself, she stormed off and rolled where a burnt out vauxhall nova had been just removed in the woods (burnt out vauxhall novas were quite a common sight for a few years bizarrely). She came back looking like a black labrador and it took quite a lot of shampoo to get her vaguely white again.

Yes all your scape truly resamble animals.. I think this one looks like a panter.
Haha, good observation. She’s a Bombay, and bred to look like a panther. But she’s a rescue cat and quite small for the breed.

Haha, think the cat's trying to add extra hardscape (or soft) 🙈
Got to her just in time 😁

Our local band of noisy vandals, helmeted guineafowls, and their more laid back house mates on their daily outing (too many foxes, goosehawks and careless dog owners around here for them to be outside of their pen unsupervised). With everyone trying to make the most of these last nice days before the autumn weather truly starts.
