Pino Noir in all her glory!

Pino Noir in all her glory!

This tiny beauty is Lauren’s beloved Pinot Noir! She is a seven year old Italian Greyhound. Lauren has had Pinot Noir since she was eight weeks old and only weighed two pounds.

Today, she tops out at a hefty six pounds.

Most Italian Greyhounds can be a little stand-offish. Not the case with Pinot Noir. She is a cutie pie and she knows it! She is a huge flirt with male humans and she holds nothing back when she wants to be petted or picked up.

Her favorite things in life are chasing her mini tennis ball until she can’t stand up, cuddling on Lauren’s lap while Lauren works on the computer and laying in the sun. Pinot Noir is allergic to most everything so she is on a special diet of dehydrated vegetable-based dog food mixed with either salmon or ground beef. Her favorite treat is an all natural peanut butter chew.

She is quite the princess. Since Italian greyhounds have very little fat or fur they get cold easily. Pinot Noir has a beautiful collection of custom made sweaters from her aunt Jan. It is not unusual for her to go to her toy/sweater basket, pull out a sweater and place it at your feet to remind you she is cold.

She shares her home with a fourteen year old rescued Italian greyhound named Isabella. Isabella is going blind so Pinot Noir has become her seeing eye dog. She works hard to make sure Isabella doesn’t wander near the pool.

Both girls love to ride in the car to get Lauren’s morning beverage or run errands but they turn into whining messes if you head in the direction of the vet’s office!
