    DA. I have had Jodi from birth and that is her behaviour too. I am wondering if it is just a natural inquisitive wanting to be with you age thing now. She too is everywhere with me inside, whinging if I am out of sight when she is inside.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

During the day too she is inside a lot so I really feel it is litter mates they may be missing, rather than mum.
    Yes, I would agree with you 100% there Di. Have 2 or more pups, and I have rarely if ever witnessed it happening. One pup alone taken away from all it has known...well, it's bound to happen.

    Will see how things go tonight after my attempts today to get her used to being outside alone.

    Yep, that's usual Di. You are her world. Literally. She may follow your husband, she may play, cuddle him, whatever, but my guess is you are it in her eyes.
    Leave her, and she will 'cry.'

    Thanks guys, you've just given me justification to adopt a greyhound before buying a puppy

    Not quite. My point is she has those same behaviours YET, still has mum and litter mates around. They spend most of the time together. I often have 2 inside at a time and they are like this. Having this litter has really opened my eyes to a lot. Even thogh I didn;t want it I have learned so very much about behaviour etc.

    Blue heelers have been known as "blue glue". Depending on their mood - you may find yours is stuck by the nose to the back of your knee. Frosty alternates between spending hours in the back yard stalking mice but being very careful not to damage any (sigh). Between that and following me around everywhere. Depending on what I'm doing she may lie down and sleep but if I stand up and leave the room - she's right with me, because that's where she wants to be. And that's why hiding works so well as a recall technique. Doesn't work so well with beagles.

    Inca plays hide and seek. I am finding it fun. I run as fast as I can and hide behind a tree, while she 'catches' me. Mind you, I'm getting friggin dizzy going round and round the tree!
