My first Memorial Day retired. Foster mom didn't have to work for three days so that meant more time taking walks and lounging around. Foster mom said I'm just getting better and better on walks. I'm also learning the word, "Wait." Foster mom says it when she puts my food down and when she opens the backdoor. I'm learning that it means I should just stay where I am until she gives me the ok to move. Here's pictures of me lounging all weekend.
I have to say I am so sorry for the late blog, my foster human has been in a lot of pain and has been human sick. (at least that is what she said). I don't know the difference between human sick and greyhound sick. A lot has happened since my last post so here goes.....
I WENT TO A PICNIC!!!!!
Normally that would bring to mind a basket with hotdogs, cheese and some wine...Well all I got was to sit in this pen and greet people and let them love on me. My foster mum had to leave me there so people could see my wonderfulness. I must say I impressed at least two families. Wonder who will it be?????
I have also been doing real good at home, I don't pee. well at least FM hasn't blamed me for it, since it is a squat pee and not an aimed pee, whatever that means. I have lots of foster brothers and sisters so I kinda just get lost in all the flurry of fur. I am a very good boy. I do sleep in my crate at night but I don't really have to. Foster mom tells me I am perfect. I hope you all will agree. So come meet me on June 10th and see if I can go home with you. And now for your viewing pleasure,
Well I color me embarrassed. Yes that is my foster mum in the hot pink shirt and cat ear's, cat ear's really, this is a hound event mum you got a bit confused, Oh this is Reese he is adopted but we hung out together.
Sorry it took me a bit to introduce you to Sally. She came to us on the May 13th haul and has just been an absolute gem to have in our house! She was very shy and timid in this big new world and our house tends to be very active. (There's another greyhound, and 2 pitties in our pack, along with 4 cats!) It was probably very overwhelming and pretty sure she thought she was sent to an insane asylum - lol! She just kinda stood back and observed but was really interested in watching everything that was going on!
But finally, her beautiful and playful personality has come through. This morning she was even bow playing and doing zoomies (while our other hound watched her as if she was crazy because it was 6:30 in the morning!!!!) She does great in the crate; but, she definitely prefers an open-caged one vs the enclosed type. I even find her just chilling in it sometimes. Let's see, what else is awesome about Sally? Since the second she stepped in the house, she's had absolutely no interest in any of our cats ... didn't even want to sniff them or check them out! This is her chilling out on our back porch with Mr. Rum-Tug-Tugger right there with her.
Today was a great day because it was the Greyhound picnic. I met lots of friendly people who wanted to pet me and know all about me. They even let me run around for a while and I loved it.
Everyone said how loving and friendly I am. I even tried to escape the foster pen a few times, but I was corrected by Mr. Squirty and told no. I am still learning about my boubdaries, but Foster mom and dad say I will soon get the hang of it.
I am a pretty fast learner and I have only been off the track a week. I know to eat breakfast and dinner in my crate and I go inside with no problem. I know my name and respond when being called.
It's time for bed. I am ready after such an exciting day.
What a weekend. My FM told me we were going to have some company this weekend. I got really excited because I like being around other greyhounds. When the door opened, in came one dog, two dogs, three dogs. WOW. I didn't expect all this company. It is working out OK except they all want to love on my FM and it is hard for me to get in there for attention. My FM knows I need lots of love, so she comes to me for our special, private attention. Even with all this company, I still have lots of soft beds to lay on.
To tell the truth, I am looking forward to next week when FM goes to work and I can get some sleep.
Here is my latest picture. I sure am handsome, don't you think?
Bye till next time.
