I have been so busy being cute and having fun I haven't had time to post here. It is not that I don't want to tell you about me. It is just that there are so many other fun things to do.
It is cold here today, but it is warm in my foster home. I went out to "do my business" and broke into a major run. I went around the yard five times at top speed. One of my foster brothers just stood and watched. The other brother ran with me for the first two times, but then he just stood and watched too. I am so FAST and AGILE, not to mention how cute I am. After that run, I had to come in a take a major nap.
Speaking of naps, I love taking naps on my foster mom's bed. She keeps telling me that foster pups are not supposed to get on the furniture. I keep telling her that her bed is not furniture; it is a sleeping place and that is what I do when I am on there. Plus I make myself real small so she hardly notices I am there.
I was a little worried about Christmas, but Santa found me here without any problems. We all got some neat toys that squeak and crackle. I am working on removing the squeakers and crackle in all of them.
I hope everyone has a happy New Year and that 2018 brings you a new pup. Maybe it will be me. I am hoping for a new furever home in 2018.
Thanks for reading about me.
Well I'm back with auntie Carroll. I was having a hard time getting the hang of potty training at my foster home so auntie Carroll said I could stay with her for the holidays. I've been working really hard for 2 weeks and I think I'm getting it! I'm on this thing called a schedule and I'm learning to go potty as soon as I get outside. No messing around or playing with the other dogs. Auntie Carroll throws a potty party and I get a treat. I really think we can skip the party and just go right to the treat. I like those.
I've been learning to be super quiet in my crate and how to hang out in there when it's time for meals. I've been so good in the crate at night that I've graduated to sleeping in Auntie Carroll's room at night with all the other pups.
I get lots of free time to check out the house and all the different rooms. I tend to touch things too hard and sometimes I knock them over. I'm just really curious and I'm not afraid to explore new things. I'm learning a new phrase called Leave It which means I shouldn't touch or pick up items or stick my long nose into certain places. I still like to touch it and then leave it but Auntie Carroll says that's not how it works.
The best part about visiting all the rooms is there's always a comfy bed. Here's a few pics of me napping. It's not my favorite thing but it's what all the other dogs do so I follow their lead.
Here he is, each month with one of his completely different, unique, signature looks:
So, there you go, an entire year of Sandy. He's pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking and he plans on finding out what that is.
I'll keep you all posted on his progress as he learns to turn left. You can keep up with Sandy by eugoogle-izing "Sandy isn't an ambi-turner." Coming soon, pics of his modeling tour in Malaysia, where he reunites with his buddy the Prime Minister!
You know, if you want to help Sandy find out there is more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking or you just want this handsome feller with all this depth and range, he IS looking for a home, not for just one measly year, but forever! I'm sure he can help your home look good and do other stuff good, too!
|Foster mom thought I looked cute with antlers. I don't think so, but I was willing to try.|
|Nothing like a comfy bed.|
|The resident hounds have been very good about sharing with me. I'm the one in the front.|
|It got really windy one night. I couldn't believe that the resident hounds could just sleep through all of it.|
|Sharing with the other resident hound. I'm in the back.|
|I'm learning how to get comfortable.|
|My thoughtful look: what will my forever family be like?|
|We go out for a walk almost every morning. I was fascinated by the Christmas lights.|
|I'm not a counter surfer, but this counter's set at 30" which makes it easy to sniff.|
|I stood still long enough for foster mom to get a photo of me.|
|What are those resident dogs doing now?|
|I love being outside. I don't even mind the cold! But for walks, foster mom makes me wear a sweater.|
I didn't go straight to my foster home. I spent a couple of days at auntie Carroll's house with her 3 pups. We all got along pretty well. They showed me around the yard and house. I was very interested in every room of the house and I checked every inch of them. Everything was so new and different. I didn't have any trouble with the shiny floors. I found these wonderful beds and each dog got to pick one. Auntie Carroll had to point out the beds a few times before I settled into one but I like them.
Hi I'm Viesta.
I already know what you're going to say....that's a weird name. I agree and think Abby might be a better name. I don't really have a preference yet.
I started my journey into retirement last weekend with 3 of my friends. I had a long ride from greyhound central down to VA and I like to ride in comfort. I climbed up on the seat of the van and slept quietly. Auntie Carroll let me ride on her back seat too. She says I ride like a pro. I think that's a good thing.
It's Joe. This weekend I saw the most amazing white stuff falling from the sky. I stuck my nose in it and it was so cold. I ran around outside while my foster dad shoveled the deck to make it easier for us dogs to get around.
I hope it snows again real soon. See you all around.
Now, with a name like Sandy, you'd probably expect... I dunno... this...
but since HE is neither, and decidedly NOT a girl greyhound, I like to call him Mr Sandman. Now, to help you remember, I have written a completely original, not-inspired-by-any-other-song-trust-me jingle. It's a catchy tune. And completely unlike anything you might have heard before. In 1958. by The Chordettes. At all.
He's the cutest foster that I've ever seen (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Give him a bed so he can roll over (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Then tell him that his fostered nights are over
Mr. Sandman, he needs a home (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Don't have nobody to call his own (bung, bung, bung, bung)
your eyes are like a magic beam
Mr. Sandman, you're such a dream
Then tell him that his fostered nights are over
Mr. Sandman, he needs a home
Don't have a family to call his own your eyes are like a magic beam
He's got a pair of eyes with a "cute puppy" gleam
and you can take him all over town
Mr Sandman, somewhere to live (somewhere to live)
Would be so peachy for you to givehis eyes are like a magic beam
Mr Sandman, you're such a dream
My name is Helen and I am still a puppy. I was born in March of 2016 so that makes me 21 months old. I have never raced, but please don't hold that against me. I like to play, play and play and sometimes eat and take naps. I am a pretty happy little girl.
I am living with my foster family which includes two boy greyhounds. They are both in love with me, even if I do say so myself. They are both "older" so I can run rings around them.
I am looking for a family that will embrace my puppydom. I like to get and give kisses and I especially like snuggling on the bed with my foster mom. She tells me that foster pups are not supposed to get on the furniture, but I think I am an exception to that rule.
If you think I might be a good fit for your family, give the folks at GEGR a call and they will tell you all about me and maybe set up a "meet and greet."
Watch this page for more pictures of me and my sweet face.
I quickly figured out the most comfortable bed in the place and the perfect place to lay down in the kitchen: on the heat register. I figured out the steps pretty quickly too. Here's a few pictures from my first few days.
|I'm the one in the back on the rug and on the heater.|
I can't believe that any dog would choose the hard
cold floor over a nice rug and warm back end
|Here's the world from my view.|
|Foster mom wanted you to see my awesome profile.|
