Abby 1/12/18 Shopping Spree!!

Abby here and I just wanted you to know about my best day ever. After being cooped up with all the snow, I got to go someplace special. Auntie Carroll called this place PetSmart but I called it the land of all things wonderful. I didn't know where to start. I wanted to see it all. I checked out all the toys and treats but couldn't decide on just one.



I may have gotten up close to check out some things. It all smelled so good!



Hi there bunny. You don't look so fast now.


I checked out the birds and cats too. None of them really wanted to play with me. I even saw my first non greyhound. The first dog was ok and just wanted to sniff. The little tiny one seemed like way more fun but auntie Carroll said she was too small for me to play with, especially with my feet. I just wanted to see if it squeaked.

I hope my forever home will let me go shopping sometime. I'm sure I didn't see it all.


Abby 01/11/18 I Don't Always Sleep

Hi I'm sure most of you think us greyhounds just sleep our days away. Well, not me. I like to spend my day visiting with all the humans in the house. I just walk right up and stand there. Before you know it, I'm getting eat scratches. Then I check out everything in the room. They all say I touch things too much but I don't think so.

Once all that's done, I find a toy to play with. Only after all of that done, I take time for a nap.




Abby - 01/08/18 We Have A Situation

Abby here and I need to post a complaint. See I woke up and went outside to do my girly business and something was wrong. There was just white stuff everywhere. It was even falling from the sky. I didn't know what to do. All the other dogs seem so calm but I was confused. I mean where am I suppose to my business.




Gone visiting

Ellie went visiting to a friend's house and met the resident Greyhounds. There was sniffing, running, and playing. Then, there was toy chewing, and some napping.
 Lots and lots of napping...

Ellie's Snow Day

Ellie had a fun snow day - her first one!
She wasn't too sure about this cold, white stuff at first.
 What's going on here?
This stuff is kind of weird...
She eventually decided to run and play. Fun was had by all.

Buster - Jan. 3 - Checking out the pet store

I tagged along to the pet store with my foster mom and dad and one of the resident hounds. I wasn't sure why we were hanging out there. Foster mom said it's good for me to get out and see the world. Well, there were a lot of interesting smells. But the best part was that I was very popular with other shoppers, so I got a lot of pets from people big and small. And a lot of treats for being a good boy.

Looking around to get the lay of the land.

See how handsome I am?

Cat toys?  Where's the dog toys?

No kittens home, but it sure still smells good.
