Had a reallyyyyy long and exciting journey yesterday and finally made it to my temporary destination until my forever one is found! Pretty sure that’s going to happen pretty darn soon too!!! I’m being told I’m such a good girl and it’s so easy for this family to be telling me that all the time!
So, I was a perfect passenger on the way to go to their house and slept the whole way; I even had to be woken up when we got there.
We did make one stop on the way; it was a place that had a ton of shiny new things that drive on 2 wheels! I wasn’t afraid of them at all and weaved in and out while we walked all around (I’m already a pro at walking on hard wood floor - they were pretty impressed that I didn’t even hesitate! I’m just such an easy walker on the leash .... don’t care to pull or zigzag, I like being next to someone while I’m walking.
Finally got to the house and got to meet 2 other black greyhounds just like me! (They say we’re CLBD - crazy little black dogs 🤣) and then I got to meet this little kid and I loved him and gave him a big huge snuggle-lean! I don’t even jump up - just love to drop my head on your lap and lean in for those scratches!
Needless to say, I settled right in! I tested every comfy bed they have all over the place on the floors here and finally found my favorite! And I slept right through the night (I did sing a little bed time song but just for a few minutes and then I was fast asleep until almost 8am!)
I can’t wait to share the pics but my foster-lady said she’s having some difficulties, so keep checking back to check them out!
Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you soon!
Hi my name is 'O Girl' but you can call me 'Girl' for short.
|Hi I am 'O Giril'|
|Getting my Massage|
|Checking out the sights.|
|Taking a Snooze|
|Wish I could have some of that Chicken Sandwhich!|
|Meeting my Foster Brothers - thats me on the left.|
I was a little nervous this morning when I was getting my bath and grooming, but by the time we got to my foster home, I was rested up and ready for anything. I met my foster brother, Mr. G, right away, and I think we're going to be friends. There was something that my foster mom, L, called snain (snow/hail) coming down when we went for a walk, but I didn't mind it.
I really wanted to meet the other dogs on the bike path and the squirrels, but L said we have to wait for that. (I'm not sure she'll ever let me meet the squirrels.) Even though the weather was bad, we saw some bicyclists and walkers, but I wasn't scared at all, even when the bikes were close to us.
Once we got home, I explored the whole house, including the bathtub, which made L laugh. I don't know why. I also met Miss Thing, who L says is a cat. I'm a little afraid of her, so I just let her sniff me until she goes away. Now I've had a busy day, and I'm tired, so I'm going to take a nap. I'll write more soon!
P.S. L says I should tell you that I rode in the car like a champ, and she would pick me for a road trip companion any time.
Foma says all the time that sharing is caring. I have love of caring then because I just want to share with everyone. My favorite thing to share is beds. The boys here aren't really into it but Dolly lets me join her as long as I don't lay on top of her.
1. Soft dog bed- I LOVE my dog bed and love to sleep and watch everything going on in the house from it. Definitely a must.
2. A crate- I like the safety of my crate, I don’t hang out there much but I like knowing it’s there if I get scared.
3. Lots of love- I LOVE people and I definitely require lots of love and attention from my new family.
Hope I didn’t miss anything on my list, and I hope that my new family can check off all of my items!!!
As promised my Foma made a couple of videos and pics of me doing my manners. Getting her to post them, well that was hard. She kept saying there wasn't enough light or her room was messy or her hand is in the way. I promised you guys would ignore all that and focus on the cute dogs, especially me in the bright maroon collar. So here goes.
This is me waiting to leave the bedroom in the mornings. We all need to pee but we can't go if we don't wait. Makes no sense to me but I do it. My bff Dolly doesn't care. She just bumps me with her toy trying to get out. She's special
This one is me waiting at the back door. Did I mention, this last makes us wait when we all have to pee.
I've been sulking for a while because, well I was disappointed. My forever family wasn't at the last adoption event. I met some nice people but we weren't a good match. I looked all over and my family wasn't there. I had my pouty face on all the way home. I just sat on the seat and looked out the window.
Then foster mom told me to cheer up. She says my forever family is still out there and they will find me. She even had a bag of treats in the car. That made the ride better.
Since I've been home, my Foma has been really working me hard on my doggy skills. I'm a shiny floor and stair master. I crate myself for meals and wait quietly to be told it's ok to come out.
Foma has some videos and pics of me doing my doggy stuff. She says my family will be happy to see that I'm learning all my house manners. So stay tuned for more updates on my progress.
Wow Foma almost forgot to tell you that if you want to meet me, you have to fill out one of those adoption applications. I'll be waiting for you.
Yes, yes I would like a treat to drown my sorrow. A huge bowl of ice cream when we get home would help too. Oh ok, just some more treats then.
Until next time,
