Need clerical support?

Hey Kelly Girl!!!
So the temporary clerical is here! I even take shorthand. 
So I am a special gal and need a special home. I have a shortened tail from over wagging and that makes it go even faster!!

So beyond taking a memo I can manage the steps, sleep through the night, and walk on the leash. I can also hold down the couch like a pro. I'm still a little shy around people and eating my food, but I love my foster brother Bert and the cat as well. 

So if you need temporary clerical help, a wonderful wagging tail and a smile for miles, call Denise and tell her that your office needs this special grey!
(Here I am keeping the couch in place)

Kimmie is here!

Good Morning Friends...everyone is a friend to me! My name is Kimmie and I am two years old. My foster mom and foster brothers aren't quite sure what to think about me. I am a love bug and want to be WHEREVER you are. You need to use the bathroom?  I'm there. You want to watch TV?  
Well I'll watch with you. In fact last night I thought that maybe I could just get into the TV. Mom told me I couldn't though so I just decided I'd lay down instead. 

So here are my redeeming qualities which are many by the way....

  • I can do steps! 
  • I've started to learn "no"
  • I have no problem getting into your bed....(mom said her policy was no fosters in bed with her. I helped her change her mind because she said she just needed sleep!)
  • I like my foster brothers
  • I didn't try to eat the birds
  • The cat is really cool and she and I are friends! I love friends :)
  • I go potty outside (mom lets me out all the time)
  • I didn't tear up the house when mom went out for an hour last night

So if you can't resist this sweet face, please contact Denise and tell her that I'll adopt you. By the way, are you housebroken?

Joshlinn is here!

Well I'm here. I came in quietly and am the best thing since sliced bread! Oh and as you can see, I make a great study partner.

 My foster sister is studying medical terminology and I'm an expert. So i decided to help (she's not the brightest bulb in the pack in my opinion so she needs my help).
So here you can also see my beautiful ear. My foster family laughs at that ear but you know what? It is documented to show intelligence. That's why my foster sister asked me to help.

So let's talk about me, because that's why you're here right? I'll be 4 years old in December and would love to be a lap dog...I try regularly. If complete park on the lap isn't possible, I'm content to just stuff my nose into your arm! And I give kisses :)

So during the day my foster family is gone and you know what?  I use a muzzle to make sure I don't get myself into trouble. Even better they have three birds and a cat! The birds are neat but the cat.....she smacks me. My foster mother says she's playing. I'm still scared though! Ok and last but not least.....I can go up steps!!! Going down is a little scary but I'm getting there. Better yet I sleep through the night, but boy when my people get up wooo hoo is it a squeaky toy / stuffy party! 

So anyway if you're interested in having me interview you for a possible adoption, please contact Greyhound Rescue and let them know you'd like to make an appointment with me.  From there I'll check my availability on my calendar.

Cindy is here!

Hi folks.  It's me Cyndi Lauper....because Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Right?!!   Ok it's not Cyndi Lauper it's Cindy Loo Whoo from Horton Hears a Who. Alright's Wills Cindy. Now doesn't that sound stupid? and that I am not! I am smart as a whip and really making myself comfortable here.  Rumor has it my foster mom doesn't like the young female greyhounds, but guess what?  This 20 month old babe that I am has changed that, and let me tell you why....

Well I arrived here last Sunday, Just in time to get ready for the holiday weekend.  I was pretty shy the first day but since these people talk really funny to me and pet my head and kiss me I decided to open up.  So here's the list of my fantastic qualities:

  • I figured out the stairs...not sure what the big deal is.  The old fart greyhound, my foster brother who is 13 can't even do them anymore.  he has to be carried up.  How pathetic!
  • I am housebroken.....I am left all day while these people disappear for about 6 hours and what do you know, I never pee in the house....that's gross.
  • I walk pretty nicely on a leash.
  • I sleep in my human foster sister's room on a bed- she does put up a gate so I don't wander.
  • I love rawhide chippies, and STUFFIES!!!!  Wow there were some in the backyard and I just whipped through the yard like the greyhound that I am :)
  • I now know my name!  Yes sirreeee, I'm Cindy and if you call me you're probably thinking of giving me food, kisses or something great.
So here's the downside.....get it is......I'm a pig when I eat.  I shovel a whole bunch of food in my mouth then cough it all over the kitchen floor and then walk around picking it up.  I don't think the other two dogs here know what to think of that.  The people just laugh.  It's so embarrassing.

So anyway, mom got a picture or two of me.  I'm prettier than the pictures show.  My ears also turn inside out when I run in the yard and I have a fantastic tuxedo on my chest.  My paws have dainty white tips to them and my tail does too.  Other than that I'm little and sleek and BLACK!!!  Oh and the picture in the tub, well when I arrived I decided that that was where I wanted to start out.  So I jumped in.  Since then I've discovered other areas to make myself cozy.

Sill chillin...

Hello my public...wanted to update you on my status.  Hmm...kinda seems like a dating website, right?

Here are a couple recent pictures of me. 

The first one shows me with my foster brothers. I'm the good looking one with the snazzy collar in the middle. The next one is with me out near my foster mother's beehives.  Not sure why everyone is so scared of them.  They leave me alone- probably because I'm not foolish enough to stick my nose in the hive!

Anyway I've been a little bored around here.  I need a change of scene.  Don't get me wrong, I love my foster home and I really need a home with at least another dog, but I want a permanent place.  I sleep at the bottom of my foster mother's bed and cope well with being in the house with my foster brothers while everyone is at work or school all day. (shhh, don't tell anyone. You know those pictures with the dogs playing poker?! where do you think they come from?! This is how we 'cope'!) I've been sharing this beautiful fall weather with my foster brothers, but I'd rather share it with you. 

So although I'm comfortable here, I'd love to discuss your adoption of me.  if you're interested, please let Denise know and she'll forward me your application for approval.

Ok so it's a stupid name...Ale Corny

So here I am. Yes my track name is Ale Corny.  Ok I'm thinking the ale part is ok.  Ale is good, or so my foster mom says it is, but CORNY?  Really? What were they thinking?! Anyway, I go by Max.  That's much more mature, manly, masculine, and cool.  Don't you think?

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I'm four years old and I'm a return.  I was in a home for about six months and after all kinds of training-yes I'm obedience trained- I was still experiencing separation anxiety.  Well I got news for you...that all disappeared when I arrived at my foster home. Do you know why? There are other hounds here! Isn't that cool? The one gets a little snarky with me, but I put up with it all.  Because, wow, I get walks here and they play with my ears and call me stupid names. I love it.  It's great.  So here are my credentials: I'm housebroken, I handle steps like a champ, I eat like a gentleman, I walk well on a leash and best of all I accept and give kisses. 

So today I went to the greyhound picnic.  A lot of people wanted to adopt me but it wasn't the right time.  I tried to tell them it was the perfect time and their dog thought so too.  Couldn't convince them so I'm here waiting for YOU! Yes YOU to undergo my scrutiny and make me your forever dog.  The only criteria is that you have at least one other dog.  I like dogs (btw cats and birds aren't half bad either).  So let Denise know if you'd like me to inspect you and your other dog for me to adopt you.
