One Happy Greyhound

Sturgess is taking a nap, so Foster Dad is checking in for him.

Sturgess is a very happy boy. He loves to roll in the grass, and waits for someone to come over and rub his chest.

He also likes to run around the yard with a tennis ball.

He wags his tail any time he has a chance to meet someone. And, he wags it at us all of the time when we are feeding him, or getting ready to go out to potty, or just passing by as he is lounging on a dog bed.

One very happy boy.

I'm Still Available Folks!

Hey everybody! Sturgess here!

Well, I'm still available to be your best friend! I'm really getting into this retirement gig. Sleep, eat, attention ... and for that I don't have to do anything!

I went to a meet and greet yesterday. You can see me here with my foster friend Dakota. He's looking for a forever home too.

This is me on the way home after the meet and greet. Being adorable for 3 hours is really hard work. I napped on the way home, napped after I got home, and after my last turnout, I self-crated because I was ready for bed!

But, today's another day, and I'm up and looking for love.

Busy Weekend!

Hey everybody! Sturgess here!

I had a SUPER busy weekend! Saturday, I went to Barktoberfest. I've never seen so many non-greyhound dogs in all my life! And a lot of them were wearing costumes.

I got to meet a lot of people (and dogs), and had a great time. I really loved all of the pets and ear scratches I got.

This is me near the end of the day. Boy I was tired, but happy!

Then, Sunday I got to go to the annual GPA Nashville annual fall picnic. Some of my other foster brothers and sisters were there too ... Fire, Berry, Friday, Corra, Dakota, Rio, and Dream (maybe more, I don't count very good). I got to meet a lot of people, and a BUNCH of new greyhounds that I didn't already know.

This is me on Monday ... still tired. Being a celebrity is hard work.

But, I'll be out and about again this coming weekend. Check the GPA Nashville schedule of events or look for the Monday and/or Friday emails to see where I'll be.

I hope to meet my forever family real soon. I'm a loving, laid back, happy boy, and I can't wait to meet you!

Resting up for Barktoberfest

Shhhh! Everyone please be quiet. Sturgess is resting up for his appearance at Barktoberfest tomorrow. If you want to meet a sweet, very well behaved, tail wagging boy, then come out to Barktoberfest.

Here's info on the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1794638007220355/

Now, Sturgess is worried ... he's worried that he won't have anyone come by to pet him tomorrow. Barktoberfest just won't the same without someone to give him a neck scratch.

Retirement is the BOMB!

Hey everybody! Sturgess here!

As you can see in the first picture, I'm really enjoying this retirement gig! I've just fit right in to my foster family. I haven't growled at anyone, and no one has growled at me.

My foster parents say that I'm a remarkably good boy. No accidents in the house. I go in the crate (sometimes a little bit of kibble makes me want to go in a little quicker). I sleep all night long and don't make a peep ... I just wait until my foster parents get up, then I'm ready to get up.

Well, writing is very tiring, so I think I'll go back to napping. It's just a few more hours until supper, and I *LOVE* supper!!

If you want to meet me in person, I will be at Barktoberfest this Saturday (10/21) ... check out the list of events on the right hand side of the gpanashville.org page for details on this great event!

Sometimes when I relax, my teefies show. But I'm not mean!

Hey Nashville!

Hey everybody! Sturgess here!

I'm new to Nashville! When I arrived, I got hugged and petted, then got a full spa treatment ... nails, bath, photo. I also got checked by a real nice vet, and I got some meds to take home! Wow! And I didn't even have to pay ANYTHING for this luxurious treatment!

Here you can see me chilling on a bed in my foster home. I live with 2 greyhounds and a funny looking little greyhound that they call a Beagle. I was curious about him, but after some checking out, I realized he's just one of the pack here.

I'm really enjoying this retirement gig! I get to sleep all day, sleep all night, get fed twice a day, get taken out to potty and play several times a day. And I don't have to do ANY work for this!! It's all free!!

They tell me that I'm in this foster home until I find my forever home. That sounds great! I hope someone out there reading this is looking for a very loving, well behaved boy. That's me!!
