Happy Valentine's Day!

Today is one of Heart's favorite days. She would say, "my name is Heart, and Valentine's Day has lots of hearts. It's like a true Tinder romance. Swipe right for love!"

Of course, she's a dog so she can't say those things. She can't really say anything, but she does bark and cry sometimes if she's feeling chatty. Ultimately, Heart doesn't mind if it is Valentine's Day or any other day of the year--she just wants to show you some love!

Every day is a new adventure!

On Patrol

Heart had a great weekend. On Saturday she went to her first meet-and-greet at the 100 Oaks Petsmart. She was happy to see some friendly greyhound faces, but was ready to go after 30 or 45 minutes. So many new noises and smells got a little overwhelming!

Then she had a nice lazy Sunday watching TV, napping, and patrolling the (fenced in) back yard while the sun was out. She typically wants to do her business and head back upstairs, but after we put up a high-tech barrier (the blue chairs in the above picture), she decided to wander the yard for a bit.

She's getting better at stairs, but we've noticed that she prefers to be on her leash and led down them instead of tackling them on her own.

This week's new adventure will be teeth brushing!

Office Mascot

Heart has been coming into the office this week, and is a popular new employee. She likes to make new friends and enjoys all of the pets and attention she gets from people passing by.

If you want to meet Heart too, come by the 100 Oaks Petsmart on Saturday 01/27 and say hi!

Deep in thought

Heart, seen here deep in her existential musings on finding purpose in retirement, what it actually means to be a "good girl," and why the bunnies never want to play with her...

...but then all of that heavy intellectual lifting tired her out and she decided to assume the classic Greyhound roach position for a well deserved nap

Big Weekend!

Heartbreak Hotel, known as Heart to her friends, had a big weekend. She struggled to get into the car, but once we got going she was curiously looking out the window and helping to co-pilot until she got sleepy and took a nap in the back seat

Once we got her home we had to tackle the stairs. We live on the 2nd floor up a walkup, so mastering them is critical. She's a champ going up, but coming down can be a little scary sometimes. Usually a piece of chicken and a gentle nudge is all she needs. Once she gets going she can manage them, but it's still a slow process for her

To help Heart get used to retired life we took her out on a walk to a local bar. She got to meet lots of friendly new people, and even tried to play board games with us! While walking we did learn she doesn't like big noisy trucks, though.

All in all, Heart is doing great. She's a little unsure of her new retired life and she's getting used to all of the new noises and smells, but is getting more used it every day!
