Breakfast time! Sorry I don't post more. I loose my phone to my granddaughter quite often. Rest assured, this big cow dog has made himself right at home. He most definitely shines when he is with his own kind. I have nothing negative to say about this guy. He is the perfect houseguest.

Khan has been a perfect gentleman at his foster-foster house. He does need company to be content. I don't think it matters whether it's two-legged or four legged.

Learning how to dog

The resident hound has been pretty persistent about getting me to play with him, and I'm typically an expert at sleeping through his attempts. Today, however, I felt was a good day to indulge him...and I think I liked it!!!

Resting up for today’s Meet-n-Greet!!

I’m pumped (can’t you tell??) to spend the afternoon at the Petsmart in 100 Oaks. Can’t wait to see some familiar greyhound faces, and hopefully meet lots of potential adopters! My foster home is cool and all, but I’d really like to find my forever home today!

Perks of living downtown - so many things to do! So many friends to see!

My foster home is on top of this pet shop called Petwants, which always has a ton of new friends waiting to meet me. The store owner is very generous with treats, and we stop by once or twice a day on our walks just to say hi. This is great for me because 1) treats... but also 2) I’m getting introduced to all types of new dogs.

The tourists downtown always stop me on our walks to ask about my life as a racing dog. I’m surprised at how many people don’t know about us! I know that if more people knew how chill and affectionate and loving my breed is, there would be no more greyhounds left to adopt!

Meditation 101

My foster mom said it was rude to sleep while company was over, but this is just who I am. I have perfected my meditation practice, nothing can bother me!!

Did you know Starbucks makes Puppchinos???

The resident hound has been showing me all the best ways to get treats around here. Every morning we stop by his friends at Starbucks to get attention. But this morning they gave us a Puppachino to share.

This week is my first full week where my new foster mom goes to work at her office Tuesday through Thursday, so I’ve had to learn how to handle being in a crate for 7-9 hours. She has a camera pointed towards me in my crate so she can check on me (stalker!!!!). The first day (Tuesday) was rough, I whined a lot. But not enough to disturb any neighbors thankfully. Second day (today, Wednesday) is much better. I’m spending more time asleep, and less time whining and pawing the crate door. I think I’m getting used to the alone time, and I’m hopeful for how tomorrow will go when Foster Mom goes to work again.

Not an action shot

I am cozy as can be sleeping like this while my foster mom works from home. I know she’s jealous of me and my ultimate snooze pose.

My new human friend

I’m a downtown dog now!

So I’m in a new foster home as of today, surprise everyone! I kept getting spooked by one of my foster parents for no particular reason so I got switched into a new home to see if I’d do better there. I am doing great with all types of people so far - I have no particular issues with men, women, tall people, short people, any skin color, kids, cats, etc. I’m an everybody-hound.

My new foster home has a beagle and a cat (pictured above...she was showing me the view from her favorite spot in the apartment). I get along with both of them great, but I still love my own kind more.

In my last foster home I was always with the two resident greyhounds, which was fantastic because I never felt alone (they’re my people, ya know). I slept with them, was crated near them, and always had a familiar buddy. Here, however, is a little different. For bed, the resident beagle and cat left me all alone so they could go sleep with their foster mom, and I was alone in the living room all night. I whined about it because...well....hey! You wouldn’t want to be alone on your first night in a new home either! So New Foster Mom let me in the bedroom to sleep near her and the resident dog and cat, and then I was so much better. I think this first night was just rough because I’m new here, but maybe my future home would be best with other animal residents who I can be close to.

On Duty

I have found my new job...I guard the door. That way, the other dogs in the room can't get out without going past me. Sneaky, huh?

I've had a fabulous week. No. 1 - the bump on my left rear leg (you can sort of see it in this picture. It's down toward the bottom of my foot) isn't cancer. I think they used the word "nine" but I don't have nine of anything so I'm not sure about that. Whopee! I'm adoptable and I'm small animal safe!!

# 2, my weight is up to 68.5 pounds. Pretty soon I'll be back up to my racing weight of 71. How about that? It's going to suck tho, because when I get there, they will stop feeding me lunch!

Today, I'll be at the Bumpus Harley Davidson dealership in Murfreesboro for Meet and Greet from 11-1 Come by if you get the chance.

Sunny Monday

Don't you love this sunny weather? Boy, I do. As a racing dog, I've never had the luxury of asking to go out and stay out as long as I'd like so yesterday, I layed out on the deck a lot. Oops. Bad idea.

I got a sunburn on my nose, belly and bare behind. Yowy. Just like my two-legged friends, I can get skin cancer from to much sun. So, I'm adjusting my sunbathing schedule to avoid those intense hours between 10 a.m.-3 p.m. That should help. Some dog sunscreen would help, too. Gotta get the two-leggeds to look into that.

Meanwhile, this whole living-as-a-pet thing is going pretty well. I'm not so freaked by my reflection in the storm door and I love laying in the livingroom in the evening while the two-leggeds stare at that box. Still a bit unsure about those big wheely things on the ceiling, even if I do like the down-draft they make. I'm eating well and almost back up to my racing weight. Still waiting to hear about the biopsy on the bump on my back left leg. Should know more tomorrow.

More New Friends

This is my new best friend, Russell Rine. Don't we look good together?

We were at the Spring Hill M&G yesterday where we met for the first time and we bonded right away. His greyhound, Hannah, (you can see her on the floor on the red bed) wasn't too thrilled with the bro-mance but we hit it off like gangbusters.

Russell fed me treats and walked me and kept his hand on me the whole time. He did confess I can't come home with him, but assurred me there's someone out there for me. IS IT YOU??

Natural Charmer

Wow. New person in the house. Someone willing to pet me and feed me. I love this pet stuff. This is so much more interesting than the racing kennel.

Ear Alert

How about these ears? Like them? They're so pointy I think you could cut cheese with them! I show them off as often as possible. It's been a busy week here. I've gained 8 pounds, so I'm up to 61 pounds...just 11 more to go. Not bad for having been in town less than a week.

I've learned to ask to go out...no housebreaking mistakes...yeah, me! and conquered the four open back steps on the deck. I like to follow the resident hounds around and take frequent naps in my crate.

I've also been to see the nice people at Grassmere Animal Hospital for x-rays of my broken leg and also the bump on my other leg. They took a little chunk of the bump and sent it off to be looked at. Guess we'll find out next week what that's about.

Home Sweet Home

Don't I look natural? Here I am — a B&W dog sacked out on a B&W bed. Being a sweet boy is easy for me and it's turned out to be a full-time job I'm good at. My other job right now is gaining weight. I've got 19 lbs to put on and I'm loving every minute of it. Okay, so it's not the same food as at the track, but the kibble's good, especially when they add yogurt. Amd there are bones to chew and peanut butter in my Kong and bedtime snacks like a heaping helping of pumpkin. What a life!
