Glamour shots






I tried my paw at modeling over the weekend. I think I did pretty good, don't you?

Can we go outside?!


Life as a foster isn't ALL about relaxing. We go for walks twice a day to make sure I don't get toooo lazy. I like walking and looking at all the crazy things happening around us. My ears stay perked up most of the time we're outside because I'm so curious!

Got all my shots!


We went to the vet today to get some of those prickly things. I didn't like it much, and was kind of scared, but I was a Good Boy and didn't cry or try to run away.


Foster Mom gave me extra belly rubs when we got home to make me feel better. They're my favorite.



This is what me and Titus do while the humans work. I like lounging around and being next to them. I'm always curious about what they're doing so I like to follow them around. I have to be close by in case they decide to give me a treat!

Learning new things!


Porter's foster mom here! We have been working on some potty training since he arrived. Porter knows not to pee in the house, but the same couldn't be said for #2. BUT, with some patience and positive reinforcement (praise/calling him a Good Boy and lots of treats), we are making big progress! Porter has learned to wait by the door to tell me if he needs to potty, which is a HUGE step for him since he first got to our house. He will need lots of attention and reinforcement to continue this improvement, but he's a smart boy and I fully believe he'll get the hang of it. And I mean, just look at how cute he is. He's worth a little extra effort. :)

Day 2 in the new place


My foster mom has been taking lots of pictures of me. She said this one is her favorite because I have pretty eyes. :)

Last night there was a crazy thunderstorm, but it didn't bother me. I slept right through it. I don't really like going potty in the rain, though. Foster mom tried to get me to go a few times, but I'd rather just hold it than get wet!


I've been guarding the bedroom door while FM is in the bathroom. You just never know what might happen... but nothing can get past me!


Now I'm helping (aka watching) FM work. I can't wait to find my forever home so I can help them work, too!

Happy to be here!


First picture in my new foster home! My foster mom keeps telling me I'm handsome, so that makes me smile. I sniffed the whole house and it seems safe. I smell a cat somewhere, but I haven't seen her yet. Maybe we'll be friends one day.


I became fast friends with the resident hound, Titus. We like to beg for treats together. How can my foster mom possibly resist these faces?! (Spoiler alert: she can't)


It didn't take me long to figure out where I'm supposed to sit. Who needs furniture when you have your own comfy bed all to yourself?


...and then it didn't take much longer for me to be comfy enough to roach. Especially once I got my stuffed elephant to cuddle with. This is the life!

Lots of happy dogs at happy hour


In case you wanted to see my relative size, here I am pictured next to a 7lb 8 week old puppy. I usually think I’m the cutest in the room, but this teeny guy gave me a run for my money.


I was the most chill dog at happy hour. Everyone said they wished their dogs were as chill as me. There were tons of kids there too, so I just hung out next to my foster mom and let all the kids pet me. I did GREAT with their itty bitty toddler hands poking in my ears and around my face, I just let it happen. I even let one of them do the limbo under me - perks of being the tallest hound in the room.

Me and the resident cat


I’m generally very uninterested in the resident cat, we just coexist...I sniff her, she sniffs me, she jumps up high where I can’t reach her, she boops my nose, and then I go away and leave her alone. But today I thought I’d keep her company and she was totally cool with it. We napped like this all afternoon. This might be my new cozy spot (but I still like my bathroom the most).

Treats treats treats I love treats


The resident hound taught me quickly that the concierge in the building where we live is the place to be for good treats. The nice men behind the front desk really know how to make you feel like a prince. You guys should try city living sometime. Everyone here loves me and is so interested in my life as a racing dog. They’re always asking how fast I was in my prime. Clearly not fast enough!!! So I just tell them that being retired is soooo much better. Just kidding. I don’t tell them anything because I am a dog. I just stare at them deep into their eyes and run my face into their hands repeatedly asking to be pet. I love a good face rub.

My #1 Quirk - I love hanging out in the bathroom


I love this bathroom. It is my temple. If foster mom is showering, I am here. If she is not, I am also still here. I am always.right.here. Enjoying this bath mat but mostly just enjoying the cold tile. I think it’s because this tiny apartment bathroom reminds me of a giant safe crate, very cozy. Or maybe bathrooms are just my thing. Who knows. You can find out for yourself if you adopt me!!

Making friends left and right


I was a little shy when I first got to my foster home, but now I’m embracing all the pets and hugs and attention. The first day I arrived I protested going inside the local pet store...just too much going on in there beyond the front door (too many off leash dogs, lots of excited people, very crowded...blegghhh scary). I stood in the doorway and pulled and pulled on my Foster Mom to not make me go inside. So we left and I was totally fine. But today we went back to try again and I walked right in like a champ!! I let every one love on me, including all the other foreign dogs. I met a giant pit bull, two golden doodles, a Frenchie puppy, and a yellow lab. I was indifferent to them, but they enjoyed sniffing me and following me around.

Helping Foster Mom stay focused while she works from home today


Just kidding. She’s not focused at all. And I’m not helping at all. But look how majestic I look! You’d be distracted too!

All smiles to be in my new foster home!


I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite.
