In the Yard

I love this thing where I get to go in and out whenever I want. All I have to do is stand by the back door and look hopeful and they open the door for me. Sometimes we play a game where I go out and turn around and come rightr back in. I think it's fun. The two-leggeds don't seem to share my enthusiasm for it.

This big gate is a source of never-ending fascination ever since right after a thunderstorm, there was all this racket on the other side. Lots of people and banging around and tree limbs moving. Now we have a lot more sun in the yard. I think they did this just for me.

Regal Hound

Aren't I handsome? This is my favorite bed. It allows me to get maximum down draft from the ceiling fan and to keep an eye on the two-leggeds who come in often to stare at the talking box. Also, I can see all the toys in the room from here.

Have i mentioned how much I like toys? I've yet to meet one I didn't like, but I particularly like balls (squeaky, size of a grapefruit) and also small toys (about half the size of my head) that make noise.

Life is good, though it would be better if I grew opposable thumbs.

On Duty

Always good to check the perimeter in the morning. You never know when there's been an overnight incursion of bunnies or moles. Nothing gets passed me, not even a toast crust on an end table, an errant piece of kibble on the floor or another dog getting petted on the QT. I like to watch.I'm a sighthound, remember?

Making New Friends

I had a great time at M&G last weekend. So much so, I hope to go back this week. It's a fun place to meet new people and hounds and someone is always passing out treats or squeaking a toy or wanting to pet a greyhound

I've been shopping for a permanent home there. So far, I've met all kinds of cool folks, but no one that has set my heart a flutter. I know you're out there. Come find me!

Toy Time

Have had a fabulous day moving toys from one place to another. I esp. like the ones that squeak, though the ones that bounce when I throw them in the air are cool. Also like the ones that try to get away from me, though I'm sure they're not alive...well, pretty sure.

So, I hear some hounds have had trouble with all these thunderstorms. Makes them hide or pace or pant. Not me. I snoozed right through all the wind and the rain and the lightning. I did wake up when I heard the other hounds chewing on treats that the two-leggeds passed out. Actually, I almost jumped up when I heard the packaging crackle but I was trying to be polite.

Man, this stuff smells so good. I hope they start putting this stuff on my food! Life at home is going well. I'm learning to do the steps and still solid on my housebreaking. Other people come around pretty often, so I'm getting to meet them. I LOVE new people! Linda Rogers came by today. She's doing a 401(Grey) foster dog sponsorship for me in honor of her hound, Turk, who died earlier this spring. I sure am grateful, but sorry about Turk heading to the Rainbow Bridge.

Making Friends

Made my M&G debut yesterday. BOW WOW WOW!

PetSmart is quite a place. Food, people, other dogs. Did I mention the food? I had a great time. Made lots of greyhound friends...so many hounds. It's hard to keep up. Lots of treats. The little dogs were everywhere and I had to keep reminding myself that they aren't squeaky toys! Probably a good idea to steer clear of them.

The best part is all the people I got to lean on. Check out my picture. I'm a champion leaner. I think it should be an Olympic sport and I'd always win the gold.

Hey everybody-

I’m Kip and I’m new in town. Got in just yesterday. I think I’m going to like this new life, especially lhaving the backyard And being able to go in and out whenever I want. So far, so good on the housebreaking thing, though I did pee on a pot of basil and boy did they yell at me!

I had a peaceful night in my crate and a good breakfast. So now, I’ve found one of these funny fuzzy things and I’m going to have a nap. Hopefully the rest of the day will go well.
