Brog’s Blog, part IV


Hey Guys! Brog reporting in here. My foster mom thought it would be a great time to provide an update with how great I am doing with my new retirement situation. I continue to be handsome with a touch of goofball. My favorite parts of retirement are the comfy beds and treats! I have yet to meet a treat I don’t like.


I have made new tiny friends in my foster home. Apparently, some of my retired racing friends have been known to chase kitty cats but not me! In spite of my large size, I am careful and sweet to my foster kitty sisters.


I made it to the meet and great Saturday. I was feeling extra festive in my Christmas neckerchief. I sure did enjoy seeing some hound friends and getting lots of attention from the humans!

Not to brag or anything, but I have figured out how to go up and down steps without help, I haven’t had an accident in the house in almost a week, and I haven’t tried to counter surf in more than a week! I’m learning how to be the most perfect companion and respectful home resident! And did I mention how good-looking I am? Seriously though, I think I’d do well in just about any home-I like humans of all ages, I don’t mind having other animals around but think I’d do ok as an only pet, too, as long as my humans were awesome and fun and kept me entertained, and I don’t mind spending some of my day in the crate! In fact, sometimes I just decide to hang out in my crate with the door open. If you’d like to meet me, just come see me at the next meet and greet, bring treats!

Brog’s Blog, part III


Well hey there again! It’s me Brog! I hope all you greyhound-loving people had a great Thanksgiving. I know I did! Let me tell you about my last few days. I helped my foster mom with her Thanksgiving cooking! I just laid down right in in floor so I could stay close and keep her good company. She said that she has never had a hound that didn’t mind lying right down on those hardwood floors before but I don’t get that! If you want to be where the people are, sometimes you’ve got to make some compromises.


Thanksgiving day was very exciting because my foster mom and dad hosted “Friendsgiving” at their house. Everyone that visited loved me (it must have been the Thanksgiving neckerchief) and I was sure to give out copious amounts of kisses. Once I figured out that turkey on the counter wasn’t for me (I only had to be directed 2, maybe 3 times) I was the perfect gentleman! I found my way to a nearby bed and hung out until after dinner. I was very quiet and well behaved. And I had a bed fail!


We also watched the dog show on TV. I cheered on the greyhound, but the little bulldog won instead. Oh well, maybe next year. My foster mom told me and my foster brother that we are the handsomist and could have won. But I was happy to watch from the comforts of my bed.


And then I took a nap.

Brog’s Blog, part II


Hey guys! Brog here! I’ve been in Nashville a week now, and am definitely settling in well! I’m really liking retirement! I moved to a new foster home this week and got comfy quickly! This is me an hour or so after getting to my new foster home. Check out my stems! They are so long!


I’m totally ok if you want to put a belly band on me when I first get to my new home. You see, I do like to mark, but only when I first get somewhere new. After the first day or so, it’s not a problem at all! I’ve only had one other accident in the house. Other than that, I’ve been a perfect gentleman.

Things that my foster mom says I am great at:

1. Being very handsome

2. Making her laugh-I’m a little goofy sometimes!

3. Sleeping allllllll night

4. Paying no attention to kitty cats at all!

Things she says I need to “practice”:

1. Getting better going down and up stairs-in that order, though she says I’m doing much better than when I first started learning.

2. Jumping in the car, jumping out is not problem!

3. Learning that even though the counter is a perfect height for me, the things on the counter are not for me!


On Saturday, foster mom put a fancy red neckerchief on me to make me even MORE handsome, and we loaded up and went to the meet and greet. Here I am with my foster brother Fox, and all my other friends. I loved all the attention!


And then I roached for the first time. What can I say? It was a great nap!

Brog Is Here!


Hey everybody! My name is Brog, and I just arrived in Nashville this past Saturday!

My racing name was Flying Brogdon. I'm a big, happy boy who loves retired life! I've met some tiny humans (foster Mom said they are 3 and 4-1/2, whatever that means) and I just loved them.


I love being outside. I'm very good with my foster sister ... we've had no growls or fights. I am very easy going.

Since I'm so tall, I am curious about what's on counters. My foster parents are teaching me to stay away. I do. Sometimes. But, I'm trying!
