John’s Happy Tails Report
8/26/13 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The Kennel And From Colorado To Homestead.

In keeping with our Happy Tales theme, I’m very happy to report that Atascocita Otto, who disappeared from his home early this morning down in the Homestead area, has been found and reunited with his family. I have no details other than that, so I don’t know if he escaped, was abducted, or just went up to the local bar for a beer, but the bottom line is that he’s back where he belongs and that will qualify him to be mentioned in the blog. More future happiness, next weekend is the Labor Day excuse for a food party. Hot dogs, hamburgers, derby pie, possible home- made chocolate chip cookies are almost a given as far as I know and plenty of other goodies along with the usual delightful pot luck that the alumni humans bring in. The house will still be open, so adoptions are available; it’s not all about the humans by any means. Lynne, the collar lady, will be there with her beautiful home-made and custom collars, she can even design football or baseball collars if your grey has a favorite team. She also brings her fabulous Georg’ja accent; it’s as much fun to listen to her talk as it is to watch her work. Dogs are moving out rapidly as we try to help the folks up north who are facing a greyhound pet shortage.

Tomorrow, a dozen dogs leave for their new lives, heading up the Emerald Coast, among them are the Superior brothers, Shaker and Shyster, and TMC’s Red Raider, a stunning white and fawn guy who didn’t even get a chance to completely unpack his suitcase. Dangerous Baby, our biggest girl, is also amongst the travelers. Dream World is still doing good in her new home with fast Eddie Risktaker, that looks to be permanent, and Pete Pow Wow Ski is waiting for his brother Jocco, to join him in his home. BMB Smoke has been delivered, and our two shy girls Harris Faulkner and Courtney Friel are set to be delivered in the next couple days. Several good looks over a busy weekend, but only Atascocita Drone was officially adopted and will be delivered on Friday. His new home has two humans from Colorado who moved here for a change. It’s very obvious that Drone’s new humans love him and he is very happy with them, and he will have an older greyhound and a beautiful little whippet for company. We wish the best of luck and health to Drone and his new family from all of us, may they have many years of mutual love and happiness.

No returns this past week, except for Otto, the lost dog, who was returned to his home. That’s my kind of week. We’re still working on getting the Gold Dust Twins, M’s Pretty Lori and Dynamic Macy a permanent home together, since they remain two peas in a pod, are inseparable, and really should go out as a matched set. We also have AM Ether, KL Fine as Wine, and TMC’s Lookahere, three sexy senior laldies who would make fine pets for someone looking for an older, more mature pet.

Astar Key Trip

Three new boys arrived last weekend. Astar Key Trip is a beautiful fawn three year old. Charlie Joiner just joined us, he’s a black guy, not quite two years old. He shows no professional races in his career, so If you’re looking for low mileage, check him out. Jerry Burns just arrived, we call him JB. He’s a black three year old guy, and he asked me not to talk about his racing record, so I won’t. We also have two new girls, a Dakota dog named Lydia. Dakotas Candoo is a four year old brindle girl, and she was a good racer. We also have another little four year old lady, her name is Payable, but her kennel name is Mouse because she always scoots around like someone is chasing her with a broom.

Don’t forget, big party next weekend, both days, plenty of food and drink. Lynne, the collar lady will be here too. We have lots of beautiful dogs to choose from, and even a couple that aren’t quite as beautiful, but they’re working on it. Bring the alumni out too, it’s always great to hear how they’re doing and even better to see them in person. Our dogs are becoming more and more famous, we’ve even got people from Colorado coming here to adopt. Ok, ok, they are living here anyway, but they did really come from Colorado. Come out and learn about our beautiful animals, no obligation to adopt, but it’s very possible to fall in love with them, they are big, fast, and also noble and gentle. Michelle may say Love, Peace, and Greyhounds. I love peaches and greyhounds too.
