John’s Happy Tales Report
10/16/17 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The FoG Kennel.


Our biggest news of the week, in a week filled with little news is that Jagger has found his forever home. Jagger has moved to the Ocala area with Mark, one of our veteran owners who had moved up there a few years ago. Mark had adopted Taylor and Facebook, but Taylor has recently passed away, so he was in search of an older mature boy, to make their house full again. Jagger is just who he was looking for, and after the preliminaries were taken care of, Jag went up and met Mark and Facebook, they all hit it off, and Mr. Jag has found himself in the care of an excellent greyhound lover and should be set for the rest of his life. This makes my week that much better, Jagger is eight years old and considered a senior, and a return senior no less, but he managed to hit the jackpot, which proves what we always say, there is a perfect home for every dog and a perfect dog for every home, it’s our job to put them together. In adoption news not quite so good, Mercury failed in his attempt for a forever home. He got along with the first dog he met, but a small dog at the home did not hit it off with him, or vice versa. This confirms the opinion that Mercury will have to go to a home that does not include cats or small dogs. That’s ok, there are plenty of those homes available too, all we have to do is find the right one. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Good luck to Mark, Jag, and Face, and wishing them many years of love, happiness, and good health. And thank you for taking these beautiful animals into your homes and hearts.


Next Sunday afternoon we will be guests of Laura Schenone and Books and Books of Coral Gables, which is just off Lejeune Road, just north of Coral Way, on Aragon Avenue, from 4-6 P.M. She is the author of “The Dogs of Avalon” Ms. Schenone is from New Jersey and has also written “The Lost Ravioli Recipes of Hoboken” and the James Beard Award winning book “A Thousand Years Over a Hot Stove”, all three books are non-fiction and actually all three look pretty interesting to me, but the “Dogs of Avalon” looks like a must read to me and anyone at all who is interested in our hounds. We will have a couple of our adoptables with us for the signing and dogs are allowed in the store in case you want to stop by and say hello. You can check out “The Dogs of Avalon” and Ms. Schenone on the internet, but better yet, stop in and chat for a while and check out our dogs and her books, an afternoon much better spent than watching the NFL on TV.

Ok, if I can get out of going to Orlando this weekend I will be there for sure, but try to stop by and bring your hound, as previously stated, they are welcome in the store for the event. That covers most of the excitement for this week, remember, you can check out our hounds by contacting Michelle or Jerry on the website, email, smoke signal, whatever, and they can answer any questions you have about our inmates, you can make an appointment to come visit them at the kennel and we can probably even bring them to your abode at your convenience if you live within a reasonable distance from our kennel in Sunrise. Have a greyt week, keep your hounds safe and cool, and don’t bite anyone.
