John’s Happy Tales Report
10/24/16 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The FoG Kennel.

We have three new dogs that have just arrived. Sunday, we picked up two smaller sized four year olds, I don’t have their names yet, so I’ll just call them Donnie and Marie, as they are brother and sister, but not sure if they sing and dance or not. Marie is red and Donnie is a dark brindle. Tabby is a beautiful little red girl that arrived the same evening. All three are calm and very affectionate. All three are scheduled for the trip to the vet and will be ready for adoption this coming week. We also have about nine others who have their bags already packed and are just waiting for the right human or human family to take them away and live happily ever after. We have anything from a young stud, to a senior girl and everything in between. Check out our website for a more complete description of each one. Our group has always taken all greyhounds, not just the pretty ones in perfect shape, they all deserve a second chance to live the life of a pampered pet, so you will find some special needs dogs here, some seniors, some broken, but they are all special in that they will be the perfect pet for the right person or family, all we have to do is connect them to the right home.

Jackson has just moved to a temporary foster home, so he’ll get some individual attention. He loves people and wants to be with them all the time. He will need a home that can give him a little extra attention. He is allergic to anesthesia and he has some toes missing on one of his front feet. There are people out there, and I am one of them, that the more issues or challenges a dog has, the more appealing it is to give him a good life. I know many people that have adopted so called ‘special needs’ dogs and they’ve turned out to be the best animals they’ve ever had. Our Miss Scarlet was supposed to be fostered by a family with another greyhound, but after one day, it was decided that she would be a permanent member of their family. Talk about foster failures, I wonder what the record time for foster failure is.

This Saturday, the 29th, from 9 A.M. until 2 P.M., at the kennel, aka, 2621 N.W. 105 Lane, Sunrise, we are holding a yard sale. Lots and lots of dog stuff, supplies, bowls, raised feeders, donated stuff, but not for greyhounds, with low, low prices, so drop by, send a friend or two. All proceeds go to Friends of Greyhounds and it will help in emptying out space in the storage. Many of our owners also have other dogs, so this is for everyone, not just the greyhounds and their people. On Saturday, November 12th, we will be in the Pet Expo section inside of the Everyday Green Expo at Quiet Waters Park, from 10 A.M. till 2 P.M. Stop by if you are in the area, we love company. Also, next month will be Friends of Greyhounds month at Auggie Doggie’s dog supply store at 1515 S.W. 1st Avenue, Ft. Lauderdale. They are next to the Car Museum with parking both in front and in back. They are a small walk through store, but EVERYTHING is US sourced, US manufactured foods and treats. It’s a neat place, we’ll be there off and on for the whole month, and I’ll have more on it next week, or you can check our website or call Michelle or Jerry for all the information on everything I talk about here.

The Halloween Party at Pet Supermarket was reported to be a howling success. Jill was not there, but Danny and Mike took great care of us, and we went home with a bunch of canned foods and even some dog treats. If you are ever in possession of an extra bag or box of dog treats, and want to get rid of them, look no further. We will be glad to take them off your hands. I think the treats are in the grey area. We must have food and medicine for the dogs, along with the essential supplies, however dog treats are not considered totally essential (except by the dogs) and we get them when we can afford them. The dogs do love their treats and they go a long way towards making up for the other creature comforts we can’t afford to give them, like individual showers, wi-fi, stereo and tv systems, state of the art gyms, things that even the common criminals in American prisons are provided with by the taxpayers. So, rice is nice, but if you ever have an extra treat or two lying around the house, think of our beautiful hounds with their sad liquid brown eyes, watching, waiting for the one thing in life they really enjoy, their evening treat. The preceding was a paid announcement from the current FoG inmate’s association and does not reflect the views of the FoG kennel. Well, actually it does, we love them to have treats also. Ok, enough of this, have a greyt week, and remember Halloween will be here, keep your hounds safe, there’s some scary things going on out there and the hounds don’t know that it’s not for real, so keep them close and leashed or inside.
