John’s Happy Tales Report
10/5/15 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The Fog Kennel.

The Quiet Waters pool party has come and gone. I can’t believe that there are no postings on the website from Saturday afternoon. I also can’t believe that I can pick a weekend to be incapacitated, which used to only happen when I worked all week then was sick all weekend. My report is all second hand since I was on my can at home, but I heard it was a lot of fun for the hounds. There was also an animal fare with a bunch of other groups, our booth was in the middle between two other groups and it was crowded and loud. The greyhound party went off as scheduled and we had a lot of old friends there, both two and four legged and I heard of no casualties or injuries. The running area was apparently more restricted so the hounds had most of their fun running through the water, but it all went well and we’re sure a lot of hounds slept very well Saturday night and even some for the next couple days.

Three new dogs have arrived. One of them is Charlie, we already have a Charlie so there was a question if he was going to be Charles Too, Charles Also, I was going to suggest Charles Lee after my personal mutt, but the problem was solved before it became a problem. One of our Foster People had her charge adopted out and her other greyhound Zen, was depressed about it, so she adopted the new Charlie. Problem solved, new Charlie has a new home, can be Charlie or whatever she wants to call him, Zen has a new brother who won’t ever be leaving him all alone. They also have a kitten that she rescued from a house (she’s a firefighter) and the kitten has already adopted Charlie as her own personal greyhound. Sounds like my kind of story with my kind of ending. Two of our more recent arrival girls have also been adopted; Lexi went to Plantation to live with a young couple and is reported to be very much into Halloween the last we heard. Lady was also adopted out to a new forever home. Max is currently in waiting, he was checked out at the park by a family who is going on vacation for a couple weeks and when they return they want to investigate further with the intention of adopting, so we’ll keep our fingers, toes, and eyes crossed for him. Kitty and Mandy are the other new arrivals; both are two year old girls, one black and one red. One of our veteran owners is already looking at them, so things are moving in the kennel. We are currently sitting with ten dogs, four girls, three two year olds and our eight year old Poochie, who is a gorgeous return and would be a beautiful addition to any home. She’s already been in a home, knows all the rules, and is ready to go. We also have four guys, aged from three to six years old and one, possibly two of them are in the workings for a possible adoption already. We also have two living in foster homes; one is a senior, ten years old and the other a little two year old guy that’s very very shy, but also very very lovable. If you’d like more information on any of them, just contact Michelle or Jerry, via email or phone and they will be glad to tell you all about them. We also deliver, almost like the pizza we’re getting tonight, but not quite. If you are interested in one or two of our greys, it’s highly likely that we can arrange an appointment at your convenience and bring them to your house to meet you in person up close and personal like.

Saturdays, October 10th and 24th will be meet and greet days at the Pet Supermarket on E. Sunrise Blvd. from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M., come on out and say hello, the store and staff are super nice and we usually end up with some goodies for the hounds thanks to donations. Next month, November 7th, at War Memorial Auditorium, there will be a Pet Expo. This one was the one held at the port last year, but due to horrific traffic and parking it has been moved to the Auditorium, which is a great location. It’s a little more commercial than the one just held a little while ago, but it should still be fun and we will be there with a booth, so come to the event, or come volunteer and work the booth with us, either way it should be a good time. Ok, that’s most of it for the moment, things are quiet, but also some movement of dogs, which is the bottom line. I did not get a report on the puppy this week, last I heard she was doing ok and working on getting better. Have a greyt week, thanks for supporting the FOG and we’ll see what goes this week.

Ok, as a rule we don’t do last minute add ons. As a habit, yes, as a rule , no. This just in, and it’s always worth it when it’s an adoption. Semi verbatim, Bill Wurdack, a long time greyhound adopter of ours adopted our girl Poochie. He has always had two greys and lost one just a few days ago. Poochie has taken up the slack. Bill is 89 years old and his living room is a shrine to the dogs he has loved-complete with a Christmas tree decorated with their collars. He just lost a dog named Poochina, so Poochie was a natural choice to step into her dog bed. She will be cherished, you can be sure of that. So this girl has hit the jackpot, greyhound style. Another example of greyhound people, they are definitely a little different and a lot special. Love to end with nice stories.
