12/19/16 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The FoG Kennel.

We start this week with wishes for a very Merry Christmas to all of our adopters, adoptees, volunteers, helpers, and supporters, both current and former. It’s not quite right to be sitting here, less than a week from Christmas with mid-eighty degree temperatures and plenty of sunshine. None of the traditional or stereotype holiday season cold weather, snow, people hustling and bustling around getting all their last week shopping and chores done. Oh well, at least we don’t have to shovel the driveways or worry about black ice, so I guess it all evens out in the long run. At least some of our relatives and friends will be doing a white Christmas. Our old friends Dudley and Yuri seem to be enjoying a Pennsylvania winter.

We have some greyt happenings in the adoption news, and just in time for Christmas. We can start with Goldie. Most people don’t even know about Goldie, she was, as they say, or at least I used to say, gone before she got here. When she came in, she was on paper just what one family was looking for. She went for an in-home visit, love at first sight. She will be delivered on Christmas Day. I wish all the stories were like that. Her new family is an experienced greyhound family, knew what they wanted and got it. Jackson was delivered last Saturday to his new family. He’s been out and back, so we’re all rooting for this to be the ‘right’ one. He has a new mom, human brother, and kitten sibling to go with a nice small fenced in yard. We’ve also got our fingers and dew claws crossed for Darla. She has gone to a home with a five-year-old greyhound brother and a Jack Russell mix brother. She’s going to a nice fenced in yard with a run, family experienced with greyhounds and possessing a lot of patience, with a stay at home mom. Darla is a big scardy cat, very shy, but also a beautiful dog. We’ve had our share of scardy cat dogs and they’ve ended up as excellent pets. Ms. Liz comes to mind, she specialized in working (and adopting) the ‘chickens’ and they all turned out as beautiful pets. So, we want to wish all the new adoptees and their human families all the best, a long and healthy life together with plenty of love, just in time for this season of love and compassion, whether for fellow man, or fellow animal, we could all do with more love, both given and received.

Wow, we almost cleaned house completely, all we have left sitting with bags packed and ready to go at the moment to my knowledge (which is not the gospel) j, is Annie, Ralph, Billy and Bulldust. So, there’s still time to add a retired professional athlete to your family in time for the New Year, or even Christmas. Check with Michelle or Jerry for the up to the minute information on any of our dogs, and they are even available to visit you at your house, Goldie can tell you how that works out. You can contact us through email or phone. We are always expecting new arrivals, so even as I type, it’s possible that we have or will be getting new arrivals at any time. Ok, I’ve stretched this about as far as even I can. After the New Year we will be back at Pet Supermarket doing the meet and greet, the Horses and Hounds event is coming up in February, and after that probably the Pompano Sea Food Festival. Have a beautiful and safe Christmas. Thank you for helping, supporting, adopting, and whatever else you’ve done to let us into your lives, and for just being you. Merry Christmas from our family to yours.
