John’s Happy Tales Report
2/23/16 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The FoG Kennel.

Back again, a day late but not a dollar short. Compared to last weekend, it’s been a very quiet week. We now have eight dogs in the kennel for adoption including two returns, as usual due to family concerns more than the dog’s fault. Last week Asia and Charlie went directly to their new homes from Pet Supermarket, and as of the moment both are doing very well with their new humans. We will be out at the Pet Supermarket on E. Sunrise Blvd. again this Saturday from ten until two o’clock, but without the hotdogs this time. Also on the horizon coming soon in the next couple months, the Horses and Hounds event and the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival.

Michelle says we need to hold a giant yard sale to clean out a bunch of stuff that has accumulated since the kennel was closed. If anyone has any ideas for a great heavily trafficked location or even better, a commercial spot on a main street, please email her. We will be looking for volunteers for this and of course, we can always use any and all help around the kennel, so if you have some free time you’d like to donate to help out with the adoptables, or any teens that need service hours, feel free to contact Jerry or Michelle.

Where’s One Eye, no that’s not a question, that’s a dog named Uno, who was surrendered to us because his family could no longer care for him. He is ten years old, but apparently his humans are older, his human mom passed away and his human dad is no longer able to care for him, so he needs a loving home to finish out his career. Uno is well behaved, in good health, so you will not be getting someone else’s problem; he’s just a victim of unfortunate circumstances. Steve is another return, he was living happily in his home but again, circumstances forced his family to inherit more members of the household, among them, four children. The combination of too many people, four of them children apparently caused him to snap at one of the kids, so naturally the dog has to go. We have six others available at the moment and you can check them out on our website and if you are more than just interested, you can contact Michelle or Jerry and get all the information on them and perhaps even arrange to meet them at the kennel or even at your house, at your convenience.

That’s my story for this week, please do check out the profiles, or come see them in person, or arrange for them to come meet you in your residence. We will be at the Pet Supermarket again this Saturday, if you’re in the area stop by and say hello. We will have one or two of the inmates with us so if you’ve never met a real live racing greyhound up close and personal, here’s your chance. Have a greyt week, give your hounds a hug from us and thank you for all the support you’ve given us over the years.
