John’s Happy Tales Report
3/2/15 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The Fog Kennel.

Ren-Fest is the big news this week with Horses and Hounds looming in the very near future. This past weekend FoG was again at the Ren-Fest to meet and greet all the nice people and introduce them to the wonderful world of greyhounds. There were no drunk mermaids last weekend, we had a little rain on Saturday and we did discover that Max, who was in attendance, is not afraid of cannon fire, so if you are looking for a hound that is impervious to loud noises, it looks like Max may be the answer. I think this is past the midway point and there are two more Ren-Fest weekends, and I hope to be able to get to one of the last two weekends, as that has always been my favorite meet and greet. If you get a chance to go, don’t forget to stop by our booth and say hello, we currently have five hounds available for adoption and there will probably be one of two of them on site to greet you. Also coming up at the end of March and already posted on the website is the annual Horses and Hounds events, you are again requested to RSVP and all the information is on the website, including the numbers to call to RSVP. Last year was my first one and it was tremendous, especially if you also like beautiful horses.

Benny

Benny

On the adoption front, we have Benny back in the fold, he had a beautiful home but his mom died and dad works long days. I don’t anticipate him being back too long, he is a beautiful dog, excellent house manners and a joy to be around, just a beautiful bundle of love waiting for a place to happen and it should happen pretty quick. Good news with Slash also, he was returned because he was cat aggressive. He went to one of our volunteers for foster and she became a foster failure, just as I did. He now lives with his little sister Rainey and a cat, and is now a permanent member of that household.

“I took Slash and Rainey to a friend’s house yesterday so she could meet him. She asked me if she could hold one of their leashes for me so I gave her Slash since Rainey is such a baby with other people. You should have seen him – his tail went between his legs and his head went down. It was like he was saying, ‘Not another new home.’ When we went to see my nephew and his wife later I made sure that I held his leash. Of course, by then he had been to Barkland running around like a nut with other dogs so he was much more relaxed and there was no tail between the legs.”

Kingsley

Kingsley

This is the report from Slash’s new human, Jill, it looks like he’s found himself a fabulous home. Profiling and cat testing are both so inexact; sometimes a dog will just make a complete liar out of you if he finds the right environment even if it goes against what we supposedly know about him. Kingsley is our newest addition, a non-racer, only a year and a half old, and check out his picture, he’s the cutest scared puppy I’ve seen in a long time. How’d you like to see that face waiting for you every day when you got home?

Ok, that’s most of it from around the kennel on this short week. Five great dogs full of love, looking for a home and someone to give unconditional love to for the rest of their lives, one of them might be just what you’ve been looking for. If you’ve never seen a greyhound up close and personal, check out Ren-Fest and visit our booth, greyhounds are gentle and also love kids for the most part. We also have a meet and greet every other weekend at the Pet Supermarket on East Sunrise Blvd., check our website for details on all of these events. Have a greyt week, and take care of your knees, they’re not a lot of fun to replace.
