John’s Happy Tales Report
4/11/16 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The FoG Kennel.

First of all, thank you Jeri Caprio and Jane Bistline, founders of the Horses and Hounds Foundation, again for your efforts in making that weekend a complete success. Also, a big thank you to all of you that worked behind the scenes and helped out before, during, and after the event, we picked up a nice check of over seven thousand dollars plus the goodies that were donated. The weather turned out to be pretty nice and we also want to give a big thanks to all that attended and made the event the success that it was. We have a week to rest, sort of, then the following weekend we have the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival. We will be out there with our tent to meet and greet everyone and hopefully continue to spread the word about our beautiful hounds to those who don’t already know about them, so if you are in the area, look us up and stop by and say hello. The details are on the website, but it’s the entire weekend, so you’ll have your choice of days. We enjoy seeing you and the dogs always like to meet new people.

Construction work continues on the kennel, it is somewhat of a mess, but we are still showing dogs and still bringing them to see potential adopters, so we’re still working, just pardon the dust. The kennel has a brand new a/c unit, I heard that President Jerry installed it, but I don’t believe it, so I may have heard wrong. Just kidding, who says he sleeps all day now that he’s a retired couch potato. We’re still looking for someone or someone who knows someone that can re-stucco the outside wall. Jerry is good but he knows his limitations, just like Dirty Harry, so if you know someone who does that kind of work, please contact Michelle or Jerry at the kennel.

From the animal section, Denim had some serious lookers last week and is possibly in the process of being adopted, we also have a new boy, he is injured with some torn ligaments, so he is finished racing, but I have information that he is going to make a fabulous pet for someone. If you are interested, just ask for Gimpy and they will be glad to fill you in on him. Remember also, that if you already have a FoG dog and are looking for another, you can request a ‘free home trial’ and bring one to your house for a week or two to judge if they are going to get along with your current resident(s), no obligation, our only interest is that our dog and our dog’s adopted family all end up living happily ever after.

Ok, I think that covers most of the exciting information. You can check Pet Finder or our website and I’m assuming that it is up to date with our current adoptables listing. Don’t forget the Seafood Festival is coming up in two weekends, and as a nice parting note, I believe the state of Florida now has a law to make it legal to break a car window to free a dog which may be trapped in an overheated car. I guess it says something about our society if you need to have legislation for common sense, but it is what it is, if it saves a life, it’s worth it. Who knows, maybe they’ll even have it for humans one day. Have a greyt week, thanks again for being part of the greyhound community, and thanks again for all of you who made the Horses and Hounds a howling success.
