John’s Happy Tales Report
4/18/16 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The FoG Kennel.

The end of meet kennel crisis is about to arrive, sound the alarm and alert the people, we will soon have an overflow of adoptable hounds, WE NEED YOUR HELP, we have more hounds than room at the kennel, and as stated in Michelle’s Blog, if you have been thinking about adopting, adding a second or even third four-legged member to your family, now is the time to go into action. It’s the end of the racing meet, some dogs will be moving on to other race tracks, but there will be many that will be retired. We will have hounds available for adoption, fostering, and free home trials. Check out Michelle’s blog for all the details. I won’t repeat the whole thing here, but I wanted to reemphasize the important items, and in a nutshell, if you have been thinking about adding a or another hound to your home, this is the perfect time to act. It’s a sign, as they said in ‘Sleepless in Seattle’. Four replies have already come in, and you can check Michelle’s post for all the doggie details.

Briefly, on the kennel front Denim is currently in a free home trial. Her potential forever home is in Miami Springs with former FoG alumni Tough Task. If this is ever read by Patrick and Nubia, if you are interested, we have taken my Diffy to the dog park next to the high school without any major problems and when he’s had a chance to run with other greyhounds, he has a greyt time, so if you have the notion, send me an email through the website and maybe we can get them all to run together sometime. No matter where you live in the Springs, the dog park is close. We also have two brand new special needs arrivals, Darla, who is extremely shy, and Chris, who tore some ligaments, are looking for forever homes.

Over the years, the administration has lost track of many of our adopters, as a result, the mailing list has not kept up with everyone that has adopted with us. This becomes painfully obvious at times like this when we want to get the word out to everyone we possibly can. We use MailChimp, and if you can sign up for it, it would be very good for all parties involved, especially the greys. As with everything, you can contact Michelle or Jerry or the website and get all the information you need. Michelle also has one photo left that was taken and not picked up at the Horses and Hounds, if that’s you, you can contact her and she will be glad to send it to you. Our webmaster will hopefully post a picture of it in this blog.

Ok, that about covers it, don’t forget the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival is this coming weekend, we’ll be there and as always, we’re looking for volunteers. We still have the Whole Foods Promotion, with the store in Coral Springs, if you bring your own bags they will donate ten cents to us, and it does build up a pretty nice amount after a while. April is Adopt a Greyhound Month and we will have a surplus of hounds that deserve a nice forever home, and who better than great humans like you to help them out?
