John’s Happy Tales Report
7/18/16 Mostly Happy Tales From Inside And Around The FoG Kennel.

Cricket

There’s no room at the inn. The kennel is full and we have developed a waiting list, so we need a bunch of adopters, immediately, if not sooner. We have almost as much variety as we had when we used to carry four dozen dogs. We have all ages, sizes, colors, to choose from. A racing kennel has gone bankrupt and we are taking at least two of theirs, including a ten year old brood mom. Ten year old greyhounds are not on everyone’s want list, but they hold a special place in my heart. She’s paid her dues, hung around the kennel and even given back over the years, now she deserves a chance at a real home with a loving family. If you have a little room in your house and your heart, please give this lady a bit of true love and happiness to end her career with. Many adoption groups won’t take the old, injured, or sick animals, and anyone can find a home for a young beautiful dog, but they all equally deserve a loving home, especially the ones that are not picture perfect, so those of you out there, who are willing and able, please check out our new senior lady who will arrive soon. We also have a few on the injured reserve list who are getting fixed up. They will make fabulous pets also.

Our final black dog special, Denim, has found her forever home. She has been delivered and renamed Serena and will be living with mom, dad, and a teenage human sister. She’s off to a good start, her people run a Cuban family pizza restaurant and her Godparents are longtime greyhound owners Ileana and Carlos from Happy Paws Dog Sitting, so they are all in good hands. Denim has waited quite a while; I think she’s going to be rewarded for that patience with an excellent home. Best wishes for her and her humans for a long life of love, health, and happiness. Sometimes it takes a while, but the results are worth the wait.

Burt and Bambi are nearing the final stages of their medical work. Once they get healed from their broken legs, they will be ready for adoption. They will never race again, but will still make fabulous pets. Our Diffy had a broken leg, which ended his racing career. He can still motor faster than any other dogs at the park and most of the greyhounds he runs with. One of my non greyhounds could not catch Diffy or Joan, another grey he was running with, so he cut across and torpedoed Joan. Just because they had a career ending racing injury definitely does not prevent any of them from enjoying the rest of their lives, believe me on that. I have word that Bert and Bambi are both awesomely cute, so you might want to check them out. We also have two new dogs in, four years old that have just arrived, more on them next week I hope. Cricket is ready to go, she has her bag packed and sitting next to her kennel, Max and Andy are waiting and watching every day, so why not come in and check them out. We also have been known to arrange a house visit, if you are interested and live in the area, Michelle can usually be talked into bringing one or two out to see you at your residence and at your convenience. We also stand behind our adoptables, we’re there for support and will do whatever it takes to get the right dog in the right home. It’s not always a perfect fit the first time, but we always say that there’s a perfect home for every dog and a perfect dog for every home, it’s our job to make it happen.

We also have the Dog Days at Ft. Lauderdale Galleria coming up next month, fashion show and adoption event. Irondog is going to be featured, more on that coming up. Animal Fair Adoption in Tamarac is coming up, so next month is going to be busy. I’d better end this before next month too. So, stay tuned, more to come, plenty of beautiful greys available for adoption, please come check them out, call Michelle, she can set up an appointment at your convenience, or as I said, we can bring them to see you. Any questions you have about any of the dogs, feel free to contact Michelle or Jerry by phone, email, or through the website, they have all the answers to all your questions. Please make sure your animals are hydrated, it’s hot out, and these are the dog days of summer. Stay cool, have a greyt week, and thank you all for supporting us throughout the years, without you, it couldn’t happen, and it’s made a lifesaving difference for almost two thousand thrown away lives over the years. That should make you feel good about what you’re doing, I know it makes us better people.
