Sleeping. And eating. Wait, no, sleeping. And I like when mom leaves, because I get a tasty kong, and I get to sleep. Did I mention that I enjoy sleeping? And I LOVE it when I get to run! And playing with my duck.

I hate it when a foster sleeps on my bed. Then I have to stand and whine until the foster moves. Or until I get tired and have to find somewhere else to sleep. It's tiring being a greyhound.

Favorite Toy:
Stuffed Duck (he's in one of the pictures)

Favorite Food:
I love chicken. Raw, tasty, chicken.

Favorite Walk:
I like to go hiking in the woods.

Best Tricks:
Tricks? Check back later - mom had said something about "clicker training" - whatever that is. I hope it involves food.

Arrival Story:
I was up in New Hampshire, racing at a track up there (my registered racing name is C's Chico Bob) but I wasn't very good, so when I was about 2 1/2, I was retired. I got on a truck and after about 12 hours, I was in Maryland. I lived in my foster home for about a week, then my mom met me and took me home. I live with a cat (which is strange - she's bossy) but I love my mom. She calls me a mama's boy - I don't know what that means, but it must be good - cause I get chicken for dinner. yummy. I like being retired. I get to sleep.

I'm nervous around small dogs, but mom says we're "working on it" - i hope that means more treats....

Forums Motto:
I'd rather be sleeping

On Sunday I got in the car (with Vision, remember her? she lived with us around Christmas and then she found a home). We drove for about an hour, then I got out and there were other greyhounds (including Goldie!). Mom put my muzzle on me and then i got to RUN!!!!!

A quick update on things at my house - Goldie got adopted about a month or so ago. There's a new dog, Tangier, here now. He's been here about three weeks. He's mellow, I like him (he didn't run with us).

Check out the picture of me running (all four feet off the ground!). It's true - I don't JUST sleep.

it sounds like a bad movie, right? Well, it's a really cool preserved area south of Boston. It's on the harbor, so has some nice views of the water. Anyway, this morning we got up and all three of us (Addie is here for a week and, of course, Goldie is still here - the foster) and mom went to World's End. We met up with all these other greyhounds and went on a walk. it was SO fun.

Now i'm back home...yawn...gotta go flop on my bed and nap now. hope your Sunday is as full of fun and relaxation!

I was just surfing through my friends' pages a bit. Vision has a beautiful new black and white picture on her site. Have you seen it? If not, check it out. Vision used to live at my house and I really liked her. We were buddies. I'm so glad she's happy in her new home.

Now there's a new dog living with us. Her name is Goldendale (Goldie) and she's funny. She's got a lot of energy and lots of personality. Mom says she broke her leg and that's why she's living with us. It must have happened a long time ago, as she seems to get around just fine.

Ok, time to go snuggle into my bed for the night. I hope you and yours are warm and happy tonight.
