When mom won't let me explore every ditch, sewer grate, drainage pipe and hole in the ground with my needle nose. (Okay, so I did fall in one time.) I also did not like trying to potty in 3 feet of snow. By bottom got cold.

Favorite Toy:
Anything that squeaks, grunts, toots and is loud, Loud, LOUD!

Favorite Food:
If it fits in my mouth and it isn't going to eat me first, I like it!

Favorite Walk:
Between the food bowl and the couch.

Best Tricks:
Outsmarting mom. I'm also excellent at "Sit" and "Not Stay."

Arrival Story:
I met my mom on May 28, 2006. I'd met other people and she'd met other greyhounds, but it was love at first sight for us! She thought she wanted a petit, solid colored, male greyhound... I showed her how much fun a big, brindle girl is! Heeheehee!

I used to race on a racetrack with lots of other greyhounds in Arizona. I love to run, but I really just wanted to play with the other dogs instead. I tried and tried to go fast, but I always lost. When Colorado Greyhound Adoption got me, I was malnourished, 30 pounds underweight, and very, very sick from eating sand. I had to go to the hospital and get operated on. I had to take lots of pills and get poked with big needles. I was a very sad girl. My guardian angels were my foster moms. They cleaned up after me when I got sick. They didn't even get mad at me for making big, stinky messes all over their house and car when I had tummy problems. They showed me that life isn't such a sad, scary place. They introduced me to my heart mom and now I am happy in my forever home. I finally won!

Forums Motto:
You gonna eat that?

How I got my name:
Everybody want to know how I got my name so I gonna add this to my profile. My racing name was Just Az Carefree, and I went by Carefree. I didn't mind it, but when mom brought me to my forever home she explained that Carefree was a type of maxi pad. I was horrified! I did not want to be named after a maxi pad!!! So we took a vote and changed it to Coffee. It's kinda close so I didn't have trouble learning my new name, but it didn't sound like a feminine hygiene product. I like being Coffee much better.

Adventures in the Petco bathroom Vol III

Today was our monthly Colorado Greyhound Adoption Meet and Greet. We had a lot of errands to run first so despite mom’s best efforts to not have to use the bathroom, she definitely had to go once we got there. (I refer you to Adventures in the Petco Bathroom Vol 1 and Adventures in the Petco Bathroom Vol 2 for why she tries to avoid taking us into the bathroom.)

We got into the bathroom, which was luckily not occupied. We went into the big stall on the end.

Daytona bolted in first, and spotted something he had never noticed before.

A big, white bowl. Mama called it a “toilet.”

We are not allowed in the bathrooms at home, so this was an EXCITING NEW THING!

He peeked in the bowl and it had WATER! This was very convenient since we had been snarfing down treats for the last two hours and were very thirsty. And best of all, it had white tissue paper floating in there.

What FUN!

Daytona was about to lunge for the intriguing wet paper when mom caught him and (rudely) yanked him away.

Mama was totally disgusted and grossed out.

Then she pulled a lever and the coolest thing EVER happened!

The water SWIRLED! And the paper went around and around and around just daring us to catch it!

At this point we were both staring in rapt fascination into the magic swirling water bowl.

Sadly, mama didn’t let us even let us get close to the water. Something about “toxins” and “disgusting” and “germs.”

We had to get our water from a plain old stainless steel water bowl.

We are still very interested in this “toilet” and plan to investigate extensively.

After a nap.

Because it is tough to be loved, adored, petted and given treats for two whole hours and we are very tired.


A note from Coffee & Daytona's mama: Mid way through this disaster, someone came into the restroom. Apparently they heard me having a conversation in the stall and they promptly left. I can only assume that once again my dogs made me look like a complete crazyperson.


Adventures in Walking Part XVIII

Our mama has never been that handy at coordinating our two leashes. Daytona and I enjoy twisting them up just for fun to watch her try to work out the tangles.

And yesterday presented us with an opportunity to take our leash chaos to a whole new level!

Daytona and I had both done our business, and mom was holding a bright blue poop bag filled to the brim with the results.

Then mama’s nose itched.

We stopped walking as she carefully transferred the poop bag to the hand holding our leashes and gingerly reached up to scratch her nose.

That’s when we tag teamed her!

Daytona scurried off to mark a tree on the right side of the sidewalk and I took off to sniff a blade of grass growing in the concrete on the left side of the sidewalk. Leashes pulling everywhere!

Our leashes twisted a perfect loop around the poop bag, and we pulled in opposite directions and VOLCANO!!!!

LAVA-POO erupted all over mama’s fingers and hands and dripped down the length of the leash and onto the sidewalk.

We were so proud!

Mama about fainted in disgust as she attempted to clean up the mess with additional poop bags. (Unsuccessfully, I might add. Heeheehee!)

We walked a very speedy and very stinky beeline back home where mama cleaned her clothes, cleaned her hands and took a shower just for good measure.

I don’t think she has recovered yet.

We might never get another walk again ever, but it was worth it!

Last night, Daytona stuck his nose in our mama's chili and SNEEZED.

Chili went everywhere, and we weren't even allowed a single slurp. Something about it had lots of onions in it, whatever those are. Mama threw all the delicious smelling chili in the trash can with the greyhound-proof lid.

I'm mad at Daytona for sneezing. I'm mad at mama for not giving me any chili. I'm mad at the trash can for being needlenose proof. I'm mad that I almost got blown away by the wind last night. I'm mad that I had to do my business in a blizzard this morning.

It is so very difficult to be a diva these days.
