Arrival Story:
We had lost our Solaris - and life in our house was just not right. My son had been interested in Greyhounds for some time - so we visited the local Greyhound rescue. We met "Flashy Franky" - a two year old lady who raced 7 times. Our good luck - she was too slow and was retired early. We visited her two weeks in a row and she stole our hearts! We loved her - but not her name - so Phoenix (new beginning) she became.

Bio:
She came to "Greyhound Friends" from Florida. She was in the shelter for 3 weeks before she came to her forever home.

I just finished my second round of Advanced Beginner class at The Curious Canine. This round of classes was so much fun! There were three other dogs in my class - one of which was my buddy Bogart. Now I'm friends with Furgel and Jordan as well. Paula was great - she would teach the class for an hour and then let us play off lead for as long as we wanted. I went home very tired. I now know the following commands: sit, down, stand, sit/stay, down/stay, stand/stay, heel on and off leash, touch to a target, leave it, stay back, wait, come, out of sight stays, down/stay for my breakfast/dinner, and have even tried some agility. I'm going to take a few weeks off and hope in April to begin my CGC (Canine Good Citizen) training and then move on to Therapy Dog training. I get so excited when Mom pulls into the parking lot at the Curious Canine that I am just all a wiggle!

Last week we dressed up for Valentine's day and played doggy games such as "red paw/green paw", "musical chairs", and "Paula may I?". I won "Paula may I" twice :). I love training - and Mom puts steak in my bait bag - it doesn't get much better than that!!

Phoenix has successfully completed beginner obedience class and is moving into the advanced beginner class. She is able to: sit, down, stand, stay, come, down for her food, wait, leave it, heel, and touch. It took three weeks to teach sit - but now she is a pro! Way to go Phoenix!
