Arrival Story:
We adopted Isis from the Seabrook Greyhound race track in Seabrook, NH. The adoption center is located right at the track and is called REGAP (Retired Greyhounds As Pets)

Bio:
Isis's racing name was Rosey Rosette. Her "call name" was Betty. The call name is what they actually call the dog so that when racing fans call and shout their racing name, it doesn't distract them from the race. Betty just didn't fit her and she didn't really respond to the name anyway. We changed her name to Isis after the Egyptian Goddess. The breed originated in Egypt and Greyhounds were worshiped. We thought the name suited her. Isis ran a total of 14 races all in Seabrook, NH. She ran the summer of 2008. Her best race was her first race where she placed 3rd. She never broke her maiden race. In October of 2008, Isis suffered from a fracture of her left hind foot coming around the second turn on the track. The track Vet put her into a splint. After her recovery she was put up for adoption. Her sire was a grand champ who was raced 36 times and had many 1st places. Isis is a calm, gentle dog who loves cats (much to the relief of our two cats, Ben and Charlie). She is welcome addition to our family.

A New Beginning


Gumba

Good news! Mom just heard from Pets and People foundation.They are the ones that are going to test me to become a therapy pet.They had some cancellations so I can get tested soon. The test will be July 20th and close to our house! Wish me luck!

This past weekend was a bit crazy. Our neighbors moved on July 5th and left their cat behind. He was so sad and crying all the time. He was clearly in distress. Mom thought that maybe his parents would return for him as they left food, water and his litter box outside. By the end of Sunday he was still there. Two people were cleaning the apartment. The woman came outside so daddy asked about the cat. His name was Gumba and his family couldn't take him. Gumba's mom had to move in with her parents and her father was allergic to cats. The woman said she was trying to find a home for him. Mom said she would help too. Mom posted it on Facebook and it went viral! Gumba became a Facebook celebrity overnight! He had 1,000 shares! Mom was getting so many calls, e-mails and messages that she couldn't think straight. She finally contacted a rescuer who came on Monday night to get Gumba. Mom was able to lure him into our house with a can of salmon cat food. Mom put me in the weight room because Gumba was a bit afraid of me. Gumba is now at a no-kill, no-cage shelter. They have received 5 adoption applications for him already! A woman called today and said her daughter wanted to adopt him. Mom told her to have her daughter fill out an application with the shelter and she said she would! A man knocked on our door today and wanted to give mom money for cat food to help Gumba! Mom thanked the man and suggested that he make a donation to the shelter. He said he would. I guess this sows the power of social media! Wow!

What a fun day today! Mom, dad and I went to visit My friends Thor, Teddy, Ripley and their mom and dad this afternoon. Riley and his dad were there too and I got to meet a new friend named Ginger. Ginger wasn't a greyhound but she was very nice. We got to play in the back yard. We had so much fun!! Teddy tried to get fresh with me but I let him know that I wasn't that kind of girl. I think he likes me a lot. I like him too, but only as a friend. Some other people came too that I didn't know. They were all very nice. I make friends easily. There was a little boy who came. I did very well with him. I wasn't afraid! Mom was very proud of me because I am usually afraid of children. I got to play in the swimming pools too. They had 2 of them! I only have 1 pool but I am an only dog so I guess I really only need one!! It was a beautiful day! I hope we can go back and visit again sometime.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July! It was very rainy here today. Mom and dad had hoped for good weather so all the guests could be out in the back yard. Daddy was going to grill and mom wanted to play croquet and lawn darts. Hurricane Arthur had other ideas. About 20 people came. We all had to stay indoors but everyone still had a good time. Later my friend, Rosco came with his mom. I was happy to have him here. It is nice when there is another dog around. I got lots and lots of attention. I also got veggie hot dogs for dinner. One even had a bun with it. I like bread a lot. Mom says once in a while it is OK. The neighbors just shot off some fireworks. I know that scares a lot of dogs. I don't like the noise, but I am not afraid of it either.

I am honored once again to be a daily diary pick. Thank you Dogster.
