We went to the pet store near my home today. I thought we were just doing our usual weekly shopping, but I was wrong. When we got there we met another greyhound named Johnny B and his mom. I knew Johnny B from my Greyhound Adventures group. My mom held Johnny B's leash while his mom went back to the car to get some things. Next thing I knew, I was partcipating in a Meet and Greet. We had a table, posters and everything. The Meet and Greet was for Greyhound Friends where mom and dad volunteer. A few minutes later, my friend Troy and his mom showed up and joined us. We were there for 2 hours and met some nice people. We even got some donations. Dad had brought my blanket so I would have a soft place to lie down. I liked Johnny B's bed better and Johnny B liked my blanket, so we switched!! When Troy joined us, we just shared and laid down together. My blanket is pretty big. My parents and Troy's mom arranged a play date for me after the Meet and Greet. They have a fenced in yard. The yard wasn't very big, but Troy and I had fun playing. We got along great! I had fun. The best part is that Troy is practically my neighbor. He lives just down the street. When we got home, mom and dad were hungry so they went out to get food. After they ate, they got me back in the car. This time we went to the usual pet store. We bought food and I got a new raw hide bone! My brother, Ben's birthday was last Sunday and the pet store had sent a coupon for a free birthday gift. Ben got a new mouse! I also got the best cookie ever!!! What a yummy cookie!! I kind of made a mess of mommy's car but she didn't care. When we got home, daddy brought the food into the house and mom stayed outside with me. Daddy joined us and we went for a nice walk. Mom and dad had noticed a fenced in area near the school. No one was ever there. Come to find out, it was a skate board park. It was empty, so we went inside. I got to run around with daddy. Daddy isn't very fast, but I still had fun. After our jog, we finished up our walk. When we got home, I got my new raw hide bone. It was a nice day!
