I turn 3 years old today! Wow, a lot has happened to me in those 3 short years. I went from racing dog to being injured to beloved family member all in such a brief time.
Saturday was a good day. Daddy had to teach skating, so mom and I went to the pet store near my house for a meet and greet for Greyhound Friends. Everyone who worked at the pet store recognized me because I won the Halloween contest. Mom and I were the first ones there, so we set up the table and chairs. A nice man gave mom a $20 donation!! That was so wonderful! A short time later, Troy and his mom came and then another lady came with her foster dog, Bandit. Mom knew Bandit from the kennel. He is 9 years old and has been at Greyhound Friends for 3 years. He is now in a foster home and doing well. Another lady came with her greyhound, Monica and another foster dog named Jet. We had a lot of people stop by to see us. We were there for about an hour and then daddy joined us. I was happy to see him. We collected a total of $56 for the shelter! I love helping my brothers and sisters. After the meet and greet we went back home for a few minutes. Daddy wanted to drop off one of the cars at the house. I also needed to take a bathroom break. It was back into the car after that. Daddy drove us to Dirty Hairy's Dog Wash. I got a bath so I would be all nice and clean for my Birthday. Mom chose peppermint shampoo and I also got oatmeal conditioner. I was still shaking a bit, but I felt SO good after my bath. My coat is all bright and shiny. We left the dog wash and daddy drove to Walmart to pick up my antibiotics. I have to take them for 28 days. I really do feel fine, but mom says I have "Bugs" inside of me that need to leave. It's OK because I get a cookie after I take my medicine.
Mom and dad were very busy on Sunday. They were cleaning the whole house and cooking lots of food. Mom and dad ran to the store and came back with 4 huge balloons. They were blue, green, yellow and a darker blue that mom calls purple. Mom made a little sign to put out on the lawn and tied 2 ballons to it. The other 2 went on the railing of our front door. A short time later a car came and parked in out driveway. I couldn't believe it! It was my friends Johnny B. and Sonia and their mom and dad. Next Bella came with my pet sitter Sarah. Sarah took care of me while mom and dad were on vacation. Then the best surprise of all! My boyfriend, Gill came! He is a big handsome brindle boy!! Sorry girls, he's taken! Then Kiera came with her dad Mark!! They brought me toys and sang Happy Birthday to me. Then we dogs got a special dog cake! The humans had one for themselves that had chocolate in it. Mom said dogs can't have chocolate. That was fine, I enjoyed my cake. I got to hang out with my friends all afternoon and into the evening. Everyone had a great time. This was my first birthday party. Gill turns 4 next month. I hope he has a party too. What a wonderful day it was!!!
Today is Monday, and it is the actual day I was born. I was the second puppy born in my litter. I don't know where my litter mates are. Some may still be out there racing. I hope they all get good homes and birthday partys like I did. We never got anything like that at the track. I wish them a Happy Bithday too.
