What a fun day I had today. Mom, dad and I went to Greyhound Rescue of New England's huge yard sale. All the money made went to help rescued greyhounds. The yard sale was held at my auntie Carla's house in her big barn. There were so many amazing things that they put some of the things outside too. I got to play in the big yard with my friend's Gill, Skylar, Izzy, Miya, Dash, Atlas and Dolly. We could go in and out of the house as we pleased. There was even a pool for us to play in. I had such a good time. Mom and dad helped at the yard sale and also bought some more things. The yard sale is going on tomorrow too, but mom said we are going to the Whisker Walk!!!

 

I Made Mom Laugh

I made mom laugh this morning. Daddy made her a new CD to ride her spin bike to. I was laying in the workout room on the floor. Mom started playing the first song to warm up and I really liked it! It is called something like "Best Day Of My Life". About a minute into the song I started to sing! Mom was laughing so hard she almost fell off the bike!! Mom was glad I only sang to that one song as she wouldn't have been able to do her ride. Mom rides really intensely and that is hard to do when you are laughing!

Petey has been coming again for Day care. His mom still lives far away but Petey's new pet sitter broke her leg and can't watch him any more. he will be with us for a few more weeks. He is nice and I like him. He likes to play with my cat brother, Ben. They chase each other around.

Mom says I have a big weekend coming up. I think I will get plenty of naps in this week to get ready.

We had a fun day today. It was Memorial day so mom and dad invited a few friends to our house for veggie hot dogs and veggie burgers. Caryn Amy and Jeffrey brought Thor, Ripley and Teddy over! We got to run and play in my yard and we all got some veggie dogs. Thor and I had a great run together. Thor had a muzzle because sometimes he doesn't like people reaching towards his face. He was fine with everyone though so his mom took off his muzzle. I saw it and decided that I wanted to bring it to my bed, so I did. For some reason I like muzzles. I took Johnny B and Cella's muzzle too when we visited their house. Anyway one minute I was laying in my bed next to the muzzle and the next minute I decided that it looked rather tasty! I ended up eating the strap that goes around the head! Mom isn't too worried as it was mostly a cloth like material. I did eat some plastic though. I ate a good dinner, kept everything down OK so mom thinks it will pass through me just fine. She will keep an eye on me and my poop over the next couple of days. Mom and dad feel bad because I ruined Thor's muzzle. Mom offered to buy a new one to replace the one I ate. Mom says I should just eat real food from now on.

 

Busted!

This morning I thought it would be fun to get back at mom and dad for giving me a bath yesterday. When she let me out into the yard this morning I did a little excavating. Daddy had filled up the hole I had dug last night. I carefully re-dug my hole. I tried to look very sweet and innocent when I came back to the door but mom took a quick look down at my feet and saw......muddy paws! She went back to the sink and came back with wet and dry paper towels. She came out onto the deck and washed my legs and all four paws! Busted! Oh well. I still had fun digging and daddy doesn't know it yet be has the hole to refill!!

 

Surprise!!!!

Today mom and Dad took me to Petco so I could spend my gift card that won at Greyhound Friends in the costume contest. I was so happy to see that my canned dog food had some new flavors. Mom bought me two of each kind. I also bought some treats for myself. I like going to Petco as there are always other dogs there to meet. We got back into the car and I thought we would be going home. I thought everything was great until daddy turned the car into Dirty Hairy's Dog Wash! OH NO! I was getting a BATH! Sure enough, they took me inside. Mom and dad had the crazy idea that I was willingly going to walk up the stairs and get in the tub. No way! I just put on the breaks and stood there. Daddy had to pick me up and lift me into the tub. Once I was in there, I was OK. Mom and dad put on their aprons and gave me a shampoo and conditioner. I didn't mind the warm water and I was good about not shaking and getting them wet. They dried me off with towels which felt nice. Daddy had to lift me out of the tub too. I didn't want any part of those steps. Once out of the tub I did a good shake. A man that worked there trimmed my nails and then, the best part, I got a new bandanna. This one has minions on it. It is really cute! Now I smell funny but mom thinks I smell good. She said I was getting stinky. I totally disagree but you have to please the humans. My coat is all nice and shiny though and it felt good to get rid of some of the dead winter hair. On our way home we stopped at the other pet store near our house to get cat food for Ben and Charlie. Petco doesn't carry that brand. Since Ben is allergic to chicken mom has to buy several different brands of cat food. Mom and dad bought me a cookie. That was good. I guess it was a good day after all.

What a fun day I had today! Mom, dad and I went to Greyhound Friend's Spring Open House! It was a beautiful day!! We worked at the Silent Auction and Raffle booth again. Mom and dad set me up in my exercise pen and put my blanket over it to make some shade. Believe it or not, the neighbors white rabbit came to the open house. He kept his distance but he was really taking a chance on his life! Things got even better when daddy bought me a hot dog! That was so yummy! A lot of my friends where there. I saw my half brothers Fast and Padfoot and my friends Thor, Teddy and Ripley and many others. New England Patriots Michael Hoomanawanui and Joe Vellano came to sign autographs and take pictures. One of daddy's co-workers is a huge fan. He couldn't come so he asked daddy to get autographs for him. Daddy did. Mom took pictures of daddy with the Patriots! The Patriots even judged the dog show! Mom tried to get me to sing in the Best Trick competition. Only mom ended up singing! BOL!!! I just stood there and made mom look very silly!! Mom won 4th place!!! She gave me the milk bone but she told me that the ribbon was hers!!! When we were leaving the ring we saw a dog that just looked just like me. Our mom's decided to enter the Find Your Twin contest. We did and we won!!! I got a nice blue ribbon and a cool toy. While Longest Tail was going on, mom dressed me for the costume contest. I was a girl leprechaun! She bought most of the costume in Gettysburg and added my pink wig and orange shirt. The New England Patriots where taking pictures of ME!!!! I am not joking!! They had their phones out and both of them took MY picture! WOW!! I won first place!! I got a huge rosette, another cool toy and a $25 gift certificate to Petco. I am not sure what I want to buy yet. After the contest I went back to my pen and relaxed a bit. I did win mom a polo shirt in the raffle. Mom was happy. The polo shirt is white and it matches the ribbon she won!!! BOL!!

I had another exciting day today. Mom and dad took me to the Greyhound Adventures walk! It was held at Minute Man Park which is close to us. Johnny B and Cella where there. I had just seen them yesterday but I am always happy to see them. Stu, who was Brutus's dad came. Everyone gave him a big hug and gave their condolences. It was sad. He will adopt another greyhound one day but he needs to morn his loss. Guess what? I hung out with Mr. Spock!! He is a greyhound! BOL. It was such a beautiful day. We took frequent rest stops to get water. Mom brought me water in a special bottle that I can also drink out of. On our way back to the car mom and dad started talking to a couple who had a dog that looked a lot like me. They were talking about our racing careers and greyhound data. Mom asked who the dogs father was and they said "Flying Penske"! I met another one of my half brothers. We walked together for a while. That was SO cool! I was tired but I sure did have a lot of fun!

 

Cella's Birthday Party!

I was naughty Thursday morning. Mom let me out into the yard to do my morning duty and I had a lot of fun. I came back with muddy paws- all 4 of them. I had a great time digging in the dirt. By the time mom realized it, I had tracked dirt all over the floor and got my bed filthy. Mom wasn't too happy. I had to get my paws washed. Then mom had to sweep the floor and my bed is now being washed. I feel bad for mom but it was such greyt fun! I plan to do it again real soon!!

Today we celebrated my friend, Cella's 9th birthday! She is my firend who recently lost her leg to osteosarcoma. Her party was at Petco Unleashed. The store set up a very nice little space for our party. SO many greyhounds came including my half brother, Fast and my friends, Robin and Riley and of course Cella's brother Johnny B. They had set up a nice little table with both human goodies and dog treats. We had cake and cookies. I had so much fun socializing and eating treats. I even went up to a little girl and let her pet me! I am usually afraid of human children but she was sitting down and very calm. I also loved all the attention and petting I got from everyone. Most of the time my leash was just free so I could walk around as I wanted. I don't go far from mom and dad. After the party we shopped in the store. Mom bought me a cute doggy hat and matching bandanna. I had such a good time!

 

A Happy Day and A Sad Day

I went to Paws In The Park yesterday! It is a local doggy fair. I knew where I was when daddy drove into the parking space. I was SO excited that I was jumping on the leash. I couldn't wait to get to the fair grounds.I went into a lot of the booths and saw a lot of my friends- both dog and human. My Half-brother, Fast, was there and so was auntie Carla. Mom and dad bought me a new bed! It is really soft and comfortable. I wish we could have stayed longer but it was very cold and windy out and at times it would start to sprinkle. We did stay over 2 hours though so that was enough. I had a lot of fun.

Today was not so good. I learned that my good friend, Brutus, went to the rainbow bridge today. He stayed with us for a few days last winter while his dad had to travel. The vets thought he had arthritis in his neck but it wasn't. It was a tumor. I am SO sad. I have known him for a long time. Before he found his dad, I played with him at Greyhound Friend's. They have a big fenced in yard and we ran together. He was a close and dear friend. I will miss him! Arrrrrooooooooo!!

 

My Trip To The Vets

Yesterday I went to the vets. Nothing wrong! Don't worry! It was just my annual exam. The vet said I was very healthy. Something interesting did happen though. Mom took me to talk to the pet communicator in Gettysburg. Mom wanted to know how my health was. I said I was feeling well but I did have 2 spots along my spine that were giving me a little problem. Nothing big or nothing to be concerned about- just feeling a little tight and achy. The pet communicator showed mom and dad where those spots were. Well, my vet is a chiropractor so she did a quick check on my spine. She said there were two areas that where a little tight along my spine! Guess what! They were the same exact spots that the pet communicator had showed mom and dad! The vet did an adjustment on my back! Yeah!!!!! Mom told the vet the story about what the pet communicator had said. The vet told us a story about a woman who brought her cat in. The woman said that the pet communicator told her the cat had a mass in her chest and wanted an x-ray done. The vet was kind of laughing about the whole thing but agreed to do the X-ray. When she looked at the X-ray- sure enough, the cat DID have a mass in her chest!

Later mom and dad went to the bank. Mom has a new bank now as she didn't like her old one. They allow dogs inside the bank! I went to the bank!
