A little about us....

We are the Strongs and began our jouney with greyhounds about 4 1/2 years ago when we adopted our black and white male, Mustang. He is now our authority figure. Or at least he thinks so. If he could talk, he would just shake his head and ask what's wrong with these young kids today - in regard to the foster greyhounds.
Next came our former foster dog, Jack. He's about 2 years old and his name Jack fits.....Jack Be Nimble, Jack _ss, and Jack in the box. He is quite a character and wasn't adopted due to his growling at prospective parents. Not the best way to convince people that you are the dog of their dreams! Of course now that we've adopted him, that never happens. I think he had alterior motives, huh?!

Fluffy is forever home!

Ok, I'm outta here. Enough boys around this house. This nice lady and her two girls came to get me today. They drove about two hours to come and see me. Now they really know how important I am! Oh and they brought this short little guy and wow did his face taste good! I got in their van and you know what they had? A van full of treats for me...ok I guess it was just their chips but I was taught to share so they should too, huh?! Anyway, you should see the bed they got me! It's beautiful. I am definitely going to get the princess treatment that I deserve.

Anyway, I'm in my home now and will need to begin training this new family. Wish me luck!

Settling in with Fluffy

Ok, here I am in a home. There are two other greyhounds here but they are boys. Too bad for them! Girl Power! The other one with white just looks at me with disgust. I really don't know why. Don't all dogs try to empty the dishes from the dish drainer? The people here were also worried about me and the steps. Ha! no problem. I took them like a champ. And guess what? They have a BIG bed here. Wow did you know that three people AND three greyhounds can actually fit on the bed?! We watched a movie last night. I actually watched some of it but when the dogs in the movie barked I was outta there! No dog is gonna jump through the TV at me!

Anyway, I am quite a catch. I LOVE people. They are soooo cool. Some of my other skills are: pushing doors open- ha! can't keep me out you silly people! counter surfing (they keep hollering "no" at me...wonder what that means?!), ball playing, and my foster mom says I'm a good girl in the crate at night and during the day. I also wait in there patiently until my foster brothers get their food first. By the way, what happened to "ladies first?!" I have some teaching to do here!

Ok, I've attached some pictures with the right gender. GIRLS (ok one has the one of the other male greyhounds and a boy that lives here too)
If you're interested in seeing me please let me know. I'm quite the charmer.
