So I have vacated my spot for the next foster grey. Whoever you are, you'll like this family!

Here's a little more about me. I am a big boy. If you check back to the July blog, you'll see that I have HUGE feet!! I love my people, I stay home all day and roam the house with my foster brothers and then at night they turn the heat down and it gets chilly. So, you know what I do then? I go upstairs and get into bed with my foster mom and if the other two dogs are there too, we all snuggle up together with mom. The only thing is that I don't really think mom likes all that cuddling. She hollers alot when we get in there. Maybe it's cause we lay on her and crowd her out of the bed. Or maybe she's just a party pooper.
So the typical things about greyhounds just aren't true with me. I don't gulp my food, I don't bother the cat (not to mention that since I've arrived he won't step foot out of the basement!!), and I think the birds are ok too. As for counter cruising, I ruined my reputation today by stealing the butter dish, butter and all. Once they took that from me, I went back to get the next stick of butter, wrapper and all. Well you know what happened then? They took it away!! AAAAAAAgh!!
Ok so I'm getting typing cramp. I need to go sip some more egg nog by the fire next to the tree so if you want the best Christmas present ever, Call Denise and tell them you want Patch! I will make a great stocking stuffer! (just get a REALLY big stocking)

I am just a 'wonder dog'! I have been so good I have ignored the birds in their cage and BOY are they loud! I think they're upset 'cause I'm here. Tough luck for them huh?! I have tried sooo hard to get someone to give me part of their dinner or breakfast but have been pushed away! Rejection! Uh! So anyway, I am now walking pretty good on a leash. My other foster sister has taken me on a walk and said that I stuck my head against her leg like a magnet. I guess it made it hard for her to walk?! Silly girl, I just really like people and want to stick to them! I did work my way into my foster sister's (the human that was on the first picture) bedroom and slept all through the night with no accidents or cries! I was a good boy from about 10 PM to 5:30 AM...what a champ! During the day, I'm in the crate with no hassles for about 7 hours. Track dog? I think not!!
Ok so my down falls....I think that the recycling bag is really fun to go through! A frozen pizza box makes a great toy! So does a slipper....wow have you ever thrown one of those things in the air!!! ok enough for now...time for the crate....

Ok so here goes...I think that I am just the perfect dog. I walk nicely on a leash, haven't had one accident yet...not even in my crate during the day! Wow! hard to believe that I just got off the track.
My family can't seem to find anything wrong with me...but looking at this picture, can you?
Call Denise if or email my foster mom @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to come visit.

Ok so I also like the high school. I went there last night in the car. The car is SOO cool. I like to sit with my face right next to the driver if possible. I guess truth be told I'd probably climb in the driver's lap if I could. Mom pushes me back. But I LOVE THE CAR (once someone gets me in!!). Pssst...I also have a secret. ... I love to throw stuffies and tennis balls in the air all alone. Once my peeps see me I stop. It's so embarrassing!
So here are my goals:
#1 - I will strive to walk better on a leash
#2 - I will strive to not madly chase after any small animal such as rabbits, squirrels, etc.
#3 - I will strive to not act like a nut and try to eat the cat - I know he's in the house but I can't get to him
#4 - I will strive to learn to wag my tail instead of just stalking people
Ok so enough for now. Gotta go lay in the sun.....yards are great!

Ok so today for the first time I wagged my tail at my foster sister. Ok she's a cute little girl and not a cute little dog, but I wagged it anyway! So here are some updates on my 'profile' ( I feel like I'm on Facebook!):
- I do stairs like a champ! up and down
- I am learning to walk well on a leash
- I sleep on my foster mom's bedroom floor on a bed- all through the night with no accidents!
- I stay in a crate during the day and for the first time today I didn't pee in it!!!
- I have NEVER pooped in the house!
- I am undergoing therapy for my cat issues
So it's quite an impressive list huh? I should also tell you that I've been called a stalker. I follow my peeps around. They pet me and kiss me. Maybe I'll wag my tail tomorrow too! Give them a real treat! As for the cat therapy, I don't know that I'll ever truly be safe around cats but my foster mom took me to the stable (boy those are BIG dogs!) and I saw two cats. I really wanted to eat them but I was on a leash! Oh well, as for the cat in my foster home, he lives in the basement. Probably good for him. I might not be able to contain myself and I might take a bite!!!!
Ok TTFN...I'll keep you up to date on the wagging!

Ok let me tell you how I came into the house. First of all I came to my foster home with my brother Willie. His foster mom came and picked him up. Then I promptly entered the house and jumped up and attacked the birdcage. Boy did I get into trouble. Since then I've left the birds alone. In fact when I pass the cage, I bow my head in shame. How's that for remorse?! Ok so I can go up the steps like lightning, going down...not so much. They are really scarey when they go down! I am a really shy boy and am trying to get used to the rules and the hugs and kisses. I like my foster mom and when I get the chance, I follow her. That's cause she feeds me! So another thing I'm working on is housebreaking...why anyone would want to break a hosue, I don't know. but i think it has to do with the big yellow puddle I left in the kitchen on the floor. And yes I got into trouble for that too. Did I mention the chicken on the counter?! Ok that's for another time. For now as you see I have worn myself out and need some sleep. TTFN.

As for me, I have been hogging all the attention the last couple of days. Wow it's been great. Anyway, tonight I went with my friend that came to visit me before I was adopted last time. I was so happy to see him. I figured he'd come back for me. We were meant to be a great team. He's great. I wagged my tail and greeted him. Then he took out the leash. Someone trained him well. I thought he'd forgotten about me. Guess what? I'm going to live at the State Capital....ok well not at the actual building but in Annapolis. I'll keep you posted on the politics I try to rearrange!!! Who needs Democrats and Republicans? Vote for Greyhounds!!!
