Hello everyone, I have not checked in on this blog for a while and wanted to do so today because this is the day I will be the featured dog for The 12 Strays of Christmas on Facebook an’ Instagram, and I’ve got a new video for you to view.
I have a special request for Christmas. I am ready to retire as The Narrator of the HSGKC Dog Blog. As you may remember from my previous posts, I have an arthritis condition called “spondylosis” and I’ve been getting acupuncture for it. Well, our humans recently found out that I also have ruptured discs in my back. They continue to take me to Aid Animal Hospital for the canine pin cushion sessions, they refer to it as acupuncture, which is helping. All of the humans who care for me (Dr. Hamilton here at HSGKC, Dr. Rowe at Aid Animal Hospital, Pete, Kate, Christine, Jai, Joyce… and all of our wonderful volunteers and other staff members) think a home would be the best place for me, and I agree completely. Although they have put rubber mats down for me in my dog run for better traction, and give me my meds, and are doing everything they can to make me more comfortable, they all would love to see me enjoying home life. I’d like that, too, and I would love to make them all happy because they are wonderful humans who love me and all the dogs here a lot.
This home would not need to be a permanent home, it could be a foster home. I would really enjoy a somewhat quiet home with a several soft dog beds, carpet or rugs to lay on. I am very affectionate and I adore spending time with humans. My tail is always wagging. I am well behaved and although I do have a “space bubble” I prefer other animals such as dogs and cats respect, I have walked with almost all of the other dogs here on Pack Walks when I was walking better. I would be a very loyal, loving, snuggly, and fun companion. I am very easy to walk on a leash, and would enjoy short walks (when my activity restriction is lifted). I do know that my health needs may seem like a lot to take on, which is why I also am very open to a foster home.
I hope you check out my new video, and enjoy the pictures of me being dressed up (I tolerated the adornment because I knew it made Jana and Christine happy, but sometimes you humans are very funny creatures). If you are interested in learning more about me, how to foster me, or want to meet me, please contact Christine. I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season. I hope the next time I check in on this blog is when I am in a home.
