Farley: Meet Me at Art Unleashed!

farley_ball2

Heya humans!  How ya doin’?  I’m doin’ pretty good myself and I’m very excited ’cause I just found out I getta go to Art Unleashed on Saturday, August 22!!!  So, ’cause I’ve been listenin’ to our humans talkin’, I know this is like a BIG fundraiser for HSGKC with all kinds of stuff called “art work” to bid on in a silent auction (I dunno how ya can bid on sAU_LOGO2015whiteBG-01omethin’ if you’re silent, but that’s complicated human stuff I don’t worry ’bout too much), and there’s a live auction for super cool stuff too (like extra special pieces of art work, an’ some other cool stuff).  You can still buy tickets if you want… and all the proceeds are for HSGKC! It’s their second biggest fundraiser, and I know it costs lots of money to help all of us dogs and cats here, so Art Unleashed is real important for our humans to keep doin’ what they’re doin’!  I’m goin’ with Ethan & Etta and Roxy.  I’ve got a good feeling this is FINALLY “my event”… meanin’ some great humans are gonna fall in love with me as soon as they see me and wanna make me a member of their family!

I went to Tails on the Trails last Saturday at Ad Astra Park in Lenexa, and 2 other dogs who went with me got adopted!  Bowie went home Monday (I gotta admit, it was real cute watchin’ him crawl on his belly real gentle like to his 2 new doggy brothers who are lil dudes… and I gotta say Bowie’s braver than I am with small dogs… the first one I met, Olaf this lil Chihuahua, barked at me once, and I got kinda scared, so I jumped on Pete, and put my front paws on his shoulder!)  Oh yeah, and the other dog who went home is Rupert, he went to his forever home on Wednesday!  And, Etta & Ethan were at the event, too, and they are ALWAYS a riot to watch!!  They’re silly, and real cute the way they play together and with all the other doggies they meet!

Last time I did this blog thingy, I talked a lil ’bout my personality, and some of my quirks, but want to fill you in a bit more ’bout me.  A couple months ago, I gotta to go to a 5K walk/run with a volunteer (she’s one of my favorite humans, Angela), and ’cause it  was real early in the morning, I got to have a sleepover at her house.  It was awesome!!  She said I was a real good boy, and I pottied outside everytime, so I’d adjust real quick to that part of bein’ in a home!  I’d really like a forever home with another doggy like me to play with, I think… I mean I’d be ok as an only dog, too, but it’s fun playin’ with other dogs… especially if I met another Hound like me!  I’m still workin’ on my leash manners… but even though I pull pretty hard, I’ve heard Barley is like SUPER strong… and I’m not quite that bad… I don’t pull much after we’re walkin’, like on the Pack Walks.  Our humans say I’m smart, goofy, curious… and they’ve FINALLY found hard toys I like a LOT. I’d prefer soft toys… but I’m kinda obsessed with them, and ’cause our humans hide ’em from me, when I do get my mouth round one… well, I don’t wanna let go, but I do… eventually, lol!!

I’m gonna go… time to go for a walk!  Don’t forget to check out hsgkc.org for more info ’bout Art Unleashed, it’s supposed to be lots of fun — and you’ll get to meet ME there!!!  Cross your paws for me ’bout this bein’ the event where I meet my forever family!  Bye!!

Hey humans, what’s goin’ on with you?  Our humans are real busy here with some upcoming satellite adoption events, Art Unleashed, and there are 2 new humans who are training to work with us dogs!  There’s a satellite event on Saturday, August 15th, from 9 am (that’s early!) ’til 1pm called Tails on the Trails in Lenexa.  You can bring your dog, take your dog for a swim, enter the pet talent show, and meet lots of dog friendly vendors and adoptable dogs.  I’m gonna hang here ’cause I don’t really wanna go hang out with a bunch of other dogs… see I’m the kinda dog who really loves bein’ the ONLY pet in the home so I’m the center of attention!  I heard our humans talkin’ ’bout Tails on the Trails, and I guess it’s best that real dog friendly dogs go ’cause there’s gonna be lots of dogs there… so I think Farley, Ethan & Etta, Bowie, Mollie, and maybe a coupla other dogs are goin’ too.

Art Unleashed is a big deal, too, and that’s comin’ up on August 22nd.  It’s this real big fundraiser to help our humans here at HSGKC do all the great stuff they do for us… like take care of us when we’re not feelin’ good (like when I had heartworm treatment last year), and for new stuff like the BEG Program Pete has been workin’ on for us dogs!  Art Unleashed is a live and silent auction of original artwork, and I heard it’s a lot of fun.  If ya wanna learn more ’bout that and get yourself some tickets, check out hsgkc.org for details!

I suppose some of ya might be wonderin’ why I’m bloggin… well, I came back to HSGKC after being adopted last year.  See, our humans love us all so much they promise to always take us back if things aren’t workin’ out for us in our adoptive home… for dogs and cats, even if it’s 10 years from when we got adopted.  So, here’s the deal… I’m a kinda complicated dude.  I’m very, very smart… but I do got some quirks.  The humans who did adopt me loved me very much but, without meanin’ to be, I was a bit too much for them to handle.  I don’t wanna scare ya, ’cause I am a good boy!  I’m a Husky/Shepherd mix and I’m about 7 years old.  After I’ve been in a home for a bit, I feel it’s my job to be protective of my humans and my home, and even though I’m trying to do a good thing, I guess that makes it kinda hard on my humans if they have lots of people coming over.  So a quieter home without lots of visitors might be better for me. I am really, really affectionate, loyal, and sweet with adult humans I know. But I’ve gotta be the only pet in the home. I’m already house trained, and I’m good ’bout stayin’ in a kennel during the day.  I’m strong, too, but walk pretty good on a leash, and can walk with some other dogs, but they gotta respect my space bubble.  I’m just real happy the humans who had me brought me back here though, ’cause I know our humans will work hard to find an awesome match for me… someone who wouldn’t mind only havin’ one dog, and who’d work with me, and love me as I am.  I know I’d be a great dog companion for someone!

Time for me to go for a walk!

Bowie (Adopted!)

Hey there humans, how-ya doin’?  My name is Bowie.  I’m a 5 year old Pit Bull mix with the most awesome eyes… see I’ve got one blue eye and one brown eye… cool, huh?  I guess our humans named me for some famous guy named David Bowie ’cause he’s got 2 different eye colors, too.  Anyways, I was found as a stray right after the 4th of July… all of those booms and bright stuff up in the sky was kinda scary, ‘specially ’cause I was out on my own.  Well, a nice woman found me and brought me here.  I was reallly skinny!!  I only weighed 33 pounds when I came in, I had some sores on my legs and didn’t smell so good (I overheard the humans who take care of us sayin’ I kinda looked like a baby hippopotamus, and I dunno what that is, but I’m guessin’ it’s pretty dang cute if it looks like me).  Now, ’cause our humans are soooo awesome, I weigh around 45 pounds, after less than 1 month!!!  They’re feedin’ me good here!

I guess ’cause I’m lookin’ so handsome now that’s why I gotta go to my first satellite adoption event thingy last Saturday, and… I’m goin’ to another one on Friday!!!  I’m really excited!  Me, Ethan & Etta, Farley, and maybe a couple more dogs are going to Tail Waggin’ Pet Stop for a human event called First Fridays… I think it’s got somethin’ to do with art… and hey, that reminds me, HSGKC has a BIG fundraiser comin’ up August 22nd called Art Unleashed… sorry, I got kind sidetracked.  So, anyways, we’ll be at the Tail Waggin’ Pet Stop this Friday, August 7 from 6-8 pm, if ya wanna come meet some of us!  I gotta say, Ethan & Etta are a hoot to watch!  They’re super cute together, and we’re all hopin’ they go to a home together!  I wish my best friend, Dwayne (our humans have been goin’ back and forth ’bout his name… some humans like the name Dwayne, and others like the name Bullwinkle… you humans are so FUNNY) could go, too, but he’s not quite ready to go to somethin’ like a satellite yet ’cause he’s still bein’ treated for demodex mange.  He’s real sweet, like me, and we LOVE playin’ together.  Sometimes though… if we’re left to our own devices, we kinda get into a lil bit of trouble… we don’t mean to, but we’re dogs, and sometimes we just wanna chew some stuff up.  Sorry ’bout the extension cord and the doggy bed, btw.  I think this is gonna be a busy month for our humans with the satellites and Art Unleashed comin’ up.  Check out hsgkc.org for more info about the upcoming events!  And, don’t forget, you may wanna come meet me on Friday!  I’m a real good boy, I walk nice on a leash, I’m good with other dogs, and I’m great with humans of all ages!

That’s all I got for now… ‘ll talk ’bout the kinda forever home I’d like the next time I blog (unless I get adopted… which could happen).  I’m gonna go hang with Dwayne for a bit, then take a nap.  Bye!
