Hey humans! It’s been a while since I last checked in on this blog thing, and a lot has happened since I last wrote… like Darla finding her forever home! Even though I prefer my own company (and not to share attention from humans with other dogs or cats), I’m very happy for her ’cause I heard she had been here for a while, waiting for her humans to find her. When I say she’d been here a while, please don’t think anything negative about HSGKC… see from what I’ve noticed ’round here, this is a special shelter. Our humans care about us lots and lots, and want us to find forever homes, but lots of us dogs who are here make that job a bit challenging at times. So, if it takes more time for us to go to the right home for us, well, then it takes more time. Anyways, Darla was here for a spell ’cause she’s not good with most other dogs, or cats, but she’s perfect with humans, especially small humans, or kids. I’m also great with humans and kids, and love spending time with volunteers on Pack Walks, and playing in the yard (and with my favorite volunteer, Stan). They try to play fetch with me, but I’m quite a tease about bringing back the rope or ball to them… they think it’s frustrating, and I think it’s funny! I gotta entertain myself sometimes!
So after Darla went to her forever home, I started thinking ’bout my ideal forever home. I want to be the only pet. I do want all of the attention for myself, and even though I’m 5 years old, don’t let that fool you… I’d love an active person or family to live with! Last fall, Pete and Christine taught me some agility stuff, and I LOVE AGILITY!!! It’s so much fun! I’m very precise, and really have fun running up the A-Frame, and over the Bar Jump! I’m pretty good on a leash, and love going for walks, and would love to go for runs or jogs, too. I’d probably be okay in an apartment, as long as my new family would take me someplace (by myself, of course) to run around in a fenced in area. I’d love a house with a fenced yard, but an apartment would work in a pinch. I’m pretty smart, too, and Stan is taking me to obedience classes at The Dogs’ Spot. I’m learning all kinds of things, like “sit”, “down”, “leave-it”, “watch me”, and I’m working on “stays” even though they aren’t my favorite thing to do (“stays” are kind of boring). I love going to class with Stan on Saturdays! I’m excited about this Saturday ’cause in the morning I’m going on TV! You can see me on KSHB Channel 41. My Saturday is going to be AWESOME!
That’s all I’ve got for now…but I heard I’m probably going on the KC Pet Telethon this year, so if you miss me on TV Saturday morning, make sure to watch for me on the Pet Telethon. It’s Sunday, March 1st, from 6:30-9:30pm on 38 The Spot (all that’s a mouthful… sheesh). Peace out, I’ll talk at ya’ll later!
