Hey humans, how’s it goin’? All of us dogs here are doin’ all right. After a bit of discussion amongst our humans, they’ve decided that I’m the new narrator for the HSGKC Dog Blog since Smiley is now at the Rainbow Bridge. I’m happy I was chosen to narrate (and I’m not at all surprised I was chosen, I mean, c’mon, I’m “Hercules the Magnificent” after all).
With my new title, this means I will fill you humans in on the stuff that’s goin’ on here at HSGKC. The KC Pet Telethon was a success, from what I’ve heard. All I know is that I was AWESOME! Christine worked with me for about 2 weeks to prepare for our spot on the Telethon, and I learned how to do some neat new tricks, like “finish”, “turn”, “spin”, and “crawl”. She was even more proud of me than she was last year ’cause I was so good for her! I can even do a lot of the stuff she taught me off leash, but that’s ’cause she always has really yummy treats for me, and I love workin’ for food! She’s gonna keep workin’ with me and teach me some new stuff, but I heard her talkin’ to Pete and Kate about Shiloh… I guess I’m gonna have to share some of Christine’s time with Shiloh because he needs to learn some obedience stuff, too, especially how to “stay”! I know I’m the smartest dog in the kennel, and as much as I hate to admit this (so don’t tell Shiloh, please), he’s a clever dude! He knows how to make a mad dash out of the building so our humans have to go chase him and lure him back… which is pretty funny! I don’t bother with those types of “games” ’cause I know my food is here, and my treats, so I wouldn’t run off!
I also heard some talk about a satellite adoption event Saturday, March 21, at Four Paws Pantry and Spa in Olathe from 11-3. I think Aubrey‘s gonna go, and I heard maybe Brownie will go to his first satellite. I do like going to satellites, occasionally, but I’d rather stay here Saturdays to human and dog watch… plus Saturdays are when the most volunteers come in, so I get A LOT of treats! I’m not gonna miss out on that for anything!
I almost forgot… big news… Gia, aka “Big G” was adopted Tuesday. She’s been my neighbor for almost a year, so I’m gonna kinda miss her, but I’m real happy her humans came along and adopted her! She’d been here for a little over a year, and was even skinnier than I was when I came in. She was lookin’ pretty good, ya know, for an American Bulldog.
One other lil bit of gossip/news, for those of you who have seen pictures of Pibble on our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages, she’s doin’ real well. I know I’m Christine’s most favorite dog, but I think Pibble is givin’ me a lil competition. Pibble’s healing well and is a real friendly girl from what I’ve heard. She won’t be ready for adoption for a while, but I thought ya might wanna know she’s doin’ good. That’s what makes this shelter so awesome… our humans really do everything they can to help us dogs so we can go to a forever home. I was skinny, and heartworm positive when I came in, and look at how handsome I am now!
That’s all the news I have for now. I’ll check in with you again soon.
