Heya humans, Ah hope ya’ll are doin’ good an’ enjoyin’ sum ah this sunshine!  We’re all happy ta see da sun after all da rain da pass coupla days… but dere’s still ah big ole’ mud puddle for us ta roll ’round in… he he!  So, Ah wanna update ya ’bout some ah da tings goin’ on here.  Mah newest roommate, Aubrey, went to a foster home last week.  Nemo got himself a forever home, an’ he’s real happy dere.  Ah coupla puppies, Lass an’ Cookie got themselves forever homes, too, an’ Ah’m real happy for dem.

‘Cause dese oder dogs found forever homes, that gots me thinkin’ ’bout some stuff… Ah tol’ ya ’bout da kinda forever home Ah’d lak last time, but what Ah was thinkin’ ’bout is dere are lots ah Pit Bulls an’ Pit Bull mixes lak me here at HSGKC… an’ Ah’m wonderin’ ’bout why dat is. Ah know Ah’ve heard some people talkin’ ’bout us, an’ Ah suspect it’s ’cause folks maght be ah bit ah-fraid ah us ’cause ah stuff dey hear.  So, Ah wanna tell ya’ll ’bout some ah our real good qualities so maybe some ah ya maght consider givin’ dogs lak me a chance.

See, here’s what ya’ll need ta know ’bout us Pit Bulls… dis is da important stuff, so pay real close attention:  WE LOVE HUMANS!!!  We love bein’ wit humans even more dan we lak bein’ wit oder dogs!  Most ah us are real, real good wit chiren (sometimes we jus’ get real happy an’ jump up, an’ we try ta be gentle but we can be ah bit much for small, small chiren).  We love ta be somethin’ call “lap dogs”, meanin’ even do we’re kinda big, we love relaxin’ wit humans an’ layin’ on dem!  We love givin’ kisses (Brownie gives LOTS of kisses, an’ Ah do too, but Ah’m ah lil less intense ’bout kisses dan he be).  Almost all of us Pit Bulls here at HSGKC lak oder dogs… now summa us are kinda picky ’bout da dogs we like, but dat’s okay… no one laks everyone dey meet, ya know?  Ah know it ain’t always easy ta have ah Pit Bull ’cause when ya move ya gotta find ah city an’ ah place ta live where we’re allowed.  An’ when we’re your dog, you an’ your dog respresent all us Pit Bulls out dere, so we gots ta be on our very bestest behavior… but dats not too hard ta do!  We do gots some energy, an’ we’re strong, but after we’ve been for ah walk, or ah jog, or had some good ole’ play tahme, we jus love coolin’ down an’ cuddlin’ up wit our humans.  We’re not real hah energy dogs, ‘cept when we’re pups… but we grow outta dat pretty fast.  We’re smart, too, an’ sensitive ta our humans an’ envih-roh-ment, which means dere’s more goin’ on wit us dan ya maght think.

Well, Ah hope dat maybe Ah tole ya somethin’ new ’bout Pit Bulls dat ya didn’t know before, an’ dat if ya want ah best friend… ah dog who’ll go on walks an’ stuff wit ya, chill wit ya, an’ be your companion, den maybe ya’d think ’bout givin’ one of us ah forever home.  Ah’m gonna go for now… Ah think Pete an’ Christine are gonna try an’ get me anoder roommate!

Brownie (Adopted with Oreo!)

Hi humans!  What’s new with you?  I’m excited ’cause i just found out I getta go to Hamburger Mary’s tonight for a charity bingo thingy (I guess Bingo is a game you humans like to play) that will benefit HSGKC!  It’s from 7:30-9:30 pm, and I’m goin’ and so are Romy, Luke and Marvin!  I like goin’ to fundraisers ’cause I can give all the kisses I want!  And, I get lots of treats and attention, so it’ll be fun and I’m hopin’ that maybe someone real nice will meet me and wanna make me a member of their family.   Anyways, for more info ’bout where we’ll be tonight, check out hsgkc.org.

I wanna update ya on some of the adoptions, too… like Nemo got adopted again!  See, he had to come back here ’cause things weren’t workin’ out so hot for him in his new home… not his fault, and not anyone’s fault really… the other doggy decided he’d rather have his humans all to himself and didn’t wanna share with Nemo.  But, that happens sometimes, ya know?  Just ’cause we’re dogs doesn’t mean we all like each other!  So, this nice family came in and were wanting to maybe adopt a girl puppy, but Christine introduced them to Nemo and they fell in love with him!  I’m happy he found a new home pretty fast… and I’m ready for one, too.  Echo got adopted, too!  She’d been here for almost a whole year, but like our humans say… eventually a human or humans find us! Bianca is a lil sad without her BFF, but she’s gettin’ lots of extra attention from Jai, and Bianca and Zappa are workin’ on bein’ friends, which is cool.  Sasha was adopted and Mila, too!  Pete (fka “Skinny Pete”) went to a foster home last week, too… so lots of things have been changin’ round here.

One other thing I wanna tell ya ’bout that I’m real excited about… and other dogs, too, is the BEG Program is starting!!!  I think Radar and a couple other dogs have kinda mentioned it when they’ve blogged.  I dunno ’bout all the details, but Pete’s got lots and lots of ideas to help all of us dogs while we’re here waiting for our forever homes to enrich our lives with stuff like agility, and to help prepare us for our forever homes.  He’s awesome!  We’re excited ’bout it… and we’ll fill ya in when we know more.  I also know that our humans are tryin’ real hard to raise money for an agility yard for us, and to fix our fences…see there’s at least one doggy who’s bein’ a bit naughty and chewin’ the fence up!  Our humans are so puzzled ’cause they can’t figure out who’s doin’ it…  I may know, but I’m not tellin’ ’cause I’m not that kinda dog!

I’m gonna go for now… I gotta get a bath so I look real handsome for tonight!  Bye!!

Romy (Adopted!)

romy1

Hi everyone!  My name is Romy (I think I was named after a character in a movie called “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion”).  I’m a bit over 6 years old and I’m a Chocolate Lab with a really pretty coat!  I was surrendered to HSGKC back in February by the family who I lived with because they couldn’t afford a surgery I needed. I’m embarassed to say why I needed surgery but I guess you’ll wanna know…. I ate a sock… again.  Oops… well anyway I know my family loved me and wanted me to get better but they couldn’t afford all the stuff I needed to get better.  Anyways I’m soooo glad I ended up here!  I have a great thing goin’ here… I have a roommate I like, Luke (I had a pup named Reuben livin’ with me for a bit… and he’s nice and everything, but I like Luke ’cause he’s real calm), and our humans got me all better and I feel AWESOME!

I just found out I get to go to an event called Dog-n-Jog this Sunday, June 14!!!  I’m so excited!!  I love goin’ to satellite events ’cause I meet lots of new humans… and I hope every time I go that maybe I’ll meet someone who falls in love with me and wants to give me a forever home again!  In case you’re wonderin’, I think the other dogs who are goin’ are Brownie, Mila, Thomas, Aubrey, Marvin, Farley, Luke, and Nemo (he was adopted but had to come back here ’cause even though the humans he lived with LOVE him, the other doggy in the family just didn’t wanna share attention with him… so he’s back, but that’s his story to tell, I just wanted to fill ya in a bit).  Ok, so back to me… I’ve heard that Dog-n-Jog is lots of fun!  I’m really happy I get to go and ’cause there will be lots of humans there that maybe a couple families will be interested in learnin’ more ’bout me!  The other cool thing ’bout Dog-n-Jog is that it’ll raise money for HSGKC so our humans can keep doin’ all the good stuff they do for us dogs and cats who are here waitin’ for their forever homes!  They need donations to help pay for stuff, like the pictures I had to have taken of my belly (I think those pictures are called x-rays… sheesh, ya’ll have lots of fancy words for stuff, lol), and for heartworm treatment like my roommate, Luke, had!  I’ve heard our humans talkin’ and they said Dog-n-Jog is lots of fun, and there’s still time to register if you wanna help us out!  It’s from 7-10:30am on the Country Club Plaza… that sounds like a fun, exciting place!  Anyways, you can learn more ’bout Dog-n-Jog from this link thingy, www.dognjog.org.

I’m gonna go for now… it’s time for me to go find a mud puddle to play in!  If I don’t get adopted soon, I’ll tell ya ’bout the kinda forever home I’d like when I get to blog next!  I hope to meet you at Dog-n-Jog!!!  Bye!!

hi humans, it’s been a bit since i blogged last an’ i’m soooo excited cuz i get to blog today! i just heard from our humans i’m gonna go to my very first satellite adoption event on Saturday!!!!!!  before Nemo got adopted (and we’ve heard he’s doin’ GREAT, btw), he got to go to lots of satellites cuz he was so easy to handle… not that i’m hard to handle, but he was pretty lazy from what i heard!  anyways, i got a new roommate, too, named Breann.  i LOVE her!  she’s so much fun to play with, and we’re ALWAYS playin’ together, in our doggy run and outside in the yard!  i like her the best outta the 3 roommmates i’ve had… Nemo, Bruno (he also got adopted and is doin’ great, too), and now Breann!  when Pete and Christine introduced us, i was real good… i think cuz when i saw her and sniffed her and checked her out, i thought she seemed cool and fun!  anyways, i got kinda side-tracked, but that’s cuz i’m real happy i get to go to a satellite and cuz i REALLY like Breann!  ok, so i hope Breann goes to the satellite, too, so i have a friend to play with, but if she doesn’t, that’s ok, too.  i’m goin’ to a place called Four Paws Pantry & Spa in Olathe from 11-3 on Saturday, May 16th!  Nemo and Bruno told me at satellites they’d get LOTS and LOTS of attention from humans… like bein’ petted, and gettin’ lots of tasty treats!  i know i’m gonna have to have a bath so i look my best for the satellite!  i dunno how i feel ’bout that yet, but i’ll let ya know if i like baths or not.  if ya want more info ’bout the satellite, check out HSGKC‘s website!  oh, i almost forgot, there’s gonna be another satellite on Friday at this play called the Art and Bicycle Clubhouse in a place called the Crossroads. it’s from 6-8.  i’m not goin’ to that one, but i thought some of ya might wanna know!

so… not to be too much of a gossip or nothin’, but i’ve been listenin’ to our humans talkin’ ’bout lots of stuff, and i’ve heard them talkin’ ’bout somethin’ called an “agility yard” and that coming real soon they’re gonna start a drive to raise money for it.  i know some of the dogs like Porter, Dooney, Vinny, an’ Leo got to try out some agility equipment that an Eagle Scout troop built and donated to us.  when they’d come back in after learnin’ some new stuff, they’d all look real happy and tired, like they had lots and lots of fun, and were gonna sleep real well that night cuz they were tuckered out from doin’ somethin’ new.  Nemo even went to some agility classes at The Dogs’ Spot, too, and he said it was fun… he wasn’t real into that kinda stuff, but he did it to make Stan (the volunteer who took him) happy and for food.  that got me thinkin’ that i hope our humans can get enough money to buy the stuff they need for the agility yard cuz i wanna check it out!  i bet i’d be real good at agility cuz i LOVE treats, i can jump pretty high, i’m smart, and i got lots of energy!  i think the agility yard is part of some big thingy Pete is workin’ on for us dogs to make our lives even better while we’re waitin’ for our forever family to find us here!  it sounds so cool!  Pete’s always lookin’ out for us, and so are the other humans who take care of us!  they’re awesome!

that’s all i got for now… but i’ll let ya know if i hear more ’bout the agility stuff!  don’t forget, if ya wanna come meet me Saturday, i’ll be in Olathe!  i’m hopin’ i meet my forever family at my first satellite… that’d be way AWESOME!  bye!!!

Lucy: Watch for Me on the KC Pet Telethon this Sunday

lucy31

Hey humans, how are you?  None of us dogs blogged for a while because we wanted to respect Smiley‘s passing ’cause we know it was real sad for our humans.  Us dogs mourned, too, in our own way.  We’ll all miss him!

On a happier note, I’m really excited about a few things. I stopped givin’ our humans such a hard time, and have been really good in the yard lately… meaning I don’t jump the fence anymore as long as someone is outside with me.  That’s why I was jumping the fence, so I could go on walks (other than the Pack Walk, of course, I always get to go on those), and spend more time humans ’cause that’s what I love.  I even have a favorite volunteer, Crissy!  She spends lots of time with me when she comes in and she always walks me, too!  I think I’m her favorite!

Here’s my big news… I’m going to be on the KC Pet Telethon!!!!!  I found out Tuesday that I was chosen to be on the KC Pet Telethon this year, and I’m so happy about it.  It’s from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on March 1st, on 38 The Spot.  I don’t know all the details, just that it’s real big deal for our humans because the KC Pet Telethon brings in lots of donations for our shelter.  Those donations help our humans care for us dogs and cats (I still don’t see what all the fuss is about cats, but I know some humans really like them… I do enjoy watching them run around in the cat rooms, though), and help humans who live around here with their pets by providing low cost spay/neuter and wellness care (pets need to go to the doctor sometimes, too, ya know).  I knew something was up Tuesday morning ’cause Christine and Pete introduced me to Nemo (we’ll be going on TV together).  After maybe a minute, I decided I liked him okay and started to play with him a little bit.  Pete and Christine were really impressed about how good I was (I have a little crush on Diesel, too, but he’s healing from a surgery he had to have on his knee) with Nemo… so maybe if we keep doin’ real well together, we can hang out in the yard and play together.  I’ve heard the KC Pet Telethon is going to be even more fun to watch this year than last year with more fun stuff about our dogs and cats. I hope maybe someone will see me on TV and say “wow, she’s a beautiful dog… I want to meet her”.  I’ll get a bath and a pretty new collar to wear on TV, so I’m sure I’ll be looking pretty!

Make sure to watch the Telethon, donate, and check me out >
I’m gonna go for now, Pete is doing Volunteer Orientation, and I gotta check out the new humans coming in to meet us.  Bye!

Aubrey

aubrey

hi!  my name is Aubrey!  i’m a 7 month old pit bull mix an’ i get to live with Darla… she’s such a good “big sis”!  anyways, i came here ’cause i was real sick with somethin’ called par-voh-vi-russ when i was only 4 1/2 months old, then after i got all better from that, our humans found out i had somethin’ else goin’ on with my skin, called dee-moh-dex mange.  sheesh, i’ve had lots to get better from already an’ i’m still a pup!!  i’m doin’ so much better now, tho, an’ i’m almost finished with my medicine for dee-moh-dex!  all the humans here are so nice, an’ take real good care of us doggies an’ the kitties, too!  i gotta go to my first sat-ell-ite adop-shun event last saturday with Nemo, an’ Connor, an’ Butler (he’s in a foster home, btw) an’ i had lots of fun!  i think i made Nemo tired ’cause he had to take a nap!  he wanted to kinda show me how things go at the adop-shun events ’cause he’s been to lots, an’ knows how to impress humans an’ get lots of attention, an’ treats, an’ humans make a BIG deal ’bout him ’cause he’s real nice to everybody!  i had lots of fun, but i didn’t need a nap… maybe ’cause i’m younger than him, or i just gots more energy than he does!  i did get lots of treats, an’ just had fun doin’ somethin’ a lil different!

i just heard Jack is gettin’ adopted, so i wanna talk a lil bit ’bout the kinda forever home i’d like to have.  i LOVE playin’ with other dogs, like Darla, so i’d really REALLY love to go to a home with a doggy brother or sister ’cause i’ve got lots of energy, an’ it’s just fun playin’ with doggy friends!  (i wish Darla an’ i could go to a home together, but we don’t gotta, but it’d be nice ’cause she’s been here for a while… an’ i think she gets kinda sad when her roommate gets adopted ’til our humans find her a new friend).  i probly shouldn’t go to a home with real small humans ’cause i’m a puppy still an’ workin’ on that “play-biting” thing humans are ALWAYS makin’ such a big deal ’bout… i’m just real excited an’ wanna play!  i’m pretty good on a leash, an’ i don’t jump fences, an’ i might be okay with cats, but i like dogs more!  i like playin’ tug, an’ with rope toys, too!  i think maybe humans who wanna take me for lots of walks an’ runs would be great ’cause i’m kinda busy!  i love days when Chuck comes in (he’s Darla’s FAVORITE human in the whole world, an’ a volunteer), ’cause he always takes us for walks, an’ he always walks us together on the pack walks!

that’s all for now, i’m kinda tired after all the thinkin’ i had to do for this blog thingy!  if you wanna learn more ’bout me an’ how to meet me, you gotta check out hsgkc.org! bye!!!!
