Penny Lane

pennylane9

Hiya humans, my name is Penny Lane.  A couple times, I’ve met some new humans who thought about givin’ me a forever home… but decided that I wasn’t the best match for them.  So I thought I’d give this blog thingy a shot so ya can learn a bit more about me and who I am as a doggy.  Okay, so here’s the usual stuff humans ask… I’m almost a year and a half old, and I’m a…. ????… very mixed doggy breed!  I have some Wire-Haired Terrier, and probably some other breeds, too, but until our humans do somethin’ called a “DNA Test”, no one really knows what I’m mixed with.  I’m excited to find out what kinda dogs my parents were, too!  I was picked up by KCK Animal Control in February, and I had some complications with my health and needed a lil more TLC, so I stayed here after I got fixed up.

So, now that I’ve filled ya in on the boring stuff, here’s what I wanna tell ya ’bout.  See, I have this real cute face our humans really love!  I’m real sweet with humans, and LOVE goin’ on walks with volunteers, staff and on Pack Walks, then comin’ back an’ just chillin’ on the cool tile floor while I’m bein’ petted and given lots of tasty treats (I do this thing when I lay down that our humans tell me is really cute… I lay with my back legs out flat behind me like a frog… I do this because I get extra pets and attention ’cause I look soooo cute… humans are silly sometimes, but I love ’em).  At first when I got here, I was kinda unsure what to think ’bout the doggies I’d meet on a leash, so I didn’t behave the best… I  feel kinda bad ’bout that, but I’m LOTS better now!  I am great walkin’ with other dogs, and prefer to say that I’m very selective ’bout who I wanna be friends with… if I could, I’d love to be the only pet in the home ’cause I’d rather have ALL of the attention for myself… but I could share humans with cats… I suppose.  I’m not real interested in cats… they’re okay to watch, but that’s about it.  I would love to have an active family or human ’cause I do have a bit of energy, but I also know how to just chill out, too.  I love playin’ with squeaky toys, and I know how to sit real pretty for treats!  I’ve heard our humans and some of the other dogs, like Radar, talkin’ ’bout an agility yard they’re workin’ on building for us, and I think I’d rock at that kinda stuff!  I can jump real high, and I’m treat motivated, so I’d be easy to train!  That’d be great if the human or family who gives me a forever home wants to do that kinda stuff with me!

In case you’re wondering… I’m gonna update ya on some of the adoptions before I go for one of my daily walks… Oreo and Brownie got adopted together!!  How awesome for them! Their new humans love them, and their new mom is writing a blog called A PitiFULL Life for them to talk ’bout positive Pit Bull stuff!  Romy found her forever home with humans who met her way back at Dog-N-Jog, and she now lives with 2 brothers and 1 sister… all Labs, too!  Luke went on TV last week, and a real nice man saw him and told his wife, and they fell in love with Luke, so he went to his forever home last week, too!  I’m hopin’ I find a forever home soon, too, but I know that sometimes it just takes a while for our humans to find us here.

One more thing… I think Ethan and Etta are gonna blog ’bout the satellite adoption event this weekend, but they’re pups, and sometimes they forget things, so I wanna tell ya anyway.  Some of us are goin’ to Four Paws Pantry and Spa this Saturday from 11-3. If ya wanna know more ’bout the satellite, or about me, check out hsgkc.org for more info! Bye for now!

Oreo and Brownie (Adopted Together!)

brownie4oreo

Hi!  My name is Oreo an’ me an’ my bro, Brownie, get to try this blog thingy out today. First, I’ll tell ya a lil ’bout us.  See me an’ Brownie came from the same doggy parents an’ this real nice human had us for ’bout 2 years.  He had to move, an’ tried really, really hard to find a place to live where we could live to, but he couldn’t, so he ended up bringin’ us here.  We were kinda scared when we first got here, Brownie more than me, but after gettin’ used to all the noise an’ commotion, an’ goin’s on, we started settlin’ in.  Even though we’d really love to go to a forever home together, we don’t have to… even tho we’d miss each other, we’ll be okay.  Maybe if we don’t get adopted together, our new humans will wanna stay in touch so we can still hang out an’ play together.  Anyways, I got kinda sidetracked.  So, here’s what ya need to know… we’re both Pit Bulls, we’re 2 years old, an’ pretty good with most other dogs.  I’m a lil more picky than Brownie, but maybe it’s ’cause I got a bit more energy than he does!  We love humans!!!  We both love givin’ kisses, an’ goin’ for walks (I heard from some of the other dogs here that if you jump the fence, you getta go on more walks… so I figured out how to jump the fence, tee hee.  The dogs who don’t jump fences get to go on walks, too, but they also get to spend time hangin’ out in the yards longer, in case you were wondering ’bout that).  We both walk pretty good on a leash, an’ are good with adult humans, an’ small humans, or kids, I think.  I would love to chase cats, but our humans won’t let me, an’ I guess I understand that ’cause our humans love all the cats an’ dogs here ’cause they’re awesome like that.  That’s enough ’bout me, I’m gonna let Brownie have a turn now.

Hi… I’m Brownie.  Oreo is a bit more outgoing than I am, not that I’m really shy or anything, but I’m not as outgoing as she is.  I love goin’ on walks, too, and LOVE givin’ kisses! I went to a fundraiser at Gordon Biersch earlier this month, and one of the volunteers there said that I was a real flirt and a charmer… I’m not quite sure what all that means, I was just being myself and giving her lots and lots of kisses!  Oreo and I wanted to kinda tell you what we’re like, and the kind of forever home we’d like because there’s another satellite adoption event on Friday.  It’s at Tail Waggin’ PetStop from 6-8 p.m. May 1st for something called “First Fridays”.  I don’t know if I’m going yet or not, but I know last month Farley went, and this really, really nice human who spent a lot of time with him thought he might be a good match for her and her dog.  After Christine talked with her, Bruno ended up being perfect for her and he went to his forever home on Saturday… so we’re hopeful maybe someone will want to meet us!  I’ve been to a couple satellites and am real well behaved.  I’m good with both big and small humans, and most dogs.  I can handle my sister’s energy, and if I can’t go to a home with her, would really love to have a doggy brother or sister. I’ve been “cat tested” and behaved, but our humans would say that I should really be supervised if I were to go to a home with cats.  Both of us keep clean kennels, so we wouldn’t be hard to house-train… we’d just have to learn the routine in our new home. That’s a good reason to adopt an adult dog versus a puppy, just sayin’, ’cause we’re grown up an’ know house rules, like what not to do in a home.  Well, that’s all from me for now… bye!

I’m gonna finish up for me an’ Brownie… he’s not as much of a talker as me, I guess. Anyways, if you’re not busy with human stuff Friday, you should go to First Friday an’ meet a few of HSGKC’s adoptable dogs!  Tell ’em me an’ Brownie sent you… lol! If ya wanna learn more ’bout us, an’ info ’bout Friday, check out hsgkc.org.  Gotta go… it’s time for me an’ Brownie to settle in for the night.  Bye!!!  XOXO
