Heya humans!  How ya doin’?  I’m bloggin’ today for a coupla reasons…1 cuz I’m in HSGKC’s BEG Program Basic Obedience Class 1.0, (our first class was last night) with my fav human, Jai (just sayin’… you humans got lots of fancy words for stuff, lol)!, for 2 cuz I really wanna find a foster home… but I’ll talk ’bout that soon, an’ 3 cuz I’m goin’  to Four Paws Pantry and Spa in Olathe for a satellite on Saturday!  Awesome!! The satellite is from 11am to 3pm.

I love ridin’ in the car with my buddy Bianca!

K, so HSGKC’s BEG Program is somethin’ real cool started by Pete… he got a real spiffy title not too long ago, and he’s now our Director of Canine Enrichment, so he’s like the boss of doggy stuff here!  He’s gettin’ help from volunteers for stuff like our obedience classes to help improve our lives while we’re here waiting for our humans to find us, and to make us more adoptable by teachin’ us manners and such.  I spent the first part of class starin’ at my handsome self in the glass… but after a bit, I got the hang of things and did good… except I don’t lay all the way down…I like to lay down with by bum in the air!!  I think it’s funny!  I did “stays” pretty good for Jai, an’ “watch me”, an’ “sits”!  I think next week will be fun, too.  I’m in class with Penny Lane, Duke, Joe-Joe (he’s a REAL funny lookin’ dog), and Milo.  Obedience classes are just 1 thing our humans are doin’ for us, and all us dogs are super excited ’bout the fun things we’re gonna do (like AGILITY… I think I’d ROCK at that cuz I do like to jump high!).  Another cool thing is for dogs like me who are a lil choosy ’bout our doggy friends to get a “walkin’ buddy”… and I gots one, Bianca!  We’re cool together walkin’ and stuff, and we love gettin’ to go on long walks together!  See both of us play best with dogs who don’t care if they’re the “alpha” dog… and me and Bianca both think we’re the top dog, lol!  We go on errands with Jai, too, and love goin’ for car rides together! The BEG Program is somethin’ I think makes HSGKC real special… cuz our humans care about us a lot and wanna make our lives awesome while we’re here!

Time to stretch!

So the other thing I wanna talk ’bout is I do wanna find a foster home… see I’ve been here since March, and sometimes Pit Bulls like me have a harder time bein’ in a shelter for a spell.  We’re real sensitive to our environments… and we get stressed out cuz there’s always lots and lots of stuff goin’ on (like dogs comin’ and goin’, and humans comin’ and goin’), and we try real hard to adapt.  Well, I’m kinda showin’ some signs of stress and our humans just don’t like seein’ me stressed, so they’re tryin’ to find me a foster home.  I wanna make them happy cuz they’re always doin’ extra things for us, so I thought I’d blog ’bout wantin’ a foster home so maybe someone would wanna get to know me better, and foster me!  I’m a good boy, sweet, affectionate, and real smart.  I love goin’ on our Pack Walks, so I’d love an active human or two who’d take me on jogs, hikes, or long walks! I don’t gotta have a home with a fenced in yard cuz I can jump pretty high, but if ya gotta a tall fence (like at least 6 feet), that’d be cool, too.  I’m not the kinda dog who plays fetch much… I don’t really see the point in the game, like what’s fun about chasin’ a ball or rope, bringin’ it back to a human, and doin’ it all over again… hey ya know, if that’s the kinda thing ya like, more power to ya, but that’s kinda goofy, I think!  I’m kinda picky ’bout my doggy friends, so I’d either like a friend like Bianca, or a dog who’d just do their own thing and wouldn’t be all over me, ya know?  I’ve been told I can’t live with cats… cuz I like chasin’ them.  I’ve been ’round small humans (kids) and I’m good with them too, but maybe not real tiny ones cuz I’ve heard they need lots of attention!  I don’t make a mess in my kennel, so I’ll be good in your home, I promise!

Anyways, I’m gonna go for a walk with Bianca!  If ya wanna meet me, or learn more ’bout how to foster me, you can email Jai.  I’ll let ya know how I’m doin’ in class soon! Don’t forget to come out to Four Paws Pantry & Spa if ya wanna meet me and some other adoptable dogs!  Bye!!

Penny Lane

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!
