Leo (Adopted!)


Hey humans, or people!  What’s goin’ on with you?  I’ve got lots to tell ya ’bout… here’s what’s been goin’ on.  Last week Christine was super busy ’cause of the Plaza Art Fair, and lots of dogs got adopted, like Tommy Boy (his name is Murphy now), Rukus, and all the Shepherd mix puppies who came here in a laundry basket… someone had found them behind a dumpster at a food place.  I got to go to the Plaza Art Fair, too, and had fun gettin’ lots of attention… and I heard Jana tell Christine that I’m a “great satellite dog”!

I haven’t blogged in a while ’cause I did go to a home for a while, but decided I really didn’t want to live with cats. I would love to chase them, especially outside, but humans I guess don’t like this, so I’ve decided I don’t wanna live with them, it’s too much work.  Then I went to a doggy daycare place for a while, and decided I wanted to come back here… in my next forever home, I gotta be the “alpha” dog, I don’t like being ’round other dominant dogs… they make me a lil nervous, but I love havin’ doggy friends! Pete is workin’ on tryin’ to find a new roommate for me, and I know it takes time to match us up right!

This is what I’m most excited about… agility!!!  Last week Christine took me out to try out a couple new agility things instead of only a walk (we did that, too).  She was real proud of me ’cause I learned how to do the Dog Walk, A-Frame, and the Bar Jump (she tried to teach me the Tire Jump Wednesday, and I tried to jump over the whole thing, so she tried the Bar Jump instead).  Anyways, on Saturday, Christine wanted to show Pete what I’d learned, and he was impressed with me!  He helped teach Christine how to take me up the Teeter-Totter (that’s a lil tiny bit nerve-racking), and we did it!  I got tons of treats and was told how smart I am!  I did learn how to do the Tire Jump, too, with Pete’s help, and I rocked!  I heard Porter sayin’ something ’bout how our humans are workin’ on more agility stuff for us, and a yard for just that, and I’m real excited to learn new things!  Also, Tuesday night when I was in obedience class, I learned “down” and did it right for the first time!!  I love learnin’ all kinds of new things.

Gotta run… it’s time for me to go for a walk!


Here I am mastering the teeter-totter!


And the jump! Agility is super fun!

Mischa (Adopted!)


hi!  my name is Mischa an’ Christine’s helpin’ me blog today ’cause i get to go to my first fundraiser tonight at Gordon Biersch in Leawood from 5:30-7:30 (I had to get some help with that part…big words for me).  it’s my first time goin’ to do somethin’ like this, an’ i think i get to go to the Plaza Art Fair this weekend, too. anyways, lemme tell ya a lil about me.  so, you already know my name is Mischa, i’m 5 months old, an’ i’m a shar pei mix.  i was found as a stray an’ a nice human brought me here.  i’m very, very, sweet an’ playful.  like on sunday i met Bandit an’ Vinny, an’ really loved playin’ with both boys, but really like Bandit. Christine an’ Jana wanted us all to meet an’ play together a lil to make sure we’d get along so we could all 3 go to the thingy tonight.  i’m real excited to go an’ meet new humans an’ scope things out so i kinda know what’s gonna happen this weekend!  i’m full of energy, so i love seein’ new stuff an’ learnin’ new things!  plus, Vinny told me when he’s been to thingys like what we’re goin’ to tonight, humans give us lots an’ lots of pets, make a big deal about how cute we are, an’ give us lots of treats!

i’m also happy ’cause today i got a new roommie named Rukus who’s lots of fun to run ’round an’ play with in the yard!  his roommie, Snoopy, an’ my roommie, Lola, got adop-tud this weekend (i think that means they have a family of their own now an’ get to live in a home… that sounds real nice), so i met him an’ we started playin’ together right away!  i’m happy to have a friend to curl up with at night… i got a lil lonely after Lola left, but not anymore!  i know i’m talkin’ ’bout lots of different stuff in a funny order, but i’m a puppy… so sometimes i forget what i was talkin’ ’bout before. anyways, if you wanna meet me, you can tonight or at the Plaza Art Fair this weekend!  i’m a real cute lil girl (i’ve heard our humans say that)… i can put on a real cute “sad puppy face” that makes our humans give me pets, an’ “coo” to me an’ stuff!  i love playin’ with doggy friends, too, an’ have lots of energy! i’m pretty good on a leash, an’ love goin’ on the Pack Walks, too!

i’m gonna go for now… i think i might be getting a bath soon so i look real pretty for tonight!  bye!!

Rukus (Adopted!)


hi… my name is Rukus, an’ i’m a 5-6 month old Collie mix an’ I came in with Snoopy.  i’m a really sweet guy, an’ love spending time with humans cuz they pet me an’ love on me an’ give me treats!  i gotta confess somethin’ tho, i think the reason my name is Rukus is cuz when i came here i had a different name, so when Christine came into the room me an’ Snoopy were in, the first thing i did was bark at her… so she re-named me Rukus (i can’t remember my old name, and i kinda like “Rukus”).  i still bark a bit, but that’s just cuz there’s lots an’ lots of stuff goin’ on, an’ i’m still a pup, so i dunno yet how else to act!  when i first got here, i was a lil bit shy, but i figured out real quick the humans here are real nice!  i’m workin’ on bein’ more outgoing like Snoopy is, cuz i wanna find a forever home.

i’d love a real home of my own.  bein’ in a house for a while was sooooo nice after bein’ out an’ about with Snoopy by ourselves, so i wanna talk ’bout the kinda forever home i’d like.  i’m a real nice boy, i walk real easy on a leash, and i like to play with Snoopy an’ other puppies lots… so i’d be VERY happy to go to a home with a doggy brother or sister. and, i’ve got lots of energy, an’ i know after i’ve been in a play group, i’m kinda tired… hey, that’s sneaky of our humans… they put us in play groups so we can run off our energy then we sleep real good at night, an’ sometimes we’re all more quiet in the kennel after play-time… but that’s k cuz i have lots of fun!  i heard Denver an’ Dakota get to go to a home together cuz they’re bro’s, but me an’ Snoopy don’t got to go to a home together.  i really like other doggies, so i don’t think it’d be too hard to find a good brother or sister for me… but if ya want me an’ Snoopy together, that’s cool too!  i haven’t met alot of small humans yet, but cuz i’m me an’ a sweet boy, i’d probly be ok with them.  i dunno ’bout cats yet, they look like fun to chase, but i think some humans have “rules” ’bout chasin’ cats… silly rules!  anyways, cuz i like runnin’ an’ playin’ so much, i’d love a big yard with a fence, kinda like we have here.  i dunno, i think Christine will help find a great match for me cuz that’s what she does.  if ya wanna learn more ’bout me, how to adopt me an’ stuff, check out hsgkc.org.

k, that’s all i got for now… plus, i’m gettin’ ready to go out an’ play with Snoopy… that’s way more fun than this “blog” thingy!  bye!!

I'm still a pup but I can keep up with Snoopy!

Snoopy (Adopted!)


Hey humans, what’s doin?  My name is Snoopy and I’m a Shar Pei mix, and I’m ’bout a year old.  I ended up here ‘cuz some nice woman found me and my roomie, Rukus, runnin’ ’round as strays, and she kept us ’til they had room for us here.  But, we don’t gots to go to a home together like Denver and Dakota.  So far, I like bein’ here.  There’s lots to see what with all the dogs in the kennel and our humans.  They take real good care of us, feedin’ us good food, and making sure we’re healthy.  We get to play outside in a big yard and run ’round playin’ (like me and Rukus do cuz we’re roommies), and we get to go on walks, and on Sundays we get to go on longer walks called “Pack Walks”.

Last Sunday, Christine walked me, and when we came back inside to cool off for a lil’ bit before goin’ to get breakfast, I gave Christine a hug.  She made a big deal ’bout how cute that was, and so did the other humans hangin’ with us, too, like Jana, Valerie, and I think Chuck probly thought it was cute even tho he didn’t say anything’.  I’m real gentle like when I give hugs, so I oh so softly climb into their lap and put my head over their shoulder, then the human’ll wrap their arms ’round me and give me kisses on my head.  I’m gonna try this on more humans cuz I like gettin’ special attention like that… it’s almost better than treats!

Anyways, I wanna talk ’bout the kinda forever home I want, but I’ll wait ’til it’s my turn to blog again.  I’ve heard our humans talkin’ ’bout a big event thingy called “Art Unleashed” that’s goin’ on tonight.  Hercules was nice enuff to tell me and Rukus ’bout it, even tho i think he told us just so he could show off how smart he is.  So the thingy tonight is suposbly cool for humans to go to cuz they can buy stuff called “artwork” and the “money” they spend all goes to HSGKC to help our humans pay for stuff they need to take care of us like they do.  I dunno what “money” is either, but I think it’s important… and I don’t wanna ask Hercules anything else to puff up his ego. K, what I’m gettin’ at is you should go ‘cuz if you go and spend money, it helps take care of us.

I gots to go, it’s breakfast time!!  See ya’!


I like to give hugs and get loved on by humans!


Rukus tries to catch me but I’m too fast!
