Hey, how ya’ll doin?  I love all dis nice weather we’re havin’ an’ I’m enjoyin’ all da sunshine!  I wanted ta blog today ‘cuz I saw dat Rylee found a forever home, so I wanna tawk ’bout the kinda forever home I’d like… an’ I know some oder dogs are goin’ to a satellite an’ fundraiser thing later today at Gordon Biersch, an’ even tho I’m not goin’ ya never know who might be lookin’ to adopt a dog like me!

First, lemme tawk ’bout all ma good qualities, an’ I gotta few.  See, I’m real friendly with humans, I love hangin’ out with ya’ll an’ gettin’ treats, pets, an’ goin on walks.  I walk nice, like I don’t pull da human who’s walkin’ me too much.  I like playin’ fetch in da yard wit rope toys, an’ when I’m relaxin’ inside after a walk, I love stuffed toys cuz I like to find da thingy in dem dat squeaks an’ pull it out!  I’ve been to some obedience classes at dis place called “The Dogs’ Spot” wit’ a volunteer, Stan, an’ I’m learnin’ lots an’ lots ah new stuff.  I know how ta “sit”, “watch me”, “down”, an’ I’m workin’ on “stays”… dey’re kinda borin’ but Stan gives me really dee-li-cious treats when I stay like he asks me to!  An’ he gives me lots ah praise, too!  I’m real good in da yard, too, cuz I don’t jump da fence here.  I got more stuff to do dan botherin’ wit jumpin’ the fence!

I’d really, really like to be the only pet in da home.  I gots lots an’ lots to offer, like unconditional love, nice kisses, an’ just chillin’ wit my new family.  I don’t really wanna share any attention wit anoder dog, an’ I wanna just chase cats, which I know ya’ll don’t like so much, but I’m a dog, it’s what we do (I think dere’s somethin’ a lil strange ’bout dogs who like cats, it ain’t normal, but dats a whole ‘nother story).  I’d be real good with small humans, but not too small cuz I’m still workin’ on learnin’ somethin’ called “manners”… meanin’ when I get real happy an’ excited I jump up an’ I’m workin’ on learnin’ not ta do dat, but it’s hard!

Well ya’ll, dat’s all I got for now!  If ya don’t got anythin’ planned for too-naght, go to da fundraiser at Gordon Biersch to support HSGKC, an’ meet a few of da oder dogs lookin’ for forever homes, too.  If ya wanna learn more ’bout me or how ta adopt me, go to hsgkc.org or ma Petfinder page!  I hope all ya’ll have a real nice day!

Hey humans, what’s up?!?!  My name is Max and I’m one of the new dogs here, so I wanted to introduce myself and tell ya some stuff ’bout me. Someone tied me to a tree here one night and left me… but don’t feel bad for me ’cause of that, ’cause I’m here now and my life is goin’ juuuusst fine!  I have a doggy friend, Leo, I live with and we’re close to the same age, so we get along real good.  I’m a little over a year old… oh, yeah, and I’m a Lab/Hound mix.  I always look worried ’cause I have these “wrinkles” on my forehead our humans think are cute!   Saturday Leo and some of the other dogs here (Nemo, Willis, Rylee, Diesel, and Ladybug) got to go to Brookside Barkey and Bath for a satellite adoption event.  I didn’t wanna go ’cause when I went last month, I was kinda nervous ’bout all the new humans and “busy” stuff goin’ on… so I decided to come back here and hang at the shelter.  But I gotta go to obedience class instead at The Dogs’ Spot so I get to be ’round new humans and new dogs, and I’ve learned stuff so fast, I can start Intermediate Level! I like goin’ to do that kinda stuff, and goin’ on walks (like I LOVE goin’ on the Pack Walks, too!).  I’m hopin’ the dogs who go to the Barkery met some awesome humans who wanna adopt them!

K, so here’s whatcha need to know ’bout me… ’cause I’m kinda nervous at times, and ’cause I have LOTS of energy, I’d do best in a home without small humans… I don’t do nothin’ bad at all, it just takes me some time to warm up to new humans and find out I can trust them.  When I’ve spent some time with a human and know I can trust ’em, I’m real loyal to them! I do like dogs, but can be a little picky ’bout who my friends are… I don’t “get” dogs like Nemo who just like EVERYONE, ya know… I’m a little more selective. Also, I can jump a tall fence thingy too, unless I’m playin’ with Leo and bein’ supervised by a human… hee hee… this way I getta go on more walks!  So, what I’m gettin’ at is that I’d be good in a home without a fence, or with a tall, tall fence and another dog to play with!  One other real, tiny, little thing is I can’t live with cats.  I’ve got so much energy I just wanna chase them and I’m kinda a rough-housin’ kinda guy and don’t really know how to play real gentle with them. I’m so affectionate to the humans I know, and am real smart, too, and I walk pretty good on a leash!  When you see me, you’ll see how cute I am with my wrinkles!

That’s all I got for now, it’s almost time to settle in for the night.  If ya wanna learn more ’bout me, check me out on hsgkc.org.  Bye!

Rylee (Adopted!)

rylee6

Hey ya’ll doin’?  My name is Rylee and Ah’m ah Lab/Hound mix from Loo-sianah who came here with Diesel.  Ah’m a lil over a year old, and Ah’m ah real, real sweet girl!  Diesel already told ya’ll ’bout where we came from, so Ah just wanted ta innerduce mahself and tell ya’ll a lil bit ’bout me, who Ah is and the kinda forever home Ah’d really like ta get.  Ah love Diesel, but we don’t gots ta be adopted together, but Ah’d LOVE ah home with anoder dog (me and Diesel’d love ta go together, but we don’t gotta)! Ah’ve got lots and lots of energy and love ta wrestle and run ’round with Diesel in the yard. Ah love goin’ on the Pack Walks, too, ‘cuz they’s fun and Ah like bein’ ’round dogs and all the humans!  Ah’ve been ta a couple a satellite adop-shun events, too, and am hopin’ Ah’m fixin’ ta go on Saturday ta Brookside Barkery and Bath for the event then!  Adop-shun events are soooooo much fun cuz when us dogs getta go, we get lots and lots of deee-lih-shous treats and pets and attention!  Check out hsgkc.org for more info ’bout the event.

So, here’s the stuff ya’ll should know ’bout me.  K, Ah already told ya’ll Ah gots lots ah energy, and that Ah’d really love ta live with anoder dog, and cuz Ah’m energetic and spunky Ah prolly shouldn’t live with lil ones.  Ah like bigger kids and grown-up humans lots, but sometimes Ah can be ah lil shy when Ah meet humans Ah don’t know, but if ya give me ah treat, Ah start ta warm up pretty fast.  Ah’m mostly house-trained, but it’d take me a lil time ta adjust ta my new family’s routine and home, but Ah’s ah smart girl, so Ah’d learn fast!  Ah gots one flaw tho… Ah can’t live with cats… Ah wanna chase ’em too much, and Diesel tol’ me humans don’t like that too much.  Ah’m sure cuz Ah’m so sweet and friendly that humans could look past that one lil flaw Ah got!  One last thang, when me and Diesel came here from Loo-sianah, Ah was very underweight, and our humans are doin’ the best they can ta put some weight on me, but that takes time.  Ah think when Ah go ta my forever home, Ah’ll put on weight fast… cuz Ah just know that my future humans’ll spoil me rotten!

That’s all Ah gots ta tell ya’ll for now!  Don’t forget if’n ya wanna learn more ’bout me ta check me out on my Petfinder page!  Buh-bye!

Hey humans, ma name is Diesel.  Ah’m a 3 year ol’ Pit Bull mix who came here from Shreveport, Loo-sianah wit anoder dog, Rylee.  Ah lak her a lot, an’ she’s mah roommate here at HSGKC, but we don’t gotta go to ah home together, but Ah’d lak that.  Ah wanted to intro-dooce mahself to ya’ll an’ tell ya’ll a lil bit ’bout me so ya’ll know who Ah is.  Ah’ve been to ah couple satellite adop-shun events an’ heard one ah our humans sayin’ Ah’m ah “perfect satellite dog, an’ breed ambassador” ’cause Ah get along wit all kinds ah humans, chiren, an’ most dogs!  Ah think dat should make it easy for me ta find ah home soon… but Ah gots one lil quirk… Ah can jump ah fence.  Ah dunno what da big deal is ’bout that ’cause Ah think it’s ah great trick!  Ah don’t jump da fence here if ah human is outside wit me while me an’ Rylee are playin’, but if Ah’m by mayself, Ah would… so Ah’d lak ta go ta ah home wit anoder dog, plus Ah’ve got LOTS an’ LOTS ah energy!!!  Ah lak ta go for walks (Ah love goin’ on da pack walks!) or runs, so Ah’d lak ah active human or family ta live wit.  One oder thing, Ah wanna chase cats… dat’s lots ah fun, but Ah’ve heard humans don’t lak dat too much… sometimes ya’ll gots too many rules, but dat’s okay.  Ah don’t wanna do nuttin dat’d get me in trouble, an’ Ah lak makin’ humans happy!

Ah think Rylee’s gonna blog next, so Ah’m gonna go for now, plus it’s time for us ta go fo a walk!  Ta learn ’bout me, ya’ll can check me out on HSGKC’s website.  Ah’ll talk at ya’ll again soon!
