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.
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!
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!!
