Hey there humans, how-ya doin’? My name is Bowie. I’m a 5 year old Pit Bull mix with the most awesome eyes… see I’ve got one blue eye and one brown eye… cool, huh? I guess our humans named me for some famous guy named David Bowie ’cause he’s got 2 different eye colors, too. Anyways, I was found as a stray right after the 4th of July… all of those booms and bright stuff up in the sky was kinda scary, ‘specially ’cause I was out on my own. Well, a nice woman found me and brought me here. I was reallly skinny!! I only weighed 33 pounds when I came in, I had some sores on my legs and didn’t smell so good (I overheard the humans who take care of us sayin’ I kinda looked like a baby hippopotamus, and I dunno what that is, but I’m guessin’ it’s pretty dang cute if it looks like me). Now, ’cause our humans are soooo awesome, I weigh around 45 pounds, after less than 1 month!!! They’re feedin’ me good here!
I guess ’cause I’m lookin’ so handsome now that’s why I gotta go to my first satellite adoption event thingy last Saturday, and… I’m goin’ to another one on Friday!!! I’m really excited! Me, Ethan & Etta, Farley, and maybe a couple more dogs are going to Tail Waggin’ Pet Stop for a human event called First Fridays… I think it’s got somethin’ to do with art… and hey, that reminds me, HSGKC has a BIG fundraiser comin’ up August 22nd called Art Unleashed… sorry, I got kind sidetracked. So, anyways, we’ll be at the Tail Waggin’ Pet Stop this Friday, August 7 from 6-8 pm, if ya wanna come meet some of us! I gotta say, Ethan & Etta are a hoot to watch! They’re super cute together, and we’re all hopin’ they go to a home together! I wish my best friend, Dwayne (our humans have been goin’ back and forth ’bout his name… some humans like the name Dwayne, and others like the name Bullwinkle… you humans are so FUNNY) could go, too, but he’s not quite ready to go to somethin’ like a satellite yet ’cause he’s still bein’ treated for demodex mange. He’s real sweet, like me, and we LOVE playin’ together. Sometimes though… if we’re left to our own devices, we kinda get into a lil bit of trouble… we don’t mean to, but we’re dogs, and sometimes we just wanna chew some stuff up. Sorry ’bout the extension cord and the doggy bed, btw. I think this is gonna be a busy month for our humans with the satellites and Art Unleashed comin’ up. Check out hsgkc.org for more info about the upcoming events! And, don’t forget, you may wanna come meet me on Friday! I’m a real good boy, I walk nice on a leash, I’m good with other dogs, and I’m great with humans of all ages!
That’s all I got for now… ‘ll talk ’bout the kinda forever home I’d like the next time I blog (unless I get adopted… which could happen). I’m gonna go hang with Dwayne for a bit, then take a nap. Bye!
