Ethan & Etta (Adopted)

ethan

hi humans!  i’m Ethan, an’ my sis is Etta!  i’m gonna try this blog thing first cuz my sis is a tiny bit shy at first… then she’s just as happy-go-lucky an’ outgoing as me!  here’s our story so far… we’re Pit Bull/Dachshund (funny spelling, huh?)/Corgi mixes or somethin’ like that, an’ we’re 6 months old.  KCK animal control found us, an’ we were real sick with parvovirus AND had dee-moh-dex mange, so we were brought here, after we went to VCA Welborn Animal Hospital cuz we had to get treated for parvo.  we’re so glad we got to come here!  we’re doin’ lots better now an’ our fur has grown back an’ everything!!  HSGKC has taken in lots of puppies since we came in who have dee-moh-dex mange, too… Wilbur, Homer, French Fry, an’ Dwayne… you’ll probly meet some of them soon, ‘cept for Wilbur cuz he’s gonna be adopted next week!

anethan&ettayways… i thought maybe you humans would like to know a lil more ’bout dee-moh dex so it doesn’t seem so scary!  ya see, dee-moh-dex is a mite that lives on all doggies an’ sometimes when doggies immune systems (i gotta say, humans got lots of big words for stuff…
sheesh!) are immature (like for us puppies), or if there’s a lot of stress (like we’re puppies fendin’ for ourselves on the streets without a home or a mommy), then the stupid lil mites get outta control an’ start attacking our fur!  how rude! as if we don’t already have enuff goin’ on!  anyways, sometimes it looks real bad… like we get scabs, an’ lee-juhns, an’ sometimes humans think we look icky… well we can’t help it!  we feel like we’ve got somethin’ called “poy-son ivy” (a rash humans get, i think) all over our whole bodies, an’ we itch real bad!  the good thing ’bout dee-moh-dex is that it’s not con-tay-jush to other doggies, kitties or humans!  the other kinda mange, scay-bees or sar-cop-tick mange is con-tay-jush!  i’m happy we don’t got that kind!  the humans here take real, real good care of us, an’ we take medicine to kill the stupid lil mites, an’ we gots to have regular medicay-ted baths til we get better!  how long it takes for us to be all healthy jus’ depends on how bad the mites are!  k, so i’m gonna let Etta talk ’bout somethin’ excitin’ for us tomorrow!

ettahi… i’m Etta an’ i heard our humans talkin’ ’bout a sat-el-ite adop-shun event me an’ Ethan getta go to tomorrow!!  i’m a tiny bit nervous ‘cuz i’m not totally sure what it’s all ’bout, but i’ve heard they’re lots of fun!  we’re gonna be at some place called Four Paws antry & Spa in Olathe from 11-3 on Saturday, August 1!  you can check out hsgkc.org for more info!  i think it’s gonna be fun… we’re gonna meet new humans, some doggies, an’ if i ‘member right, when doggies go to sat-el-ite adop-shun events, humans make a REAL big deal ’bout how cute us dogs are (an’ me and Ethan are real cute… ask anyone, an’ check out our video, too!), give us lots of treats, an’ play with us an’ stuff!  sometimes, humans meet doggies at the event thingies, an’ wanna even adopt dogs they meet!  that’d be soooo awesome!  me and Ethan really wanna go to a forever home together!  we’ve been thru a lot already, an’ our super nice humans don’t want us to be split up cuz we’re so cute together!  the next time we blog, we’ll talk ’bout the kinda forever home we want… unless a family decides they wanna adopt us before then… that’d be so cool!

k, we’re gonna say bye for now cuz it’s time for us to go outside an’ play with Wilbur! don’t forget to check out hsgkc.org for more info ’bout adopt-shun, the event tomorrow…an’ you gotta watch our video!  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!

Heya humans, Ah hope ya’ll are doin’ good an’ enjoyin’ sum ah this sunshine!  We’re all happy ta see da sun after all da rain da pass coupla days… but dere’s still ah big ole’ mud puddle for us ta roll ’round in… he he!  So, Ah wanna update ya ’bout some ah da tings goin’ on here.  Mah newest roommate, Aubrey, went to a foster home last week.  Nemo got himself a forever home, an’ he’s real happy dere.  Ah coupla puppies, Lass an’ Cookie got themselves forever homes, too, an’ Ah’m real happy for dem.

‘Cause dese oder dogs found forever homes, that gots me thinkin’ ’bout some stuff… Ah tol’ ya ’bout da kinda forever home Ah’d lak last time, but what Ah was thinkin’ ’bout is dere are lots ah Pit Bulls an’ Pit Bull mixes lak me here at HSGKC… an’ Ah’m wonderin’ ’bout why dat is. Ah know Ah’ve heard some people talkin’ ’bout us, an’ Ah suspect it’s ’cause folks maght be ah bit ah-fraid ah us ’cause ah stuff dey hear.  So, Ah wanna tell ya’ll ’bout some ah our real good qualities so maybe some ah ya maght consider givin’ dogs lak me a chance.

See, here’s what ya’ll need ta know ’bout us Pit Bulls… dis is da important stuff, so pay real close attention:  WE LOVE HUMANS!!!  We love bein’ wit humans even more dan we lak bein’ wit oder dogs!  Most ah us are real, real good wit chiren (sometimes we jus’ get real happy an’ jump up, an’ we try ta be gentle but we can be ah bit much for small, small chiren).  We love ta be somethin’ call “lap dogs”, meanin’ even do we’re kinda big, we love relaxin’ wit humans an’ layin’ on dem!  We love givin’ kisses (Brownie gives LOTS of kisses, an’ Ah do too, but Ah’m ah lil less intense ’bout kisses dan he be).  Almost all of us Pit Bulls here at HSGKC lak oder dogs… now summa us are kinda picky ’bout da dogs we like, but dat’s okay… no one laks everyone dey meet, ya know?  Ah know it ain’t always easy ta have ah Pit Bull ’cause when ya move ya gotta find ah city an’ ah place ta live where we’re allowed.  An’ when we’re your dog, you an’ your dog respresent all us Pit Bulls out dere, so we gots ta be on our very bestest behavior… but dats not too hard ta do!  We do gots some energy, an’ we’re strong, but after we’ve been for ah walk, or ah jog, or had some good ole’ play tahme, we jus love coolin’ down an’ cuddlin’ up wit our humans.  We’re not real hah energy dogs, ‘cept when we’re pups… but we grow outta dat pretty fast.  We’re smart, too, an’ sensitive ta our humans an’ envih-roh-ment, which means dere’s more goin’ on wit us dan ya maght think.

Well, Ah hope dat maybe Ah tole ya somethin’ new ’bout Pit Bulls dat ya didn’t know before, an’ dat if ya want ah best friend… ah dog who’ll go on walks an’ stuff wit ya, chill wit ya, an’ be your companion, den maybe ya’d think ’bout givin’ one of us ah forever home.  Ah’m gonna go for now… Ah think Pete an’ Christine are gonna try an’ get me anoder roommate!

Brownie (Adopted with Oreo!)

brownie4

Hi humans!  What’s new with you?  I’m excited ’cause i just found out I getta go to Hamburger Mary’s tonight for a charity bingo thingy (I guess Bingo is a game you humans like to play) that will benefit HSGKC!  It’s from 7:30-9:30 pm, and I’m goin’ and so are Romy, Luke and Marvin!  I like goin’ to fundraisers ’cause I can give all the kisses I want!  And, I get lots of treats and attention, so it’ll be fun and I’m hopin’ that maybe someone real nice will meet me and wanna make me a member of their family.   Anyways, for more info ’bout where we’ll be tonight, check out hsgkc.org.

I wanna update ya on some of the adoptions, too… like Nemo got adopted again!  See, he had to come back here ’cause things weren’t workin’ out so hot for him in his new home… not his fault, and not anyone’s fault really… the other doggy decided he’d rather have his humans all to himself and didn’t wanna share with Nemo.  But, that happens sometimes, ya know?  Just ’cause we’re dogs doesn’t mean we all like each other!  So, this nice family came in and were wanting to maybe adopt a girl puppy, but Christine introduced them to Nemo and they fell in love with him!  I’m happy he found a new home pretty fast… and I’m ready for one, too.  Echo got adopted, too!  She’d been here for almost a whole year, but like our humans say… eventually a human or humans find us! Bianca is a lil sad without her BFF, but she’s gettin’ lots of extra attention from Jai, and Bianca and Zappa are workin’ on bein’ friends, which is cool.  Sasha was adopted and Mila, too!  Pete (fka “Skinny Pete”) went to a foster home last week, too… so lots of things have been changin’ round here.

One other thing I wanna tell ya ’bout that I’m real excited about… and other dogs, too, is the BEG Program is starting!!!  I think Radar and a couple other dogs have kinda mentioned it when they’ve blogged.  I dunno ’bout all the details, but Pete’s got lots and lots of ideas to help all of us dogs while we’re here waiting for our forever homes to enrich our lives with stuff like agility, and to help prepare us for our forever homes.  He’s awesome!  We’re excited ’bout it… and we’ll fill ya in when we know more.  I also know that our humans are tryin’ real hard to raise money for an agility yard for us, and to fix our fences…see there’s at least one doggy who’s bein’ a bit naughty and chewin’ the fence up!  Our humans are so puzzled ’cause they can’t figure out who’s doin’ it…  I may know, but I’m not tellin’ ’cause I’m not that kinda dog!

I’m gonna go for now… I gotta get a bath so I look real handsome for tonight!  Bye!!

Romy (Adopted!)

romy1

Hi everyone!  My name is Romy (I think I was named after a character in a movie called “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion”).  I’m a bit over 6 years old and I’m a Chocolate Lab with a really pretty coat!  I was surrendered to HSGKC back in February by the family who I lived with because they couldn’t afford a surgery I needed. I’m embarassed to say why I needed surgery but I guess you’ll wanna know…. I ate a sock… again.  Oops… well anyway I know my family loved me and wanted me to get better but they couldn’t afford all the stuff I needed to get better.  Anyways I’m soooo glad I ended up here!  I have a great thing goin’ here… I have a roommate I like, Luke (I had a pup named Reuben livin’ with me for a bit… and he’s nice and everything, but I like Luke ’cause he’s real calm), and our humans got me all better and I feel AWESOME!

I just found out I get to go to an event called Dog-n-Jog this Sunday, June 14!!!  I’m so excited!!  I love goin’ to satellite events ’cause I meet lots of new humans… and I hope every time I go that maybe I’ll meet someone who falls in love with me and wants to give me a forever home again!  In case you’re wonderin’, I think the other dogs who are goin’ are Brownie, Mila, Thomas, Aubrey, Marvin, Farley, Luke, and Nemo (he was adopted but had to come back here ’cause even though the humans he lived with LOVE him, the other doggy in the family just didn’t wanna share attention with him… so he’s back, but that’s his story to tell, I just wanted to fill ya in a bit).  Ok, so back to me… I’ve heard that Dog-n-Jog is lots of fun!  I’m really happy I get to go and ’cause there will be lots of humans there that maybe a couple families will be interested in learnin’ more ’bout me!  The other cool thing ’bout Dog-n-Jog is that it’ll raise money for HSGKC so our humans can keep doin’ all the good stuff they do for us dogs and cats who are here waitin’ for their forever homes!  They need donations to help pay for stuff, like the pictures I had to have taken of my belly (I think those pictures are called x-rays… sheesh, ya’ll have lots of fancy words for stuff, lol), and for heartworm treatment like my roommate, Luke, had!  I’ve heard our humans talkin’ and they said Dog-n-Jog is lots of fun, and there’s still time to register if you wanna help us out!  It’s from 7-10:30am on the Country Club Plaza… that sounds like a fun, exciting place!  Anyways, you can learn more ’bout Dog-n-Jog from this link thingy, www.dognjog.org.

I’m gonna go for now… it’s time for me to go find a mud puddle to play in!  If I don’t get adopted soon, I’ll tell ya ’bout the kinda forever home I’d like when I get to blog next!  I hope to meet you at Dog-n-Jog!!!  Bye!!

Sasha (Adopted!)

sasha2

Hiya humans, my name is Sasha.  I’m about 2 years old, and I’m a Lab/maybe-some-Boxer mix.  I was found as a stray by KCK Animal Control back in March.  I was real sick with somethin’ called Parvovirus, and another tummy bug, and heartworm infection, AND I was real skinny… so, I was a mess.  I’m almost finished with my heartworm treatment, and I’ve gained almost 20 pounds since I first got here… so ya know our humans are takin’ real good care of me!  I’m happy, too, ’cause I got moved to the back room in the kennel area… see our humans gotta have a place to fix our food, do laundry, and give us baths, and when this building was designed they put a run in the back room for a special dog.  I know the doggy run back there is now called “Smiley’s Run” and it’s for special dogs like him and me who just need some extra TLC!  I LOVE bein’ in the back room!  I getta hang out with the humans who take care of us doggies and some of the humans who take care of the kitties, too!  I have my own doggy bed that I can lay on and I have more room to move around.  I love it when humans come back and visit me and I get so happy and excited to see them I use my paws a lot to get their attention, and to get them to play with me.  I play bow a lot… but they don’t seem to get that move… silly humans!  I getta just hang out in the back room… unless they have to bring another dog back to get a bath, then I have to go in my kennel ’cause I’m not a huge fan of other dogs, I prefer to have all the attention for myself.  I’ll tell ya ’bout that the next time I blog… for now I got somethin’ else to tell ya ’bout: Dog-N-Jog.

I’ve heard our humans talkin’ bout this big event thingy called Dog-N-Jog (I’m gonna call it DNJ for the rest of my blog… too much to type out, lol).  Anyways, DNJ is this Sunday, June 14 from 7-10:30 a.m. on the Country Club Plaza.  There’s a 1 and 2 mile run and a 1 mile walk, an agility course, and lots of other fun stuff.  If ya wanna learn more ’bout it and register online, go to www.hsgkc.org.  I’ve heard it’s fun for humans and doggies, and it raises money for our humans to keep takin’ care of dogs like me who are real sick, and need lots of medical care to get better!  I can’t go ’cause I’ve got ’bout 2 1/2 weeks left of “leash walk only” before I can run ’round.  That’s ’cause of the heartworm treatment… see I can’t have my heart goin’ too fast or it’d be real bad for me… so I’m gonna supervise the humans who are gonna bathe the dogs who are goin’ to DNJ to make sure they look their best!  Sometimes you humans need help from us dogs, too!  I keep myself real clean, my kennel is clean, and when the doggy yard is really muddy,  I’m always super careful to avoid the muddy spots when I go out for my morning walk!  I think I heard our humans sayin’ that maybe 7-8 dogs from here are gonna go to DNJ and represent all of us dogs here at HSGKC!  Whoever blogs tomorrow will fill ya in on who’s gonna go.  If you’re goin’ to DNJ and ya have a Black dog like me, be aware of signs of overheating… see ’cause of our coats bein’ Black, we get hot lots faster than other colors of dogs!  I know that may seem silly, but some humans don’t know that.

Well, that’s all I got for now… I’ll tell ya more ’bout me and the kinda forever home I’d like next time!  Bye!

Duke

duke30

Hey, my name is Duke.  I’m a 3 year old Shepherd mix.  Sometimes I can be a lil shy, and I’m not real sure what all you might want to know about me, but I’ll fill you in on my history. So, in January, a nice human picked me up and brought me here ’cause I had been hit by a car.  I was in pretty bad shape… like a spinal cord injury (sometimes the way I walk is a little funny), and then on top of that I had heartworm infection!  Well, all the humans I met here and at VCA Welborn took real good care of me, and now I’m all better and ready to find a forever home of my own.  The heartworm treatment was no fun at all, but I know I needed it and am real glad that’s over with.

Uuhhmm… well… oh, I did hear our humans talking about a satellite adoption event called “Paws @ the Mart” that’s comin’ up this Saturday, June 6 from 11-2 at Nebraska Furniture Mart.  I’m gonna stay here at the shelter ’cause Saturdays are usually when my favorite volunteers come in and take me for a few walks, give me lots of treats, and just hang out with me.  I think Luke, Farley, Breann, Mila, and Lucy might go.  Check out HSGKC’s website for more information.  Maybe someone there will see a picture of me and want to meet me… that would be nice.

I do this “air licking” thing when I see a human I know and love, and they all think it’s real cute and make a big deal about how cute it is when I do that.  I’m also real easy to walk on a leash, and I keep my kennel clean.  I’m a sweet boy, but choosy about dogs… like if I had to live with a dog, one who is really mellow would be best… but I’d rather be the center of attention.  I’m good with humans… I just have to warm up to new humans first. I’d like a home with adult humans, and older kids would be fine too.  I did go to a home for a couple days, but there were rules with the kitties inside the house I didn’t really want to pay attention to… I mean c’mon, they run, I’m a dog, of course I’m gonna chase them!

Well… I tried this blog thing out, and even though I kinda skipped around a bit, I’ve never done this kinda thing before so I did my best… and I’m a lil nervous.  Anyway, I hope the sun shines on Saturday for the satellite, and just in general… this rain stinks!  All of us dogs are goin’ a wee bit stir crazy with all of this rain!  Most of us are pretty good about not rollin’ round in the mud puddles, but the puppies and Romy… sheesh, they get our humans really, really muddy… which is funny, but don’t tell them I said that.

I’m gonna go outside for a few minutes before the rain gets worse. Don’t forget about the satellite adoption event on Saturday.  If you want to learn more about me or how to adopt me, you can find that info on HSGKC’s website.  Bye.

Update from Dixie

dixie20

Hey ya’ll, how’s it goin’?  I’ve got somethin’ real nice I wanna tell ya’ll ’bout… I’m in a foster (probably forever) home!  Ya see, this real nice couple applied to adopt me, and came out and met me earlier this month.  I was a lil unsure at first, but they played fetch with me out in the yard for a bit which was fun.  Then their daughter came to meet me, too, and they all really liked me a lot after we spent some more time together.  Anyway, ’cause I’m particular ’bout the humans I like (unless they have something very deee-li-cious, called corn-dogs… Angela, one of my favorite humans always brings them in for me when she visits HSGKC), they weren’t quite sure ’bout how I’d be in a home, so Christine suggested maybe they’d consider fostering me to give me a lil more time to adjust to a home, and they decided to give me a chance!

The mud puddle I found..."so much for the bath"!

The mud puddle I found… so much for the bath!

So, I’ve been livin’ with a mom, a dad, and a daughter who’s home from college for the summer, and I gotta tell ya’ll, I’m lovin’ it!!  I went to their house on May 17th, and the day before I left, Christine gave me a bath after Angela and Stan brushed me earlier in the day… well, when I got to the new place, I found a mud puddle to lay in which made my new parents laugh… and I was just doin’ it ’cause it was cool and I like rollin’ around in the grass and mud, I’m a dog after all.  Oh, and they started calling me “Betty” instead of Dixie.  I kinda like the name Betty… Dixie is nice, too, but Betty means somethin’ to them, so it makes me happy they changed my name… like I think they’re gonna keep me.  I’ve met a bunch of new humans, I have a HUGE yard to run around in, humans who take me on 3 walks a day, play fetch with me, and I get TONS of attention.  My new humans are real impressed with my manners… like I get to eat dinner when they eat, and I don’t beg for food, I eat my dinner and then just hang out and wait for them to finish.  They’re workin’ with me on how I meet new humans, too, and I’m improvin’.  Pete and Christine visited today, just to answer some questions my foster mom and dad had.  I was real happy to see them, and I showed how much I loved bein’ there ’cause I kept rollin’ over on my back for belly rubs.  They got to see the awesome backyard I hang out in, too.  They thought I looked sooo happy (Christine kept sayin’ that, and I am real happy).

Well ya’ll, that’s about all the news I’ve got for now… just thought ya might wanna know how things are goin’ for me.  I’m just real happy that this family is givin’ me a chance to become a part of it… not a whole lotta humans just want one dog at a time, and I’m real happy they’ve chosen me!  I’ll let ya know if they decide to adopt me, so keep readin’ this blog thingy for updates.  Bye ya’ll!

Look at how happy I am! I smiled for Pete & Christine.

hi humans, it’s been a bit since i blogged last an’ i’m soooo excited cuz i get to blog today! i just heard from our humans i’m gonna go to my very first satellite adoption event on Saturday!!!!!!  before Nemo got adopted (and we’ve heard he’s doin’ GREAT, btw), he got to go to lots of satellites cuz he was so easy to handle… not that i’m hard to handle, but he was pretty lazy from what i heard!  anyways, i got a new roommate, too, named Breann.  i LOVE her!  she’s so much fun to play with, and we’re ALWAYS playin’ together, in our doggy run and outside in the yard!  i like her the best outta the 3 roommmates i’ve had… Nemo, Bruno (he also got adopted and is doin’ great, too), and now Breann!  when Pete and Christine introduced us, i was real good… i think cuz when i saw her and sniffed her and checked her out, i thought she seemed cool and fun!  anyways, i got kinda side-tracked, but that’s cuz i’m real happy i get to go to a satellite and cuz i REALLY like Breann!  ok, so i hope Breann goes to the satellite, too, so i have a friend to play with, but if she doesn’t, that’s ok, too.  i’m goin’ to a place called Four Paws Pantry & Spa in Olathe from 11-3 on Saturday, May 16th!  Nemo and Bruno told me at satellites they’d get LOTS and LOTS of attention from humans… like bein’ petted, and gettin’ lots of tasty treats!  i know i’m gonna have to have a bath so i look my best for the satellite!  i dunno how i feel ’bout that yet, but i’ll let ya know if i like baths or not.  if ya want more info ’bout the satellite, check out HSGKC‘s website!  oh, i almost forgot, there’s gonna be another satellite on Friday at this play called the Art and Bicycle Clubhouse in a place called the Crossroads. it’s from 6-8.  i’m not goin’ to that one, but i thought some of ya might wanna know!

so… not to be too much of a gossip or nothin’, but i’ve been listenin’ to our humans talkin’ ’bout lots of stuff, and i’ve heard them talkin’ ’bout somethin’ called an “agility yard” and that coming real soon they’re gonna start a drive to raise money for it.  i know some of the dogs like Porter, Dooney, Vinny, an’ Leo got to try out some agility equipment that an Eagle Scout troop built and donated to us.  when they’d come back in after learnin’ some new stuff, they’d all look real happy and tired, like they had lots and lots of fun, and were gonna sleep real well that night cuz they were tuckered out from doin’ somethin’ new.  Nemo even went to some agility classes at The Dogs’ Spot, too, and he said it was fun… he wasn’t real into that kinda stuff, but he did it to make Stan (the volunteer who took him) happy and for food.  that got me thinkin’ that i hope our humans can get enough money to buy the stuff they need for the agility yard cuz i wanna check it out!  i bet i’d be real good at agility cuz i LOVE treats, i can jump pretty high, i’m smart, and i got lots of energy!  i think the agility yard is part of some big thingy Pete is workin’ on for us dogs to make our lives even better while we’re waitin’ for our forever family to find us here!  it sounds so cool!  Pete’s always lookin’ out for us, and so are the other humans who take care of us!  they’re awesome!

that’s all i got for now… but i’ll let ya know if i hear more ’bout the agility stuff!  don’t forget, if ya wanna come meet me Saturday, i’ll be in Olathe!  i’m hopin’ i meet my forever family at my first satellite… that’d be way AWESOME!  bye!!!

Zappa

zappa

Hey humans!  What is up?!?!  My name is Zappa… kinda cool name, huh?!?! I heard our humans say I’m named after some other human who was somethin’ called a “musician”, an’ even tho I dunno what a musician is, the dude must’ve been a cool guy for me to be named after him!  Anyways, here’s my basic info, then I’ll get to the more interestin’ stuff! I’m Pit Bull mix with some real big ears (all our humans love my ears!!!), I’m a lil over a year old, an’ I came here ‘cuz I was a stray an’  went in a yard with some doggies who were like SUPER protective of their yard, an’ kinda chased me off, but I got hurt while runnin’ for safety.  I’m good now, just got a few scars, but I’m still handsome!

I wanted to do this blog thing today cuz I heard there’s gonna be a satellite adoption event tonight at Tail Waggin’ PetStop in the Crossroads, an’ I don’t think I’m goin’  but my friend, Kenzie, might go (she’s been to a few satellite thingys an’ says they’re FUN!), an’ maybe some of the humans goin’ to First Friday might meet her or wanna meet me after they see a pic of me an’ how handsome I am!  I wanna talk a lil ’bout the kinda forever home I wanna have someday… I’ve heard the dogs here talkin’ an’ know that sometimes it takes us Pit Bulls longer to find forever homes than other dogs.  I think maybe it’s cuz we got a bad reputation cuz some not very nice humans use us for fighting each other.  I think I’m a good example of how cool most of us Pit Bulls are, good natured an’ everything… I mean, c’mon, even tho I hate to admit it, I went into the WRONG yard with some dogs who weren’t real happy ’bout me bein’ there… but instead of not likin’ other dogs, I do!  I LOVE Kenzie an’ am real happy to have a friend to run ’round an’ play with!  We wrestle, an’ play tug an’ stuff.  I’m real good with humans, too!  Like I know how to “sit” an’ “shake”, an’ even when I jump on our humans cuz I’m SO excited an’ happy to see them, I’m gentle… I just put my paws up on them so they’ll pet me!

K, that’s enuff serious talk…now I wanna tell ya just a lil ’bout the kinda forever home I’d like!  I’d really love to have a doggy brother or sister to play with, but I’d have to check ’em out first an’ make sure we “mesh” like me an’ Kenzie do, ya know what I’m sayin’?  I’m great with humans, an’ I’ve got LOTS of energy, so I’d love active humans to take me on lots of walks or runs!  I have been known to jump a fence on occasion, but if I got a friend to play with, or if a human’s outside with me, I stay in the yard I’m supposed to be in!  I do however think cats are LOTS of fun to chase… an’ I get it that some humans like cats (I will never understand those creatures), so my forever home should be kitty free!  I’d really love a house, an’ think I got too much energy sometimes for an apartment.  I keep my kennel clean, so I’ll be good an’ won’t potty in the house!

I’ve gotta run… time for me an’ Kenzie to go play!  Remember, if ya wanna learn more ’bout me, an’ the thingy at Tail Waggin’ PetStop tonight, go to hsgkc.org.  See ya!
