Heya humans!  How are ya doin’?!?!  I’m doin’ great and I’m excited ’bout some stuff I want to tell ya ’bout.  First, I found out I getta go to a satellite on Friday, September 4 at Tail Waggin’ PetStop for First Fridays in the Crossroads!

bianca_jai

This is me hangin’ out with my buddy, Jai!

Jai is gonna take me — YAY,  I getta spend some one-on-one time with my favorite human! I love all humans I meet, btw, but she’s definitely my fav!  She has a nickname for me, Binx, and she says I gots somethin’ called a “Bianca-dunk”… I think ’cause I wiggle my behind when I’m happy, and I have a cute bum… sorry I got kinda sidetracked again! Anyways, I’m goin’ with Skye (she’s my new BFF since Echo was adopted).  Skye is a real pretty girl… she’s almost all white with a lil tan spot, with real unique eyes that are both blue and hazel.  She’s a Pit Bull mix, like me, and she’s ’bout 9 months old.  Etta & Ethan are goin’, too, and a small doggy who is in a foster home, Yeti.  I’m just real happy I getta go!!  I do love humans a lot and I hope maybe I’ll meet someone awesome there who wants to give me a forever home!  Plus, it’s gonna be fun to go out and meet a bunch of new humans!  I had so much fun the last time I went to a satellite, and this time it’s gonna be even better ’cause I’ll get to play with Skye, too

So, the nice human lady who takes pictures of ALL of the dogs and cats here at HSGKC did somethin’ special for me… see Jai told Jana that I REALLY like playin’ in the kiddy pool! I LOVE splashin’ ’round in it, jumpin’ in, stickin’ my whole face under the water, then gettin’ up and runnin’ towards a human, shakin’ off when I’m right by them and getting’ them all wet, too!  When our humans watch me play in the pool, they laugh and smile a lot ’cause I’m havin’ such a good time!  Anyways, Jana made a video of me playin’ in the pool, so you gotta check me out!  I think I look pretty cute, too, and it shows the real playful side of my personality!  I just getta run ’round, play, and do what I want and just have FUN!

Throw a ball in the pool and I just can’t resist jumpin’ in!

I heard Jai, Pete and Christine talkin’ ’bout the BEG Program thing, and I’m gonna start some obedience classes soon. I know I gotta work on some “manners” a lil bit so I make an even better impression on humans than I already do!  I know “sit” and  I’m gonna learn some new stuff, and how to walk real nicely on a leash (I’m pretty good… unless I really wanna smell somethin’ or if I see a cat… then I pull a bit, which I know isn’t the most polite thing to do when I’m on a walk, but I’m just SO excited ’bout some stuff, I can’t help it!!!).  Don’t tell, but I’m kinda lookin’ forward to learnin’ new stuff… I wanna find a forever home, and if I know more stuff, maybe I’ll find a forever home of my own before too long!  I heard Farley and Roxy are goin’ to their forever homes soon, so I’m hopin’ I find mine too!

I gotta go, it’s time to go play with Skye!  I really hope I getta meet ya at Tail Waggin’ PetStop… we’ll be there from 6-8 p.m.  Oh, and don’t forget, if ya want to know more ’bout the satellite, me, and ’bout our adoption process, check out hsgkc.org.  Bye!!!

Farley: Meet Me at Art Unleashed!

farley_ball2

Heya humans!  How ya doin’?  I’m doin’ pretty good myself and I’m very excited ’cause I just found out I getta go to Art Unleashed on Saturday, August 22!!!  So, ’cause I’ve been listenin’ to our humans talkin’, I know this is like a BIG fundraiser for HSGKC with all kinds of stuff called “art work” to bid on in a silent auction (I dunno how ya can bid on sAU_LOGO2015whiteBG-01omethin’ if you’re silent, but that’s complicated human stuff I don’t worry ’bout too much), and there’s a live auction for super cool stuff too (like extra special pieces of art work, an’ some other cool stuff).  You can still buy tickets if you want… and all the proceeds are for HSGKC! It’s their second biggest fundraiser, and I know it costs lots of money to help all of us dogs and cats here, so Art Unleashed is real important for our humans to keep doin’ what they’re doin’!  I’m goin’ with Ethan & Etta and Roxy.  I’ve got a good feeling this is FINALLY “my event”… meanin’ some great humans are gonna fall in love with me as soon as they see me and wanna make me a member of their family!

I went to Tails on the Trails last Saturday at Ad Astra Park in Lenexa, and 2 other dogs who went with me got adopted!  Bowie went home Monday (I gotta admit, it was real cute watchin’ him crawl on his belly real gentle like to his 2 new doggy brothers who are lil dudes… and I gotta say Bowie’s braver than I am with small dogs… the first one I met, Olaf this lil Chihuahua, barked at me once, and I got kinda scared, so I jumped on Pete, and put my front paws on his shoulder!)  Oh yeah, and the other dog who went home is Rupert, he went to his forever home on Wednesday!  And, Etta & Ethan were at the event, too, and they are ALWAYS a riot to watch!!  They’re silly, and real cute the way they play together and with all the other doggies they meet!

Last time I did this blog thingy, I talked a lil ’bout my personality, and some of my quirks, but want to fill you in a bit more ’bout me.  A couple months ago, I gotta to go to a 5K walk/run with a volunteer (she’s one of my favorite humans, Angela), and ’cause it  was real early in the morning, I got to have a sleepover at her house.  It was awesome!!  She said I was a real good boy, and I pottied outside everytime, so I’d adjust real quick to that part of bein’ in a home!  I’d really like a forever home with another doggy like me to play with, I think… I mean I’d be ok as an only dog, too, but it’s fun playin’ with other dogs… especially if I met another Hound like me!  I’m still workin’ on my leash manners… but even though I pull pretty hard, I’ve heard Barley is like SUPER strong… and I’m not quite that bad… I don’t pull much after we’re walkin’, like on the Pack Walks.  Our humans say I’m smart, goofy, curious… and they’ve FINALLY found hard toys I like a LOT. I’d prefer soft toys… but I’m kinda obsessed with them, and ’cause our humans hide ’em from me, when I do get my mouth round one… well, I don’t wanna let go, but I do… eventually, lol!!

I’m gonna go… time to go for a walk!  Don’t forget to check out hsgkc.org for more info ’bout Art Unleashed, it’s supposed to be lots of fun — and you’ll get to meet ME there!!!  Cross your paws for me ’bout this bein’ the event where I meet my forever family!  Bye!!

Hey humans, what’s goin’ on with you?  Our humans are real busy here with some upcoming satellite adoption events, Art Unleashed, and there are 2 new humans who are training to work with us dogs!  There’s a satellite event on Saturday, August 15th, from 9 am (that’s early!) ’til 1pm called Tails on the Trails in Lenexa.  You can bring your dog, take your dog for a swim, enter the pet talent show, and meet lots of dog friendly vendors and adoptable dogs.  I’m gonna hang here ’cause I don’t really wanna go hang out with a bunch of other dogs… see I’m the kinda dog who really loves bein’ the ONLY pet in the home so I’m the center of attention!  I heard our humans talkin’ ’bout Tails on the Trails, and I guess it’s best that real dog friendly dogs go ’cause there’s gonna be lots of dogs there… so I think Farley, Ethan & Etta, Bowie, Mollie, and maybe a coupla other dogs are goin’ too.

Art Unleashed is a big deal, too, and that’s comin’ up on August 22nd.  It’s this real big fundraiser to help our humans here at HSGKC do all the great stuff they do for us… like take care of us when we’re not feelin’ good (like when I had heartworm treatment last year), and for new stuff like the BEG Program Pete has been workin’ on for us dogs!  Art Unleashed is a live and silent auction of original artwork, and I heard it’s a lot of fun.  If ya wanna learn more ’bout that and get yourself some tickets, check out hsgkc.org for details!

I suppose some of ya might be wonderin’ why I’m bloggin… well, I came back to HSGKC after being adopted last year.  See, our humans love us all so much they promise to always take us back if things aren’t workin’ out for us in our adoptive home… for dogs and cats, even if it’s 10 years from when we got adopted.  So, here’s the deal… I’m a kinda complicated dude.  I’m very, very smart… but I do got some quirks.  The humans who did adopt me loved me very much but, without meanin’ to be, I was a bit too much for them to handle.  I don’t wanna scare ya, ’cause I am a good boy!  I’m a Husky/Shepherd mix and I’m about 7 years old.  After I’ve been in a home for a bit, I feel it’s my job to be protective of my humans and my home, and even though I’m trying to do a good thing, I guess that makes it kinda hard on my humans if they have lots of people coming over.  So a quieter home without lots of visitors might be better for me. I am really, really affectionate, loyal, and sweet with adult humans I know. But I’ve gotta be the only pet in the home. I’m already house trained, and I’m good ’bout stayin’ in a kennel during the day.  I’m strong, too, but walk pretty good on a leash, and can walk with some other dogs, but they gotta respect my space bubble.  I’m just real happy the humans who had me brought me back here though, ’cause I know our humans will work hard to find an awesome match for me… someone who wouldn’t mind only havin’ one dog, and who’d work with me, and love me as I am.  I know I’d be a great dog companion for someone!

Time for me to go for a walk!

Bowie (Adopted!)

bowie6

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!

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

pennylane9

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!!

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!
