We were surprised that we had TV reception at the campground, so we were able to watch the Cardinals win the World Series! It was so exciting!
Saturday, we walked around the campground and looked at everyone's decorations. They really go all out with the decorating. Daddy decorated our camper with a few lights. There are pumpkins and ghosts.

We are going camping tonight, so we will have to listen to the game on the radio. There will probably be people watching the game via satellite and we may be able to watch on their outdoor sets. I bet it's a fun and noisy night at the campground.
Last night something else exciting happened. We all went outside for a quick walk before the game. Mama had Scout and Daddy had me. Mama and Scout saw something on the ground. She just saw two eyes and before it registered what it was, Scout saw it. It was a bunny. The bunny was almost flat to the ground. The bunny took off and Scout took off, but Mama had her on the leash. Scout went so fast that she jerked Mama around fast. Mama held on and Scout didn't escape. Daddy said it was a good thing it wasn't me that did that because I could have gotten hurt. It sure was exciting though.
I will be away from the computer for a few days while we camp. I will update you on my camping adventures when we return.
The Greyhound Who Is So Excited About Camping
Thursday, October 27, 2011
Mama has been really busy with work this week and she is stressing. She said next week will be even worse. YIKES! I'm being a good boy though and not giving her any problems.
The Greyhound Who Is Resting Up For A Camping Weekend
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
Mama says I am coming out of my shell. I didn't know I was in a shell. She said my personality is really coming out now. I've been here three months, but I spent ten days in the hospital and I still think it's my other home because I visit there so often. It's a nice place, but I like living here better.
When Mama gets her keys out, I bark. Apparently, that's a no-no. I also like to nip her in the butt when she has her keys out. That is also a no-no. Jack used to goose her, so I need my own style, but nipping in the butt apparently is not good. I thinks it's funny because she squeaks when I do it.
I no longer whine when I squeak my toys. I just squeak them. It's fun!
The Greyhound Who Loves His Life
Monday, October 24, 2011
Sunday, we went to the park to do my physical therapy. We drove like 20 minutes each way for me to walk five minutes. Humans are silly, but I did enjoy seeing all the squirrels and meeting the campers at the park. We came home and watched the Rams loose and then the Cardinals also lost. It was a sad day in our sports world.
The Greyhound Who Is No Longer The Casted One, He's Now The Bandaged One

The Greyhound Who Exchanged His Cast For A Bandage
It's me, Scout. I know it's been a long time since I've been at the keyboard. Joey is busy getting ready for his vet visit, so I thought I would share a few photos with you.
We have beautiful sunsets here. We couldn't see the sunsets at our old house because we had woods all around us. We have a big field across the road from us and a pretty good view for the sunsets. Here are photos from last night.
The Greyhound Who Is Ready To Play With Joey!
Friday, October 21, 2011
Scout and I are ready to play, but Mama said I may still have restrictions. She said she will be nervous when I'm finally allowed to run. I don't know why. I'm an excellent runner.
The Greyhound Who Hopes He Looses His Cast Tomorrow
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Hi everyone! It's me, Joey. I said it right today. LOL The world series starts tonight and the St. Louis Cardinals are playing. That's my team! I didn't even know about baseball until recently. I've been wearing my ID tag with the Cardinal logo on it and I think it's bringing them good luck.
Mama ordered me the Cardinal ID tag because she said when she sees the Cardinal logo, it reminds her of her Dad. I never met him because he died suddenly in 1987. Mama said she has a lot of memories of the Cardinals and her Dad. She said that she remembers when they signed Ozzie Smith and her Dad said that he heard he was a good player. Yep, he was. She also remembers him saying that they sent Kenny Reitz to running school. She never knew if that was really true, but she remembers him saying that and there is not a season that goes by that she doesn't think about it.
Mama said to say that her nose is fine today, but it hurt for a few hours yesterday. She told Daddy about it and he laughed. He's away on business this week.
Mama turned on her Wii Fit last night. I had not seen that thing before and it's wild. Mama was flapping like a bird and Scout and I thought she was wanting to pet us. Mama does some silly things, that is for sure.
Three more days and my cast comes off ..... I hope. I'm ready. I'm able to do steps now without the sling. I'm no longer on any medication. I've been on medication since August, so that's quite a change in our routine. Scout really tried to get me to play yesterday, but I didn't. She was barking at me, but I was a good boy. I need to wait until my cast comes off and I may need to wait even longer after that. I don't know what my restrictions will be, but I will know soon.

The Greyhound Who Is A Good Kicker
Saturday, October 15, 2011
It's me Jooeey! I'm back from my first vacation. It was fun! We went trout fishing, but I never saw any trout. Daddy fished and Scout and I stayed behind with Mama. I spent the mornings looking out the windows of the RV and whining every time I saw a dog. Yep, it was fun. Scout and I laid outside for a while, but there were bees and flies. I don't like bees or flies.
Grandma and Grandpa came to visit us Monday - Wednesday. Daddy and Grandpa fished. Grandpa caught two rocks, two dead fish and I think one or two live fish. It's a good thing we brought other food along for dinner. LOL Daddy did much better, but he didn't keep any of the fish.
We stayed at this place called Bennett Springs. Scout has been there several times and there were two people who remembered her and Jack from last year.
On Thursday, we took a car trip to Ha Ha Tonka. It's a place that Mama loves. I got to walk on a trail, but not very far because of my leg. Next year, we are going back and I'm going to walk the whole trail because I found that trail walking is FUN! There is a beautiful lake there and we walked along it. We have no pictures because our camera battery went dead. :::sigh:::
Here are some pictures from our trip.
We brought our bully sticks along.
Me, looking cute.
Scout doing what Scout does. She had a fun trip because the weather was cool and we didn't walk a lot.
Scout and I napping.
Me and Daddy talking to two men about greyhounds and racing.Two turkey vultures. They are all over waiting to catch their own trout. Me and Daddy walking.
Thursday night, Mama and Daddy decided to go to the lodge to eat dinner. I didn't want to go in my crate. Mama said I had to go in my crate. Well, you should have seen Mama's face when Scout and I greeted her at the door when she returned. Yep, I escaped from my crate and to even protest more, I took my sock off. Mama and Daddy were both shocked. LOL Guess what? I haven't been zipped in my crate since. I think my crate days are over! Mama says we will see since I still have a cast on my leg, but the past two nights, I have slept in my crate, but I haven't been zipped in. I'm being a good boy.
We were sad to have our vacation come to an end, but we are excited about next week. Do you know why? Next Saturday, I'm getting my cast off! I think Mama is even more excited than I am.
The Greyhound Who Thinks Vacations Are Fun!
Saturday, October 8, 2011
It came with the skull bandana which doesn't make sense, but it works good for my outfit. Mama has a pumpkin bandana for Scout to wear, so it all works out. Mama almost bought her a witch hat, but decided that would be mean.
Mama saw our greyhound friends, Blue and Dave at the Petsmart along with their Mom. Dave tried on our hats to make sure they would fit us. We couldn't go since I have a cast on my leg. Mama can't lift me in and out of the Jeep.
This afternoon has been spent packing up the RV for our trip. I don't know why it takes them so long to do it. My frog it packed along with my meds and I'm ready to go.
We won't have Internet service, so I won't be able to tell you about our trip until we get back home.
The Greyhound Who Is Going On Vacation!
Friday, October 7, 2011
I don't know why she doesn't want to see new things, but she doesn't.
Mama is going grocery shopping today for our trip. She has decided to take her E-mealz plan camping with us for three of the meals. She thinks that will be easier than planning the meals which end up being the same thing when we camp. She is still loving this E-mealz plan. She loves not having to plan the meals and the food is different all the time. My food is the same, but apparently, she and Daddy get new things every night.
I think I'm going to like camping food this time. I ate a hot dog the other day and I liked it!
The Greyhound Who Is Going On Vacation Soon!
Thursday, October 6, 2011
It's me, Joey. I cannot believe that Scout told you about my gas problem. It's not my fault. It's that medicine. :::sigh::: Scout even emailed Grandma about it yesterday. Well, I have good news. My problem has improved and it's not nearly as bad as it was previously. Mama even said it's not that bad any more.
I have other good news. My sores are looking much better. Mama is very happy about that. She still thinks I will need to stay quiet next week, but at least my foot is healing.
Yesterday, the big brown truck pulled in our driveway and left us a surprise. It was a box from Best Bully's Sticks. Yummy! Mama ordered us some big bully sticks along with some curly bully sticks. Scout and I chewed and chewed and chewed last night. It's a fun way to spend the evening. We are already chewing again this morning. The bully sticks were big when we started on them. Mama said she might order us elk antlers the next time. That sounds interesting.
The Greyhound Who Thinks Some Things Should Be Left Private, Scout
Wednesday, October 5, 2011
My brother stinks and I mean he literally stinks. The antibiotics are giving him the worse gas ever! He can be three rooms away and we still smell him. I woke Mama up at 3 a.m. to check on him because he was zipped up in his crate and I was scared he couldn't breathe with that smell. I actually thought maybe he had an accident in his crate. Yes, it was that bad. Mama unzipped him and he was fine. Mama turned the fan on and that helped clear the room. Can you imagine being trapped in the RV with him next week? I wonder if I should warn Grandma about it. She is spending a few days with us. She may want to cancel her reservations. LOL
Mama made us some pumpkin frosty treats hoping that would help since they have yogurt in them, but he still stinks. Daddy doesn't seem to smell him and Joey doesn't seem to care. Boys are just different from us girls, I guess.
Good news! Joey's sores are getting better! Mama was quite pleased when she checked them this morning. Thank you for all your suggestions. It appears we are on the right track.
Joey is definitely feeling good. He wanted to play with me this morning and we got a quick zoom in and then Joey made a mistake and zoomed into his crate and ZIP, he got zipped inside. Two and half more weeks and we should be able to play!
The Greyhound Who Has a Stinky Brother
Tuesday, October 4, 2011
Mama is really concerned about my cast sores. She stayed up last night researching them on the Internet and basically found out that they can take a long time to heal. Our vet is off today, but she may call him tomorrow to ask more questions. Has anyone had experience with them? Our vet said to put Neosporin on them. We are doing that three times a day and after we do that, we but a little gauze on them so that my cast does not get damp from the Neosporin. The sores are under the cast, but the vet left a space so that they could be treated. Mama then puts a sock on me so that I don't lick the area. Yesterday afternoon, Mama took the sock off so that my sores could get some air, but overnight, I have to wear the sock. This morning, the sores do look a little better. Mama just doesn't know if they will actually heal while the cast is still on because the cast does seem to rub them a little when I walk even though she tries to keep gauze on the sores. The gauze falls out. So, that's the reason I need to stay quiet, so that my sores can heal. I'm on antibiotics.
Mama is having computer problems. We can't get the pictures on the blog to move around the way we want. :::sigh::: We can no longer use our favorite browser, Firefox. She tried to download other browsers and they will not open. We are not sure what has happened, but something changed on our computer on Friday. Our computer is old. We have a Windows XP. We have to use Internet Explorer now and it is so slow. Mama is a frustrated Mama these days. We have a laptop, but the space bar sticks so typing on it is a real pain. She has tried to fix it, but it still sticks. It's a good thing we are going on vacation soon.
