Grandma and Grandpa gave us money for our treat fund for Christmas. We are planning on buying bully sticks with it. The ones we like are out of stock right now.
Mama came home with a football from Petco today. She said she couldn't resist because it's very soft and it has a good squeaker. Scout and I both like it. I think it was supposed to come out of our treat fund, but I'm not going to remind her.
Be safe everyone and we will talk to you in 2012!
The Greyhound Who Is Very Happy To Be Ringing In The New Year With His Family
Friday, December 30, 2011
Oh, you are wondering about the ramp that is being put on the deck? Right now, it has a lot of steps. Scout won't do steps and I'm not supposed to because of my leg. Daddy is going to put a ramp on it so that we can just go from the kitchen to the deck to the fenced yard. Mama has to take us out the front door now and then to the fenced yard. Daddy is going to partition off the yard so that we don't have full access to the full yard unless they want us to have it. Daddy is worried that we might encounter a wild animal at night if we are allowed to go behind the shed, so that's why he is putting up a barrier for us.

The Greyhound Who Does Not Like Slumber Parties
Tuesday, December 27, 2011
My leg is sore after I ran in the house on Friday. Mama is upset with me, but sometimes a guy needs to let loose and I did. We think the screws from the plate pressed against my skin because I have two little marks on my foot and they are next to each other. Mama is anxious to get the plate out of my foot, but we have to wait at least another two months.

We played and played until we were exhausted. Here is a short video. It's not very exciting, but Mama said I look cute at the end when I smile at the camera.
Joey's First Christmas
We received bully sticks and other treats last week, so we really received a lot of things for my first Christmas with my forever family. It's been so much fun and Daddy is home for a while, so I'm very happy!

The Greyhound Who Needs His Daddy To Come Home
Monday, December 19, 2011
Cold ears won't kill me. I'm not wearing this thing. No, I am not cute in it. I look goofy! I don't care if it will look good with my coat. I don't like that thing either.
I tried to give it so Scout, but she doesn't want it either.
I bet Daddy will be on my side. He's not going to want to walk me if I'm wearing this. What? Daddy is out of town this week. :::sigh:::
The Greyhound Who Is Having A Tantrum Today
Sunday, December 18, 2011
Yesterday, Mama and Daddy went out to dinner and then to Petsmart. Mama said they were having a really good sale on toys. I think I saw some toys in the bags that Mama rushed past us. I'm not sure why she is buying things when Santa is coming. Daddy even fixed the door so that it's easier for Santa to come in the house.
Today, we went to the park. I had not been to this one before. We walked on the road and then a trail and then in a field and then back to the road.
The Greyhound Who Had A Fun Weekend
Friday, December 16, 2011
It's me, Scout, again. I'm sorry to bother you, but I just thought of some things that you need to know when visiting our house.
1) Our screen door is broke. On Wednesday, Mama didn't have it latched and the wind opened it and banged it against the house. It is now very hard to open and close it. Actually, opening it isn't that hard, but when you come into the house, please be sure to pull it closed. It takes a little muscle. When you leave the house, you may need to use your foot to get it to close. Mama has found that is the best way. Daddy may fix it this weekend and if he does, then you don't have to worry about it. However, if he doesn't fix it this weekend, it won't be fixed before Christmas because he's going to be out of town next week.
2) Joey sleeps in the living room. I don't want you to be scared when you come in and see him laying there. He won't hurt you. It takes him a little while to wake up. If he does wake up, the worst he will do is play with your fur and maybe try and squeak you. He did that to Mama the other day. If you see him looking like this with his tongue hanging out, he's okay. That's his normal look. He's been known to walk around with his tongue sticking out. It's very embarrassing.
Okay, I think that's all I need to tell you. I hope you find us Santa. It's Joey's first Christmas and he is very excited!
Have a safe flight Santa!
The Greyhound Who Loves Santa
Thursday, December 15, 2011
We participated this year in the Greytalk Christmas card exchange. We had a lot of fun sending out our cards and now we are enjoying receiving some in the mail. Each day, we go to the mailbox and see what we have received. We sniff each card. We really need to find a nice way to display them so that we can see each one.
A card arrived yesterday that we both went nuts over.
Halfway Home to Greyhound Companions of Missouri. We sent her a card but never expected to receive one back. She is extremely busy. We know that she has been very concerned about Joey and his leg. Mama said we should send her a card and show her how happy we both are and thankful that she helped us find our forever home. Her card made our day, as you can see. We hope we have not embarrassed her by showing it on our blog. Mama thought our reaction was too cute not to share.

The Greyhounds Who Are Thankful For Their Forever Home

My little brother and I saw you a few weeks ago and told you what we wanted for Christmas. Remember us? We want bully sticks and a few stuffies with super squeakers.
Santa, we will keep the light on for you!
Hugs and Kisses,

We need a little more time to decide who to pass it on to, so bare with us. If you haven't had a chance to check out Declan's blog, you should. He is a bright and funny guy. He's a lot like me.
Yesterday, we drove to the state park that we camped at over Halloween weekend. It was completely empty. It was still fun walking around though.
We then drove to another state park, but didn't get out of the car. Mama thought it would be too much for me since I'm still recovering. We then drove past their old house. Last year at this time, they were busy packing to move. A couple that they really liked happened to be outside and stopped them to talk. They did a double take when they saw me because they expected to see Jack. Mama told them that Jack had died and they were sad. (Yesterday was the six month anniversary of Jack's death.) Mama enjoyed talking to them and finding out the lastest gossip. I thought it was pretty boring. I like the car to be moving.
We are so tired after yesterday's adventure. We were gone for about five hours. We are going to catch up on our sleep today.
The Greyhound Who Is Very Tired Today
Friday, December 9, 2011
is not the same as this:
Mama put the glove on her hand and I started gently biting it like I do a stuffie. It didn't squeak, but she started laughing. The more I bit it, the more she laughed so it was somewhat like a squeaky toy. She laughed so hard that she bent over and Daddy had to tell me to stop. Mama said she almost wet her pants. YIKES! My stuffies never wet their pants. I would have felt bad if I made her spring a leak.

The Greyhound Who Likes To Chatter
Wednesday, December 7, 2011
I'm white with black and brown specks! Daddy thought Mama was crazy when she said I had more spots on my face at first, but he can't deny that I have specks on my back. Well, at first, he told her I needed a bath. She told him that I was not dirty! She said the new colors are because I'm living the good life here. Actually, she's been told by a few people it's because I'm eating a better grade of food and that's why my fur is bursting with new colors. I just keep getting cuter and cuter. LOL

The Greyhound Who Is Now A Sammy's Star!
Monday, December 5, 2011
We hung up our stockings. We don't have a fireplace, but took an idea from my sister, Bunny, and hung them on a shelf.
Burpdog Biscuits. She said they are so good! She and Jack had them when they visited Abilene a few years ago. They call them doggy crack on Greytalk because dogs go crazy over them. I don't think I will be able to wait for Christmas to eat some if they are that good. Did I tell you that I put my front feet on the kitchen counter when our Christmas cards arrived? I thought it had to be a package for me. I got in trouble. I have to be better because Santa is watching and I'm still supposed to be careful with my leg.
Oh, Mama said to say thanks to Mary for telling us about the injured eagle. The report yesterday sounded good, but they are doing more tests on her. You my remember that the Mom to the eagles was killed last year, well, the father has a new mate so hopefully there will be more eaglets this year.
