Two Month Gotcha Day!

I have been in my forever home for 2 months now.  Dad said it seems like forever.  I am not sure if that is good or bad.  I still remember my old life but I don't think about it much.  Mom tells me when my old kennel friends like Batman and Ghost find their forever homes.  I perk up and listen to that.

I have a job now.  I am the mail and small package carrier for Mom.  The mail lady took my photo yesterday because she said I was so darn cute.

My first time.

In the elevator.




I carried a stick for Dad on the beach for about a half-mile.  Mom said I couldn't bring it home, so I found a pile of sticks on the beach and just left it there.



I enjoy spending time at the beach but I don't love it like Joey did.  I only like going when both my folks go with me.




I have taken a few trips to Petsmart.  I enjoy looking at all the toys and bones.  I tried to take a bone but Mom made me return it.  She said it was too small for me. The cashier fell in love with me and gave me lots of treats.

I am learning some "tricks".  I know "down" and "sit" and "stay" but only if treats are involved.  I also can climb up the scary stairs in our building.  Mom is very proud of me because of that.  I could always go down which is important in emergencies but now I can go up which is important if the elevators are out. She tried to teach me when I first arrived here and she had to help me with every step.  Earlier this week, she said she wanted me to try it again and I just did it.  It is no big deal now.


Oh, Mom heard that Joey's photo is going to be in the 2020 Celebrating Greyhound Calendar.  We will post the photo when we receive our copy.


Have a nice day everyone!

  1. It sounds like you are having lots of fun in your forever home Jaxson. How nice that you have a special job too. We like it when packages come to our house but Walter's job is to destroy the packaging. He especially likes it when they come with that long piece of brown paper. It's fun to run through the house with it trailing behind and then rip it to shreds. That also give our pawrents some exercise while cleaning it up. BOL! Those stairs do look a bit scary. You could fall right through those holes!

  2. I am not allowed to tear up the packages but that does sound fun!

    Yes, the steps are very scary. Mom hangs on to me just in case I start to slip. We live on the second floor, so I only have to go up two sets of the stairs. I think it would be really scary if we were higher up.
