Nice enough for a game....

of Fetch outside!

Hey everybody, Squashy here again to share a short vid of me yesterday in the yard. Can you believe this beautiful weather? Foster mom made fun of me because I was panting after our daily walk and it was only 60 degrees. She teases me and says I will melt this summer.
Anyroo, I am not a hyper hound and rarely run around the yard, but foster mom got the tennis balls out (they are always hidden because she says I like to eat tennis balls -yes the whole thing- if left unsupervised) and I had a short fetching session.
Hope you all are enjoying a beautiful week, I love seeing all the people out!

Later folks.

Another Greyhound

Hello blog fanz! Squash here doing a post for foster mom since she has been bad with updates.

I have been doing well. I have been here awhile now so I know everything a young stud like myself needs to know to get everything his way (shhhhh, don't tell foster mom!). We go for a walk mostly every day. Some days we go longer when it is warmer. I get super excited when I see another dog and sometimes I bark to tell 'em what is up.
Otherwise I am awesome on leash while I check out the pee mail. I love van rides, we go for rides often and I like to stand and stare out the window to recon for squirrels. I get super excited for food and treat time; I am happy to report I get two meals and three treat times a day, yummmmy! Is that a lot or a little? Hopefully, my forever mom/dad feeds me more because one can never eat too much :)

Anyrooo, this past week we had another greyhound in the house! He is called Arrow and is from NLGA as well(adopted 3 years ago). His mama goes off on vacations and leaves him here a few times a year. He is pretty cool and we got along great. He is more hyper than me and would try to get me to play chase, but I rarely did. Foster mom says I am very calm and mature for my age.

Well it is almost time for my nightly stuffed frozen kong, see you later folks, hope you all have a great weekend!

Some pics from this week:

Happy Birthday Squash!

Happy 3rd Birthday to Squash and his litter mates!

Tortured with the birthday hat!
Squash Bday

I think Squash is really enjoying his birthday. He had a salmon cake with pumpkin icing topped with dried salmon 'candles'. It was warm today so we went on a longer walk than usual. I got him a JW Megalast Gummy Bear(makers of the Cuz) and he totally destroyed that in minutes, lol! I also got him a cow trachea chew, but that is for later :)

Squash enjoying his cake, yummy!

It is so difficult to find a squeaky toy that lasts. Sqaush is really tough on toys, and just like my weims, stuffies are murdered instantly. Thankfully, the Cuz holds up pretty well. The squeaker usually lasts for about two weeks. I always cut off the feet before giving it to them because it could cause blockages if ingested. Some folks get annoyed by the loud squeaks, but I'm happy to give them something safe and fun to enjoy.

Squash playing with the cuz. You can see him licking his lips in the first couple seconds, I think he thought I was giving him a treat!

Squash celebrates his 3rd birthday next week on the 31st! I've got a cake and gifts planned for him :)

3 Months

squash bw

First of all, sorry for the lack of posts. Squash and I hope you all are having a greyt 2012.
Squash is doing wonderful. He has adjusted to our 7 A.M. wake up time :)
He is such a huge food hound and would often bark if I am too slow at preparing and delivering his kibble (he is like most dogs, they think humans are constantly starving them!).

Squash had to make a vet visit last week. We had a friend come over last week so I quickly put him in the backyard because the thought of escaped greyhounds is always in the back of my mind. He must of gotten himself overly excited and ended up hurting his back (I didn't witness how though). He was limping a little that night, but much more the next day so I decided to bring him in. They x-rayed his back and gave him a pain killer for a week. Thankfully, he is back to normal now. Squash is usually not a very active or hyper dog. He does the usual 5 min play session a couple times a day. He doesn't even really run in the yard, just a celebratory short jog after a poop.
Squash is a very sociable hound and gets a little excited when meeting new visitors. But after a few minutes he relaxes. He is always happy to get loved on and wants to be in the same room. He likes to come and check up on me if I leave the room for too long.
Squash has a greyt personality. He is happy and engaged, is easily correctable with a firm no but is not a spook. Squash is practically perfect... :o)
