Jet cleared for take off!

Jet to Tower...I'm prepared to take off and land in my new home! Yes, everyone, I have taken off and landed in my new home with Kristen and Kevin. I've already trained them to pet my belly and hug me and take me in the car. I don't think I have a lot of training to do. Fortunately, they had a greyhound before. They sadly lost their greyhound last week, but they saw me and just had to have me! (Of course, who wouldn't want me). I cleared them to take me when they came in and fed me homemade cookies and told me they would take me for hikes and long walks. I even took my big, soft, cuddly bed with me. Life is good and I am sure I am going to be very happy. Jet coming into the gate and parking myself in my forever home!

The things an old man taught me...

Guess what!! Last night I overheard my foster mom on the phone. I think someone wants me!!! They are going to come take me home on Sunday. Well, they are going to come meet me on Sunday and I am sure they won't be able to resist me. I am adorable, you know. So last night, Bettis and I laid down (he is the old guy in the front) and had a little chat about what it is to be a pet greyhound. He said he was a lot like me years ago. After his chat, I think I get it now!!! He told me to enjoy the time I am young, so I started doing that. I run around and test out everything. You would not believe the amount of things you can play with in the world!! Then, he told me to trust my humans. They won't hurt me!! He is right!! So, I now have a confidence like you would not believe. Then, he told me to take my time going up the stairs. So, I slowed down and took my time and guess what...I am an expert at the stairs, now! You know, for an old guy, Bettis is not too bad even though he does take some of my attention away. My foster mom says I am a totally different pup than what arrived at their house on Sunday. I am confident, assured, and acting like a puppy should act! She also said I am an attention hound. I think she may need some glasses, because I am definitely a greyhound!! I'll let you know how it goes on Sunday. I am thinking about getting my nails done for the occasion! What do you think?

My Favorite Things...By EF Jet Commander

Hi there, it's Jet again. So, I have been hanging out in a house for a few days now and I have developed some things I really like and don't like. Here they are in no particular order: 1. My big, soft, fluffy bed. It is my little dream cloud. Which brings me to number 2. Naps in my big, soft, fluffy bed. 3. Waking up and eating! 4. Going for walks. There are so many fun things to do and smell! 5. Okay, this one I have to place as number one...BELLY RUBS!!! This would bring me to my number one dislike: 1. Rolling over to get my belly rubbed and falling off my big, fluffy, soft bed. 2. NOT getting my belly rubbed 3. Not getting to eat, and 4. My people leaving me.

So, these are a few of my favorite and not so favorite things. If you have any interests like mine, feel free to give me (okay, my foster mom) an email or a call and chat about me. I've heard her, she really likes to talk about me and how I wiggle my whole body when she comes home from work!!! Better get going...other people need a computer around here!!

Is that a bird, is that a plane...No silly, it is just Jet!

Excuse me if I am just a bit shy, but I just flew in here from an overnight stint at a friend's house. My name is Jet and I will be 2 years old in May. Yes, I am kind of young and I never saw the track. That doesn't make me any less appreciative of my foster home. It is much better than the farm and dog runs I used to hang out in. I am still trying to figure out the funny things in this place they call a house. It is all so new and I am a little shy when it comes to new things. My foster mom is being patient with me and she says it is okay that I don't know everything yet, but pretty soon I will trust humans and realize no one is going to hurt me.
So, see the basket of toys behind me in this picture. Well, just a little while ago, I learned that they are for me to play with and that if I bite them hard enough they squeak. OOOOOOO what fun it is to pull them all out and play with them!!! I also get to go outside in a yard and play a lot. I have to share the yard with my foster brother, but he is okay. He is teaching me how to share and get along with old guys. He also helped me learn how to go up steps. I really don't like the steps much, but I learned how to go up and down so that I can go outside. I even go up and down them by myself now. They say I am house broken, but I don't think I broke anything. I have not had a single accident in the house and I love my people. When my person walks into a room, I wag my tail. If my person leaves me, I go find them. It is so nice to be loved. I am told that this is just where I learn how to be a good pet, but someone will take me so I don't have to go back to the farm. Thank goodness because to me that would be Jet taking a crash landing!!! I am hoping to fly right into someone's heart and have them take me away to a home where I can be loved. I think I would like to have another greyhound with me, but that is optional. I also don't mind if there are small furry critters like cats in my house as long as there is enough love to go around. My foster mom says I am the laziest puppy she has ever met. She may be right because it is time for me to go for another "refueling". I'll chat more once I wake up!
