|One of these hounds is chill and one is not.|
Michelle was happy to see us walk through the door. She had just picked up her phone to call me for some help. Stormy was in the house, and the rambunctious 3-year-old girl was giving Michelle all she could handle.
Stormy was not being shy. This is a female with a big personality, and she was showing off every bit of it. She was jumping and twisting and exploring and commanding attention pretty much the entire time. Michelle told me she had to tighten up the martingale collar on her because Stormy pulled herself free at one point.
Here's a quick look at the black tornado:
And she didn't slow down for most of the two hours I was there.
Annie, though, might end up being the winner of the day. The little red fawn who was returned to FoG a couple of days ago with a urinary-track infection was feeling quite a bit better today. She was pretty laid-back and happy today, and she claimed the heart of a customer who told us she grew up with rescue greyhounds.
She took a FoG flyer with her and said she's going to tell her husband about Annie. That happens a bit at these events, so it's far from a done deal. But it was obvious to me that the woman was smitten.
FoG has nothing coming up on the calendar. But I want to give a plug to another group, Good Karma Pet Rescue, a fostering organization in Fort Lauderdale. I haven't talked with anyone yet from Good Karma, but I got on its mailing list and have been keeping an eye on them on Facebook. And I like what they're doing.
Good Karma will be at a Pet Supermarket near downtown Fort Lauderdale on Sunday afternoon, and I'm thinking Dusty and I will head over there at some point to introduce ourselves. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by. The address is 801 E. Sunrise Blvd. Good Karma is scheduled to be there noon-3 p.m.
