Dusty has a house guest

Meet Sunny, Dusty's house guest for the next few days. Sunny is staying with Dusty and me while her parents, Hedda and Shep, are traveling.

Sunny finds a happy place
Sunny stakes her claim to one of Dusty's several beds.
Sunny originally was set to stay with Michelle and Jerry at the Friends of Greyhounds residence in Sunrise. But with five Macau greyhounds arriving Wednesday and Michelle's previous commitment to take in David, Turtle and Honey for the week while Joy hit the road, I offered to take in Sunny to lighten the load.

Michelle and I picked up Sunny on Monday afternoon from her home in Boca Raton. The 8-year-old girl has adjusted beautifully already. She's found her favorite bed and discovered a great toy, a big squeaky fuzzy hedgehog, in Dusty's toy box. We worked on going up and down the stairway last night and this morning. She seemed to understand the concept, but it might take a little time for her to figure it out completely.

In the meantime, Jerry and Michelle are getting the kennels in the FoG garage ready for their five hounds from Macau. Michelle did learn some details about the dogs she will be picking up at Miami International Airport on Wednesday. All of them are seniors -- a 7-year-old, three 8-year-olds and a 9-year-old. She wrote a blog post a few days ago with details.

Michelle and Jerry are planning an open house for FoG adopters Saturday and Sunday. Come on out to FoG headquarters at 2621 NW 105th Lane in Sunrise between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day to meet the new arrivals. The weather's supposed to be beautiful both days. Bring your hound, and bring a chair to make sure you have a place to sit and relax.

None of the dogs are spoken for yet. Come out and meet them, see if you find a match. The dogs will be there for awhile. FoG will have them neutered and spayed before adopting them out but will need to wait a week or two for them to get settled before putting them on a vet's table.

Check back here in a couple of days. I plan to share some photos and videos of the dogs once they arrive.
