I've been a bad, bad, blogger

We have had a new house guest for a whole week already and I am just now getting around to posting about it. (100 lashes with a wet noodle are definitely in order),
Of course, those of you on Facebook have already seen these videos/ pictures. Somehow a quick post to my Facebook Wall has just seemed easier than trying to put together a coherent Blog post lately, sorry.
So coherent or not, without further ado...
Introducing Kiowa Talk Mystic (aka Mackey).
This is a short, no-fail, type foster, because he already has a family who is excited about adopting him after July 4th.
I guess it is a good thing, since there are an awful lot of people over here, who would be tempted to foster fail with this fellow. In fact, there is still talk of hiding him in the closet when the time comes to deliver him.

He picked up the idea of fetch almost immediately:

And he did wonderfully at the dog park even though it was really busy with dogs of all shapes and sizes. (Yes, that is another greyhound you spy in the mix- our friends Harper and Sara came to the park to play too.)

The one thing he has been less good about is the "no fosters on the furniture" rule. Check out his
very slow "woe is me" walk when he is removed from the sofa.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all the service men and women who defend our country and this very precious thing called freedom. Happy July 4th, one and all !!!!!!!

You have the perfect excuse for your absence. I don't think any of us are complaining!

As many fosters have rolled through my house, we've only foster failed once. Not that we haven't thought about several times :)
