Honey has been here for a day and you would think that she has been here for a few weeks already. Honey is acclimating so well to her foster home and is exceeding our expectations. The fact that she is four years old has a lot to do with that. She is a little more mature than your typical track dog, which makes the transition a lot easier. She taught herself to go up and down the stairs today, and is now following us all around the house. We have removed the barriers blocking much of the house, giving her complete access to the whole Hound Hotel. She isn't the destructive type, so we feel confident letting her walk around when she wants to. Having said that, she sticks to us like glue most of the time and can be found laying by our side most of time. She is also a very affectionate hound and likes her pets a lot, but knows when enough is enough. Honey is a very well balanced hound and she will be a terrific addition to someone's family. She is definitely worth a serious look if you are in the market for a greyhound. Please contact Denise Davis is you would like to meet her.

First, we should apologize for not updating the progress on our previous foster dog, Wasp. She got adopted at the annual picnic and is living happily ever after. We had gotten a little lax about updating the blog, but we will try to do better.
UMR Honey Cone arrived today at the Hound Hotel. We have been in the fostering business for a long time now, and have developed an intuition as to how the foster dogs will work out. Honey Cone is going to rank towards the top of the foster list. She is a four year old female that is pretty calm, very friendly, and very well balanced. She has some maturity to her so there is no puppy left in her. She isn't inclined to chew anything or destroy anything. She came in, checked out the house, and then took a spot on a doggie bed and took a nap. She ate all her food and has been drinking from the water bowl, and is showing very few signs of stress. That is terrific for a dog that has only been here for a few hours. We are already getting some tail wags out of her and she seems to be a very affectionate hound. She is a terrific, low maintenence hound that will be a terrific companion for her future family. She seems to have the right balance of energy and mellowness. She will love to go for walks and meet all the neighbors, but she isn't a wild child at all. She will allow her future family to experience the joy of having a greyhound right away with a very short transition period. She would make a great dog for a first time greyhound owner.
