What do we call this dog?

Mcbride? McNugget? McGriddle? McBrindle? I really don't know what to call this dog, officially named McBride. She is a little on the small side so McNugget fits her, but she is also a beautiful brindle dog, so McBrindle also works. Either way, this is turning out to be a fun fostering experience. McGriddle taught herself the stairs on her first full day here and she has acclimated as if she were a resident hound. McNugget sleeps with the family in our room at night and knows the morning routine....alarm goes off, jumps on foster dad, runs downstairs, chows down her breakfast, goes outside to do her business, comes inside and back to sleep. Good dog. She has the run of the house and we don't worry about her...with the small exception of the library book that she ate when she got her muzzle off while we were out. I guess the dog really did eat our homework. How did that happen? Beats me. She is a smart one. McBrindle is a very friendly, confident, relaxed for her age hound and she is a welcome guest at the Hound Hotel. She will make a terrific addition to someone's family. Would you like to have a McNugget in your home? Please contact Denise Davis if you would like to meet McBrindle.

McBride has arrived!

Our newest foster greyhound, McBride, arrived today. We have spent the afternoon with her and are very impressed with her. She passed her first two foster tests with flying colors...drinking water and eating. Fosters are often stressed and we have to be careful to make sure they are getting water. That has been no problem for McBride. She found the water bowl right away and has been drinking steadily all afternoon. Next is food. New fosters are often too stressed to eat well. Again not a problem for McBride. She ate her dinner like a horse. That says a lot about her. She is a confident, well adjusted greyhound that is acclimating to her new environment very well. She is very friendly and curious and she wants to check everything out. She has already counter surfed a couple of times, as any good greyhound will do! She is a good one and we will post updates as we learn more about her. As for now, I think I will hang out with her as she is sacked out on her doggie bed. If you would like to meet McBride, please contact Denise Davis.
