Making New Friends

Bunny here with a little tale about a fun walk I took this week.

Some of you may be groaning a bit to yourselves and thinking "not another story about a walk."  This walk was a little special for me.  First off, Mom and I got in the car first and drove for a while to get to a  park.  We got out and waited in the shade for a little bit and then this lady showed up and got out with two other greyhounds!

For those of you who don't know, I have been looking all over for some greyhound friends to get together with.  We know that other greyhounds live in this area, but we can't seem to find any of them to meet up with.  The other day, Mom posted on a greyhound forum that we visit sometimes and found out that there was a lady with a pair of greyhounds who was willing to meet with us.  They even live in the city near us!  I immediately began doing the happy dance when I heard the news.
Because her greyhounds haven't been out and met other greyhounds since she adopted them, she wanted to go for a walk first instead of meeting at the dog park.  She was afraid her girls wouldn't be nice.  However, I thought that Tickertape and McCarthy were very nice.  Although I had a few reservations about all the kisses McCarthy was giving my mom.  Still, it was so nice to go for a stroll with some other greyhounds.  I heard that Tickertape really likes to run.  I let her know that I do, too!

We walked around the shady park and got to know each other.  Then we sat and rested for a while.  Some people that the lady knew came by and talked to us for a while.  They all seemed to really like me.  I do love it when people want to fuss over me and pet me.

It was a lovely day in the park.  Sadly, it was over all too soon for me.  The good news is that we might get to meet again at the dog park.  I think that will be even more fun.  All the excitement from the walk really wore me out, though!  McCarthy and Tickertape's mom hopes to meet Blueberry next time, so I think it will be a very exciting day.

    pee s -- my big sis asa is going totally gaga over that snuggle ball. she told mama that's the one she wants. heehee.

  22. That sounds like fun. I like to meet up with new friends, too. Emmy is always up for meeting people or dogs, even cats. Oscar, well, he is not very sociable. He bites, you know. Bit me once, that was enough for me. I am okay with him being in cahrge of us dogs. Gramma says that I am just a fun loving guy. Yep, that's me.

  23. Hooray for new friends! As long as they are not TOO friendly with your mom ... ;-)

  24. I'm a new follower of the Saturday Pet Blogger follow, please follow me back.
    Thanks, Mr. Monkey

  25. I love that story!!! I will also love it if and when you venture into my neighborhood!!!

    wif love from the Luke

  26. Glad you found some friends nearby. I need some pals too. Mom will have to find me some!

  27. Bunny, I am so glad you had the opportunity to meet some new furiends!

    BTW, it looks like you are able to tolerate the heat a lot easier than McCarthy and Tickertape...

  28. Dear Bunny,
    It's very cool to get to be with our own kind, isn't it?! You all look so lovely. Have a great weekend.

  30. Bunny-

    Looks like you had a good time making new friends!


  31. It is always nice to make new furiends, and we are so glad you stopped by our blog and left a comment. McCarthy and Tickertape look like two nice pups and we bet you will all have a lot of fun at the park.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  32. Your mom was right to introduce your new friends on leash first. I hope that now that they know you that you will meet up at the park for some exciting greyhound running about. Would be good to have another doggie or two who can keep up with you.


  33. Nice to know that you made new greyhound furiends... MacCarthy and Tickertape look real nice and hopefully it's gonna be regular playmates at the park.

    Licks, hero

  34. oh, miss bunny! i had to come back and thank you for givin' me the heads up about ben franklin! we went right over to mr. luke's page. i am just so so excited for mama's getting a little happy teary, too. :)))
    happy father's day to your daddy!

  35. Hooray! I'm glad you got to meet some new friends! That was furry smart to go fur a walk together first since she didn't know how they would act at the dogpark. :-)


  36. I LOVE your stories. You are such a good storyteller. I feel like I was right there with you! I'm so happy you met some new friends! People who rescue greyhounds are kindred souls. :)

  37. So glad you have some playmates to schedule playdates with now! More fun than playing with just the family members.


We love hearing your comments!
