Letters from My Forever Home!
Sorry it's taken so long to write about what's been going on with me since leaving the Coldwater Mens Correction Facility in Michigan after graduating last year as a cell dog. It's been a very busy year. I went into an adoption group, was fostered for a few weeks and then adopted on Sept 26, 2008. My new person tweeked my name to Vesta because she thought it sounded more girlie than Vestor. I like it.
Although I am a single hound in a home with a single person, I have lots of chances to express my social personality. My person takes me everywhere. We walk to the bank (where I get treats) & to the car dealer when our car needs oil changes. I've visited the hair salon (where everyone thinks I'm too cute), the farmers market (treats again). I also liked going to the retirement home where my person's mom used to live. I got lots of attention & pets there. My person & I do a greyhound meet & greet once a month at a Petsmart store and this coming Feb. my person is doing a presentation on ex-racing greyhounds at our local library. Of course I will be the star of the show!
I have kept up with the commands I was taught Coldwater. I sit extremely well, especially if I think I'll get a treat. I have soft dog beds in the house to nap in and lots of toys. Last fall when I came to live here I used to be OBSESSED with the squirrels in my yard. I would chase them & make them run up the tree or the fence. Now I really can't be bothered too much with the silly creatures, and just watch them from the patio. But I do LOVE to run around in my fenced yard like a crazy dog with my stuffy toy in my mouth.
My person is so thankful for all the care and kindness shown me after I left the racetrack. She especially wants to thank my buddies Jim and Cruz at Coldwater, who helped me become a special greyhound ready for my forever home. I am very happy (not to mention, a little spoiled). Here are some pictures of me.
Vesta and my person Bev
(PS - hope this gets to the right person because the email address I had didn't work)
