A Birthday Wish Come True

As you can see, I am the happiest girl in the world. Tomorrow is my birthday (I am turning 2 years old), and my birthday wish has already come true. I have found my forever home :-) My foster parents are now my parents! Apparently, all of my parents' friends said there was no way my parents could foster me without adopting me and they were right! I do plan on helping my parents foster another dog, and this time we will actually just foster. So the next blog will be written by the next foster dog. I will just give tips to the new dog on how to pose pretty for pictures. Oh yeah, I will always keep my racing name Mighty Mite, but my everyday name is now Emma. I like my new name, especially because it has two letter 'm's for Mighty Mite.

Greyt Playdate

Mighty Mite here. I just returned from a very fun and very exhausting playdate with two really sweet big boy greys - Bettis and Myokie. My foster parents were so proud of me at the playdate. Introductions and romping in the yard went well. After a little while, I fell asleep while the other playdate participants enjoyed chatting and hanging out on the deck.

Mighty Mite Day 3

Mighty Mite checking in. Today I really enjoyed relaxing in the shade under a big tree. There is nothing like a warm summer breeze carrying great smells through the air and I do not have to move to sniff all of the scents. Several neighborhood kids dropped by for a visit and I was so grateful for all of the attention. I really enjoyed romping in the yard with them. I had plenty of kisses to go around. Today I also met a couple of non-greyhound dogs, and apparently I have to work on my manners a bit. I am eager to please, so I am going to work very hard. I am getting ready for my nightly walk now, which I am very good at. What a greyt way to end the weekend.

Mighty Mite Day 1 & 2

Hi, my name is DC Mighty Mite. I am full of kisses when I meet new people, and I think my foster parents fell in love with me from the first second they met me. Late Friday afternoon, I happily hopped into their car and they took me on a nice ride to my foster home. I may be small enough to sit in the front seat but the back gave me plenty of room to stretch out. I really enjoyed the wind in my face from the two open windows. When we arrived at my new foster home, I ran in my fenced in backyard and sniffed all of the new smells. Within less than 48 hours, I was able to navigate longs stairways (up and down) one step at a time. At first I skipped multiple steps which scared my foster Mom and Dad, but they worked with me and now I am a one step at a time girl. I am really excited to play with the many, many stuffies I found both upstairs and downstairs. I have so many, I try a new one each time. Oh yeah, I also found a bone with some sort of peanut butter inside I enjoy chewing on. The most startling thing I discovered was something called a 'mirror' which seemed to have dog in it that I couldn't get to. I was told that was just my reflection, but I am not sure I believe it yet. One more thing about me, I enjoy lots of affection and give plenty also.
