Welcome Calamari

We got the call to pick up our first Foster Greyhound early Saturday morning.  So Excited to help out!

When we got there, Calamari was reserved and much more interested in his reflection in the car than anything else.  But, that didn't take long to change.

This is Calamari:  Gorgeous Red Brindle Boy

It's been about 48 hours now and he's come a long way into getting used to living in a house. 

Calamari found his first stuffy very quickly and if it squeaks the better it is. 

He learned the stairs in the first couple hours.  Going up was not an issue, coming down took a little nudge.  Now he's a pro.

He's figured out where the humans keep the treat jar and understands the kitchen is the place where all the food is kept.  He's really interested in the cold box that holds food because it smells so YUMMY in there and what the humans call the toaster oven.  He's learning not to counter surf with either his nose or even is front legs. 

The first sit down dinner was interesting, but once the little humans figured out to ingore him, he finally decided to lay down--but laid down in the kitchen to keep an eye on everything.

Calamari is fantastic on the leash and could walk forever checking out all the people, neighbor dogs and even the squirels and rabbits along the walking path.

We had a bad thunderstorm last night and Calamari was unfazed, while Ziggy hid.

I think he's starting to relax and enjoy the retired life already.


  1. I met Calamari. As a new volunteer with the rescue, I jumped at the chance of helping with the new arrivals. I noticed that Calamari was a bit shy. He seemed to want to go back to his kennel. I love your blog, now I can see him relaxed and happy. Thank you.
