My forever family came to pick me up Sept. 20/07. I had a long stressful car ride home to Chilliwack BC, but now I don't mind riding in the car. I so love my new name; Bosco, it's so manly and strong. Caroline got it from the TV show Third Watch. "Diggy Do" just didn't cut it anymore.
I have 2 whippet sisters; Pixie & Cleo they are waaaay older than me and I have learned a lot from them, they know how to do lots of things. (wink, wink) I also have 2 siamese cat siblings, Chiyo and Coco (he's the only other boy besides me). I got a new cousin in December - Prince, he's a cute little whippet puppy who pees on everything when he's excited, the girls weren't too fussy for him because he's kinda' hyper, but I didn't mind him at all.
My human family are Mom Helen and Caroline. I love when Grandma comes over, she always has treats. I quickly learned to sniff her pockets and check her purse, and sure enough there is always something tasty. Leonard; Prince's Dad is my favourite, he works in the dog food factory, mmmm he always smells so good. He gets annoyed when I sniff him, I guess I do get carried away!
I mostly spend my day snoozing on the couch, Mom finally bought a 2nd one for herself, but I prefer to sleep there. I will only sleep in Mom's bed, Caroline's just isn't big enough for 4. We have a huge back yard to run in, I can actually run full tilt, but boy am I pooped after that. Pixie is great to run with, she is a Field Champion (I'm a little jealous). I tried out for lure coursing and certified the first day, so I'm hoping to get in a little coursing this spring, I think I can be a field champion too.
I love my forever home, I feel relaxed and happy here, I wag my tail now and bark like crazy when anyone comes to the door, I never knew barking was so fun!! They keep telling me greyhounds don't bark, yeah right! I have no more dandruff and the hair on by back legs is finally growing in....whew I thought I was going to need Rogaine! I've learned to sit and lie down on command, but my sisters still have me beat with that come, sit and finnish stuff - I can't figure out why I should do that.
I have started going to Mom's work to visit the old folks (she's a nurse in a senior's home) I really had a good time, all the people wanted to pet me and kiss me, I didn't even mind the one who hugged me so hard. When they heard my life story they were amazed, I guess I'm just an amazing guy (ha ha).
