My name is Kayleen, and I am a white greyhound. This has been a very special
weekend for me and a couple of my friends. This past Friday morning, the
very nice man who feeds us and cares for us at the track got us up and told
us to get ready. We were leaving to retire. None of us knew what that meant,
but it sounded exciting.
My girlfriend Toni (black with white feet and
chest) and boyfriend Poppy (fawn) all got hugs and kisses and rubs while we
packed our things and put on our collars. I think Poppy put on too much hair
gel, because his ears kept popping up and his tail kept curling.
wonderful people- Brigitte and Ken- came and picked us up, and our adventure
started. Toni wanted to be petted, Poppy was bouncing with excitement.
Brigitte and Ken were telling us about good things to come. We got to the
airport and onto an airplane just for us.
Up, up, up we went- 2 miles into
the sky! We all had a fantastic flight.
I was a bit nervous, so I stayed in
the back and rested. I found Poppy's butt to be very comfortable to sleep on
at times. Poppy and Toni were very energetic between naps.
Have you ever played the shell game?
Well, regardless of which seat and seatbelt Mike put
Poppy and Toni, they kept shuffling around and switching sides to see what
was happening. It didn't matter- Mike and Janine could always tell them
apart anyhow. They must have learned that in flight training.
We landed in
Cincinnati and were met by two fantastic people- Dale and Norm. They
welcomed us with open arms. Tonight, I am staying with my foster family, and
Poppy and Toni are staying with Suzanne.
Soft beds, bones, and toys- we love
Thank you so much to everyone who made this possible!!
