I think Monday is slowing becoming the most raddest(yes it’s a word!) day of the week now with the ‘ol Monday Herd; watch out Friday……..here we come.
Ya know what they say, “Variety is the spice of life”. With that in mind, you should really check out The Tallest Man on Earth, and while reading this, you should listen to King Of Spain. Before you make an rash decisions, take a deep breath, listen to the song once through, then………..listen to it again. You’ll be humming it the rest of the day, trust.
On the topic of royalty, there were two women in my life that quite possible felt like royalty this past Sunday. If you guessed my mother, then well you guessed one of them!
The other……………….. well you’ve never been introduced, and neither was I until Friday.
The new lady in my life; Overjoyed!!!!! Weighing in at 55lbs with 46492 tattooed in her left year and 48A tattooed in her right, she is the newest addition to The Herd. She was also our Mother’s Day gift to our Ma this year. (oh and at the track they tattoo ID’s in the dogs ears)
She is a two year old greyhound that we rescued from the CT Greyhound Adoption. She is the sweetest girl, and when she came over and started investigating her new house and meeting her new roomates, Tech began to foam at the mouth. I am pretty sure this is the first female dog that he has spent anytime around. I think it was his doggie way of blushing! Hahaha, Tech you ‘ol dog you.
So as I write this, Joy(it’s what we call her for short, Overjoyed is her racing name) is fitting in right proper. She has gone on a few ‘tears’ in the backyard and put Tech to shame. She has kicked Jake off his bed and she has already made her mark on the family.
What’s cool about adopting a Greyhound is that you get all their racing information, Joy’s well….. let’s say she wasn’t a natural born racer. Some of the comments on her racing card are as follows: ” no contender, trouble 1st turn, never in it, tangled up 1st turn”. I am sure after those races, Joy felt pretty crappy. Well I am gonna go ahead and say she probably feels like a queen now, and there is no reason why she shouldn’t.
apparently Jake is quite the joke teller.
