Añejo Mockingbird

Used to be this place was mostly about music and pop culture, but it's slowly morphed into a launching pad for finding our foster greyhounds new homes. So be it. We love the hounds and are more than happy to use our modest little blog page to reach out and snag some attention for these greyt dogs... Oh, we'll still post the occasional odd music review or rant at the state of the Redskins from time to time, but they'll hafta take a back seat to the dogs 'til further notice

Music geek who appreciates everything from power-pop to indie-rock and most everything in between. I especially dig Reggae and its predecessor, Ska.

Dash's Diary

Hey, folks!
I'm Dash, and this'll be the start of my blog - a kinda diary of sorts.
I'm currently being fostered in Pennsylvania and have had an exciting time with all the cool, new things (mirrors are so awesome!) in my foster's house.
Yesterday I went swimming! Not on purpose, of course. I was playing and running around the back yard with my new foster brother, Coastal,(he's a greyhound, too!) and figured I'd show him a thing or two, maybe even something he'd never seen before. With my name being Dash, and me being a greyhound, I just figured that I could run right over the top of the water and never look back and Coastal would have to eat my dust! Didn't quite work out that way, although foster dad said he's never seen any dog jump that far out into the pool before.... made quite a big splash, too! Heh, was I ever embarrassed, foster dad had to help me doggie paddle to the shallow end of the pool and show me where the steps were so I could get out. Brrrrr... the water's still pretty cold, but I was right about one thing - Coastal had definitely never seen anything like that!
Anyhow, I'm settling in nicely - kissing the foster dad's daughters, and eating treats, and sleeping on Coastal's big ol' bed. I even went for a walk last night and had several people tell me how pretty I was. Cool! I'll admit to being a tiny bit nervous here and there, I even was nervous of Coastal's stuffies and squeak toys but after awhile I started playing with them myself. There's so many new things to do I can't explain all of it, but I'll log in every few days and blog about myself a bit.
