Yes, as the heading indicates, Blaze has been sprung from prison. He was released on May 31st along with nine of his bestest friends. Most have gone to their forever homes and are acclimating well. Blaze spent his first weekend of freedom at Ms. Kate's place, Manyhounds Inn, in Canton. He had a great time, I heard. Here he is in the dark of the night getting sniffed up by another Greyhound at "camp".
All has been well at my home with my three Greyhound girls. He is the best boy and knows his commands without any hesitation. We are working on his approach to my food as he really hasn't ever been around people cooking and eating before. The Greyhounds at the prison are not allowed in the cafeteria and food isn't allowed in the dorms so this is all new to him. A quick "No" and the command "bed" and he goes to a dog bed to lay down.
He is very good and very smart and I might add, a very good looking dog! Just beautiful. I promise to get some pictures of him soon!!
Neil has had a bit of a rough week due to extra commotion going on in the dorm and such. He tends to prefer a quieter environment with less loud noises. He is a very calm, fun and easy going dog who deserves his own home and family to love.
While in prison he has learned all of his basic commands including sit, down, stay, here, heel, shake, bed, stairs, wait, kiss and lap.
His inmate trainer says he has come a long way since his first day and she is very proud of his achievements and wishes him the best in his new home!!
Neil is doing so well. He had a great week. He loves to play and bounces and prances as he runs. He is just gorgeous to watch. His best friend is Jeri Ryan. He loves her. They have the best time together. He does great with his training and is ready to graduate. This lovable teddy bear will be a great addition to a forever home.
Neil has learned all of his commands and is coasting to graduation. He is enjoying his down time and has been busy playing with the other greyhounds off lead on the recreational field. He is soaking up all the love and affection coming his way. He is so soft and cuddly people can't resist petting him. He is going to make a great companion.
