Being myself!

Dont mind the crazy lady running the camera talking baby to me!! Thats just my foster mom. I love when she talks like that to me!!!! It usually means I'm gonna get belly rubs! Can you give me belly rubs? I'll be your forever friend if you do.

 This is an old video of me playing with my last foster sister, Susy Q! Suz is spoiled and loved in her forever home. Why cant it be my turn? I want to be spoiled and loved in a forever home too!!!

This one is a short manners video. You cant see the "touch" well at the end but I touched my foster mom's hand with my nose just like I was supposed to!!!

Bye Byes part two

 Here are more pictures of Bye Bye's from last weekend. The boy is my "uncle Kyle". He loves me very much and I love him too. He cant adopt me right now though since he needs to finish school before becoming owned by a dog. 
I really liked his bed. He let me sleep in the big bed my last night there
 Here I am getting belly rubs

 More belly rubs. I love belly rubs they are the best!!!
 I can make my self REALLY SMALL if I need to. I love nothing more then to be by people
The other dog was out for a walk so mom brought out my bone! I'm not allowed to have bones around other dogs because I get too protective. I'm glad the other dog went away. I love bones!!!!

Mom is going to upload my videos as another entry later. Some show my manners and some show how good I play with other dogs

I had such a fun weekend!!!! My mom had a family reunion to go to in WI and she took me with!!!! My foster brother had to stay in KY at a babysitter's and I got to go all by myself!!! I was so much fun!!! The bye byes up there was a long ride but I rode really good.
 See how good I ride!!

I got tired of standing...but i really wanted to come up front!

I didnt think they could see me sneaking up!!!

Can I drive now?
Back seat view!! Mom was filling up my water bowl!

I had so much fun!!! Mom had to drive on the way home so she didnt get as many pictures coming home..... I will have mom post the pictures of my new friends tomorrow. Maybe she can even figure out how to get my videos up.

Something big is coming........

Not really sure whats happening but something feels different. Mom has been packing a whole bunch of my stuff and my foster brother's stuff up. Last time this happened we went "bye bye" for almost a full week!!! We will see whats happening.

Here is my picture  for the day. This is me just relaxing in my crate. I love to chill in here when my mom is running around doing stuff in the house. As you can see my ball is right next to me. I love to bring my toys in the crate to keep them safe. I really love my crate it makes me feel safe. Sometimes my mom's foster cat will join me but no dogs allowed!

Cant wait to see whats happening soon!!

Hello everyone!

Hello everyone! I have some followers already I cant believe it!!! Today has been a pretty typical day. Mom had a friend come over and I was so excited to see her I couldnt contain my excitement!!! I was smiling so big and wagging my tail so hard but i settled down and mom let me go say hi! I love new people so much. I really wanted to go bye bye's ( car ride) with new friend but mom said no. Instead I got to spend my day sleeping on the couch. I kicked all the other animals off and got it all to myself!!! Right in front of the air conditioning too! Mom says I'm "spoiled".

Pretty typical day here. Can't wait till mom gets off work so we can play!!

One of my favorite toys

This is me playing with one of my favorite squeaky toys!

Its the same video posted twice cant figure out why. Enjoy!

Hi, My name is Derby

Hello everyone,
My foster mom started this blog as a way to promote her adoptable animals. She takes in animals from shelters or people who cant keep them anymore and takes care of them untill they find forever homes! My name is Derby and although I am not her first foster animal I get to be the first one to write about myself and my adventures! If you want to adopt me or any other animal my foster mom has we will tell u at the end of each blog where to go.

Ok, enough formalities! Now to the fun part. All about me!!!
My name is Derby and I am a greyhound/ Sheppard mix. I am about four years old but that is just a guess because somebody let me loose and I was turned into the Kentucky Humane Society in Louisville KY by a nice volunteer. I got to the shelter in February of 2010. I was a very good boy while I was there but I was heart-worm positive and that's why I think no one wanted me.  I was there for about 6 weeks before my foster mom first got to take me home. She said it was because the shelter was overcrowded and so I got to go stay with her for a few  weeks! I loved it with her. My mom said she can tell I was loved before since I am a very good boy and have never messed in her house. I know better! Only outside it okay potty space!

A nice couple in her apartment complex fell in love with me and instead of going back to the shelter I got to go home with them!!!  I liked it at their place at first but they had little babies come over and a mean cat that didnt like me. Eventually they returned me to the shelter but because I was so scared the people at the shelter didnt think I could be adopted out. They contacted my foster mom in July 2010 and she has had me ever since.

I like it at my mom's place but I would like a bigger family with older kids and possibly a fenced in yard to play in. I love to run and play!!! Im mostly a couch potato though. I love to cuddle on the couch and watch tv and I'm very well behaved at home. I like to play with toys and LOVE treats. I have good manners and know what to do when my mom says Sit, down, off, come, touch. leave it and wait!!!

Well thats all for now
