Clyde's wish......

Clyde is doing really great and wishes to go to his forever home where he can continue to get lots of love, treats and a nice bed to sleep on for the 4th of July.

He is such a nice dog and he is so much fun! He loves people and gets along really well with our 3 dogs; he even shares the toys with them too!
He does so well on the leash that we don't use the harness anymore, just his collar!

Here are some pictures of today and we will try to post a video tomorrow.....

Happy-go-lucky Clyde!

We only have great things to say about Clyde...
He is such a smart dog! He is doing really well with his " wait " command. This is a good command to know. Before our walk, he waits until I say "OK " to start going...
He does really well on the walks. He does not pull or bark even if he sees another dog, and that is great!
People in the neighborhood really like him and say that he is so beautiful and so friendly! They are right, he is all that! He has beautiful light brown eyes!

Clyde is doing amazingly well at learning sharing his toys! We took some nice pictures of him playing with them :-)

He pretty much is out of the crate all day and is doing well. At night and when we are gone are the only times he is in his crate. He sleeps well all night and does well in it during the day as well...
Tonight he met an Italian greyhound and the meeting was nice and friendly.
We are very proud of him! He is a smart and happy hound who would adjust easily to his forever home :-)

If you like to meet this happy, tail wagging, kissing, and friendly greyhound with good manners, give Denise a call!

Clyde knows no stranger! :-) :-) :-)

Clyde continues to learn the ropes to be a great a family member.
He is super affectionate and loves everybody....
He has good table manners! A simple "no" keeps him away from the food on the counter and will lay next to you while you eat your meal and not bother you at all.

Today I let him be out his crate for less than a half an hour without supervision while I took a shower and he was fine! Actually all he did was taking a nap..... :-)

He wakes up between 5:30 and 6:00 am most days but today he slept until 6:30 am .
He enjoys a good run with our dogs in the yard and gets along really well with all 3.

He is fine doing 3 stairs to go outside from our deck....
We are teaching him a new command this week " wait" and will keep you posted on his progress.

He likes to sleep in his crate, other dog beds in the living or even the bare floor.

Here a some pictures of Clyde in the kitchen. Did I mention he loves his belly rub?

Clyde meets the neighborhood horse!

Today was such a nice day that we decided to take Clyde for a walk and see how he behaves on a leash.
We put a harness on him because he has a strong prey drive, just in case we saw a few bunnies or cats on our walk. He did really well! He leans on you while you walk and also when you stop.
We did not meet any dogs; just a few people cutting their lawn and he just walked by them.
He heard a dog barking at us from a window while we walked by and Clyde was just fine.

Then we decided to introduce him to Vincent, our neighborhood horse. He was not too sure at first and ended up nose to nose with the horse.

He is such a love bug! He will put his head on your lap while you are on the sofa and his head on your chest if you are laying down .... He loves everybody, we have 2 college kids and 3 other dogs and Clyde loves the kids and the resident hounds!
One more thing! He has not had any accident(s) in the house or his crate so far! He will cry or stand by the door if he needs to go....

He is a joy to have at our house and we are so happy we are able to foster this happy boy!

Clyde The Man !

Clyde really enjoys being retired!
He is a fun loving hound who is very happy and will follow you everywhere you go.
Yesterday he cried in his crate when I had to go to work for a few hours, but there wasn't a sound at bed time!
Today was a really good day too, Clyde was relaxed in his crate while I took a shower and ran a few errands.
It is amazing to see how fast he is adjusting and how relaxed he is already!
This morning he was sleeping next to me while I was on the computer and he was snoring!
Here are some pictures from today:

Clyde has arrived!

Clyde ( Dr Clyde the man ) has arrived!
He is really adjusting quiet well to his foster home and he has charmed the girls already!
Tasha really likes him and so does Lizzy and Win.
It has not been 24 hours since his arrival and we got lots of tail wagging and even a lick!
He is obedient when you tell him "NO" when he is counter surfing, and he listens right away.
After a few minutes of crying in his crate last night, he settled and had a good night sleep--so did we.
He does have a high prey drive! In the yard, he does not miss any bunnies that he can see! He will chase them!

We leave his crate open when we are home and he goes in it when he is ready for his nap.
He is a sweetheart and affectionate !

If you would like to meet Clyde please call Denise @ (304)229-4944
