Seabiscuit’s monkey

The Mister calls Jane “Seabiscuit”, because she reminds him a lot of that race horse:

  • Jane and Seabiscuit were born to be racers.
  • They both weren’t so interested in racing, but if they caught a buddy’s eye just right, zoom! good luck catching them!
  • They’re both undersized.
  • They are both professional sleepers.
  • But most of all, they both need their critter-posse.

Seabiscuit had his horse buddy, two dogs, and a monkey his owners found on a track. I’m Jane’s critter-posse and she found me at the Hern Greyt Works.

When FoodLady wanted to bring Jane home, she agreed with the Greyt Adoption Team that Jane could not be an only dog.  She needed a companion, someone who could show her how to be a confident dog.

FoodLady told the Greyt Adoption Team to let it be Jane’s decision who would go home with her a as a friend. Jane picked me!

FoodLady and me think it was nice to give Jane the choice. I saw FoodLady so many times at the kennel, and she loves all the greyhounds. She gave me lots of kisses on the head way before it was even a remote possibility for me, or Jane, to go live with her. I know she loves me.

So when The Mister asked FoodLady if maybe Jim was feeling sad, or left out, or not special, because FoodLady didn’t directly choose me, that am I just Seabiscuit’s monkey, I wanted to shout out:

silly boy! ask the Greyt Adoption Team to tell you The Big Truth:  most of the time, even when the humans think that they picked the greyhound, the Greyt Adoption Team and us greyhounds know that most of the time, we greyhounds pick our people and our greyhound friends.

So as long as we all know the truth, we can laugh about Jane and me being Seabiscuit and his monkey.

ooh ooh ooh eee eee eee aah aah aah
