Meme & Tail Tuesday

Herbie of Purrs n' Snorts tagged me for a meme:

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player than tags 4 or 5 people and post their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you have posted your answer.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago? Well, since I will be 11 sometime in June, and greyhounds typically start racing between the ages of 18 months and 2 years of age, I was training to run races 10 years ago.

2. Five Things on my to-do list today. Take a walk with Mom, eat breakfast, mess up Mom's bed when I take a nap there, eat dinner, whine at Mom.

3. Three snacks I enjoy. Scooby Snacks, The cat's food, Temptations - They are really good - but really small - they should make them bigger.

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire. Buy Mom a house with a yard big enough for me to run around in. Build a huge no-kill shelter. Educate people on how to take care of their pets. Work to get greyhound racing stopped. Give the rest of the money to Mom to take care of. I would be rich, so I wouldn't have to deal with it.

5. Three of my bad habits. Waking Mom up "way to early" on the weekends, counter surfing and getting into food type things I am not supposed to, trying to steal the cats' food.

6. With the racing greyhound breeder with my mama and my siblings, at various racetracks, in the retired kennel at the racetrack in Tiajuana, Mexico (part of the American Racing Circuit), at my forever home.

7. Five jobs I have had. Money maker (racer), tree hider under (in the retired kennel - its what got me my forever home), being cute, loving the cats, Alarm Clock on the weekend. Mom's never goes off then, so I have to make sure she is up.

I am not going to tag anyone because I am sure that most everyone has participated already.

In tail news, it is still swollen, but I am using the whole tail. I don't want to have to deal with anyone really - I have turned into a grumpy, old man. I have been sleeping in this chair and will love on Mom when she comes to me, but if she picks me up and puts me in her bed, I tend to hop down and go back to my chair. I did sleep with her for about 3 hours last night.

Camie, we enjoyed learning more about you! We like the things you would do if you were a billionaire. It is cool that you like Temptations too!

Tiki, we are sorry to hear your tail is still swollen. :( Sending lots of healing purrs your way.

Christine and FAZ said...

Dear Camie, your life is very interesting. We heard on the news today about other greyhounds at a place called Walthamstow (I think) who are being forced to retire because their track is closing. We hope these greyhounds get retired to a good home like you. FAZ

Tiki-I am glad your tail is feeling a bit better!

Camie, it was good to learn about you.

Tiki, I am glad your tail is starting to feel a bit better but I hope you start feeling better to. It must have been very sore if you are still grumpy.

Eric and Flynn said...

That wuz very interesting Camie.
Tiki we hope the swelling soon goes down in your tail.Can your mum get Arnica gel? That is very soothing furr swellings and bruising. She keeps it furr the horses but uses it herself if she gets kicked or stepped on. She sez it is like magic furr taking the influrrmayshun out of owies.
