Stanley lived at a place called Hemopet where retired racing Greyhounds would live while awaiting adoption. While staying there they performed a very vital duty as blood donors. Apparently Greyhounds are universal blood donors and provide much needed blood to Vet Clinics all over the country.
The Writer and Sammy made several visits to Hemopet and were carefully screened as potential "parents". The people where Stanley lived carefully matched potential owners with the dogs taking into consideration many things: Dog's personality, Owners' personalities', living accomodations - apartment or house?, children present, other animals present and so on.
Sammy and The Writer were a good match with Mr. Stan as he is a low energy dog who didn't require someone with him all day while they were at work. He IS a bit of a couch potato, but can move out when he wants to at the dog beach.
There were many other everyday activities that Stan's new parents helped him adjust to: stairclimbing - had to do that, they live on the second floor, getting in and out of a car, relaxing in the car, learning his new non-racing name, learning to come when called... learning to come when called....
Stanley has settled in very well thanks to the loving care he receives from Sammy and The Writer.
He goes just about everywhere with them.
Yes, I'd say Stanley is quite comfortable in his new home...
