I Love Greyhounds

    I Didn't Pick Her, She Picked Me.

    In loving memory of my beloved Greyhound, Goldie. One of my dogs had passed on. I still had an 11 year old Lurcher that for the first time in her life, was the ONLY dog in the house. I knew that I needed an adult dog for her, since a puppy would be too active and annoy her. I...

    Childhood Breeding And Owing Racing Dogs

    my grandfather and grandmother owned a large number of grey hound racing dogs. They had huge kennels fenced off for at 20 or more up on the old farm after the house burnt down. They were noisy at night like the "Hound of the Baskivilles" howling... in the 70's and 80's ... they...

    Safe Haven To Den Of Destruction

    I've had my newest greyhound for 7 months now. She's a wild one. Literally. She's big and she can be a tiny bit aggressive when you walk around her while she's trying to rest. One of my favorite things is to see my dogs sleeping, all stretched out, so cute! But I get too...

    Why You Should Adopt A Greyhound

    I adopted my greyhound 9 years ago. I was influenced in my decision by my sister, who had owned one for several years. They are a unique breed! Greyhounds, that is. Sisters are a whole other story... One thing that must be said at the outset: Greyhounds are as affectionate as...

    Great Dogs

    Very gentle, polite, measured dogs. So graceful in all their movements- yet still able to show that happy-puppy enthusiasm with a wag of the tail. I have been on a waiting list for a Greyhound via an ex-racing dog rehoming group....I do love Greyhounds and one day I hope to own...

    The Best Treasure- Lace!

    I write this on the anniversary of Lace's passing. This is the greyhound that altered my life forever- it sounds tacky even putting it that way. Lace was an exceptional dog- I always said she wasn't a dog, she was a unicorn. Pure white beautiful greyhound, quite the looker with a...

    Such A Beautiful Dog.

    I fell in love with greyhounds about 19 years ago; I'm currently 33. In 2004, I adopted my first rescued greyhound. She raced 135 races, and would still run laps around my backyard. Goldie continued to run for fun until the day before she passed. I have since adopted another...
