    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...

    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...

    My Dog's Name Is Chance.

    You can learn more about my dog via my EP Pets link.  But Chance came a long way before I ended up with him.   He is a rescue greyhound from Guam.  You can read a lot of literature about rescue greyhounds and how they are amazing dogs.  But it doesn't do...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
