We just brought home our third retired racing greyhound this week, and after years of raising and showing scent hounds, owning assorted terriorist etc., we are totally and absolutely in love with greyhounds.
It's been a tough week for us, and a tough year. We lost our grand old grey at age 14 last July to probable hemangiosarcoma, the 14 year old Border Terriorist in February to siezures and hugely unexpectedly Tuesday evening our 10 year old grey to a splenic tumor (most likely hemangiosarcoma as well).
We had already made arrangements to bring home another and she is lovely. Working on DH to make it a pair!
The greyhound sounds wonderful and I know they are great pets, but you must add another Border Terrorist to your pack also. My life is dictated by two Border Terrorists and I couldn't imagine not having those cute faces around.
