  1. I think JC something. I think the last part started with a P. I know he is alive because he posted on another forum maybe 7 days ago.
  2. I don't have a lot of information for you, but if we jump to the mid 1800's greyhounds were brought to the states from Ireland and England for one purpose and that was to hunt and kill jackrabbits. The jacks were eating the farmers crops. the greyhounds would catch and kill what they could and I don't know abut eating the jacks, but I would think the farmers didn't care if they did. if you go back a thousand years or more coursing was a sport even back then and it wasn't about the kill as much as it was about the chase. The hare would be given a head start and the chase was on. So catchin
  3. I know there have been a number of threads about dog steps to help older dogs getting in and out of a car. A number of people have explained how to make them, but I saw this video of a greyhound using the steps and thought I would post it. https://www.facebook.com/KathyMal/videos/pcb.2892102547550708/10219655620513640/?type=3&ifg=1&__tn__=HH-R&eid=ARCNBVXyPbpv3AtoOqA_ee-nd5A2dkX9uEoiDYBYlE8R3Kxisad59tSSSw4x79nVRw7pyUy5e6H3B3oC
  4. Just a reminder that I, and a few others on GT, can edit your pups G-D page. There is now a field for adopted owner and pet name. There is also a bereavement section where we can add the date of death and a couple of sentences if you wish. Plus, up to three pictures can be posted on the G-D forum and if you want pictures posted just add them to this thread. G-D added a watermark to the pictures because pictures were being taken from G-D without the owners or G-D's permission. You still own your pictures, but G-D will go after people that steal pictures from their site.
  5. Done, but I couldn't upload the video. I may not have permission to do that from the mods. If you need something changed or added let me know. http://www.greyhound-data.com/d?d=BGR+ShirlyTemple&sex=&color=&birthyear=&birthland=
  6. FYI: I can post pictures on her G-D page and there are now fields to enter who she was adopted by and also her pet name. If you want me to do any of these things just post the information here. Dick
  7. Daytona was scheduled to close on March 28th and they closed a week early because of the virus. Sanford Orlando was going to close the first week in June, I think after the Belmont, but with them closing because of the virus they decided to end racing last week. This put probably 1400 dogs into adoption at once. Both tracks would be considered low end tracks so not many of those dogs would move to another track so adoption is where most would go. Naples closes May 3rd, but I would guess a lot of those dogs will go to Iowa as their meet starts May 16th. Since Naples is a very good track
  8. If you watch the race closely you will notice near the finish line after the break Chill has a problem with the 3 and gets knocked back. Then as they enter the backstretch he jumps out and goes around the 3 and one other dog. As far as having an extra gear, that is what most dogmen and women and gamblers call it.
  9. Chillaxification is probably one of the top two or three dogs in the country. If you like a closer he is the dog to watch. He is never out of it even when he looks like he is and this is the way he runs most of his races.. He is in the 1 box http://www.trackinfo.com/video-box.jsp?raceid=gSL%2420200306T02
  10. With Big Kenny Moon it is impossible to give any information since he only shows one race, the other race he was scratched, and in that race he was last all the way around. There is a good chance he ran more than that one race since back then we put in all races by hand and a lot of dogs have incomplete records. Mac's Gideon shows 7 races all at Tri-State and he didn't have any early speed and didn't have any late speed. You can figure out that isn't good. He had one maiden race where he finished second and his other races he was between 5th and 8th. Mac's Zed ran 70 races all at
  11. I would continue to pay the 100 dollars a month to myself. Open up an account and put the 100 dollars in it ever month just like you pay ever other bill. If you need the money for the dog it is there.
  12. https://www.ocregister.com/2020/02/26/therapy-dogs-take-the-bite-out-of-travel-at-john-wayne-airport/ I like the last sentence. “I’m happy to be covered with dog hair,” Wagner said. “It’s a great look.”
  13. SJ’s Princess ran 27 races all at Sanford Orlando. She was a dog that needed to be on top at the 1st turn to have any chance to win. Her problem was she didn't have great early speed. LOL In her 27 races she had one win, two 3rds and three 4ths. They tried putting her in the shorter 330 yard races, but that didn't work out and she is now your pet and I'm positive she is a better pet than a racer. Dangerous Lion ran 140 races between Sanford Orlando, Mardi Gras and Palm Beach. He was a dog with not much early speed. He could rush the turn a little, but nothing that would get him to the
