Hello! My name is Genevieve and my husband Michael and I have just fostered our first greyhound fresh off the track from Tijuana. Her race name is Boltz but since we're planning on adopting her we've given her the name Xena, after our favorite warrior princess. Michael and I had been wanting a dog for a very long time but until recently we'd been living in apartments with no-dog rules. Then in October we were finally able to buy our first house, a 2k sq ft 2-story with a yard and a pool, which for LA is no small feat! It's super exciting and we are loving this new life. We already had one
Hello everyone! Just joined, and just picked out my first greyhound! He will be coming home with me next week, and I want to have EVERYTHING prepared for him. For a little background, this is my first personal dog, but I'm not new to dogs in general. I'm a Becker College Animal Sciences grad, and currently work as a dog groomer. The Greyhound I just picked out is a 4 year old retiree, brindle with white face, and has had 29 teeth extracted and been diagnosed with Pannus. His pet name is Charles and racing name was (I think) Ex Sheriff. I'm open to all advice and suggestions!
We got Hoku, star in Hawaiian, in August. Lovely male who is fitting in with the whippet and chihuahua mix. So, just like potato chips, you can't have just one! Two weeks ago we adopted Willow too. Now we have two big black sighthounds. We were used to whippets who would never dream of getting their dainty feet wet. No fear about them getting into the pond, then mucking up the house with wet feet. Greyhounds love water! They gallop around the yard, then jump in the pond to cool off, and dash around some more. And of course use the dog door to put paw prints all over the living room. Got to lov
