Just a note to say thanks for the great advice I found in here. It's been about six weeks since we brought home our Roman nosed, snaggle-toothed second grey, Atascocita Vain - rechristened Ivan by moving some letters around - and have had some issues that started at the adoption agency, namely him wetting his kennel. Tiring quickly of getting up between 3 - 4 am, I checked here for others with similar issues and found something so simple it was stunning. "Maybe he's tired of being in his kennel." Neither of our greys like to be kenneled when necessary, so my DW and I took the plunge, taught him to climb the stairs (with Dexy we waited until she was ready) and set up a dog bed near our bedroom. Presto! He slept in until just minutes before my alarm went off at 7. So thanks again. Glad you folks are here. Hope to be able to contribute something worthwhile in the future.
Is it bad to want my next greyhound to have a certain look? I know many people drool over finding a blue for adoption, yet I've never been drawn to them. My list would include: -male -senior (9+) -small dog safe -Roman nose -black -any other color Over the years we've taken in many seniors here of all colors. With each we had no idea of their personality until they got here, other than what the previous owner said and often that wasn't true. Each one fit in perfectly. Any photo I've seen of a Roman-nose greyhound makes me laugh. I know a Roman nose is no guarantee of a happy dog or happy me. Mikey will be leaving us soon. Lung cancer is beginning to win its battle over him. If you know of an old boy who fits my description above, and he's within driving range of NC, please let me know. There are other males seniors around but none with Roman noses. No bashing please.
