Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth and Bo Derek :lol but I imagine that's not what you meant! :hehe

 

Also, can't forget George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt and General Custer. I did a speech about greyhounds my sr. year in college. That's all that I can remember. :)

 

Sorry I'm not more help!

I've seen a photo on the Internet with a celebrity who has recently adopted a Grey, but can't recall who that was. Brad Pitt? It was someone really well-known. I'm trying to recall who that was...

Art Alexaciz (sp??) from the foo fighters has 5!

 

He does GREAT things for rescue too, donates lots of money, etc. I saw him on TV a while back espousing how wonderful they are. :)

I seem to recall a People magazine article a few years ago that featured an SNL comedian. One of the pictures showed him and his greyhound and his family. I want to say it was Daryl Hammond, but I'm not sure, anyone know?

Here's a picture of Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails). He's had at least one whippet in the past (can be seen in the "Perfect Drug" video).

I'm drawing a blank but the guy on The Price is Right has greys and also helps get them adopted.

 

Bob Barker

 

 

 

Thank you! I couldn't think of his name for anything. :lol

NASCAR driver, Tony Stewart, owns racing greyhounds and also places them for adoption when they are done racing.

I am a big Tony Stewart race fan, and even a bigger fan now I know he has greys!

Abourt a decade ago, there was an organization called "Racers for Racers" which involved NASCAR folks involved in greyhound adoption. At the time Derricke (sp?) Cope had a couple of GHs and I think Danielle Frye (her married name, I don't recall her maiden name), who is now a NASCAR reporter, were both involved. Danielle used to be on the GH-L when she worked for the NASCAR front office in PR. I don't know if either of them still has greyhounds, nor if the organization still exists. Anyone know?

 

There are some folks who are involved in NASCAR trucks (I think as an owner or crew chief) who also own dogs that race. I don't recall names, but they are from Wisconsin and were involved w a championship team a couple of years ago. I think they are the folks who helped Tony buy his dogs.

 

If anyone handles any of Tony Stewarts dogs, I'd love to hear if they are being graded off. I think there is even one named Zippy--after his crew chief. Any GT'ers got one of Smoke's dogs?

 

And, no, I'm not into NASCAR, not even a little, :lol
