Guest pcotton3 Posted April 4, 2016 Share Posted April 4, 2016 Greetings. This is my first post and I thought an introduction would be a great way to start. I am a single father of two, one of which still lives with me. Both of my children are over 20 and I have two grandchildren from my oldest, a daughter. I knew someone, only by way of the internet who lived in New Jersey and he had adopted two greyhounds. He loved them and that got me interested. So, I have wanted one for some time, but lived in a townhouse that did not allow pets. Finally, this past July I bought a house with a large, fenced in back yard. I have a 6' privacy fence with lots of running room. Anyway, on 9/11/2015 I adopted my girl, Gabby. She is amazing and I think everyone should have a greyhound if they are all as sweet as she is. I have watched her change over the months as she has gotten more comfortable with her new home and it is such a wonderful experience. I also found out that the greyhound racing organization has incredible resources and I found races that she was in and watched her win some races. Here is a link to a race she won just prior to retirement - http://www.trackinfo.com/video-box.jsp?raceid=gpb$20150131a05Her race name is O'gabby Drive and she was starting in the 5th position. It makes my heart so proud to see her run and really beat the competition. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
