I’ve been reading up a little on retired racing greyhounds. My city has an active rescue group, and they do meet and greets at a local pet store periodically….foster families and the dogs, I presume? I’m going to one this Saturday, I think.
I would ordinarily lean toward a smaller dog…medium sized, probably not toy. But what I read about greyhounds surprised me! More than one site identified them as 40 mph couch potatoes. Couch potatoes! Who’d a thunk it! We’re sort of couch potatoes. Low shedding, little doggy odor, even when wet. Don’t bark much. Cuddles with pillows and whatnot. I don’t know…I may have found my doggie type???
Anyone with experience or stories to share? I’d love to hear them. Stepson’s wedding is in mid-June, and then the dog adoption process can get underway – no further travel plans for the foreseeable future. The kids are getting so excited about getting a dog again. I am too!
