Greyhound nut here...my ex-racer passed away 2 years ago this month. He was *my boy*...nothing will ever compare.
Currently we have a dogue de bordeaux (Turner & hooch), he is terrific, a gentle giant. He misses his greyhound brother, he never did get that attitude back after he died.
In a couple years, when I am done with school I will adopt another grey, it breaks my heart to see them and not be able to take any home. We are not here enough right now to be fair to a new addition, they need lots of love and encouragement when they come off of a track, they actually have to learn what windows are, stairs, and sadly how to even play like they should.
*sigh* I will just keep watching them getting placed into homes, and feel proud I could help with that effort at least.
