Kim has just welcomed a retired greyhound into her family. She texted us a picture of Ellie. The dog had already made herself at home lolling over the settee. We've got greyhounds. They are funny dogs in that most of the time they are no trouble at all. they don't need much exercise, they sleep most of the time(and snore) and hardly ever bark. They are very affectionate. Although to people who don't know the breed may think they look aggressive when they bare their teeth, they are in fact grinning.The downside is that they can be a tad on the sensitive side. Tommy and Penny hate fireworks/loud bangs it really freaks them out and a freaked out greyhound is a bit of a handful. its on the rare occasions they won't do what I tell them to i realise what big dogs they are. I wouldn't get any other breed of dog, if only for the amount of ex racers that are looking for a home. It breaks your heart.
Here is Steve with Tom and Pen in his parents' garden.
