Our greyhounds

Casey our greyhoundOur greyhound Casey, and our previous greyhound Blue were both rescue dogs.

I often speak to people who think that greyhounds need a lot of exercise – nothing could really be further from the truth.

They are sprinters and spend most of their time 'resting', often in the dead cockroach position (on their backs, with their legs in the air).

I've created some more pages about greyhounds for those of you who are also besotted by these wonderful dogs or just want to find out more ...

Our greyhound also features on my 2018 greyhound calendars and free computer wallpaper pages.
