Doesn't have to be so. Here's the memorial page for ... a clip of her doing zoomies at age 10. http://caberfeidh.com/Lillie.htm

They've got gorgeous Deerhounds. I don't know much about them, except they are/have been very active in holistic/raw feeding ... was featured in the AKC Gazette a few months ago (The "Day in the Life..." pictoral) Shelly & The Boys

I think that Caber Feidh's success in having longer-lived dogs with natural rearing goes to show how much of a difference it can make.

A coursing sighthound is quite a sight to behold. Emotion: smile My husband, not a dog person, really admires their physique. Skinny with buff legs? That's exactly what he wants to look like! He has already agreed to a rescued Grey as our next dog.
-Alison in OH
I know.
Where are you, Paul?

I am in Cincinnati. Believe it or not, we'll be driving down to Florida to get the new dog.

There are not any in your area that caught your heart?
We lived down there for a few years and were very active in the rescue group down there.

OIC
That is where Martha came from and it just seems right.

)
Plus, it gives us a chance to spend a day or two with our friends from the rescue group. I believe you are in Mass.?

Yes, Cape Cod.
I have heard that there is a very good greyhound rescue organization up there.

We have one right here in town, and they are alwaysin the Christmas Parade,as is all sorts of other dogs. : )
I think there are like 7 tracks in Mass, so they need a good rescue organization.

I only know of two.
There are some organizations near here and I believe they mostly get their dogs from the West Virginia tracks.

Much good thoughts to you and your new pup!

A dogs life is too short...
Their only fault really...
There are not any in your area that caught your heart?

If I saw one here, yes, it would catch my heart in a second. Then we'd probably end up with two new dogs and have four total. We almost did that a year ago when we got our last dog. Emotion: smile

That sounds fun. I used to enjoy doing things like that when we were active in rescue. Holloween parties for the dogs, things like that.

As an aside, Cape Cod was the only time I ever saw snow on a beach. I had always thought of beaches as summer type places before that.

I must have had that mixed up with another state. Still, I have heard of the rescue organization up there. It is supposed to be a good one and they place a lot of dogs.
Much good thoughts to you and your new pup!

Thanks, I am really starting to look forward to the new dog and the changes she will bring to our house. Probably wake our other two up a bit!
Yeah we will have that here, also a Halloween parade and walk.

Oh last summer the harbors were frozen over first time since 77. We had to put bubblers around the boats to keep them from freezing in and braking the wood apart.
Ever been out on a sail in the snow? NICE : )

Yes, and they also have a boarding kennel that I recommend to people .

So when are you going down?

I think you will be very happy with a greyhound. There are also several good books on the subject. I'll be glad to recommend some to you if you want.
If you are interested in coursing, when you get your sighthound, there are several organizations in Ohio. It just depends on where you are. Unforunantly, the closest one to me is an hour and a half away. Oh well.

Paul
Howdy Alison,
If you get a Greyhound I hope you do take it out to run. Would you lure course it or open field course it?=BF In either case the track hounds have to learn what turning is. This can surprise the first time coursing person when they get out there with their faster than a blue streek track hound and on the first sharp turn the dog ends up in Timbucktu LOL. So I hope you can join in the fun. Make a fast friend, adopt a Greyhound :-)

What rescue dog are you currently obsessed with?

Pup. He's been on the Petfinder site for months now, but has been in BSCA's rescue/foster home in WA for awhile now (and from what I've heard, he's staying they adore him). He just looks FUN, and I love the frosted muzzle.

And Chica. She's also been in the ABTC's rescue system for awhile. She looks so pretty, maybe a GSD/Terv mix, she's just pretty. She looks like a dog that could fit into my household very easily. And she's a girl, which is a definite plus. http://tinyurl.com/su67
Finally, there is Murphy. 9 mos. old, they're calling him a Belgian/Collie cross. But, the catch is, he's brindle. He's just striking, even from the crummy photo. I really, really like him and keep checking to see if he's come up adopted. 9 mos. old, and SO handsome...I need to stop looking, I could easily find a reason I might need to adopt him (he's in PA, that's one good reason not to). But he's just so pretty... no more boys...no more boys...no more boys...

It's too bad the older dogs are so hard to adopt out. I shouldn't say anything - it'd break my heart to lose a dog after having had it for only a few years.

Gorgeous! The Boyz would like to have a baby sister. Just ask them. And, she's close to you.

That's not gonna work! I have always wondered if we have enough people here that we can do a cross country transport. Maybe it is time to find out?

he's bee-yoo-tiful! he looks like a Dutch Shepherd to me.
