So does this mean it is faster ,or because you do not have to type so much?

neither. many URLs are super long and wrap awkwardly. shortening the URL stops that from happening. the only down-side is that the shortened link will eventually expire (not a problem for some things, like Petfinder ads, where the page will expire anyway). for permanent web pages, it's a good idea to provide both the original long link, for archival purposes, and the shortened link.

I will go read how to do it.
Thanks

Ok, so then I will have to learn how to shorten the original link.

So much to learn..

Pretty easy. Copy the long link you want to post. Go to one of the sites suggested earlier, and paste it into their 'Input long URL here' field. Hit enter, and presto, your short link is ready.

Thanks Suja. It is amazing though how when you know how to do something it is so darn easy, and when you don't, well it creates a lot of aggravation.

Howdy Alison,
If you get a Greyhound I hope you do take it out to run.

My experience has been that there are greyhounds out there that don't need to run. You are right though, many do enjoy it.
Would you
lure course it or open field course it?¿ 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 :-)
This reminds me of coursing one of our old greyhounds. He was one who loved to run. At the time, there was a coursing group nearby and we would take our dogs coursing on Sunday mornings. We only had a straight course, though, so he never saw a turn, as you mentioned. I took him to his first official coursing competition and he had to do an initial run to become qualified to course in a sanctioned event. The lure went about 75 yards, with Racie at full speed right behind it, then did a 90 degree turn to the right. Racie had way too much speed and ran about another 25 yards before he could try to turn, but the look on his face was priceless. You could just read the 'what the *** just happened?' experssion so clearly.

Howdy Alison, If you get a Greyhound I hope you do take it out to run. My experience has been that there are greyhounds out there that don't need to run. You are right though, many do enjoy it.

That is true. But many are happy just hanging out.

My agility trainer has 3 IG's. And one whippet.
They are all so darned cute. Her newest one
is quite stunning. With the tiger stripe brindle
markings and lots of white. She is a beauty.
Of course I realize IG's and GH's are really
the same but similar.

I think that Caber Feidh's success in having longer-lived dogs ... already agreed to a rescued Grey as our next dog.

I think you will be very happy with a greyhound. There are also several good books on the subject. I'll ... on where you are. Unforunantly, the closest one to me is an hour and a half away. Oh well. Paul

Thanks, Paul! I've read Cynthia Branigan's (sp?) book, my hubby actually bought it for me as a Christmas present a couple years back. Emotion: smile

If I get a sound dog I'd definitely be interested in coursing, and I'm probably masochistic enough to pursue agility. Emotion: wink Unfortunately by the time I'm able to adopt a dog I'll almost certainly no longer live in Ohio.
In fact I expect that an important criterion when choosing our next home will be proximity to a safe offleash area!

Howdy All,
This is a shameless promotion of my little web page :-) I have added a couple Greyhound pix and a Saluki pic. They are on the second page . Hope you enjoy.
