    I thought I would post some pics of our pups as we are adding chickens next week and who knows what the future holds, ducks - yes, donkeys - maybe.

    We have five pups in our household, 3 rescued/retired Greyhounds, a Rat Terrier and a Pug.

    Jack, retired racer from Southland park.

    Charlie, retired racer from Daytona park. You may notice he is a tripawd as he is battling osteosarcoma (bone cancer).

    The two together.

    Shelby, never raced but may have been a brood mom. Not much history on her unfortunately.

    Angie, a rescue as well as she was deemed, "too hard to walk".

    Peanut, a 'Ratty' who is our eldest at 12.

    As you can see, we love dogs of all kinds, rarely is there one we don't. The Greyhounds are very special as often misunderstood (e.g. they're hyper, need too much exercise, they're viscious because they wear muzzles, etc.). They are an incredible breed that win your heart as soon as you get to meet them.

    I love to see people that rescue and don't promote breading!

    They are all just beautiful! I love greyhounds, they are so gentle. Most people don't realize they are just big couch potatoes!

    I love your dogs! [​IMG] They are all just so adorable! Who could ever look at a greyhound (and the little ones too!) and not melt with a great big awwww?
    And super kudos for the rescues. [​IMG]
