We've got two and working on getting a third one later this year, although the logistics of going from two to three dogs is hugely different than going from one to two.

(Shameless plug)
You're very fortunate to have Operation Greyhound nearby to you (El Cajon) as they're an excellent group at rehoming ex-racers. (They get their dogs from the Caliente Racetrack.) I got my first grey from them (a puppy, no less) and would continue getting dogs from there if it weren't a two-day trek out and then back for me. Bruna and Bob are lovely and caring folks and the greyhound community they've created is exemplary with walks and annual picnics.
Thats who I got mine from. when it was run by an Aussie trainer... retired from the track.

My dog had a crypt orchid so neutering was as expensive as a spay. even more so because they cant have barbituates.

There were at least two organizations that I knew of here in El Cajon... One was very draconian with regard to who they would allow to have a greyhound. I may not opt to do it again because of that vetting period. Home inspection Lifestyle chriteria.... interviews with your vet....

it would break my heart to be disallowed

4 inches of snow on top of an inch of ice and an additional two inches of snow.

4 inches of wet...soggy snow with my nets all on the ground under it....:hit.

@perchie.girl, I am so happy for you! I knew you could master this challenge. I knew you have the strength within you. So in short, I will simply say....

I have odd shaped runs so for the large areas I have heavy duty deer net. It seldom tears but it will break out at the hooks if enough weight gets on it. All I'll have to do is restretch it once it thaws out.

I also have some tied netting which I love but because of the weird shape of my run I have to piece them together. What I think gave way mostly was some net that was on it's last legs. Bought the CARP company direct from China and trust me it was no bargain. It's slated to be replaced this spring but I don't think it's going to make it that long.

Sometimes it's more about keeping the little idiots in more than keeping the hawks and owls out.
Sure hope it all goes well for you until you can get the new netting. :fl
