My Greyhound is learning to talk and doing a good job of it. So far he has taught me when to feed him, let him out into the garden and time to go for a walk. As if that isn't enough; he tells me he needs a treat and he has just developed the ability to declare 'bedtime' for the family.

A brilliant breed, they rarely bark, love other dogs and manage to sleep 23 hours a day and then cram all the essentials like walk, poo, p and eat into one hour. So they are very efficient time managers too :lol: :lol:

Greyhounds make very good pets as you say but one of my favourite breeds is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqAI1H2mjvU

Our Greyhounds are ex racing dogs who are normally 'retired' at aged 3 - 4. They are hard work at first because they don't have the domestic skills like going outside for a P&P and they mostly do not know how to play. Even now after 7 years Ben is not able to understand the idea of retrieving a thrown ball. Even so, once they understand that they are free and have a comfortable 'kennel' - otherwise known as a 4 bed house - they soon settle in.

Contrary to popular belief Greyhounds do not require long walks. Just 2 x 20 minute walks a day is all they need although they will go further if asked. They do not have good recall and the general advice is not to let them off lead. Sadly they only live for around 13 years so our mission in life is to make their time with us as good as it can be.

Sorry for going on :wasntme:

Not at all Alan only too pleased to read of some-one who is devoted in giving the greyhound a comfortable and loving retirement.

There used to be an elderly gentleman who often passed our home walking his greyhound, he got it from a rescue kennel after the dog had been 'retired', so to speak.

I remember how very quiet his dog was and always allowed me to stroke him with no backing away, he told me what you have written, and he also could never take him off the lead but they do make excellent pets.

Nigel.
