Hi.. I had one minature greyhound she was given to me and I had her 5 months and I got so attached to her and she loved my cat. She was so much fun but she kind of disappeared and I walked all over town searching and calling for her but didn't find her and a guy heard me calling for her and he asked me what kind of dog it was. I told him he said a man came by with a dog on his with a purple collar that looked like a greyhound that was hit by a car but I didn't believe him cause he told me where she was hit and it was right from where I lived and I would had heard it and I will always believe if he picked her up right at the road where I lived why didn't he come around and ask anybody if the dog belong to me or someone else here? There are only three on this street. But it broke my heart not knowing either way so I cried so much I got sick and had to go to the er but once I got back home the next day I got online and looked up minature greyhounds and found one in Ark. I bought her immediately, the lady said she would be put on a flight and she would be at airport in the afternoon so I was happy and I went to the airport went inside and told the guy at the counter what I was expecting and he said ok and he said the flight was delayed 30 minutes. So I went outside to watch the planes and then when I saw the plane coming in with Penny on it I got all excited with tears in my eyes and went rushing in the airport after I figured they had time for the luggage to come off and went to the counter and the guy said I am sorry but they were no pets on that flight. I broke down then he said please I'm sorry don't cry I got your little dog and he brought her out and it was so amazing to see her. When I got her to the truck I took out the carrier and held her all the way home and never let go of her and still today I hold her and play with her. She was 14 weeks old when I got her and she is now 5 years. Born August 18 and I wouldn't trade her for anything. I am an animal lover and when something bad happens to one I have or had it breaks my heart bad, like a part of me was taken too. I have lost many in the past. I had two cats from the lynx family with no tails, I had a brother and sister. My fluffy passed in 2007 when I was in Morroco and it was so sad cause I wasn't here but his brother is now 18 and he's slow but he is still doing good. I love my animals and they have anything they want and they are very well taken care of. Penny is now laying right against me at this moment we did our playing and she is resting and I'm on the computer but she is loved. She is truly amazing, I love her to pieces. Sorry I wrote so much but sometimes I get carried away about animals and I have my bearboy and penny girl now. They are my heart next to my two daughters too, which are grown and on their own so it is me and my bearboy and penny girl here now.

    The source of this photo is Wiki Commons. If you want to contact the author, try going to that site. It appears that this photo was uploaded in 2007 though, so I am not sure how much luck you will have proving this is your dog?

I agree. My italian greys love anything that don't get them first. I have 3 adults and 2, 4 month olds that I have the mom and pop too. I also have 1 rescue grey off the track. It is great to see my big male think he is their mama and hold them down to clean their ears. I have great fun with all my greys and they are the best dogs I have ever had. The 2 pups are a hand full at the present time but, will get better, would not trade them for anything.

Keep your greyhound on a leash.. My dog got off my wrist on accident and took off at 30 to 40 mph down the street out of sight... up 6 blocks one way and then back 1 mile the other direction down a 6 lane street. Many cars stopped to help me catch her. She was fine thank god, but her paws were raw and her nails down to the nerves. It was truly traumatizing to me and the dog. I now buckle her to my belt around my waist.

    My Pyrenes did that to me and it looked like a giant white fur running thing going down with the cars through 2 lanes of traffic. Not fun and she was on a leash but it just broke.

I would like to bring to your attention that avacados are poisonous to dogs. I read so in the petfinder.com Adopted Dog Bible. I have seen that also on many other websites. Please remove the section where it says that they are ok, as you may be causing people's pets to fall ill.

    Thanks KC for your good suggestion, and the info has been corrected on the page!

    I beg to differ with you regardless of the source. I have a five acre avocado ranch and my dogs as well as neighborhood dogs eat fallen avocados on a regular basis with no ill effects with the exception of a little weight gain if I let them eat too many. Now if I could just get them to pick them and put them in the bins, I'd be all set!

    I love my dog and avocados. My italian greyhound is my first dog. He is not allergic to avocados, and actually enjoys them.
