Greyhounds

I came across this on FB and just thought it summed up greyhounds so beautifully.

That is so lovely Lai and I hope it helps a lot of Greyhounds who are looking for a forever home who haven't been as lucky as Penny, Rosie and Kip. Lets also hope it changes peoples perceptions of Greyhounds and gets them to realise what amazing dogs they are. It's also a gorgeous picture isn't it I love you

I Agree  Littlewid, it is actually so true and really brings Sad  to my eyes reading it. If I had more time and was a lady of leisure I for sure would have a house full.

That is a lovely poem Lai  Thanks for sharing.

I think it's a good point about the non fluffiness, as this is what people often look for in a pet, and that yep, the greyhound doesn't have this.

But if you look deeper...

I will have to show it to Bellawoo later and change her perception Very Happy

Thats just brilliant Lai, thanks for passing it on, and it does really say everything about a lot of peoples misconceptions about Grehounds we absolutely love the ending.

Such a lovely poem Lai and absolutely spot on about Greyhounds.  They should have that poem up on the walls of all Greyhound Rescue places, enlarged and framed Cool  

A girl in my work had two rescues (one died a couple of years ago) and I know from both her and yourself they are a breed that are gentle, placid and easy to keep Very Happy
