Adopted brindle greyhound and a half-baked beagle. Mutt & Jeff. Or the Bell Twins, Ding & Dong; Or, Pete and Repeat. Add in the damn cat and you have eeney meeney miney and I hope there ain't no mo'!
Beagle funny as hell and sweet with that sad face...when she's not excreting on the kitchen floor for not getting what she wants. high maintenance but wouldn't trade her for the world. Hogs the covers at night and snores like a chainsaw. Barks at anything and everything just for practice. How come dogs don't get headaches from all that barking? Man, I do and so do my neighbors.
The rescued greayhound had to learn how to be a dog. Those SOBs at the tracks are the ones that should be exterminated--not the dogs. Your punishment for losing races is death. She is built like a deer and skiddish like a deer. Like others said, they are world class couch potatoes. She looks up at you with those sad brown eyes that melt you. When tearing up the backyd with the beagle cutting across the infield to keep up, she always runs clockwise. I say she's just unwinding after her racing career. Retired at 4 y/o, she was fast! Still amazing to watch. No odors, little shedding, never an accident in the house. Sweetest dog in the world. Glad we saved at least one.
I don't mean to be gullible but your comment about the ones that lose and their fate...are you serious and know, or are you blowing smoke, because I haven't heard of that?
