Default I want one *so* bad.

With all the LC talk, and the sighthound talk, and the collar talk, I want a greyhound sooooo bad. I've been spending hours on greyhound forums that I can't join attempting to live vicariously through other people's Greys.

I can't afford one and I don't have room for one, but i *want* one!

*throws fit*

Lol, you too? I've been looking at them as well as all the other sighthounds again. (Thanks, Xerxes!)

Anyways, at least a year before I can even THINK of another dog and a lot depends on the apartment situation, etc.

There are a lot of them around here, all former racers. They seem to be amazingly laid back most of the time. A neighbor's dog recently ran King down to the point he laid down and wanted to go to sleep. That just doesn't happen.

My friend's wife is real involved in the rescue group here. We've done some benefits for them with the band.

Having the "room" for one is misleading. From everyone I've talked to, greys would rather sleep than anything else and they curl into a nice little ball doin so. I'll never be without a sighthound in my family again. They are too precious and too amazing-besides that they are hilariously funny-and will go to great lengths to get a laugh.

Yes, me too! lol
I already know where my next dog is coming from and it's not a grey, but I may foster for a local rescue.

LOL. The one's I dogsit for usually take a lap around the yard once or twice a day and they're good.

There are quite a few grey rescues around here, I just need to convince my mom to let me foster from one of them! lol

I've dogsat for a few, and most of them have done more sleeping than any other dogs I've seen. There's one grey I dogsit for that I swear, if he were any more laid back he'd be dead. The space thing is more about not having room in the car and not having a place to let a grey stretch it's legs (my dog's are all exercised off-leash in an unfenced area).
