    I love how those greyhounds look racing. Wow! They're really muscley. (why isn't there a word for muscley?) They're gorgeous!



    B and T...don't tell us how to run our forum, thank you very much.

    You didn't. Excuse me. Barb did. But it seems you're both unhappy here and seem to support and condone the action (or inaction) of someone who starves her dog. This is a forum of dog lovers. We're just not into any kind of mistreatment of animals.

    I'm quite happy here, I enjoy reading the threads and I'm learning some new stuff as well, especially about different dogs breeds which is nice.

    Well then...that's terrific. Maybe you'll also learn about satisfactory ways to feed and nurture puppies and what a healthy puppy looks like.

    Pretty much this. Yeah...

    I posted earlier that if Teal is indeed mentally unstable, now it the time to really keep even more of an eye out. Barbara and TahlzK, maybe you should be putting effort in to contacting your friend and trying to help her get help instead of so much effort in to denying, excusing and condoning indefensible behavior on her part?

    Man... and here I was so enjoying the sighthound pictures...

    Aren't they though? It's enough to make me throw caution to the wind and forget every reason I wouldn't want a hound. There are soooo many good things about them. But on the other hand.....I can't run fast enough to catch one if it runs off after something. lol.

    I have an unhealthy obsession with whippets. The rest of the sight hounds just don't do it for me like they do.

    But the breeder of the puppy in question HAS seen his condition, and there's people on this forum who know the breeder personally. The breeder has provided both photos and vet reports on the pup's condition upon getting him back to back them up. Teal has had NOTHING to back her up, and when she came on to defend herself, she blatantly avoided questions. I get she's your friend, and that you're trying to be loyal to her, but it's easy to see why everyone is so upset. Because this IS the internet, and it's so easy to hide your true colors.

    If Frodo didn't have such a ridiculous hatred for the breeds I would so get a Grey. I think if he would stop sipping so much haterade he would really enjoy the company of a calm, collected Grey. I think they would compliment each other nicely.

    I was involved with a greyhound rescue years ago, retired racers... They stole my heart! I was on a wait list and went up to the city a couple times a month to visit (3 hour drive!) and was not far from getting a dog....

    But, we made the decision to move here to Ontario and as heartbreaking as it was I couldn't bring a new dog into such a disruptive environment....
