I have 2 greyhounds which are #3 and 4, plus a whippet, also adopted from my greyhound rescue group #5. My first was a healthy boy who died after a dental. The vet was a greyhound "expert" used by many in our group... but not by me any more. I lost my second to complications of ehrlichia and anaplasma... damn ticks at the track!

Several of mine were also "failed fosters" so I'm not fostering again, I get too attached.

We currently have 2 greyhounds, a boy and a girl. They are greyhounds #3 & 4. Our first grey had a seizure, fell into our pool, and died. Our second greyhound died from osteosarcoma. We, too, have fostered and usually fail at it. We also sit for a friend when she needs to leave her greys.

Currently, I have two girls aged 5 & 6. They are greyhounds #3 & 4. My first two were big boys, who lived full post-retirement lives.

Like Shelley, I have also fostered. Over a period of 8 years, I fostered almost 40 greyhounds. Wow! Of those, I managed to get three of my favorites adopted by friends of mine. :D

Now, I am on hiatus from fostering for a while. However, I am very active as a volunteer with Greyhounds of Fairhaven, which is a PR group that promotes adoption of retired racers, although they do not handle the adoptions themselves. We're the friend & support to all the area adoption groups.

I currently have one greyhound and one non-greyhound. I also have one greyhound that I watch for a friend of mine whenever she goes out of town. However she just got a great job offer in NY so I guess those days of babysitting for her will be over:(

"I'm a running contradiction....I am a runner and I am lazy. I know that running allows me to enjoy my down time to a greater level. I am a runner first, lazy second. For me, these aren't mutually exclusive terms. Without one, I couldn't enjoy the other."

Thank you so much Bob Schwartz (I Run, Therefore I Am- Nuts!) for this lovely, funny insight into my life.

I looked through the discussion history and didn't see anything like this. How many hounds do you have?

I have three we've adopted, and usually also have a foster. My 3 current hounds are came here as fosters. After the first two "failures", I served 3 years as foster co-coordinator for my greyhound group. I've fostered about 35 dogs in the last 4 years. I've learned more about dogs than I ever would have if I'd had just one.
