Old Greyhound: Vancouver, BC

Old Greyhound

Almost all Greyhounds, in my area, are rescued from US and Mexican racing tracks, this one is no exception. She must have been injured because she had a slight limp.

Once, I tried to adopt a greyhound from the local greyhound rescue. I was denied because I was not good enough! The two ladies that interviewed us where shocked and outraged that I wouldn’t let the dog …

This pitbull is almost all black, except for the couple of white spots.

Dog running and catching the ball at Hadden Park, Vancouver, BC

This dog was running after the ball at Hadden Park, Vancouver, British Columbia. Not only he had to catch it, he also had to brake to turn around before the pit and go back to the person that threw the ball.

BTW, as you can see I’m slightly below the dog. There’s a gras field, the dog …
