A couple of days ago I visited a friend and met a new acquaintance in the shape of a beautiful greyhound, namely Brian. I had heard about this new dog from my friend who had recently lost their old dog Lucy, also a greyhound but with lurcher in her. Lucy was a sweet dog with such lovely eyes and such intelligence you thought she could read your mind. My friends went for some weeks saying “no more dogs” and then “well, maybe a whippet would be nice” until I received the “we’ve got a dog” phonecall! So on Friday I was summoned to meet ‘the dog’ who had been described as being very large, white and pink with no brains plus a Gaelic name no one could pronounce let alone remember. Barely had I arrived than I was greeted by the most handsome greyhound I have ever seen, white and pink he was not, but black and white with a lovely dappling between the patches of black and his face was just gorgeous, I think it was love at first sight!
He is so gentle and elegant and looks as though he should be in a medieval tapestry or stretched out infront of a huge yawning fireplace in a baronial hall. Brian is a rescued greyhound and at only three years old and having failed to win races for his former owner, he found himself at a greyhound rescue centre, but now his life has turned around and he has got his second chance and I think he has definitely won this time, as he settles into family life with my friend.
