I am always amazed at how my greys sleep. Crafty sleeps in a variety of ways throughout the night. She side sleeps, roaches, belly sleeps. She even does location changes from her bed to another bed to beside me. I would include a photo but I have a computer failure happening. Hopefully you have photos to share. You can choose up to five options in the poll too.
In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog. ~Edward Hoagland

Thunder mostly does the side sleep but rarely all on his pillow. Usually his head, shoulders and front legs are off. He also does a lot of active dreaming. I'll try and add a photo later! I hope your computer starts behaving!

Usually Trip sleeps half on, half off his bed. I don't know why since he can fit his whole body on his bed. I have seen him sleep while roaching and he does do a lot of active dreaming (legs twitching and woofing). This morning I came downstairs and he had his head under his blanket. He must not have heard/seen me because I scared him when I said his name.
Boaz starts neatly on his pillow, but he won't settle down until he is 'tucked in'. He waits until he is covered by his Scooby-Doo blanket and then rolls onto his side with a happy sigh. Ozzie paces for ages, refusing to settle until Boaz is asleep. He then climbs on top of Boaz and flops around into the weirdest positions possible. He'll often sleep on top of Boaz, with his head under the pillows. Both boys seem to like it, so we just let them have at it at bed time!

I will try to get a pic of Wyn in her newest position...on her back, but not quite in a roach, laying against my front door, with her head hanging off the step and resting on the floor...super funny, but she changes position when she hears me get the camera

This is my favourite picture of Roonie, sound asleep...

Booker so far seems to like to sleep in a 3/4 roach - his back legs straight up, and his front legs flopped out to one side. Much like Trip, he is usually half off his cushion, even though it's not hard to fit all of him on it.
echandler: Hello, is anyone in the London are interested in organizing a greyhound only play date? I find it hard to meet fellow greyhound owners in the area and my 2 girls love to play with other hounds

adoragrey: That is a great idea!!! I have a 4 yr old greyt boy who also loves to play. And I know there are other greyt parents who would also enjoy it. Please post the date here and I will let you know if I can attend.

lovehounds: Hi! I am new here but over the past year have been reading and viewing everything I can find about greyhounds. Also enjoy seeing people's posts/photos of their beautiful dogs. I am recovering from surgery and once I am well I want very much to adopt! ☺💖

misscarlotta: So happy to see new pups. Wish I could take 1 or more, but I have to keep working 14 hours a day to support my adult children.

pengoowin: I am a newbie when it comes to the breed, are greys good with disabled adults. Are they skittish with wheelchairs?
May 27, 2017 10:02:51 GMT -5
Heather (& KC): Hi pengoowin! It truly depends on the dog and Heather Main would help you identify the right dog for you. I have seen some with their human in a wheelchair. 🙂

padeschamps: I am new here, trying to absorb as much info as possible to see if a greyhound would be right for our family. I've done the puppy phase with the doggies I now own. And I am so interested in the rescue of older dogs to find their new forever homes.

padeschamps: What I am having a hard time finding out, is the cost for the adoption of a greyhound. And what screening process do you have to go through. And how long is the adoption process generally
Aug 6, 2017 1:19:33 GMT -5
Heather (& KC): Hi Padeschamps! Welcome. Contact Heather Main. Her email and phone number are at the top of this board! These dogs aren't rescues but retired racers who are ready to start home life! Good luck!
