    I'm thinking along the same lines for when all my current littlies have gone to god - . I like the idea of being little old lady doddering around the neighbourhood with a couple of greys in tow. People will think I am quick and fast; they'll think my dogs are dangerous and no one will mess with me - LOL.

    I can't take my new pal until March, but that's okay because currently the wait for cat friendly dogs is around the 6 month mark so they suggested I register my interest now.

    Thanks again everyone! Now just a loooong 7 month wait!
    An excellent choice! Congrats!

    I did not know you have to wait 7months...is it because they have to be trained/rehabilitated for cats (and small dogs)?
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Yep. Most don't get along with cats (although apparently most are small dog friendly). So they have to train them to be friendly to all furry creatures!

    Wouldn't blame him if he arrived and didn't get along with my brothers cat though... that thing is mental.

    I've told a few 'friends' about my decision and I'm shocked to receive nothing but negativity!

    Everyone just comments on how greyhounds are 'ugly'!!!! They don't even care about how many get abandoned and need new homes.

    One girl actually said, 'I love ALL animals except greyhounds, they are disgusting, you disgust me for adopting one and I will never come over to visit you at your house if you get one.'

    HAHA! No worries there, clearly I will never be inviting her over to my house ever again. What a weirdo. Some people are so strange....

    Oh well, doesn't matter what they think, I think greyhounds are adorable, but personally I have never come across a dog I didn't think was cute.

    I personally don't think there really cute but if I saw one and loved its personality i would fall inlove and would think its the cutest thing in the world even if no one else did

    Good on you for picking to get one, people don't think about what happens to them once they can't race anymore

    I'm hoping once I get my doggie and he's settled in I can foster other greyhounds until they find new homes also. Probably just one at a time though!

    Greys are beautiful dogs; no I probably wouldn't use the word cute to describe them once they grow past 16 weeks old, but I would say they are sleek, elegant, graceful and a little bit goofy and there is nothing wrong with that.

    The first thing I find most people don't realise about greys (or Whippets) is how soft their fur is, how clean they are and how very little odour they have - bonus.

    Greyhounds are beautiful dogs. They are like the super models of the dog world. Tall and skinny.

    You are doing a great thing by adopting. We have an adopted grey hound x on our flyball team and he is just lovely!

    Tell your friends to keep their uninformed choices to themselves.

    Can’t wait to see pictures :-)

    What Mac said!! Most people look at me strangely when I tell them I love hounds but they are just such a sleek beautiful dog .

    Congratulations and thank you for saving another soul

    Their coats are so soft too. Skin is very easy to tear though.
    I went with a friend of mine to pick up a grey she was boarding. A little old lady owned her and the dog looked like the Queen of sheba reclining on her couch, front paws crossed and so regal.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
