Romeo is a 5 1/2 year old dark brindle greyhound, happily retired from the racetrack. He lives with three cats (also rescues) and they all tolerate each other…well, most of the time. As a rescue, Romeo has his quirks, most small, some large, but is the best dog-friend a single girl like me could want.
Romey (his nickname) is a working dog still, of sorts, and is an office dog/greeter/mascot. He loves the job, especially the long naps that it normally entails. Romey and I lived on Catalina Island for 2 and a half years and have recently moved to the mainland or as I prefer to call it, the Land of Plenty, in the Santa Barbara area. And in our new home he continues his role as Office Dog Extraordinaire.
Romey and I get questions about greyhounds (aka: greys) every time we’re out in public. There’s lots of confusion and questions about what they’re like as pets and we’re happy to oblige. Hey…we hope that maybe someone will want to adopt one after meeting him and hearing about what great dogs they are.
So, we thought we’d share our adventures with whomever cares to read them. Boats, cats, alpacas, horses and more. And we’ll share about the history of greyhounds as a breed, what happens to them on the track and how they adapt to life as adored and spoiled pets.
So stay tuned for …more Adventures with a Greyhound!
