A typical day after work for KT

Hey dad....you're finally home. How was the ride?


What do you mean why was the office door open?


Wanna play? Grab one of the stuffed animals and throw it for me.


No...not Bunny Foo Foo....we are sick of him.

The story would continue, but this is the point in which they've successfully eaten your soul and destroyed you with their eye lasers.

I don't do caps, I don't know where Catford is, and they are Greyhounds, no whippets.

They are closet smokers and KT came home early so they laid on top of them to put them out.


OMG. My mind is warped. I've been hanging around Foo too much.

Closet smokers to help control their weight. They're afraid they'll gain if they stop smoking

I know. Verily 'twas in jest and one does hope no afront was taken.

Catford - such a nice area

flat cap - up the proles

Now if I could just remember which comedian(s) did the "South London Whippet Fancier" sketch...

None was taken...I thought maybe you honestly didn't know.

When I lived in FL, Greyhounds were more common because there were a lot of tracks. Here in Washington, dog tracks are illegal, thus Greyhounds are not nearly as common. Whippets are more common around here than Greyhounds. I have had MANY people ask me, "Are those Whippets? Those sure are big for Whippets.".

I've heard that so much, I thought maybe you honestly thought they were Whippets.

I looked into rescuing a retired racing greyhound, but we don't have a fenced in yard and the agencies around here won't adopt out a greyhound to a house without a fence. Pitty, they are great dogs.

yeah...many of the groups are quite fussy about that. I was living in an apartment when I inquired, but was planning to move to a rental house with fenced yard. Greyhounds are still "hounds" and have that potential to run off after "prey" (the prey drive is in ANY hound), so a fence is kind of important with any hound dog.

I certainly understand the logic with regards to fences with Greyhounds being sight hounds. Still sucks though, great dogs. If our yard wasn't such an odd shape we'd put in a fence. The problem is if we put in a fence our backyard will shrink considerably. Or we follow the property line and have fence that looks like a drunk person installed it.

Yeah.....that's a bummer because they really are awesome dogs.
