I love the greyhounds. They run alongside? I've tried that but I feel awkward at it.

Here are my greyhounds. We had to put Red down a couple of years ago. He's the big one on the left. Waffle (on the right) is still with us. She's a lovely, silent girl. She barked for her first and only time this month, and she's ten years old.

Bike tires can be used to make belts. Go to and search for bicycle tire belts and you can see how some people have done this. You can also find tutorials on how to make belts out of bicycle tires. You can find the info here.
That's an unique idea...
