Greyhound facts:

Greyhounds can spot a moving object up to a half-mile away and will more than likely give chase. And when in chase, greyhounds are unlikely to respond to an owner’s calls.  Which is why they should never be allowed outdoors unsecured.   Leashes and well-fenced yards are necessary for keeping greyhounds safe.

All greyhounds alive today are descended from a dog called King Cob, who lived in the 1700s.
Fredrick the Great of Prussia asked in his will to be buried with his beloved greyhounds - the graves remain today.
Greyhounds are the only breed of dog mentioned in the Bible. (Proverbs 30:29-31 KJV)
Greyhounds come in 19 different primary colors and more than 55 color combinations.
Greyhounds came to the New World in 1493 on Columbus’s second expedition.
Greyhounds are mentioned or featured in 11 of Shakespeare’s plays.

 “45 mile-an-hour couch potatoes” and very quiet, very low-key, a loyal companion best describe them.   They could be fat dogs, as lazy as they are.   But instead, the ex-racing dogs have thin, graceful frames. Greyhounds expend a great deal of energy on walks or brief runs (they can reach speeds of up to 45 mph in just three strides). Then they’re tuckered out and ready to sleep for most of the day… on a cushy bed…sort of like big cats.  They’re very clean, with little doggie odor.  Shedding is minor and some people with allergies have found that they can live with the greyhounds without problems.

Because ex-racers are raised in kennels around packs of other dogs and handlers, greyhounds are generally well-socialized. They are likely to follow their owner everywhere.  And because they are so friendly they make poor guard dogs.

Greyhounds are for the most part indoor dogs. Their thin coats and minimal body fat make them sensitive to heat (they do not sweat) and the cold (if you’re cold, they probably are too).   Snuggling up on the couch or in bed is a favorite pastime.

 

Cinderella’s Life:

 After a fulfilling life with the now dead prince, she happily sits upon her rocking chair, watching the world go by from her front porch, with her old Greyhound named Bob for companionship.
One sunny afternoon out of nowhere, appeared the fairy godmother.  Cinderella said, "Fairy Godmother, what are you doing here after all these years?" 

The fairy godmother replied, "Cinderella, you have lived an exemplary life since I last saw you.  Is there anything for which your heart still yearns?"
Cinderella was taken aback, overjoyed, and after some thoughtful consideration, she uttered her first wish: "The prince was wonderful, but not much of an investor.  I'm living hand to mouth on my disability checks, and I wish I were wealthy beyond comprehension. Instantly her rocking chair turned into solid gold.
Cinderella said, "Ooh, thank you, Fairy Godmother"
The fairy godmother replied, "It is the least that I can do. What do you want for your second wish?"
Cinderella looked down at her frail body, and said, "I wish I were young and full of the beauty and youth I once had."  At once, her wish became reality, and her beautiful young visage returned. Cinderella felt stirrings inside of her that had been dormant for years.
And then the fairy godmother spoke once more: "You have one more wish; what shall it be?"
Cinderella looks over to the frightened dog in the corner and says, "I wish for you to transform Bob, my old Greyhound, into a kind and handsome young man."  Magically, Bob suddenly underwent so fundamental a change in his biological make-up that, when he stood before her, he was a man so beautiful the likes of him neither she nor the world had ever seen.

The fairy godmother said, "Congratulations, Cinderella, enjoy your new life."   With a blazing shock of bright blue electricity, the fairy godmother was gone as suddenly as she appeared.  For a few eerie moments, Bob and Cinderella looked into each other's eyes.  Cinderella sat, breathless, gazing at the most beautiful, stunningly perfect man she had ever seen.  Then Bob walked over to Cinderella, who sat transfixed in her rocking chair, and held her close in his young muscular arms.  He leaned in close, blowing her golden hair with his warm breath as he whispered...

"Bet you're sorry you neutered me."
