Greyhounds

Dogs, not buses. Since 1995 greyhound dogs have been a part of my life. I photograph them, film them, and figure out how to live with them. Their stories follow.

  • Rocky’s 2021 Reunion (10/4/2021) - James River Greyhounds, our Eastern Virginia greyhound adoption charity held its 2021 picnic in early October. JRG placed a record 166 greyhounds in 2020. Including me.
  • Rocky’s First Beach Visit (9/27/2021) - Rocky and Missy take DW to the beach. It was Rocky's first visit and possibly his first close encounters of the third kind with children. We all survived.

  • “I came for good” (5/5/2021) - "I came for good" I like that. It's punny. but I must attribute it to Ms bonesnorah@twitter. Although I ran well and knew all my track knowledge, I knew nothing about living in a home with a loose dog and loose idiot. Oy Vey

  • Camp Dismal Meal Plan (5/13/2020) - Is Rocky still on track time? Or is he just a manipulative little monster? We're trying to figure out what is going on with the 0400 meal. Because he can apparently. Read to learn how he made the switch to Camp Dismal hours.
