Treacle - Greyhound

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you all so very much for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my image of Coco the Miniature Poodle which I uploaded yesterday. A further thank you goes to; Pentaxpatty (Patricia), BRITICHIE (Bernie) and Accipter (Arthur) for their User Awards.

Today's images of of a beautiful former racing Greyhound called Treacle.

Greyhound Dog Temperament

Known as "the world's fastest couch potato," the Greyhound is quiet, calm and extremely well-mannered indoors. They are good with other dogs, and with other pets if raised with them; outdoors, they tend to chase any small thing that moves. They are very sensitive and sometimes timid. Despite their independent nature, they are eager to please.

Greyhound Dog Care

The Greyhound needs daily exercise, but he is a sprinter, not an endurance runner. His needs can thus be met with a chance to run, or by a longer walk on leash. He loves to run and chase outdoors, and can easily run into danger at great speed unless exercised in a safe area. He is not amenable to living outdoors. Greyhounds relish creature comforts and must have soft bedding and warmth. The coat is extremely easy to care for, needing only occasional brushing to remove dead hair.

I hope that you all have a fantastic day whatever you may be getting up to. As for me I have a few chores to do before I can sit back and enjoy the sun in the garden.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Beautifully done Nathan. I assume with a name like Treacle he didn't win many races.
