My Project 365 - 25

Not sure where today has gone, any ideas? But it's gotten run to this time and i still hadn't taken an image for today. I did miss a corker of a shot at work today, but was up on some scaffold and my camera was in the van 3 floors below, still never mind.

Anyway i've managed to get a shot and here it is.


Meet Fred, one of our incredible sleeping machines or to put it another way a Greyhound. A breed which i think is very misunderstood, all though there does seem to be more about as pets these days or it could be i just notice them as we have some.

They are the most gentle and, quite frankly bone idle, breed you'll ever some across, the best description i've heard was "A 40mph couch potato!". I think some of the problem could be that people percieve them as a hunting dog, so wouldn't live well with cats, rabbits etc, however there are many that do live happily side by side with them. The other thing i think is people see a race dog, therefore they need a lot of exercise..wrong, they are a sprint dog, designed to be fast over a short distance. If we take ours for a run on the beach for half an hour, when they get home they will not move from their beds.

They also quite remarkable, holding the title as 2nd fastest land mammal after the Cheetah. Both are masters of the double suspenson gait, but what give a Cheetah the edge, is it's more flexible spine and it's semi retractable claw, which basically means it has running spikes. Follow this linky thing to find out a little more.

And This one for more about the beautiful breed.
