Downsizing

by Brenda
(Gateshead)

I have always had greyhounds until I adopted Ozzie 5yrs ago.

I didn't really want a whippet as I wasn't ready after having to have one of my greyhounds put to sleep but as my local rescue centre kept asking me when I was going to take another sighthound I said it as a joke and guess what, a whippet came in a week later.

My last greyhound had to be put to sleep. This was a big shock.He was a wonderful boy and never could be replaced.

Then another whippet came in, Rosie she is very naughty but funny and keeps me on my toes.

Ozzie, now six, has turned into a minnie Gus, my last greyhound.

I love my sighthounds they are so special.
