Good lord - almost had a heart attack - Tikay - you have much to answer for.... :-)

For anyone who thinks rookie has suddenly developed a split personality - this is skrikera - at work - and unable to remove his profile from the blonde website on my computer - did that make sense? - Anyway - Tikay almost gave me, the heart attack...

Is this all part of Rookie's fantasy?

I did much the same..bought a pup by Whisper Wishes which we named Wishing for Gold. He had an underslung jaw, (kennel name Jaws),  and was deaf as it turned out. Trapped on sight of other dogs breaking so was always picking up. He had tremendous middle/late pace so won a few opens but never quite reached his potential.

We bought a second dog, ( confusingly a bitch), called Tally Ho Wish which was already racing at Wimbledon and got to the semi finals of the Oaks with her.

Point being..each month we put away enough to retire them both to a woman in Sussex who cared for retired Greyhounds. I beg you to do the same. There are thousands of Greyhounds each year which are 'done away with' when they reach the end of their 'useful' lives.

I've been considering this for a while as well, I quite fancy getting mysellf a greyhound.  How much you paying for this pup Rodders?

Another general point how much does it cost to train a greyhound?  What sort of disposable income is required?

The pup costs me 680 Euro. It will then cost, when it goes into training, somewhere between £40-£70 a week, not including any vets bills that may need to be paid.

Does it live with you or does the £40-70 per week include the dog having somewhere to live?

Includes having somewhere to live. It will be living with me from 12 weeks to approx 9 months. Then go off to training.

After having taken in some advice from other greyhound owners, they all tell us we should get Rodder's a companion. They will be able to play together and it will also help him a bit later in life when he hopefully goes to the track.

So, had a search, and purchased a bitch by Westmead Hawk and Droopy's Star. Hopefully both shall end up on the track in time. I am getting the bitch on Thursday and have already decided its kennel name to be 'Cassy' (Cassandra from O.F.A.H)

Now, what i need is a good name for Cassy if she goes to race... I want Rookie(s) in the beginning, who can think of some good ones?
