You need to drop a few kg mate, maybe a bit of xc riding
Looking flash with the bucket over his head.This was my dog. His name was Frank. He was a fucking legend.
I put him down about two years ago. It was the most awful day of my life.
I keep his collar & tag hanging in my workshop and every now & then I pause to look at it and smile.
I can't explain how much I miss him sometimes.View attachment 351236

Haha yeah, The Cone of Shame is pretty hilarious after a vet visit.Looking flash with the bucket over his head.
Had a dog down the road with the thing on his head, I nick named him "ol bucket head" the owner git dirty over the name,
Yeah, he's a greyhound too. He's 5 and still exhibits a strong prey drive. Hopefully he calms down as he gets older, and I know I don't have to rush and make a reactionary decision now, but it just plays on your mind these sorts of things. I could never trust him with a baby or even a puppy.Is Dash also a greyhound ?
It’s one of those ‘catch it’ breeds that, whilst they can be trained well, you just always have a little bit of concern with kids around.
No need to make any decisions until you have kids and the first one become mobile though. Our staffy was full of beans until he was about 7/8 but luckily by the time the kids arrived he was worn out and old. Cops a hell of a time from the kids now the old bastard and just takes it, but he earned it I say.
Unfortunately greyhounds have a hide as thick as paper.We had a crazy day taking Pippa, one of our greyhounds, to the vet for stitches again. They saw a small dog walk past the front yard and Dash got excited. He then bit Pippa on the back tearing a flap of skin clean off. We had another incident a few months ago where we came home to find Pippa with a massive gash on her back. Now I'm beginning to wonder if that was also caused by the other dog.
We adopted Dash a year ago and he is a great dog otherwise but I'm beginning to realize he might just not be suited to living with other dogs. I don't want him to attack her again and I certainly can't afford $500 for stitches every time his prey drive takes over and he lashes out. I don't think its compatible with having a family in the next few years either. So I'm not really sure what to do.
