I know ya'll have all been following Thurles' thread since I committed to him on 9/11/2010 (ironically it was his birthday).
So Monday 11/21/2011 he retired after coming in 5th in his only Grade D race. Talk about being obedient, I told him don't do better than 5th in the post parade & he listened. he he he
I got the call to come get him at 2:52pm on Wednesday, much to my surprise...and until about 5pm, the afternoon was a blurr! I'm so glad it is a 4 day holiday.
He is perfect. I've had alot of greyhounds in all these years and lately I am either fostering or now own a perfect, first timer, greyhound. I think anyone could adopt him & he would be perfect for them. Even racing as long as he has, he's cat safe.
So here is the very first picture ever that I had of him....

This was taken the Saturday after I had said I'd take him, ironically wearing my favorite #8.
Here is one I took this afternoon, retired & relaxed.

This has been just a really great journey with him. He's easy to love.

Yesterday was the first day I left him out with the others & he did perfect. Wow...who would've thought he'd go from the track to the vet to the home & be perfect.
The first few nights, he slept on the carpeted area near the bathroom, then all of a sudden the other night I turned on the light about 2:30am, and there he was on one of the dog beds on my side of the bedroom. It warmed my heart so much.
Yesterday, I got home & he joined in the crowd at the baby gate! Hooping, hollering, squeels of glee. I let everyone outside & he & Smiley did some laps & came back inside.
:bitchilly Its cold here, so he's enjoying this weather. Of course its dark when I get home, so I'm looking forward to Saturday, letting him outside & I thought I'd sit outside with him for a while.
This is going to be a fantastic Christmas for sure. :frosty_1: :TKu_1: :xmastree_1: :happyholidays_1: :claus_1: :seasongreetings: :chtree_1: :santasleigh_1: :lights_1: :greeting_1: :hi_1: :

He discovered & met the barking dogs that live behind us. I've never heard Thurles bark, so I was hoping he'd join them, but he didn't. He also got to hear the sirens that come on at noon. he he he
He's doing really good. :blkgrey: :TKu_1:

Thurles has discovered if he barks, the dogs behind us bark back. He is hilarious. He has really been enjoying the backyard. He runs several laps around the yard in the evening & mornings.
