I got the idea from another greyhound owner who lives in Boston, she goes walking with a group of owners once a month & has a really great time. So I went to the adoption group's Facebook page & put a note on there. Only a handful of people came, but it was alot of fun. It was Thurles' official outing since retirement & he was just so curious about everything. Here's some pictures that were taken.
Everyone saying hello, checking IDs. Thats Smiley right there in front.

Me, Smiley & Thurles posing. I always want a picture of me with my dogs & it seems like nobody just takes one, I always have to ask. But no one told me to put a muzzle on the hair!!! ha ha ha

Then we went walking. Thurles just saw so many different things, and he'd actually keep walking but look to see where the different looking people & dogs went. He met a Golden Retriever & an English Bulldog named Joy. Saw some little squeeky dogs too, but I didn't let him get too close to them. ha ha ha

Then after about 2 miles, an hour later, we said our goodbyes.

And on the way home, Thurles hung his head out the window while Smiley slept.

We had 2 black greyhounds: Thurles & Smiley, 2 fawn: Sylvie & Lance, 1 brindle: Poppy & a brindle & white named Olive.

Thanks....I like it too. I didn't think about wiping the mirror off. He just stood so quiet & hung his head out & enjoyed the cool air. Made me wonder if in his mind, he was racing again.
Its funny how when we get them, they're like 5 yr old puppies.
