This is my boy (un-named),,,,,uh,,,,, 62E. :D

We'll start finishing him late this summer, I hope to see him racing at Derby Lane in the fall.

Till then I'm just watching the litter grow and enjoying the journey.

I got a page full of names but haven't narrowed it down to 3. Since he's the "E" dog I'm thinking "Eddie" as a call name.

It's wonderful being able to go to the farm and watch the litter grow. I got to hold him while he was tattooed, I held all the pups in that litter for tattooing.

That is cool. That's what we did with Paisley. Watch her grow up as a pup, race and now retired.
Enjoy it, it's cool and we love to see lots of pictures.

We went to the farm this afternoon to get some photos, since he's the "E"dog I decide to call him "Eddy". He is just shy of 6 months old.

Funny you should ask about Eddy,,,,,

His big adventure began at 0530 on Sat morning when I picked him for a 2 hour ride to Jacksonville to watch some NOTRA racing. It was a wonderfull opportunity for him to meet many people, dogs, walk a Greyhound training track, smell a starting box and MOST importantly HEAR and SEE a rail lure!!!
The day was filled with "first" tooooooo many to list, he performed well a every task or goal.
The old saying a "tired puppy is a GOOD puppy,,,,,, he slept the entire trip back to the farm..... GOOD PUPPY !!!! :D

Photos are still downloading and being prepared, I hope later today or this evening I be able to post a few of his "big adventure" .
Walking around seeing the sights and sounds

LOL His life will be fairly dull now till this summer when we start to finish him. I plan to take the litter to the sprint field in the "dog trailer" once week for some free running & play. Maybe in June I'll start box training using a lunge pole with a lure just to get them to run out of the box (no turns).
It maybe Aug before he starts running on the Whirly Gig and then the track, I don't think he'll leave the farm till late Oct or early Nov.
His registration should be arriving any day now,,,,,,,, waiting.

I took Eddy to the Whirly Gig so I could use a starting box for some [very] basic box training. He's keen for a lure so I used lunge whip with a lure so I could drape the lure in front of the box from behind. Held Eddy at the back of a open box so he would walk thru the box to get to the lure. After 4 or 5 passes thru the box I put him back on a lead while leaving the lure on the ground and started to take him back to the truck,,,,,, he turned and went onto the box!!!!! :D :D :D
