Hey everybody!

My husband and I just got married in June, moved to Oregon in July and adopted our FIRST greyhound two weeks ago! He was a retired racer named Raider Mocha (we call him Hermes now). He's a big lovely white and brindle boy! He did really well at the races, but quit after just 7 races which we suspect is due to an injury. Our adoption agency is looking into this, and that's probably why he has a persistent limp.

My husband and I are both active and in our mid-20's and Hermes is our first dog of our own. I'm currently working on a distance education degree so I'm home with the needlenose most of the time while my husband works. Our hound joined our pack of 3 cats, ourselves, and my college buddy who is rooming with us :)

We're very new to greyhounds and having a dog of our own--we've done a lot of research, but as some of you I'm sure have experienced--knowing and doing are sometimes very different things! We're figuring out Hermes just as much as he's figuring out us, so you'll probably see tons of questions pop up here (there's already one in hound 911 about personality development, etc. if you'd like to take the time to contribute your firsthand knowledge of this delightful breed for our benefit).

I'll admit to a little bit of 'killing the baby' syndrome (with Hermes being the baby) so I can be hyper-aware of problems that aren't necessarily even problems!! I'd love to hear about all of your first experiences with the breed, both from the show ring and off the track!!
