I guess about 3 1/2 months ago my friend Cheryl who has some racing & retired greyhounds & I were talking. I told her about my beloved Gogh & how much I missed him, and I told her about Dear & Bool...all 3 of them black. I told her about how much I adore the black greyhounds. To that she said I've got just the one for you, his name is Thurles. He's black, he's fixing to be 4 yrs old. AA racer for the kennel she worked for. Well a few months went by & I wanted to make sure she was serious so I asked her about Thurles again. She said yeah, Ed even asked her the other day if she had found him a home & she said yes. So I went over to Greydata & checked him out....gorgeous!
Ironically, Cheryl & I took a black greyhound to Missouri for him to be sent on up to Minnesota. His name was Count. It gave her a chance to tell me all about Thurles & interesting enough, that day was 9/11 & that was also Thurles 4th birthday.
The following weekend he raced, so I made a trip to Southland & met him. Ohmygoodness. Cheryl took some pictures of him for me & made me some prints along with sending them to me. I met his owner Ed Mullens & he was so glad to meet the person who would give Thurles a home when he finished racing. Ed said it could be a week, it could be a year. Right now he's still running good, he's interested in running & hasn't lost that yearn for racing. So...here he is.

Thanks everyone. I talked again with Ed last night, he smiled warmly when I said that I already have pictures of Thurles on my desk at work & on my cell phone. My friend Rachel came to the track last night & took pictures of Thurles racing & got a great shot of him crossing the finish line. Fantastic. When she sends them to me, I'll be sure & post them.
I'm very excited. Although I know he's probably got at least one more year of racing, especially after watching him last night take that lead & never waiver. He's got alot of heart.

My friend Rachel took some pictures of Thurles racing on Friday night & here they are. Gosh he takes my breath away.

Post parade, he didn't know I was standing on the rail.

Then I was cheering him on to victory. Here he is at the finish line!

He's got to where when he sees me after the races, he comes to me...that just warms my heart.
I didn't get to be at the track today, so he came in near last. I think the sun was in his eyes. he he he
Well bless his heart, he got alittle sick last week & even though he was eating & feeling good, he raced but you could tell he wasn't 100%. I missed his race because I was on my way home from work, but I watched the replay on Trackinfo & I could tell he just wasn't Thurles.
When I mentioned it to Cheryl, she said Ed, his owner said the same thing. Her little girl dog who is in the same kennel was the same way.
Monday I went over to watch him run, and you can tell he's still not 100%. I'm hoping he'll get some rest & may be won't run again until Saturday...
