Marvin (in the lovely brindle coat) can get some pretty serious air. I've been trying to capture him with all 4s off the ground for a while now. Typically with the assistance of his Mom and a teasing squeaky toy. She, of course, got him to do a major flying leap earlier when I was turned away. So we tried again. Little did we know Marvin was about to be completely upstaged by a new visitor to our group today, fresh off the track (and still at racing weight - that is why she looks so skinny) and in foster to adopt.
It went a little like this:
Marvin: "Stop dangling that thing above my head and just give it to me." Rowena: "Hmmmm. That looks like a tempting squeaks."
Rowena: "MINE!" Marvin: "Dude!"
Marvin: "WTF, newbie?" Rowena: "What?"
I've never seen a greyhound leap like that. We were completely surprised (as, it appears, was Marvin). It was awesome!
(On another note - see how attractive those screaming monkeys are to the greys? Go buy one and support greyhound rescue!) :-)
Welcome to my blog; Cult of the Greyhound. It's all about the dogs, well, and also my photos. In my alternative reality I am a photographer. Add to that a fascination with greyhounds and there is no way to remove the camera from my hands when near the hounds. I have 4 greyhounds; Willow, Breeze, Dru and Angel, and they are a constant source of entertainment for me and fodder for the camera. Greyhound photography, gotta' love it!
