Keeper

Ali and I have adopted a retired racing greyhound named Keeper. He ran 69 races under the name KL Rambo's Matt, and is now very content to sleep on his bed. He is a healthy 3.5 year old dog, that had past his peak so was retired. Greyhounds live for 12-14 years so Keeper will have a long retired life.


or to play with his stuffed Tessa Owl


We adopted him from Greyhounds in Need of Adoption. He spent his racing career in Florida so I will have to knit him a coat for winter. Can you believe that there was no yarn at Rhinebeck - I wanted a heavier - aran or worsted Superwash wool and didn't see any suitable for a dog sweater.

That is the cutest picture of your new doggie with his owl - so funny!

Good on you for stepping up and giving him a great home :)

Woo hoo - more photos of Keeper. I like the stuffed owl. Maybe he's a hunting dog! :)
