Chronicles of Less Urban Living, Fresh from In the Night Farm

Happiness…

is a new greyhound…
rescued from a track that closed in Kansas…
with a new friend…
and a big yard…

and a forever home.

Welcome, little Goblin, to In the Night Farm.
_________________________________________

Why the muzzles, you ask? It’s certainly not because greyhounds are violent. Rather, they’re one of the gentlest breeds you’ll ever have the pleasure to know. But they do have thin skins that tear easily, so a playful nip could mean a trip to the vet for stitches. That’s why many greyhound owners use muzzles, especially while new dogs get to know each other.
