Jez,

It's nice to see a working dog get taken in and treated kindly and kept healthy during the golden years. You are to be commended.

Nice images too. :wink:

I took the photo this morning and did what I call "Phiddling with Photoshop" :wink:

Funnily enough, I don't have many full-body photos of him as I agree with you - he has lovely eyes!

Anyway, here's one I took last year whilst experimenting with DOF on the 50mm 1.4.....

Thank you! He's a pleasure to have around the house - no trouble at all. I've heard greyhounds described as "30 mph couch potatos" and I have to agree! Two or three relatively short walks a day keep him excellent condition and he's so mellow as well. On top of that he's the most patient model I've ever had..... :wink:

I'd have another one without doubt.

Nice shots, Jez! I've heard retired Greyhounds make great pets and have thought about taknig one in as well. Not sure how my three Dachshunds would react though!
