We can become so fond of our wonderful Greyhounds that we tend to think of them as some kind of super-species of dog, somehow a little grander, a little "better" than the average dog. So perhaps "average" dog behavior can come as a surprise or a disappointment. Glamorizing our companions, romanticizing their actions and motives, is unrealistic and unfair to the dogs. The purpose of this document is not to scare you away from adopting a Greyhound, but to make you think and to realize, that Greyhounds really are dogs, after all.
