To the dog park! Or anywhere within 6 blocks.

Arrival Story:
Leela retired from a less than stellar racing career in New Hampshire (if you knew her as PS Boston, you probably lost some money). She arrived at Greyhound Welfare in Maryland and lived in a foster home for a little while. As soon as I met this beautiful shy sweet girl, I knew she was the one.

Two years into retirement and Leela is just the sweetest, most polite, most patient dog in the universe. She is incredibly subtle, calm, and laid back in most every situation - one of her many fans described her as "having a rich inner life". She is happy just to sleep nearby, loves to go for walks, hang out at a cafe, run a couple of laps in the yard then snooze in the grass, or just lay in the pond. When we are out, other dog owners enviously remark on her calmness, her gentle playfulness, and sweet demeanor. After about a half hour at the dog park, Leela comes over when she's done playing and sits by my side to let me know she's ready to go. A beautiful wonderful girl! GREYHOUNDS ARE THE BEST! Ask anyone who has one (or two or three!)
