Yowzaa! Have you met Flame? Flame, aka WW Flame Lab, is a 4-year-old black male born April 16, 2010. His sire is Rhythmless and his dam is WW Flame. He has 80 races on record at in Mexico and Iowa, starting in September 2011 and finishing up in October 2012. Come say "hola" to this sweet boy.

Flame should not live with cats.


Flame has only been in my house for a short time now. But he has made no attempts to mark in the house, and has been a star at going potty outside. He is gorgeous and a nice sized boy! He's very quiet, and calmly stays in his ex-pen when I'm away. He sleeps through the night and gets along well with the other greyhounds in the house. (Did I mention how handsome he is?)

He loves ear rubs and has spent most of his days sleeping, modeling usual greyhound behavior. He likes to play with a tennis ball and has thrown and relocated some of the dog toys in my house. Flame will make a wonderful addition to any family (without cats)!

More Future Meet & Greets


Flash is an absolutely amazing dog. We could not be more pleased with him. He is a gem!!  

This past winter was the worst winter we have ever seen. The temperatures and wind chills were unbelievably cold. We had days where the temperatures never got above -25C (-13F) and the wind chills were -30C (-22F) or colder. On those days, Flash could only be out for a maximum of 5 minutes and we would have to keep a close watch on the time. This is a picture of Flash dressed for the cold. The hat he wore is actually Byron's hat but I put it on Flash for a joke. I never thought Flash would actually wear the hat but he loved it. He would not go outside in the bitter cold without the hat on!  Read more of Flash's Happy Hounds, Happy Homes story HERE.
There are no bridge dogs that we know of this week. Yay!
