I love greyhounds! I love how they look so different than other dogs, and even though they run so fast, you almost never see them doing anything but laying on the couch. These two babies are so cute and loving looking!

Nov 30, 2006 Cassie
What a cool story. I've had the opportunity to be around some greyhounds and they are great dogs. They always have such love in their eyes. These pups are no exception! Love 'em!!
Nov 30, 2006 Knate and Charlene
The world would be a better place if there were more people like Elton and Peanut's "parents". Those svelte, gorgeous beasties;Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks eat your hearts out!

There is a special heaven for people like you. God Bless you and ALL your dogs, especially Elton & Peanut. I pray for their complete recovery and a long, healthy, happy life.

Well done to you for rescuing those two cute adorable puppies. Just having become 'grandma' to a gorgeous black ex racing greyhound, I understand this breed so much better now. I wish them a safe, happy and long life in their new home.
Nov 30, 2006 DieselsMom
Elton & Peanut were born under a lucky star to have found you.... Blessings to your entire four legged family!!!
Nov 30, 2006 Barb

Saying thank-you isn't enough for opening your hearts to these two little ones, but, THANK-YOU!!!
Nov 30, 2006 Sophie-s Mom
Elton and Peanut are absolutely beautiful. Great job taking a chance on what turned out to be a happy ending.

11 biscuits. They survived because of the love your family has given them. 11 angels to you.
Nov 30, 2006 Happymommy
Wow you must have a very big house and yard for all that Greyhound fun and frolic. Enjoy your two new adorable additions.
Nov 30, 2006 gryt
Those kids know a thing or two about napping! I love that the two brothers get to stay together too. Little sweeties...
Nov 30, 2006 Bunnied816
What a fine pair!! Way to go, rescuing! Watch out though!! They're clearly resting up for something - and considering the amount of rest needed, it's gonna be something BIG!! ;-) Happy adventures to you all!
Nov 30, 2006 jenniferlea
I have never seen greyhound puppies before - how cute! Glad to hear they are in good health and living a happy life with their humans and greyhound family in the country! I'm sure they're very greatful to have such generous humans!
Nov 30, 2006 Cheysmom
Just a thank you for people with your compassion!!!!!!!!!
Nov 30, 2006 Kathy
Today's my birthday, and your post was a lovely birthday present for this greyhound-lover. I'm glad Peanut and Elton are doing so well and are so happy. Congratulations on your lovely furkids.
Nov 30, 2006 Stella-s mom
All they needed was a chance. That and lots of TLC and love. I have a pound puppy (now 5) and she "knows" she was spared and it the most lovable 88 pound lap dog. A true member of the family.
Nov 30, 2006 anon
what wonderful people you are! and what absolutely adorable puppies! I just realized that I've never seen a greyhound as a puppy and am completely disappointed in having missed out on this cuteness for so long!! They're absolutely beautiful. I especially love the pic of tiny Elton cuddled up for a nap with her big brother/sister.
Nov 30, 2006 Julia
Look at those trim little bellies!!!! Ohhh, I want to snuzzle them! Such pointy schnozzolas, too! I love the protuberant noses of greyhounds and whippets. One of my rescues is part Italian greyhound (he even has the chest spot), and his nose literally looks like it was attached as an afterthought--it pokes out amazingly.

I would LOVE to see your adult greyhounds in the Grown-Up Puppies section. I am a huge fan of greyhound rescue. Kudos for taking on these pups, and for sharing your home with adult long-legged beasties.

WOW! they have the most beautiful eyes ever!
I loooove the story! I love Elton Peanut!!!!!!!! <3

Aw.. so sweet of you to take them in, they look so happy in your home!
Nov 30, 2006 smiss
I'm so happy people are out there that not only have the compassion to take care of such ill puppies, but also the means to do so. (I have the compassion, but I unfortunately lack the means).

And if Peanut needs more pillows, by God get him more! :) You are very lucky to have such a wonderful puppy family.
Nov 30, 2006 Always 11 Biscuits!
Elton and Peanut deserve 11 biscuits!

God BLess You!!!

Merry Christmas, Ia m sure Snata will find the brood!!!
Nov 30, 2006 Satamama
They are RIDICULOUSLY cute. I extra-especially love how they sleep on each other's necks!

All the greyhounds I've ever met were rescued racers, which means growing up with a lot of discipline and hard work, and not always being loved like a member of the family. These guys are so lucky to be pets right from the start, and I wonder if their personalities will be different because of it.
Nov 30, 2006 Bridget
What a wonderful story, thanks for sharing.
Nov 30, 2006 Spike-s Mom
May your heart be blessed for your many acts of kindness. You set an example we all should remember in the world we live in today. Beautiful story!
Nov 30, 2006 Care
oh I love it when greyhounds lay on their backs like that!!! They are so cute!
Nov 30, 2006 DogMom
TOO CUTE! Thank you so much for rescuing them and giving them the chance to live a great life! I realized when I saw your pictures that I have never seen a greyhound puppy before--only adults! They are adorable. Good luck!

Such sweetie pies!
Nov 30, 2006 Rachel
What a beautiful story. May Elton and Peanut bring you many years of much-deserved joy, and vice versa.
Nov 30, 2006 art
cute. super cute. the black one looks like a colt sleeping. but i can't help wondering what the breeder would have done if he couldn't find a home for these sickly pups. no money to be made so... what happens?
Nov 30, 2006 CubbieLove
5 huge dogs?! I can't even imagine that! I love that you have 3 ex-racing dogs. I have heard they make wonderful pets.
Nov 30, 2006 nimikov
Dont think ive ever seen GH pups before, oddly.. they are alot fuzzier looking than the adults. Heh. They are really something else..
Nov 30, 2006 christine
11 biscuits are not enough! I have two retired racers and love seeing the rare greyhound pups. They are wonderful pets!
Nov 30, 2006 ilovedogs
Wow!!!! This is one awesome story!!!!!!! Elton and Peanut are sooooo cute!!!!!!! I am glad that they survived!!!! All the pics are fantastic!!!!!!! I hope they become big healthy dogs!!!!!! Greyhounds they are absolutely adorable and amazing dogs!!!!!! 11 biscuits are never enough for cute dogs!!!!!

beautiful story. thanks for saving 'em.
Nov 30, 2006 Animefreak
What a wonderful story! I can see why they are so spoiled, you can't say "no" to faces like that!
Nov 30, 2006 Terri
I have a 16 year old ex-racing greyhound who has brought me such joy all these years - I've often wondered what she must have looked like as a puppy - these dogs are the BEST!!!

Nov 30, 2006 othostice
I realized as I viewed the photos that I had never seen a greyhound puppy before. Perhaps because they are used for racing, you rarely see anyone with a puppy. Usually, they are adopted from tracks fully grown. What beautiful, sweet-faced animals!
Nov 30, 2006 your iggy cousins Beau & Nicholai
Dont be fooled by their cute looks! THEY'RE CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nov 30, 2006 Amy and Tony
These are my sister's puppies. Peanut and Elton have grown into handsome men. Peanut's best friend in the world is one of my iggy's. They play together and Peanut is so gentle with him. Make a fast friend, adopt a greyhound!
Nov 30, 2006 Jessica
Hello!! just to tell you that you are a good person God Bless you, you did a great job with those puppies ; they look beautiful and healthy. I wish to you the best, byee
Nov 30, 2006 Jessica
This dog is uuuuug-ly!!!!!!!!!
Nov 30, 2006 renee
Wow Simply Amazing!!!!! They are so adorable. They look so soft and silky to touch. I've never seen GH babies before. I never knew they came in black. Will their eye color stay hazel? You are angels for taking in these two and raising them. Your story is so sad then wonderful. Your family is wonderful for being so caring and loving and understanding. You have the biggest hearts to take in these beautiful animals. I've always admired the adults and felt bad for their mistreated lives but these babies are awesome looking. And when they grow up they will just look lean and beautiful.

In 1989 my little four month old black greyhound boy named Peanut died from a liver shunt. I am so happy to see him back and living a fantasy life. I have four greys and think they are the most wonderful dogs I have ever had! Give Peanut and Elton hugs and kisses for me.

what a nice person and what cute dogs! aww i love greyhounds i met an italian greyhound once he was a cute little guy! like a miiature version of a greyhound and anyone elton and peanut...sooo cute once again had to say it bye bye xoxx
Dec 7, 2006 Peanut and Elton-s Mommy
Peanut and Elton have sadly lost their "adoptive mommy", Bear one of our ex-racers. (She is the one in the picture cuddling with Elton). She was 11 years old and died of kidney problems, she was a great gal. With the loss of one of our precious greyhounds we have welcome a new puppy into our family, Ellie Jelly. She is a 3 pound, 4.5 week old greyhoud puppy. Her mom had stopped feeding her litter and turned violent toward her puppies and actually killed 3. So Ellie has come to live with us because her mom has stopped caring for her and Ellie doesn't have the physical building to be a racer. Peanut loves her and cuddles, kisses and plays with her when she is awake. Elton is getting use to the change but was not imprssed with her when she first came. She is a little playful monster already! We are so lucky to be able to rescue greyhounds and I wish we could take in more.

I love these puppies! Like som many commenters before, I've never seen greyhound puppies. I have a retired greyhounds blog and I'd like to put this posting on there - if anyone's interested in ex-racing greyhounds, feel free to visit http://ex-racing-gre yhounds...

RIP, Peanut!

RIP. Bear!

Sweet babies. God only takes the best of dogs, so early...

If I understand Peanut and Elton's Mommies post from 12/07/06 correctly, it was Bear that passed on, not Peanut. It's a shame they lost their mother figure. Bear must have been a big help getting these pups in good health.

I found it very interesting that the pups don't have the long legs yet. Never saw a greyhound puppy before!

Rest in peace, Bear. Bless this pack of grateful greys and their people who love them.

oh my...the are probably the cutest puppies i've ever seen!!!! =)

Peanut and Elton, your story made me cry. Bawling right here at my desk.. So precious you are and it is quite obvious how much you love one another. You both brought each other through this traumatic event, but thank God you pulled through. I hope you give your humans lots and lots of kisses to show your appreciation. What great people they are to take you in and nurse you back to healthy, vibrant, gorgeous boys. Oh do I wish I could meet you both. thanks for making my day. God bless you both and your family. Lots of belly rubs, kisses and treats for you guys. What a great story.

Cute little guys...and I love their names!

Sadly, Peanut did pass away in May of 2007, he was 2 months shy of his 2nd birthday. He had gotten sick and his little body could not handle it, when he passed he looked so peaceful and he wasn't hurting anymore. Elton and Ellie miss him but none more than me, everyday. He has become a legend now...The Great Peanut-o-saurus, just thinking about him makes you smile. I wouldn't have traded Peanut for the world and would do it all over again in a heart beat even though I only got him for less then two years. :)
