Jim brought the hounds pig's ears today. I think this is a first for Sterling, and he didn't need any help figuring it out!

Hiking by the river just West of Dester Dam, then checked out the Farmer's Market by the boat landing. Sterling and Treasure were the talk of the town, especially when Treasure tried to help herself to some organic blackberries.

I imagine they were at just the right height.

Back in the car after a short excursion up Eula ridge. Sterling got plenty of running in yesterday, so he didn't feel like going any further than 3 miles.

This guy is amazing. You must click through and read the sommelier-esque descriptions of the stings. Coincidentally, I just got nailed on my run this morning, and it was definitely a "W.C. Fields extinguishing a cigar on your tongue" type sting.
 
"Schmidt Pain Scale for Stinging Insects."

Here is a sample of things you do not want to get stung by. An entomologist develops his own pain scale... pretty descriptive.

Ouch - sorry you got nailed. These descriptions are gruesome and I cringed while reading the words.

At it again... He's almost 5, and he ran 150 races in his career, but Sterling is full of joie de vivre!

It is just so wonderful to see. My last dog Lilly had a very greyhound/whippet body. Until she was about 12 years old she could still tear it up. I will never forget the first time I saw her in a full tilt run at the dog park with some greyhounds. It was breathtaking and absolutely fantastic. Just remembering it brings me joy. May Sterling have many more happy running days. And I send treasure a little hug, too.

Introduction
I'm a Math teacher, very amateur bass player in a hard-rock band, enthusiastic cook, and massive bookworm.

But, if you add me to your circles, what you'll probably notice is that I post picture after picture of my adorable greyhounds. So if that sounds like the sort of thing you want in your stream, have at it.
Bragging rights
I've lived with a remarkable woman for 20 years, just haven't gotten around to getting married yet.

Linda is wonderful, kind and affordable. She is very patient with problem dogs that other groomers would balk at, and very accommodating with her schedule.

A Sight-Hound Lovers Dream! Happened to walk by this store on my way to play pinball at Jules Mae, and was sucked in by the extensive greyhound merchandise. The owner was knowledgable and friendly, and shared her experiences with 3 retired racers. The selection of food, collars, leashes and "fun stuff" was jaw-dropping. Lots of great stuff for owners of any breed, but people with sight-hounds should really plan a trip to this wonderful shop!

Living in Eugene, we are spoiled with many wonderful coffee shops, but Eugene Coffee Company stands out from the crowd. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, hardly ever a wait, spacious outdoor covered patio and ample parking make this a daily stop for me. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the coffee is delicious.

Got my sugar ant and rodent problem all sorted out, and I don't have to worry about chemicals in the backyard hurting my dog. Awesome, prompt service!
