Gross, but important to know.

It’s true … some greyhounds and other dogs eat not only other dogs’ (or other animals’) poop, but some eat their own poop, too. Catch this episode to discover why a greyhound may be exhibiting this behavior, what poop eating may be telling you about your greyhound’s health, and potential dangers that may lurk in the turds your greyhound ingests.

Episode 57: When Greyhounds Raced Cheetahs (Seriously)

… and we have the photos to prove it.

Cheetahs are the fastest land mammal in the world at 75 MPH. Greyhounds come in a distant second as the second fastest land mammal at 45 MPH. But … what if they were to race each other on a track?

Impossible, you say? Then travel back in time with us to 1937 for the great cheetah and greyhound races at Rumford Greyhound Stadium in England. That’s when, and where, it happened. You may be surprised.

Be sure to  see photos of the cheetah and greyhound races here.
