A Face in the Crowd 

So, how do you like the new dog park? It's great—the people are great. I just wish they'd empty the garbage and leave fresh doggie bags more often. A lot of people bring their own, and that's nice.

Tell me about your greyhounds? Well, Roz (the white one) has been with me for seven years. She moved with me from New York. Chloe came from Memphis, and I've had her 10 months. They really are wonderful dogs.

How do you adopt a greyhound? It's a little like adopting a child. First, you fill out the adoption papers, and then they check out your home and make sure the dogs are friendly with small animals and children. The agency will periodically check on you after that to make sure the animal is being cared for properly.

What special needs, if any, do greyhounds have? They need really high-quality food because they're all muscle. Other than that, they're just beggars sleeping up to 17 hours a day and wanting affection on their schedule, which isn't very often.
