Greyhounds are mostly known as timid creatures that are afraid of people. Not so strange if you know the Spanish Galgo suffers abandonment and other atrocities. But, actually, they are delightful, they love to play, cuddle and occupy the couch in all kinds of postures, oh, I almost forgot they are sneaky! They know how to persuade you to give away your plate of food, or suddenly in a flash the food that was on the counter is…. Gone! Apart from that, they run like the wind, but mostly, they are lazy cuddly couch potatoes.
