Beckett is very pleased that he has the honor of having his picture in Retired From Racing Not From Life's 2012 Art Book.Go here to check it out! The proceeds of all the sales are donated to Ohio State University's Greyhound Health and Wellness Program.

We have been spending some vacation time at the campground and all the dogs seem to be enjoying it.  Last night Beckett met a lovely lady greyhound named Mandy, who also raced at Wonderland.  She was camping here overnight on her way to visit Newfoundland and Labrador.   

Maddy is doing so well walking around here with all the barking dogs.  She hasn't barked back once and just ignores them.  Must be the change of scenery, even two little white teacup poodles didn't get a rise out of her.  

Miss Veil, on the other hand, cries and turns back to the trailer if a dog barks at her, unless Beckett or Maddy is with her.  They must be her body guards. She has also decided the couch in the trailer is just her size.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Glad you are all having a nice holiday. Tell Beckett those holiday romances never last :)
    Those yappy little dogs can be a real pest (and I should know, LOL!)

  2. Congratulations, Beckett! I'm not surprised. You come from a house of handsome hounds. Enjoy your camping.

  3. Beckett, congrats on getting in the Book. Even though you're famous now, it's good to see you are there to protect your sister from those ruffians.

  4. Yay, it's great to be in the book, huh:) Beryl is very proud to be in such illustrious company:)

    Wow, a holiday, sounds like fun ... well, maybe not so much Veil yet, but she looks like she's sussed the best place to sleep anyway.

  5. Beckett, I'm quite impressed by your modeling skills! You take fantastic pictures, but so do Maddy and Veil. Veil, wherever I go, German Shepherds want to protect me. Perhaps you need one or two of those. They make great bodyguards!


  6. Congrats Beckett! Hope you have a great time camping!

  7. Congratulations Beckett! Hope you all enjoyed your camping! :)
