The adoption league here has quite a few decorated dogs. One showed promise at Wheeling Downs winning 3 of 17 but had to retire due to a strained hock. Lots of interesting history to read about with greyhounds.
Lu doesn't really bark... only when she's REALLY excited/afraid, but we correct her quickly... it's never been an approved behavior due to her contraband nature and all.
I can't stand barking dogs. Cannot stand.
