For those who dont know me my name is Ashley Bradshaw and i work for a greyhound trainer from which i got two greyhounds (spider and berlin). First i got berlin a dog which was too old for the trainer to want to bother with (she was 3 ) i offered to try train her, she was named twirly berly and she had 16 starts for 6 placings. Unfortunatley she never won but we believe she would of had some wins if she started younger and didnt have a series of medical events (cuts on legs from fence, toe nail broke, bites on neck, and came into season) We then took on spider, Berlin and spider retired to become Greyhound As Pets supporters and helped in finding homes for other greyhounds. Last wednesday Berlin came into to season and i decided to try my hand at whelping, rearing and racing a litter of my own puppies.
i will make regular posts on this blog on how things are going so that people that own retired greyhounds can see what it took to get their greys to the track and to become pets.
