Yogi and his staffTeam Yogi

Yogi wanted to call us two fat b*tches and a skinny dog but his humans objected so we opted for Team Yogi.

So, who are these fat b*tches humans?

About The Hounds

Here are the hounds' own stories:

Yogi

How handsome am I?

My name is Yogi Berra van Hegelwyk and I used to be a racing greyhound. I’m still a greyhound, but I don’t race any more.

Now, if you read that bit down there ▼ about my brother, Radley, then you will know he had Mom and Mom-Too. Well, me? I have Mama…

…cuz she loves me, and feeds me, and takes me to the park, and lets me sleep in her room.

And The Jellyfish…

…cuz she’s always in the water.

And cuz what’s that on her head? At first I thought it was an octopus but it has more than eight legs. Yup, jellyfish.

Greyhound in the surfMama, help! It's getting me.

I have many greyt adventures. Check me out learning to surf.

Anyway, I’ll be posting regularly about my amazing antics so please do keep checking back.




Radley

Radley GreyhoundBeautiful Radley

My name is Radley Armstrong van Hegelwyk and I’m a retired racing greyhound.

Does that sound too much like a twelve step programme introduction? Mom says it does, but I don’t know what she’s talking about so I’m not changing it.

I wanted to tell you my racing name, but Mom’s so paranoid she thinks I’ll get tracked down and shot by some deranged lunatic who lost money on me at the bookies. (Psst, it's Hammy's Bluesboy).

Mom-Too thinks Mom is the deranged one, but I think she’s okay most of the time.

My Crazy Mixed Up Family

I have two moms, Mom and Mom-Too. Mom-Too used to be called Auntie but then things got complicated. Mom started looking after Great Granny-Too (I have two of those too) so I live with Mom-Too now, but I spend some of the day with Mom too as well.

I also have two dads. One went over the rainbow bridge to be with the cats, and the other is living on a beach in South Africa.

Mom says he actually lives in a house, but I’ve seen the photos and he’s always on the beach! I want to go and see him but Mom says I’ll melt in the sun, or go batpoo on a snake and get myself killed. Anyway, sometimes we get to talk to Dad on that thing the moms point at me to take my picture.

Then there’s Granny and Grandad Coleby. I go to stay with them when the moms want to go somewhere that doesn’t allow greyhounds.

I can’t imagine what they do there, or why they would want to go, but that’s humans for you – weird!

There’s also Auntie Lindsay, Uncle Ted and my cousin Amy, oh and Vryheid the car.

You’ll meet them all on one of my adventures. I’m sure.

My other aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents are in South Africa where there are scary things like snakes and sun, so you won’t be meeting them.

PS: This is the last person who spammed Mom’s website so don’t go doing it on Greyt Adventures.
