This website houses a library of greyhound articles that were written between 1899 to the present. To enlarge or reduce text or photo size, please use “ctrl+” or “ctrl-”. For submissions or to contact the webmistress use the ~Contact~ tab above.
Please be aware that some articles may not always reflect current thinking or methodology; they are presented here for historical perspective and most have an asterisk (*) next to the title. On the other hand, some very old articles are as current today as they were 25 or so years ago; you will have to use your discretion when following suggestions in some of the older articles.
As you can see from the categories and subcategories, the subject matter is quite diverse. Many thanks go to the writers, photographers and artists listed below who have allowed their work to be published here. Please respect their work and do not reprint anything without their permission. If you wish to do so, use the ~Contact~ tab and the webmistress will try to put you in touch with the right people so that you may ask for their permission.
Even better, join us on Facebook and indulge in lively conversations and get interesting and breaking news.
For more detailed info about this site or for more on how to use it, or even to find out how to add an article or two to this site, please keep reading this page. If not and you’re good to go, well, happy reading!
OK, where do all these articles come from?
Much of the material here is from Celebrating Greyhounds Magazine, 1996 through 2001, and from WAG Tales, a magazine-formatted greyhound adoption group newsletter, 1993 through 2005, although more recent and original articles are here too. Articles from greyhound adoption newsletters are especially welcomed! Some articles from Greyhounds Today, a greyhound adoption-oriented magazine published from 1992-1998 by Jeanette Steiner, have been added. CG Magazine, as it’s now called, is still in publication. Back issues from 2000 on are available. Although we are not affiliated with the magazine or The Greyhound Project, we urge you to subscribe and to purchase back issues by visiting here.
Our goals are two-fold.
The first goal is is to make available previously-published material going back several decades that was no longer accessible; the second goal is to present recent original or reprinted material that authors want to make available online to interested readers in real time. As such, it is a repository of articles and ideas – a library, if you will – that may or may not reflect current thinking or methodology. Article original publication dates are listed wherever possible at the end of each article. This will give the reader a historical perspective about how a subject was perceived in any particular time frame. We do not advocate one way of thinking over another as that is not the purpose of a library. Take from it what you will; that is our overall purpose.
How to use this site
You can find articles by plain old scrolling or by clicking on the main category heading for a complete linkable list of the articles within it, including subcategories. You might find it easier to use a mouse if you’re on a laptop, although people who are whizzes at using laptops should have no trouble using the drop-down boxes.
To Search This Site
Sometimes the number of articles seems dizzying, making it daunting to find articles, topics, or authors. The search function in the upper right corner should produce names of articles, one by one, that contain the word you’re looking for – “monkey” for example. Press “older” to get results if there is more than one article with monkey in it. (There are 6, actually.)
Help us find more articles.
Be our partner or a contributor; help us dig up those great articles and photos. If you see a great article or post or if you’ve written something that might belong here, please drop me a line and tell me about it at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the ~Contact~ tab so we can put it online. If you’ve written an article for CG Magazine between 1996 and 2001 and can’t find it, not to worry; I probably have it. If you’ve written an article for other sources, it can be posted here if you own the rights to it. Scanned articles are fine if no files are available.
We need your digital photos too.
We also welcome wonderful photos of your greyhounds, especially those who are doing something fun and interesting and who are with other animals and with people. Rest assured, nothing will be posted here without the creator’s permission. If you read an article with no or few photos, that means we need some for that article.

If your hound is sick, please visit your veterinarian; do not rely on articles as your only source of information. Greyhound Articles Online tries to present fun and accurate information that might be of interest to greyhound adopters but we do not necessarily agree with every article, verify accuracy of every article nor can we be held legally liable for content published here. We don’t advertise products but would like to be alerted of useful products we can all use.
Thanks for reading. We wish all the best to you and your hounds.
