    Oh yes Annette Crosbie is well known for her work to support ex racers over here. She’s often on TV with her dogs. Jilly Cooper (Author of ridiculous books such as Polo & Riders…) is another greyhound promoting celeb… Deccy x

    Yay. It’s always good to have a high profile advocate. 🙂

    Gosh, you can tell what a nice lady she is just by looking at her. She has kind eyes. Thank you, Miss Crosbie, for everything you do for greyhounds!

    Speaking of Greyhounds, when we went to Kansas City for Thanksgiving, we passed a sign for the Greyhound Hall of Fame. I wanted to stop but my mom said no. Humph!

    Wiggles & Wags,

    She is truly a lovely lady 🙂 Did you notice she wears a greyhound jumper in the Calendar girls film? Also, have you seen what Mr Reznor of Nine Inch Nails has been up to? Another greyhound lover right there!

    • lori says:

      I have not seen Calendar Girls; but I’m going to correct that soon! I will look for the jumper. I think Trent Reznor will have to show up in a future “Famous Greyhound Owners” post.

  • Chris says:

    She looks like such a lovely lady. I need to check out the Calendar Girls movie, too!
    I sure wish I could get my 6 Greyhounds to sit still long enough to get my photo taken with them…would be a lovely Christmas card if my husband & I could get a photo without them acting all wild and crazy…
