Since a lot of the sculptures we saw at Allerton Park over the weekend had some Grecian influence to it, I thought it would be fun to tell a little bit about Greyhounds and their ties to ancient Greece.
Homer, the Greek poet, is the first author to ever mention a hound in literature. When Odysseus returns after being gone for twenty years, his dog, Argos is the only one to recognize him. Thousands of years later, the passage of Odysseus' homecoming still captures the canine spirit.
Hopefully this has been a little fun to learn about. The stories of Greyhounds in history have fascinated me since I began sharing my life with them. I thought it would be fun to share some of them since we had some fun pictures from our trip to go with them.
