"Snowflake is doing very well. She's exploring the house, follows us around sometimes, and is trying to steal our dinners. She's running around the backyard like she owns it and is playing with her toys. She goes down the ramp we built in the back very easily, and we're still working on the stairs. She does so well at home during the day - we haven't had any problems. She's just so good! You can tell she's much more comfortable in the house and we couldn't be happier."

TRACING YOUR GREYHOUNDS LINEAGE AND RACING HISTORY
As you seek to better understand your ex-racing greyhound, you might find it interesting to learn about his racing career. Although not all dogs are in the online databases, you have a pretty good chance of finding your greyhound in one of them if he once raced.
Every racing greyhound has identifying tatoos in both ears. The first step is to make a note of the tattooed numbers in your greyhound's ears. You should also find them on the adoption paperwork you received when you adopted your greyhound. If the tattoos are very hard to read, it helps to shine a flashlight beam through the ear from behind to illuminate the digits.
If your greyhound was registered in the U.S., as will almost certainly be the case, the left ear should contain a 5-digit National Greyhound Association litter registration number.
The right ear (Left: right ear litter registration tatoo) will have 2 or 3 numbers and a letter. Here's how to read the right ear tatoo: the first one or two digits indicates the month the dog was whelped, and the last number (always a single digit) is the year of birth. The letter is an identifier as to the order they were tattooed in the litter (not necessarily the birth order). For example, 72B means a birthdate in July 2002, and the second dog tattooed. 111G means a birthdate in November 2001 and the seventh dog tattooed.
Once you have the tattoos, go to Greyhound-Data(www.greyhound-data.com) and search by “Tattoo”. Start by typing only the left ear litter registration number, since much of the right ear information does not seem to be in the database. Another source for getting information on your greyhound is Rosnet 2000. Rosnet Racing International's Rosnet 2000 is intended primarily for those betting on currently-racing greyhounds. It has information on some dogs not included in the Greyhound-Data database. You'll need to register to use the site, but you won't have to pay a fee.
