Gwyneth’s Page

 

Hi kids!  My name is Gwyneth and I'm a former racing Greyhound.  That means that I used to have a paying job!  Yes, I used to run around a track shaped like an oval and if I came in first, second, or third, I got paid!  When my trainer decided it was time to retire, my new Mommy, who I had known for several months, decided she did want me for real – she wanted me to be a part of her life. 

So, I left the track one day to join some of my friends at a prison located in Florida.  Yep, it was there that a very nice lady by the name of Kelly, took me under her wing and trained me to be a very awesome Greyhound, not that I wasn’t already! 


Now, I can do all sorts of commands ie sit, shake, go down, heel, bed, wait, come, lap, kiss and I even know how to bow.  I love to perform, much like my namesake, Gwyneth Paltrow.   Yes, that is my birth name.  My siblings include Robin Williams, Chuck Norris, Hilary Duff, John Madden, Lisa Kudrow, etc.  You get the idea.  We were all named after stars!  I have to say my name fits me to a “T”!!  I try to live up to my reputation!


Anyway, life is good.  I have wonderful Greyhound sisters – Sugar, Lucy, and Sami, and my Mom, Ms. Patti, always has me doing some new activity.  We are very busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way!


We are very excited about being a R.E.A.D. team.  I'm looking forward to meeting you and hearing you read to me.


Please send me an email to Gwyneth@ReadingPaws.org. I love getting emails and hearing from you.  I promise I'll email you back!  See you soon!
