This is how long our continuous journey has been for. The one thing I was unprepared for, has been the attention we would receive. We would be stopped and people would tell us about the dog they have or have had. Even though I would listen, I wasn’t fully engaged, unless it was about a Greyhound.

One word describes Zack best, “perfect”. Now that doesn’t mean we haven’t experienced our hills and valleys. But when the latter occurs, I think of the words to the song “He ain’t heavy he’s my brother”. I just tweak the song to fit our situation.

The road’s been long
With many a winding turns
That would lead us to who knew where
Who knew when
But I’ve been strong
Strong enough to lead him
He’s my greyhound

So on we go
His welfare is my concern
No burden has he been to bear
We’ll get there
For I knew
He would not encumber me
He is my greyhound

If I have been troubled at all
I’ve been troubled with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with such gladness
For the love of their greyhound

Yes, it’s been a long, long road
From which there would be no returns
While on the way there
Why not share
And the load hasn’t slowed me down at all
He’s been my greyhound
