Our faithful old greyhound Rex passed away last month. My wife and I were devastated and balled our eyes out. We poured through old photos, hung pictures, and recalled all the silly ways he made our house a home.

Usually by making sure he took up the whole couch whenever he got the chance.

After a few weeks we realized that the house was just too quiet. My wife and I love greyhounds too much to not keep our home open to one. When we saw Octane, I new I had to meet him.

Octane is a giant! Tall (even by greyhound standards) and big. His personality is so sweet, that he truly embodies the term “gentle giant”.

After spending a few nights in our home to ensure he wouldn’t try to break down the door to the chinchilla’s room, we new he was the dog to start to full the emptiness in our home.

Plus, every night I get home from work I get to say “High” Octane!!
