Greyhound Mating Pictures
The origin of the greyhound is starts way
back in history. Murals and paintings of dogs strikingly similar to today's
greyhound existed over 4,000 years ago. It is thought that the greyhound
arrived in England over 3,500 years ago. Their link with nobility was
established in 1014 when King Canute enacted Laws, which stated that
only noblemen could own and hunt with greyhounds.
Greyhound track racing, as we know it today, began with Owen Patrick Smith's invention of a mechanical lure around 1912, which made racing around a circular track possible. The first circular track opened in 1919 in Emeryville, California. Betting on Greyhound racing is still very popular.
