While out having coffee last week, someone stopped to pat Rassilon. He was a casual greyhound racer (doing it from home), but he recognised the excellent, if not out of shape, body of Rassilon.
He suggested that Rassilon looked like a New South Wales bred dog, and named the breeder, so I made an enquiry with GAP to see what they could tell me.
It turns out that Rassilon was bred in South Australia. His Sire was El grand Senior who had 43 races, and his Dam was Hayride Bingle who only had 4 races. The strange thing is, they were both black dogs, and Rassilon is a light Fawn Brindle.
Anyway, I can trace the history of racing dogs using the Internet. Unfortunately Rassilon didn’t race, so I couldn’t get him on the lists (even using his kennel name of Casper). But it is great what you can get.
Although not racing, I am sure his breeders would be happy to know that Rassilon is following a successful career in Therapy Visitation.
Late one night a burglar broke into a house and while he was sneaking around he heard a voice say, “Jesús is watching you.” He looked around and saw nothing. He kept on creeping and again heard, “Jesús is watching you.” In a dark corner, he saw a cage with a parrot inside. The burglar asked the parrot, “Was it you who said Jesús is watching me” The parrot replied, “Yes.” Relieved, the burglar asked, “What is your name?” The parrot said, “Methuselah.” The burglar said, “That’s a stupid name for a parrot. What idiot would name a parrot Methuselah?” The parrot answered, “The same idiot that named their 85Lb rottweiler Jesús.”
