Have you ever wondered at the marvel of the greyhound tail. What is its purpose other than placing large dents in drywall (as my buddy Warior's parents can attest to). Now I am sure that I could google it up and discover the scientic theories behind it however for my purposes I find it much more enjoyable to speculate. Cows have tails seemingly for swatting flies. If that is the reason for the greyhound tail I have to wonder what kind of gynormous insects they were battling. Also greyhounds seem to be pretty good at contorting themselves so that they can access all corners of their beings and so I have to wonder if the tail has some other purpose.
Since I started taking Kassa to the location we will name as "the public fenced area where no other dogs are playing, but it is legal for dogs to play". I noticed that when he is in need of a quick decelleration he circles his tail furiously like a hellicpoter blade. I tried to video the phenominon this morning but of course non of the video depicted it well. This could be also because I try not to put him in situations where he has no out, making it extra hard to film. Kassa can swing his rear appendage so quickly that I think he may achieve liftoff. Has anyone else noticed this in their hounds?
