Awwwww! I think animals really do have an innate "sense" for knowing when something is "wrong." If I'm really upset (like crying), my cat will jump up in my lap and just peer into my face and meow. And, remember the news article on the cat who lived at a nursing home and could sense when one of the residents was near death and would go to their room. It's just uncanny.

Greyhounds are extremely sweet dogs. There are several around here, adopted after their short racing careers were over, and every one I've ever met has been a great dog.

Two notes of caution if you're thinking of adopting one: they need a LOT of exercise, and they are rather short-lived.
