Amtrak or greyhound?
Amtak by far! Bus takes too long and traffic sucks. Amtrak you will beat the traffic and you can move around on the cars of Amtrak. Also, if you want to spend the money, you can rent a bedroom on Amtrak.

They are very fast! They can run up to 45mph, which is the same speed as a car! They are great at running off their previous running in races, andf if they ever came first, they could probably run to 37 mph now!
All animals shed, however a Greyhound does not have an undercoat, (good for allergic people), therefore they do not shed as bad as any other kind of dog. So they do shed Yes.
No they are not, they are just rare! I own one, she is a sweetie! They are GREAT with children!
Amtrak was created in the 1970s because private railroad corporations such as Union Pacific did not want to run their passenger railroad services anymore because they deemed them as not profitable due to compitition by airline and road travel so the government created Amtrak to maintain the passenge…r rail travel in the U.S. Amtrak is a government owned passenger railroad corporation that maintains passenger rail routes throughout the United States.

Really, it depends! They can go from tiny puppies to big dogs! But even when they are big, they never seem to get in the way! Personally, I have a greyhound, and I think handling it as a puppy was harder than now, as an adult. Hope this helped! ( :

Do you mean their lifespan? If so, on average they live for around ten years if pedigree. I myself have greyhounds, two of which have lived to 12 and 13, but most live to about ten years of age. If they are crossbreeds they can live longer.
It's just a name. On the side of Greyhounds there is a greyhound. I know the rest of the bus is white, but the picture of the hound is grey. So, they call it a greyhound.
They are not all gray. In fact, they come in a variety of color variations.. there are some grey greyhounds but they are almost extinct. The very first greyhounds might have been grey but it was too far back to know if they where. Now they are mostly other colors like my 2 that are brindle.
best come in all different sizes usual female greyhound weigh bettween 25kg to 30kg and male greyhounds between 29kg to 38kg. hope i answered ypur question

The United States Congress "founded" Amtrak when it passed The Rail Passenger Service Act (PL 91-518) of 1970. This legislation was signed into law by President Richard Nixon.
A greyhound is a breed of Dog. These dogs are mostly bred for racing. They are the fastest breed of dogs and are sutable to be used as house pets. They have long skinny legs and a slim shaped body, a pointy head and is overall very light for its size. These features give the greyhound a huge advanta…ge to being able to run extremly fast. Due to their delicate shape they are often miishandled and easily become lame. Otherwise they are incredibly intelligent dogs, very loyal and make great racing or house pets. (MORE)
Not all dogs can swim. Some bulldogs, greyhounds and Italian greyhounds and whippets cannot swim. Bulldogs have problems due to their body mass vs their little legs. Greyhound breeds or other sight-hound breeds often don't have enough body fat for buoyancy in addition to their long slender legs bein…g a problem for keeping them afloat. Please, do not assume every dog can swim. It simply isn't true. (MORE)
Greyhounds should sleep on a dog bed or flannel covering. Something warm, since they have extremely short hair and can't retain heat very well.
well , my greyhound(s) eat cucumber ( sometimes ) and chease and stue â¥ Dog food.
The greyhound became a recognized breed in 1886. However, there issome evidence that very similar breeds go back at least 2,000years.
I have 7 greyhound and they have bodies that are structured for running such as long legs and pointed snouts. greyhounds are the fastest breed of dog and can run up to 50-60 mph!

That's why they look funny (I don't mean the "ha ha" way) when they sit. especially on rough surfaces, (etc. Concrete) and the same with slippy surfaces, (etc. Ice). Answer Yes grayhounds can sit altough it is strenuous for them to do s…o and they perfer to lay (MORE)

How much would a Greyhound Bus ticket be from Keene New Hampshire to Oklahoma City Oklahoma versus an Amtrak ticket from Brattleboro Vermont to Oklahoma City Oklahoma?
A one-way ticket by bus from Keene NH to Oklahoma City OK the trip would cost as little as $93 with 21 days advance purchase to $206 for a same-day purchase. Greyhound offers 7- and 14-day advance purchase discounts as well so check their website for current fares. Amtrak has trouble finding serv…ice from Brattleboro to Oklahoma City. The Vermonter runs daily to New York City and beyond but Amtrak's reservation system can't find any good connecting service to Oklahoma City. You could travel from Boston to Oklahoma City by train for as little as $200 with some notice but you'd have to take a bus from Keene to Boston and then connect to Amtrak.

The answer to which is faster, a Greyhound or an Italian Greyhound, that the Greyhound would win that race--due hitting its stride at about 40mph, and the Italian Greyhound hitting a top speed of 25mph.\n \n \nSome sites state that the IG--Italian Greyhound can do 45mph (72.4kph, or 20m/s), and that… the Greyhound reaches 40mph. [I found these numbers on Wikipedia, under 'Greyhound' and 'Italian Greyhound'--I believe that somebody has "padded" the top speed for the Iggy]\n \n \nDoing further research, the numbers are that a Greyhound runs at 37 - 45 mph (16.5m/s or 59.5kph). I also find that the top speed of an Italian Greyhound is 25mph (40.2kph, or 11.2m/s) My Italian Greyhound can do 100 yards from a standing start at an average speed of 31 mph, so the 25 mph is definitely not right. More than likely their average top speed would be 28-35 mph, depending on size... (MORE)
It appears that a "greyhound comb" is a type of dog grooming comb which is about 7-7.5in straight comb, and has teeth set at two distances. I would call one set of teeth 'fine' (close-set), and the teeth on the other half of the comb, I would call 'super fine' (very close-set). So, if you comb us…ing one side, you could choose to either use the close-set or the very close-set teeth on the comb. The Above Statement is not correct. The Greyhound comb is not a 'type of comb' - Greyhound is in fact a trademark and many sizes and types of combs are made under the Greyhound umbrella. They are only made in the UK. There are many many inferior 'copies/fakes' on the market. One easy way to be sure that you are buying a real comb is to purchase it from a 'Greyhound Distributor' that carries other Greyhound Grooming Tools, such as Greyhound Brushes and Greyhound Stripping Knives. They will also have the Greyhound Logo on them now. Its a Greyhound head set into the G. Any website carrying them will also have the Greyhound Banner. You will also see that ALL Greyhound combs are now finished with a 'Colored Anti-static Coating' unique to Greyhound. When you get a real comb in your hand, trust me, you will know ! Hooray for Greyhound I don't know what I would do without mine!! Please don't stop making them Greyhound ! (MORE)
They vary in size according to their breeding. I have two pure and two cross, and they are all different, ranging from hip length and under.
Well the first step would be, only if you have a viable claim so you don't end up waisting money, contact a lawyer. After you have done this you will no longer need to use an unreliable website for your claims
Because they have the pointy noses and the long, elegant bodies. They are sight hounds, and they all have similarities.
A zephyr is a wind. A greyhound is a fast-running dog. A greyhound zephyr is maybe a wind that moves as fast as a fast-running dog.
They smell no different than any other breed. With proper care there should not be any noticeable odor. I hope your not referring to Greyhound buses.
yes,some grey hounds are grey but they can also be greyish blue black dark brown light brown white silverish (thats all the colors that i no of) hope ive helped ' )

Yes greyhounds are very smart. They actually know their way home if you've had them for long enough! I used to have a greyhound and she ran off in the park. Later on in the day we found her on her way home! This proves that greyhounds are extremely intelligent dogs.
It's almost impossible to get them from a pet shop, since selling dogs in pets shops is illegal in the UK. Get them from places like the RSPCA or the Retired Greyhound Trust.
Greyhound racing is where they take greyhounds and they race eachother, because greyhounds are the fastest dog breed in the world.They have very long legs and a thin body wich makes them go fast.At one point, all their legs are off the ground for about 5 secondsat a time when they leap while running….

No, Cleopatra could not possibly have a greyhound, because the greyhound as we know it, originated with the Celts. The hounds shown on many Egyptian tombs are believed to be Saluki, originating in ancient Persia. There is also another breed of dog popular in ancient Egypt called today a Pharaoh Houn…d. This and the Saluki may be the same. (MORE)
Because they are an exceptionally fast breed of dog and people enjoy watching and betting on their races. As an aside, the greyhounds have no say in this.
Greyhounds can actually be most colours! Some are brindle, (Brown and black), some are black, (the woman who I got my greyhound off told me that not a lot of people go for the black ones, as they seem to think they're ugly.) Some can be brown, greyh, and many other colours! Hope this helped! ( : P.S…:- If you asked this question because you were looking for a greyhound, please don't just choose one because its colour is pretty. We have a black one, and she seems to be the kindest dog ever! By the way, heres a handy tip. Let the greyhound choose you. That's how you know they're the right one for you! (MORE)

That's a very vague question. Nothing in particular has "happened" to Amtrak; the company wascreated in 1971 in an attempt to revitalize the flagging passengerrail service in the US. It hasn't been spectacularly successful,but it also hasn't been so abysmal that the government has yetdecided to com…pletely give up. Critics point out that Amtrak is not self-sufficient and requiressignificant subsidies from the federal government in order tocontinue operations. Proponents point out that so do competingforms of transportation, like highways and commercial airlines. Amtrak has been forced to close some routes due to unprofitability.Train travel in the US is dying largely because there's no goodreason for it. Airline travel is much faster (at roughly the sameprice for 21-day advance fares), and bus travel is no slower,usually noticeably less expensive, and generally offer moredeparture time options (many cities, even fairly major ones, in theUS see only a single train per day in each direction, which may beinconveniently early in the morning or inconveniently late atnight). The main exception is the Northeast Corridor (Washington DC -Philadelphia PA - New York NY - New Haven CT - Boston MA), wherethe rail lines are maintained to a higher speed standard, and thereare more frequent arrivals and departures. To a lesser extent, somemajor cities on or near the west coast have more frequent service(but, for the most part, only to other cities on or near the westcoast), and Chicago is a major hub of the Amtrak system, withfrequent arrivals and departures (though, again, usually only oneor two per day to any other given destination).

So first, I hope you talking about the dog, right? Not the bus company or else this answer is a waste of time :) lol, okay well for the DOG. We recently got a rescue greyhound (about a week ago), and let me tell you...they. are. perfect. Why? Well let's start with the fact that they barely shed and …barely ever bark (unless necassery, like a dog getting viscious at them). They have no bad dog smell. And are usually already house trained (if adopted from a rescue group). If you are going to adopt from a rescu agency, they will probably already be de-wormed, cleaned, spayed and/or neutered. they are generally healthy dogs. And to everyone's surprise....they are soooo lazy! Everyone thinks they run, run and run all day. That's what we thought too, but honestly, if you want them to run, they will, but other than that...they just sleep there. they adapt well to any life. We live in a condo in the city and ours is doing fine. They LOVE to please you and are just a joy to come home to. They will run and lick you for hours. And they just follow you around! Now, of course, they have their bad aspects, too, but that;s another story :) (MORE)
Greyhounds need to pass tests like chasing after a lure. If the greyhound does not take interest it either gets put down or given away. Another reason for not passing tests is often because of speed. Some hounds are just not competive.
All dogs can bite. Greyhounds off the track are prone to chasing and biting small furry animals.
The Old Norse cognate for the word "greyhound" is "grighund", whichis ultimately derived from the Old Norse "grig" meaning "bitch" and"hund" meaning "dog".
Amtrak is a train service that can take you to tons of places inthe USA,south Canada,and mexico.
