One other thing I want to mention is that eBay is a wonderful place to find vintage and one of a kind Greyhound sculptures and other artwork. If you have not dipped your toe in the eBay world yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. I suspect there will be some fantastic pieces (and prices) coming up in the near future. Many pieces are pre-owned, but that doesn't make any difference to a cast bronze work of art like this!
Hopefully, some of these suggestions will inspire you to spruce up your place and you will be on your way to happy puppy chic!
