During one trip Jay seen a sign about adopting greyhounds and it peaked his interest. Then in 2023, Jay pursued adoption. "I asked about a boy dog that Greyhound Mid-South Adoption Option had. That dog wasn't there but they wanted to show me this little girl dog named Endless Talk," Jay said. "Endless Talk turned 15 this year and we had a party for her. It's rare a greyhound lives to this age," Jay added.
