  • "greyhound" comb

    I know what they are and all that but How did they ever get that name???? A greyhound would never need to be combed. Calling them a poodle comb or somthing would make more sence as you have to comb a poodle but a greyhound?

    Sorry I know its an off the wall guestion. Just one of the random ways my brain jumped and I just can't stop thinking about it. So have at it and give it your best guess.

    I had asked the same question at my job. The response was they are grey and long and sleek. go figure.

        That could be an acurate. But what a crazy way to get a name.

        I am just finishing my second gross anatomy class and often structures are named for what they suposto resemble except i often think whoever named them was high on somthing at the time.

          Actually, it's the name of the company that makes them, not the name for the comb itself. Greyhound makes other grooming tools, as well- I've got one of their pin brushes, like it alot- the comb is just the most well known.
