  1. Beware of Phog aka Phog dog, phoggy, phogster. Years ago We were honored to be offered a chance to name an unraced puppy.....as KU alumni and basketball fans we chose “Beware of Phog” for his name. He raced 104 times at derby lane ... stakes caliber guy. Many of you cheered us on in the gt “watching and waiting” thread. When his career ended with injury his owner agreed he should spend his retirement being part of our family. We drove to florida and picked him up and he acted like he’d known us forever - our first visit ever to a track and his kennel could not have been nicer seeing Phog
  2. I am so sorry - our sympathy and many hugs.
  3. The walk is truly never long enough. My sympathy and many hugs to you
  4. Sorry - PADS NOT PAWS 😂😂😂
  5. Phog had the flexor tenetomy surgery last October - I’ve posted on gt about our experience....he had the new surgery that goes thru the back of the leg above the paw and it was very reasonable (he had 3 legs and 4 paws done poor guy!). I would do it again in a nano second! If you can’t find my posts thru search pm me and I’ll happily answer any questions u have
  6. That sounds perfect.....so sweet. We all grieve, but the innocence and love of a child is so special.
  7. Virtual hugs to you. Along with our sympathy
  8. Of course on all the photos - what comforts you will comfort children as well. Our Ronee (rollover ronee) passed away when our grandboys were 2 and 4. They live close and were here frequently pre-pandemic. Ronee was the favorite of our 3 greyhounds - super soft and always gentle ...the boys were frequently found curled up with Ronee on her bed sleeping. For a year or so after Ronee died the second the boys came over their first comments were about Ronee “where’s Ronee” “Ronee died didn’t she?” “Is Ronee still in heaven?” “We miss Ronee” . We would quietly say we missed Ronee too and tha
  9. Welcome back! Great pics (again)
  10. On January 3rd, Teddy Palmer’s birthday, Halfway home greyhounds in Tulsa, OK officially posted on their website: “With the changing racing greyhound industry and many of the greyhound farms closing, there are fewer greyhounds that need homes. With the lack of greyhounds along with family health issues, it is with sadness and a ”greyt” sense of accomplishment, that halfway Home Greyhound Adoption closed its doors in 2020. Since 2001 we have helped over 6,670 racing and farm greyhounds move into adoption groups and forever homes. Thank you - we could not have done this without you
  11. Welcome and you’re welcome here no matter if your new greyhound is adopted after (or before 😂) racing or not! Mine are all adopted ex racers so I’m of no help to you either. But a big hello.
  12. Hi there - bluey is quite handsome! Looks like a keeper to us 😃. Welcome to gt
  13. Omg - great way to start my morning with a laugh!
  14. Phog says welcome to the elite eight annie! Happy birthday
  15. Jill and Phog say thank you rocket man for such a greyt idea! Kind of like a special toast to rocket!
  16. Oh thank you! I agree - bring on Thanksgiving! Oh wait - were by ourselves this year 😁. Seriously tho.....one of my all time favorite gt pics!
  17. I know - darned corns! Like with your Rex it broke our hearts to see him hobble. Phog is doing great! Thanks!!!
  18. So far we are really impressed - his gait is now smooth! So good to see. I know some are having good success with cimetidine (Tagamet). But Phog has a heart murmur and also is in remission from a bout of pemphigus (probably spelled wrong!) and still takes low dose meds for that - so we never tried that route. I’ll try to update if there’s any change - and let you know when the corns have all (or have not) exfoliated. GreytOwl When you have a few more posts you can message me and feel free to do so!
  19. Birthday greetings and scratches to Katie!!! And many more ♥️♥️
  20. All greyhound people get it! Loved your stories....I feel like I knew Walter ♥️
  21. Phog has suffered with 4 corns on 3 of his feet since we adopted him. When we first heard about Dr Mike Guilliard flexor tenotomy surgery on gt, of course, we were hopeful. Started following the results. About a year ago we started inquiring around the kc area to find a vet that had or would do the procedure. Last summer we were referred to Dr Heather Millard, a surgeon at blue pearl Overland Park. So weird with COVID protocol that we’ve never met her! At our phone consultation during her initial exam of Phog she seemed quite knowledgeable on the anatomy and basis of the surgery - she im
  22. Jan - I cant tell you how many mornings Cletus stories were part of our breakfast table! What a great story - from the beginning of his happy home with you until he crossed the bridge. We will all miss Cletus shenanigans. Thank you for sharing this special old fella with all of us! ♥️
