  1. Jill and Phog say thank you rocket man for such a greyt idea! Kind of like a special toast to rocket!
  2. 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!
  3. I know - darned corns! Like with your Rex it broke our hearts to see him hobble. Phog is doing great! Thanks!!!
  4. 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!
  5. Birthday greetings and scratches to Katie!!! And many more ♥️♥️
  6. All greyhound people get it! Loved your stories....I feel like I knew Walter ♥️
  7. 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
  8. 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! ♥️
  9. Many thoughts and prayers coming your way. Phog had surgery last week - so the “scary surgery day” is a very fresh memory. Burdette will be in a very capable surgeons hands.
  10. I’m sure Dr Millard would be happy to talk to other vets too - she was very pleased with how the procedure went today. He is home! Of course the weather here (after months of dry weather) has turned damp - so until the bandages come off - we have to keep them dry when leash walking ☹️ They sent him home with iv bag coverings 😂😂 but my brilliant hubby has taken a pair of his bike socks and is spraying the bottoms with flex steel paint - hopefully the invented socks will be easier to put on and take off. I’ll keep you posted on his recovery and success (hopefully) thursday update - he h
  11. I’m so sorry - they Take a piece of your heart. From experience and our vets advice - always better a day too early than a day too late. You gave wags the greatest gift of love.
  12. As always GT is the best for advice, help and friendship. Thank you so much to greytpups and fiveRooooers for all your guidance and PMs. Phog has fought Corns since we got him - we have tried everything - and I mean everything. I have been researching and following flexor tenotomy surgery since we first heard about it (on GT, I’m pretty sure)... Wednesday he is having the surgery. Believed to be the first in KC. thanking all here for thoughts and prayers in advance.
  13. The walk is never long enough........tonight a toast to the fabulous Rocket.
  14. That is awesome! We had our vet consult last week and are trying to make a decision - i so wish I had a crystal ball - and thank you so much for posting!!
  15. We are considering flexor tenotomy for phog. He has struggled with corns so and will hardly let us look at his feet. We have spoken with a surgeon. We don’t do Facebook so we aren’t able to access any info posted there. Is scary- but if it worked he would be such a very happy boy
  16. Pemphigus???? Phog had lesions with his - he’s in remission now - he sees allergy vet specialist
  17. Phog list pigment in his nose - it was dry and cracked looking - pemphigus - he is in remission now! He sees an allergy vet.
  18. You’ve been missed! So happy you have a new, and very handsome, love in your life! Keep posting pictures of this hunk!
  19. We’ve had various combos over the years .... our “best buddy” combos have come when we take ours with us to the kennel and let them chose the new one. Surprising how many times there is a clear choice and the easy transition when we let them pick 😀
  20. He is stunning! Congrats on your new baby.
