  1. One GRtB vendor. Other vendors there chose not to advertise through Greyhounds Reach the Beach® so we have no knowledge of how many.
  2. The main location for Greyhounds Reach the Beach® this year is the Hyatt Place in Dewey Beach. Inside will be vendors, speakers, a Wednesday night Social and vendor Open House, a Saturday night Greyhounds in Art show, and much more. Additional GRtB vendors will be located in the parking lot on the south side of the Hyatt, in Grotto Pizza (Dewey location) and one vendor will be located in the Rehoboth Beach Fire Hall. The Blessing of the Hounds will take place on the bay beach on the south side of the Hyatt. There will also be a parade down the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. There will be Greyhou
  3. To clarify, Petsmart is not a vendor. Reps from their store in Rehoboth Beach will be there giving away freebies, such as doggy bags and coupons for a free Express bath to everyone registered for Greyhounds Reach the Beach® ($29 value). Additionally, the website for Greyhounds Reach the Beach® is www.GRtB.org.
  4. Use Burt's Bee Hot Spot Spray and add Cod Liver Oil to his food. You don't need fancy "pet" cod liver oil, just get a bottle from your local pharmacy usually in the aisle with vitamins and supplements. Don't wrap or otherwise cover up the area, it needs air. Keeping it moist all the time will never allow it to heal. Just keep an eye on him for at least 10 minutes after applying.
  5. Aww Cleo, how I have loved you from afar since learning that you were "family". You were a "sister from another litter" to my beloved Tuna (Zealya), you and her had the same parents. Perhaps you will meet her now. My condolences.
  6. My deepest condolences on the passing of your beloved Tessa. She will remain forevermore in your heart. May memories of happier times help comfort you.
  7. Well, now the foster pup has it. Therefore, it's definitely something contagious between the dogs. No! I put up 6 and 1/2 foot reed fencing over the chain link so that won't happen anymore.
  8. No rawhide here! Well, however it happened I guess I will wash all bedding and the 'popular' toys.
  9. Thanks for the input. No outdoor birdbath, or bird feeder for that matter. Nothing inside, or outside, they could have gotten into. No other symptoms, just the worse diarrhea ever. Maybe I need to remove all dog toys and wash them, too? Eesh, that's got to be nearly 100 stuffies (toy baskets in 3 different rooms).
  10. Fintan the borzoi started with diarrhea last Thursday morning. Do you have any idea how disgusting it is to wash diarrhea off fur a furry borzoi butt?! Yuck. Then Harkan the Italian greyhound started having diarrhea Thursday evening. I withheld food from both for a day and a half, then fed them white rice and baked chicken breast. Fintan's diarrhea finally stopped yesterday, and Harkan's stopped today. This morning, Nola the borzoi-saluki started having diarrhea so I guess that means the foster puppy (saluki) will be next. This is the first time I have had one dog after the next come down with
  11. The reed fencing arrived, so glad I went with 6 and 1/2 ft tall. Tomorrow I put it up, wish me luck!
  12. Ordered fencing to put up temporarily until I can afford a permanent solution. It's reed fencing and each section is 13 ft. long and 6 and 1/2 ft. tall. I will use zip ties to secure it to the chain link fence. http://www.amazon.com/Gardman-R668-Reed-Fencing-long/dp/B000VYNKFC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1384198246&sr=8-2&keywords=Gardman+r668
  13. Actually I need to extend my privacy fence which is in front of the chain link fence. I put up the section of privacy fence years ago, to block out that neighbor. I ran it as far as the huge bush because it is even taller than the privacy fence, plus that as all I could afford. The food dump was right where the privacy fence ends. Grrrr.
  14. 3greytjoys: I could not get a picture of the scene, it was too dark. I clean the yard of feces morning and evening, and there is no urine order. Only my IG barks, and I stay outside with him. When Fin and Nola are alone in the yard, they simply stand quietly at the gate waiting for me to bring them back in.
  15. MYSTERY SOLVED So, after early 5 hours at the e-vet, 6 x-rays and $600 the only thing that could be determined was that Fintan's stomach was distended with "amorphous granular material and gas" and no intestinal obstruction, no evidence of bloat. The simple answer was that Fin had more food than was expected in his stomach. Tonight about 1/2 hour after dinner, I put Fin and Nola in the backyard and went back inside for a few minutes to do dishes. I returned outside, called for them, and neither came which is highly unusual. I took a flashlight to search the dark areas of the yard and th
  16. I arrived home an hour or so ago. Fintan seems fine. I have a CD of his x-rays from the e-vet so if he has another episode of whatever that was, there will be something to compare to. Thanks again for everyone's thoughts and concerns, much appreciated.
  17. The pet sitter arrived at my house around 6 am and Fintan was fine. She kept him on leash outside and per my request did not feed him breakfast. I figure if his stomach is so full, there is no sense adding to it. I asked her to add another visit today in the early afternoon. I will be back at dinner time and plan to feed him rice and plain chicken. I had horrible dreams last night, dreamt that Fin died.
  18. Apparently he is burping a lot. So the vet agreed Pepcid would be best.
  19. I am not comfortable with the treatment he is receiving at the e-vet. I will be much more comfortable taking him to his regular vet, or the e-vet up the way in Pennsylvania if needed tomorrow. Come morning if he is not well, I will return home to care for him. Thanks, everyone. He screams out after swallowing the food. Thanks for being the # 1 Fintan fan!!
  20. I don't want him sedated and on IV fluids and pain med drip all night. No reason I see for that. I am just going to have the dog sitter take him home, and hope he's fine overnight. I will have her give him Pecid or Gax-x, how much should a nearly 100 pound dog get? She has been dealing with this for 3 hours now and the e-vet has not determined anything.
  21. So seems my options for Fintan staying there are A) Kept as a medical patient, IV fluids, pain meds, checked on my vet tech overnight and if anything comes up doctor will see him, repeat X-rays in morning $1600 + total B ) Released as a medical patient and boarded overnight, no one checking on him overnight. Option B is out. I asked what about him being an overnight patient, but no IV fluids and pain meds, rather just something for his stomach. They did not like that and the vet tech's response was if there was a financial reason and I said no, simply that I want what is medically nec
  22. I would be making the drive on my own. I I would have to make the drive on my own. I am at the hotel room, anyone who could possibly help me with the drive is out to dinner and I know everyone will be having a bit too much wine. I have Harkan my IG here with me. Thanks for the suggestions of things to ask. It is the only emergency vet in the whole county and open 24 hours. I just want to be with him.
