  1. Hummm.... not sure. This Alicia doesn’t make jewelry - she makes awesome collars and clothing (https://www.etsy.com/shop/WetherbyMartingaleCo?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=674535711&ga_search_query=wetherby martingale). I’m not sure who might have made those, but they are pretty cool!
  2. That was probably Beth Wade - https://www.etsy.com/listing/130916145/personalized-greyhound-necklace?ref=shop_home_active_13
  3. Welcome back! Although since I see you at greyhound events, I forget that you haven’t been on GT in awhile.
  4. I’m so sorry for your loss. Holly was a sweet soul and will be missed.
  5. Happy Black Dog Day from our pack, past and present... Darcy, Faye Oops, Beatrix and Encarna. Black is beautiful!
  6. We canceled our reservations at the Beach House Dewey yesterday. I'm likely having surgery in October (consult is October 2) and my husband is still unemployed. Hopefully we'll be able to come next year.
  7. I'm so sorry for your loss. You're right about age being the most difficult. They do let you know. I'm glad you were willing to listen.
  8. For many years we had 3 or 4 greyhounds/galgos. For the past two years, we've had only 2. We could definitely manage with more, but we'd never go back to that number again. Two is just so much easier. We love to travel with our dogs, but many hotels have a 2 pet limit. When we had 3 or 4 dogs, we'd have to find two homes willing to pet-sit and split up the pack. Not to mention the additional vet, food, and other expenses. When we had multiples, we always had females. Never had an issue, even when we'd dog-sit our friends male dogs. I really don't think gender is a big factor. It's more about personalities.
  9. I'm so sorry for your loss. It's never easy, especially when so young.
  10. We have reservations at the Beach House motel, but DH recently lost his job. So, whether or not we’re able to go completely depends on his job situation.
  11. So sorry, Jen. Both of the above ideas are good ones. We recently had a 6x6 painting done for Tricia & Burke for River. I'm not sure if that is something Dave would appreciate or not, but here is the artist we used - Shamrock Studios
  12. We were very fortunate with the weather this year. Most days were in the upper 70s to low-mid 80s... which for this Virginia girl, was "cool." As Sara mentioned, all the wineries have AC or fans too. If you decide to come back one year, you can join us for a trail ride. We did our second one this year with Painted Bar Stables. Erika and her crew are fantastic!
  13. Fantastic pictures, as always. Encarna was definitely channeling River. She really loved her too. I’m glad we had a good week, especially now that the s**t hit the fan when we got home today.
  14. Our galgo Rhythm gets seasonal allergies resulting in red, itchy paws. He was on Apoquel last year for a few months. Our vet would prescribe it in 30 day increments and required bloodwork before the next refill. They definitely had concerns about its impact on his system, but did not mention cancer. After that experience, we switched them to Fromm Four Star feed and switch out the protein sources with each bag. It hasn’t had a negative impact on their systems and our two galgos seem to appreciate the variety. I can’t say that it helped with Rhythm’s allergies though as they did come back this past month, although not as bad as last year. I’m still holding off on putting him back on Apoquel. We tried adding natural local honey to his feed from a friend’s farm, but that didn’t make any difference. More recently, I started him on this supplement from a company that makes my horse’s supplements. I’ve seen real improvement from the supplement I give my horse, so it was worth a shot. He’s only been on it for a few days now so it’s too early to tell. As of right now, Rhythm will still chew on his feet, but it’s not constant. https://nouvelleresearch.com/index.php/product/cur-ost-sa-total-support
  15. Right?!? We’re staying inside this weekend. The weather next week looks fantastic!
