  1. I am so sorry. Fly-free sweetie.
  2. I am so sorry. I hope Petunia is doing okay. Hugs to all of you.
  3. We were full-timers for 5.5 years. We started out with two greyhounds, but Scout died in our 3rd year. Before we went full-time, we camped quite a bit. All of our greys have loved it. We did have some issues with some parks not allowing large dogs, so that was probably our biggest problem. Our last RV had a generator that would kick on if the power went out, so that was nice. We have just started camping in a van with our greyhound. We purchased a pet cam for the van so that we can check on him when we are not there. We have it positioned so that we can see the thermometer that we placed on the wall. We are headed out next week for two weeks and then we are going for a long trip from August - October. It is a 20' van, so it is really tiny. Jaxson did great on a test run last week. My advice is to always go out of the RV first. We would walk down the steps backwards and they would follow. I have seen many dogs run down the steps with their person behind them. It is dangerous for all. I met a lady whose Golden had run down the steps first and fell through the steps. He ended up loosing that leg. I am not trying to scare you, but just inform you. If you go down first, you can control their speed. Oh and our girl Scout, she never would go up the steps without us lifting her butt to the first step.
  4. Welcome to your new home Starz! You are beautiful!!!!
  5. He is adorable and looks like a puppy. Congrats!!!
  6. I am so sorry. My guy broke his leg and it was then when we discovered it was cancer. It was terrible and shocking. I will never forget that day. Run free, Charlie. You were loved and will never be forgotten.
  7. Two of my greys came through Teddy. She definitely devouted her life to greys.
  8. I am so sorry. She is so young. I am sending you good thoughts. I know you will do whatever is best for her.
  9. I am so sorry. I know how hard it is without him because I have been where you are. When I lost my Joey, I was lost. I called him my boyfriend. We had a bond much like you and Walter. I knew in my heart that my boy was leaving me before my head did. I saw the signs and even asked him if he was saying good-bye to me. I felt so empty without him. I felt incomplete. I felt like I was in a fog. I loved hearing all the stories of you and Walter! He was truly a wonderful boy and such a special companion. He will be with you always! Be kind to yourself.
  10. I am so sorry to hear that he has made his way to the Rainbow Bridge. I enjoyed hearing all his stories and seeing pictures of him. He was a special boy who brought laughter and joy to us. He will be missed but never forgotten.
  11. Congratulations and welcome!!! He is gorgeous!
  12. I am so sorry. I remember her from way back when she was MaryJo's foster and I have enjoyed following her life. Hugs to you!
  13. I found a place on Etsy that offers personalized dog cookie cutters. They have a greyhound! Jaxson gave out treats to all his doggy friends for Christmas. Here is the link if anyone is interested: https://www.etsy.com/listing/266386988/labrador-retriever-cookie-cutter-custom?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=customized dog cookie cutter&ref=sr_gallery-1-16&fbclid=IwAR0F4nryg51QsSapuo57_wcuQW_JxDptj2_F7t7HSUKOBqfwDSw3fn1glgo
  14. Congratulations!!!! She is a beautiful baby! I love the family photo.
  15. Wow, I didn't post it asking if people liked the image. I posted it for anyone who like me has a dog who is a stakes winner and may not know about the t-shirt. I am not in love with the t-shirt design or even the color but because it has my guy's name on it and since he has passed, I wanted it. My husband and I are proud to show people his name on the shirt.
  16. The Greyhound Hall of Fame is selling a Festival of Stakes Winner t-shirt. It has all the winners printed on the back. My guy that died last year, UCME Bubbasparks, is on it so I ordered one earlier this week and it arrived today. I wanted to pass on the information incase there is anyone else here who had a stakes winner. It is $15.99 and the shipping is free.
