  1. It can be hard at times Pam - I'm constantly catching myself thinking or about to say something negative and then have to quickly turn it around.
  2. DOES YOUR GREYHOUND 'UNDERSTAND 'EVERY WORD YOU SAY'? The photo below shows my beloved first greyhound Charlie with me a month before the end of his life. He'd had degenerative myelopathy for about three years at this point - managed very well with multiple 5-10 minute walks every day, weekly hydrotherapy sessions and ramps for steps and the car. Even so, you can see that his back legs had lost a lot of muscle by this point due to this progressive neurological condition. However, on this occasion he had still managed to climb with relative ease (my partner was with me and w
  3. Thank you so much Greysmom for all of the information! I won't be driving as although I'm entitled to a rental car free with my flight package I don't fancy driving in a strange to me country, especially on my own. I think I may have to ask the hotel if they can suggest something - coach trip or something. I really do fancy a trip to the coast so will have to see if they have anything on offer. I'd have loved to be able to come to your adoption group's picnic but I'm flying home on the 18th. Maybe another time! Do you know what shopping will be like in Medford? I fancy shopping for clothes whi
  4. Thanks MerseyGrey! You're very welcome to come for a visit. We have a lovely nature reserve across the road which is great for walks. Thanks for the info about Astoria and Yaquina - I'll look them up.
  5. Hi everyone I haven't been on here for a couple of years. My name is Kay aka Hawthorn After my beloved litter mates Sunny and Sophie passed away in the summer of 2016 I decided to set up a luxury home boarding service for greyhounds - Always Greyhounds Home Boarding - at my home in Hertfordshire, UK. This took off really quickly and I was soon inundated with lovely greyhounds and their equally lovely owners - I insist on only having lovely clients. I also have a website for this service: Always Greyhounds Home Boarding I also qualified as an Emotion Code practitioner and
  6. I never crated any of mine either; they all slept in my room from day one.
  7. Yes, I used liquid B12 for mine. I used the human dose for them (one drop which was around 90mcg) but I was able to use a form of muscle-testing (kinesiology) to determine the correct dosage for each of them. I used a brand called Metabolics, which is very pure, but don't know if available in the US.
  8. You can't be certain there is no medical issue, despite what your vet said. The only time my beloved boy almost bit me was when he had a neck issue which had been completely missed by our regular vet and was later found by a greyhound vet.
  9. "Some souls have a connection that lasts for all eternity". Tao Sunny and Sophie
  10. My late boy Sunny developed very severe IMPA at the same age but we managed it and he lived until he was 11.5. I understand that the severity of this disorder varies greatly and that some dogs only have once incident whereas others, like Sunny, have relapses and require lifelong treatment. Let me know if you need to know anything else.
  11. I'd also consider trying some calming supplements for the next few months. There are various ones available and each dog responds differently to each one, but I had good results with Zylkene for one of mine, at the maximum dose stated on the pack.
  12. If all his ribs are showing he is underweight.
  13. Sounds like he needs three meals a day. 10 hours is a long time to go without food isn't it. I'd give him another cup of kibble at lunchtime and possibly also another half cup at bedtime too. I also wouldn't worry at all about how much others are feeding their dogs. If your dog is underweight it's not going to hurt to give him another cup of kibble and you can always cut down later on if he starts to get too fat. I used to feed my greyhounds four meals a day.
  14. Welcome and congratulations on your new family member! I live in Hertfordshire and have had four ex-racers from the RGT over the years. My last two passed away in August and I am taking a break from having my own greyhounds for a while, but have started a grey-sitting business so I can still get my fix! Hope you enjoy GreyTalk.
