  1. Today at ~11:30am, I received what seemed like a punch in the gut and the vet confirmed that Tag had Osteocarcoma. He's only 6 1/2 years old, he'll be 7 in November. I've only had him at home for 3 years, although I was fortunate enough to spend time with him in his racing kennel from the moment he came in at 18 months. I just can't believe it..... he is such a happy, outgoing hound..... I will wrap my mind around this and do what he needs me to do over the next several months but right now... today... my stomach hurts and all I want to do is cry. I know there are so many others out here that have dealt with this and I know that you guys are the best bunch there is. Thank you for letting my cry on your shoulders and for your support. Kelly
  2. I haven't been able to contact my GH trainer friend and one of my greys appears to have torn a muscle in his rear leg. He is retired and was just running for fun when apparently this happend. There is swelling and brusing. I'm not sure whether to try to wrap it to help with the swelling or what to do. Any advice/suggestions from folks familiar with racing injuries would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!
  3. Josh left us just before Thanksgiving 2007 due to liver failure. It was sudden and unexpected but even though I tried to do everything possible to keep him with me, he let me know that it was time. I caught myself calling one of the boys Josh the other day.... it took me by surprise but I smiled remembering my big silly brindle Irish boy. Josh loved to run and was so funny to watch because I swear his back end went faster than his front. LOL I will never forget his last trip to the Race the Wind gathering when he took off in one of the sprint runs. He was the happiest hound ever but then he was always happy. Then there was ofcourse Shawn, my heart hound who I still think of and miss every day. His unexpected passing took me to my knees but I do appreciate all that he taught me. http://forum.greytalk.com/index.php?showtopic=129328&hl= I don't know how they do it but somehow this breed makes our hearts bigger and capable of more love than we thought possible. Maybe somehow through our loving them and their unconditional amount of love for us, they show us the true meaning of acceptance and unconditional love giving us their lasting priceless gift. I miss you boyz.....

    Oh, Kathy, I am so very sorry. I know that nothing can help the pain go away right now but know that there are a lot of people that care about you and are thinking about you. I remember watching Dweebis run at the fun run in Abilene, what a beautiful sight. I lost Josh just a couple weeks ago to liver and kidney failure. I hope they are having a greyt party and watching over us. Big hugs to you my friend!

    Mary, I am so very sorry for your loss. Freddie had a fantastic live with you and Bob. He was a very special hound and had a huge fan club both here and in Houston. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure Shawn found Freddie and they are having a greyt time waiting to see us again. Hugs to you my friend.
  6. Diane also welcomed my boy, Shawn, to the family when he crossed the bridge on March 23, 2006. I can't explain how much it has meant to me when I read the stories and Diane has included Shawn. The tears come, but they are more from joy than from sadness. Thank you Diane for all you do.... for your friends, your greys, and all of our bridge angels. Beauty, grace, power, and heart - Shawn, my best friend... I still miss you everyday...
  7. Thank you! If you don't mind me asking, did she get this injury playing in the backyard?
  8. One of my boys has a bowed tendon in his front leg. The x-rays show that the stopper is not involved, thank goodness, so this is just related to the tendon. I was hoping that some of the kennel owners or someone might have had this sport injury before and could offer some words of wisdom. What type of rehab regimen was followed? How long was the recovery? What shape was the grey in after having this type of injury? Any other advice and/or comments would be greytly appreciated! Thank you very much! Kelly and the boyz
  9. Diane, I am so very sorry... My deepest sympathies...

  12. A beautiful tribute to your beautiful girl. I know your pain and I'm here if you need or want to talk. Take care, I'm thinking of all of you.
  13. Oh, Kathy.... I am so very, very sorry for your loss. I know how much you love Girliekins and what a wonderful mom you are. Trust and know that you did the best by your darling girl. I know too well how you are feeling and my heart goes out to you. I hope Shawn and Girliekins are running together pain free at the bridge. Very big hugs, my friend. Kelly
  14. Diane, Thank you for continuing to update this thread. It means more to me and I'm sure to many of us than one could ever imagine. Sweet dreams our angels... I love you, Shawn...
