  3. Hi everyone! My name is Alicia, it's been years since I've been active on GT. I came here on a whim today and was happy to see so many new members, but also so sad to see many pups who have passed. In the time I dropped off from GT, life has changed so much! Sterling and I got married, bought a new house, had a baby, and grown Wetherby's immensely. Our two hounds, puppy Truman (8-years-old now) and Wolfgang (5-years-old) are still with us and doing great. [Folks often recognize Truman at events, and I am happy to report he is still grumpy as ever, and makes his presence known everywhere we go.] We also have a very special Oriental cat named Chippy, who is equally grumpy and full of sass. I am very excited to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. Once I figure out how to attach photos, I'll share a few of our family.
  4. I'm in the market for a popup ex-pen for Truman to use when we're at events. Need it to be: Tall enough to accommodate Truman Not very see-through (T-man is dog reactive) Have a top or a sun-shade, something to shade him in hot weather Easy to transport I'm thinking about something like this... anybody have feedback?
  5. Dog is 2-years-old. Anyone hear if this affects PA?
  6. One of my friends just adopted a new greyhound. When she went to sign him up for a plan with Healthy Paws, the only option given was for a plan with 70% co-insurance and a $500 deductible. She called, and customer service stated that currently that is the only plan they are offering for purebred greyhounds. Is there a second choice pet insurance company that folks have had good luck with? Specifically, she wants to make sure that the plan doesn’t roll over from year to year, causing previous claimed medical incidents to become pre-existing conditions. She also wants a plan that reimburses dollar for dollar what the vet charges- not on a national or regional average fee schedule. Thanks in advance! (I haven’t been on GT in awhile, but I knew this was the best place to ask.)
  7. Ah! We ate two doors down at Little Venice. Re: the bridal parties. Im afraid they are here to stay. Got jammed up with a bridal party at Lucky Hare in FEBRUARY. GTFOH. Will have to try Warhorse next year. We did Lucky Hare (great), Bandwagon (okay) and Scalehouse (food>beer).
  8. Thats what we thought too. Very pretty place, though.
  9. Hi. I make martingales. Any fabric print or pattern you can think of. http://www.etsy.com/shop/wetherbymartingaleco
  10. Yes, absolutely. T-shirts, tanks, sweatshirts. New designs. We'll actually have two full vendor spaces this year.
  11. Quick update on Truman. The internal medicine specialist called back today with some preliminary bloodwork results. The total T4 came back at 0.9, so increasing a little, but still low. Another interesting find was that the protein in his urine was high. The doctor is sending it over for a protein to creatinine ratio test. He didn't want to get into possibilities for that (yet) until the MSU panel and other urine test come back. But I'm a little curious as to what this could mean. Thoughts?
  12. Used Iams for years, and it started seeming like there were quality control issues. We'd get one bag, and it'd be fine. The next bag, neither dog would touch it. The company always offered to have the bags replaced free of charge, but it started to be a huge pain. Eventually switched to Fromm's in the purple bag. It's the cheapest, most basic formula they make. Has beet pulp and chicken-based. That was almost 2 years ago, and *knock on wood* no issues.
  13. Here's my boy being long at the vet. He was very good. Peed for his urine test and acted good for bloodwork. They gave him a giraffe printed bandage.
  14. We have a decent amount of beer- and wine-themed collars for anyone wishing to pre-purchase with their desired width, size, and hardware choices. The deadline to order is 7/20. Some of these will be available at the event, but quantities are very, very limited.
  15. Trumie is going to see the internal medicine specialist at University Vets today (the same clinic where Dr. Couto practices oncology). I anticipate he'll have some bloodwork, which I can request be reviewed by Dr. Couto. I appreciate everyone's feedback. I think we definitely need the MSU panel for a more specific look at the thyroid. I'm hoping they can advise on a regimen for pain or different anxiety meds if the thyroid isn't the answer.
