  1. Was not logged in again today. Clicked on the activities tab and was logged in.
  2. Website has logged me out again and logging in i got the same error message as the last three times: Sorry, there is a problem Something went wrong. Please try again. Error code: 2S119/1 On my desktop running Linux and Firefox.
  3. Killannie Died July 25, 2017 I miss her.
  4. 6 cups of 7% food has more total fat than 4 cups of 10% food.
  5. Frozen veggies dehydrate nicely, no mold or mush. Spread them out while frozen just like you would fresh veggies.
  6. Can steroid cause aggression? It does in human athletes. They call it 'roid rage'. I don't know why dogs would be any different.
  7. I don't remember Fly as being very afraid of thunder, and she doesn't mind snow, but my contact with her was limited to once a week. Some new dogs at the kennel settle in rapidly, but she seemed to take a little longer than some but less than others. Almost 3 weeks is almost no time. I have a 10 year old that can hold it 24 hours because she doesn't like to get wet.(i don't either ) Just remember she is a Greyhound but she is still a dog. Bill
  8. Looks like a simple problem, just adopt a Grey friend for her.
  9. Clarice is a sweet girl. The looks she gives me make it really hard to go home without her, and her two sisters are just as sweet.
  10. Normal resting heart rate in Greyhounds is 60-90.
  11. I don't know what good the FDA is going to do, they don't have a clue why 300 dogs have died. They also think it's a great idea to grow chickens in the US, ship them to China for "processing" and return the result to the US without "processed in China" labeling. Anybody want some unlabeled Chinese chicken soup?
  12. Change the fence to one he can see thru and he will have no need to jump on it to see whats going on.
  13. If you walk him with only a harness you should get a good martingale collar. You have to control the bitey end .
  14. The grass probably won't show up until tomorrow so be ready for "hangers".
  15. QCGA got four broodies in this week. We have seven available.
  16. Pam Try www.petdiabetes.com scroll down, there is a section on various blood draw sites with pictures. Bill
  17. My adoption group gets many greys with broken legs. We currently have four in recovery out of 19 greys. We have two 8'+10'pens in our outside turnout area the sick and injured are put in when their group is turned out. When the cast is removed they usually are still penned for 2 or 3 weeks. After that time they go out into the large turnout yard alone at turnout for several weeks. When the Vet or Medical Director decides the Grey has recovered enough it is returned to it's turnout group. I am unaware of any therapy used on our hounds.
  18. I gotta say it...maybe its your driving? He may outgrow it.
  19. I had a diabetic cat and could never get his insulin dosage regulated on dry cat food. His glucose levels went from 250 to 50 and back to 250. I finally decided to try canned cat food and bought a supply of 9 lives. His levels went to 95-115 with no insulin. It was evidently the carbohydrate amount in the dry food. He lived 6 years on canned food without insulin and died of liver/kidney failure at 17. Food can make a difference. ps. I have a One Touch Ultra blood glucose meter if anybody needs one. Works good but needs a battery.
  20. Make sure you pick up after him. Sliding into #2 would give a whole new meaning to sliding into second.
