  1. Thank you for the suggestions! This helps a lot.
  2. We’ve had Greyhounds for a dozen years, and never had any successfully back out of their martingale collars. But it has happened to each of our dogs in the last couple of weeks when encountering off-leash dogs. Yikes! It’s so scary. I am now shopping for “can’t-back-out-of” harnesses, and I would appreciate suggestions from the Greyhound community. Any guidance? (Yesterday, an aggressive Beagle slipped his collar from his owner and charged towards Runner, Fargo and me with teeth bared. It all happened so fast! As I screamed at the oncoming dog while trying to corral my
  3. Thank you, LaFlaca! Wow, 18 months? Yikes. I am so glad this protocol worked for you. We will suggest this treatment with our vet, and I hope we have the same success.
  4. Help... I have read a lot of references to the success of the Prison Protocol for treating hookworms on this forum, but I cannot find actual protocol. We adopted Fargo in December, and he came with hookworms. We just completed our first round of intensive treatment, and unfortunately, our poor boy still has hooks. We were advised that it could take several rounds of treatment to get rid of them. Since many of you have had success with getting rid of hooks using the Prison Protocol, would you direct me to it? Many thanks!
  5. Liverwurst. We cut it in treat-size pieces and keep it in a plastic container in the refrigerator. Both dogs go nuts for it. (Also an easy way to administer meds.)
  6. Dealing with SA must be so stressful and I feel for you. Is it possible to take him on a brisk 30-45 minute walk before leaving him alone?
  7. I am sorry. Godspeed, Beau.
  8. Thank you, dmdsmoxie, for the information about our new boy! We are looking forward to bringing him home and start spoiling him - just five more sleeps!
  9. We adopted Gunnah and we are going to bring him home next week. I understand he ran over 200 races at Derby Lane. Thanks.
  10. I just checked Heisman's lineage. A double-whammy... HB's Commander was his paternal great-grandsire and Wigwam Wag was his maternal grandsire. Sadly, we lost him to presumed osteo on 2/1/2016. (If interested, see "Remembering Heisman.")
  11. My parents' vet (years ago) had a big white Greyhound as their office dog. He did this. All of the sudden, he would just appear. Stealthily. Staring. Unnerving at first, but calming in no time. His name was Ghost.

    I am so sorry for your loss. RIP, Ryan.
  13. Crap. Heisman has HB Commander on his sire's side, and Wigwam Wag on his dam's side. He freaked us out for a several days when he started limping on his front right leg, but by the time I got him to the vet last Saturday, the limping had stopped. The vet detected a very small corn-like thing on his paw pad, but I swear I don't see it now. I am keeping a very close eye on him, and holding my breath. This is a lottery I certainly don't want us to win. Alex does not have any of these dogs in his lineage.
  14. I prefer the all-in-one leash-collar-combo, too. I have a few different kinds. You may like Jan's Martingales... They are heavy-duty with nice padded collars, yet very light-weight. No heavy hardware, Smart looking and reasonably-priced, too.
