  1. Almost a year ago we lost Willow to liver cancer. It was fast...noticed she was losing weight, but still eager to go on walks and basically her normal self. Took her into the vet for a CBC and the liver results were bad. The vet wanted to look inside and told her that if it was cancer to not to wake her up. Very sad but it was for the best. Said goodbye to Willow before going to the vet with the knowledge that a quick end was better than a long drawn out one. Sometimes you just know...
  2. Love my boy, Hoku. Got him when he was two and never a problem. Boys seem to be more lovable than girls, yes I have had both. Super sweet but not clingy. He has never marked in the house...ours or anyone else’s. He has a funny habit of taking all his toys out the dog door. I scatter them about and Hoku finds them one at a time and carries them out. Silly boy!
  3. My fingers work best! Never have to hunt where they have gotten off to and the hounds seem to like it best.😉
  4. Welcome! San Diego is a lovely place, full of interesting things to do. Have you taken your hound to Coronado Beach? Such a cool place with temperatures warming up.
  5. How about a photo of the dog?! Downloaded the book and looking forward to reading the book!
  6. Where did you get the poster behind the sofa?! I want one.
  7. Try Fast Friends...they cover everything from San Diego to Reno. We live in Bishop CA (so near and yet so far) and have three greyhounds from them. We live at 4500’ and it does get cold here, frost some nights and even the occasional snow. Don’t get suckered into getting coats for them. The climate is dry desert and unless it is in the teens you won’t need one. Hope you find a hound soon!
  8. Or potato chips, you can't have just one.Started out with one, added one, oh, no not another! No sleep startling in any of them.
  9. Dogs are pack animals...see if one of your neighbors can walk their dog with you.
  10. We have three from Fast Friends. Since we live in Bishop Ca and closer to Reno NV the dogs started out there and transported to our area by Nevada Greyhound Rescue. Great people and all groups would love any help you can offer!
  11. We ate calling her Diva after our whippet who was also a solid golden brindle. She is three years old and only spent three months in a new home after foster care. She was on her way back to her foster home when she came by our dog park for a potty break. Our two greyhounds, the transfer dogs going to Reno NV, and Diva on her way to L.A., were having a nice romp in the park. Since they were all getting along well, I offered to take her. Good deal all around!
  12. And came home with a greyhound. How did that happen?! We already have two and usually meet up with the Fast Friends transport to Reno whenever they come through our town. They had a beautiful brindle girl that was a bounce back. Talk about an impulse buy... needless to say she came home with us. Everyone is adjusting easily and as soon as I figure out how to post a single photo and not everything in my album, Ill do it.
  13. Both of my greys came from Fast Friends. This Saturday we are meeting Gay at the halfway point, Bishop CA, on the way to Reno for the dogs on their way to their forever homes. What joy! Always nice to see all the people involved to make this happen.
  14. No response from my two. Bummer, I was really hoping for some action.
