  1. Bolt is in! Signed him up several months ago. He is number 5616.
  2. Can’t say enough about Olewo carrots. Have had my Grey on them for 2 years. Nary a loose stool.
  3. A word of caution about harnesses. If you have one that slips over his/her head and buckles under the belly, beware! The buckle sits just behind the front shoulder. Because Greyhounds have large shoulder muscles, if they turn quickly toward the buckle it will disengage the clip. This happened to me several times. At first, I thought it wasn’t buckled properly. However, after the third time, I figured out that was not the case. The large shoulder muscles on Greyhounds can easily compress the clip, disengage the buckle and he slips out of the harness. Luckily, I was able to react quickly enough
  4. Oleweo carrots are the answer; HOWEVER, make sure your Greyhound is clear of hookworms first. The carrots will firm up his stool ONLY if he(she) is clear of hookworms. Nothing will help if your dog has hookworms.
  5. The ice maker. He will run into the bedroom anytime I get ice from the frigid. Go figure.
  6. If he checks negative for Hookworns, you might want to consider Olewo dehydrated carrots. I had a similar problem with my Grey. Did extensive research (including this forum) and found out that a lot of people give their dogs this for loose stools/diarrhea. My Grey’s stool firmed up within 24 hours. I give it to him with every meal and haven’t had a problem since.
  7. Have had my 2+ year old red male Greyhound for about 4 months now. Love him to death. Virtually no issues, can leave him alone to roam the house for hours without a problem. Zero heath concerns. Zero stress issues. When I first got him, I would brush him every couple of days and get a small amount of hair, nothing unusual. Lately, when I brush him, nothing, nada, no hair. His coat is pristine. I should note that I live in Northeast Ohio and the weather the last 6 weeks has been extremely cold. Im probably OCD, but is there any reason for concern?
  8. New to site, first post. Have had my 2.5 year old male Greyhound for 3 months. When I got him he was about 3 weeks off the track and weighed 67 pounds. His ribs were prominent. The adoption agency said he was lean and could use another 3 to 5 pounds. I have been feeding him 2 cups of Purina Pro Plan Chicken and Rice with a little baked skinless chicken breast twice a day, about 1/3 cup. He loves it and it agrees with him. Solid stool,etc. He now weighs 70 pounds and I can only see an outline of his last couple ribs. Just right to my untrained eye. He gets 3 good walks a day, 20-40
