Grey Pup

Grey Pup (4/9)

  1. Summertime can be tough on the furry! I made this video to help newer greyhound owners know when panting is at an OK level, and how to know when it's of concern. Even after 24 years of owning greyhounds, I was fascinated to learn exactly how all that panting they do works. If you have a greyt tip about panting, please share it here with the rest of us.
  2. Does part of the process include biting a few random ones, until you perfect the "bite-size?"
  3. Whether your grey is a lionhearted, like the dogs in this video; or more like my Lily, I think you'll get a kick out of this. ...especially the blooper clip, where Lily is not quite ready for prime time!
  4. Grace's experience with the embedded grit made me think, how about an warm epsom salt soak or cloth? I've had good luck with bringing deep infection and embedded debris to the surface with epsom salts. Apply for 10 minutes, dry it, finish with a light coating of antibiotic ointment (3 times a day). If nothing else, it will be really clean! A doctor taught me how to do this, years ago, when I had an abcess. It's a good, gentle therapy. Gail
  5. Now that Lily is done hijacking my computer, having been lured away with a treat, I can share my video. I'd love to hear if people here love the same things about their greys as I do, or if there's a whole 'nother dimension of things to love about them that I missed?
  6. hi lily heer i don't like polly-ticks dear-ticks r priddy bad 2
  7. I'd love to get a nice, big summer safety tip thread going here. Even after decades with greyhounds, I still run across safety tips I never heard before. For instance, I didn't realize that on July 4th, more pets get lost than any other day of the year. This video has more helpful tips. Fill in the many I have missed, and help keep all our greys safer this summer! Thanks! Gail
  8. I'm so sad to read this. All comfort to you and your family, especially your kids, as if this year hasn't been hard enough for them. {{{{{hugs}}}}} Gail
  9. I was surprised to learn that they can gnaw or lick for very different reasons. Have a look, and tell me about your experiences with this behavior. Thanks, Gail
  10. My Shannon could eat anything; but if Lily gets anything with even a smidge of bell pepper, things get...ugly. How about you?
  11. Enjoy, friends! I learned quite a bit, and make sure you can also check out all the sources I used, too - Some great reading there!
  12. Do you give your hounds bananas? Has too much sugar ever caused a problem for your pup?
  13. I was pretty amazed at what I learned about the potential effects of something that I would've thought would be a healthy snack for greys. Hope you find it as interesting as I did!
