  1. https://www.veterinarypracticenews.com/university-of-minnesota-develops-cancer-drug-that-helps-dogs-with-hemangiosarcoma/?fbclid=IwAR21pP5UpOyBQVYP12Sq-btrJllizKPfGDmtWrvmLzaqQnmHsK2gNfG21mo We lost our second greyhound to hemangiosarcoma 22 years ago. He amazingly made it just short of 1 year post diagnosis and tumor rupture.
  2. Our silly boy has been gone 3 years. We lost him much too soon.

    I am so sorry you had to say goodbye to your Bisbee.
  4. When I contacted UW Madison asking why greyhounds were not included in the study they said the breeds they chose had a higher incidence of cancer.

  6. Who was the couple who always bought peeps in bulk for their bunch of "kids"? I remember the posts and seeing pictures in the past but haven't seen any in a long time. I think of them when we give Miriam peep's as treats. They are low copper and she gets them as dessert.

    I am so sorry.
  8. I actually contacted Colorado State University when I first saw that this study was going to be done because they only wanted specific breeds and greyhounds weren't one of the breeds they wanted. When I asked why they weren't included, they said that only wanted dog breeds that are at "higher than average" cancer risk, and greyhounds don't fall into that category.
  9. This is supposed to be the largest trial in history https://www.channel3000.com/news/uw-veterinary-care-clinic-could-find-vaccine-for-cancer-in-dogs-and-possibly-humans/912956241?fbclid=IwAR2nXQEOueNPLCKvbt2nKzThtSJ0yO1evYuoz_lmsMWYP-sTXnlvTcTBmpQ
  10. I am so sorry for your loss. Seems like a crowd is gathering at the bridge. I know of at least 4 other pups who left their families today. Sending hugs. I am sure Scarlett greeted Rocket
  11. She does not seem to be in pain. If anything now that it is a bit cooler (in the low to mid 70's) she has more energy and occasionally does some doggy break dancing in the apartment. Miriam has never been the energetic type. She takes retirement very seriously, if she doesn't have to move, she won't.
