    So sorry to hear about Lexie. She was such a patient and wonderful pup.
  2. I have been trying to watch the PBS Special Ken Burns: Country Music but we don't have cable and we are surrounded by concrete in our apartment (we have in floor heating) so I can see bits of the documentary. The first episode is posted on their website. At the 23:29 point in the film there are 2 or possibly 3 greyhounds: one standing, one laying and another one that could be a small greyhound or a whippet. https://wpt4.org/wpt-video/country-music/ken-burns-country-music-episode-1-the-rub/ It's crazy how I can get excited about seeing greyhounds in film.
  3. So sorry. Sending gentle hugs to all of Fibi's family

He amazingly made it just short of 1 year post diagnosis and tumor rupture.
  5. 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.
  7. 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.

  9. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
