  4. Many of you may remember that Miriam's liver values (ALT in particular) were persistently increasing in 2016. We had a liver biopsy done and she was diagnosed with Copper Storage Disease. I have been tracking her numbers in my own spreadsheet since. The normal range for ALT that I have is 14 - 151. I am not sure where I got those numbers. I thought that maybe from my Greyhound Health Initiative "business card", but it is not listed on the one I currently have. Miriam had bloodwork done on Friday the the normal range listed there is 10 - 118. Can anyone tell me what the normal
  5. I am sorry about that. I swear I posted the link. Thanks for posting the link. Dr Vail talks about the life expectancy of Hemangiosarcoma being only a few months in many cases. We were very lucky more than 20 years ago when our greyhound, Icabod had a tumor rupture on his spleen. He made it almost 1 year post rupture.
  6. This was on Wisconsin Public Radio on 2/20/2020 and they are in the middle of their fund drive. Skip to the 5:46 minute mark to hear the interview.
  7. NBC Nightly News featured Scout. Scout's interview starts at the 19 minute mark:
  8. I know we quit counting Pogo's total bill when we hit around $7000. Even though he was part of the Rapamycin study at UW-Madison, his bills easily topped $10,000 because he developed an arrhythmia right before surgery and an UTI right after surgery to remove his leg. He spent a total of 10 days (maybe 11, I can't remember anymore) in the hospital post surgery. We also lived about 3 1/2 hours north of Madison and had to drive there for his carboplatin chemo treatments. We also had a greyhound that had hemangiosarcoma (like Scout, but on his spleen) and his bills also totaled more than $

  10. So you are going to make it this year? We will have to get together.
  11. We will be getting there the 29th and leaving on the 4th. We'll be staying at the Round Top campground. This will be our 1st time to GIG

    So sorry to hear about Lexie. She was such a patient and wonderful pup.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  16. 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.
  18. 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.
