  1. Over the years many of my greyhounds reached 12 or beyond. Richy passed at 12 years 6 months, Tucker passed at 12 years 11 months, Bug passed at 13 years 6 months, and for those of you who were on greytalk in 2005 & 2006 you may remember Susie who we found on greytalk and adopted 3 weeks before she turned 14. She passed at 15 years 1 month. Still with us is Dee who turned 12 October 9th.
  2. "Music City Greyhounds" in Nashville, Tn. and "Midsouth Greyhound Adoption Option" in West Memphis, Ar. send dogs to the prison program.
  3. My grandson is graduating high school in Chicago the Sunday before Mountainhounds. I will be there next year.
  4. Unfortunately I have to miss this year but I will return next year.
  5. I'm so sorry for your loss. Be comforted by knowing that she's pain free and you gave her a good life for 10 years.
  6. Dancing Bug's sister was named Ladybug. She died 10 years ago at age 3, 2 months before we adopted Dancing Bug.
  7. Yesterday we had to say goodbye to Bug. We adopted her 10 years ago when she was recovering from leg surgery. She was our alpha. She always kept all the others in line. They all knew "don't mess with Bug". It's not going to be the same here without her. She's going to be missed.
  8. Most of the people participating in the greytalk card exchange take pictures of their dogs and have cards made at one of the many card services : Sams, Costco, Walgreens, Sutterfly. If you want to participate sign-up should start this week in "off topic"
  9. You've heard lots of people say they adopt old dogs. I think I may have the record. I adopted Susie 3 weeks before her 14th birthday. She blessed my home for 14 months and lived past 15. I currently have a 13 1/2 year old. 11 or 12 is more common but past that is certainly possible. As far as the yellow teeth, greyhounds are known for bad teeth. Bring him to the vet for a dental cleaning. I do that with my dogs every year with their annual checkup.
  10. 8 years 6 months, 11 years 5 months, and 12 years 6 months. I also lost one to cancer of the bone marrow at 3 years 1 month.
  11. I'm so sorry for your loss. Their time with us is never long enough.
  12. You'll love Mountainhounds. I went to my first one in 2008. I go across the state for it when I can (not every year). I'm in a suburb of Memphis.
  13. I'm so sorry for your loss. She was much too young.
