The list of pets being memorialized can be read on Northcoast Greyhounds’ Memorial Tributes page: http://tinyurl.com/m9y8b67 A copy of this printed email will accompany our check to Dr. Couto - we always ask that he or his staff read these names to themselves, in the knowledge that the lives of each greyhound listed here and the caring of their extended families, support his efforts and research into extending greyhound lives in the future. Take wing, all you new Greyt Angels and Furry Friends. Godspeed. You'll be as well-missed as you were well-loved, Cara Brockhoff Northcoast Greyhound Support FUN-Draising for Greyt Causes
As some of you may be aware, we are going through a very personal osteosarcoma episode right now: one of our greyhounds was diagnosed with it last Wednesday. I'm going to be making a series of posts documenting how everything has unfolded to date and then I'll keep making updates as things continue to evolve. My hope is that it gives those of you who haven't been through this yet a better perspective on how devastating osteo can be. I also hope that it will help set some expectations for someone going through this in the future who just got the diagnosis and has no idea what they're in for. I promise I will only post relevant updates so the blog doesn't become and endless string of "Day 3: she pooped today" entries. Thank you for your continued support of GHI and well-wishes for my family and I. -Brian Collins, Executive Director * * Note - Brian Collins is the husband of Suzie Collins aka Skinny Hound Designs.
