  1. Just two retired racers having a little chase: https://vm.tiktok.com/Xjj8mD/
  2. We adopted our grey just about 10 months ago, he has been fantastic. While walking he is very friendly and outgoing with other dogs, but his fast movements tend to freak other breeds and their owners. At a dog park he will sniff around, do his business then normally lay down next to us. It is the exact opposite of what we expected him to do. We just moved to the Port Orange area and would like to see if there are any other greyhound owners who might be up for meeting at a dog park or fenced in area to let the dogs possibly run around and have fun. Thanks
  3. Hi All, Quick question about running: Our Arrow, whom we've had for about six months, is doing great. She's about seven years old, raced in about 60 races and was then kept for breeding racers (three litters of pups). Arrow is pretty chill at home, but she LOVES to run at the dog park and doggy day care. It's just now starting to get a bit hot outside, and we took her to the dog park this weekend. She did a big round of several loops, dazzling everyone with her speed and agility. After about 15-20 minutes, she went for the shade and was panting quite hard. We brought her home, got her lots of cold water. The panting kept going for a good while and she seemed overheated, we cooled her down with some cold wash cloths and it eventually stopped. We noticed the next few days she would have weird breathing things happen occasionally, almost like a weird little cough or snort. It's allergy season here, so that could be it. But I'm wondering for a dog her age, if you all have any advice as to how much they should run and if they can overdo it in the summer. I'm thinking 1-2 good runs a week, but maybe even that is too much in the heat? So appreciate this forum!
  4. Hi All, Our first new grey Arrow (7 weeks) is doing wonderfully overall, but her one issue (as I've posted about previously) is statueing. It's not improved much yet, and then she got a limp when we let her do zoomies in the back yard. So she's been resting and on anti-inflamatories for the last 4 days or so. She has cabin fever for sure, and we are gradually getting her walks going again. But because of the statueing, I'm hesitant to go on big long walks and get stuck. Thus her walks end up being relatively short - 10-15 minutes (2-3 times a day). We also try and let her run in the yard or at a park once a week or so. Is she getting enough exercise? She is 6.5 years old and had three litters of pups; so she's a tad bit on the older side for a new adoptee but is still very outgoing, energetic and curious. Should I just take her on longer walks and roll the dice that we'll have to carry her home? Thoughts are much appreciated!
  5. Hello all, we live in New England with two litter mates,( Frannie and Chloe ) now just 3.5 years old. I'd love for them to have the opportunity to run for their physical and mental health. Right now their curiosity and prey drive are very strong so they must stay leashed. They do have a pretty large kennel 30' x 40' to run and play in but it's not the same as running they way they want to. Does anyone here know of a coursing lure group? We're not looking for anything all that formal or serious, just some good weekend fun.
  6. Hi everyone, Winnie and I just moved to Chicago from Rhode Island, and I'm now exploring the dog park situation in the area. We're actually just back from Prairie Wolf dog park in Lake Forest (http://www.lcfpd.org/preserves/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.view&object_id=27649&type=P) the most fantastic dog park I've seen so far -a 44-acre fenced area including ponds, woods, grassy meadows and fields for dogs to run, swim, and play off-leash. Winnie was in heaven. On the bright side, I'd never seen her enjoying herself that much. I was delighted to see that, even though she disappeared in the woods and fields for short periods of time, she'd always come back to me when I called her. On the not-so-bright side, she is now covered in cuts and abrasions all over her legs, including a badly lacerated pad (the top layer of skin is about to fall off, though it doesn't seem to bother her too much). Winnie always runs like crazy when I let her off the leash and always comes back with cuts and nicks, but obviously not this bad. My question is: (1) should I worry about that pad laceration or just let it heal itself? I washed it, applied some Neosporin and some Columbia vet powder, and dressed the wound. (2) Should I be at all concerned by those dog park injuries, or just assume they are normal in greyhounds? What can I do to speed the healing of those cuts and promote hair regrowth on those areas? As most greyhounds, Winnie has very thin hair on her legs, and her skin is ridiculously thin and delicate, but I'd obviously rather have a scarred, happy dog than a pretty, repressed one! Any thoughts? Thanks!
  7. We don't have a fenced yard (live in a townhouse) so on weekends we try to get Sweep to a fenced ball field as often as the weather permits, which until a few weeks ago was 2-4 times a month. However, it being the South in summer, we had not had a cool enough day for about five weeks until this morning. She did one full-out circuit and seemed fine, and I was willing to leave it at that since it had been a while, but DH got her stirred up again and she did another couple of minutes of zoomies. When she leaned down to get some water afterward, she yelped a few times in succession and then was limping (front leg) on the walk back to the car, even stumbling once. There is no sign of injury or swelling, so I am assuming a charley horse or pulled muscle, but is there anything specific I should be watching for? I massaged her legs and back and she let me inspect all her feet without protest. We've been home about 30 minutes and she seems much better, though still moving a little slower than normal. I was planning to take her to my parents' house for my dad's birthday today; is there something OTC I should/could give her for soreness beforehand? (She'll just be occupying her bed in their living room; no more exercise today.) Thanks! Paranoid newbie
