Hello From Derbyshire Uk

I've finally taken the plunge and joined GT after several weeks of browsing the forums.

 

I adopted a lovely gentle black ex-racing greyhound called Grace about 15 weeks ago from the Greyhound Trust at Monmore Green near Wolverhampton, She is recovering from the third operation on one of her front paws to remove some deeply embedded grit from her racing days which was causing abscesses. Hopefully for her and my bank balance she is now OK.

 

I will post a picture of her when I can defeat my browser settings.

Guinness (Antigua Rum) b. 3 September 2017 - Gotcha Day 18 March 2022 - A gentleman most of the time

Welcome to you and Grace from the southeastern USA. Poor Grace with her foot abcesses -- that sounds painful. Is she leaving her wounds or bandages alone?

Addicted Send Help I see that one of your greyhounds was called Barefoot Doctor which seems a bit of a coincidence as Grace's (racing name Ardera Coleen) father was Barefoot James.

After a bit of research I found out that Barefoot James's father was Droopys Kewell whose father was Larkhill Jo and mother was Tinas Beauty. Tinas Beauty and Rio Ricardo were the parents of Barefoot Doctor.

Thank you all for your best wishes for Grace. I've posted a more detailed account in the Health and medical forum titled Grace's Poor Paw.
