The Dog Aging Project is once again enrolling dogs into their study! I enrolled Doodles into it years ago. They are really hoping to find people who know what year their dogs were born (we greyhound owners typically do!) and if you've had your dog since it was young, know its history, etc. I just enrolled Gildy because I have access to some of the people who took care of her when she was younger and, because I know her mama - Bowie.

Please consider enrolling your dog! It's free and the researchers are really nice. When I had to let them know that Doodles had passed, they wrote me a sweet note to let me know that her DNA will continue on with the project and help others down the road. She lived to the beautiful age of 14, I was so fortunate 2764.png<3.

You're welcome! I'm excited that retired racers will be represented!

Milo made the Aging Project!

Congratulations! You have completed the Health and Life Experience Survey. Milo is the 17,634th member of the Dog Aging Project Pack. We are very excited to have you and your canine companion on our team!

I "nominated" both Jeter and Milo, but only Milo got the nod.  At least so far -- I understand they are accepting dogs in batches.  But I wonder if so many greyhound cult members peeps responded that they felt they had enough greyhound representation.  :)  Milo is a lurcher.

I also agreed to consider putting in Milo for related substudies.

I entered Miriam's information back in September.  She is the 10,700th member of the Dog Aging Project Pack.  I can't remember if I chose to do any related substudies.  I didn't think they would accept her since she turned 13 at the end of September.  Miriam is only our 2nd ever teenage greyhound.

Andi was 15-thousand-something two weeks ago.  We also chose to do extra studies.

Interestingly, when I mentioned it to our vet, she said she also has 4 other clients who've been accepted - 3 goldens and a mixed breed.

Fancy (11 YO) is in the study, as well, number 12,800 something.  I also agreed to have her enrolled in whatever they want.  Curious to see how this all plays out.
