Went to a wonderful event today. A local Pet Food Store had a get together called "Meet the Breed and Fall in Love". Not just greyhounds, but all kinds of dogs were there. Got to see my buddy Dave-O. Dave-O holds the record as a foster at my house. He was here for 9 months! I am so glad I got to see him and get some good kisses.
There was a fellow greyhound owner there with her newly adopted girl. They adopted this senior brood momma last October. (For the life of me, the name escapes me) They had lost both of their greys within 3 months of each other to osteo. Now why does it seem that this demon cancer follows some families? She told us today that in December this lovely senior lady had a nipple that was bleeding. Turns out it was breast cancer. They removed the tumor and said they got good margins, things were looking up. A couple of weeks later she started the dreaded limp. Yep, you guessed it, she has osteo. I had to walk away, I almost started crying...why? Will they ever find a cure for this demon cancer?


  1. I wish I knew! A friend of ours down in Saint Louis is helping her beloved eleven year old girl recover from amputation after an osteo diagnosis. It's such a cruel disease!

  2. I wish there was a cure for every disease that has taken away so many of our 4 legged friends (both dogs and cats) because it is so painful for all concerned! I am so sorry that senior lady has osteoporosis and I hope she will be able to cope with it...poor thing!

  3. I'm sorry!

    Hope to see you at our Valentine's Weekend Blog Party!
