Spooky Shirt

Yes this is a cheap ploy for you all to buy a T-shirt I designed:-) Every year Southeastern Greyhound Club hosts a "Greyfest" and this year it falls on October 31 so I got to design a logo with a Halloween theme. Greyfest is a day of fun for greyhounds and their owners-games, contests, shopping and more!

I'm very happy with how it came out:-) The design can be purchased on anything Cafepress offers- shirts, cards, bags etc and of course the proceeds benefits greyhounds! I need to have mine printed up with just the words Spooky on it for my late greyhound...

I thought this pic was funny, good ol Limo. I've stayed true to Lester's retirement he's just a pasture/barn ornament now. He's getting his fuzzy fall coat in so he's been an itchy boy. He LOVES to be groomed and will stand all day for a curry comb. I'm glad he enjoys it and isn't a typical thin skinned TB that doesn't like it.

Is it wrong of me to be sorta glad when Less is moving funny? I still think he's comfortable enough, but there is just something def' off about him. It's just much easier to stay off of him when I see that things aren't right. He still runs and plays and of course looks pretty fine, but so does my friend's dog that has a spinal injury- you can't tell anything is wrong with her until you see her walk.

I totally get what you mean about being happy to see him a bit off. Its not that you're happy there's something wrong. Its more that it help reinforce your decision to retire him and keeps you from getting false hope.

He is looking really good and its nice to hear you're spending time with him. I was kinda thinking you'd left us so its nice to see a post :)

Wow! You've been MIA for a long time! It's great to see you posting again. Less is adorable and looks happy. And look at that happy Limo!
My mare is also a pasture ornament, too. She seems to like it just fine. lol!

I'm always sad to hear about owners struggling for years with difficulties with their horse. Sometimes it's helpful to get a different perspective on working with horses. One of the best "perspectives" is possessed by Mark Rashid. He is a horse trainer and clinician who travels around the country and gives clinics. He also hosts several week-long training sessions at his ranch in Colorado.
There's a blogger who's attended several of these events with Mark and has excellent photos and notes from her experiences with him. You may find some fresh inspiration for renewing your relationship with your horse.

I also like Deb Bennett's web site, Her book, "The Birdy Book" I found very helpful in my journey towards better understanding.

Awesome shirt! I like the design :)

Just stopping by to say hello and to tell you about an organic coffee company that helps support The Mobile Greyhound Adoption Center. Sounds like you already do a lot for Greyhounds, but if you're a coffee drinker (or know some) and want to help some Greyhounds find loving owners while you're sipping on your daily cup -- you should check out our page and enjoy a nice mug of "dog friendly" coffee! -- Plus, Green Tree donates $1 per pound of "dog friendly" coffee sold to that specific adoption center.

Take care and feel free to get in touch with me at any time via e-mail ( or toll free at (877) 338-0040 :)
