A few weekends ago the hounds and I attended the annual Greyfest at the Georgia International horse park. I volunteered to trim nails on the hounds attending the festival. It was a lot of fun. I was able to keep D&J close by while I was working.
The festival is dedicated to celebrating Greyhound. It is hosted by SEGA (southeastern greyhound adoption) and coordinated by the ever-organized Lisa Strickland. They put on a wonderful event with several contests celebrating all that greyhounds are.
They also have a contest called “Blur the Fur”. This contest allows the greyhounds to run in a horse arena. The hounds are encouraged to run by the sound of a squawker and visual stimulation of a lure. The hounds love it! The best part for the human was that your hound’s speed is clocked with a radar gun! Darla was clocked at 41 mph. That is fast!!
Unfortunately Jethro was still recovering from his toe surgery and was unable to run. I will post photos of him running later. We were given the okay to run last week!
Darla continues to be seizure free. We are going on one week without seizures, touch wood. We are continuing our raw diet and I am continually pleased with how my dogs are improving.
