  1. Goodbye Bubby my darling

    I will add my name to the list. I am devastated that I missed this and having a good old cry. Bubbity I am so very sorry. He was such a special boy and I loved hearing all his stories. I am so glad he came to visit you and I hope you are well. I'd like to think that Patch has found him and introduced himself and they are off having a nice snooze in the sun somewhere.

    I havent been on here for ages... We lost our beloved Patch a couple of weeks ago. It was coming for a long time but was sudden at the same time. There are no words to describe how much we miss him. Flashsmum - we still get daily notifications on our phone for his medicine. Neither of us can delete it.

    Oh FM I am so sorry. Run free sweet Harry

    Huge hugs! I am so glad Harry is feeling better. I love it when the oldies surprise us. Patch has been struggling with his arthritis and has just had some weekly shots (on top of his meloxicam) and he is feeling so much better Hope Harry continues to feel fabulous and make you smile for a while yet
  5. Nsw To Ban Greyhound Racing From July 2017

    I have started but it is heavy going. I'm not convinced yet (and I really hope that it is wrong) that the legislation is going to ban the breed altogether, I think it was a poorly worded/phrased article.

    Baird is on ABC 702 now. The RSPCA is their big rehoming partner...
  7. Nsw To Ban Greyhound Racing From July 2017

    This is exactly my feeling. I believe it is already very hard to find them homes, will only get harder. What do you think this means for pet or show breeders? Will you guys have a hard time getting breeding dogs or will there be much impact on you guys if it goes nation-wide? Its going to be impossible to find enough homes, and then there are going to be dogs that, unfortunately, due to intense prey drive, are really unsuitable for rehoming as well - but may make it into inexperienced homes and damage the reputation of the breed as a whole. I am seriously torn on the issue - I am glad it is banned but the logistics are a nightmare and I don't doubt that they haven't been thought through properly. But I also have no faith that any regulations put in place would have been adequately funded and resourced in order to make any difference what so ever.

    Definitely happy with this news but trying to wrap my head around the logistics of it all. There are going to be a lot of dogs destroyed or shipped interstate. Hopefully the government has a good plan in place to support rescues and the community gets out there and adopts as many of these dogs as possible (*looks at how we can squeeze another one in*)

    And is Oscar's sister :) He is sure he is a grey

    Totally off topic! How are our guys 8 already (well almost!)?
  11. Italian Greyhounds

    Indigirl you have had a crazy week! A break is such a fear with these guys. Hopefully Paris behaves herself! I know when Oscar had his skin graft it got tricky to keep him as quiet as he was supposed to be. The puppies are, as always, gorgeous!
  12. Italian Greyhounds

    Oh gosh! I hadn't heard. How very sad. She seemed like such a lovely lady who obviously adored her iggles very much. Huge hugs to those who knew her.
  13. My Darling Rupert

    Oh kirty I have only just seen this I am so sorry. What a special boy Rupert was, you both deserved for him to spend a long life with your family. I am so sorry that you only had him for a short (but memorable) time.
  14. Italian Greyhounds

    kirty I don't know how you would get anything done with all those gorgeous puppies to play with!
  15. Both greys and iggies - its the no recall (I know some can do it, mine are useless). I hate that I can't take them to an off lead beach and let them romp around freely and trust them to come back Iggies - its the total goddamn drama queen shenanigans and neediness (oh and the total freak out melt downs if someone he doesn't know glances in his direction) Don't get me wrong, I love Oscar with everything that I have and can't even contemplate life without him - but lord he is high maintenance Having said that - his weird personality traits and need to be with me is what I love about him too. I love that he loves me so much
