I'm so glad it wasn't the dreaded "O"! Just curious - have you inspected his pads closely? I know of several folks who thought something was massively wrong, only to overlook that a corn had formed in their grey's pad. For some reason, corns are incredibly common in greyhounds and are easily overlooked!
Yeah we check them for corns on the regular. Both our greys get them sometimes. He has a really small one on that foot, but it doesn’t bother him at all when we press and push on it. Usually if they’re bothering him he’ll let us know when we mess with it, so if he doesn’t react then I leave them alone. But might be worth soaking it for a week or so and see how it goes. I just worry a little bit that I’ll turn something that’s not a problem into a problem, ya know?

I get it - could always have the x-rays sent off for a second opinion depending on how clear-cut they are. Or if it may be stemming from nerve pain rather than inflammation, maybe talk to your vet about trying Gabapentin in combination with the carprofen. Gabapentin really seems to help with Ursala's arthritis and lumbar pain.

Sir Timber decided he needed to help with my brother’s roof. 🙃

he wasn’t quite sure what to do once I got him up there. I helped him up the ladder. He started trying to climb it himself.

Ollie looks...uncertain.

Doggo rebuttal: Here's Teddy, the medical case doggo we were fostering for the city shelter. He got adopted by LadySquare's mom so I get to see him all the time! He started out in REALLY bad shape (darn near got eaten by a big animal, major infection, etc) but now he's doing super well, recovering, and pretty much hit the jackpot in terms of a forever home.

Absolutely!

I am hoping when we sell our house (just listed) and move to an area with land (looking at 5+ acres, hopefully), that I can foster all the doggos in need.... bravo! So many dogs in need out there!

In your location. Are you Bill gates?
No joke .... around here I would need to be! :cautious:

Actually looking to move East of the mountains. Central WA area. It's moderately cheaper there and honestly, doesn't take much longer to get to Seattle than from my current location (with traffic and/or using public transport), and it's a prettier drive. I just have to watch for pass closures. I primarily WFH and have to go in for occasional meetings or job site visits. I have to live within the state and a "reasonable" distance to my assigned location. It also rains less there!

Oh that would be amazing and definitely prettier. If you just have to go in for meetings its totally worth the move. Those land prices are also rising pretty fast.

Additionally, it opens up the option to create your own content for netflix like wild wild country.

East of the Cascades isn't bad. Definitely hotter than Seattle central but the blue skies are worth it. Good luck with the pass commute tho, we go over to the west side a couple times a year and It's hit and miss.

I'll take the occasional headache of traveling the pass over the constant headache of traffic in this area.... ☠️

Especially for smiles like these from a recent trip to Yakima.

Is that a NexGard chewable?? That's so weird, Auggie n Sofie inhale those like treats. Come on Piper!
Bravecto chewable... and Ollie and Timber both eat them like Treats. Piper is picky and extremely stubborn!
