Bucket lists are for the living: a to-do list of experiences one wants to enjoy in his or her lifetime. Bucket lists aren’t just for people––they’re becoming more popular for dogs, too. In this episode, discover how you can start creating––and implementing––a bucket list for your greyhound. Plus, we give you twenty ideas to help get you started.
Check out Bring Fido, an international database of hotels, restaurants, and other venues where dogs are welcome.
Truly, the most difficult topic for us to cover and for you to hear: knowing when it’s time to let your greyhound go. In recognition of Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day (August 28), this episode explores the process of making an informed decision, what to expect during euthanasia, what happens after, and more.
For at-home euthanasia of your dog, ask your veterinarian for a referral. If s/he can not provide one, visit the In Home Pet Euthanasia Directory (USA, Canada, and UK).
This is a very special, quick episode. In just 5 seconds, you can help greyhounds placed in loving homes by Greyhound Friends of New Jersey (GFNJ) earn a $20,000 grant from Healthy Paws Pet Insurance. We’re competing against ONLY 5 other dog (and a cat) adoption groups for the grant; it’s based on a voting system. Please vote for Apple Jack, a greyhound who sustained a leg break in her final race. Apple Jack’s leg was repaired by the track veterinarians; she also needed innovative therapy, provided by GFNJ, once she arrived in NJ.
August 22 is the Feast Day of Saint Guinefort, the only greyhound, and dog, for that matter, to have been bestowed with the holy title. In this episode, discover who Saint Guinefort was and what led to his sainthood.
Chewing is a natural dog behavior. But when it becomes destructive, it does more than ruin your things––it’s also a danger to your greyhound. In this episode, find out more about this behavior, why some greyhounds do it, and how to redirect it.
Check out Kong, one of the most popular chew toys for greyhounds. Add in some peanut butter and freeze the Kong to create an irresistible treat for your hound. Typically, the extra large size works best for greyhounds. If your greyhound is very small (50 pounds or under), the large size may be better.
The Flexi (NOT the hard) Nylabone is an ideal chew toy for greyhounds. Be sure to get one that’s large in size as smaller Flexi Nylabones are a choking hazard for greyhounds.
Your greyhound may also love the stuffingless stuffies from Outward Hound. Many greyhounds love the Invincible Snake.
Basket muzzles are made specifically for greyhounds and similarly built dogs. Here’s where Jacqueline buys hers; in the very least, check out basket muzzles here so you know what they look like. Most greyhound adoption organizations will provide you with a basket muzzle when you adopt, but it’s always good to have an extra one handy.
