running is bad for you

    FYI (just think it's cool) the Palm Beach Kennel club has their races online

     

    El Peachy Lee is our other dog Smile

      Oh no.  Hope the tumors are not cancerous.

       

      99.99% of bone tumors in greyhounds are a malignant, nasty, aggressive form of cancer - osteosarcoma.     Bone biopsies are almost never recommended because - well, it's never anything else.

        Yes, she is a purebred greyhound.  You can see her racing stats if you register at greyhound-data.com

        Looks like she was fast in her youth!

            Yeah, it pretty much blows.

             

            Here's a shot of Jewell and my Berkeley (lost to osteo in 2012), in their younger days:

             

             

              Awww, no, Phil. Uggh.  I'm sorry.

               

              Hey runmom, glad to see you dropping in at B&B!

                    I'm so sorry to hear about your pup.

                      Phil- I'm so sorry for your pup's diagnosis.  I do know somebody from a lab board I'm on who's dog Lucy has been doing very well for two years since her osteosarcoma diagnosis, though!  They decided no surgery and only holistic treatment, but it didn't progress like the vet originally expected.  So there is always hope.

                        We had Jewell put to sleep this morning.  She was really struggling and we knew it was time.  I am heartbroken.  Sad
