Greyhounds Do Indeed ROCK!!

Greyhounds Rock, our greyhound fundraiser gathering, starts this evening, and I still have a ton of things to accomplish.  All of our work, and stress, and preparation has these goals ... to raise money to help fund canine cancer research, spread the word about the most successful treatment options, and to support dog owners who have been affected by this horrible disease.

This is my Emma. She will be 14 years old in January. Her health is good, if you don't count mild laryngeal paralysis and two calcified disks in her back. Her mother, Jessie, died of Osteosarcoma at age 13.

My dear Daniel, the GQ dog sweater model, is 9 1/2. 

TJ is my friend Kim's dog. He was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in July, at the tender age of 8. He has recovered beautifully from amputation surgery, has received 4 of a scheduled 6 chemotherapy treatments, and had a clear chest x-ray two weeks ago. As of now, TJ is a happy, healthy boy. 

We have a page on our Greyhounds Rock web site dedicated to the faces of dogs who have been lost to cancer.  These dear dogs, with their sweet faces, help keep us going when the fatigue and stress of the last few weeks of final preparations began to build.  CLICK HERE to go to the Memorial Page.  If you would like to submit a photo, contact us at

I will be signing off now until early next week.  If you are coming to our gathering, please hunt me down and say Hello.  If you are not coming, and would still like to support the cause, donations are gratefully accepted ... we have PayPal, to make it quick and easy.

Here is a little taste of Halloween.

I'll be back next week.  Thanks for all of your support, Everyone. 


  1. Good luck Connie on the fundraiser! Greyhounds do Rock!

  2. Best of luck for the fundraising event. Sweet dogs you have.

  3. Love the barn spider photo. Their design just makes them so darned cute.

    (Hugs to each and every one of your pups. They do indeed rock!)

  4. I know you are so busy but I want to wish you the best on your fundraiser. Such a worthy cause. These are beautiful animals!

  5. Thank you, and everyone involved, for all the wonderful things you do to help prevent canine cancer! Best wishes for a hugely successful event!

    Kat :)

  6. Sweet greyhounds! We miss Charm so much that it is still difficult to look at any greyhound without getting emotional. Good luck with the function.


  7. Bless you all for giving these beautiful dogs loving, caring homes. You are all angels.
