% Assistance Harness for Greyhounds

%  Assistance Harness for Greyhounds - Click For EnlargementAs adopters of senior greyhounds exclusively (almost!), Jerry and I have often wished for a harness that would allow us to help our old kids get up from a lying position, or up a few steps, or to go outside without the physical invasion of trying to cram a towel beneath their frail and uncomfortable old bodies.

When Diana was seen at a specialty hospital in the SF Bay Area, the physical therapist put a "4 Paws Car Harness" on her which was very helpful- the soft padding of lambs wool beneath her chest allowed her to wear it all the time- those harnesses are available at Petco Stores should you have an emergency need.

Though helpful, it wasn't made for a greyhound's long body and we wished for something more- something along the same lines, but better!

Our wish was fulfilled by Carol Becker who created this custom fitted harness for our Alice, just when we needed it most. Alice was one of those flighty little girls who vehemently resisted any sort of treatment or help, so her last week with us would have been even more traumatic had it not been for this comfortable harness that allowed us to lift/steer/assist her by using the top strap and without seeming to invade her personal space. If only we'd had one for all our osteo-dogs....

We were so impressed that we suggested adding her harness to our website so senior-lovers everywhere would know where to find one when it was needed. Not only is Carol a wizard at sewing, but she also administers God's Greyts Greyhound Rescue, the beneficiary of all the income from the Etsy store.

To order, just email Carol and she'll describe the measurements she needs to create a custom harness for your greyhound. Or, NOW you can visit Carol's Etsy Store!

% Get Up & Go Supplements

%  Get Up & Go Supplements - Click For EnlargementClaudia Presto, of The Greyhound Gang, writes, " In 1995, I founded the Greyhound Gang - to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt out greyhounds no longer wanted by the racing industry. Rehabilitation is an ongoing concern, as racing greyhounds spend upwards of 23 hours a day in crates, and their joints and bones have been pounded with running from a young age.

In 1999, I was working for ANF, Inc. who provided supplements for humans. The company's owner, gave me Glucosamine to give to the greyhounds in my care, and the change in their ability to move was astounding! Bouncing around, doing 360's, jumping up on furniture with ease - the glucosamine gave their joints and cartilage what was needed to feel better and healthy.

"Get Up & Go" was born, when this supportive owner lent me the money to buy the first kilos of white powder, and the venture grew and supported itself from the start as individual owners marveled at the same results I saw.

Purchasing Get Up & Go supplements is a win-win-win situation, because it's a high quality product at the lowest cost and because it WORKS! All dogs, and greyhounds in particular, need supplements to help their joints stay healthy and pain free.

These particular products, produced for humans, have been a double help to the hundreds of greyhounds passing through the Greyhound Gang: it not only helps them return to and maintain good health, but earnings assist the Gang in finding them good homes, too."
