A New Year

New Year is a beautiful male greyhound who will turn 14 on December 4. He came to us shortly before his birthday last year, when his human mom and dad became elderly and unable to care for him and his sisters. New Year was quite the racer in his day, and won a lot of money for his owner. However, attempts to make little New Years failed (thankfully) and Newly was retired to a life of leisure. Newly is riddled with arthritis in his knees and hips - pain meds are dulling the pain for now, but even good food, pain meds, and nutriceuticals aren't keeping up anymore. Though he has brief joyful romps in the field, he pays for it later with soreness and pain. When his pain outweighs his joy, we will help him to the Bridge.

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the new pics you posted! Now if you could make the screen soft and cuddly like they are, I'd love to pet each of them. :)
