Hi all
Sorry for not answering posts etc or been on the forum, I have some problems. I no longer foster greyhounds or have any. It's nothing to do with hard times and ressession or anything like that.
I am very ill and won't be getting better.
I really love greyhounds and miss them lots especially Paths of Glory. I was really heartbroken I could no longer able to help Julie and the girls or Steve at RGOA. I hope they see this on here. I have problems speaking on the phone nowadays because of Problems with my speech.
I have bulbar palsy/ amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and had for sometime. I hope one day I go to north ockendon kennels and visit again. I really miss greyhounds and so frustrated I can no longer help take care and help you all with rehab etc.
Love Cheryl

Our hearts go out to you, Cheryl! You've been dealt a difficult hand, but I earnestly hope that you're getting the best possible care and support.

ALS presents challenges in communicating, but they're not insurmountable. It may be possible for one of your friends or caregivers to help you stay engaged with the greyhound community. This could be in the form of the caregiver accessing your online membership in this forum, so that they can pass along information in both directions. You still have much to say and things to learn, so I hope you'll be interested in staying in touch.

And though you can't care for dogs any longer, I hope that you'll be able to continue having dogs come to see you regularly and often. It could be the bright spot of your day.

Godspeed, Cheryl. We look forward to hearing from you whenever you can.

Cheyl ; take some comfort in knowing that without all of your help over the years some of the dogs that you have looked after may not have been so fortunate and I thank you for that. For now all that is important is that you get the best medical treatment for your condition.....Take care.

Hi Cheryl,
We have never met and have only ever "conversed" on the forum on a few occasions but, having read most of what you have posted in the past I do know how deeply you care about these wonderful, beautiful creatures and to have to give up that involvement must be heartbreaking.

As others have said, I hope you are getting the care and support that you need Cheryl and I do hope, whilst you are still able, that you will join in as many topics as you can.

best wishes,
Maureen

Sorry to hear your news Cheryl. Hope the following poem might bring a smile

You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger.
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger.

One dog is no trouble, and two are so funny.
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey.
The fifth one's delightful, the sixth one's a breeze,
You find you can live with a houseful of ease.

So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy but, oh, Lord the hair!
With dogs on the sofa and dogs on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, it's no bother, you've said.

They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's one more dog and just one more crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty,
The floor is all footprints, the furniture dusty.

The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a puppy, you can always find room,
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.

There's hardly a limit to the dogs you can add,
The thought of a cutback sure makes you sad.
Each one is so special, so useful, so funny.
The vet and food bills grows larger, you owe BIG money.

Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other "dog folks" who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died, and your shrubs are dead too,
But your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

There's dog food and vitamins, training and shots.
And entries and travel and motels which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite one comes and climbs in your lap.

His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the critters in spite of the bill.
Some just for showing and some just to breed.
And some just for loving, they all fill a need.

God, winter's a hassle, the dogs hate it too.
But they must have their walks though they're numb and your blue.
Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the dogs on the sofa who refuse to go out.

The dogs and the dog shows, the travel, the thrills,
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.

Your life-style has changed. Things won't be the same.
Yes, those dogs are addictive and so is the dog game.

Regards,
Sean.

Many thanks for the well wishes I'm very over welmed.
Sean, I love that poem and yes it did put a smile on my face. I even passed it on to my friend Karen. Her sister has Daisy pup now in Wales. She loved it too :)
I hope you got your dog back Holger. Worrying when they dissapear
:(
I see if I can help on emergencies only. Or if they can let me have a greyhound for as an assistant dog to help me.
