Yesterday was Greyhound Friend's International Day. It was an all day event so we had to leave the house early. They had speakers from all over the world to discuss greyhound issues. Some of the speakers were from Argentina, Spain, Ireland and of course the United States. Dr. Couto came! He is the world's leading expert on greyhound physiology. I got to meet him. He even petted me! What a thrill. Mom talked to him about the new vaccine coming out for osteosarcoma. Right now the vaccine is being used in dogs that already have the disease. It isn't a preventative yet. Dr. Couto said they think they have found the gene that causes it, so a cure might be coming soon. I hope so. Many of my friends were there- Johnny B, Cella, Thor, Teddy, Ripley and my half brother, Padfoot. Padfoot had a new brother! He is a brindle Galgo (Spanish Greyhound). It was a nice day. It was cloudy but that was good as it kept it cooler. We were under a tent anyway. I didn't want to leave when it was over.
