    Full Moon Roo

    If any of you subscribe to CG magazine you've seen our new ad created by Suzi of Skinny Hound Designs. What you may not know is that the cover artwork (Full Moon Roo) is a textile created by Sandra Nelson Moye. 
    Here's what Sandra says about her art. 
    "As an Artist, it is often the everyday life that kickstarts one's creativity. My passion for the beauty and quirkiness of my greyhounds Stella, Jethro, Alec and Elroy have inspired me to combine my love of textiles, color and needlework into colorful, whimsical and stylized needle felted pillows. Just as one can not resist to reach out and touch the velvet ears of their greyhound, I want people to reach out and feel the tactile beauty of each pillow."
    Full Moon Roo was a donation to SEGA in Atlanta.
    Thanks again Sandra for donating the use of your beautiful art!

    The Greyhound Health Initiative

    We are proud to say that the 2014 Retired from Racing, not from Life Art Book will be raising funds for the The Greyhound Health Initiative Every penny is sent directly from the publisher to the Initiative.

    The Greyhound Health Initiative was started by Dr. Couto after his departure from Ohio State University.  

    We were hoping that he wouldn't be away for long!

    from GHI...

    "The Greyhound Health Initiative provides education to veterinarians, veterinary health care providers, greyhound owners and the general public about the unique medical and health issues of sighthounds by giving lectures, presentations and in service workshops. We offer medical consultations to veterinarians and owners in person and online. The Greyhound Health Initiative is working with sighthound rescue groups by providing direct veterinary care and funds. We will continue with cancer research and other medical issues afflicting greyhounds. Our work will improve sighthound health which will benefit the whole sighthound community."

    Judge a Book by its Cover!

    Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover!  

    The cover for last year's Retired from Racing, not from Life Art Book is truly inspiring.

    The art is by the wonderfully talented, Suzie Collins of Skinny Hound Designs. Please read about "Hope", her muse for the sketch.

    "The 2013 cover is an illustration created to honor and remember a very special little greyhound that was born the runt of her litter. She was so tiny that the Veterinarian didn't think she'd make it and recommended that she be euthanized. But her human momma knew better; she had hope, and so Hope was named. With a lot of extra special care and love, Hope was able to grow up and live a mostly normal life. Her body may have been tiny and fragile (barely bigger than a Whippet and maybe a little hunched), but her personality was bigger than the largest of her siblings and she ruled the roost! She may have had some struggles during her short time on earth, but she taught us what it meant to not give up, to keep fighting no matter the odds because there is always hope! Those of us lucky enough to have been touched by this amazing little girl carry her memory with us and know “There is always Hope...!”."

    -Suzie Collins, Artist
