Well, this isn't exactly the post that I had in mind for today.
The last few days have been filled with speculation regarding Dr Couto's ongoing involvement with the Ohio State Greyhound Health and Wellness Program.
On top of that, new memberships are not being taken for the Program.
Where does this leave us?
I'm not entirely sure.
Three years ago when I started True North Greyhounds, Colby's illness led me to Dr Couto. It was an easy decision to raise money for such a worthy cause. Dr Couto and his team were providing research, treatment, and support for Greyhounds with cancer. Currently, we have chosen to suspend the funds that are going there, until we have concrete information as to what is happening.
The show must go on however. We are still accepting art work and photos from pro and amateur artists for the 2013 book (firstname.lastname@example.org). If Dr Couto does not continue his work elsewhere and if OSU decides to disband the Health and Wellness Program, there are still numerous Greyhound groups that need our help.
I thank you for your continued support of True North Greyhounds and our Retired from Racing, not from Life Art Book.
