It is amazing to me how quickly time passes. I have a hard time believing that almost 3 weeks have gone by without a post. During that time we've had a couple of greyhound health issues.
Dru had a seizure. She's OK now, but we are not sure what caused it. The only way to find out is to do a $3,000 cat scan and unfortunately, after the vet bills (and my medical bills) accumulated the past 6 months, it is way out of financial range.
Then this week, Breeze split the webbing on her foot. It was finally stitched up yesterday by my normal vet, after I walked out of the emergency vet office just before the surgery the previous night. During the exam by the emergency vet, she pushed up on the split webbing and I watched as the tear spread from just the bottom of the webbing all the way to the top. When my normal vet was working on it, he said the webbing was too damaged to repair it and he would have to stitch the sides and leave the toes free-floating. (my not- so-technical terms not his) To know the first vet contributed to the damage fires me up.
Anyway, to greet you back after our hiatus - Breeze after surgery yesterday. Feeling the effects of the drugs. It was an epic drool. She would be so upset if she knew I posted this to the internet. ;)

I know you are wondering why in the world there is a non-greyhound photo on the blog. Did you check the banner to be sure you had clicked over to the Cult blog?
Just wanted to invite those of you in the area to visit me at the Fiesta de la Primavera at the Holy Trinity Monastery in St. David, Arizona (an hour south of Tucson) this weekend. It is a perfect get of town escape for the Mother's Day weekend. I will be set up (that's right, on location for the first time in a few years) and selling prints and note cards. Including the greyhound note cards (there's the greyhound tie-in :) ) The are is very picturesque. The photo below, which will be available for purchase, was taken just north of the Monastery. See you there!

I took this photo, not because the composition looked good (though I think it does), but because there is actual touching and sharing of the bed. I needed proof so I know I didn't imagine it.
