Thank you so much for all your lovely comments, I spoke with the vet this morning and he says Jack is progressing every day, he is now trying to put his right foot on the floor on his own which is brilliant in just a week, I know he's got a long way to go but I'm so happy I could burst lol xxxxxxxx

Just thought some of you might like a Jack update. We went to see him last night, and he looked so much brighter than Sunday. His diarrhoea is finally under control and he started to eat yesterday too. We took him some roast beef (my husband had to have cheese on his sandwiches instead) and he absolutely loved it, then he ate some tuna and rice, we are now hoping that he starts to pick up and gain some strength, helping him with his physio. The nurses carried him outside in his harness today and he did a big wee on his own which is fantastic progress. His left side is quite strong but it's the right side especially the front which is still weak, but he is doing great and getting a little stronger every day, the nurses are all in love with him but they say he is a bit lazy!!!!!, (whoever heard of a lazy greyhound). He was so contented after seeing us and eating his roast beef, he promptly fell asleep lol.
It's slow progress but he's doing great, we have told him to get his act together and get well because we miss him and need him at home xxxxxx

I had been thinking about your boy so was pleased to read your update that there has been some progress for Jack. I’m guessing these things take time so I’m keeping everything crossed for him. I hope the vets can get his tummy sorted out too then he might feel like eating something and that combined with your visits would be a big help for his recovery. Come on Jack, we are all rooting for you xxxx

Your visit will be the best medicine for Jack I am sure. As soon as we got our boy home after his amputation although it was a lot of commitment from us (I slept down stairs with him for 2 weeks) he seemed to know we where right there at his side and would do whatever it took to get him back on his feet and started to improve daily. We had another 3 1/2 great years with him when the vet was skeptical at 12 months. I really hope you are as lucky as we where, it sounds as though he is in the best care and fingers (and toes) crossed his recovery has started. Love to you and Jack x

Hi Shani, It's great to hear Jack has made progress, no matter how small. Hopefully knowing how well he is being looked after will help you when you have to leave him. Sure your visits are helping him and not surprised the nurse has fallen for him, he is a very handsome young man! Lots of love Kate Xxx

We have had an update on Jack today, the vet says there has been some progress, only small but it has given us a bit of hope, he has got some feeling in his left legs but the right are still very weak because that's where the stroke affected the most, he is still not eating and still has chronic diarrhoea which they are trying hard to control, they have had him outside today in the shade which seems to perk him up they are working hard on his physio every 3 hours, they are so good with him I think the nurse at the weekend was a bit smitten with him!!!. We are going to visit him tomorrow afternoon and they are going to take him outside and show us what they are doing physio wise with him, I hope our visit cheers him up as he is understandably quite down, we hope this marks the beginning of his recovery because we need our boy well and at home with us and his brother where he belongs, thank you all so much for your kind words, it really means a lot to us. Xxxx

Well, 2 years ago today our very handsome boy Jack bounced through our door and into our lives, and what a character he is, very enthusiastic, very happy and quite mischievous. He is certainly a 'glass half full' kinda guy with a helicopter tail that never goes to sleep. He has brought so much joy into our lives and he and his brother Dexter love each other so much, they hate to be apart from one another. Jack never fails to make us laugh every day, he has got some very comical traits, such a friendly and happy boy and we love, love, love him to bits, so, Happy Gotcha Day Jack!!!!!!, hugs and kisses from Mum, Pops & Dexter Dog xxxxx

Just thought I would give an update on our lovely boy Jack. As I said in an earlier post we discovered that Jack was in the early stages of Renal failure, so we started him on the Renal special diet, that was over 3 month ago. Well, we got Jack's latest blood results back on Wednesday and his level has now dropped to that of a normal dog of his age just by feeding him the Renal food, we are amazed and so happy. I'm just telling you this incase somebody else has got a dog who is going through the same thing, we caught Jack's disease in the very early stages by accident really, so I I don't know if this made a difference but it is worth a try feeding them the special diet. We are overjoyed that we will now get to see our precious boy live a full and happy life. Happy days xxxx

Hi Kate, Happy New Year to you and all at Daybreaks, well Jack is doing absolutely fine thank you. He has been on the Purina Renal biscuits and wet food for just over a month now, and he is even more bouncy & crazy than normal, it says on the label that it gives them a new lease of life, well he's certainly a very happy lively chap I can tell you!!!, but we wouldn't want him any other way. Thank you so much for asking about him, it means a lot to us. Hopefully we will be bringing the boys in for a pamper session probably at the beginning of March (Jack doesn't like being bathed so that will please him), so hope to see you and all the lovely hounds then xxxx

Jack enjoyed his walk this morning, bit strong at first on the lead but so many new smells so its to be expected, settled down and went for a coffee in the cafe where another grey came in and he was very friendly. Likes his new chum Murphy (another Grey), the humans all loved him. Off for another walk in 10 mins then he will sleep all evening.

Just a quick update on James (who is now called Jack). Oh my, he is absolutely wonderful, such a good boy who took about 20 mins to settle into his new home. He and his new brother Dexter (greyhound) get along fine, few grumbles (from Dexter) but nothing Jack cares about, he just ignore s him so Dexter just walks away which is funny. He had a fantastic first night, no problems, he loves his beds, good and walks and is going for a nice long walk then a coffee with 3 more Greys this morning. Happy days xx
