It was a pleasure and delight to work with you all and see the great improvement in Casey. My own vet always says if a vet can't diagnose the problem then have your dog checked by a chiropractor or osteopath - in my experience that usually finds the problem and my vet also does chiropractic manipulation so I trust him to follow his advice. Our dogs are athletes so can carry an old injury or just the accumulation of a hard career as a race dog so the more we can ease the effects of this the better our dogs will feel and hopefully will avoid many of the problems of old age such as arthritis. Wendy is a McTimoney chiropractor in Bromsgrove and has treated many Greyhounds as well as other breeds :) My vet also recommends raw food as the natural food of dogs, I started feeding raw as he treated one of my dogs for an aggressive malignant tumour and that was a huge part of his successful treatment :) . As has been said - our dogs aren't used to being disturbed when sleeping so we always recommend you call your dog to you rather than risk startling them :) Brilliant to see the very happy Casey at training class, thanks again to Ruth, Jo from Head Office who agreed to let us work with Casey and of course Jembob and Julie :) x

Fantastic report from Jembob as it clearly highlights the highs and lows we can experience when these beauties come into our lives. The best advice we were given when adopting our first furbaby was provided by Kate..."have time & patience as it's a learning curve for you all"... and that's stayed with us. Casey, you and your lovely family are very lucky to have found each other and we wish you oodles of happiness together. Big hugs xxxx

Sounds like the perfect people have adopted Casey, they all have little hangups and our grey Dexter hates other dogs but after 4 years we figure he's not gonna change now, but he's much better than he used to be, and he used to growl if you went near his bed, now I can lie with him and do anything to him and he just loves the attention. It is so rewarding watching them grow in confidence in your care and become happy healthy hounds. Casey is a very lucky boy to have such fantastic owners. Keep up the good work xxxx

It's been a pleasure watching Casey develop in recent weeks. We still have plenty of work to do with him but he has come on so well. We have to send massive thanks to Kate, Ruth, Julie S and Christian at Fivelands.
Many of you may know that Casey came to Daybreaks after 10 months at HMP Littlehey - we have his notes from the prison and it was clear that they had taken great care of him. However, we was not a well dog and was suffering from a very unpleasant infection among other things. He was also very thin and a bit miserable. We had spent some time with him in his kennel and something in his eyes made us believe that he was a very nice hound but really quite unhappy.
We orginally offered to take him home for 3 days over Easter and it was only then that we realised that he had a couple of quite aggressive habits which worried us and seemed to get worse. With the help of those mentioned above, we exhausted all possible casuses of his behaviour with a view to improving his quality of life. Whatever we did has resulted in a much, much happier hound, but we believe that two things in particular have made a huge difference to him:
At the suggestion of Julie S we have introduced raw food into his diet. From his prison records we could see that Casey had not eaten well for 12 months. Since starting with raw, his appetite has gone through the roof and he is filling out again into an impressive specimen. It's such a relief to see him getting stuck into everything we give him.
The second suggestion from Julie was to take Casey to see a chiropractor to make sure he was free of pain. We took him to see a very nice lady called Wendy Lymer who treated him on two visits. We observed a massive improvement in Casey on both occasions and suspect that he had been in discomfort for a long time. He appeared to have had some issues with his jaw and neck. The change in Casey after such a short period of time as a result of Wendy's treatment has been nothing short of remarkable. I would absolutely recommend Wendy check out any hound as even the most minute of adjustments can make a big difference to general well being.
So now we have adopted a happy, healthy hound. Despite our best efforts he would still like to maul other breeds and we still can't go anywhere near him while he's on his bed. Apart from that he's our perfect hound!

Casey's latest blood test results show that his muscles enzymes are back to normal. For a greyhound, the normal range for creatine kinase reading is 20-225 - back in March Casey had a count of over 7,000!
We still have some way to go with Casey but he really is a great hound. He's getting a lot of help at the moment and seems to be heading in the right direction. Thanks to Ruth and Julie S for everything you are doing to help out this lovely lad.

Hi Jembob Pleased to hear Casey is back with you and I guess I would be in a foul mood too if I wasn't taken with you to Italy !! Maybe it shows though what a difference you are making with him when he's in a home environment We too had a grey with issues when first took her home ( not a Daybreaks hound I may add ) so we do understand what it's like trying to help them We were so glad we kept her as she turned into the most wonderful girl we could have wished for We sadly lost her last year Keep up your good work x x x

Yes, Casey is back with us. We collected him on Saturday and he was in a foul mood with us for the rest of the day! That'll teach us to swan off to Italy without him.
We are still working on a couple of issues with Casey and hoping that we can help him through them.

We have Casey's latest blood test results and they all look promising. The levels that were excessively high are returning to normal and everything else is stable. All good news.
He is, of course, being spoiled rotten. Last week he took delivery of a new t-shirt and cool coat and looks very smart in both.
We are also having fun with training - he's doing very well, responds to a few important commands and is learning to deal with other breeds while out walking. He's come a very long way in only 6 weeks.

Casey took us to the Evesham walk on Sunday. It was a most enjoyable morning out and I would encourage other hounds to take their families along to these regular events. Casey clearly benefitted from spending time with other hounds again, although he didn’t get to sample any of the lovely lemon cake that was available at the end. ?
As with many hounds that are just learning about the outside world, Casey enjoys new experiences and is very curious about most things. It was interesting to see how he reacted to other breeds of dog while in a pack of hounds – much calmer than normal so I suspect that we are the ones who need more training, not him!
Back home, Sir spent much of the afternoon sleeping or rolling around on the back lawn. Special treat was some left over beef cheek from our dinner. Lucky hound!

We took Casey to the Saturday morning training class. He was a bit overwhelmed by it all but very well behaved indeed and we came away with some really good ideas for training Casey. The class itself is good fun and contains so much good information about greyhound behaviour even though our hounds don’t seem to make the best students. I’ve already made good progress with Casey using some of Julie’s advice and we are going to continue attending the courses. I would really recommend the class to any greyhound owner who can get to Maypole on a Saturday morning.

Paddy says he is our official yogurt pot cleaner, he's good at his job he makes sure there's nothing left. Tips for Casey, don't waste time on the lid just wait for the pot to be handed over. Better still be ready to get your tongue in the pot first then they won't want it and you will get the lot. Sausages are made for houndies, just do the intense stare until they are yours. So pleased your having a great time training your humans xx

Well, Casey has been here for three days and it is quite clear that he is not prepared to return to kennels. He really is a smashing little chap and has settled in so well. He makes us laugh and we have even now got used to his late night werewolfing so we have decided to foster him and if he can adapt to be spolied rotten all of the time, it might turn into something long term!

After Casey had made it clear that we had to go to bed early last night, he slept all the way through. By 10 o'clock he had decided that we were no longer required and were both 'encouraged' to leave him in peace!
A meals have been demolished and we had a very good, long walk over the park this morning.
It looks like being a dismal day so we are going to have a quiet afternoon with Easter eggs and live football.

Casey has come to stay with us for the Easter weekend. We are both fond of him and thought he would enjoy some time away from kennels. So far he has been fantastic.
He spent most of the afternoon sun bathing in the back garden. You could tell that he was really enjoying the fresh air and warmth. A light lunch of tuna/rice/egg was consumed at record speed, followed by …… another kip in the sunshine.
After every inch of the garden had been explored we headed out to the woods. A thoroughly enjoyable experience for us both. Back at home, Casey had another kip on his bed.
After Sir had woken it was time for tea, which was consumed even faster than lunch. Then it was time for another kip while watching the footy results. A short break to watch me making focaccia ended with Casey returning to bed. He is snoring while I type this!
What a lovely, lovely hound he is. He’s already let us know what he does and doesn’t like and we are all going to enjoy his time with us here.
