Starting with 2000, back issues of CG Magazine are available for purchase. The following articles are online but to get the most out of them, you need to see the original articles in the magazine, which contain lots more photos. Because they really add to the articles, I urge you to purchase the issue and support The Greyhound Project.

Excellent with Cats After All. By Kris Metz. An interesting and unnerving story about Kris and her greyhound, Excel, who was not cat safe but who went home with her anyway. Luckily it had a happy ending. The original article has wonderful photos not included here. Please be aware that some greyhounds deemed cat safe are not; the reverse is also true. So please be vigilant when you bring home a greyhound to a home with cats (and small dogs). http://wp.me/PKYhj-5R

Hounds Battle the Bulge. By the late Lauren Emery. Not sure if your dog is the right weight? Every adopter should review this article from time to time. You may think your greyhound is at proper weight but maybe not. http://wp.me/PKYhj-UW
A Closer Look at Pannus. By Praveen Mutalik. An in-depth article with lots of photos in the original article showing what happens at an veterinary ophthalmologist visit, including shots of proparacine and the use of a Kowa Fundus camera.
