We sell our art primarily through our POP-UP STORES, but we know not everyone can shop in person. Since the majority of of what we offer are one-of -a-kind items, contact us at AmethystGroups@yahoo.com for creating your custom gifts!
We do have some items offered here, as well as at our eBay store so check both out. If you don't see what you desire, just contact us directly. Here is the link to our eBay store:
Through eBay's Giving Works , many of our eBay store items are raising funding for our new friends at Hound Sanctuaryhttp://www.houndsanctuary.org to help rescue and rehome Galgos, Podencos and more hounds from overseas in need; and Hand Me Down Dobes http://hmdd.org/ to help rehome dobermans in Central Ohio. Of course, we continue to fully support GREYLong http://greylong.org/.

About our donations and fund-raising: While the RRGS (Retired Racing Greyhounds) we have been adopted by have been primarily affected by Osteosarcoma and Mast Cell Cancers, we are also researching and supporting other canine cancers. Since we lost our Azrial in 2009 to canine osteosarcoma, the fundraising division of Amethyst Group has donated over $36,000 in cash, auction items and in-kind services to the fight against canine cancers. And ALL the thanks go to our wonderful customers who purchase from us - YOU are the ones who have made this possible and we thank YOU so much!
Every item we sell has all proceeds donated to the fight against canine cancers or to support the rescue of the Galgos (Spanish greyhounds); Lurchers (greyhound mixes) and Pitbulls (the most misunderstood gentle breed ever). I have many items listed here, but our primary sales location is on our eBay Store - www.stores.ebay.com/Amethyst-Group-Inc
American Lurcher Project's store is offering our PUPDora Lurcher Jewelry and PUPDora Mobius cowl Neck warmer/collars! The American Lurcher Project (formerly known as the Ohio Lurcher Project) is on Facebook and also online at http://ohiolurcherproject.webs.com
Update on Canine Cancers: The gene underlying canine osteosarcoma (long bone cancer) has been identified. This not only helps the dogs, but translates directly to osteosarcoma in preadolscent males humans. Back to the hounds - there are open studies now for osteo treatment and a canine cancer vaccine. Watch my facebook page (www.facebook.com/LisabethRamsdell) for updates as they happen!
We have new additions - in gifts AND in houndies!!
Hounds first! Our greyt team now numbers 5 with the additions of our greyhound twins, 18 month old Sienna and Sawyer! They didn't seem interested in racing, so their awesome kennel, Craigie Kennel - Julie and Steve - decided they needed a kouch rather than a Kennel! Adopted through Minnesota Greyhound Adoption, the girls are having the time of their lives shaking up the staus quo here on Sandburr Drive.
The fight against canine cancer continues here....sweet memories
Our Galgo, Maxie (aka Maxwell Pablo Edison to his FaceBook fans), now runs free with his twin, Bella. While they both battled cancer in their lives, they crossed the Bridge in old age and with love. We are sure they have reunited with Azie and GiGi and are having a blast with all of their friends, new and old.
Here are a few recipes that sustained our cancer hounds and led them to longer lives....
* Holistic Cancer Diet is based on Brown rice, darkly colored fruits and veggies all cooked and fed daily. I use a crock pot to make this. Add what you want, but not any onions, garlic, grapes, raisins or other toxic food for your houndies.
I use a
- 3 lb bag of brown rice and add to it
- 11-13 c. water,
- a bundle of chopped kale,
- 5 apples chunked up,
- 1 each red, yellow and green sweet peppers deseeded and chopped,
- 1 cup or more of blueberries
- 2-4 pounds of chicken (deboned)
- 5-6 tomatoes chunked up
- and anything else that is veggie and has a rich color.
Add all to a large crock-pot or divide among 2. Add water or broth as needed to cover all. Cook on low until all water is absorbed. You can also make this in a pot on the stove-top and cook until the rice is done. Bag in zip locks and store in the fridge until needed. These bags freeze ok.
I madevthese for Bella since she had trouble eating and keeping weight on. She loved these!
- 2 lb ground beef (the higher the fat content, the better)
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
Mix all well. You can make these into meatballs (the size depends on the size of your dog )and bake at 350 for about 20 min, and they are good to freeze. I make this into a meatloaf and bake for 35-45 minutes at 350 and chunk it up at dinner time.
Everyone who knows me knows my love of crystals , minerals and gemstones and affinity for crystal healing.
