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

Bohemian and Victorian Hand-woven and custom crochet throws and wraps are now offered here and on our eBay store.

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 addition of our littlest sighthound, Remmy. Rem is a rescue senior IG (Italian Greyhound) and filled with personality! His pack name is The Notorious B.I.G.gie and he is our Sloughi's best buddy!


The fight against canine cancer continues here....
Our Galgo, Max, is now cancer FREE after a battle with EMP (Extramedullary Plasmacytoma) in his lower jaw. In late summer of 2013, Maxie had a Mandibulectomy (removal of a portion of his lower jaw) after the rounds of oral chemo were not shrinking the tumor. Maxie is doing greyt now - thank you to all for the thoughts and good wishes! He's on the holistic cancer diet * now and doing well.

Maxie's twin, our Galga, Bella, is recovered from mast Cell cancer but is now fighting congestive heart failure. With the meds and the wonderful "Weight On Meatballs"**  she gets, she is holding her own and the prognosis is good.

* 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.

***Weight-On MeatBalls

I make these for Bella since she has trouble eating and keeping weight on. She loves these!
  • 2 lb ground beef (the higher the fat content, the better)
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 c Karo syrup
  • 1 Cup oatmeal 
  • 4 eggs

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.
