Cruelty Free Friday: For The Ghosts and Finn

Finn, the whippet in Sofia

My ten day 'ghost free journey' aka vegan challenge continues through Monday, November 28th, and I could not be more pleased with how moving and transformative this experience has been. You can follow our dialogue and information exchange on The Ghost in Our Machine (TGIOM)'s Facebook page. During the time that I have taken this journey our whippet Finn has been very ill with a degenerative heart condition. The support of my new friends via TGIOM and e-mail from afar has been hugely helpful.

We are doing everything that we can to insure that Finn is comfortable and not in pain. Our children love him tremendously, and we are so relieved that we were able to bring him with us to Sofia during what might be his last winter with us.

Thanksgiving this year was dedicated to 'the ghosts' and of course, to Finn, the pillar of our family. A very special thanks to Donna Oakes, Rosemary Tarentino Foos, and Liz Marshall for their coaching and support during the ghost free challenge. This is just the beginning of a journey that has surely just begun ... for the ghosts and whippet lovers everywhere.
