Hello Friends of Friends –
I hope all of you and all you dogs are doing well. I haven’t bothered you in a while so I guess I’m due. There are a few important things to touch on – New news & old news, reminders and surprises.
Yes, Friends of Greyhounds is smaller now than when we were in Hialeah but if you’re only looking for one dog, it makes choosing much easier! And our available hours and days to visit the dogs is greatly expanded and much more flexible. So we hope you’ll come visit the kennel dogs when you have a vacancy at your house. And tell your friends to see your Friends!!
But I do have a couple of important things to cover – – –
We have two greyhound gatherings on the schedule. We will be a the Flamingo Nursery (1655 Flamingo Road, Davie) from 10 to 3 on Sunday, March 12. It’s a 5 acre plant nursery with a big patio over by the BBQ and that’s where we gather. There’s no fenced runaround area but it’s a good place to visit and the BBQ is great!
And the next Sunday, March 19, we will be at Dog Dude Ranch (6305 SW 120 Ave, Miami) for a greyhounds only play date. They have a fenced corral area where we can safely let the dogs run off leash. Bring a folding chair and we’ll bring some coolers of water and soda. We’re planning on 10 to 1.
For both of these gatherings, we’ll have a couple of the available dogs as well as some collars and leashes and worm kits and things you might be looking for. We hope everyone will make at least one of these events. We so miss seeing all of you!
But I have an ulterior motive for this “newsletter”. I need your help to find the right home for a special dog. We are always searching for the right homes for our dogs but some of them are easy dogs that can walk right into any home and do things right. Then there are a few with some baggage. And then we have some very special challenges that push our limits and the boundaries of our hearts. That’s our Kango.
In a nutshell, Kango is going blind from a track injury and we need to find a special home for him. FoG will pay the expenses but we need the right home and the right people with greyhound experience. Please take a good look at his Petfinder profile. I apologize for the length of it but there’s so much to say!! Go to the FoG website to learn about Kango. [click here] If Kango is not right for you, maybe you know someone.
Hope to see everyone at either the Broward or Dade event this month. If turnout is good, maybe we can sneak in another one before it gets too hot.
Have a Greyt day and kiss the dogs for me!
Love, Peace & Greyhounds,
Michelle (& Jerry & all the dogs!)
