Highlight of the week was the weekend at Pompano Beach Seafood Festival. I can talk about it with happiness and energy now because it is behind us now, but it was a full weekend for the volunteers, both two and four legged. Special thanks to Lisa Z. and Bailey who braved the crowds and the parking and rescued our president and vice president. I mean that literally, they were the only help received all weekend and like the Calvary, they came through just in time and provided them with much needed help and gave them a break from the action. It’s a beautiful scenario out there with sun, fun, and throngs of people, nice breeze off the ocean, but all that will also make you very hungry and wear you out. As forecast, all the vendors were on the sidewalk and the music was on the beach. There were plenty of people curious about greyhounds, the donations were pretty good, over seven hundred dollars unofficially received. There weren’t any of those ‘will be by the kennel tomorrow morning to adopt’ people, but lots of interest as we continue to spread the word about these fabulous dogs. Thanks, also, to the Festival people for allowing us to come and show the dogs, which always helps a great deal to bring in as much donations as possible with as little going back out as possible. Lisa is the seasoned pro and now Bailey looks like a professional ambassador for the greyhounds. Michelle, not usually being one for excessive verbiage, unless she’s chewing you out, couldn’t stop talking about how much they did, and with thirty active hours of the Festival and only them for relief, I can see how much Michelle and Jerry appreciated their help. We even sold out on Saturday of all those treat cookies that Michelle had hand packaged, and there was even people coming back on Sunday looking for more. Ok, that’s my description of it, as told to me straight from the Vice President’s mouse.

Before I forget, we will be at Pet Supermarket on E. Sunrise Blvd. this coming Saturday from ten until two o’clock, if you can, stop by and say hello, we’d love to see you, and you can bring your grey if you want, always greyt to see our alumni. Franco and Giddy Up are new arrivals at the kennel. Franco is a handsome black yute (youth), only twenty months old. He worked the crowd at the Festival like a pro too. Giddy Up is a beautiful Red Fawn girl, three years old, and just retired from racing. Giddy Up is very sweet and quiet. We also have a few more and you can check them out on the website or Pet Finder. Michelle and Jerry have all the personal information on them and will glad to provide you with it and even arrange a visit to your house to see how they react to your home and family. Just contact them through the website or phone.

We’re looking for a property that we can use for our greyhound gatherings. If anyone knows of an area in the Davie area, or even west Broward, that we could use or rent, set up a fenced in area with parking, please let Michelle or Jerry know. They made contact with a long-time friend at the Festival this past weekend, but if you have any ideas, feel free to contact us and run them by us. Ok, I think I have most of it covered, have a greyt week and don’t forget, the heat is here already, our greys do not have a high tolerance of extreme heat, so monitor them when they are outside and especially when you hit the road, whether it be a journey or short hop to the store around the corner, South Florida heat is deadly. Have a greyt week, shall return next week with more excitement.
