  • FRIDAY EVENING - Working on something for early arrivers or locals to do. Keep looking for more details. Paws crossed we can get something arranged.
  • SATURDAY EVENING - If you have time, we hope you will join us for an ice cream social starting around 7:30 pm after the event. Muzzled sighthounds will be able to frolick, while their humans enjoy ice cream and watermelon. Yes, the hounds can have some ice cream too. Leg stretching time for all before the trip back home. This is a FREE event at a local home, about 1 acre is fenced for hound fun. 40 ft porch for humans or hounds. Bring your hounds dog bed. We should have enough chairs, but if you have yours, please bring them. Shine or rain!

SUNDAY MORNING - photo ops. More to come on this, but we will schedule an opportunity to let your hounds off lead and let our photographer, Mindy, capture some beautiful moments. Professionally printed photos will be sent to your home after you select the ones you would like to have. Price to be determined. We will have to start early with it being July and all. We will work out the details and get a schedule setup for those interested. Stay tuned. (Thanks Patricia C. for the GREYT idea!!)
