Bring your hound's dog bed. We should have enough chairs, but if you have yours, please bring them. Shine or rain!

SUNDAY MORNING - photo ops. You may email KyGreyhounds to secure a time or sign-up at the KyG booth during the Greyt Fest. Our photographer, Mindy, will capture some beautiful moments. while your hound is running off-lead in a fenced area. You will select the photos you want before you leave. Professionally printed photos will be sent to your home. Price to be determined. We will have to start early (7:30 am) with it being July and all.(Thanks Patricia C. for the GREYT idea!!)
