Busy Busy Busy

It's been a busy summer for our pups!

Let's see - Meet 'n Greets - Marietta Farmer's Market, Dallas Farmer's Market, PetSmart in Acworth, Dallas and Douglasville, READing Paws at the Peachtree City and Newnan Libraries, Wine Tasting at The Wine Market, and Dog Days of Summer at At The Collective in Inman Park. I think my pups have more miles on the 'Roo than I do going to work 5 days a week!

Our 5K race planning is coming along GREYT! The committee has done a fantastic job on recruiting sponsors for the event. Being the M&G Chair for SEGA, I am always looking for an angle for our hounds.... Chick-fil-A is one of our sponsors, so what's the worst that could happen? They could say NO to my request. So I asked, "Would it be possible for several of our members to hand out fliers about our 5K race with a few hounds in hand?" Well, I guess the owner is a dog lover - Ralph said YES! So, our plan is to have all Black and White Cow Doggies come for the M&G at CFA. The store will provide The Cow for a photo op with the store owner.... won't that make for a GREYT story in CG! I'd like to think that this partnership with CFA and our greyhound Cow Doggies will be a big hit for our race!

One other activity this summer... The Pope High School 'Greyhounds' will have their mascots on the field again for football season starting next Friday night! Last year's opening night featured 21 SEGA greyhounds for the cheerleaders to take onto the field to kick off the night's festivities.

Well, you might say we were called up from the minors about a month ago. Head Coach Kemper contacted me to see if we could provide A as in One Greyhound for pictures with the Senior FB Players for their annual poster. Well, I was able to round up 10 on short notice, but unfortunately, it was late in the day and the pictures didn't turn out too well. Fast forward two weeks, I received another call on Friday to see if we could provide Greyhounds again for pictures on Saturday (the next morning!). Well, SIX greyhounds showed up for that photo - and the posters should be out soon. See my version of the photo below...

How COOL To have the School Mascot in your photos for the class of 2010!
