Grapehound

Today we had an especially fun outing.  Luna, Mike and I traveled to a local winery to promote greyhound adoption at their wine tasting event.  It was a perfect day with cool weather, some sun, and a nice breeze.  At the event were a few vendors, a band, and plenty of greyhounds.  Luna had a great time sniffing her new buddies and working the crowd.  At one point, we visited some friends who were sitting on the winery's patio.  As we chatted, Luna eagerly went up to every person on the patio as they sampled their wine and cheese.  Everyone was amazed at how comfortable she was to give out leans (a.k.a. greyhound hugs).

Who could resist this face?

Mike visits with the other hounds.

Luna isn't the only one who gives hugs freely.


Only child syndrome.  Luna won't share her blanket.

Luna groovin' to the music.
Uh oh. Mike is falling for this handsome dude.
I'm sure we got a few people thinking about adopting a greyhound.  I made sure to advertise that Luna's sister, Balisi, is currently available for adoption.  Events like this one are so much fun.  It is nice to talk to fellow greyhound enthusiasts, pet some cute dogs, and talk with the public about how much I love greyhounds.  Our next big event will be the greyhound picnic in May.  Stay tuned for more adorable pictures!

What a fun day out and worthwhile thing to do. Greyhounds are such beautiful dogs and deserve a loving home!

I am sure Luna made loads of people consider having a Greyhound. If just one get's a home because of the event, it's well worth it.

Lovely photos of all t6he dogs, but love the one of Luna grovin to the musis:)

Luna really knows how to work the crowd. Greyhounds and wine are a great combo. When I saw the title, I thought you might be coming to Grapehounds VA in a couple weeks. Julie, who runs the Grapehounds FB page is driving down from Jersey.

I love Greyhound events. Look like everyone had a good time. I hope a few more houndies found their forever homes.
