I couldn't tell you how many greyhounds were there because there were so many. I was amazed by the number of dogs, the spectacular views, and the good company.
In the mornings we hiked Buttermilk Falls which was fantastic physical therapy for Luna. She had to navigate rocks, roots, and steps as we climbed around the gorge. On one of our hikes she saw a small snake which she watched with great intent. Suddenly she jumped straight up into the air as if she had been bitten. Upon closer examination I realized that she had shifted her weight while observing the snake and had caused a stick to poke her in the foot.

In the afternoons we dined at a lake view restaurant, wine tasted six wineries and a distillery, and hung out with the greyhounds. Luna shared her frozen vanilla yogurt with an adorable Italian Greyhound during the ice cream social. While my Mom loves greyhounds, I saw her falling for the Iggies. I won Luna a collection of holiday necklaces in the silent auction. We love them and can't wait to show them off this year.

Every night we came back to the Grayhaven Motel (fantastic place to vacation with your dog) and watched the Olympics. I tried to cuddle with Luna on the twin bed, but she was too tired to jump up one night. Oh well, there wasn't much room for both of us anyway.
The weekend was wrapped up with a group hike to one of the falls. It was amazing to see so many greyhounds on the trails. We missed the group photo :-( but when we arrived there were still plenty of greyhounds. A few (including Luna) enjoyed a quick dip in the water. We had so much fun we are already planning next year's Grapehounds Wine Tour.
|What a pretty puppy.|
