Me and My Hound are Southbound!

Well my friends, as you know I have been counting down the days until my trip to Florida. I am getting to leave a day early. So me and my hound Sadie and my sister and her hound Boris are heading south! I plan to be at the beach Friday!

There are so many fun things to do. Friday evening is a cookout and our group is sponsoring an Ice Cream Social. There is also a Scavenger Hunt. Saturday morning brings a get acquainted stroll through DeFuniak Springs historic district. A Refloxology and Massage Classes - hands-on demo and instruction on hound massage. In the afternoon there will be PawCasso prints - art for you and your greyhound, Easter Egg Hunt - lots of eggs with lots of goodies for humans and hounds. There will also be a Wine tasting and tour of the Chautauqua Winery in DeFuniak Springs and dinner, followed by the Greyhound Pets of America/Emerald Coast Chapter Fabulous Fashion Show. The events Friday and Saturday are right at the hotel, so you don't even have to leave.

Sunday's events are at Ebro Greyhound Park, Ebro, FL. There will be vendors, raffles, live auction, games, solo sprint on the track, senior stroll, nail trimming, Barks a Million (books and baked goodies) . Then the long drive back home. Sadie and Boris both used to race at Ebro, so it will be fun to see their reaction to the surroundings. I'm sure I will have lots to post about when I get back!
