A Day at the Beach ~ Paw Beach Resort

Hot weather is already here, so save this day for a Day at the Beach - Paw Beach Resort - with your greyhounds: Sunday, May 15, 2011, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

 

A Day at the Beach will be at Paw Beach Resort, 2280 Kathryn Lane, Plano, Texas (otherwise known as a dog day care and boarding facility on other days). This will be a greyhound-only event, and each greyhound will be required to wear a muzzle in the play area. No snorkeling gear is necessary and bikinis are optional.

 

Plan to bring your greyhounds for an afternoon of fun and play for the dogs. Greyhounds and their people will enjoy the sunshine, wading pools for the dogs, and refreshments for all.   

 

Save the date: SUNDAY, MAY 15, 2011 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.  More details will follow.

Speaking of pictures, you'll be hooked watching the slide show on the Home Page. Do you recognize your greyhound there? If not, send us a favorite picture of your greyhound(s)

Spotlight on Wray

Wray has been with TAGS for a while and has now blossomed into a wonderful companion pet. This reserved fellow is ready to become a permanent family member in a lifetime home. Wray has had a new fostering experience with a new couple and their greyhound. This is what they have to say about Wray:

 

We have had Wray for seven weeks now and he has proved to be an exceptional greyhound companion for us and our 7 year old greyhound, Wiki. Wray is shy at times but with time he is coming out of his shell. He has never had an accident in the apartment and has never attempted to get on furniture. He loves his foster brother Wiki and loves having another dog around for guidance and company. Wray's favorite things are walks, car rides and snuggling with his foster brother. He also enjoys chasing squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, etc. We have a lot of wild life around our place. Wray is learning to give paw; he is a very smart boy. Wray would love to go to a home with a nice yard to play in and another big dog to play with. His eyes will melt your heart.  He has so much love to give. He is one of the best greyhounds we have ever had.  Come see Wray at one of our Meet & Greets.
