Today was Greyhound Friends Open House. It is the shelter that mom and dad volunteer at. They go once a week to walk dogs and mom also does a little training. We got there early to help set everything up. We worked at the silent auction/raffle table. Mom likes things like that. They have a huge fenced in field out back. Before the open house started, mom and dad brought me there so I could run. I had a lot of fun. Mom and I explored the field together. There were some neat trails. Mom and dad practiced calling me to them. Just in case I was to ever get loose, mom wants to make sure I would come back when they called me. I did! I saw lots of people and met lots of new greyhounds. Mom set up a blanket for me on the grass and filled my water and food bowl. My friend, Louise, from greyhound adventures was there! I said "hi" to her. I was in 2 contests and won 2 ribbons. The first contest was for youngest greyhound. I came in second. I am 2 1/2 and the winner was 2. The second contest was for the longest tail. I was in a 3 way tie for 5th place. My tail was 21 inches long. The winner had a 24 inch tail. It was fun. I also won 2 milk bone biscuits. They were yummmy! Daddy took me for several walks and we visited all the tables. Mom won 3 things in the raffle! She won a greyhound candle holder, a greyhound for dummies book (she's not a dummy though) and a new collar for me. I usually wear my fancy "goddess" collar that has a purple leash. I also have a black leash, so this new collar will match that one. You know us girls, we like to be fashionable. Always good to have another collar.
