We left yesterday morning at 8:30AM. It was a long drive but smooth sailing the whole way. Daddy said it took us about 7 1/2 hours to get here. I just laid down on the back seat. We stopped at several rest areas to stretch our legs and take care of business. Mom and dad played music most of the way to help the time go faster. The minute we pulled into the hotel parking lot, I saw the other greyhounds!! It was like a family reunion. I had to say "Hi" to every single one! We went into the hotel to check in. They even had a sign in the door welcoming all the dogs. In the lobby I got to meet about 5 more. Mom and dad got me to ride in the "room that moves". I didn't realize it until it was too late!! They tricked me!! Our room is amazing! Much better than the one we stayed at last year. We have a little living room and separate bedroom area. There is even the perfect place for my bed right next to mom and dad! It is very nice. After daddy rested for a bit, we took a walk around the outlet shoppes. We are SO close to the main event area that you can see the tents from out hotel room window. Many of the stores had greyhound welcome signs posted. That means I could go into those stores! I went into 2 stores that sold clothing, a book store and a really cool store that sold crafts. I met other greyhounds and their humans as we walked along. I had to stay in the room while mom and dad went to get dinner. When they got back they got ready to take me for a walk. Even though we are on the 3rd floor, I insist on the stairs! No more rooms that move!! We had just entered the stairwell when mom looked out the window. It was pouring outside!! The wind was blowing too!! We went back to our room and waited until the storm passed. To say I am excited to be back in Gettysburg would be an understatement. I had a hard time finishing my dinner!! At 1AM I started whining. Mom couldn't sleep. Daddy took me out to go potty. I really didn't have to go! I only wanted to see other dogs!!! To my surprise there weren't any!!! They were all in their rooms sleeping. I used the bathroom anyway and went back inside.I settled down and finally fell asleep. Humans claim that we animals don't anticipate or think about the future. That of course just isn't true. I know where I am and I am thinking about the events that today will bring- and I am very excited!! This morning mom took me out for potty. I met some really nice greyhounds.Mom chatted with the man who adopted them. We are back in the room now. It is time for daddy to get up and for me to have breakfast. I will write more later. Stay tuned!!
