Friday Hound Blogging

Greetings Friday readers. We're coming to you today from the Big Doings Department her at IM Central. And no, we're not talking about big doings in the wonderful wacky world of the overlords. Big doings for them are things like indoor plumbing. What we're talking about is Dewey Beach.

More than 3,500 greyhounds from across the country descend on the Delaware seashore for Reach the Beach. In its 12th year, Reach the Beach, with its ice cream socials and morning walks, is not just a sandy playground for the fast canine and its human families. There are seminars, such as What is My Greyhound Trying to Tell Me? and When I'm Older, canine first aid, massage and physical therapy, other events including dinners, the Beer and Biscuits Costume Ball and the Greyhounds in Art Show.

Yep. Dewey Beach is to greyhound folks what Woodstock was to hippies, what Sturgis is to motorcycle hoodlums, what chocolate milk at lunch is to president Bush.

And you best believe we got the party going on 24/7. OK, maybe not 24/7. OK. When we say party we mean napping in groups, but hey, they call them 40 mph couch potatoes for a reason, you know? We're not talking Terriers here folks.

Hey Tuff. Maybe you can go next year. Bring us back a T-shirt.

Tuff is very sweet, happy, self-assured, and loving. He will approach and put his face in your face for attention. He is also a big time leaner. He is well-mannered for his young age. He is recovering from a broken leg. He will have a cast on his leg until ~Mid to late November. Tuff would probably do well in a working family home with well-mannered children. He is good with other dogs and would probably be fine as an only dog. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here. If you don't know about the plight of racing greyhounds go here.
