October is Greyhound Awareness Month, and as you can see below, we have lots of greyt events coming up to put our greyhounds in the spotlight! Between The Great Rescue Roundup, Barktoberfest, a Major League Baseball Players Alumni "Swing with the Legends" golf fundraiser featuring greyhounds on the first tee, along with our regular meet and greets, there's an event for everyone and every Edward greyhound. We will wrap it up at the end of the month a Blessing of the Hounds (more details to come), so we encourage everyone to get a hound (or two) out to an event. If you cannot find an event in your area, go out for a walk in your neighborhood. Let the "outsiders" get to know your greyhound - after all, nobody is a better ambassador than a greyhound!
