If there is a fun community activity in your area that’s greyhound friendly or showcases one of American Greyhound’s fantastic supporters, I would love to tell everyone about it! Email, text, or call me about it and I would love to try to feature it in my monthly column—Around Town with Your Hounds!  By the way, the event doesn’t just have to be in the Valparaiso area either—the schmoopies and I LOVE a good road trip—especially in the fall!
