If there is a fun community activity in your area that’s greyhound friendly or showcases one of American Greyhound’s fantastic sponsors, I would love to tell everyone about it!  Email, text or call me about it and I’d 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 Valpo area either-the schmoopies and I LOVE a good road trip.
