Around Town With Your Hound!

American Greyhound Partnership Events

Happy New Year!  The schmoopies and I had a wonderful holiday season and hope that you did as well.  The schmoopies made a New Year’s resolution to nap more, but I decided we are going to be visiting even more events in 2018.  We hope to see you at one of American Greyhound’s fellow Greater Valparaiso Chamber Members or other supporters’ events this month or coming up!

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 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 if there’s good coffee or a travel buddy involved!
