Pet Food Day - Saturday, August 19th - Animal Crackers Pet Supply in Corvallis

Pet Food Day at Animal Crackers is an annual event featuring pet food vendors from around the country displaying/touting/free-sampling their pet foods.  It's a GREYT way for your Greyhound to sample some of the best dog foods currently manufactured.  Keith & I will be there for sure.  The event is from 10:00 - 4:00.  Don't miss it!

Animal Crackers says:  "Come meet our food vendors on August 19th!  They will be here to answer questions and hand out samples. We will have refreshments from local businesses and you can enter to win prizes!"

It looks like the picnic scheduling conflicted with something called an "eclipse."  The official notice is below...


Hi everyone.  I need to let you know that the GPANW Board of Directors has decided to postpone our August 19 RooUnion Picnic & Houndwash.  In view of mounting advisories to avoid travel that weekend because of the anticipated eclipse traffic, it has been decided to postpone this event.  When planning began for the 2017 RooUnion, one of our priorities was to find a day that was most convenient to the Tubbs', whose property we use for this event - and the upcoming eclipse escaped our radar!  😞 

Please share this with any greyhound friends you have that may have been planning to attend.  We will be deciding on a new date and I will let you know as soon as that happens.  Thank you and please stayed tuned for a new RooUnion announcement.

Meet "Ethyl!" She's Smart, Beautiful And Seeking Her Forever Home!

This is Ethyl...OK, you can change her name...and she's currently being fostered with Barry in Corvallis.  She's 2 years old, 55 pounds and quite the young lady! She is very intelligent, curious, affectionate and gorgeous!  In addition, she is 95% housebroken (no accidents so far) and great on a leash.  She also gets along great with my grey, Keith, who is also teaching her about life away from the kennel.

Yes, she is directly from the kennel, so she has a few things to learn as she makes her way into her forever home.

If you are interested in meeting Ethyl (no can simply stop by and say "hi" to her), get in touch with me at
