Another GREYT Greyhound Walk!

Easter Sunday turned out to be a wonderful day for a stroll along the Dave Clark path above the Willamette River in Albany!  

Sixteen Greyhounds (well, OK....15 & a very Greyhound-like Whippet) and their people met at Monteith Park in Albany, Oregon for a pleasant river walk.  Plans for a post-walk gathering at Calapooia Brew Pub had to be scrapped due to their Easter Sunday closure.  Oh time!

Downtown dog ban goes into effect Monday
