Warrenton Petco

Well the troops didn't get enough of the greyt weather on Saturday, so out they trekked to Petco on Sunday for a Meet and Greet. They wrapped up a spectacular weekend with yet another busy day in Warrenton. During the Meet they even managed some time to do a little nail trimming at the sidewalk salon. The things our greyhounds will endure to focus attention to themselves. Lots of pets, a few kisses, and hopefully a new home or two.

2009 VAGA Golf Tournament

It's starting to get a little busy around VAGA. Lots is going on. This is to let you know that registration is now open for our 4th annual "A Round for the Hounds" golf tournament. There is a sign up gadget for you in the left sidebar which will take you directly to our golf site or you can click HERE. This event sold out early last year, so don't be left out in the cold. We are limited to 72 participants. There is information available for golfers as well as volunteers for the event at the site so please check it over. While we can't promise you sub 100 degree temperatures, we can promise you a fun time for all. Also, don't forget to register for our "LICK CANINE CANCER" event on April 11th. This is something you don't want to miss.

Perfect "TEN"

It looked and felt like we should have been preparing for a picnic rather than adoption day. The weather was spectacular and the guests of honor revelled in the festivities. The crowd was large and well behaved. There was excitement and enthusiasm abound. Adopters, volunteers, passers-by, and a few guest greys on their way to a Meet and Greet, seemed caught up in the events. Who could have asked for more. Spring was in the air and everyone enjoyed it. Perfect day, perfect trip, welcome to VAGA Perfect "TEN".

The show is a little long (40 slides). I hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed being there.

Thanks to everyone who came out and pitched in on what turned out to be a GREYT day.
