Greyt Showing at the North Texas Irish Festival
March 1st and 2nd, 2003

Only the Italian Greyhounds know for sure what the men wore under their kilts!

We had several Italian Greyhounds (IGs) in attendance to do just that, in addition to looking cute.

The Weather Gods smiled on the North Texas Irish Festival (NTIF) this year. We had a fantastic turnout of greyhounds, IGs, volunteers, and festivalgoers.

The GU booth was busy. People passing by to pet the greys, make a donation, buy a t-shirt, or ask us QUESTIONS. Lots of questions: some mundane, some sincere, and some a bit absurd (no, the large white male greyhound is not the mother of the white IGs).

Time passed quickly for our volunteers. Most report having a good time. To get a change of scenery, some would take their greys for a tour of the rest of the NTIF, or at least make an attempt. Since most of our needle noses love attention, they got plenty wherever they went. The questions followed, too.

A big RoooRooo to these volunteers and board members who made this a success:

Dave Ainsworth Kerri Khoury
Hila Blochowitz Susan Lemon

Gail Clarkin Mark McCandless

(RoooRooo is greyhound-speak for "We appreciate you.")
