Open House 2001 at the Lemon's Kennel
Saturday, June 16, 2001

We did it for the hounds.

About 260 of us did, that is. And the hounds say "thank you." Although it comes out as "AhRooooo".

We came with our greys. We came without our greys. Some of us were old friends who stopped by to say, "hi." Some of us were from other rescue groups wanting to share their love of the hounds.

The first Open House at the Lemon's Kennel was a success. People and greyhounds everywhere. Guests who weren't greyhound parents were amazed that so many could be in one place and get along.

Maybe that's one reason we love them.

We chatted with other greyhound parents, some we haven't seen in years. We opened our hearts and wallets. We bought greyhound memorabilia from the Sales Tent, entered in the Greyt Roo Raffle, or bid in the auction under the shade trees.

Throughout the day we also were able to enjoy some fine Texas wines. Of course, a few of our four-legged children helped themselves to snacks from the wine table.

Potential parents could "adopt a grey for a day." We hoped that maybe our needle nose companions would work their magic. Indeed some did, because seven found forever homes. Six other folks are even considering adoption because of the greys loving eyes.

And what should all greyhound parents do when they get home? Why brush their children's teeth, of course! Marijean Grunewald, DVM, educated us about proper doggie dental care. Yes, there really is poultry-flavored dog toothpaste, and it really doesn't smell bad.

We did it for the hounds, and we had a good time.
