Denton's Dog Days of Summer (2003)
June 7th, 2003

This was the first year for Greyhounds Unlimited to participate in Denton's Dog Days of Summer event. Thanks to two wonderful volunteers, Terry and Rochelle Botkin, for suggesting this event to us.

This was the 10th anniversary for Dog Days of Summer. Usually this event is set up on Denton's town square but, due to construction, this year it was held at Civic Center Park. This park is full of big trees so our hounds could lay in the grass. Our booth was placed near the little pools set up for the dogs to cool off in. This turned out to be a big plus for us because our dogs received a lot of attention.

None of our dogs participated in the official costume contest, but we did have a few enjoying their own contest:
—  Chloe (Laura's grey) and Ebony (Felicity's grey) paraded with a silk emblazoned with "Adopt A Greyhound".
—  Lazy Louie (Terry and Rochelle's grey) sported Steve and Ruthanna's donation coat on several walks around the park.
Both of these coats sparked several conversations and inquiries about our wonderful Greyhounds.
