A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for which is on HubGarden
Bring your own dog and have a fun day out
Greyhounds and Airedales! What fun! They are two lovely natured dogs and two gorgeous looking dogs. I have owned a greyhound for a short while and have had good friends who had two Airedales.

At this function, you will get to meet and greet the gorgeous greyhounds and their families at the large social event that is held twice a year.

There will be some of their foster dogs there for you to meet as well. Volunteers will be there to help with the dogs and the stalls.

You are welcome to bring your dog along as long as he/she is well socialised and they must stay on a lead at all times.

This will be a fun day out for greyhounds, Airedales and their humans.

It will be on Sunday 28th April 2019 from 10.00 am until 1.00 pm. The venue will be the Piney Lakes Reserve on Leech Highway, Winthrop and entry will be via the Murdoch Drive side.

There is a $10 joining fee which includes a raffle ticket. There will also be a fancy dress dog and human competition!

Other things on offer on the day will include:

A sausage sizzle to stave off the hunger with a meat and vegetarian option
The Café Au Lait Coffee van will have all your coffee needs
GAWA stall will have greyhound merchandise and other dog goods
Live auction
Scent to Rescue Candles
BADA (Bikers against dog abuse) stall

Walk around the lake at 10.30 am

The event will be run by Greyhound Adoptions who started in 2008. They are a not-for-profit animal welfare organisation and their main aim is to rescue and re-home greyhounds.

As a rescue group, they have a no-kill policy and take in dogs which have not made the grade on the race track. They also take in those that will no longer race and place them in homes. Here they will hopefully receive all the love and affection they give. They also believe that they need to educate owners and people in general what a wonderful and loyal pet a greyhound can be.

I can attest to this having owned one for a short time. He had the most gorgeous nature and was not phased by anything - my blind dog snapped at him every time he came near, and yet this big greyhound did not once snap back or show the slightest bit of aggression.

My greyhound whom I named Horse

When you adopt a greyhound, you will often be saving the dogs from a life which can be short and unhappy.

Greyhound Adoptions are always looking for foster carers due to the high amount of ex-racing greyhounds available.
