A few months back, we were invited to join a local greyhound walking group. We have been on several greyhound group walks the last two months and have a couple more scheduled before the end of the year. The boys love to go places and wait patiently for us finish getting ready so they can go on their next adventure.
For our first walk in October, we took a nice stroll around the streets around Monument Avenue in Richmond. We stop at the Monument for a group picture. We had a nice turnout….. 23 hounds!
It was a great place to walk. We had beautiful weather and the architecture of the older homes on Monument and the surrounding streets are fabulous!
The following weekend after our Around The Town Hounds monthly group walk, we joined some greyhound friends for Fetch A Cure’s first annual Mutt Strutt in Bryan Park. Monies raised from this walk go to help in the fight against cancer. Such a worthy cause!!
The walk was a day before Halloween, so we saw some interesting doggie costumes. 😛
Some were extreme like above (I felt bad for this dog) and some were cute like below.
This is House. He is one of the largest greyhounds I have ever met at 95lbs. His name is well suited for him.
And Phantom is the smallest greyhound I have ever met at 45lbs.
She sure was cute in her Elephant costume.
We had a Wizard in our Team Greyhound group too.
This dog was too cute sitting on this log waiting for the walk to begin.
Fetch A Cure had a photographer take group pictures. Below is team greyhound.
Our most recent walk was this morning. We met up the ATH group at Point of Rocks Park in Chester, VA for a lovely walk. This park is huge!! A few pictures from today’s walk are below.
I know there is something good down there mom!
And lastly the group photo from today. 22 hounds on today’s walk……fantastic!!
I have not been around to your blogs lately. 😦 I will be stopping by next week to get caught up on what is going on with you, promise! We are heading to a warm, sunny place for Thanksgiving! Hope everyone has a fabulous and safe Turkey day!!!!

I won’t tell my kids that you guys go on so many cool walks. They would be very jealous.
How fun! I love the pictures of all the hounds together. We are looking forward to getting out on some walks with friends this weekend.
Very impressive. It must be fun to take part!
Thanks for sharing
Looks like fun..those are some great locations to walk. richmond is so full of little gems.
Great turn outs! You guys must be quite the sight for people who are not used to seeing greyhounds.
You get such great numbers of hounds on your walks:) Yes, you sure must be quite a sight. There’s not much better than a group Greyhound get-together! Lovely photos.
I wish we had enough local greyhounds here to get together for walks like that – looks like a great time!
