Well it seems that a number of things have been happening around here and I'm a little behind in my blogging. First and probably most pleasing to Kassa is that we have had some fall weather. This means that the dog park group has started meeting again. We gained a new member last week named Specs . A newer dog always brings a lot of energy to the group and gets their juices going. It was really nice to see the guys all running together.
Specs is a bigger boy. He was showing the other dogs whose who by body checking them when chasing the ball. Kassa seemed to take this in stride (literally).
Not only does the nicer weather result in the group meeting again, it also means the baseball fields aren't quite so busy. Kassa and I have been sneaking in early morning visits and really enjoying them. In the other park when Kassa grabs the ball he has to stop almost immediately because of the fence line. In the baseball park he can run through and gallop around. Its really fun to watch him.
The last thing that went on was the fall greyhound picnic. The group uses this picnic to promote greyhound adoption and raise money for the "Angle Fund". The preliminary results are that they raised enough money to rescue 1.5 broken leg hounds. A really great result IMO.
