I was sitting here thinking that it is a challenge to come up with new titles for posts every week... so I just made p a word.  Cheating .. I know.
This morning began with the god's showing their fury.  We had a good thunder and lightening storm to welcome in the morning.  Ricky was up pacing back and forth around the bed to inform us that someone was letting off fireworks or something outside.  He is funny in that he just seems to want a hand on his back to let him know you are there.  By eight the weather had cleared off a bit, but it wasn't looking good for grey play.  the sky still looked threatening and the status of our meet got set to canceled on our facebook page.   At eight 8:45 I threw caution to the wind and announced  that my boys needed to get some running in.
We went to the field, the sky cleared, and it turned into a beautiful morning.  I called up other group members and rallied one other couple to our cause.  The result was a somewhat impromptu greyplay moment.

Our larger adoption group has put together an opportunity for the restaurant Chuy's to display a bunch of framed pictures of greyhounds on the walls in their new location.  In general I think Chuy's restaurants will display photos of their patrons' dogs, so it might be a good way to get out the word about this remarkable breed.  For the past few weeks I have been assembling photos of the boys.  We have also been trying to get some good group photos as well.  I've been playing around with the idea and for their individual shots and wanted to try to show my guys from some different angles.
Here is what I came up with.

I hope that Chuy's will hang these with the adoption group website on them.  I think they will because of the arrangement with the group. I'm still not quite sure what to do for a greyplay group picture.  I have some good action pictures, but the darn muzzles keep getting in the way.

We don't have a Chuy's here, but I'm awfully curious about them now. I'm glad you guys got your play date in!

Oh, I know about muzzles spoiling good photos! Great selection of photos you've done. The boys look awesome. Glad you had your play date even if it was a smaller group.

I think you'll have to start asking Kassa and Ricky if they "want to go for a Walkadilliack?" from now on. ;-)
