HOT, HOT, HOT!
It's more than a steam bath out there, it's downright dangerous for both man and beast. Please walk your dogs early and late in the day to stay cool; vigorous exercise should be not be permitted (even if your dog wants to run); and make sure plenty of water is available at all times. To protect your dog's feet, keep your dog on grass, not on asphalt. And if you don't have air conditioning, fans are a necessity, not a luxury--Greyhounds are very sensitive to hot weather.
In an abundance of caution, we will not be getting more Greyhounds from the south until after Labor Day, so as to avoid overheating emergencies during transportation. Better safe than sorry!

ROGER MEETS HIS MATCH
Roger Penske (left), son of the late, great, Lassinagh Silky and prolific sire Flying Penske, goes nose to toes with his Mini Me. This paper mache statue, made by Vermont artist Terri Malloy, is the spittin' image of Roger. And why not? He was the model! The piece was created and donated to commemorate Make Peace With Animals' 25th Annual Homecoming. Luckily for Roger, his adopter had the winning bid at the silent auction.
