.............am I right in thinking you got to visit Dorsey kennel this past weekend, and the track at Phoenix? Wink.

I would love to visit Monte Hoopes and see some of his pups but I live too far away.

Smile Yep! GPA members from Albuquerque, El Paso and Phoenix got together in Phoenix for a hound day. We had dinner on Friday night in Scottsdale. Saturday morning we met for breakfast and then drove out to the Dorsey kennels. We saw the Brood mammas and pups first. Then we visited all the older pups in the runs. Then we walked up the road to the racing kennel and met Gloria. She has a nice operation with lots of dogs. We checked out all the pups that were scheduled to run that night.

Our plans then were to visit another kennel but we spent so much time at Dorsey that we called and canceled that visit. Two dogs were picked up to return to El Paso with us. Then we went to the home of the GPA president for lunch with some GPA members in Phoenix. Rory has a litter of pups growing up in his home as well as his adoptees.

After some R & R time we met again at the Phoenix Greyhound Park. We toured the paddock before the races, went up to the clubhouse for dinner and watched the racing. (I broke even Grin)
They dedicated the 5th race to our group and we went down on the rail to watch the race and then had a picture taken out on the track with the winner of the 5th race.

A fun time was had by all. My son lives in Scottsdale so I got to spend some time with him and took him out to the races with us.
