A couple of weekends ago, we had our VAGA annual picnic at Angela’s. It had been postponed a couple of weeks because of bad weather, and the weather was perfect for a greyhound get-together. Lauren was on hand to greet the guests.People and dogs were spread out everywhere in the backyard.
During the fun run, some people raced their dogs.
Not really a race at all.
Some dogs just weren’t into running for our amusement.
Others, like PJ, showed off their racing form. He clocked in at 36 mph
PJ smiles for his momma as he passes by.
Flyer is cheered on as he also clocks in at 36 mph.
Stella gets a head start on Jaime and Stanley.
Stanley closes in while Jaime tries the flying position to catch up.
Neck and neck.

In the end, Stella wins by a muzzle.Kix, you’re not supposed to let your daddy win.
Louisa May got super close before she decided to veer off. I can read her ‘Therapy Dog’ tag.
