Greyhounds In Gettysburg

Recommended Posts

I will be at GiG on Saturday, and will be looking to sell my greyhound cart. We are getting rid of everything and traveling in an RV full time, and the cart simply won't fit in the RV. I will have the cart with me at GiG on Saturday, April 27 (only day I can go), and would very much like to not go home with it. Cart is 2' wide and 4' long and fits even the largest greyhound comfortably. Crib bumpers, canopy, and crate pad are included. Canopy/netting is removable. Feel free to PM me for more information.

That is a very swanky cart, and I love the models in it too! :beatheart:beatheart:beatheart:beatheart

Lee, Lu-Ann, Gail, Jim, Lisa, Dave and I will be there this year. We need to meet up because we really miss Camp Cocktail. I agree with Tricia, keep calling the QI; they always have cancellations and sometimes people inform others on GT. Perhaps you may see some cancellation posts on this thread. :wave

 

I'll see you there! lol I love going to another country to see my neighbors. It's become a tradition. lol

Any other podenco folks attending? I'll be there with little Hada, the podenco maneta.

Joy and I missed last year but we'll be there this year. We're staying at the Quality Inn, Battlefield. I don't have the ideal room but it's OK. I'm hoping to see Joy run in the Blur of Fur after my non-blur 5K that morning. We're coming in on Thursday some time depending on if I can leave work early on Thursday and going home on Monday so we can do more on Sunday.

FYI for those looking for at room at the Quality Inn, I'm cancelling my room at the Quality Inn today.

 

2019 will be a very odd year for us. For the first time in 15 years, we will not be attending any greyhound events...hard to believe.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

Jan and Dave, I hope you are ok. Len and I will not be at Gettysburg either. Len is having his second spine surgery next week.

I've sent 3 emails to the Eisenhower asking if there is a refrigerator and a hair dryer in the room, and another about my room's location within the building. The clerk I spoke with kinda blew me off. 

Post GIG:  Our room at the Eisenhower only had electricity in part of it, which we didn't discover until we returned after dark. Luckily we were able to move down the hall to another room

Outside of the hotel still has broken glass, nails, broken tile and interior wood debris. The room just down from us had the bathroom ceiling collapse from a leaking shower above them.

So this was my first year attending and I loved it.  Maya had her nails done, road an elevator , had a photo shoot, ice cream social, walked the battlefields!!  At 11 1/2 she was pretty tired.  

The Eisenhower has its issues and our room was no exception but they were very attendant to all our issues and fixed them in a timely manner.  I'm guessing there must have been close to 200 dogs at their facility so I think they do their best.  And downtown Gettsburg near the rotary was just fabulous😄😄🐶🐶
