A hot time was had by all
|A black-hound convention: Molly, Dusty, Domino and Slinky
At one point about halfway in, Jerry B checked the weather status on his brand-spanking-new smartphone, and he said the Feels Like was 99.
It wasn't completely unbearable. We did have some nice shade cover out on the patio and we would catch a nice breeze now and then. But the hounds weren't very active, preferring to find a relatively cool spot to lie down. And not many of the humans stayed around for the entire four hours.

Michelle spent awhile talking with a young couple who came for a visit after checking out friendsofgreyhounds.org last week. Posey put on a nice audition for them, and it seemed like they might be serious about adopting.
And Rick and Janine drove all the way up from Cutler Bay with their two daughters and their hound, Bullet. They're the family Michelle and I visited a few weeks ago with Kango, the FoG guest whose eyesight is failing. They're still considering taking in Kango. Michelle learned something a couple of weeks ago about Kango's history that might be significant. She wants to have another conversation with the veterinarian specialist to see if it might make a difference in his prognosis.
Other than that, we saw a few regulars. Mike was there with Andy, as always. Beth and David brought Molly. Randy and Jill brought Slash and birthday girl Rainey. And Jerry B. came with Slinky.
Michelle is squeezing in one more outdoors outing this season -- a leash-free play date for the dogs June 4 at Dog Dude Ranch in Miami. Check Dusty's Calendar for details.
