Dusty visits the grandparents

Dusty and I just got back from a short visit to Tampa Bay. Ma and Pa Sharp enjoyed every minute of their 22-hour visit with their favorite great-greyhound.

I loaded Dusty into the Kia Koach on Thursday morning for the 200-mile-or-so drive to Largo to help Pa set up his new Roku TV and introduce Ma and Pa to their new electronic roommate named Alexa. All technology tasks went smoothly. And as always, Dusty reveled in being the center of the grandparents' attention.

Dusty got a couple of quick walks around the Sharps' neighborhood. The highlight for her was a walk with Gramps and me Thursday afternoon at Largo Central Park, where holiday displays are already under installation. Here's a video of Gramps with Dusty's leash:

As always when we are in Largo, Dusty got a visit from Jane, a neighbor of the Sharps who loves to stop in for a quick hello.

It was a short visit, but a good time was had by all. We'll see the Sharps again when we drive to Largo during Christmas week for our annual meetup with Uncle T.J. and Aunt Sue.

OFF-LEASH SUNDAY: A reminder that Friends of Greyhounds will host an off-leash play date for the greyhounds Sunday at Dog Dude Ranch, 6305 SW 120th Ave. in Miami. Hours are 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

This gathering is a long time coming. The last two scheduled events at Dog Dude Ranch were rained out in April and cancelled because of Hurricane Irma damage in September.

FoG also has an event scheduled there for Dec. 3.
