Christmas Parade

Join us as we participate in the 2023 Whitemarsh Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 2, 2023 at The Avenue in WhiteMarsh, Maryland.  Our Greyhounds are walking  in the parade ahead of Santa.  What an honor to lead the big guy in the red suit!!   The actual parade starts at 10:00 AM however line up begins at 8:00 AM.*  We hope to have lots of fellow hounds to join us.  Dress your hounds in their holiday finest and don't forget your reindeer antlers!  Santa needs his "reindeer" to help him through the parade.  Also make sure you also dress in your Holiday-festive gear. Santa hats, Elf hats etc are great. (Note no Santa suits for us humans please --there is only one Santa in the parade.)  Make sure to dress yourself and your hounds for the weather as we await our turn in the parade -- it can get chilly - remember we are at the end.  Bring your blankets, warm sweaters, & coats for our fur kids to keep them warm while we wait.  They will get lots of "visitors" while we wait from folks that want to pet and give love to them.  Our Staging area is usually next to Carters Store.  The best place to park is across the street at Whitemarsh Mall near the old Sears store and PF Changs Restaurant.   There is a check in at the Avenue entrance --no need to check in but if you are unsure of where to go, to line up they can help.  Also note the roads in front of the Avenue will start to be shut down around 9-930AM but you can get on the mall parking lot from other entrances.   * you can aim to get to the lineup spot around 9-930 if you are concerned about the cold with your hound.  The group will already be checked in with the parade officials.

Summertime Heat

Summertime Heat
Heat will kill your dog. If it’s been hot, please use common sense and good judgment when you take your dog out in the heat. Greyhounds, because of their lack of fat and hair, don’t have the insulation other dogs have to the heat. They need to be in a controlled temperature environment of 68 – 72 degrees. The following are some guidelines.

Water, water, water.

Just a reminder pavement can be scorching hot for our dogs.  How hot is too hot for a dog's sensitive paw pads?  Temperature at 85 degrees or over without the chance for the pavement to cool down, may make the ground too hot for safely walking a dog.
