Yappy Hour at Mann's Best Friend was a HIT! Lots and lots of people showed up, with and without their greys, just to meet Sweetheart and to celebrate her recovery. I am still overwhelmed (in a good way) by the response. To stand there and see the store full of fur and human friends because of one greyhound, wow! It doesn't get much better than that. I am also amazed at how many of you follow the blog and how you have faithfully followed each step of her progress.
Sweetheart was a little overwhelmed at first, this being her first time at a meet and greet style of event. She growled and fussed a bit at some of the dogs but as time went on and everything calmed down, she showed her true Sweetheart self. She enjoyed meeting all of her fans, fur and human alike, and gave many of them tail wags and leans on their (human) legs (she is a leaner when she gets in the love zone).
OK everyone, I want a little blog participation. Each picture has a number below it. If your dog is in a picture, post a comment and tell me the name of your dog, his/her age, how long you have had him/her and what you love most about him/her. I would love to have a comment for every picture below.

Thank you to everyone who attended Yappy Hour! I hope everyone likes the pictures. Thank you to Les for taking the time to take the pictures and to post them to the blog for me tonight. Thank you to the person who raised $100 through their change bucket, what a fabulous person you are to do that for Sweetheart and thank you to the person who gave me a donation directly, very sweet. Sweetheart also got a gift of six beautiful, handmade martingale collars. They are so cute and girlie for my little girl. She will be wearing them to each event she attends.
Last but not least, thank you to everyone who have stuck with us these last two and a half months. Les and I appreciate all of your kind words and thoughts. Keep them coming, we love it!
