Greyt Friday Walk -- 4th of July Holiday Weekend Edition!


In celebration of the 4th of July holiday weekend, the Greyt Friday Walk will be taking place at Minnehaha Falls Regional Park this week!

The walk will begin at 1:00pm. We will walk past the falls, along the creek, to the river, and back again. After the walk, we will find a nice shady spot to sit and socialize. If you would like, you can even visit the Sea Salt Eatery for a late lunch/snack. Or you can skip the walk and just come to socialize! Meet near the Sea Salt Eatery at 1.

And for the every-walk reminders...

In the event of severe weather warnings, the Greyt Friday Walk will be cancelled. Light rain, snow, and normal variations in Minnesota weather will not cancel the walk. Adjust accordingly and come prepared for the elements!

[Note: Participants in The Greyt Walking Series events assume complete responsibility for themselves and their greyhounds (and/or other dogs). Northern Lights Greyhound Adoption, walk leader, and walk participants are not held liable for damages, injuries, or losses suffered before, during, or after the walks.]

Oakdale Summerfest Parade

The Oakdale Summerfest Parade is on Thursday!  That's tomorrow!  This is the shortest parade we attend, at just 1 mile long! Although it is short in length, it is a BIG parade as far as attendance! Plus, they have the best cheese curds in the park at the end of the parade.

The dogs get lots of attention at this parade! It starts at 6:00 PM.

Parade line-up is in the parking lot of Transfiguration Catholic Church in Oakdale.

The parade line-up starts at 5:00pm with the parade kicking off at 6pm.

Meet Action AKA Duke

Here is an update on Duke from his foster family...

As sweet and calm as an almost three year old boy can be. He loves to walk, and is a good walker. He would love to catch a squirrel or bunny, but has figured out the person on the other end if the leash is, well, A LOT slower, and will probably never, ever, catch anything unless it is tossed to her. Duke remains interested, but is settling down nicely.
