A Greyt Friday Walk

Hello NLGA Dog Blog Readers!

Spring is back! And it's a GREYT Friday!

Since it is spring, the location of the Greyt Friday Walk will be returning to North Mississippi Regional Park for the month of April!

We will be changing the location of this walk as the months on the calendar flip.  If there is a location you would like to walk, let us know!

The walk will begin at 6:30pm on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month. Meet at North Mississippi Regional Park in the parking lot off of 53rd Ave N. and Lyndale Ave N. This is the north most parking lot in the park. It is not the parking lot by the nature center. Here is a map of the parking lot location.

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! It's a nice walk, come join us!

[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.]

Seasons According to Day

Hello NLGA Dog Blog Readers!

Today's guest blog post comes to us from our northern friends in Canada!

Poor Day is getting a little annoyed with the seasons taking soooooo long to change... I thought we might share his seasonal views on the blog since I'm sure he isn't the only Greyhound dreaming of summer days. :)

First Day of Spring - Walk with Athletes

It's the first day of spring!  Participate in group exercise with former professional athletes!

Bring your retired greyhound to Central Park in Roseville for a brisk walk / leisurely stroll around the lake. Get some fresh air and knock the cobwebs off your hibernated muscles.

Don't have your own training partner (aka hound)?  No problem, we have extras!  Adoptable hounds available for walking on a temporary basis (or possibly you will make it permanent!).

Group exercise with retired professional athletes is tonight ... Roseville's Central Park at 6:30pm, Friday, March 20th.

Park in the parking lot off Lexington Ave in Roseville. Here is a map of where the parking lot is.

We will walk around the lake during springs first sunset.  It's a nice walk, hope you can join us!
