Ben Wheeler, TX – Road Trip

 

Join TAGS for a fall road trip to Ben Wheeler, TX. This is an outing for all Greyhounds and Greyhound owners. Ben Wheeler is a little over an hour's drive from Dallas. (See directions). It is near Canton, and Edom is 

"just down the road".  October 18th is also the Edom Arts Festival. 

There is no set time – arrive and leave when you want, but most people will be there by early afternoon.

 

We will meet in the Historic District of this small East Texas town for an afternoon of shopping, eating and showing off Greyhounds!! You can eat at Moore’s Store (and listen to music) and the Forge Bar and Grill; shop at the Secret Garden, American Emporium,  Gum Creek Mercantile and Harrison & Son Knifesmith, have a snack at Scoots N Scoops (ice cream parlor and motorcycle shop), and wander through art galleries, Walking Horse Gallery  and  the Fly Fishing Gallery. There should be lots of outside seating and places to hang out. 

 

Hopefully by mid-October, the weather will be cool. It sounds like a greyt day to make new friends and introduce East Texas to the wonderful world of Greyhounds. We will also meet up with TAGS alumni, Pippi and Gatsby, and the McGee family.

Prior Events:

 Monday, May 30, 2011 ~ An early morning walk at Hall Office Park in Frisco was a perfect way to start celebrating Memorial Day with the Greyhounds 

  • Sunday, May 15, 2011 ~ An Afternoon at the Beach – Paw Beach Resort   

 On Sunday, May 15, 2011, it was a sunny, breezy afternoon when all the Greyhounds ran free (well, not really “free” but in a large fenced area at Paw Beach Resort).  They ran, they played, they chased Flower (who chased the ball), they splashed the water (and ultimately turned it over), and they found a place to lay in the shade.  Thanks to Paw Beach for inviting TAGS and its Greyhound friends for an afternoon of fun.  After a rest, the Greyhounds can’t wait to do it again.  We’ll let you know when and where. 

  •  Saturday, April 23, 2011 - DFW Basenji Club - Lure Coursing

The DFW Basenji Club hosted their annual Spring Fun Run Lure Coursing for all sight hounds at the Haggard’s Corner Creek Farm in Celina, TX. Thanks to Deann and Sam Haggard for opening their home to all the people and dogs. Some hounds were in it to win it, some were just there to have fun.  Even some puppies got to try their skill at lure coursing.
  • Saturday & Sunday, April 9 & 10 - 2011 Dallas Auto Show
Dallas Convention Center, 650 S. Griffin Street, Dallas, TX
The weekend at the 2011 Dallas Auto Show was a successful event for TAGS. There were almost as many people looking at Greyhounds as looking at cars (both are fast, of course).  The Greyhounds appreciated the TAGS volunteers telling the public about them so they could save their energy and barks and snooze the afternoons away. Many more people are aware of the wonders of Greyhounds after this greyt event.

Pooch and Pals – Family Pet Care, 1501 Handley Drive, Fort Worth, TX - Saturday, April 2, 2011 from 10 am to 3 pm

TAGS joined the fun at the Pooch and Pals event sponsored by Cowtown Loves Animal Shelter Pets (CLASP).
TAGS at Whole Foods on Saturday,
March 19, 2011
 was a success.  In addition to receiving an adoption
application, the TAGS Adoptable Greyhounds were joined by friends, Wiki, Ringo and Luke, to greet all the people who wanted to pet the dogs and receive information about Greyhounds.  

Saturday, March 5, 2011, turned out to be a rather chilly, windy day, so lots of people decided to shop inside at Frisco Mercantile.  They were delighted to see the TAGS Greyhounds as soon as they came in the front door.  Standing calmly to be petted for two hours is hard work.  Milady, the donation dog for the day, decided she would rest while Bear, Wray and visitor, Wiki, remained standing, hoping for more attention.  When you are at Frisco Mercantile, visit the TAGS merchandise booth (even if the Greyhounds are not there that day).

  • Saturday & Sunday, February 19 & 20 - Collin County Home & Garden Show
These were perfect days for TAGS and the Greyhounds to visit with all the people looking for spring and summer gardening ideas.  Based on the number of people who stopped by, the event was a huge success.  The public was very generous with its donations which makes the Greyhounds happy!!  TAGS hopes to participate again next year!!  Check out the greyt photos.  

  • Saturday & Sunday, February 5 & 6 - Dallas Winter Boat Show:
Many people had cabin fever after the blast of winter weather in Dallas and could not wait to do something fun.  The Dallas Boat Show on February 5 and 6, 2011, was just the ticket.

TAGS volunteers and the TAGS Adoptable Greyhounds plus many owner Greyhounds met the public and paid no attention to the weather.  All the dogs were more than willing to get petted, receive hugs and collect needed donations from the generous show guests. Many people say they look forward to seeing the Greyhounds at each Boat Show.  They even noticed that TAGS was in a different location.  Thanks to all the TAGS volunteers who braved the weather and helped spread the word about Greyhounds.

  • Saturday, January 8, 2011 - New Beginnings:

“New Beginnings” can mean more than one thing.  On Saturday, January 8, 2011, it meant several things for TAGS. 


TAGS began its new meet and greet relationship with Half Price Books at Parker and Independence in Plano at a successful event.  TAGS’ volunteers Julie Lauderdale and Roxanne Littman brought their new Greyhound, Lexi, to visit.  TAGS’ new volunteer, Jack Mione, came for the first time (and hopefully many more times to come). 

 

And boys, Drew Cook and Skyler Yarborough, began giving to animal causes by donating approximately $45 to TAGS’ Greyhounds.  Drew and Skyler, after seeing TAGS’ Greyhounds at Pirate Days in October, collected money door-to-door to donate to the Greyhounds.  The boys were especially taken with Gigi.  On January 8, 2011 Drew's parents, Chris and Elaine Dillard, brought Drew and Skyler to the Half Price Book Meet and Greet to personally present the funds they raised for the Greyhounds to TAGS President, Kris Schuster.  They were greeted by all of the Adoptable Greyhounds, including Gigi.  Skyler and Drew enjoyed having their pictures made with Gigi and Wray.  They then made their way around and got to pet Luke and Sissy, too. The boys learned a lot about Greyhounds and the TAGS volunteers learned a lot about giving.  All of the Greyhounds will benefit from these children’s generosity.
