TAGS Events - Meet & Greets: 

TAGS Adoptable Greyhounds will be at 

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:

Saturday and Sunday, September 13 and 14, 2014 - 2014 Fall Collin County Home and Garden Show – The weekend was a mild fall weekend to participate in TAGS’ first fall event of the year. It was another success for TAGS and the Greyhounds – Doug, Lacy and Rosie were big hits – hopefully someone who saw them would also apply to adopt them. Thanks to all the volunteers who were so helpful.  Everyone loves to talk about Greyhounds!!! See you at the Spring show.

Sunday, July 20, 2014 - TAGS’ enjoying the cooler weather this July at Hall Office Park in Frisco.  Great weather, fun walk, happy Greyhounds!

Monday, May 26, 2014 - TAGS’ Memorial Day Walk at Hall Office Park in Frisco: This event proceeded as planned even though the weather did not cooperate. We had to shorten the walk because of rain, but the dogs and Greyhound owners still had a good time. The dogs always enjoy meeting other dogs and getting lots of treats. The people were treated to homemade ginger snaps (Yum! – Thanks Gail). We’ll do it again before it gets too hot.

Sunday, May 4, 2014 - Coffee Paws Time at Starbucks: A hot Sunday afternoon found many TAGS Greyhound owners and friends at Starbucks on Preston at Frankford for a TAGS Coffee Paws event.  Watch the website and Facebook for the next one.  We hope to see you there. 

Saturday, April 5, 2014 - Frisco Mercantile: TAGS always has a big crowd at Frisco Mercantile – all adoptable dogs were there (Ellie, Maverick, Splash and Repo), many greyhound friends and shoppers galore.  

Saturday and Sunday, February 22 and 23, 2014 - Dallas 2014 Auto Show – TAGS was back at the annual DFW Auto Show at the Dallas Convention Center.  TAGS’ booth was across from the entrance to the main floor so all the dogs received lots of attention.  All of the TAGS dogs and many adopted TAGS dogs came to visit with all the people.  Thanks to all of the TAGS volunteers –two legged and four legged.

Saturday and Sunday, February 8 and 9, 2014 - Allen Home and Garden Show – TAGS’ Greyhounds were a popular attraction again at the Collin County Home & Garden Show in Allen, Texas. All of the TAGS volunteers educated the public about the wonders of owning a greyhound (or 2 or 3). Potential fosters and adopters asked many questions and had the opportunity for some hands-on time with Greyhounds. All of TAGS’ adoptable hounds (Tippi and Cruzer)  were there and all did well (including the more timid ones, Maverick and  Ellie). HGTV celebrity, Jeff Devlin, loved visiting with the dogs and had fun being photographed with them. We hope to see you at the Fall show.

Saturday, January 11, 2014 - Frisco Mercantile – What a way to start the new year!!!  TAGS adoptable Greyhounds and their many friends gathered at Frisco Mercantile to start the 2014 TAGS adoption year.  To get the ball rolling, this was Oakley’s (now Bowie)  adoption day.  Maverick is still’s getting used to meeting the public.  Sugar acted like a pro greeting everyone and receiving lots of attention.  The crowd kept growing as more people and Greyhounds arrived.  Everyone enjoyed the afternoon – Greyhounds, old friends and new friends.
