But this year, the planets aligned, both Jeff and I were able to get time off, and everything else seemed to fall into place. We've booked our hotel room, made arrangements to have my mom-in-law look in on the cats, and are (more or less) prepared for a drive across Pennsylvania with two dogs in the car. And now it's just two weeks away!
We realized after looking at Maera's paperwork that her vaccinations were going to come due this month, so we took her in to the vet last week to get her up-to-date. Always a good thing to have everything current when going to an event where there are going to be numerous dogs!
So... greyhound people. Are you going? Anyone care to meet up? I will never find you in the crowd if we don't make prior arrangements, so thought I would at least put that out there!
Maera MIGHT have to wear a red bandana, which is the event's way of notifying others that the dog is shy, and that people need to give her space. I really think she'll do OK. We actually took her to her first meet & greet yesterday, and she did great. She still tucks her tail when meeting new people, but will still come up for petting, and those that were patient enough to stay around for a few minutes while ignoring her tended to get kisses from her when she was able to work up her courage. But we're bringing a bandana for her anyway, in case it's all just too much.
