A date for your diary - Great British Greyhound Walk

Now, I know it may seem a bit early to be planning for next June,'s a date for your diary, calendar, or that sticky bit of paper next to the phone depending on how organised you are.

Sunday June 26, 2011, is the date of the second-ever Great British Greyhound Walk!

The FIRST Great British Greyhound Walk happened on 20 June this year and an impressive 1,641 dogs (all greyhounds or lurchers only) went walking with their people in 44 different locations at the same time.

The target for 2011 is to have 2,011 greyhounds taking part! Or even more if they can manage it.

Now the point of giving this an early mention is because if YOU already run greyhound walks (where owners can meet and socialise and raise awareness of the need for more families for greyhounds) you can get it registered as part of the Great British Greyhound Walk.

Visit the main website for the event here, and you can also "Like" their page on Facebook.

Let's smash that 2,011 target!

I'm ready for my walk

I hope you top your goal! We're in the States, so I'm not sure we're much help.
