I just want to let everyone know that registration for Greyhounds Rock Fredericksburg is now open for our 2011 fundraiser ‘Take a Bite Out of Canine Cancer’ benefiting the Ohio State University's Greyhound Health & Wellness Program. It will take place November 12-13, 2011 at the Hospitality House Hotel & Conference Center in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Once again, we are privileged to have Dr. Couto as our guest of honor at this event.

We are also very excited to announce that we have two nationally known celebrities speaking during our weekend event. Sheryl Mathys, author, trainer Sirius radio show host and featured dog trainer on TV's Animal Planet network, will be our keynote speaker at the Sunday Brunch. The 1st 150 attendees to register will receive tickets to Sunday's brunch and a copy of Sheryl Mathys' book: Leashes and Lovers.

Our speaker at the Dessert Party on Saturday night will be trainer and star of Animal Planet's TV show It's Me or the Dog, Victoria Stilwell. Attendance is strictly limited to 300 people, so we encourage registering early.

In addition to the Dessert Party on Saturday evening and Sunday Brunch, the weekend activities will include companion animal related vending on Saturday and Sunday, a Silent Auction, Educational Seminars, Blessing of the Hounds, Professional photography by Jim Poor and much, much more! Well behaved dogs are welcomed at all of the planned activities!

Greyhounds Rock is a 501©3 non-profit, all volunteer organization. For more information on this event, hotel information and how to register, please visit our web site at www.greyhoundsrock.org.

Thank you I hope we see you in Fredericksburg in November!

Saw Dr. Couto at Sandy Paws a few years back. He is awesome.
