This time next week I will be packing my bags for Pensacola Beach, Florida!!!
It's that time of year for GPA-EC's Howlidays!  We are heading out a week early with Sadie and taking a vacation.  Since my sister moved to Georgia and her greyhound Boris passed away, she isn't going with me.  Instead, my husband is going!  This is his first official greyhound event.  I am hoping he will soon join the ranks with the rest of us!  We have had greyhounds for almost 10 years now and he always has something going on and can't go.

It will be a bit odd with only Sadie.  I am hoping she will enjoy being an only child for a while.  We are looking for dog friendly activities.  I can't wait to feel the sand between my toes!

It's about that time again.  Time for the Howliday event put on by GPA Emerald Coast.  In the past my sister and I have attended this event together.  However, with her move to Georgia and the passing of her greyhound, she won't be going with me this year. 

Since we haven't had a real vacation since Maui, Sadie and I talked hubs into tagging along.  We will be staying the entire week and this will be his first ever greyhound event.  He normally isn't available in the fall to go to the events that I like to go to.  I really am glad I don't have to make the 9 hour drive by myself.  I'm afraid my co-pilot Sadie wouldn't be very good at keeping me awake!
Sadie is tired of being cold.  We are ready to visit the Sunshine State, soak up some rays, walk along the beach and have some fun!

Any of my friends that have travelled with their hounds have any tips please feel free to leave me a comment.  You can also e-mail me at  This is our first real vacation with a hound in tow.  I have already started making my list!
