When:  Wednesday, February 21, 11:00 am - 11:30 am
Where:  Live on WGMD-FM (92.7 FM)
 
Ron and his trusty sidekick Rosie will take to the air once again to talk about what wonderful pets greyhounds are and how you can add one of these sweet dogs to your life.  Ron will debunk common myths like the one about greyhounds being "hyper" and needing lots of exercise.  In reality, these dogs sleep 16-18 hours a day, walk beautifully without pulling on a leash, and are very affectionate.  Don't believe us, show up at one of our in-person events and meet these awesome hounds.
