Calgary Greyhound Walk – Mother’s Day 2023

Edworthy Park - Starting Near Angel Cafe 4105 Montgomery View Northwest, Calgary

Mother's Day Greyhound Walk Hello Everyone! The Calgary Greyhound walking club likes to acknowledge special days (and holidays) throughout the year by getting out on parade with our hounds for some exercise as well as celebration! The Easter weekend group walk was lovely with a fantastic turn out in North Glenmore Park. Lots of new and familiar faces in the crowd. A warm welcome to the new walkers including a couple who joined us to learn about what it is like to adopt a greyhound and one first timer... a lurcher named Boots. He and his family, are recent immigrants to Calgary from England. We all had a good walk and the hounds enjoyed their holiday treat bags. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 14th. Time to head out again as a group to celebrate! We will walk in Edworthy Park NW at 10 am to try to beat the expected heat on that day. We are not sure if we have any greyhound brood Mums in our walking club these days but if your greyt girl has been a Mum, let us know on Sunday! The walk starts in the parking lot near Angel's Cafe - close to the […]

Calgary Greyhound Walk – Easter 2023

North Glenmore Park - Parking Area "F" North Glenmore Park, Calgary

Easter Walk Hello Everyone! It has been a long time since the walking club has been out together! Thanks to the wonderful group that came out to Bowness Park NW last October to celebrate Halloween! What fun! We had some amazing costumes to enjoy on some of the hounds and their humans. The winter has been long, cold and snowy but we are optimistic that spring has finally arrived and not just on the calendar! Most of the paved park paths are now ice free. Let’s get out for a stretch with the group again! This time, we will head to the SW and into North Glenmore Park on Saturday, April 8th at noon. We will meet in parking lot F. Because this is the Easter weekend, we realize many will have family plans on Sunday so please note the switch to Saturday instead of our traditional Sunday morning walks. There will be post walk treats for our hounds and possibly an Easter bonnet (and bunny) or two will be spotted in the crowd! Hope to see you there! ---------------------------------------------------------- DATE & TIME: Saturday, April 8, 2023 @ NOON LOCATION: North Glenmore Park - Parking Area "F" (South end of […]

Great Global Greyhound Walk

Edworthy Park - Starting Near Angel Cafe 4105 Montgomery View Northwest, Calgary

Great Global Greyhound Walk Hello Everyone! Our last group get together was on a hot Canada Day in South Glenmore park - almost 3 months ago! What a wonderful group we had for our walk, celebration and refreshments! The ensuing summer was very warm and its been a challenge to find a good time for another group gathering... Sunday, September 25 looks like a greyt opportunity! It is also the beginning of autumn so a cooler time of year to get out with our hounds and friends again. September 25 is also the annual Great Global Greyhound Walk for 2022! The Great Global Greyhound Walk started in Britain in an effort to bring awareness of greyhounds (and their sight-hound cousins) as pets, to the public. Here is some further information on the history of the GGGW: The Calgary Greyhound Walking Club will meet on Sunday, September 25 at 11:00 AM in Edworthy Park NW. Please join us if you can! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The walk starts in the parking lot near Angel's Cafe - close to the intersection of Bowness Road and Shaganappi Trail NW.
