 Grapehounds T-Shirt 

We will have a new T-shirt for 2019.  Last year's shirt had our logo and the words, "I rescue hounds on the front.   On the back it said, "I also rescue wine when I find it trapped in a bottle."


We also have a nice selection of embroidered polo shirts which are very sharp looking for dinner out in the summer time.  



"Adopt a Greyhound" Cap

We have a new universal baseball cap,

designed by Kent Roberts.  We think this

is the coolest greyhound cap around!  

These also can be purchased in our 

Grapehound Wine Tour® online store.

Send us your photos from Grapehounds!

Cheers from Kay Boniface as she relaxes at the new Boundary Breaks winery with her three hounds, Sabrina, Dakota and Geyser.  Boundary Breaks is not far from our main location in Ovid.

Tracy Leach sent us photos of her two pups, Chelsea and Bart, checking out Seneca Lake.

This is Gary at Atwater Vineyards, owned by Amanda and Noel Catti.  I know what you mean, Gary:  I saw a lot of humans looking at those Atwater wines with their tongues hanging out too!

Bille Axell photography took this special photo of Stephanie and Ron Miles' two hounds, Daisy Mae and Kenny, as Kenny was getting to know his biological brother.  A special moment on Seneca Lake!

The Little Red Wagon is back! The Little Red Wagon will be providing delicious entrees for our event at our host winery this year.  They do a lot of  dietetic or veggie options for those of you who like salads or wraps and not the traditional hamburger and fries fare.  But they have that too!

​​​Seresto Collars  

We unequivocally recommend Seresto collars for flea and tick protection for greyhounds and other sighthounds.  We have used them for two consecutive years ion four greyhounds and we have not seen a tick.  Our dogs h walk in tall grasses and deep woods on our six acres, and we have not seen a tick, despite a heavy tick presence.  These collars are non- irritating to our dogs' skin and we love the fact that they are an external tick control, not a  systemic  treatment.   Nothing has controlled ticks on our dogs like these Seresto collars.  You won't believe their efficacy!  Plus, they last eight months!    Put them on and forget it!
