#23 – Wynnum Greys

 

August 18, 2017

This week we cover a community group, the Wynnum Manly Greyhound Owners.  We are very much dog lovers in our family, but our 4 legged family members have been labradors.  I haven’t had much experience with greyhounds, well except for the time our neighbour was fostering Tony, who had a great nature, and I thought where did I get the stereotype that they weren’t great pets?

I must say that they have a beautiful demeanour, and they loved the attention and pats that I was enforcing on them at last Sunday’s meetup.

Megan from the group contacted me to see if I could meet up and cover one of their monthly get togethers.  It was fantastic to see around 50 dogs, behaving so well together and their owners sharing a common bond.  You can visit their facebook page here.  Last Sunday’s walk went from the bandstand park to Manly and back, and didn’t the Brisbane winter put on a show!

Friendly and good natured greys

I asked Megan the regulation questions below.

What brought you to the area?

We were looking for a block of land and we had seen a block of land online. Wynnum wasn’t on our radar though we thought we would go for a drive and take a look. We fell in love with the place instantly.

 

Do you have any interesting or memorable experiences in Wynnum that you would like to share?

I certainly have to say 50 greyhounds walking along the esplanade 🙂

 

What would you love to see in Wynnum?

I think it is beautiful the way it is though I would like to see a few more BBQ’s and shade gazebos along the waterfront and a pool like Southbank.

Quite a spectacle seeing the group enjoying the waterfront

Any link to a website that you would like to share?

Thanks for letting me come and meet the crew (and their owners)!
