Kathy Whyte's very first greyhound, Diogi aka 'Dee Dee', turned 13 on January 11th.

Dee is also called 'The Princess' and she completely plays the part.

She got to recieve warm wishes from many of her greyhound friends at the monthly meet and greet at Creature Comforts January 13th.

She wore her princess hat and graciously agreed to wear the orange 'Donation Dog' vest to accept donations from shoppers to benefit Monica's Heart Greyhound Adoption.

Foster dogs Leroy and Chrissy were also meeting and greeting, hoping to be adopted soon.

The next meet and greet is the first Saturday of February from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Central Tractor in Vestal followed by the Creature Comforts event from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the second Sunday of February.
