We welcome back to the show Toni Duchi, Executive Director of Greyhounds in Gettysburg® (GiG) and President of Nittany Greyhounds.
Taking place in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania April 25–28, 2018, GiG is the largest greyhound gathering in the United States. In this episode, pull up a chair and listen in on a conversation with Toni Duchi. She shares all you need to know about the event, now in it’s 21st year. You’ll hear about vendors for an amazing greyhound shopping experience, educational seminars, social activities, and more! Thanks to the dedication of countless volunteers, GiG has become the largest greyhound reunion in the U.S., with more than 1,000 sighthounds and their people (from all over the world) arriving in historic Gettysburg.
If you’re like most greyhound folks, you’re a big fan of this episode’s guest, renowned cartoonist and humorist, Rich Skipworth. His recently published, first book, “Rich Skipworth’s Greyhound Glossary,” is now available, packaging hilarious cartoons paired with clever, and often newly coined, words that only greyhound enthusiasts immediately understand. Rich is also a generous supporter of, and advocate for, the adoption of former racing greyhounds.
Note: Since first dropping this episode, the sale of Rich Skipworth’s books through GFNJ to residents of the USA has ended, as has the wine label photo contest.
For residents of all countries, including the USA, purchase “Rich Skipworth’s Greyhound Glossary” while supplies last via eBay.

We all do it. That is, cleaning our dogs’ nose prints and smudges from our windows, mirrors, and other glass surfaces. Many people refer to this as their dogs’ “nose art.” In this episode, we speak with Missouri artist Nicole Peters. She created a unique way to capture this nose art that is not only stunning, but also a way to keep your greyhound’s art with you forever––even after you’ve taken out the glass cleaner.
Commissioning Nicole’s “Dog Knose Art” is surprisingly affordable. In this episode, we have a conversation with her about her technique and the greyhounds she fosters for Greyhound Pet Adoption in Springfield, Missouri.
Discover and order your very own piece of “Dog Knose Art.” Use code GFNJ25 at checkout and Nicole will donate 25% of your purchase price to help Greyhound Friends of New Jersey get more greyhounds to loving homes.
Be amazed when you view Nicole’s “Dog Knose Art” on her Facebook and Instagram feeds.
