A ❣SPECIAL THANK YOU❣ to Justin Dannenbring, Vickie Bellitto and Jennie Skoglund for setting up the GoFundMe page. The out pouring of generosity, prayers, thoughts and well wishers from CCA, the Coursing community and friends,,,,,was SO overwhelming❣ You have ALL Touched mine and Laci’s 🐕❤️Heart! With every thank you that I wrote, I had tears because, this moved me in a way that will stay with me forever.
Words can never be enough, to show how Truly BLESSED, I feel, to be a part of such a GR8 bunch of caring people❗️🐾
While I was at the Vets office from 11:30 PM to 4:00 AM with Laci, I was alone and not knowing if Laci would make it or not. I didn’t want to call anyone and wake them up so, I got on FB, Theresa Dannenbring, Denise Searcy and two other friends talked to me so I didn’t feel alone. Theresa even offered to drive from Menifee to Riverside to be with me at 2 AM. SO SWEET❣
Laci is doing so much better, she is still on some meds but, doing great. We will be scheduling some tests that the Vet has recommended, in the next month or two. She is now back to playing with Kito, regaining her strength and putting on some of the weight that she lost. Laci even got a short fun
run in today after coursing was over.
I am still in awe, from the overwhelming responses.
I am truly blessed with such GR8 friends🙏🏼💖
THANK YOU ALL❣ for your Love and support❣

To our friends at Southern California Coursing Club,
I write this with a full and heavy heart. After three years of coursing, running, eating and playing with you, Club Greyhound must pull up its stakes and move on.
Michael and I have been transferred back to Dallas. With any luck at all, Oracle Farm will be up and running soon, and I will be filling your news feeds with pictures and stories of puppies and greyhounds running in the fields.
The friendships and memories we have made will fill a lifetime.
Thanks to everyone that ran with us, lent us equipment, mourned Zone and Phil, drove me around until I realized you really can't be an Angeleno without a license or shared a hot dog (and forbidden beverages) with us. Your friendship and love are cherished memories.
Hopefully we will come back for the Turkey Run or the awarding of the Philly each year.
Happy New Year and Tally Ho ❤️
Love you all -
Ellen and Michael
2016 SoCal Cup Final Run
Italian Greyhound "Cyrus"
FC Hildidan's Mighty Magic Roarke SC
Owners: John & Jennie Skoglund
In May, a tour bus drove out the rutted Prado road bringing a crowd of young Japanese visitors. They watched hounds running on the course and enthusiastically met dogs and owners. Blueberry(Boo) and Curtis awed the crowd with her leaps into the sky. Puppies, Maybe and Flynn were the baby animals of the petting zoo. Phone cameras captured thousands of photos. Some English speakers were in the group but translation wasn't really necessary in our shared admiration of the hounds.
