It's a dog's life, and Shiloh and Lightfoot—a pair of rescued greyhounds owned by Linda Davis-Wallen '75—seem to be well aware of the perks of their class. The duo managed to leverage their celebrity as Moravian mascots to be featured in a seven-page cover story in the fall issue of Celebrating Greyhounds magazine. The article, "Big Dog on Campus—the Greyhound as College Mascot," highlights the history of the greyhound mascot tradition at Moravian and Loyola Colleges.
Marty Moyle, secretary for the Moravian athletics department, and Davis-Wallen were interviewed for the piece. "They take things like this in stride," commented Marty, with a laugh, when asked about the dogs' reaction to the publicity. "They're happy to promote greyhound rescue, and they love to represent Moravian College. But they try not to let it go to their heads, because there's always more work to do."
Shiloh, Lightfoot and other furry friends will participate in a "meet and greet" at the Moravian women's basketball game December 12, Take a Kid to the Game Day. Children 13 and under will be admitted free, and the animals will be available for up close and personal interviews. The game starts at 7 p.m. Proceeds benefit First State Greyhound Rescue.
