A busy weekend at kennels. We were visited by Toosie Beannie and My Mate Max who came to have their nails clipped. Blink who was reserved on Thursday had a visit from his new family and Cookie was given the good news that she has been reserved subject to a home check. On top of all that we welcomed Des (Romeo Desperado) to our happy band of retired dogs and Sam went off to start his new life with his forever family.
Go to our homeless-hounds page to meet Des, our latest boy looking for his forever home.
Yesterday we bid a fond farewell to Conrad. He was an absolute pleasure to have here at kennels and we wish him well in his new role as a much loved family pet.
Due to the bad weather forecast for the weekend the organisers of the Boxford Dog Show have taken the wise but regrettable decision to cancel the dog show due to be held on Sunday. They hope to be in touch with a revised date shortly.
We have had news of Caesar (Oakfield Caesar). He has recently been on holiday and had a fabulous time on the beach. He bumped into another of our recently homed hounds Nemo (Droopys Opah) Happy to say both boys are enjoying a very happy retirement.
We hope this may be of interest to you, our supporters. Dominica Yannaghas is an artist based in Hadleigh Suffolk. There will be an exhibition of her hound and Galgos paintings in Felixstowe throughout the month of October (Please see details on the poster). Dominica has kindly offered us a donation in return for us advertising her exhibition.
This week we have welcomed Grace, Flo, Revie. The Doctor,Cookie and Blink to our happy band of homeless hounds waiting for their forever homes. We are a little sad for Revie, Flo and Grace who have sadly had to be returned to kennels following either a change in family circumstances or the failing health of their owner. Please take a look at them all on our homeless-hounds page.
We have been invited to parade our greyhounds in the ring at the Countryside and Falconry Show, Stonham Barns at 2pm this coming Saturday. We won’t have a stand but it would be great if we could flood the show with greyhounds and spread the word. Details in What’s on section
Yesterday we bid a fond farewell to the lovely Jet. Jet has waited a while but you can never wait too long for a good thing! We will miss our snugggles with him but we sent him on his way with much love from us all. Be happy sweetheart. xx
We had a busy time at the Bentley fun day today where we ran the Dog Show. Some absolutely stunning dogs took part and were all so well behaved they are a credit to their owners. Many thanks to Judge Julie who had the unenviable job of picking the winners! Kennel dogs Casey and Bambi came along and were amazing, future greyhound ambassadors in the making.
