Thank you to the staff and customers of Morrisons in Little Clacton for making us welcome at the store for day one our meet and greet sessions and for the generous donations totaling £91.51. Kennel dog Yunny and retired dog Troy both did sterling work promoting greyhounds for the wonderful dogs they are.

This was the first time Troy and Yunny had met. They soon became firm friends.
Many thanks to Mandy one of our kind supporters who recently celebrated a special birthday In lieu of presents she asked for donations for two of her favourite charities. We were one of them and are most grateful for the donation of £195. Thanks Mandy from all at Greyhound Homer we hope you enjoyed your party.
At a couple of our recent shows volunteer Angie has successfully run a Tombola stall which has proved popular and is a great way of raising much needed funds. If you have any items you no longer need which you think might be suitable we would be very grateful for them. If you could drop them at kennels, bring them to one of our walks or pop them to your nearest volunteer that would be much appreciated. In the first instance please ring either Avril or Sue if you need to know where your nearest Volunteer can be found. Thank you.
Photos of our recently homed Dogs Heather (now Ruby) and Bing (now Bill). Both are settling in really well. Ruby and her new friend Jack are getting on well together and Bill has discovered the delights of sleeping on his owners bed! Think both are being spoiled rotten, just as they should be.

Today we have been walking in Woodbridge as part of the Great Global Greyhound Walk. We had 43 greyhounds and 6 of their companions on our walk and the running total for the number of dogs walking globally was 3,250 but there are still some results to come in.
Kennel dogs Sonny, Mickey and Bing came along as well as Bings kennel mate and special friend Toosie Beannie. A gret time was had by all. For a large selection of photos from today’s walk please visit our Facebook page.

We have had good news from recently homed Barney’s family.
He has settled very well and gets on with his new friend Cassie like a house on fire. They play together in the garden and curl up together for a snooze. Barney is eating well and has discovered the delights of a Tuna pasta bake. He has a big stuffed elephant that he tosses around the garden, well, that’s when he isn’t busy digging! Cheeky little monkey we are so pleased for him.
