Just the one new arrival this weekend. Meet the lovely Liaka. Just three years old (1st Sept) this tiny, calm little girl is an absolute delight. She walks beautifully on her lead and is happily sharing her kennel with her new friend Tony.
Russo received the best news ever today when he was told he had been offered a forever home. He will be staying with his Volunteer Michelle and her family while final arrangements are being made. We are over the moon for this lovely boy. Thank you to everyone who shared his appeal and sent him their good wishes.
We have four new greyhounds to introduce – Harry Brindle, Jerry and his sister Mindy. Sadly, Bosch was returned after failing to get on with the resident Westie so we’re hoping to find another home for him quickly. We would also have been introducing you to Pebbles, but she found a home before we even had time to add her to the website, be happy sweetheart!
We have had news of Rupert. He is settling in very well with his family and he has even been to see us. He came and said hello to us all at the Bentley Fun Day and Dog show. Lovely outcome for this little darling.
Great news for the lovely Leo who has been with us for the best part of a year. All of his dreams came true when he was taken home forever by his favourite Volunteer Terry. Leo loves Terry and has spent many a weekend with him while he has been waiting for that special someone. But his wait is over and he has joined Terry’s happy band of hounds Massey, Davey, Charlie and Rebel. We are so pleased for you Leo and we love you very much xxx
This weekend the lovely Rupert went home. You waited a while sweetheart but it was worth it. We will miss your sweet little personality around the place but we wish you every happiness. xx
Many thanks to our loyal volunteers and their wonderful Greyhound Ambassadors for coming along today. Our newest Ambassador Flo came 2nd in the Prettiest Bitch class. Recently homed Chico came second in the most handsome Dog class. Kennel dogs Tony and Ella had their first outing. Ella couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw dogs of all shapes and sizes. Tony had a wonderful surprise when his racing Daddy came along to spend time with him. Everyone was treated to freshly cooked chicken at lunchtime thanks to our friend Janis.
We are happy to report that Russo’s dental procedure went ahead successfully on Tuesday and he is now recovering in his Foster home.
Poor little fella had 22 teeth removed in total but in true laid back Russo fashion he has taken it all in his stride.
Russo has a check up next week and the week after he will be having the second part of his vaccinations.
We will be in touch with all of those who have kindly registered an interest in giving Russo a home as soon as he has been discharged from Veterinary care.
We have some updates on our recently homed hounds. All have settled well in their new homes.Lovely to hear from you Ed, Jack and Blink.
A very short walk in the baking heat, 10 minutes mostly in shade, followed by an indoor picnic in the community hall.
Kennel brothers Barry and Ben came along to say hello and enjoyed all the treats.
Hugest of thanks to Pat for the food, and to all who braved the heat, and for all your donations.
