Farewell Sweet Andy

We are so sad to post that Andy, Tyrur Andy has crossed the bridge.

Andy was such a Gentleman of a dog and our hearts go out to Andy’s family who loved him dearly.

Here is their lovely tribute to him:-

“We are so sad to say that dear Andy has passed away

He has been an absolute joy and a perfect companion for Kat in their years together.

Andy came to us as a quiet boy who liked to live under the stairs and blossomed into this adorable boy who loved his adventures with us. He has had so many lovely times. He was a popular boy in the local park, the people carrying treats were his favourites.

He had given all he could and life got achey and sore and tired for him.

Rest in peace our gorgeous loving boy Andy ❤️

Tyrur Andy 14.04.2011-4.12.2023″

We are so thankful that Andy and Kat had such an understanding family.

Run free dear Andy, hopefully with Kat who would have done her spinning act the moment she saw you at the bridge. xx

An Appeal for Storm

Sadly we are having to ask for your help in finding a home for Storm (Oh Darknstormy).
Unfortunately after several weeks in a home where he has settled well and been well behaved both indoors and when out on his walks his owner has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition meaning she is no longer able to walk Storm.
Sadly she has had to make the devastating but correct decision to return him.
Prior to going home Storm had shared his kennel with his brother Slammer (Oh Alabamslama) who we are also appealing for a home for although for a different reason. In the past Storm has also shared his kennel nicely with a girl.

An Appeal for Slammer

We are once again having to ask you to help us find a home for one of our little treasures.

Slammer (Oh alabamaslama) has been at kennels from a tiny puppy and throughout his racing career. He is the friendliest and most loving boy you could wish to meet.

However since retirement Slammer has recently been diagnosed with cataracts.

He has been to a specialist Vet who says they would not recommend any treatment at the moment and it is possible he may not in the future but of course the future is by no means certain and some may find his medical condition an issue when considering adopting a Greyhound.

Full details of his condition and the Veterinary advice given will be shared with anyone who adopts him.

Slammer really is a sweetheart who has in the past shared his kennel with his brother Storm (Oh Darknstormy) who is also subject to an appeal but for different reasons.

Our Annual Christmas Appeal

Joey (Mahogany Teidi) the self appointed spokesperson of the kennel block has asked very politely if any of you lovely people would like to help to fill their Christmas stockings this year.

He says all donations are gratefully received especially sardines, corned beef and absolutely all kinds of dog treats.

If you are able to help kennels are open every day or perhaps you could drop them off on our Boxing Day walk.

Many thanks in advance Joey and the gang.

Felixstowe Christmas Fair

Well done to our Volunteers for braving the elements at the Felixstowe light up and craft fair day today. Our trusty Greyhound Ambassadors were wrapped up well in their coats and snoods and in spite of the sub zero temperatures as always did us proud.

Thank you to Ali for the home made dog treats and to her Mum for the knitted snoods both of which sold well.

Quarterland Ruso

We have had news of the lovely Quarterland Ruso. He is known as Rudy and is now a sprightly 13 year old.

Today he has been closely supervising the carrot harvesting in the veg plot and has had Ostrich Steaks for his dinner. We think he looks fab in his puffa jacket style coat sourced from Aldi.

Thank you to Rudy’s family for the update.

Our Nacton Walk

A much nicer day for this months walk. Around 35 hounds joined us for a walk through Orwell Country Park and along Nacton Shore.

Thanks to all who attended, Barb and Gill for the photos and Pete for leading the walk.
Here are a few photos. There are many more on our Facebook page.

Good News for Danny

Fabulous news for one of our longest stayers. Dillymore Danny went home today. Danny has been with us since she was a tiny puppy, she is now four and a half and so as you can imagine she has been a huge part of our lives.

Danny sweetheart we will miss you but wish you all the luck in the world as you start this new chapter in your life. Be happy xxx


Sincere apologies to anyone who missed out on the walk today. In my haste to add all of next years walks I accidentally deleted the details of our November walk. Avril.

Good Luck Ellie

Good luck to Ellie (Baked Alaska) who went home yesterday.

Ellie had been with us since she was a tiny puppy and will be much missed but we wish her well in this exciting new chapter in her life.

Be happy sweetheart xx
