What a sad year this is turning out to be. Yet again we have to give you heartbreaking news about one of our precious hounds. Dudley’s Spark was taken far to soon on 24th June just 12 days after his 8th birthday. His family are truly heartbroken. This is what they have said about him “Duds as we affectionately called him loved his toys, his chewies and us, his family. He was a real Mummy’s boy who would look deep into her eyes as if he where looking into her very soul. We are missing him so much and we just can’t stop the tears from falling”
Run free from pain at the bridge dear Dudley and know your family’s love for you will remain in their hearts forever.
We had a real treat today when recently homed Jon Star (now called Blue) came to see us for a pedicure. He was so excited to see everyone it made our day. Old habits die hard because he headed straight for the shed where he clearly remembered is where we keep the treat jar! Bless his little heart.
We can hardly believe we are having to write this. Our friend and Volunteer Angie has had to have her dear Alex put to sleep today after she was diagnosed with cancer. This comes barely 6 weeks after Angie had to say goodbye to Alex’s brother Troy. It’s tragic and our hearts go out to her. Alex was a sweet natured girl, not quite as outgoing as Troy and while he attended many shows and events Alex much preferred the comfort of her own home and family. Alex and Troy were so close and Alex would wash Troy’s ears for him. The only comfort to be had is that these two beautiful babies are back in each others arms and are reunited with their Dad Johnnie who absolutely adored them both, they were a great source of comfort to him when he was so gravely ill. Dear Angie what can we say? We are truly sorry for your losses but your beautiful hounds could not have been more loved by you and we thank you for the wonderful life you gave them. xx
It is with much sadness we have to tell you that Lucky one of our longest serving Greyhound Ambassadors has passed away. Dear Lucky was such a sweet boy who worked tirelessly at shows and meet and greet sessions to promote greyhounds as pets. Lucky was also a Pets as Therapy dog who along with his best friend Flossy regularly visited local care homes. Below is his family’s tribute to him. Our first greyhound and we could not have wished for a more loyal, loving and sweet companion. Although very upset we feel so very fortunate to have had this sweet lad share his life with us and for him to live to a good age. Sleep tight sweetheart. xx Our hearts go out to Bryan, Gill and Flossy, they are very much in our thoughts. May you always shine high and bright in the sky Lucky like the star that you were. You were a true Gentleman of a dog and we will all miss you so much.xxx Lucky June 1st 2008 to June1st 2020
Good luck to Charlie and Becky who both went to their forever homes this weekend. Charlie has gone home with our friend and Volunteer Angie who lost her dear Troy just weeks ago. Troy’s Sister Alex had been so down since losing Troy but perked up no end when she met Charlie. Becky is going to join the country set! She is going to have a garden with acres of space and lots of country walks. Much love to them both xx
