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

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

Nice Weather for Ducks

What a soggy walk! Such a shame everywhere was flooded and we had to walk back the way we came. But it was nice to all be together and nothing gets us all talking like a bit of adverse weather!

Joining us on our walk was our new Volunteer Richard who walked Bobby. Welcome to the team Richard.

Thanks to everyone who came along, always a pleasure to see you and your lovely hounds. There are more photos on our Facebook page.

Sleep Tight Rebel

We have sad news to share today.

Rebel (Mountjoy Rebel) has crossed the Rainbow Bridge aged 12.

Rebel was born, raised, raced and retired from Dillymore and held a special place in the hearts of John, Deb and the team.

Rebels heartbroken owner say this about him.

“When I met him for the first time in 2014, John told me I would never find a better boy than Rebel – how right he was!

Rebel and I were together for nine wonderful years. The love of my life – he has left a massive hole in our family. Loved by everyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting him.

We are heartbroken and lost”.

Our hearts go out to Rebels family and friends and we thank them for making his retirement such a loving and happy one.

Sleep tight sweetheart, you will never be forgotten. XX

News of our Homed Hounds

We have had an update on three of our recently homed hounds Swift Onion, Boris (Flap jack)and Benji (Ballymac Slap up)

All are settling in really well.

Onion’s family have said

“She found the sofa!

Onion is settling in well. She is so well behaved and is well practiced at telling us she wants the back door open to go to the toilet! When she is not sleeping, she is charging around with her ball or pestering the kids for a cuddle! She walks really nicely on a lead and we are all enjoying having a Greyhound in our lives”

Farewell Stevie Wonder

Today Steve (Call me Steve) went off to his forever home.

Affectionately known as Stevie Wonder at kennels Steve was a real character who will be much missed.

We wish him well in this new chapter in his life.

He was sent on his way with much love from us all.
