Greyhound Walks Show

Great Notley Country Park, Braintree, Essex, CM77 7FS
Sunday 11th August 10am to 4pm.

Tomorrow we will be at the Greyhound Walks Show. There will be a fun dog show with numerous classes and lots of things to buy for you and your precious hounds.

Two’s Company

We have three new arrivals this week. Lulu, Lucy and Denozo. Little smashers all three but Lucy and Denozo have been best friends and kennel buddies at their racing kennel and if at all possible we would like to home them together. If you have room in your heart and on your sofa to take a pair please consider them.

Evening Walk

Not quite as hot as predicted for our evening walk, and with plenty of water, cold towels and cool coats we had an enjoyable walk along the marina and through the village of Shotley Many thanks to The Shipwreck for making us welcome and to those who came along.

Shotley Walk

SHOTLEY WALK. Temperatures are predicted to be 25 degrees at 7pm on Friday evening for our walk and are only expected to drop to 22 degrees by the end of the walk. This is still mightily hot! Avril will be at the meeting point in case anybody wants to go ahead but her dog Fox will not be with her. We are loathe to cancel the walk entirely or change the start time in case not all those intending to come see a cancellation post. If it does by some miracle cool down considerably we will be pleased to see you.

A Tribute to Jenny

It is with much sadness we have to tell you that Jenny (Racing name Burgess Borna) has passed away.  Jenny was a real kennel favourite having spent much of her racing career at Dillymore.  She was much loved by all who knew her.  We will always be thankful for the wonderful retirement Jenny’s family gave her.

This is their beautiful tribute to her.

“We cannot express our heartbreak at the loss of our darling Jenny.  Jenny was  quite simply a beautiful soul, such a calm, kind and gentle girl who slotted into our family as if she’d always been there.  She adored our long walks together but was just as happy roaching on the sofa or doing quirky things to make us smile!  As long as she was with us, she was happy…and so were we.  Jenny, you taught us all so much about love, kindness and laughter, and we are devastated that our time sharing your well-deserved retirement was cut so short. Your loss leaves a void that will be absolutely impossible to fill.”

Through eyes filled with tears and hearts heavy with sadness we all send you our love Jenny.  May your beautiful soul fly free sweetheart you will never be forgotten by all those that knew and loved you. xxxxx
