We have had news of recently homed Moses (Swift Monsoon). His family say he is settling in well, sleeping through the night and is enjoying his walks. He is still young and is into everything particularly shoes and slippers but they say he is great fun to be around.
What an absolutely fabulous day it turned out to be for Pablo (Chilli Escobar)! This morning he was taken for a walk from East Bergholt to Flatford Mill and back where he made friends with Effie the terrier and met some children.
After lunch he had some visitors at kennels who fell in love with him and have offered him his forever home. He goes home tomorrow!
We are over the moon for you sweetheart, you have waited a while. xx
Things have got off to a flying start this year with Kassie and Kevin in their new homes already and Bob going home this weekend.
It was good news for one of our longer stayers Lulu who was reserved today pending our usual home check.
71 Greyhounds and 6 of their companions joined us for our New Years Day walk in Stutton. Kennel dogs Lulu, Dave, Taylor and Mickey came along to. Many thanks to Pat and everyone who provided the refreshments, those who helped to set up and clear the hall and of course to everyone who joined us and made such generous donations.
A couple of photos from the Fort Landguard end a very soggy Boxing Day walk!. 65 greyhounds and their owners braved the elements, but not all made it to the end, and we don’t blame you at all! Kennel dogs Rambo, George and Moses joined us and of course behaved admirably. Thanks for all who made tea, coffee, sausage rolls and mince pies, they were much needed! Huge thanks to all at Fort Landguard for letting us use your facilities today, the shelter was very welcome.
The Santa sacks are in place and the hounds are waiting for the big fella dressed in Red to come along and fill them. We can’t wait to see their little faces. Thank you to all who donated money or treats.
Swifty and his owner would like to thank everyone who cared and shared his ‘missing’ post on our Facebook page, the person who found him, Dogs Lost, Eastgate Veterinary Practice, Cheryl Janssens and everybody who sent their best wishes. They are truly grateful.
URGENT! A black male Greyhound new to the area has slipped it’s collar and is loose in Barton Mills IP28 near the roundabout. Sketchy details at the moment but if spotted please call 07966691068. Thank you.
Update This afternoon he has been spotted near the picnic area close to MacDonalds in Barton Mills. Not yet caught but thankfully still alive!
Update Dog found safe and sound and his owner is on his way to collect him.
Rupert had an afternoon out and about in Felixstowe this afternoon. He helped his Volunteers Avril and Bryan to time the new route for our Boxing Day walk. We started at Mannings as usual but walked through Martello Park to to Languard Fort and back. On the day we will be stopping at the fort for refreshments. The walk took 1 hour in total. Anybody wanting to do a shorter walk may want to park in the Martello Park South car park (Manor Road) and join us there for the walk to the fort. Rupert behaved well on his walk, we wouild love him to find his forever home because he is now one of our longest stayers.
Please could you help to fill Bert and Rupert’s Santa Sacks? These two lovely boys would like nothing more than another shot at home life this Christmas but time is running out and so the next best thing on their wish list would be some lovely treats to share with their friends. They would be so grateful. Treats of all kinds from Sardines in oil to Gravy Bones would be very welcome. Thank you.
