Huge thanks to walk leader Mark and to the warden, Chris, for making today’s walk possible. A crisp, bright day saw 75 greyhounds/lurchers and 6 of their canine friends walk around the nature reserve. Thanks to all the well behaved hounds and owners for your company, we hope you enjoyed as much as we did. You can see more photos on our facebook page.
Kennel dog Keith enjoyed his morning out from kennels – does anybody have room on their sofas for this handsome fella?
You might notice some changes to the website. In line with national re-branding of the Retired Greyhound Trust to the Greyhound Trust, we are now known as Greyhound Trust Suffolk. Rest assured, behind the scenes we are the same people working for the same outcomes – to provide bright futures and loving homes for greyhounds.
This is Jade … we didn’t even get the chance to put her on our homing pages before she was reserved. She went home on Saturday and her new family is delighted with her. They say she is a “such a beautiful calm girl. She has already been to the beach and park and loved both.”
Be happy, gorgeous girl!
Well, what a day we’ve had at the Suffolk Dog Day! Oliver was reserved, Force, Nick and Pearl had a great day out, we were inundated with visits from old and new friends, and there was a huge turnout for a parade of greyhounds to end the day. Thank you to all who visited – we hope you had as good a day as we did!
Check our facebook page for plenty more photos.
On Sunday, 30th July we will have a stall at the Suffolk Dog Day at Helmingham Hall. We are especially excited about the show this year, as greyhounds won a poll of the county’s favourite breed of dog, and there will be a parade of greyhounds in the main ring at 3:55. Please do come along and show off your gorgeous greyhounds, we’re sure it will be quite a sight!
Huge thanks to Chris Waters (seen here in his BBQ chef apron) for organising another golf day at Brett Vale Golf Club. Teams of four played golf during the day, followed by a BBQ and music back at the club in the evening. Swift Keith and Jenny, along with homed greyhounds Fox and Wolfie also went along to show how fabulous greyhounds are and enjoyed the sausages too.
A fantastic £3,600 was raised.
Check out Force, Nick and Oliver, just added to the website today.
Calling golfers – there will be another golf day at Brett Vale Golf Club. Last year’s event raised well over £3,300 for Greyhound Homer Suffolk. For the non-golfers you can come along and support the entertainment – BBQ and disco – in the evening.
Yunny had many admirers when he was promoting greyhounds as pets at Morrisons at Little Clacton last week. Today he was reserved as a direct result! Be happy fella, and thanks again to the wonderful people there for making this happen.
In other news, I’d been taking care of Wally as he recovered from having a toe amputated. The inevitable happened, I fell for this lovely boy and his fantastic nature, so he’s staying with me and his extremely ancient new sister Maggie.
