It is with regret that due to the hot weather we have decided to cancel our attendance at the Blue Cross open day. The event itself is still going ahead, we wish then every success but as always the welfare of our dogs must come first. We will however go ahead with the Stutton / Alton Water picnic because we have hired the hall so the dogs don’t need to be outside. We can each take a view on the day regarding actually walking.
Huge thanks to Chris Waters for organising another fundraising golf day at Brett Vale Golf Club on 22nd September. Non-golfers are also welcome for BBQ and music in splendid surroundings. See our events page for full details.

For anybody planning to attend this year’s Suffolk Dog Day, on Sunday (29th July), the organisers have taken the very sensible decision to cancel it for this year due to concerns about ongoing high temperatures. Thank you to all concerned for putting our beloved dogs’ safety first and foremost. Here’s their message posted on social media:
“Dear Woofers, some really sad news about Suffolk Dog Day 2018. I’m afraid due to considerable concerns for everyone’s safety in these prolonged hot and dry conditions we have reached the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s event. This is the first time this has ever happened. We know you will understand that we always put you and your dogs safety first as we have today. Finally, just two things from us. Please please can you help us spread the word about this sad news and please do come and join us at Helmingham Hall next year for the best, biggest and safest Suffolk Dog Day ever. Thank you everyone and we look forward to seeing you and your gorgeous dogs very soon.”

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!

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!
