Sincere apologies to anyone who missed out on the walk today. In my haste to add all of next years walks I accidentally deleted the details of our November walk. Avril.
Many thanks to the staff and customers of Tesco Martlesham for making us so welcome at our meet and greet session at the store on Friday and for the generous donations of £225.13.
Our Greyhound Ambassadors of whom there were many did a sterling job, the old paws showing newcomers Orla, Charlie and Higgins the ropes.
Kennel dogs Mindy and Switch behaved impeccably. Fingers crossed someone fell in love with them and will offer them a loving home.

We are pleased to announce the reopening of the Greyhound Trust Suffolk branch. We hope to have our website up and running shortly but in the meantime for details of our dogs looking for their forever homes please click on their photographs or refer to the National website www.greyhoundtrust.org.uk.
The A12will be closed at Capel St Mary in cluding outside of Dillymore from 9pm Friday 22nd May until Monday morning. If you were planning to visit kennels please rearrange.
Occasionally some of our dogs need a little help understanding good dog manners in certain situations and around other breeds of dog. Sometimes they quite simply lack confidence in the outside world. Sometimes it’s a mixture of all of these things.This has been the case with Daphne (Olddavey’s Lady) and Mac (Droopy’s Mac).
Yesterday to help them on their way to finding their forever homes they attended a doggie workshop with behaviorist Pat of Mills Mutts
.It was such a worthwhile experience for them. Both were far less reactive by the end of day. Daphne walked beautifully past Inca the Visla and Mac gained so much confidence that by the end of the day he no longer felt the need to attach himself like Velcro to his Volunteer Barbara’s leg.
We know there is still work to be done but we are immensely proud of the progress they made and are confident that with an experienced owner or someone who is happy to work with them, both will make lovely pets. They are such affectionate little souls we hope they each have their chance very soon.
Charlie (pictured), T.J, Daphne, Master, Mac, Finlay, George, Kieran and Jimbob wish you all a very Merry Christmas and they thank from the bottom of their great big hearts for all of the wonderful gifts you have sent them.
You have really made their Christmas Day and they will be enjoying some of their lovely treats well into the New Year.
All at Greyhound Trust Suffolk would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for the support you give us not just at Christmas but throughout the year, for following our page and most importantly for the kindness and support you show to one another via our Facebook page when one of our beautiful hounds crosses the bridge.
What a lovely community.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Going on holiday? Weekend away? or maybe just a day out? Perhaps you would like your Greyhound to be looked after in the comfort of another Greyhound family home.

Many thanks to Lauren and all at Jimmy’s Farm who made us so welcome when we visited yesterday and to those who stopped to say hello.
Kennel dog Dillymore Jack came along and behaved extremely well enjoying so much love and attention as well as a bag of Quavers!
