It’s been another busy week at kennels. Grace went home, Blue came back (he would prefer a family that doesn’t work full time) Chilli didn’t go home so is available again, Dear old Revie had a couple of viewers, Leo went for a walk at Alton Water and we held a meet and greet session at the Co-op in Hadleigh with kennel dogs Seb and Fabia. Both boys were so well behaved and made a good impression on local MP James Cartlidge who visited our stand. Thanks to our Greyhound Ambassadors Spring, Troy, Roy, Toby and Teddy, to the staff and management of the Co-op and to the generous public who gave donations and took the time to chat to us and our dogs.
