Day One at Morrisons

Thank you to the staff and customers of Morrisons in Little Clacton for making us welcome at the store for day one  our meet and greet sessions and for the generous donations totaling £91.51.  Kennel dog Yunny and retired dog Troy both did sterling work promoting greyhounds for the wonderful dogs they are.
We did a three hour session today.  Tomorrow we aim to be there from 10am until 2pm and we hope to be joined by kennel dogs Mickey and Sonny.

This was the first time Troy and Yunny had met.  They soon became firm friends.

Thank you Mandy

Many thanks to Mandy one of our kind supporters who recently celebrated a special birthday  In lieu of presents she asked for donations for two of her favourite charities.  We were one of them and are most grateful for the donation of £195.  Thanks Mandy from all at Greyhound Homer we hope you enjoyed your party.

Tombola

At a couple of our recent shows volunteer Angie has successfully run a Tombola stall which has proved popular and is a great way of raising much needed funds.  If you have any items you no longer need which you think might be suitable we would be very grateful for them.  If you could drop them at kennels, bring them to one of our walks or pop them to your nearest volunteer that would be much appreciated.  In the first instance please ring either Avril or Sue if you need to know where your nearest Volunteer can be found.  Thank you.

Manningtree Meet and Greet

Once again we were made very welcome on Manningtree Market when we held our meet and greet to celebrate National Greyhound Day on Saturday  Many thanks to Toni for giving us a pitch and to Stobbs Butchers for the bones which were gratefully received by our kennel dogs  Thanks also to everybody who stopped to chat and donated so generously  For more photos please visit our Facebook Page.

Oscar is hoping this is a winning pose

June did an outstanding job at her first event.  It was her birthday and we thank her for choosing to spend it promoting our hounds that are waiting for their forever homes

National Greyhound Day

We will be holding a meet and greet session on Manningtree Market tomorrow to celebrate National Greyhound Day.  We will be there between 8.30 and 12.30 so do come along and say hello.  If you have a greyhound why not bring him or her along, lets flood the town with our precious hounds.  The address is Brook Street Manningtree CO11 1DJ.

Ardleigh Car Boot Sale

We had lots of visitors to our stall when we did the Ardleigh car boot sale this morning. Trade really picked up when Arthur (who is now available again) and Charlie arrived. They are such friendly boys, eager to meet everybody. You would never have believed it was their first public appearance, we are so proud of them. We may have to do this sale again in the near future, it’s a great way to promote the dogs, literally thousands of people attend every week.

Alfie – Look out for Zues

It is with great sadness we have to tell you that after a short illness dear Alfie has had to be put to sleep.  Alfie came back to kennels last year after 3 and a half years in a loving home when his owner became too ill to look after him.  But following an appeal on here a new family came forward and took Alfie into their hearts and their home.  They are understandably devastated by their loss and our thoughts are with them.
Alfie was such a loving boy who craved affection.  He made friends easily and will be much missed by his family and his greyhound friend Poppy who he would chase after in the park most days.
Alfie your life may have been shorter than we all would have wished but it was a life surrounded by people who loved you very much.  We take much comfort from that. Sleep tight sweetheart you will never be forgotten.

Cuddly AlfieThis photo sums up Alfie the cuddle monster perfectly. He couldn’t have been more loved.
