A Good Start to the New Year

Things have got off to a flying start this year with Kassie and Kevin in their new homes already and Bob going home this weekend.
It was good news for one of our longer stayers Lulu who was reserved today pending our usual home check.


Rupert

We have had news of Rupert. He is settling in very well with his family and he has even been to see us. He came and said hello to us all at the Bentley Fun Day and Dog show. Lovely outcome for this little darling.

Paddy / Daddy

Well, I have to admit that this update on Daddy, now known as Paddy, bought a tear to my eye. Paddy went home last Monday, and his new owners say:
Our major concern when choosing another greyhound was that we have 3 small terrier type dogs already and we didn’t want them to be upset by a newcomer. After looking on the Dillymore website we thought that Jack might be the one, as he was small. We brought our dogs along with us and Sue introduced Jack, a delightful dog, but much too bouncy for my dogs, one of which is nearly 16 years old. Sue and Avril both thought that Daddy would be more suitable. He totally ignored my dogs and when he did sniff Rosie, who is tiny, she growled at him and he immediately backed off. We had another visit the following day and this time walked the dogs together and then let them loose in the run. Daddy behaved perfectly. The photographs show how devoted Paddy has become to our dogs, and little Rosie snuggled up to him. We could not be more delighted with him and are so grateful to Sue for her excellent advice and for finding us the perfect dog.

Scarlet – home already!

Yesterday we posted that Scarlet was available for homing. Well, this is her today – she is now known as Meadow, has gone home with the lovely Wilf and his family, and is already making herself very much at home. Her new owner tells us that both dogs are currently sound asleep having enjoyed a race in the paddock and wagged themselves out!

Earl Goes Home

It was Earls turn to go to his forever home today. But he couldn’t go without saying goodbye to some of his favourite people. Earl is such a happy, loving bundle of fun we will all miss him. Good luck Earl, see you soon sweetheart.
