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.
We have some updates on our recently homed hounds. All have settled well in their new homes.Lovely to hear from you Ed, Jack and Blink.
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.
Today it was the turn of lovely Ed to go home. He is off to live with another two greyhounds. Ed you are such a happy little soul we shall miss your cheeky little face at kennels but we wish you well sweetheart. Much love xxxx
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!
This has made our weekend! Just hours after going home here is Seb having a snooze in a sun puddle with his new toy. Bless him.
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.
Yesterday we said a fond farewell to Dopey and Jon. Happy New Year boys and a happy retirement to you both. Enjoy your new lives.
Well done to Gracie (Racing name Halls of Gold) she has won a photographic competition. Her owner is on a wining streak because last year Gracie’s friend Albie won the same competition with a photograph taken by him.
Great news for Mickey, he went off to start his new life today in his forever home. Good luck Mickey you are such a sweetheart have a lovely life.
Jon thought all his Christmas’s had come at once when he was given the good news that his new family had passed the home check and that he would be going home in between Christmas and New Year. He is looking forward to the weekend because they are coming to visit him again.
