Farewell Film Star

Yesterday we said farewell to Film Star. He has really fallen on his 4 paws. He has gone to live with a family who sadly lost their dogs Bonnie ans Storm within weeks of each other.This lovely lad is sure to mend their broken hearts.

News of Joe

We have had news of Joe (Private Joebies). All is going well and this is what his family say about him.”He has settled in so well; the runny poo was better the following day as you expected, he eats and drinks well, comes to all of us for lots of fuss and LOVES walks (certainly knows that when we go to the cupboard under the stairs, it means walkies).”So pleased Joe is happy and in a lovely home, he is a smashing lad.

Bye Bye Dosser

It may have been a grey and miserable day but nothing could dampen Whizzy Dosser’s spirits.This fun and bouncy boy went off to his forever home today. We wished him lots of luck and sent him on his way with so much love. Bless him.

New of Our Happily Homed Hounds

Here is an update on Obi (Young Minella). Here is just a part of the wonderful things his family say about him.”Obi continues to settle well as we get close to our 1st anniversary with him! Can’t believe it!! It’s gone so quickly yet it feels like we’ve loved him forever.We did a couple of days camping in Suffolk during the summer. Obi’s first camping experience was taken in his usual style….. as long as he was comfy and with us he was happy!He loves being cuddled so much and makes it very clear when he wants a cuddle, leaning into us and nuzzling his head into us.He is amazingly gentle and good tempered with my grandchildren and is brilliant with our 9yr old son Edward, always calm and gentle. Our son adores him.He behaves impeccably when out and about anywhere. With people and other dogs alike and we go on many walks with friends and their dogs.He brings us so much joy and I am constantly in awe of him and how he has transitioned from his racing days and being kennelled to living in a house with our family.Giving Obi his forever home is one of the best things I’ve done”.

We have had news of Indie (Fen View Indie). Here is what her owner has to say about her.”Indie is an absolute dream, she is so gentle and starting to settle in more and showing her cheeky personality. She knows the time I swear and wakes me for her breakfast at 6am every morning. She has made her bed/safe place on the landing but comes readily when I show her the lead. She’s enjoying our walks out in the Countryside and has made great friends with my friends lab/doddle. She’s still very wary of traffic and things she would not have seen, like the telly but considering it’s less than a month in she’s doing great.”.

Indie just chilling

We have news of Blanche, now called Jessie. Her owner says “This is Jessie with Mabel who lives next door. We often meet in the morning when out walking and they both lie down when we talk for too long! We alternate gardens with a weekly play date. She will sniff strangers hands on first meeting and now has about 6 people who she will let stroke her.She goes in for her spay tomorrow morning.I see Spot is still waiting – he seems a little like Jessie in temperament – whoever gets to take him home will be very fortunate. “Well done Jessie you have achieved so much since going home. Hope your op goes well. Maybe our Spot will be as lucky as you, do keep your paws crossed for him.xx

Yesterday we bid a fond farewell to Puma (Oakvale Puma). Puma was one of our longest stayers and we couldn’t be more pleased for this affectionate young man.Good luck Puma, we you will be much missed (Well maybe not your vocal chords). XXX

Paul Goes Home

It was Paul’s (Lotstoliveupto) lucky day yesterday when he went to his forever home. Paul who was terribly shy when he first arrived took to his new family straight away and walked quite happily with them, not something he normally does until he really gets to know you.
We are all so in love with Paul and wish him all the very best in his new home. See you soon sweetheart xx

Good Luck Buster

Good news for Buster (Swift Justify). He went home yesterday and seems to have settled in well already.Have a lovely retirement sweet pea. Lots of love from us all.xx

Spring Springs into Action

Our beautiful Greyhound Ambassador Spring put her calm nature and kind ways to good use when she meet up with Luka (Drumcrow Sherpa) for a confidence building walk in Mistley. Luka is a little worried by things outside of his comfort zone and so Spring’s owners offered Spring’s services. The walk went very well and Luka seemed to enjoy it and was more settled with Spring by his side. They are hoping to meet up again soon. Well done both and thank you to Spring’s owners for their kindness.
