This week whilst waiting for his forever home Master has been practicing living with a family and what can we say The main thing that we have had confirmed is what a fantastic boy he really is! He absolutely adores people, will always come to greet you with a happy face and a wagging tail, he loves his food, thinks walks are really exciting and as for toys well words cannot even begin to explain how much fun squeaky toys or a ball are! He is clean in the house and seems to be picking up basic commands already.This brilliant boys is so ready to have his forever home, he really is an absolute star We’re sure it won’t be long before all his dreams come true
Des (Romeo Desperado) is having a fabulous holiday with his best friend Ness.This weekend he has been particularly busy. This is what Ness tells us Desi has been up to.
“On Saturday Des had a run around the dog park in Ipswich with a Mastiff/Rotte Cross. Then we visited various family members. Des behaved like an total Angel!On Sunday Des caught the train from Westerfield to Felixstowe (and back). Where he bumped into one of his kin, Arthur, (and Brian & Jill too). Des had fun on the beach & a leisurely stroll through the seafront gardens. I think he wore his little self out!Bless his little white chops”.
He has spent Monday just chilling, he must be shattered!
Good news for little Wisp (old name was Kind Secret) this morning. She was reserved and went home before we had time to add her to the website! We will be seeing a lot of this pretty little girl as she is going to be one of our greyhound ambassadors at future events.
In other news, Bee, Jasper, Flo and Lee and Chilli and Ella visited for pedicures – lovely to see you and thanks for the donations.
What a wonderful morning! Bruce went home, Millie was chosen and went home straight away with her new brother Blue and Shamus was reserved.
Romeo Speedy and Black Hill Jet were both reserved today and will be going home shortly. Great news for these smashing boys.
Due to a sad change in family circumstances Lucia (Racing name Burgess Lucia) has been returned.
Lucia is currently being fostered with Robbie (Droopys Firmino) and they are getting on really well, it’s a real love affair. They are playing together and doing zoomies around the sitting room. Good job our foster carers are so laid back!
It was Birdie’s (Swithins Bird) turn to meet Lottie the Lurcher and Sam the Lab today. Both meetings went extremely well and we were able to remove Birdie’s muzzle. We know Birdie really well because he spent part of his racing career at Dillymore and were confident he wouldn’t be overwhelmed at the sight of ‘non Greyhounds’ But Rabbits now that is a different matter! He and Lottie were soon on the trail of them and ended up investigating the burrows. Sam wasn’t in the least bit interested in them, he much preferred to look at his Mum for good boy treats.
When Major arrived just a couple of weeks ago he was a shy lad who took his lead from his then kennel mate Evie. Over the next few days he came out of his shell and was happy to greet you at the front of the kennel. We were a little worried for him when his friend Evie went to her forever home but we needn’t have been, he has come on leaps and bounds and spent a lovely afternoon with Lottie the Lurcher yesterday. They had great fun in the paddocks together and exploring the grounds, paying particular attention to the rabbit warrens!
Following on from last weeks introduction to Lottie the Lurcher Roger (Coolleagh Recruit) met Sam the Labrador today. What a great success that was. Roger although curious, behaved extremely well and after some distanced parallel walking joined Sam in sniffing around the grounds and eventually each other. Roger is such a good lad on his lead, you hardly know you have got him.Well done Roger for coping so well and well done Sam the Labrador for doing a sterling job on his first assignment as a stooge dog.Once again Roger is wearing his muzzle as a precaution which is always sensible on initial introductions.
Yesterday we took Bullet out of kennels for the first time. Being a shy lad we thought he might find our usual route a little overwhelming and so took him to some quiet woods with Lottie the Lurcher and Archie the pesky puppy for company. We needn’t have worried because with his new friends by his side Bullet was far more confident than we had ever imagined he could be. He even got excited and wagged his tail a lot when he met some children.
