It’s been another busy week at kennels. Grace went home, Blue came back (he would prefer a family that doesn’t work full time) Chilli didn’t go home so is available again, Dear old Revie had a couple of viewers, Leo went for a walk at Alton Water and we held a meet and greet session at the Co-op in Hadleigh with kennel dogs Seb and Fabia. Both boys were so well behaved and made a good impression on local MP James Cartlidge who visited our stand. Thanks to our Greyhound Ambassadors Spring, Troy, Roy, Toby and Teddy, to the staff and management of the Co-op and to the generous public who gave donations and took the time to chat to us and our dogs.
Meet and Greet at Hadleigh with James Cartlidge MP
Leo with the yellow muzzle walking with his Volunteers Terry and Pete and his new found friends Massey, Toby and Fox.
Dear old Revie is hoping somebody will offer him a forever home for Christmas. Revie is 10 years old and has been returned along with his friend Flo because of a change in family circumstances. He is pleased that Flo has found a new forever family but he is longing to be part of a loving family himself once more. He is such a happy chap in spite of the fact he has been through a heart breaking time. If you could offer Revie another chance of happiness please get in touch.
A busy weekend at kennels. We were visited by Toosie Beannie and My Mate Max who came to have their nails clipped. Blink who was reserved on Thursday had a visit from his new family and Cookie was given the good news that she has been reserved subject to a home check. On top of all that we welcomed Des (Romeo Desperado) to our happy band of retired dogs and Sam went off to start his new life with his forever family.
Well it might have been a grey day for most of us but the sun was shining in Bambi’s(Pacey Bambi) heart when he was visited by his racing family. He was taken for a walk with his friend Pacey Gina and had loads of cuddles. It was lovely to meet his racing family and we hope it wont be too long before we will be able to say Bambi has a forever home. He is a smashing lad.
It’s been a busy weekend at kennels. Firstly we welcomed two new arrivals. Handsome fellas Chilli and John can bee seen on our homeless hounds page. Then happy little sweetheart Blue went to his forever home and on Sunday we had the best news of the week when the lovely Chico went home after an almost 9 month wait for his forever home. Welcome Chilli and Jon and good luck to Blue and Chico – have a wonderful happy life boys.
Our homeless hound Milly who has been waiting since March for her forever home had a walk around Alton Water with a gorgeous retriever called Darcy yesterday and a sleepover at greyhound Fox’s house with her Volunteer. It had been brought to our attention that Milly was scared of slippery surfaces and so with the help of lots of mats etc laid over the tiled and laminate floors and with Fox’s encouragement Milly agreed to stay. She soon found her confidence, didn’t need the help of the mats after a while and had a great time. She is such an affectionate and sweet girl we hope she finds her forever home soon. Unbelievably for her first night in a strange place she woke her Volunteer up at 0.245 because she needed to go out to the toilet. What a good girl.
It was good news for Irene this week when she learned she was reserved after a successful home check. Missy went to her forever home and we wish her well, bless her she had a long wait and Milly had a lovely day out with her friend.
Following the disappointing news that the dogs couldn’t go to the Suffolk Dog Day because of the weather we cheered them all up with extra treats and a lovely cooling bath.
We also welcomed Greaves (below) to our band of homeless hounds.
We made the best of the warm weather and bathed some of the dogs today. Here is cheeky Chico all in a lather and then soaking his Aunty Angie whilst shaking off the rinsing water!
Our longest stayer, the lovely Chico had fun and games this morning. First of all he went for a game of chase with his volunteer in the paddocks and then he learnt a new game of find the treat. He had to use his nose and his brain to work out where the treats were in the ball pit. He loved that game. He then had a good brush and lots of cuddles. Dear little Chico, he would so love a family to call his own.
Good news for Freddie, Cookie, Missy and Tudor. All of their home checks went well and they will all be going home soon.
