Our annual trip to the Woodbridge Christmas Fair. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped out and to all who donated money and treats for the greyhounds at Christmas. Kennel dogs the Doctor and Seb enjoyed a day out from kennels and coped admirably with all that was thrown at them, and enjoyed the attention and the cuddles.

Due to the bad weather forecast for the weekend the organisers of the Boxford Dog Show have taken the wise but regrettable decision to cancel the dog show due to be held on Sunday. They hope to be in touch with a revised date shortly.
We have been invited to parade our greyhounds in the ring at the Countryside and Falconry Show, Stonham Barns at 2pm this coming Saturday. We won’t have a stand but it would be great if we could flood the show with greyhounds and spread the word. Details in What’s on section
We had a busy time at the Bentley fun day today where we ran the Dog Show. Some absolutely stunning dogs took part and were all so well behaved they are a credit to their owners. Many thanks to Judge Julie who had the unenviable job of picking the winners! Kennel dogs Casey and Bambi came along and were amazing, future greyhound ambassadors in the making.
It was a fine day for the Tattingstone Fete. We were joined by kennel dogs Conrad and Jon who were amazing given this was their first social event. Graeme Marsh from the Head Office team and his greyhound Reef came along to lend a hand and to meet the team. Well done to Reef, he won the most handsome dog class.
