We had a lovely day at the Greyhound Walks Show. Kennel dogs Chico, Java and Milly came along and we are hopeful that as well as coming 3rd in the 4 years and younger class Chico may have a home. Thanks to our fabulous hard working ambassadors Roy, Spring, Bailey, Queenie, Lucky and Flossy for bringing their families along to help us.
We will be at the Tendring Show tomorrow. Our stand number is A9 so if you are going to the show do stop and say hello. Due to the extreme temperatures forecast we will not be taking any kennel dogs along but have lots of goodies for sale. Full details of the venue can be fount under our whats on section.
Our National Greyhound Day event was spent at the Monks Eleigh Fete. We took kennel dog Lofty along in the hope of finding him a home, he has waited such a long time.
Volunteer Terry who was ably assisted by Davey (Millwards Davey) gave an interesting and informative talk in the show ring about the history of the Greyhound while our volunteers and supporters paraded their hounds.
Monks Eleigh fete and dog show 1st June IP7 7JL
This is a fete we will be attending but will not have a stall. If you would like to come along we would be very pleased to see you because Volunteer Terry will be giving a presentation on greyhounds and we have been asked to parade our greyhounds in the show ring so the more the merrier.
The fete starts at 1pm and finishes at 5pm. Terry will be presenting and the hounds will be paraded at approx. 4.15
We have had a fabulous two days at the Suffolk show with lots of our homed hounds either volunteering or coming along to visit us. Kennel dogs Freddie, Jodie, Jill, Cookie, Tudor, Max, Dart and Missy are all hoping they wowed the show visitors enough to bag themselves a forever home.
We are so full of pride for our kennel boys this weekend we are fit to burst! We took 6 of them to the Hadleigh show and they were amazing. So well behaved. For most of them it was their first public event, nothing fazed them and they were so eager to meet people and have a fuss. Well done Nemo, Cookie, Freddie, Lordy, Lofty and Jet.
Thanks also to our homed hounds and their families for coming along to visit us.
We have a busy weekend ahead!
Friday 18th we are holding a meet and Greet Session at Tesco Copdaock between 0.930 and 17.30. If you are shopping please stop and say hello to our kennel dogs.

Yesterday was day two of the Suffolk Show for us and our wonderful hounds. Blimey it was hot! We decided to take them home by 14.30 as it was too tiring and uncomfortable for them. However they had a great time while they were there, enjoying hot dogs and ice creams. They were even featured on the Lesley Dolphin show on Radio Suffolk.
For more photos of their day out please visit our Facebook page.

Thanks to all who stopped by the Greyhound Homer stand at the Suffolk Show today, and to all our lovely volunteer greyhounds and humans. Three kennel dogs, Boycie, Heather and Oscar, were great ambassadors for all their friends in kennels. See our facebook page for many more photos. If you’re at the Suffolk Show tomorrow, be sure to say hello at stand White 892.
