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.
Thank you to the R.S.P.C.A Martlesham for inviting us to take part in their fun day today. We took along Mundo, Nassau and Yunny. It was the first social event they had attended. Well what little Superstars they were. Yunny wanted to be at the front of the stand from the off and barely stopped greeting people all day, Nassau was very laid back and enjoyed lots of fuss. Poor Mundo had a terrible experience when he first arrived. He was shouted at by 2 dogs. Well that sent him diving for cover beneath Volunteer Sue’s skirt! However after a cuddle behind the stand and a spell on Sue’s lap he soon regained his confidence and enjoyed the rest of the day.
We were visited by several of our homed hounds and they did a fantastic job, helping out on the stand by promoting their fellow hounds that are still waiting to be chosen.

Kennel dogs Pearl, Boycie, Trigger and Arthur had a day out at the Hadleigh Show today. With the exception of Arthur they were a little overwhelmed to start with as it was the first time they had been to a social event but they soon settled and had a nice time.
We were visited by friends old and new. We even had a Royal visitor. No not one of the Windsors, it was Cree Royal who went home yesterday. What a little superstar he proved to be! His tail barely stopped wagging. He will be a fantastic ambassador for his greyhound friends still waiting for their forever home.
The tombola proved to be a very popular addition to our stand. Well done to Angie for organising that, to Mathew, Hannah and Julie for manning it and many thanks to those who donated prizes.

Boycie makes friends.
Today we have been to the Robin Hood show held at Trinity Park Ipswich. Kennel dogs Jacob, Claire and Kenny joined us. This was Kenny’s first time at a show but after a shy start he did well. He was particularly well behaved around other dogs and showed no interest in a ferret on a lead! We will be there again tomorrow so do come along and say hello if you are going.

All of the homeless hounds had a trip out again this weekend. We went to the Henham Steam Rally. We were helped by our new volunteers. Welcome to the team Craig, Julie, Mathew, Hannah, Tony, Di, Chris and John. The hounds were thoroughly spoiled by the lovely couple in the stand next door with bags full of lovely treats. Thank you.
We a busy weekend this weekend. Over the two days all of our kennel dogs available for homing had a day out. On Saturday Joker, Dexter, Betty and Jacob went to the Tattingstone fete and on Sunday Claire, Moody, Rocky and Davey went to the Bentley fete and fun dog show. Claire came 3rd in the prettiest bitch. Our thanks go to Julie who kindly offered to judge the show for us and the organisers of both fetes for inviting us and for the hard work they put in to making the fetes a success.
Wow! What a day! We were rushed off our feet talking about our greyhounds with potential new owners and old friends. The sun shone, and the steady stream of visitors to our stall did not stop all day.
Kennel dogs Puffa, who got through to the last 14 in the very large Best Rescue class is seen here exhausted after her busy day. Queenie had a lovely day away from kennels – she showed us that she wants to friends with everybody and worked hard to make sure that everybody knows how amazing greyhounds are all day, she didn’t want to miss out on anything.
As usual, more photos available on our facebook page.
We have had a busy but fingers crossed successful day at the Tendring Show. Kennel dogs Mac and Dexter had their first outing and both behaved extremely well. Mac has a blind date next Saturday and if it goes well he will be going home! We were visited by lots of our homed dogs and their owners and four old friends Kevin, Sally, Lily and Ty came along to say hi. It was lovely to see you all.
