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 with very heavy hearts we have to give the tragic news that Tudor passed away earlier this week, while under anaesthetic as he was being neutered. He was a happy, affectionate and adorable boy, a kennel favourite who had finished racing and had a lovely home waiting for him.
Born in April 2015, Tudor (Tudor Dynasty) spent much of his puppyhood at Dillymore, where he was much loved by all who looked after him. His racing owners kept him at home for a while, and he was raced at kennels close to them where they walked him regularly, and they are devastated by his loss.
Our thoughts are all at Dillymore who cared for him, his racing owners, and with the couple who were waiting to take Tudor home. They have bravely decided to go ahead with their plans to adopt a greyhound, and they will be taking Nemo home in a few weeks.
The vet practice says that Tudor suffered a heart attack while under anaesthetic, that this is an extremely rare occurrence, and in spite of all their best efforts to save him, they couldn’t revive him. All at the vets are heartbroken.
Sleep tight Tudor, we’ll miss your waggy tail and sweet nature, and you won’t be forgotten by anybody who knew you.
