We have an update on Pud now called Lily. Pud was homed before we even had a chance to photograph her let alone put her on the website Jose who we homed last December came calling for a Lady friend. Just by chance Pud was being walked, Jose went over to say hello and that was that. They had a few dates before Pud went home with him and all is going well. Pud has settled in nicely and as you can see it didn’t take her long to join Jose on the sofa!

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
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.
