Unfortunately today’s post is a sad one, We have learned of the passing of Farley Totti at the age of 12. Totti as we called him at kennels was affectionately known as Tommy when he went to his forever home. His owner paid tribute to him saying Tommy was a wonderful dog, not a moments trouble and was quite simply her whole world. Our thoughts are very much with her. Thank you to Tommy’s racing owner who has sent us a photo of him in his prime. Tommy made the final of the prestigious Puppy Derby and a video of that race can be found on our Facebook page. Rest well dear Tommy, much love xx
Our Greyhounds are a hardy bunch, undeterred by the wind and the rain around 40 of them joined in our walk today. Kennel dogs Taylor (Bramble Taylor), Whizz (Whizzy Devil), Harry Brown (Knockhard Spring) and Boysie (Itsurboy) came along and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Many thanks to Mistley Place Park cafe for your hospitality.
URGENT! A black male Greyhound new to the area has slipped it’s collar and is loose in Barton Mills IP28 near the roundabout. Sketchy details at the moment but if spotted please call 07966691068. Thank you.
Update This afternoon he has been spotted near the picnic area close to MacDonalds in Barton Mills. Not yet caught but thankfully still alive!
Update Dog found safe and sound and his owner is on his way to collect him.
Please could you help to fill Bert and Rupert’s Santa Sacks? These two lovely boys would like nothing more than another shot at home life this Christmas but time is running out and so the next best thing on their wish list would be some lovely treats to share with their friends. They would be so grateful. Treats of all kinds from Sardines in oil to Gravy Bones would be very welcome. Thank you.
A few photos from a soggy Woodbridge Christmas Fair. Kennel boys Fizz (orange muzzle) and Exile (white muzzle) came along and behaved so well – it was crowded with humans and other breeds of dogs, and they didn’t put a foot wrong. Thanks to everybody who came to say hello and for the donations.
Conner (Clona Flyer) and Taylor (Bramble Taylor) had an afternoon out yesterday. They had a stroll around the Village and then went to Bypass Nurseries and the Bluebell cafe. Both boys lapped up lots of fuss and behaved really well. Conner then had a sleepover at his Volunteer’s house and was taken to a dog training class to meet some other breeds of dogs. He made friends easily which is great because when he returned to kennels this morning he had a visit from a couple who want to adopt him and they own a dog friendly cafe.
Great news for the lovely Leo who has been with us for the best part of a year. All of his dreams came true when he was taken home forever by his favourite Volunteer Terry. Leo loves Terry and has spent many a weekend with him while he has been waiting for that special someone. But his wait is over and he has joined Terry’s happy band of hounds Massey, Davey, Charlie and Rebel. We are so pleased for you Leo and we love you very much xxx
