The sun shone for us today on our September walk at Shotley. 48 Greyhounds and their companions gathered for a stroll along the river and through the village. Kennel mates Bambi and Leo joined us and were so well behaved. Many thanks to Lynn and Darcy the retriever for helping to lead the walk and to The Shipwreck for their hospitality.
Just a reminder that we will be holding our September walk this coming Sunday (30th). Please meet opposite the Shipwreck bar / restaurant Shotley Marina at 11am. The Shipwreck will be open for drinks and bar food after the walk. Please see What’s on section for full details
Our next walk will take place on Sunday 30th September at 11am in Shotley. We will start and finish at the Marina, Shotley Gate IP9 1QJ. The walk will take approx. 1 hour.

Well, you can’t win them all … we lost the weather lottery for this month’s walk at Stutton (Alton Water). We didn’t count properly but we think around 35 greyhounds braved the elements and atrocious weather forecast. Thanks to Avril for leading the walk and making sandwiches for the greyhounds and to all those who donated cakes and made tea.
Well done to kennel boys Jet and Casey who both behaved immaculately – really friendly boys who walked very well and took their sandwiches very gently indeed.
See our facebook album for more photos.
Just a reminder that we have our annual picnic this coming Sunday (26th). For details see walks under the Whats on section. Tea and coffee will be provided for the humans and Sandwiches for the dogs. Hope to see you there.
Today 53 sight hounds and 6 of their companions took part in the Great Global Greyhound Walk at Woodbridge. Lofty who has waited so long for his forever home had a second date with Mavis. Will who was our special boy for so long paid us a surprise visit and we are happy to report he has come on leaps and bounds with the help of his family. We are always so pleased to see all of our homed hounds. Thank you for your continued support.
Just a reminder that our next walk the Great Global is on Sunday 10th June in Woodbridge. Details in what’s on events section under walks. Please come along if you can and make this a record breaking year.
