Felixstowe Walk

We enjoyed another glorious walk in Felixstowe on Sunday.  We were joined by 58 Greyhounds and 9 of their companions.  Kennel dogs Des and Noah came along and behaved beautifully.  Many thanks to Mark for organising and leading the walk and to all who contributed towards the dogs Christmas fund. £57.30 was collected.

Frinton Walk

What a glorious day for a walk along the prom and a paddle!  24 Greyhounds and 3 of their pals enjoyed a lovely walk at Frinton yesterday.  Many thanks to Terry and Kirsty for organising this walk for us and to Peter for taking the photos.  Kennel dog Leo went along and had a lovely time.  He paddled in the sea and reminded everybody that he was once an expert hurdler by jumping over the sea defenses.

Nice enough for a paddle.

Shotley Walk

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.

A very soggy walk

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.

Reminder

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.
