New Years Day Walk

Once again we were blessed with good weather for our walk.  Over 70 Greyhounds and 9 of their pals joined us for our walk in Stutton today.  They were joined by kennel dogs Chico, Leo and Bambi who all behaved well. Little Chico’s tail hardly stopped wagging.  Thank you to everyone who helped set up the hall, made refreshments and helped to clear up at the end. For more photos visit our Facebook Page

New Years Day Walk

Stutton New Years Day 2019 11am
Meet at The Community Hall, Manningtree Road, Stutton IP9 2TA
We have  booked the Community Hall for tea, Coffee and biscuits after our walk to Alton Water.  We hope to have a leader for a shorter walk for those who would like a more gentle stroll. Should nobody be available to lead a short walk we will make the usual long walk a little shorter or advise those not wanting to walk too far when we have reached the half way point so they may return to the hall if they wish to.
All breeds of dogs are welcome.

Boxing Day walk, Felixstowe

92 greyhounds and 12 companion dogs joined us on a grey Boxing Day to walk off the Christmas excesses (and then eat mince pies and sausage rolls). Huge thanks to all those who made pies, rolls, tea and coffee, and to all for your kind donations.

The Doctor joined us from kennels and was a very good ambassador for all his friends needing homes.

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.

Walk Reminder

Just a little reminder that our next walk takes place this Sunday (4th) at Languard Point Felixtowe at 11am.  We hope you can make it.  Full details are in our What’s On section under walks.

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.
