Home Time

Two of our lovely hounds went home recently.  Cookie went home on Sunday and little Nina who had only been with us for two weeks went on Monday.  We wish them both every happiness in their new homes.
Below is a photo of Cookie with his family.

Tendring Show

We will be at the Tendring Show tomorrow.  Our stand number is A9 so if you are going to the show do stop and say hello.  Due to the extreme temperatures forecast we will not be taking any kennel dogs along but have lots of goodies for sale.  Full details of the venue can be fount under our whats on section.


Here is the lovely Nemo (Droopy’s Opah) going home earlier this week. Have a lovely life sweetheart we know you will be everything your family had hoped Tudor would have been had life not dealt such a cruel blow. You are such a lovely boy and have waited so long for your turn. Be happy, you go with so much love from us all.

Bath Time

We made the best of the warm weather and bathed some of the dogs today.  Here is cheeky Chico all in a lather and then soaking his Aunty Angie whilst shaking off the rinsing water!

Lordy Goes Home

The fabulously friendly Lordy went to his forever home today.  He has a new name – Buddy we think it suits him rather well.  Good luck sweetheart we will miss your happy little face but we couldn’t be happier for you.

Tudor, taken too soon

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.

Fun and Games for Chico

Our longest stayer, the lovely Chico had fun and games this morning.  First of all he went for a game of chase with his volunteer in the paddocks and then he learnt a new game of find the treat.  He had to use his nose and his brain to work out where the treats were in the ball pit.  He loved that game.  He then had a good brush and lots of cuddles. Dear little Chico, he would so love a family to call his own.
