Due to the bad weather forecast for the weekend the organisers of the Boxford Dog Show have taken the wise but regrettable decision to cancel the dog show due to be held on Sunday. They hope to be in touch with a revised date shortly.
We have had news of Caesar (Oakfield Caesar). He has recently been on holiday and had a fabulous time on the beach. He bumped into another of our recently homed hounds Nemo (Droopys Opah) Happy to say both boys are enjoying a very happy retirement.
We hope this may be of interest to you, our supporters. Dominica Yannaghas is an artist based in Hadleigh Suffolk. There will be an exhibition of her hound and Galgos paintings in Felixstowe throughout the month of October (Please see details on the poster). Dominica has kindly offered us a donation in return for us advertising her exhibition.
This week we have welcomed Grace, Flo, Revie. The Doctor,Cookie and Blink to our happy band of homeless hounds waiting for their forever homes. We are a little sad for Revie, Flo and Grace who have sadly had to be returned to kennels following either a change in family circumstances or the failing health of their owner. Please take a look at them all on our homeless-hounds page.
We have been invited to parade our greyhounds in the ring at the Countryside and Falconry Show, Stonham Barns at 2pm this coming Saturday. We won’t have a stand but it would be great if we could flood the show with greyhounds and spread the word. Details in What’s on section
Yesterday we bid a fond farewell to the lovely Jet. Jet has waited a while but you can never wait too long for a good thing! We will miss our snugggles with him but we sent him on his way with much love from us all. Be happy sweetheart. xx
We had a busy time at the Bentley fun day today where we ran the Dog Show. Some absolutely stunning dogs took part and were all so well behaved they are a credit to their owners. Many thanks to Judge Julie who had the unenviable job of picking the winners! Kennel dogs Casey and Bambi came along and were amazing, future greyhound ambassadors in the making.
It was a fine day for the Tattingstone Fete. We were joined by kennel dogs Conrad and Jon who were amazing given this was their first social event. Graeme Marsh from the Head Office team and his greyhound Reef came along to lend a hand and to meet the team. Well done to Reef, he won the most handsome dog class.

Well it might have been a grey day for most of us but the sun was shining in Bambi’s(Pacey Bambi) heart when he was visited by his racing family. He was taken for a walk with his friend Pacey Gina and had loads of cuddles. It was lovely to meet his racing family and we hope it wont be too long before we will be able to say Bambi has a forever home. He is a smashing lad.
We are all over the moon to learn that one of our beautiful homed hounds and Greyhound Ambassador Roy (Cree Royal) went to the Great Greyhound Gathering on Sunday and won Best in Show. To qualify for the final he first of all won the Dog in best condition aged 4 to 6 years. Well done Roy we are so proud of you and really pleased for your family.xx
