Rugby Club Fete

Well done and thank you to our hardy Volunteers who braved the cold on Saturday afternoon to promote our Greyhounds at the Ipswich Valley Rugby Club fete.

June Walk

A walk we haven’t done for a long time, taking in the beautiful Suffolk Countryside. The walk lasts approx. one hour fifteen minutes. A shorter 20 minute walk is suitable for pushchairs and older dogs. We are welcome at The white Horse pub on our return and parking is available for a £1 charge on the parish playing field. If you would like to eat at the pub please book in advance by emailing Details of the address and walk times are in the walk section

Superstars Blue and Breeze

Blue (Gymstar Elusive) and Breeze (Oh Sea Breeze) joined us on their very first day out when we attended the Hadleigh show yesterday. What little super stars they both were. We can’t praise them enough.
It was a joy to meet old friends and new, one highlight being a visit from Java (Tip top Java.)
Thank you to all who took the time to visit our stand and as always well done to our wonderful Greyhound Ambassadors.

Hadleigh Show

We will be attending the Hadleigh Show on Saturday 21st. If you are there do come along and see us, we will be on stand X2
If you are intending to visit the show please note you cannot pay on the gate.

The South Suffolk Show

Yesterday we attended the South Suffolk Show. Russian Blake who has now retired joined us.
Given Blake had never met other breeds of dogs or men with bells on and had never seen a funfair or heard a brass band he coped remarkably well after a nervous start.
Thank you to our Ambassadors Toby, Roy, Charlie and Martha for helping to show Blake the ropes and to all who visited our stand.

Sleep Tight Beautiful Flora

Sad news. Beautiful Flora has crossed the rainbow bridge.
Flora attended our walks on a regular basis and often met up with her younger brother Phantom. Let’s hope Phantom was there to greet her as she crossed.
Below is Flora’s family’s lovely tribute to her.
“It is with great sadness that we let you know that we have had to say goodbye to our lovely Flora (Mullpark Flora) on 22 April.Flora was a lovely, happy and gentle girl, born at Dillymore on 17/02/2010 and has been a huge part of our family since 09/2013.She loved her food, early morning walks and sniffs and life in general. Recently she’d not been eating very well, not so keen to go for walks and losing weight. After numerous tests our vet suspected a tumour because of her symptoms. So after 8 years and 7 months it was with a heavy heart we had to make the awful decision to let her go. We are both heartbroken.Thank you lovely Flora for all the happy memories. We miss you but will never forget you.”
Mullpark Flora 17/02/2010 – 22/04/2022
Thank you for the wonderful life you gave Flora. May her beautiful soul fly high and free with her siblings who have gone before her.You will be much missed sweetheart.xx
