Blink and Dart went to Mills Mutts Doggy Day care centre again today where they are learning all about other breeds of dogs. We like to give our dogs as many new experiences as we can while they await their forever homes. Leo went for a lovely walk in Dedham with his homed pals Roy and Davey and then went to the Dedham Sun for lunch.

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.
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.
Ruby and Queenie two beautiful little girls have arrived and the lovely Chico has been returned. He would love to find another home . All three are now appearing on our homeless hounds page.
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.

Many thanks to Tesco Community Champion Lyn Rabett and all of the staff and customers at Tesco Highwoods for making us so welcome today. We took along kennel dogs The Doctor, Chilli and Casey who were shown the ropes by our Greyhound Ambassadors Spring, Davey and Joe. Thanks to everyone who took the time to chat to us and for the generous donations.

We have an update on Pud now called Lily. Pud was homed before we even had a chance to photograph her let alone put her on the website Jose who we homed last December came calling for a Lady friend. Just by chance Pud was being walked, Jose went over to say hello and that was that. They had a few dates before Pud went home with him and all is going well. Pud has settled in nicely and as you can see it didn’t take her long to join Jose on the sofa!

Fantastic news! Following our appeal for a home for 10 year old Revie we are pleased to say he has gone to his forever home today. Thank you to everyone who shared his appeal on Facebook and sent him their best wishes. A massive thank you to his new family for giving this lovely old timer a home. Good luck Revie sweetheart we are over the moon for you.xxx
It’s been another busy week at kennels. Grace went home, Blue came back (he would prefer a family that doesn’t work full time) Chilli didn’t go home so is available again, Dear old Revie had a couple of viewers, Leo went for a walk at Alton Water and we held a meet and greet session at the Co-op in Hadleigh with kennel dogs Seb and Fabia. Both boys were so well behaved and made a good impression on local MP James Cartlidge who visited our stand. Thanks to our Greyhound Ambassadors Spring, Troy, Roy, Toby and Teddy, to the staff and management of the Co-op and to the generous public who gave donations and took the time to chat to us and our dogs.

Dear old Revie is hoping somebody will offer him a forever home for Christmas. Revie is 10 years old and has been returned along with his friend Flo because of a change in family circumstances. He is pleased that Flo has found a new forever family but he is longing to be part of a loving family himself once more. He is such a happy chap in spite of the fact he has been through a heart breaking time. If you could offer Revie another chance of happiness please get in touch.
