Well it hasn’t taken Taylor long to make himself at home! Here he is just hours after going home to his new family. Taylor has waited an awful long time to find his forever home and we wish him well.

Good luck Taylor and much love from us all xx
The sadness of another loss of one of our precious hounds descends upon us again. We have received news that Bradley (Droopy’s Bradley)’s family have had to say their final farewell to him. He has left a gaping hole in their lives but they have written this wonderful tribute below to him.
“How can we best describe our Bradley: a St Leger winner who was afraid of cats ! A dog who hated anything resembling dog food but who loved a naan bread, a sausage roll or a piece of Victoria Sponge! A greyhound who never attempted to climb on a sofa or a bed but liked to have a choice of comfy dog beds to sleep on around the house. He loved our caravan holidays and wide open spaces but hated water so much he’d walk a mile rather than through a puddle. No interest in soft toys but loved a good zoomie around the dining table. He was affectionate, calm, quiet and went everywhere off lead within two or three months of having him.
Everyone who met Bradley fell in love with him and vice versa – he believed anyone who came to our door was a new best friend.
He lit up our lives and became not only a member of our family but a best mate to us both.
Run free our dear Bradley – thank you for all the joy you have given us, the new friendships you have made happen, and the privilege of knowing you.”
Our hearts go out to Bradley’s family and we thank them for the wonderful retirement they gave him.
Sleep tight Bradders, so grateful for the cuddles we had with you just a little while ago.xxxx

His family are truly heartbroken. This is what they have said about him
“Duds as we affectionately called him loved his toys, his chewies and us, his family. He was a real Mummy’s boy who would look deep into her eyes as if he where looking into her very soul. We are missing him so much and we just can’t stop the tears from falling”
Run free from pain at the bridge dear Dudley and know your family’s love for you will remain in their hearts forever.

We had a real treat today when recently homed Jon Star (now called Blue) came to see us for a pedicure. He was so excited to see everyone it made our day. Old habits die hard because he headed straight for the shed where he clearly remembered is where we keep the treat jar! Bless his little heart.
We have had news of Magnus (Ballymac Magnier). He has settled well in his new home and he and Rory (Not so Classical) aka Derek are getting on really well together.
