What a glorious day it was for our walks in Hadleigh today. Great turnout with 50 greyhounds and 6 of their friends. Kennel dogs Paddy and Claire came along and enjoyed themselves. Many thanks to Angie and Anne for leading the walks and to the Landlady of The George for making us welcome in the pub garden afterwards. See lots more photos on our Facebook page.
Davey, Cracker and their kennel friend Beanie helped raise money for the East Anglian air ambulance on Sunday when they took part in an event held at Gt Glemham Hall. They completed a 5 mile walk around the beautiful estate and surrounding countryside before heading back to have a look around the various trade stands. They received lots of fuss from the organisers and other walkers and shared a jumbo hot dog and various treats. It was best friends Cracker and Beanie’s first event but old hand Davey with his show experience and his wonderful air of superiority soon taught them that slippery wooden bridges and steps were nothing to be afraid of. Well done to Davey, such a helpful boy.

Well not quite lined up are they!
The lovely Kenny has been reserved today and will be going home once his home check has been completed and he has had his ‘man op’
Today we have been to the Robin Hood show held at Trinity Park Ipswich. Kennel dogs Jacob, Claire and Kenny joined us. This was Kenny’s first time at a show but after a shy start he did well. He was particularly well behaved around other dogs and showed no interest in a ferret on a lead! We will be there again tomorrow so do come along and say hello if you are going.

Bunny’s home check was successful and she has now hopped off to her forever home with her new Lurcher friends. Good luck Bunny xx
Today was a special day at kennels. Our longest stayer Moody finally went home with his forever family. We were so pleased for him it brought a lump to the throat and tears to the eyes when waving him off.
His space on the homeless hounds page was soon taken by the lovely Kenny. Only just four years old Kenny has spent most of his life at Dillymore and is a kennel favourite.
Bunny, who only arrived last week has been reserved and will be going home tomorrow all being well with her home check. She is going to live with two lovely Lurchers.
Beautiful blue litter sisters Bella and Tilly arrived today. Lovely friendly girls who seem at home at Dillymore already.
Take a look at our Homeless Hounds page for more details of them and Mondays new arrivals Cracker and Bunny.
Many thanks to Louis and Linda for arranging a dance in aid of Greyhound Homer. Their hard work resulted in a fantastic £400 being raised. Our thanks to all who donated raffle prizes and gave such generous donations. It is very much appreciated.
So many of our lovely hounds have either gone home or have been reserved in the last few weeks. Please keep checking our homeless pages though because we will shortly be adding more dogs. Coming soon are Black and White boy Cracker and Black girl Bunny along with several others.
Update 03/10/16 Bunny and Cracker have arrived!
The last few days have seen Dexter, Betty and Joker all go off to their forever homes. Good luck guys you go with much love from us all. We hope to see you at one of our walks or shows.
