Many thanks to Mandy one of our kind supporters who recently celebrated a special birthday In lieu of presents she asked for donations for two of her favourite charities. We were one of them and are most grateful for the donation of £195. Thanks Mandy from all at Greyhound Homer we hope you enjoyed your party.
At a couple of our recent shows volunteer Angie has successfully run a Tombola stall which has proved popular and is a great way of raising much needed funds. If you have any items you no longer need which you think might be suitable we would be very grateful for them. If you could drop them at kennels, bring them to one of our walks or pop them to your nearest volunteer that would be much appreciated. In the first instance please ring either Avril or Sue if you need to know where your nearest Volunteer can be found. Thank you.
Photos of our recently homed Dogs Heather (now Ruby) and Bing (now Bill). Both are settling in really well. Ruby and her new friend Jack are getting on well together and Bill has discovered the delights of sleeping on his owners bed! Think both are being spoiled rotten, just as they should be.

Today we have been walking in Woodbridge as part of the Great Global Greyhound Walk. We had 43 greyhounds and 6 of their companions on our walk and the running total for the number of dogs walking globally was 3,250 but there are still some results to come in.
Kennel dogs Sonny, Mickey and Bing came along as well as Bings kennel mate and special friend Toosie Beannie. A gret time was had by all. For a large selection of photos from today’s walk please visit our Facebook page.

Fabulous news for kennel mates Heather and Oscar. They both went off to their forever homes yesterday. We have had an update on Heather who is now called Ruby, she had a good night and in fact she joined us on our walk today.
Good luck in your new homes, you go with much love from us all

We will be holding a meet and greet session on Manningtree Market tomorrow to celebrate National Greyhound Day. We will be there between 8.30 and 12.30 so do come along and say hello. If you have a greyhound why not bring him or her along, lets flood the town with our precious hounds. The address is Brook Street Manningtree CO11 1DJ.
We have had good news from recently homed Barney’s family.
He has settled very well and gets on with his new friend Cassie like a house on fire. They play together in the garden and curl up together for a snooze. Barney is eating well and has discovered the delights of a Tuna pasta bake. He has a big stuffed elephant that he tosses around the garden, well, that’s when he isn’t busy digging! Cheeky little monkey we are so pleased for him.
Yesterday was day two of the Suffolk Show for us and our wonderful hounds. Blimey it was hot! We decided to take them home by 14.30 as it was too tiring and uncomfortable for them. However they had a great time while they were there, enjoying hot dogs and ice creams. They were even featured on the Lesley Dolphin show on Radio Suffolk.
For more photos of their day out please visit our Facebook page.

Thanks to all who stopped by the Greyhound Homer stand at the Suffolk Show today, and to all our lovely volunteer greyhounds and humans. Three kennel dogs, Boycie, Heather and Oscar, were great ambassadors for all their friends in kennels. See our facebook page for many more photos. If you’re at the Suffolk Show tomorrow, be sure to say hello at stand White 892.
