Good News

The lovely Kenny went home on Monday and Cracker has been reserved and will be going home once a successful home check has been completed.
Look out for two dogs who will be appearing on the website within the next few days.



IMG_8892 (2)Meet Wilfie (was called Vic), a very affectionate boy who went home today.
I’ve had the pleasure of looking after this handsome fella for the last week while he was recovering from his neutering operation (kennels were too full due to half term to give him the recovery space he needed). He has been perfectly well behaved in the house, and turned heads wherever he went with his waggy tail and heart-melting eyes.
He didn’t appear in the homeless hounds section of our website as he was reserved the very same morning that he became available for homing.
We all wish him a lovely life in his new home, be happy Wilfie!

Hadleigh Walks

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.

Paws with a Cause

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.

The Robin Hood Game and Country Fair

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.

One in, one out, and one reserved

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.
