Another cold day at the Suffolk Show – in previous years we had packed sunglasses and sunscreen, this year was all about layers, hot chocolate and preventing things from blowing around in the wind. It didn’t stop kennel dogs Steel and Kat from having a fantastic day out though! They were both very well behaved all day, lapping up attention and enjoying meeting humans and other dogs alike.
Here’s beautiful Kat having a rest towards the end of a busy day. She is a very loving girl, and wants to be friends with everybody.
Below – here’s Steel relaxing and enjoying all the attention that a handsome, laid back boy deserves. He was a little overwhelmed at the start of the day but soon relaxed.
Let’s hope that Steel and Kat’s efforts find them homes, along with many homes for their friends in kennels.
Well it was a miserable day weather wise for the first day of the Suffolk show, but that didn’t dampen our spirits. We had lots of visitors and met friends old and new. We even did a spot of dog sitting. Phantom and Lulu made themselves so comfy on the stand they decided their owners could go off and enjoy a few hours at the show without them. Jan the kennel dog proudly wore her please adopt me coat and after a shy start soon got into the swing of things. If you are visiting the show tomorrow do come and say hello we are on 11th Avenue.
On Sunday kennel dogs Bonnie and Steel went to the greyhound extravaganza held at the Animal Health Trust Newmarket. They had a great time meeting lots of other dogs as well as families. Both were really well behaved, traveled well and walked nicely on their leads.

Bonnie and Steel spent most of the day at the front of the stand meeting people. They both worked really hard.

After the walk at Mistley on Sunday Lee went to stay with his foster Mum who will look after him while he has his man op. As you can see he has properly taken to home life already. What a lovely laid back chap he is.
Today 55 greyhounds and two other breeds joined us for a walk at Mistley. Most dogs did the long route but there was a shorter walk for the ‘oldies’ (dogs not people). Once again we were made very welcome at the Mistley Park rescue centre and cafe.
On Saturday we attended the Hadleigh show. Kennel dogs Ruby and Blue came along in the morning and Davey and Sprite spent the afternoon with us. All four of them enjoyed lots of fuss and attention from the visitors to the stall and all made friends with various other breeds of dogs.
Junior had a lovely cuddle and lots of kisses for his foster Mum to say thank you for looking after him so well while he recovered from his ‘Gentlemans’ operation. Junior is now fully recovered and back at Dillymore but we are not sure for how much longer because he has a date with a lady dog on Saturday. Fingers crossed she falls for his charms.
Brilliant news from kennels today. Baz and Jan both reserved.
Kennel dogs Ruby and Blue had a morning out of kennels today. They paced out the Mistley short walk in readiness for Sunday 22nd. Ruby thought the half an hour it took was just about right for a mature lady such as herself (Ruby is 11 years old). Both dogs behaved impeccably and were friendly towards everyone they met including a terrier and small fluffy dog. Visit them on our homeless hounds page for more photos.
Just a little reminder that our next play date takes place this Sunday (15th) from 2pm to 4pm at Kembroke Kennels, Wattermill Road, Bucklesham. IP10 0BU.
