Another good day at kennels

The beautiful Bo went to her forever home today.  Bo was a firm kennel favourite having lived at Dillymore since she was a puppy.  She is the Granddaughter of the legendry Star of Dromin and special boy Will’s very best friend. Good luck little Bo we will miss you xx
Good news for our shy boy Tony.  He was reserved today pending a satisfactory home check.  We have our fingers well and truly crossed on that score because he and his prospective owner got along famously.
Claire is into the Christmas spirit already and made us all smile when she tried on her best Christmas outfit.

Paddy Goes Home

Good news everybody.  The lovely Paddy went home on Monday.  We are particularly pleased for Paddy because he had already spent 3 years in a loving home but due to unfortunate family circumstances he had to be returned.
We have had an update and a photo from his new family to say he is settling in well and that he found the sofa the minute he walked in the door!
We love to see our previously homed dogs find happiness for the second time. Good luck Paddy xx

Highwoods Country Park

Thank you to Greyhound Walks for inviting us to join them on their walk through Highwoods Country Park today. It was a nice turn out given the appalling weather.  We took our special boy Will along.  Will is very shy and not quite ready to go to a forever home just yet but he was a brave little soldier today given that this is only his third trip out of kennels. Although quite hand shy still he was keen to make friends with several of the other dogs.  He walked beautifully on his lead.  We are very hopeful that there is a special home out there for this lovely lad.
Rio also came along and was given the good news that he will be going to live with his forever family pending a successful home check and after he recovers from his ‘man op’

Resized Will, Lucy and RockyLucy thought brave Will made a lovely chin rest!

Resized Rio with familyRio is walked by his prospective new family.  He behaved brilliantly.



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.
