Rest Easy Roger

A very sad day today as we learned that Roger (Colleagh Recruit) has crossed the bridge just shy of his 8th birthday. After surviving cancer in his tail earlier this year he took a bad turn last week and his heartbroken family made the hardest but kindest decision not to let him suffer.

They have written this lovely tribute to him below:-

Wanted to let you know that Roger left us on Thursday this week. Immeasurable sadness is the only way of expressing the feeling of losing him. Nearly made it to his 8th birthday. Had such a lovely journey with such a sweet, funny, loving and loyal boy. Lost our nap buddy, just won’t be the same.

Roger was an absolute joy to have in kennels and our hearts go out to his family, he was loved beyond compare and we thank them for the wonderful home they gave him.

Sleep tight Roger, you will never be forgotten by those who knew and loved you xx

Sleep Tight Spike

We sometimes have to post the saddest of messages and today is no exception.

We have heard from Spike’s (Little Sheikh) owner to say that sadly following a massive stroke her dearest Spike was put to sleep last Thursday.

Below is the lovely tribute she has written about her special boy:-

“Spike was a beautiful, kind, gentle friendly boy. I was so lucky to have him in my life and to have had his friendship. I miss him terribly but he has left me with some wonderful memories”

We can all relate to that, the pain of loosing them is so great but we know that one day we will think of them and the memories they have left us with and we will smile before the tears begin to fall.

Thank you for giving Spike such a happy and loving home.

Rest easy dear Spike knowing you couldn’t have known a greater love than that of your owner who will hold you in her heart forever.

Today we attended the Royal British Legion 80th D-Day commemorations in Woodbridge.

Thank you to all who visited our stand and as always to our Greyhound Ambassadors.

Monks Eleigh Fete and Dog Show

This weekend we attended the Monks Eleigh village fete and fun dog show.

The weather was kind and a good time was had by all. Our Ambassadors Jessica, Arthur, Charlie and Bob gave another excellent performance showing everyone what great pets Greyhounds make.

Kennel dog Bear came along and was an absolute super star, happy to have a fuss from everyone he met, in fact he demanded it. Bear also came fourth in the handsome dog competition. Well done Bear, obviously you will always win first place in our hearts.

Larry Appeal

UPDATE. Fantastic news Larry is safe!

He ran into the arms of his special person a few minutes ago.

Huge thanks to all who kept an eye open for him or sent best wishes. Also to the family who rang to let us know he had been in their paddock and to the owners of Park Farms for their help and understanding.

Extra special thanks to the fantastic charity Drone To Home for their assistance .

Shame on the scammers who tried to impersonate them.

URGENT. LOST DOG

Larry has slipped his collar and is running loose.

Last seen at Park House Farm Layer Marney CO5 9UH

If you are in the area and spot Larry PLEASE don’t approach him as he is very nervous and will bolt.

The walk route altered to avoid the flooded meadows but the weather was kind until the end of the walk.
