38 hounds and their hardy families braved near freezing conditions for a beautiful walk along the river at Woodbridge. Kennel dog George (Blue Blazer) came along and managed really well for such a shy little youngster. Many thanks to the Tea Hut for making us so welcome after the walk There are many more photos on our Facebook page
It may be a rainy, miserable day today but nothing could dampen Higgins (Oh Hurricane) spirits on this, his going home day. He was so excited to see his family when they came to collect him. He has come to know them quite well because they have visited him a few times. He went with much love from us all, some chunks of beef from his Auntie Linda and his packed lunch. Good luck Higgy Wiggy we hope to see you again soon.xx
So sad to report more bad news. We have learned that Tony whose racing name was Seaglass Phantom has crossed the bridge. Bless his beautiful sweet soul he was only just 5 years old. A real gentleman of a dog who deserved so much more time with his family. They are devastated by his loss and our hearts go out to them. This is their lovely tribute to him. “We unfortunately had to say goodbye to Tony yesterday. He had been diagnosed with a blood disorder in May. After numerous treatments at our local vets and Dick Whites in Newmarket he decided He was too good for this world.He was an amazing dog. He was only with us a short while but had taken over our hearts, beds and seatee. Thank you for letting him into our lives. “ It is us who must thank you for giving him so much love and a wonderful home.May his beautiful soul fly high and free. God bless you Tony.xx
Happy news for happy Jack (Dillymore Jack), he went home today with lots of love from us all and a tear or two from his beloved Auntie Linda. We will all miss him like mad especially as he has been with us since he was a tiny puppy and we have watched him grow into the affectionate cuddle monster we all adore.Stay happy Jack. xxxx
Fantastic news for the lovely Manny oh Manhatten). He went home with his forever family on Wednesday. His brothers Higgins, Tommy (T..J) and George are still waiting. They are smashing young boys and we are sure they won’t have to wait for too much longer.
We have had heart warming news from Bubbly Blaze. Here is what his family have sent us. So proud of Blaze (aka Wag-a-Leg! asks for fusses!). He has been through a lot for a little greyhound boy Over a year ago he fell ill with a very nasty bug. Messed his tummy badly. Then, whilst continuing a long recovery, two months ago he had a massive stroke and was at first terrified at the time as he couldn’t find his legs or see out of his right eye! It was a difficult time as Blaze was confused and distant and very wobbly. However he was so good as he soon learned to to walk better, easing off the circling left (better vision!) and even listening as to when to step down each step without falling. Such a brave trouper! Now bounces along happily on his walks Tum troubles unfortunately returned due the stroke, but meds helping recover and his appetite is huge! This pic is ‘is my dinner ready?’ He has three meals a day and knows exactly when haha! Just love him
