Our September fund raising walk Update Sunday 12th September at 11am. The Affleck Arms, Brookside, Dalham CB8 8TG. The owner of the Affleck Arms in Dalham has generously offered to donate £5 for every Greyhound attending this beautiful walk near Newmarket. The walk will last approx 1hour 45 minutes with refreshments provided en-route but there will be a shorter route of approx. 25 minutes for those unable to walk that far. When we return to the pub a hot dog and drink will be provided for all. Do come along and take part in either of the walks if you possibly can.
Many thanks to Lauren and all at Jimmy’s Farm who made us so welcome when we visited yesterday and to those who stopped to say hello. Kennel dog Dillymore Jack came along and behaved extremely well enjoying so much love and attention as well as a bag of Quavers! Teddy Bear Matty also arrived for his first official engagement as a trainee Ambassador, Matty has come on leaps and bounds since going home.

Some photos from the fair at Bentley where kennel dogs Mac (Droopy’s Mac) and Master (Young Master) had their first outing since arriving at Dillymore. Master found it a little overwhelming to start with but soon enjoyed lots of fuss from the public. Mac walked nicely on his lead was happy to have a fuss but was taken aback to say the least when he saw other breeds of dogs, bless him he needs to get out more!
Many congratulations to Kieren and Jo on their recent marriage.Ring bearers Jose and Lily did a great job and managed to deliver the rings safely. Our thanks go to Kieren and Jo for kindly accepting donations to ourselves in lieu of presents and to all of their friends and family for the generous amount given. All the very best to you Kieren and Jo and thank you very much xx
We have been to Paws on the Green, an event organised by Rose Builders in Lawford today. As well as our fantastic Ambassadors kennel dogs Jet (Whizzy Jet) and Dudley (Bubbly Dudley) came along. Both boys did extremely well given it was their first day out at such an event.Arthur was there for his first event as a Greyhound Ambassador and did us all proud by coming 3rd in the most handsome dog competition.
We have had news of Wonder (Balinvana Wonder)She is now called Wendy has settled in well and has made friends with her house mate Bouncer who is looking after her and is showing her the ropes. She has discovered stairs but only how to climb up and not down, bless her she had to be carried back down in a blanket! She has also realised just how beautiful she is having discovered a mirror she spends ages admiring her image.
We have organised our first walk of 2021, on 13th August. Barring a total lock down we absolutely will not be cancelling this one! All meet at the Community Hall Stutton at 7pm for an evening walk to Alton Water or for those who prefer a shorter walk around the local footpaths of Stutton. Tea, Coffee and Cakes will be served in the hall at the end of the walk. We just can’t wait to see you all. We will also be taking part in a fundraising walk on September 12th but full details of this walk hosted by one of our generous supporters who has pledged a £5 donation for every dog taking part will appear shortly.
It is with great sadness we have to announce that following a short illness Spring (Gulvins Luck) has crossed the bridge aged 12 and a half.Spring was the sweetest of dogs, popular with everyone. She attended many of our Meet and Greet sessions and enjoyed our monthly walks.Always immaculately dressed and with impeccable manners she was a truly wonderful ambassador for her fellow Greyhounds.As well as being an ambassador Spring also helped the shy dogs with her calm and gentle way, she reassured them that the big wide world was nothing to fear.Our hearts go out to Springs family and we thank them for the wonderful retirement Spring enjoyed with them, we know she was loved beyond measure.The horrible thing about this awful pandemic is that we haven’t seen our precious retired dogs for so long and sadly won’t see some of them again, it’s heart breaking.Sleep well dear Spring and thank you for all you did for us and your fellow Greyhounds. You will never be forgotten. xx
