Many thanks to Tesco Community Champion Lyn Rabett and all of the staff and customers at Tesco Highwoods for making us so welcome today. We took along kennel dogs The Doctor, Chilli and Casey who were shown the ropes by our Greyhound Ambassadors Spring, Davey and Joe. Thanks to everyone who took the time to chat to us and for the generous donations.

It’s been another busy week at kennels. Grace went home, Blue came back (he would prefer a family that doesn’t work full time) Chilli didn’t go home so is available again, Dear old Revie had a couple of viewers, Leo went for a walk at Alton Water and we held a meet and greet session at the Co-op in Hadleigh with kennel dogs Seb and Fabia. Both boys were so well behaved and made a good impression on local MP James Cartlidge who visited our stand. Thanks to our Greyhound Ambassadors Spring, Troy, Roy, Toby and Teddy, to the staff and management of the Co-op and to the generous public who gave donations and took the time to chat to us and our dogs.

It with very heavy hearts we have to give the tragic news that Tudor passed away earlier this week, while under anaesthetic as he was being neutered. He was a happy, affectionate and adorable boy, a kennel favourite who had finished racing and had a lovely home waiting for him.
Born in April 2015, Tudor (Tudor Dynasty) spent much of his puppyhood at Dillymore, where he was much loved by all who looked after him. His racing owners kept him at home for a while, and he was raced at kennels close to them where they walked him regularly, and they are devastated by his loss.
Our thoughts are all at Dillymore who cared for him, his racing owners, and with the couple who were waiting to take Tudor home. They have bravely decided to go ahead with their plans to adopt a greyhound, and they will be taking Nemo home in a few weeks.
The vet practice says that Tudor suffered a heart attack while under anaesthetic, that this is an extremely rare occurrence, and in spite of all their best efforts to save him, they couldn’t revive him. All at the vets are heartbroken.
Sleep tight Tudor, we’ll miss your waggy tail and sweet nature, and you won’t be forgotten by anybody who knew you.
Wow! What a welcome we received at Morrisons in Dovercourt today. A big thank you to Cally for allowing us to visit, John from the Customer Services team for looking after us all day and to all staff for making us feel so welcome. What a team.
What generous customers too. You donated an absolutely amazing sum of £347.99. Our heart felt thanks to all who contributed and to those who took the time to chat to us and our hounds Spring, Jodie, Jill, Missy and Dart.
We have had a fantastic day at Tesco Copdock today. Kennel dogs Casey and Dart joined us along with of our fine ambassador Spring. Many thanks to Mandy and the Tesco team for making us so welcome and to all of Tesco’s customers who stopped to chat and made such generous donations.
