We have just heard the sad news that May has crossed the bridge.
May was the sweetest girl who along with her best friend Tony joined us on many of our walks.
Below is her family’s loving tribute to her.
‘May was our first greyhound and what a happy and mischievous little girl. She was so good from day one, a perfect greyhound ambassador. She loved her treats and her comforts. We miss her so much and also her brother Tony is lost without her’
May your happy little soul fly high and free sweetheart. You were always so happy to see everyone. xx
Kennels are in need of some duvets. If you have any spare they would be most grateful. Kennels are manned 24/7 but the best time to drop them off is any day between 10am and 12 noon or 2pm and 4pm. or perhaps you could bring them along to one of our walks if that is more convenient for you.
We have had a lovely update from little Mo’s family.
You may remember Mo was featured in the Homer magazine because she had to overcome great shyness and was a nervous wreck when she arrived at Dillymore.
What a difference 12 months with a loving, caring and patient family has made to this little girl.
Her family now say she has come such a long way and although still wary in some situations she loves a fuss and her personality is really shining through, in fact she is a little rascal when the mood takes her but they love her all the more for it.
Understandably many would have overlooked little Mo, she didn’t exactly show well but thankfully her family saw beyond that shy, scared, exterior, in fact they wouldn’t even consider another dog and we will be forever grateful to them for that.
Below are some photos of Mo and her best friend Beano who has played no small part in building Mo’s confidence.
We have had news of Blossom who went to live with the lovely Buick.
They are getting on very well and Blossom has really settled in. She is good on her lead, great with other dogs and loves her food!
She is however an early riser! We will blame her kennel family for that, they start their days very early. We are sure Blossom will learn how to have a lay in very soon, we all know they love their sleep!
It is with much sadness we have to report that Toby (Rethany Russo) has crossed the bridge.
His family have written a lovely tribute to him which we share with you below.
“Toby was a hound who always gave 100%. This was true in his racing life and in retirement. He was the forever teenager. As long as he was with his family everything we might want to do was a brilliant idea as far as he was concerned. Total enthusiasm.
Walks in all weathers, discussing his rights to after dinner treats, keeping us all safe from the terrors of the world A more loyal, loving and happy hound we may never meet again.
Thank you for introducing us to Toby so we could share many years of joy and ear rubs”
It is us who must thank Toby’s family for giving him such a happy and loving home.
Volunteer Sue has fond memories of Toby. She took him along to his home check with her and in his eagerness to explore he flew up the garden and landed in the pond!
Sleep well sweetheart, enjoy lots of treats and ear rubs on your side of the bridge and stay away from the water!!! xxx
