It was much warmer today...well warm enough for the snow to disappear!

The residents were very happy to be able to go on walks along the lane again and we had visitors to use the run.

Ruth took Danny off to the vet first thing this morning for his neutering operation. He was very bouncy when he came back, you wouldn't think he had just had an operation! :))

We have lovely Christmas cards for sale at the kennels if you still need some. :) x

We are starting to get everything together ready for our Greyhounds to have a Christmas break from the kennels. Thank you so much to everyone who has offered to have an extra guest in their home for a few days over the festive season. So kind of you. Xx

Thanks so much to all our helpers today. :))

Xxx

Blurrrrgghhhh!!!! What a wet, cold day - however it was cheered up with lots of warm greyhound cuddles especially time with my current favourites.... Benny and Vera.
Spent a lot of the day dealing with post - thank you so much to everyone who sent generous donations for Christmas - it really is appreciated.

The Daybreaks kids are tucked up so it's time for me to take Maggie home so she can empty the toy box. She is the most adorable little girl, so happy - please someone give her a wonderful home again......

Our team of helpers today helped clear the drive of ice and Foxy and Joe no longer get to do Bambi on Ice impressions!!!! TTFN x

I am so lucky to be able to run Daybreaks!!!! Had a great day - made lovely warm breakfasts for the kids, whilst Kate, Kirsty , Gail and Adam cleaned and made beds. The Pet Blood Bank arrived but it was sooo busy with the phone line first thing because of people cancelling or checking. Due to the paths being so icy, our hardy team walked the greys around the run and then they all were groomed and had play time. I caught up on emails, paperwork and had a trip to the post office to send all the orders of calendars and Christmas Cards and then we celebrated Sara's 40th Birthday! Skye, Bolt, Vera, Maggy, Lexi and Benny all gave blood making them official lifesavers!
Health checks were done and they have all had their tea and now it is time for bed! Their fleecy coats are on, wall and underbed heaters on and it is time to go home and defrost ourselves! Luckily I live on site but thank you to all those who manage to get to the kennels to help despite the conditions. Be safe everyone x

Ooh, it was very chilly at the kennels today, but inside the blocks it was nice and warm. :))

A huge thank you to Yvonne, Shirley, Bella and Lewis for coming in to look after the doggies today. We were able to do morning and afternoon walks and lots of snow clearing in between! Our poor Christmas tree had fallen over under the pressure of the snow but is upright again. :)

Little Mary had great fun chasing snowballs around while waiting for her breakfast this morning. Such a happy girl!

The Pet Blood Bank are due to visit us tomorrow. They called today to confirm they will still be attending. If you are bringing your Greyhound along to the kennels to donate blood tomorrow please be aware the car park at the kennels is still quite snowy, so please take care.

Thank you so much Lisa (planned) and Lorna (unplanned) for covering the kennels today and looking after the ‘kids’ especially with the snow whilst I am away.

I rely heavily on the support and dedication of volunteers on a continuous basis and I’m so grateful to ALL who help at Daybreaks.

I have been enjoying a most fabulous Christmas present of a weekend away from dear friends... I am a very lucky girl xxx

Well that was a very strange day we had. Trouble getting in, kennels deep in snow.
It flew by and before we knew it, it's was dinner time for the boys and girls. Thanks to those that made it in today, in such bad weather.... On opening the kennels, all hounds were snug and warm.... On seeing the snow, they all went a bit looney.... We couldn't take on walks, so they all spent time being walked round the snow run, which was a foot deep.... You could tell some had never had the snow experience before, as the pirouette and danced and played in the wonderful white stuff, before heading back to there lovely warm, underbed heated kennels. All hounds were left fast asleep, whilst we tried to re-dig my car out again from bobs drive. Thanks Lorna for your help.....

Another very chilly day!

A big thank you to everyone who helped look after the Daybreaks residents today. We were a little short on numbers but we managed to give the dogs morning and afternoon walks...Jess got her boyfriend to help us with feeding this afternoon :)) Bless him!

Thanks so much to all the lovely people who brought gifts in for our Greyhounds. So very kind of you. Xxx

I have to say the kennels are full of beautiful boys and girls waiting for their forever homes. They all have their own individual characters and they are all very special. If I was able to have another Greyhound I would find it so hard to choose just one!! :)))

Fingers crossed we don't get too much snow tomorrow so our volunteers can get to the kennels ok.

Well, it's official - Winter has arrived!! What a cold and snowy day it was today - not surprisingly it was very quiet for customers indeed!

Thanks to the stalwart crew of hardy volunteers who came along today, the boys & girls got out for two walks all wrapped up against the cold in their fleecy coats.

We have had so many generous donations of bedding that the bedding store is now something of a disaster area! Sorry Jill and your hard workers who got it all straight recently - just close your eyes as you go past it! With so many dogs and such awful weather though, we do go through an enormous amount of bedding during the course of a week so donations are always most welcome.

The Christmas tree managed to fall over twice again today!! I think we've got poltergeists, as no one was near it on either occasion. The dogs out in the runs for feeding thought it was great fun to have baubles rolling across the floor!!! I've now moved the tree in the hope it can stay upright and intact for the rest of the festive period!

Our newcomers are lovey and were as bright as buttons today. Teddy is a big, strong boy and Holly is a happy little girl. Skye is such a lovely lady, understandably a little stressed at finding herself in a kennel environment again, she loves giving you a snuggle.

Poor Violet managed to split the end of her tail and decorate her kennel walls with blood this afternoon! Fortunately it wasn't too bad and was soon sorted, but she does love to wag that tail so I'm hoping it's ok overnight.

Was lovely to see handsome Caddy who came for a pamper today, not surprisingly he wasn't too impressed with being bathed on such a cold day, but he was well looked after and emerged smelling lovely!

Thanks to all who braved the elements to help out today, hoe you all manage to thaw out this evening. I left the residents sleeping in toasty kennels with the underbed heating on - was almost tempted to tuck myself up for the night there too! Instead, I may well partake of a warming glass of wine!
