It was great to see everyone today after being away on holiday last week. :) So good that so many boys and girls went off to their forever homes while I was away. :)))

Yesterday's three new arrivals, Diva, Henry and Cloud are gorgeous! Diva and Cloud both enjoyed a bath this afternoon.

Jimmy happily went off with his new family this morning. He has a very pretty new sister! Do hope all goes well. Xx

Nifty's paw looks ok...he doesn't seem bothered about it at all. :)

Pete spent the day fitting two new doors to the kennel blocks. Thanks so much for his perseverance and patience. The doors are not a standard size and the door frames are wonky! He has done a fab job and is coming back to finish off tomorrow. x

It was a very strange day with regard to the weather...it looked like the world was about to end when the afternoon walks started but then the sun turned up and it was a very pleasent afternoon!

Xxx

Today was a bit weird, we went from a quiet morning to a hectic afternoon. The lovely Bruce went off to his forever home, it was lovely seeing him go off up the drive wagging his tail. The afternoon saw the arrival of Henry, who is a big lad, with stunning looks and so affectionate and loves his grub, but doesn't travel well in a car, the lovely Diva who is a dainty girl, but very friendly and the handsome young cloud who is only 2.5 years old, who's racing career never really took off. Poor Nifty was a bit of a plonker and somehow has managed to put a claw off if the run and is now sporting a lovely bandage, please someone give him and Benny a home, they both really deserve that couch. All babies were left snoozing and cosy and warm. Good night, sleep tight, have happy dreams of those sofas. Xx

Well we did it!! Endured paint hosed on us, foam zone, which was hilarious especially as Andy fell into it and was absolutely covered, and we did 2 laps so had to endure twice. Great fun. Well done team. Xx

Tonight a team of us are doing the Glow in the Park sponsored 5k event to help raise money to complete the sand run, so..... I have spent all day at the kennels dressed in my outfit ready! This has helped me raise an extra £40 in sponsorship so I am really grateful to everyone who has sponsored us. If you would still like to sponsor, please use the link below.

It has been hectic today with Milo, Maggie and Ollie all going off to their new homes. Toby went off to the roadshow at Melbicks but on return sadly his kennel mate had a go at him so he is on his own in a kennel nursing some bruises.... poor fella - he is such a sweet gentle boy.... I really hope he finds a home soon.
Wish us all luck for tomorrow and roll on Monday when Kate is back from her holiday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, as a novelty for me we almost had more volunteers than dogs today!! At least this guaranteed the boys & girls got two good walks, and we could tackle all those jobs you always put to the back of the queue when you're busy.

Autumn has definitely arrived, the kennels were swept round twice today but the fallen leaves seem to be winning the battle!

It was so lovely to complete the adoption paperwork for the lovely Dusty today, she was so happy to come in to the kennels with her new sister, dispensing kisses to everyone and trotting happily off down the drive after a lovely family homing photo. Her ex kennel mate Nifty seems a bit sad to be on his own yet again - I really cant understand why this fabulous boy is still waiting for his own sofa. He is one of my phone screensavers, along with the lovely Benny. These 2 boys deserve their own forever homes, the sooner the better.

I've had Ruth chained to her sewing machine this afternoon, finishing off the new costumes needed after my last minute changes!! We still have tickets available at the kennels for "The Daybreaks Factor" - please support the cast who have worked so hard to bring you a fun evening's entertainment.

Thank you to the many people who helped out today - our work placements certainly saw that there is more to running a kennels than walking the dogs as I had them cleaning windows, raking leaves and mopping floors!

We have some more of our residents going off to their new homes over the weekend, and more viewings booked. Fingers crossed!

Benny and Hero enjoyed most of the day in the kitchen yesterday getting extra fuss.... Benny is doing great and is now unmuzzled with Louis who is a Border Collie... I am so pleased with him. His stitches in his pad will be removed on Monday.

Dusty went out on trial yesterday and we are keeping everything crossed that things go well - I will keep you posted.

Along with the comments on here and visitors to the kennels, there seems to be a few problems with the recent change of manufacturer of the Burns food. I feed my boys on the Burns and did notice a difference initially but they have adjusted to it and eat well. I have told all those who have voiced concern, to contact Burns and let them know if you have problems as they need to know. As most of you know we also feed Skinners which is also a wheat and gluten free dry food and many greyhounds thrive on this. Any questions - give us a yell at the kennels x
