Busy and successfull week end

This has been a very busy but satisfying week end. First of all Serena has completed her trial period and found her forever home, while Daisy has gone to a home and started her trial period. Also Biddy has started with a new foster carer, a young lady who wants to do lots to help us. Furthermore, Scotty, a Cairns Terrier X who has been with us for a long time and needed a special home, appears to have found that home in Coffs Harbour, so on Saturday we had a long drive up to Taree to meet his new Mum and Dad. And what happened on the way back? Yes you guessed it, we picked up two more greyhounds from the Kurri Kurri pound, Rusty a brindle boy and Oscar a black boy. We will have their pictures up as soon as poss.

More good news is that we are having an excellent response to our request for foster carers and hopefully within the next week several more greyhounds will be in a new foster home or even adopted home. So a big thank you to all of you who have called in to help.

George is the name for new boy

Monty, Spot and George give us three new names and no two people can agree on any one name!! So the chairman has the casting vote and as we have a faithful, old George who will not be with us much longer, I would like to call him George.

Name for ‘New Boy’

So far we have Ike, Henry, Oscar and Monty as suggestions and thank you to Jilke, Cindi, Demander and Mechelle for sending them in. Is there any support for any of these or further suggestions? We must name the poor boy soon as we can’t keep saying ‘oy you over there’!!

An insight into greyhound racing

When our website was launched recently, we decided we wanted it to be a ‘happy’ one. However, we also feel we should let the public know what happens to many greyhounds in the industry, so that you can make your own decision on whether or how you want to help the greyhounds. There are always greyhounds coming into the Pounds in Sydney, cast offs no longer of any use to the trainers, too slow, too old, etc and if we could find more homes or foster homes, then we would be able to take more greyhounds that come into the Pounds and save their lives, as the alternative is that they are euthanaised by the Pounds. Beautiful creatures that have only lived a fraction of their normal life span and not always in good conditions.

Adopt or foster a greyhound, save a life and get to know how social and affectionate these greyhounds really are.

Life begins at 10

Further to our reports of Remy and Tassie, here are two photos to show that life begins at 10 for them, running off leash in Jindabyne, where it might be cold but that is no problem when you are rugged up and running at 40mph, or close to it!!Tassie

Two new greyhounds

Today, Saturday 4th July, we received two new greyhounds from the Pound. They are both beautiful, one is a white red fawn and the other is a white blue fawn and their details will appear as soon as we can get some photos taken. The only problem is that they will have to go into kennels as we do not have any room at home, so if anyone can foster them or one of them we would be most grateful, as kennel bills are mounting up.
We also have to thank Forestville Printing for helping us with some new business cards.

Oldies go to Jindabyne

On Tuesday, 1st July, I drove Remy and Tassie, our two oldest greyhounds, to a wonderful new home in Jindabyne. Lois, their new owner, had recently lost a much loved greyhound and Remy’s ears reminded her of her beloved Rusty. So Remy’s big ears at last did him a big favour!! And one for Tassie as well!

Northern Beaches take to greyhounds

This week end Paddy, the beautiful Blue Boy, has gone on a two week trial in Collaroy Plateau, yet another greyhound to hopefully find a home on the Northern Beaches. Most of the greyhound racing action takes place in the western parts of Sydney and it is only recently that people on the Northern Beaches have got to know the greyhound and what wonderful pets they make, after their racing days are over or perhaps never started. Balgowlah, Cromer, Killarney Heights, Collaroy Plateau, so what is the next suburb near the surf to realise what they are missing? However, it is not only the Northern Beaches that are wanting greyhounds as this week we are off to Jindabyne with a couple of oldies. So if you are reading this, keep the good news coming.
