The Greys Matter – Issue 1

Welcome, to this our first issue of ‘The Greys Matter’ and we are very excited to bring it to you. In this issue we have a number of topics on behaviour.  Find out how Nick got his chickens and greyhounds to get along.  Alexis has written a piece on introducing a new greyhound into your home.

You can also follow the remarkable story of Possum. This drama touched the hearts of everyone who followed her progress on Facebook. Find out how her carers’ dedication has changed her life.

    Have had a quick look and will read the whole thing later but it looks greyt. Of course, couldn’t resist reading Possum’s story (even though I’ve been following it from the start) and it still brings a tear to my eye.

    Thank you for the Greys Matter newsletter. The very first sentence sums up my feelings perfectly…i.e. … “once you have met this wonderful breed there is no turning back”.

    It’s great to know that people are as obsessed with greyhounds as I am and they’re working so hard to give these beautiful dogs a better life – the story of Possum being a case in point. I hope the person responsible for neglecting her so badly was “appropriately dealt with” and will never be allowed to keep another animal.

    I was interested in the item on integrating greys with chickens as it reflects so closely our experiences of going through that process. Greys and ex-battery rescue hens now share
    the garden – and sometimes the house! – with no worries at all.

    Please keep up your marvellous work.

    Very best wishes.
