Sue took Susie to the Vet this morning for her vaccination booster. She was a very good girl, fine with two dogs she met and loved travelling in the car. :) She is a very sweet girl and made us smile this afternoon to see her asleep in the kitchen run, stretched out with legs in the air! :))

We had lots of help for walks so everyone went out twice. Our three new lads, Nick, Sully and Brandy all walk well on the lead. If you are looking for a very tall, dark handsome lad all three of them fit the bill!

Rosie took Saddle off to the park again this afternoon. He did well and came back quite tired....for about ten minutes! I saw the results of Saddle and Roy's visit to the office yesterday. :) Wondered why most things were not where they were the day before! :)))

Sara is finally back at home after spending the last few weeks in hospital. So pleased for her. :) She is hoping to pop in on Saturday to see the lovely bench she had in memory of her Charlie. Xx

Special hugs go to our regular volunteers Lucy and Declan tonight. Both had to leave early today due to not feeling well. Xxx

We have some new lodgers...a birds nest has appeared in the metal box at the back of the old big gate! Sure the chickens won't mind if we share their meal worms with them :) More Daybreaks babies! :))))

Xxx

A busy day as usual at Daybreaks - plenty of calls, visitors and volunteers - just fab!

After taking Roy and Saddle into the run first thing, I thought they could spend some time in the office whilst we finished cleaning..... well - they LOVED it!!!!

Despite giving them a pigs ear each to keep them occupied, they decided to raid everywhere else!!!!!!

Totally my fault for giving them the temptation so I just can't be mad with them as they are so adorable too..... Please someone - if you have a home for two fun loving criminals - these are your boys..... give us a call on 0121 782 7702.

A little cooler today :) We had lots of walkers, so our residents enjoyed morning and afternoon walks. Thanks everyone.

We had three new arrivals Sully, Brandy and Nick. They are very handsome boys! They were all a little stressed on their arrival but they enjoyed their baths, especially Sully who looked especially happy with all the extra attention from Lucy and Blaise. :)

Nick came in without a pet name. We asked Ruth if she wanted to name him and she came up with Nick. Thought she might want something nice to do as she was at the office in Sheldon trying to tidy up for an inspection! :)

Thanks to Lucy for taking the new lads photos. :)

We are keeping everything crossed for Sara tonight as she has been told she may be able to finally escape the hospital tomorrow. It's been a very difficult time for her and we miss her help at the kennels very much. Xxx

Whooahhh it has been nuts and I've just looked at the clock - where has the morning gone? The family reserving Molly came in to see her and I have spent a lot of time helping with information in preparation for them taking her. I have homed the lovely Red (now called Peach) and met the lovely family who have just reserved Annie. We had a visit from Jack's owner who tells us he is doing great too.

I visited my friend Sharon in York yesterday who adopted Angel from us when we were based at Top Hat Kennels and who also adopted Max a stray brought to us in 2006 so it was lovely to see Max again.... sadly Angel already has her wings. Sharon donated a paddling pool which has been filled with water and Rory and Susie have spent the morning playing with all the toys and the water and have now crashed out.

Luckily I had the help of Angie and Yvonne for cleaning out - thanks so much both. Yvonne has been helping with the visitors and finally the dogs are going to go out on short walks due to the heat. If you are at a loss of what to do on a Bank Holiday lovely afternoon - why not pop up and take one for a short walk...... x

What a fab day... Well I thought I would be billy no mates this morning for cleaning, but had 3 lovely helpers turn up... Which helped us get done quicker, so we managed to start morning walks putting "cool coats" on all the hounds before it got to hot....
The lovely Duke went off to his forever home, he looked so pleased choosing a toy to take. He gave me lots of snuggles in the office before leaving. Good luck.
Lorna had a few bathing, with some very reluctant hounds at first, but as soon as they were in the bath, they loved it...
It was a busy day for run bookings.... Please ensure you watch your dogs in the heat and don't exercise them in the heat of midday...
We didn't do afternoon walks as it was way to hot, so the boys and girls were got out every half hour for toilet breaks.
Thanks to everyone today for donations and help.... We really appreciate it... X

What a lovely day! The Sun really does exist!

Ashley went out first thing this morning to spend a few days with two of our lovely volunteers. :)) It sounds as though he is being a good boy so far!

It was fantastic to see Molly reserved. She has waited such a long time. She had a lovely time playing with her new family in the sand run. :))

Thank you to the families who came in and groomed all the dogs today, they loved the extra attention. :)

Thanks to everyone for everything they do to help our Greyhounds find their forever homes. Xxx

I wasn't a lonely soul today! Was lovely to see Ruth back from her hols and we had some volunteers in too so the boys & girls could have walks. It was a nice warm, dry day too which was a bonus.

The lovely Sophie went off to her new her this afternoon, wishing her and her new family all the best. Then it was handsome Tony's turn to go out on trial with pretty Nina, fingers crossed things work out for them. We had some viewings too, all have gone away to think about things and let us know. It is a huge commitment to take one of our lovely Greys into your home, so it is always best to consider every aspect before taking the plunge.

With Sophie gone, and Ruby Rebel departing last week, we decided to pair up the "ones left behind", so we muzzled Rory and Molly and popped them in the run together. After a while, Rory decided to lie down, and Molly had us in stitches as she worked so hard to try and get him to play! She barked at him, play bowed, kept dashing around but bless him, he was having none of it - lying there looking up at her with an expression that said "women!!!". xx

Many thanks for the donations of bedding and duvets received today, most welcome.

Thanks for everyone's help today, much appreciated.

The Bank Holiday weekend is upon us, so let's hope that some red signs appear meaning some more of our beautiful boys & girls will soon be heading off to a new life.

Whatever you're doing this weekend - enjoy!

Angie xx

Well the rain yesterday was..... err.... very wet!!!!! The Daybreaks kids and the brave weather warrior volunteers all sampled the downpours - I am so grateful to all who turned up despite the conditions. The underbed heating was switched back on and the tumble dryer was well used and the residents were coated yesterday evening just for extra comfort.

Today has been so much nicer - almost t-shirt weather at times - and along with our Thursday army of fabulous volunteers, we were joined by 3 volunteers from Network Rail who enjoyed doing the health checks on Rory, Roy and Saddle.

Tony has spent most of the day in the office with a very pretty little greyhound called Nina - shhhhhhhushhhh but fingers crossed - if they continue to get on he may just have his forever home.......... we will keep you posted x

It was great to have Ruth back from her holiday today. :))

Last week was quite a challenge with returnees Saddle and Roy, Ashley coming into the kennels and hearing of the possibility of another returnee. Knowing we have so many Greyhounds on our waiting list and having no space for them sometimes can be overwhelming. :(

Our wonderful Doggies always cheer us up...Horse changed his name to Mule this afternoon! He had gone out for a wallk but had decided he didn't want to walk forward or backward and wouldn't move! Lucy called us from in the Lane and Ruth went out armed with treats to tempt him to come home! He is a real character. :))

Thanks so much to everyone for their help today, especially to Adam who supplied us with homemade shortbread which was still warm!

Well the weather forecast for lots of rain today was completely wrong!:) It was dry for morning and afternoon walks. :)

Thanks so much to Rosie for taking Saddle and Roy to the park this afternoon. They were good boys and enjoyed their break from the kennels. :)

A big thank you to Ella and Rio's family who very kindly donated lots of boxes of goodies including sardines for the dogs and cans of pop for the volunteers. So kind of you. Xxx

It was Bob's Birthday today, so there was lots of cake around!! Happy Birthday Bob. Don't know what we would do without you! Xxxxxx

Told Foxy his Mommy is coming home tonight! We are looking forward to having Ruth back with us....hope she brings some warm sunshine with her!

Thanks so much to everyone for their help today. :))

Xxx
