We had two new arrivals today Jimmy and Jen. Jimmy is a very tall handsome boy who loves a cuddle and Jen a very pretty tall girl! They both had a nice bath on their arrival and went on their first walk with us this afternoon. We have two more girls arriving tomorrow. :))

Thanks to everyone who helped out today. It was lovely to see Jackie, Cliff and their lad Billy...still think he and Earl looked very good walking together! :))

Its Daybreaks 11th Birthday party on Sunday, please, please come along and help us celebrate! If you could spare a tin of sardines our residents would be very grateful; they especially enjoy them in tomato sauce! :)))
Thanks so much. Xxx

Well what a lovely day, quite quiet but the dogs enjoyed lots of fuss and walks. Luckily the rain held off so no one got wet.

Lovely Toffy new owners came in to see her and took her for some one on one time in the run (anyone who knows Toffy, knows what a character she is).

Coffey also had a visitor and hopefully have his forever home very soon if things work out over the next few days.

We had lots of visits from people just popping in to say hi and also buy food, so extra cuddles were handed out to all our current residents.

I managed to take Tess stitches out from her neuter so hopefully she feels a little more comfortable now, she is finally going off to her forever home next Saturday with her two new furless sisters and the cat called Seek. x

Our beautiful Dez went home today....even the wee he left in the office didn't put his new family off adopting him! :)) He has a very pretty new Greyhound sister to share his life with too. We will miss his lovely face around the kennels but so very happy for him. Xx

Little Jess (Rosie) came in today for a bath. She was unable to have a bath when she first arrived with us due to just being neutered. She was a very soft, fluffy girl afterwards. Thanks to Lorna for the pamper. Jess had the pleasure of bathing two sixteen month old very pretty staffie sisters....wow, they were a lively couple even a half hour race around the sand run didn't seem to wear them out! :)))x

After having a few days off it was great to meet our two newest arrivals, Sheila and Dyson. They are both very cute.

Thanks so much to everyone for their help today. A special thank you to Crofty and Darcys two young sisters who made little peanut butter sandwiches for all the dogs, they helped me give them out. Thank you girls so very kind of you both.

Xxx

It was a much cooler day at Daybreaks today - something we were all grateful for!

I thought I was seeing double this morning when I brought Nifty & Sheila out of their kennel - they are virtually twins!! Good job Nifty is a bit bigger - at least you can tell them apart that way! Sheila went off with Ruth first thing to be speyed, and bless Nifty - he did miss her during the day.

Our more energetic residents had a play in the sand run this afternoon, whilst the rest enjoyed a lovely walk down the lane. Benny was particularly fun to watch in the run - he delighted in jumping up and selecting his own toys from the toy box!! He wouldn't play with the ones I threw for him, just the ones he had chosen for himself bless him!

Ruth brought back a lovely load of duvets, and a lovely couple came in with a huge donation of towels so our stocks are topped up for the moment - however, we are always grateful for donations as we go through so much stuff during the course of a week.

Ruth took Benny for his booster and brought the pretty Sheila back on the return trip. Sheila tottered through the gate, and Ruth tucked her in on her bed all comfy and cosy. We have put Nifty in a separate kennel tonight to allow Sheila some space and a bit of peace whilst she begins to recuperate.

Dyson is such a pretty little thing, and stands patiently to have her eye drops in. She is also the spitting image of Tess and with them both wearing yellow bandanas, it was another case of seeing double for me during the day!!!

Thank you to those that came along today to help out, and I will sign off with my usual Friday wish - that the weekend brings a new forever home for at least one of our boys & girls.

Angie

Apologies for a lack of the Daybreaks Diary updates but it has been a very busy week. We have kindly allowed Kate to take some annual leave and we are noticing the difference!

With the arrival of the beautiful Sheila and Dyson on Tuesday, Dyson was swiftly taken to Fivelands for her spey on Wednesday and it is Sheila's turn today. Whilst at the vets, Dyson had her eyes checked as they were a little ulcerated and red and she has been diagnosed with chronic superficial keratitis. This is now being treated with eye drops and will be rechecked next week. Wednesday saw Ellie off to her new home with one of our volunteers - yay!

Roger delivered the newsletter yesterday and if you are currently on our mailing list you should be receiving your copy very soon - thank you to Jo and her family who love the job of enveloping, labeling and posting them for me. If you are not on our mailing list and wish to be, just email me at ruth.boswell@rgtperrybarr.co.uk or if you are registered on this site, you can click your mail preferences to receive this electronically.

Yesterday we spent the day catching up doing health checks, extra grooming with the fabulous help of Jess, and Tommy had his stitches removed. We had a visit from a class of pupils from Hazeloak School again who enjoyed taking the dogs into the run and grooming them - all under the strict supervision of their teachers - we made sure non were smuggled out! Tess wasn't so impressed with the day as it was her turn to be bathed!

We have been joined by Courtney this week on school work experience who is really enjoying it and goes home each day telling her mum which dogs she wants to adopt! Courtney is sadly one of the last few accepted placements as we are now restricted to volunteers over the age of 18.

We have a kind donation of duvets to collect later - if you have any spare and wish to donate them, please give us a call. If you can drop them off, we would be extremely grateful.

Well I must be on my way to the vets with Sheila.... I am taking Benny also as he is due his booster.... thank goodness for Angie and Mary who are cleaning out for me this morning! xx

Another very hot day!

The kennels are cooler with the air con, fans and blankets on the skylights. :))

Thanks to everyone who took the dogs for short walks along the lane today. They all looked very fetching in their cool coats. :)) Just need some for the volunteers now!

It was brilliant to see little Rosie and Ella go home. Thank you so much to their new families for giving them both a forever home x. Fingers crossed some of our longer stayers will get that chance too :)))

Daybreaks is an absolute sun trap... great if you want a tan but not so great when you are a furbaby! As the sun comes through the skylights ì climbed on to the roof and put sheets over and although this darkened the blocks it really helped. We have one air con unit and big fans everywhere too in attempts to keep the greys cool.

We have the lovely Casey back for a week. His foster mum and dad were sad to leave him but we get Casey cuddles and he will be fine!

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR DOG IN A VEHICLE EVEN FOR A FEW MINUTES IN THIS HEAT. SEVERAL YEARS AGO AN OWNER LOST THEIR GREY BECAUSE OF THIS. WITHIN SECONDS THE SITUATION CAN BECOME FATAL. :-(
