An early start to the day today as Ruth took Henry off to the Vet for his castrate operation. Henry wasn't impressed waiting in the run watching all his pals have their lovely breakfasts!!

We have a full house at the minute, but again today lots & lots of volunteers, so all the boys & girls had 2 good walks again. Fortunately, the weather held and no one got wet today! Our French students gave the cat room a lovely spring clean, and we've had windows cleaned, leaves swept and floors mopped! Sometimes with so many volunteers, it gets difficult to give everybody something to do!!

This afternoon was very sad as the lovely Wilson was returned after being in a home for 7 years. He is a very handsome, friendly old fella, and we gave him a lovely warm bath after which, swaddled in towels & blankets, he fell asleep on the treatment room floor - bless him.

Thank you to everyone who came along to help out today, and sorry it was standing room only!!

We have viewings booked over the weekend so lets hope that some of our residents strike lucky and find their forever homes.

Tomorrow is "The Daybreaks Factor" show night, so looking forward to it! You can still get a ticket on the door, you'll have a great night out and be raising funds to help Wilson and all the other Daybreaks residents - hope to see you there.

Well what a very wet day! Thanks so much to everyone who helped to walk the dogs this morning. Thankfully it was a litttle better this afternoon. :)

Benny went off to the vets for his X-rays on his paw....he hadn't come back when I left this evening. Fingers crossed all will be ok. His kennel mate Hero missed him being around today. :(

New girls Kara and Mary are settling well, they are both so gorgeous!

Nifty's toe is doing ok, but still looks sore. He is such a happy, friendly boy; wish so much he will soon find his special forever home.

Ah I love all your kennel hounds! I emailed Ruth yesterday about a donation of coats, collars, leads, sardines etc and she is currently seeing who maybe able to collect them from me in Edgbaston. I really wish I could bring them to the kennels if it wasn't for the dreaded work! :-( I really hope the dogs enjoy using them and the coats and snoods keep them warm at night and I hope I get to visit Daybreaks one day. You all do an amazing job! Amanda Swinton x

Poor Benny is still having problems with his paw so he is booked to go back to Fivelands tomorrow to have further investigation.
The two new girls Kara and Mary are adorable but both have decided coats are not for them!!!! I have just been back up to the kennels as Kara had decided to wear hers like a skirt, managing to get her paws through the neck hole!!!! It's a good job we have cameras at the kennels to keep an eye on them! The temperatures are definitely dropping so if your heating goes off at night, your grey is going to need keeping warm so an extra blanket or fleecy coat will do the trick.
If anyone can find it in their hearts to give a home to an 11 year old boy who is being returned on Friday after over 7 years in a home, please give me a call as soon as possible...... he is being returned through no fault of his own. All he needs is a quiet home for the rest of his retirement.

We had lots of visitors today :) It was lovely to see Dexter and Jack, they both looked gorgeous after their baths but don't really think they were all that keen...Jack in particular didn't look very impressed when it was his turn! Many thanks to Shani and Ken for the donation of Pilchards for our Daybreaks residents. Very kind of you. xx

Lovely Florence and her handsome cousin Barney came in to use the run. Toby joined them for a race around. Thanks so much for the sardines! :) Thinking of Klaire; Florence's Mom. She had to say Goodbye to Mr Darcy one of her cats this afternoon. I am sure Florence will miss him too. xx

Pete finished the doors today, they look great! Thanks Pete. They just need an extra coat of paint. :)

Now the nights are getting chilly, if you need a fleece to keep your Greyhound warm this winter we had a delivery today, so lots to choose from. :)

We visited kennels today as our boys Dexter and Jack had a bath, it was so lovely to see Kate and Jess and meet some of the volunteers, Nifty and Benny stole my heart, but every single one of the dogs we met were fantastic, so friendly and loving, hope they all get their perfect loving homes soon. Thank you for making us feel so welcome as usual xxxxx

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!

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
