If anyone is looking for a buddy/big brother for their little lady Grey in my experience the Black boys are fab companions. Even the big black boys like Fat Neck Finn. He is such a gentleman with Nina the Diva. When we have been for a walk he stands and waits for her to have a drink before he will have his. Having eaten his meal first he will lie down near her bowl and wait to see if she leaves him any, drooling (she never does) so he licks the bowl when she has left within an inch of its life. When we come down in the morning she gets so excited she will run by him grabbing him by the back of his neck like a mommy dog to control him, and he lets her, never snaps at her, as leader of the pack I have to do that lol. He lets her have his bed if she wants it and goes and gets in hers which is too small for him really, and waits behind her if any food is being prepared for them. Some black boys are being fostered at the moment, and seem to be confirming what I have noticed about them, so don't wait, snap one up now, they are golden. Also great with another boy hound I have found. Happy Healthy New Year to all. Hoping the coming year will be the best yet for cutting the waiting list for the hounds retiring.

As it is Nicks birthday on 2 Jan, I thought that I would check his horoscope to see what the future may bring...Well it does say that you are at a crossroads in your life and that you will realize a cherished dream!

Upon further reading it says that in particular the initials D, I S and B hold a special significance for you, and that music and singing feature heavily in this area. Travel is also mentioned, possibly journeying about 4 hours by car and meeting lovely people with another dog I think. It's getting a bit hazy now, oh sorry, I'm doing horoscope today, not crystal ball!

He can give confidence to any siblings and would be happy to wear a muzzle when visiting Wales. You know you have the power to transform Nicks life, as you did barneys, it may even be that they will sleep together in a basket and leave the bed free for you!

Oh dear poor Nick, some Greys are a little afraid of children, they can be a little daunting to them at first. Probably better with another hound for company. Wasn't Big Ears coming for Nick and was piped at the post so had the amazing Brandy instead. Maybe he was meant for you after all Big ears??? Fingers crossed his home is out there,

Very sadly Nick's family have decided they will have to return Nick to the kennels. He has become increasingly worried around their young Daughter and they feel he would be much happier In a home without young children. They are devastated things have not worked out for him. We are very grateful to them for giving him a chance and understand completely their reason for his return. I am sure the right home and situation is out there for him. He is staying with one of our lovely friends until the New Year. Xxx

I think jetlucy is right. Most dogs do seem to experience it to a greater or lesser extent. I bought Maggie a soft crate, which really helped settle her down. She loves it and will often leave the room we're in to go and lie in it. It's a good job that we don't offend easily! It has proved really useful though and if we are away from home we take it with us for her to sleep in and she's always carry happy x

If I left the food cupboard open Fat neck Finn wouldn't notice we had left. The only anxiety he gets is being separated from food !!! Sure Nick will improve, he has waited so long for a family of his own it's understandable he doesn't want to be separated at first. He will soon realize you are coming back and not gone for good. xx

Well done Nick! Keep been a good boy. I think most dogs suffer separation anxiety (unlike our cats who just love to see us for good!) But it does get better and I think makes them more loving and loyal. Our jet still gets it abit after 4 years of been with us but we know how to deal with it now and what works but literally could not wish for a better companion, he really is my shadow and always there for a cuddle and to tell secrets too! I dread to think what him and his horse brother would say about me if they could talk! Xxx

BigEars So your wife doesn't fancy a FFP tee shirt. I would willingly buy her one if you did change her mind LOL
Why do you think our last boy we lost a year ago was called "Ollie" as in "another fine mess you got me into" (from Laurel & Hardy) He made the 4th in our household at the time! But he bought such joy to us and the only difference it made with 4 was feeding times took a bit longer to set up .
We all want Nick to find his home but you can do no more and "her indoors must be obeyed" if you want a peaceful life. Obviously my husband didn't LOL but I cannot push my luck at the moment . Thanks for trying xx

Nick came with me today to Elmdon Park. In his typical fashion, he was extremely keen to get out of his kennel and go for a walk. He simply loves being out and having some company. We met some other breeds, who he was very keen to say hello to, but was absolutely fine with when we got there. He only seems to have one gear and it's a fast one! Good job I like a brisk walk! He did help me get up the hill in the park! He's such a great boy and I've got everything crossed for him that this is his week to find his forever home xx

I would just like to support Lady Victoria's comments about Nick & Brandy and Black boys in general. Like Teddy once in a home within a few days they start to blossom and realize this is now what life is all about when you retire. it amazes me how quickly they adapt and respond to love and care after what really is a life in a kennel with a mate, training, and racing. Even faster if you already have a Grey who can show them the ropes lol That's why they are such amazing hounds. I would love to take Nick or Brandy but Fat neck Finn is still being "groomed" by bossy Nina and at the moment I think it may disturb the balance. Like many of you
I have developed a passion for the Black Boys who seem to have to wait longer than the girlies for that "special" home.
Nick has had such a traumatic start to his retirement but managed to confound everyone by recovering. Daybreaks gave him the will to do this, but can do no more. Even my poem for him has not found him a home. If you meet him you will know why we are all so hoping he will be in a forever home with a special present under the tree called "LOVE". Maybe his 5th birthday in January will be his best ever. xxxx

Handsome Nick came out with me, my greyhound and my husband this morning for a walk along the canals. He is a strong boy but he walks very well on a harness. We saw a few other dogs and he behaved much better than my own hound! He really wants to say hello to other breeds and doesn't understand why his bouncing up and down may be intimidating to them! He does make me laugh because on leaving the kennels he was in the back of my car as soon as the door was open just a crack. When we arrived at the canals he was out of the car like a rocket. However on the return journey he had to be lifted in and once in the car, he spent all his time on his feet seeing what was going on. When I pulled up at the kennels and opened his door he lay down and had to be coaxed out and back into his kennel. He is a hound that likes to be out and about. He gets on really well with my hound and she seems to like him too (she's quite fussy who gets her seal of approval and who is permitted to travel with her when her chauffeur is taking her out). He really is a fabulous boy and it truly must be his turn soon xx

As we walked the hounds down Damson Lane this afternoon, somebody asked why Nick hadn’t been homed yet. Nobody had an answer.
Nick is a wonderful example of the breed. I like to sit with him in his kennel and give him some fuss. He’ll be a special companion to whoever adopts him.

I'm in tears again (haven't stopped since Friday) but today it's tears of joy. For all the dogs reserved this weekend, but especially Nick. One of my wishes after this tragedy is that little Bez sends new owners for all the greys at Daybreaks, but first and foremost the longest resident. So glad my prayer was answered. Well done handsome Nick and thank you to the prospective new owners from the bottom of my heart. Hope to see you with Nick at an event soon. Nick - behave yourself sweetheart. It'll be strange at first but you'll be so loved and retirement is wonderful. Greyhound owners are very special :) x

Well it seems a bit redundant now to say what a wonderful hound Nick is and that after having taken him to the park today, I can't understand why he hasn't been snapped up!! I'm going to say anyway what a lovely time we had today. We went to Elmdon for an hour and he was great. He met lots of breeds but behaved impeccably with all of them. He LOVES being out and I had to push him back into his kennel when I brought him back!! I'm so pleased for him. Wishing him and his new owner many happy times and lots of lovely walks xx

I was just saying to my husband, I wish Nick and Brandy could find their forever homes, well just seen Nick has been reserved, this has made my day, I am sure little Bez is watching over all of the Daybreaks hounds and this is her way of saying thankyou for caring. Just in tears everytime I think of Beautiful Bez, so this is some welcome news. So happy for you Nick xxxxx

I look at the diary daily and love all the good news when another super grey is rehomed. It's just poor Nick now who has been waiting far too long. I hope someone considers him first before the more recent rehomees. I appreciate he needs the right home but am sure someone with the right heart will make it work. It takes time. I had doubts that Skip would tame down in the first few weeks but 4 months in (and lots of support and training - thanks Julie) he's softened so much and really sees himself as a pet now. There's still a long way to go, but - however much help is given in the kennels (which are fantastic) - the transition to a pet can only be made in the home. So come on someone and make him a loving pet in your home. x

Maybe a pleading look, that shouldn't fail
I have plenty of kisses and leaning to do
Oh come on guys, just form a que
I fought my way back after a dreadful time
I just need a mom and dad now to be ALL mine.
love from Nick
I am thinking of forming a lonely hearts club for the black boys if we don't find forever homes soon, It worked for Sargent Pepper !!! lol We are all so fab xx

The handsome Nick came for a day out today with me, Maggie (my greyhound) and my husband. He was out of his kennel and in the car like a rocket. There is no doubt that he has a zest for life. We drove out to Packwood House and spent the next hour walking through fields and along country roads/ canals. He is a very keen walker and can be quite strong, especially when he sees another dog, particularly the small ones. However, when he actually meets the other dog, he behaves well. I thought I might have been in trouble when we saw two very small dogs as he started off like he was coming out of the traps at the racetrack. Once we caught up with them though he lost interest after having a bit of a look. We stopped at a pub for lunch and enjoyed an hour in the sunshine. He had a bit of a sunbathe but was ready to get started again in no time at all. We had another hours walk and then a trip back to Daybreaks. He's a lovely boy, who is very people friendly. He is super happy to be out exploring and will be great for someone who enjoys long walks. I might suggest starting the walk going uphill (believe me, he'll help you get up to the top) and then enjoy a more leisurely walk with him once he has worn himself out a bit!! Good luck handsome boy xx

Took the still very good looking Nick out for a walk today. His face has healed nicely and he is a pleasure to be around. He waits patiently to have his lead and muzzle put on and enjoys a good look round while his is walking. He will thrive in the right home. Big cuddles for you Nick xx

The handsome Nick came with me today to Sheldon Country Park. He jumped in the car easily and travelled happily. Once at the park, he was eager to get started and didn't appreciate waiting for other people to arrive!! He met a staffy with impeccable manners and stood lapping up any fuss that he could get. A lovely hound who needs his chance to shine now in a home xx

Sadly Nick has come back from foster today, this is not due to anything he has done, the family dog was not eating and was unsettled. We are told he was a very good boy and settled well whilst there. He really does need to have his own forever home. Please, there must be someone out there that can offer this gorgeous boy a home.

I am desperately appealing for a foster home for Nick. He needs some TLC whilst he recovers from his accident when he ran into a gate. The foster home needs to be a competent previous owner as he can be strong on the lead especially if he sees a squirrel but is generally good around other breeds and ok with children. He is bright but intermittently unsteady. We will fund all the costs whilst he is in foster so if you think you can help please call the kennels on 01217827702 and speak to myself (Ruth), Kate or Jo.

Poor Nick, and what a shock for the girls there when it happened, but how great where they in handling it.When we first had our late boy Ollie he saw something in the garden and thought he could just run outside through the sliding patio door off the kitchen. Wrong! the double glazed door was shut. Ollie was at near full speed when he hit it. The sound as his head made contact was awful. We rushed into the kitchen just as he ran back into the living room looking dazed but fine after a few minutes. In fact the door came off worse, he had knocked it right off its track. it took 2 of us to lift it back in it was sooooooo heavy. The power of these hounds is unbelievable, especially the lovely big black boys and yet they are so gentle. After that we always put something in front of the glass door when it was closed. Didn't stop me trying to walk through it once though !!! and never knocked any sense into me lol. So glad Nick is relatively ok. A red sign for him would make my day, he so needs it.
