Lula Belle had an unsettled night and I decided today to let her slip away before getting worse. She went very quickly and peacefully. I took her to Heart of England after the vets on her final journey and her ashes will accompany the many others on Wispa’s grave at the kennels. Run free little one xxx

Oh my word daybreaks what are you trying to do to me this week? I am so so sorry for Lula belle, but thank fully she won't know anything and will clearly be loved and cared for till it's her time to become an angel, but my heart 150% goes out to her owner and just looking at that bottom picture breaks me. What a heart breaking, awful decision he must have gone through. God bless to you all and Ruth and Andy you are so wonderful and brave. Lots of love Lula belle xxx

Yesterday I went out to Lula Belle as I keep a regular check on her as she was with an elderly owner. Daybreaks Trust paid for her to have a major dental in November last year costing over £600 as her owner was unable to afford the treatment.

Sadly now she has developed a massive tumour on her back. I took her to the vets yesterday and due to her sad prognosis, she has now been signed back into the Trust. We are going to keep her comfortable until it is time to say goodbye. She has made herself quite at home at ours and giving her as much TLC as possible.

Lula Belle came to Hatton with Duggie today and what a gorgeous girl she is. She hopped straight into the van and settled well for the journey. On arrival she enjoyed plenty of attention and cuddles and had a little walk around the shady edge of the field. She was most intrigued to see a spaniel practising recall and her hears stood to attention whilst she watched. She and Duggie got on well together, with lots of 'leaning' on one another going on. All in all a successful day, especially as it ended with the wonderful news that lovely Lula has been offered a new home. Good luck sweet girl.xxxx

I re-homed an older dog a few years ago , who's owner had sadly passed away, Ollie had his own little routines too but the experience was the most rewarding thing I have ever done.

To see him ,settled , one snowy night with his head on the radiator , was awesome .

scroll to the bottom of this webpage..

As there had been an enquiry about Lula, we dropped her back at the kennels after her walk yesterday. Although she had only been with us a very short time, she completely stole my heart. Such a pretty grey face, she obviously has her own routines which she was happy with and that included commandeering the sofa!!! Such a gentle soul, she loves her treats and carries them off to eat them somewhere else,just like our Shane used to do. She was so good on her walk, interested in everything and trotting along at a good pace too. Unfortunately she isn't cat friendly, she became quite lively and had a good old bark at our neighbours cat as it walked past the gates! I am so sad we couldn't keep her for longer, but hope that at least her first night away from her old life was not too bad for her, and at least we can confirm she will be a fabulous addition to the right home. Fingers crossed for you my sweetheart. Xxx

John and I had the pleasure of meeting Lula Belle at Daybreaks today and she truly is the most beautiful lady. Understandably a little nervous what with all the people around her, different noises, sights & smells, but without hesitation she approached John when he went into the kitchen run and they spent 10 minutes having lot of cuddles. I was lucky enough to have a somewhat shorter cuddle with her, but none the less, she's most welcoming to any human and was generating a lot of interest whilst we were there today. Whoever this lovely girl chooses to adopt will have the most adorable grey. Our fingers (& Rosie's paws) are crossed for you gorgeous that your new family is just around the corner. Tash x

Michael & I have brought Lula Belle home this evening as she was really quite distressed in the kennels. She is currently fast asleep on the floor in the living room, it has been such a traumatic day for her. Our thoughts go to Elizabeth's family at this awful time, and they can rest assured that this lovely girl will be well looked after and a new home found for her. xxx

Hopefully she won't be at the kennels for too long. After all, she must be house trained, socialised and all ready to go. Good luck Lula Belle. xxx

My cuddle today goes to Lula Belle. There are so may losses in this heartbreaking story. She has lost her mum and lurcher brother and Elizabeth's family have lost a precious daughter. Let's hope that her stay at Daybreaks is a short one for all the right reasons.
Lula Belle is a half sister to my beautiful Lola, which gives her automatic rights to my e-cuddles as well. She's got a bit of catching up to do in the grey-face department but I am sure she'll make a wondeful addition to someone's family. Fingers and paws crossed here for a swift rehoming for this lovely girl. xxxx

How sad for Lula & for her family, and how brave to give her up if she can no longer be cared for. My thoughts go out to her family and I hope she is lucky soon. I have rehomed older dogs (Greys & others) in the past and they truly are a delight usually well past barking, chewing, biting & young dog silliness and happy to settle for a quiet life. Hope she's lucky soon.

Such a sad story - our hearts go out to Lula and her family. What has happened to her lurcher brother? Having rehomed an older lady who is such a joy, I would ask any prospective adopters not to be put off by her age and be encouraged by the fact she has been in a home with another dog. These dogs have seen it, done it and got the Tshirt so are no trouble and settle really well. They just want someone to love them and give love to and they ask very little - already house trained and love to sleep and chill out. Our little oldie seems to have found a new lease of life so please don't overlook this beauty. Can't wait to meet her when I pop up on Saturday xxx

It is with great sadness that we have heard that Lula Belle's owner Elizabeth passed away very suddenly.

Therefore It is with the regret of the family that Joy will have to come back to Daybreaks to be rehomed.

She has been in a home since March 2010 and I feel will stress, having lost her mum, her lurcher brother and the life she has enjoyed.

I am desperate to find this little girl a new home as soon as possible and I appeal to anyone thinking of adopting to spare a thought for Joy.

She was a long stayer previously....

Having spoken to Elizabeth's Father - I know how just heartbreaking this is going to be to bring her back to the kennels on Friday and our thoughts are with them as they are going through a very very tough time. x

As one of the volunteers who walks her when i am at the kennels i can vouch for the fact that she walks very nicely on the lead, as they are all still trust dogs we can't let them run off lead so that is an area where she as well as all our greys need to be trained in. my 3 greys are not able to go off lead as there is no where suitable for them to be trained to recall safely, however i know plenty of people who are lucky enough to live somewhere where they can train their greys and they do walk them off lead. Joy is just what her name indicates, a joy to be around. Ina x

My youngest fell in love with Joy, and as much as she loves Molly (Claire), she still misses Joy. (In fact, she's making her a card as I type.) Joy is such a lovely, lovely girl - I hope someone will give her a fantastic home soon.

Monday 15 Feb 08:08



Kerry covered the kennels yesterday for me and I popped up before closing to see the inmates! Kerry told me she was worried about Joy as she was very down and wouldn't eat..... I went into her kennel - immediately she leapt to her feet and gave me lots of kisses and cuddles - her tail wagging...... I must admit I have been spoiling her and everyday she comes into the kitchen and gets lots of TLC during the day and of course she hadn't done this as the kitchen had been so busy. She is a clever girl - knows what she wants and gives a lot in return. I hope someone falls in love with her soon.

My beautiful black girl Izzy is a big grey and quite bouncy, and because of this she had been in kennels for a year when we homed her. People passed her by because she looked as "mad as a box of frogs" as the saying goes.
We have had her just over a year and she is still bouncy with a real love of life and a great love of people.
We are so glad we gave her a chance, and to prove she didn't put us off she has a brother and a younger sister now as well. All of them different characters and personalities, but blend together to balance us humans and show us how to take life as it comes and just luv one another.
I am sure this girl would be the same. She has been waiting too long, please give her a chance someone xxx

Joy I have looked at greyhound data and you will certainly make someone happy a honcho you may be a little bouncy girl but you will have a wonderful happy nature.please give this girl a nice long walk and her character will shine through. Just because shes been in the kennel a while should not put anyone off, she needs a nice pigs ear and a few sausages.

she is breaking my heart as she is such a lovely little girl and yet she is still at the kennels, i know that she is bouncy when in the kennel but once on the lead she is a perfect little lady and walks very calmly, all she needs is a home and some attention and she will settle right in. surely someone out there will want to own this stunning little girl, just because she is a black greyhound does not mean that she is not special...i have 3 black hounds and to me they are the most stunning of them all.

Poor Joy - if you'd passed your cat test, you could have been warming yours paws in front of the fire here long ago. Hopefully someone will soon realise what an absolute star you are.

Why oh why is Joy still here? By the sounds of it she's wonderful and she is beautiful! I'm trying to persuade the parents that Joy would be a lovely sister for Monty, perhaps he'd stay on his OWN bed then! Mum likes the look of her, but it's back to persuading Dad again! Fingers crossed we'll be able to get Monty a friend, hoping that its Joy or one of the other black beauties who've been here for a while. Hope you find a perfect home soon sweetie xxx

Oh, Joy, I'm so sorry that our home wasn't right for you, I think the boys would have driven you mad! Still it broke my heart to say no to you when you so wanted to get into my car, I feel like a really horrible person, but the decision had to be based on all my family's needs and not just mine. You are so beautiful and full of character I know the right home is out there for you, sorry it wasn't ours :(

Awwwww i can't believe joys not homed yet, She's a lovely, boucy little lady, very Friendly. When she was at her trainers, wenever i went into her kennel i was always welcomed with a tail wag! She always used to try rob my gloves out of my pocket, cheeky! It ended up being our little game, bless her! she loves affection and a nice scratch behind her ear, she would make an amasing family pet! Miss you cheeky joy! Your be homed soon xxx

Poor Joy - she has been miserable since Max her kennel mate went to his foster home on Monday. Today she wouldn't get off her bed or eat her breakfast so she has spent the day in the kitchen with Foxy and Joe. One of the beds is in a corner under the worktop and she has spent most of the day there! Initially rejecting every treat given, she was intrigued by a peice of banana offered and she has since been out and wagging her tail to everyone who comes in the kitchen.

Yes she is a lovely girl and she got on great with Guinny, I should imagine she would be great in a home who had other greys too. Shame it can't be ours, but 2 is enough at the moment. I look forward to seeing the reserved sign go up soon.x.

Joy is still with us and i can't understand why that is. apart from not being cat friendly she is a lovely little lady and not everyone has cats so for all of you out there without the moggies please take a little time out with Joy and see how lovely she is. Ina xxx

So disappointed that Joy failed her cat test. I think my persuasive powers may have been working. I'm sure someone will want to bring Joy into their cat free home at Christmas time!
