Great British Greyhound Walk 2015

Great British Greyhound Walk 2015Hope your January is going well. Lots of news here.

Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who has so far sent in pictures for the Online Dog Show. The most so far from one person is sixteen pictures, but I wouldn't be surprised if we get more. Don't forget, as well as the prizes for your entry, the winners will also be able to nominate your favourite rescue to receive a donation. Please keep sending them, it's been a delight seeing so many gorgeous dogs.

Secondly, some news on a charity auction we are supporting. We were asked by Platinum Petcare, if we'd help by donating an item for a forthcoming auction they are running for Bristol DAWG. We've donated one of our new Very Berry Star Greyhound Fleece Coats, and there will be plenty of other lovely things to bid for. This will help to raise funds to cover the veterinary costs for some injured greyhounds they've recently looked after.

The auction will be running from 14th to 28th February on their Facebook group.

This week, a very exciting parcel arrived. It was a special bundle of Save The Date cards, not for a wedding, but for this year's Great British Greyhound Walk which is taking place this year on Sunday 21st June 2015. We're very happy to be supporting this event – it's a brilliantly simple way for greyhound owners to get together and simply celebrate the wonderful hounds we all adore. Since it began, the event has grown every year and now there are walks all round the world on this special day. We'll be doing our bit in a number of ways. From this week, we'll be slipping a Save The Date card in with orders. We've got the logo on our website and there'll be more content to follow to promote the event. I'll be mentioning it regularly in emails as we approach the day. We'll be walking at an event in South Wales and I can't wait! Fingers crossed for sunshine and a record breaking turnout this year.
