Arrival Story:
We adopted Honey from Dumfriesshire & Cumbria Greyhound Rescue. Honey was our very first Greyhound and she has captured our hearts like we never thought possible. Honey has just been in her forever home for just 10 months but has changed us all for the better.

Born in Ireland, Racing name was Parkstown Dream, 25 races with 2 wins and lots of seconds, it seems she didn't like leaving the other dogs behind and slowed down so they could catch up!

Honey's Retirement

My poor skin brother

Hi Friends,

My skin brother had a fall at school yesterday and after a visit to the hospital the doctor told mum he had a cracked bone in his ankle. The kind nurses put a temporary back cast on it to let the swelling go down over night.

Fraser went back to hospital this afternoon to get his full cast on, his paw is very swollen and sore, he will have to lie down with his leg raised till Sunday.

The doctor told him he will have to return to hospital in 3 weeks to check to see how it is healing.

Fraser loves me so much he let me sign his cast first, right at the front where everyone can see it.

I'm giving Fraser lots of Honey Hugs to help him feel better and to speed up his recovery as he is such an active boy and wants to get up to hang out with his friends and go on adventures on his bike.

Honey x


Honey's Birthday

Hi Friends,

Just thought I'd let you all know what a super fabulous birthday I had.

Dad took me for a nice walk when I got up and when we got back Mum had prepared a scrummy breakfast, bacon, sausage & black pudding. ooh super yum

Once breakfast had settled Dad took me in the car to get something for Mum and then for another walk round Bunny field.

When we got back there was one yummy smell coming from the kitchen, Yes Mum had made me a peanut butter birthday cake as suggested by Kebo & Tiel (Thanks Guys) Mum gave me just a small taste to see if I liked it (As if I wouldn't)

Birthday tea was juicy chicken followed by my Birthday cake, Mum added plain yoghurt to the top then added a blue icing H and number 5 and topped it off with a sparkly pink candle. Oh boy was it yummy, I ended up with yoghurt all over my nose.

I settled down for a snooze to work off my yummy treats I thought Mum & Dad had forgotted about my bath with my special shampoo to help my coat but hey no such luck. It wasn't so bad I always get lots of hugs and treats afterwards.

Just when I thought I'd finished for the day, Mum ordered me a new soft house collar, my leather ones rubbing my coat a wee bit.

Thank you to all my friends who sent lovely birthday greetings. I've had a greyt day

Honey Hugs x


Meeting my New Family

Having passed the home check, On 24th Jan 2007 @ 9.30am I got a call from Dumfriesshire & Cumbria Greyhound Rescue asking if I would like to go and see "Ginger" at the local rescue centre. I told the lady I didn't drive so she offered to pick me up and take me to see the dog. When we arrived "Ginger" was being seen by the vet so we waited until they were done and then Ginger was brought out to meet us. When "Ginger walked out I immediately thought "She's Not Ginger, she's more of a fawn colour" The rescue lady, Jane said we could take her for a walk, she was very keen to sniff out her surroundings. On returning to the kennels Jane said I could take her into the excercise field and let her have a run and boy could she run, it was poetry in motion and a joy to watch. When it was time to take Ginger back to the kennel I called her but she didn't respond. Jane said she didn't respond when she called her either. As Ginger's background was unknown Jane thinks Ginger was just a name she was give to identify her and not one the dog recognised. Jane said "Ginger" could easily be renamed and asked if I was to rename her what would I call her, I thought for a while and "Honey" popped into my head as she was a honey colour and had such a sweet nature, she was a real honey to be with. Jane allowed me some time with "Ginger" on my own, all she wanted was to be stroked, she had such a soft coat for a greyhound, more like fur than hair. I say Jane approaching, I didn't want Ginger to go back into the kennel, the sad eyed look she gave had me completely hooked. I said to Jane "I want to take her home" she asked if I was certain as I had shown interest in seeing another dog. I said "Honey" was definately the one for us. Jane smiled, she knew Honey had got me hook, line and sinker with those lovely brown eyes. I reluctantly handed the lead back to Jane who said she would call the rehoming officer to let him know my decision, she also said if he gave the ok and her vet check was clear she would pick her up before the kennel closed for the day and bring her home to me. I was so excited waiting for Jane to call and sure enough the call came to say Honey was cleared and ready to go to her forever home. Jane arrived with Honey just an hour later. We had everything waiting for her, bedding, food, toys and loads of love. Jane gave me her number just incase I needed any advice. Honey settled in really quickly and before long she was lying stretched out with her feet in the air. That was only 10 weeks ago but it feels like we have had her forever and you know, something tells me Honey won't be the last grey we adopt!
