Brilliant 2 day event with lots to do and see and it's all about dogs! The shopping is also good with bargains to be had.
As usual they have placed us on a breed stand so we can show off our wonderfully behaved Greyhounds and lurchers. Lisa may possibly be going but I have a hectic work schedule leading up to the show so may not be feasible to pick her up and after a conversation with Lisa yesterday we had the rather embarrassing realisation that we may not actually be taking a Greyhound with us :-[ This is mainly because we have limited van space and can only leave the well behaved dogs at home (i.e. the Greyhounds) so our dog quota will be 2 slightly dodgy looking Shepherd 'lurchers', 2 fat Staffies and a small terrier ;D
Even if Lisa can't go I only have 1 Greyhound I can take with me and will still have 1 dodgy Shepherd 'lurcher' and a fat Staffie ;D
So I really, really need people with Greyhounds and 'proper' looking lurchers to come and help on one or both days. It's times like this when I realise how embarrassing my dogs are ;D
Off the top of my head I will have 4 free entry passes and one free camping pass. These will be available if you can meet us at the gate in the morning, if you require the camping pass I'll send it on to whoever wants it first.
May be popping up to this (depends how things are with the baby - and if I can persuade the hubby to drive - bribing him with food offers usually helps) but will wander by and say hello if we do. Can't commit to helping with having a 1 month old by then though!
The show starts at 10am and no vehicles will be allowed on site after 9am. I'm aiming to be there about 0830. If you think you can't get there until after 0900 you will have to use the public car parks. The show doesn't finish until 5pm and there will be no vehicular movement on site till after that time so if you need to get away earlier you won't be able to park behind the stall.

Lets hope I can find you this year!! Last year I was on time, drove round and round then ended up going out of the showground, on coming back in they said I was too late but let me in when I explained I'd got lost after already been in once ;D

missfleur2003: Hello. I am new to this site and noticed that the posts for available dogs seem to be quite old. Some seem to be years old. Are the dogs shown still available.

peggy: Also a brand new greyhound owner, I love her already. It's hard to believe she is 4 years old, I have to keep reminding myself she was in a kennel and not a home. She is a beaut, but goes skits around food, I suppose it was the excieting time of day x

dasherman: Hi, can anyone offer any suggestions as to why when it is sunny, my adopted ex racer is terrified to leave the house to eat or drink or anything for that matter? Seems to be obsessed by the sky?

kiri07: I have been concerned with my 7 year old greyhound losing hair on her thighs, but it looks like it is a normal thing. She's losing a little in a few other places too. I saw someone say something about vetzyme condition tablets? I also heard organic oat

steeveet: Hi there, just had our home inspection by a lovely lady with her Greyhound Arthur, who I could have happily snaffled as he was sweet and at home with our girl Belle. Does anyone here know how we now get to meet any of the dogs who need a home?

greylover68: Can I shout out advice re fireworks! Rock Rose which is a Bach’s Flower Remedy works fantastically! My great big big is petrified but a few drops of Rock Rose and he’s calm within minutes. It is for fear so would help with other things too.
