Honley Show & The Great British Greyhound Walk

Hello everyone; remember me?! Probably not after all this time!!

I just thought I'd pop along to  show you some pictures of me "helping out" (Mum says I mean sleeping) at the West Yorkshire Retired Greyhound Trust stall at the Honley Show last weekend.

This is Romi

.....and this is his sister Sage.

Romi & Sage's Mum, Debbie runs West Yorks RGT. Romi is one of my good friends. I like him because he is dead laid back and more importantly, smaller than me!!

There were  a few of us houndies there helping to promote greyhounds as pets. We also managed to raise £164.00....which I'm sure had everything to do with the hounds and nothing to do with the human helpers at all....!

There were lots of interesting thing to see......

That's a funny looking Greyhound Mum....and it's coat needs a wash......

Time for some light refreshment after a busy day.....

While I'm here, I also wanted to tell you about The Great British Greyhound Walk 2014. The walk takes place next Sunday 22nd June at over 80 locations across Britain. 

The Great British Greyhound Walk is an annual dog-walking event that brings together greyhounds, lurchers, other sighthounds and their owners, to raise awareness and show members of the public just what wonderful pets greyhounds make. Many of the walks are also happy to accept other breeds that are part of a Greyhound's family. 

If you'd be interested in joining in, there is a list of the walks on the website, and this year for the first time ever, the GBGW is going global! As well as across Britain, there are walks in Belgium, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, ROI, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and several US states, so do please check out the website and come and join in!

This year's Ambassador is my good mate Jack "JT" Alford, who lives with his Mums in London. 

Jack and I recently spent a few days together in Norfolk......just doing what boys do!

Jack's official Ambassadorial portrait! 

And case you haven't had enough reminders of what I look like......

Love, Deccy xx
