Here is my second blog post to share with you all.

Dear Cherry

What an exciting morning I've had!

Mummy and I organised the annual Great Global Greyhound Walk for the Isle of Wight. Each year, hundreds of Greyhounds go for a walk on the same day, at the same time. It's great promotion for us as a breed and goes some way to showing the public what fantastic pets we make.

This year Mummy decided we would go to Parkhurst Forest as it's lovely and cool there. She needn't have worried though as the weather is overcast today, so no hot sunshine.

Enjoying our greyhound walk

Nine greyhounds came along, including a little Italian Greyhound called Colin. He was really funny. He barked at all the other dogs we met along the way. It was as if he wanted to protect us all, but he was so tiny! I had to be careful not to step on him!

I really could have done with your company though Cherry. I was the only light coloured greyhound there. All the others were either black or smokey blue. I really stood out! It would have been lovely to walk by your side so we could show all the others how beautiful brindle greyhounds are.

I'm looking forward to my next walk with my local friends. Mummy is going to organise it for the middle of July and said we can go back to my favourite beach. This pleased everyone as it turns out it's their favourite place to walk too!

I'm going to take the rest of the day off now and enjoy a good snooze while my tummy sorts out the massive pigs ear Mummy gave me when we got home.

Missing you loads Cherry and hope to come back to see you soon.

Love & Licks

Who Am I?

Born and raised in Guernsey, Channel Islands, my first job when I left school was a Veterinary Nurse. However after 5 years of unsociable hours and being on emergency call, I moved into office work.

I was a Legal Secretary for the most part, but also enjoyed being a PA to the Chief Officer and Minister for Health & Social Services. I now live on the Isle of Wight where I work in a supermarket.

From early childhood I have always had pets. Over the years have been blessed to love two budgerigars, a hamster, a rabbit and eight cats (not all at once). Arik is my first dog and the bond we have is stronger than anything I have ever known.
