Well it's been a busy few weeks in the Taylor house. Mojo continues to do well and Gangley is now going on two walks a day, 1 small one with me in the morning and a longer one with her Dad in the afternoon, she doesn't seem to be as wobbly.

Grandson Harvey was 7 this week, so we went over for a birthday tea, he's off with some friends tomorrow to watch the Ipswich v Blackpool match. I had to keep my coat on as it was so darn cold in their house!

Made Eric a valentine card which he loved and have been beavering away on a secret project for someone else which I will show next month.


The Greyhound gap auction was extended by a week and my bits raised £59.50 and Eric offer of a bespoke hound weather vane made a whooping £75! £1,600 pounds was raised which sounds brilliant until you hear that last months kennelling bill and vet fees came to £4,500! The doors were once again shut to incoming dogs and then 3 emergencies came in which was part of an ongoing situation to try and rescue them. An appeal was put out for anyone to squeeze in another foster hound BUT after much thought we decided with two poorlie hounds and the pack still a bit unsettled that we couldn't manage number 8, we felt very guilty but sometimes your own pack has to come first.

Looking forward to crop tomorrow.

Right I have some how clicked on something and every post or comment I type is tiny, I can barely read them, looks okay when published but if anyone knows what I've done and how to put it right put me out of my misery please, happened once before and I fixed it but blowed if I can this time!.

Sorry can't help with the size of text.

So glad Mojo and Gangley are doing well.

Glad you went over to Harvey's birthday tea. Bet he'll enjoy the footie.

Beautiful card for Eric.

GAP auction did well, but as you say with the running costs only really a slight dent in those.

Don't think you should feel guilty. We'd all love to foster, but it's just not practical or fair on exisiting dogs.

Have a lovely time at the crop tomorrow.

So glad that everyone is doing well. I hope your grandson's team won. I hope that one day soon the Gap can get their own kennel. How overwhelming. The card is beautiful, and I can't wait to see your newest surprise project.

Glad to hear things are well in the household. Hope those emergencies find a foster home.

Many congratulations on the money you've raised. You do a sterling job to help the hounds; they are very lucky to have you! Deccy x
