Grace's First Greyhound Walk


Recommended Posts

Grace and I went on our first greyhound walk on Sunday organised by Nottingham Greyhound Trust at Elvaston Country Park. After a nervous start Grace soon settled down when a couple of the other hounds came up and said hello.

 

At 10:30ish off we went in a sort of crocodile around the edge of the park, and what a strange site it must have been to the owners of other breeds of dogs, this group of 30+ greyhounds all walking beautifully on their leads with no barking and whining, no shouts of come here ,stop that, or no!, just the sound of their owners chatting.

 

We will definitely go again and I think it did Grace's confidence a world of good but it's difficult to know as she's been asleep ever since... :hehe

:) sounds like a lot of fun, especially if she sleeps it off.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Chancey was a leaping, screaming lunatic when we saw another dog when walking in the forest or around the streets so I was concerned about her behaviour the first time I took her to our local greyhound walk. I needn’t have worried because she just looked at them all and obviously decided we had come to the right place at last and just calmly walked in amongst them and we’ve been enjoying a monthly walk for four and a half years now!

I expect you will enjoy taking part in this year’s Great Global Greyhound walk
