From the left, Bobby, Noreen and Robbie arrived at the kennels at silly o'clock this morning and, as ever, we thank Kristie and James for getting up to welcome them. More information will be available as we get to know them.

As part of the fund raising for Dawgust, Michael Turner is offering to a free Will writing service to anyone for the month, which is drawn up to your requirements for a donation to DAWG of £25.00 for a single will or £35.00 for a couple whose spouse is the beneficiary, with three bound copies of each. How it works is, you make the donation direct to DAWG and as soon as they have it he will write the Will with you. If you donate through the DAWG Just Giving site I you may also be eligible for Gift Aid, which will benefit DAWG. He was getting bored being retired anyway!

Carrie (left) and Nancy are the latest girls to join Bristol DAWG from our friend Eila Moloney in Ireland. As usual, Kristie and James welcomed them, on our behalf, in the early hours of the morning.

Meet Spot and Ella, two more lucky girls making their way over the Irish Sea this evening in search of a better life. As always, Eila Moloney, we are grateful for everything you do for these dogs to give them a better life.
Think it is fair to say we are now well and truly full - we have seventeen dogs looking for homes, so please spread the word if you know anyone looking for a new companion, obviously subject to our re-homing criteria.

We would like to thank Deborah Herbert-Jarvis of The Fox at Yate for hosting a Friends Quiz Evening for our DAWGUST appeal.
£210 was raised and we all had a really enjoyable evening - we all got there early and had food, which was really good and excellent value for money.
We are so grateful for every penny raised which helps rescue more greyhounds in Ireland.
Thank you to everyone who supported the evening.

We would like to thank everyone who has registered and uses Easyfundraising. We have just received the largest cheque so far £686.95 - and we didn't have to do anything for it apart from click on the link when you shop on line.
If you shop online, please take a moment to register at www.easyfundraising.org.uk and help raise money for the dogs in our care - it really doesn't cost you anything but can make a big difference to us.
If you are looking for our charity we are registered as Bristol Dog Action Welfare Group.
Thank you all you lovely DAWG people.

Thank you to Dave, Lynne, Barbara and all their lovely hounds for undertaking a charity collection yesterday in Wells. They collected £323.50p which Dave tells me they would like to donate to the DAWGUST Appeal which will enable our very good friend Eila Moloney to save more hounds.
We are so lucky to have such wonderful people supporting the work we do.

Gerry met with Catherine Neck this morning to make Birdie's adoption final. Sadly she was returned to Bristol DAWG following a relationship breakdown, and was fostered by Ann, one off our lovely foster mums.
Birdie has been with Catherine, Justin and their lurcher, Percy, for the last two weeks and all has gone really well - in fact she hasn't put a paw wrong and Percy appears to like her.
Thank you Catherine and Justin for giving this sweet girl a lovely new home, we know she will never want for anything again.

What a greyt evening at the pub quiz tonight! Loads of DAWG supporters, good food, interesting questions and won by a DAWG team - the fact that it raised well over £200 was almost a bonus! Thank you to the Codrington Arms for organising it and inviting us and special thanks to the quizmaster.
