In conjunction with Stacey Nevill Photography we have decided to create a Bristol DAWG Calendar.

Last year was the first year in many that we did not have one and I for one missed it!

SO! If you had your dogs photo taken at Stoke Gifford Dog Show by Stacey then there is a good chance your pooch could be featuring in the 2019 calendar!

Limited run of 100 calendars are priced at £7 each - preorder yours today!

100% of ALL profit from the sale of the calendar will go to Bristol DAWG!

Another Bristol DAWG finds his forever home!

Ted was the first dog rescued by Eila Moloney to  be rehomed after the official end of Dawgust.

He has been adopted in Weston-super-Mare and here he is with Martin, Jenny and his new sister, Saffie the Staffie!

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning - strolling around Ashton Court with 52 pointy noses. Today was all about remembering the wonderful Woody who passed away very suddenly. Jayne Hemmingsley was so pleased to see so many dogs and it was a superb tribute to Woody. Massive thanks to Jess Ward Prev Green and Andy Ward for their catering hospitality and to everyone who donated refreshments.

Thanks to Penny Owen for bringing her foster boys along, and what a lovely surprise to see Mandy, Kristie, Sara and Sophie from Tonew, who very kindly brought all the dogs which arrived this week - what a nice day out they had.

Jayne had already raised £230, added to donations today the final figure was just a few pennies short of £400 (which I have made up).

It was lovely to meet people from Bristol Whippet and Sighthound Walks.

Thank you to everyone for supporting this walk.

Many of you may remember Cilla the lurcher we took a few weeks ago as her owner had sadly passed away suddenly. Cilla didn't have to wait long for her forever home and she is now living with Nick and Paula in Little Stoke - think it is fair to say that she is settled and happy.

Thank you for giving Cilla a wonderful new home.

Diane completed the adoption paperwork this afternoon for Rocket, now called Eddie. He’s really landed on his paws with Jayne Hemmingsley and his two furry sisters in Clevedon. We know he’ll have a happy life with his new family, he’s already settled in really well, but Diane will always have a soft spot for this lovely boy!

A message from Eila Moloney:

"I received this cheque today. There are just no words to describe how overwhelmed I am ... thank you one and all. To Gerry and Bristol DAWG team, for all your help and support thank you. Eila xxx"

These three beauties crossed the Irish Sea late last night in search of a new life in the UK. Thank you Eila Moloney for saving them - every person who in some way helped with the DAWGUST appeal should feel really proud of themselves, as you have given these dogs the gift of life. Meet Ozzie, Princess and Hawk.

Thank you to Kristie and James at Tonew, as they will be getting up at midnight or just after to receive them. Kristie is amazing as her baby is due in less than two weeks and she is still looking after our dogs - thank you Kristie xx

The first Bristol Canicross Dog-Jog is taking place on Sunday 30th September 2018 to mark the inaugural Ordnance Survey Get Outside Day
Come and join us for a run with your hound(s) on a 5km or 10km route around Bristol's iconic Ashton Court Estate, and help us support the work of Bristol DAWG, Greyhound and Lurcher rescue charity!
This is a free event but participants are encouraged to make a minimum donation of £5 to Bristol DAWG at Just Giving using #BristolDogJog and #GetOutside in your comment. This enables you to GiftAid your donation! We will also have a collection bucket on the day.
Two routes (5km or 10km) will both start and finish near the Church Lodge Car Park, and follow a similar loop around the park allowing all runners and hounds to start together and run together for much of the first 5km. Running on a mix of tarmac paths, wooded trails, and gravel track, both distances contain a range of steady climbs and rolling hills (and some flats in between).
The route will be marked at major turning points but entrants should familiarise themselves with the general directions (using the OS Map provided!) or download the route file for use on your chosen gps device.
We invite you to take photos during the event and share them here on the event page and on social media using #GetOutsideDay and #BristolDogJog.
This event is untimed, and unsupported. All participants are responsible for themselves and their dogs, and are reminded that the estate is open for all. Please respect other users of the park during your run. Please also remember to pick up after your dog - there is a poo bin on the route - and take any litter home with you. 
Parking at Ashton Court is £1.20 per car per day, chargeable from 10am (speedy runners might be finished and away for FREE!)
Get involved with National #GetOutside Day
Be part of something big. Something that’ll make you healthier and happier, and more connected with friends and loved ones. Join Ordnance Survey’s National GetOutside Day.

Well done Julia Deane for organising.

Sadly, due to a change in family circumstances, Nellie who was originally adopted back in January 2015, was returned to our care for re-homing. It didn't take Nellie long to find a new home and she is now living with Derrick in Weston-Super-Mare.
Good luck Nellie and Derek!
