Alfie's arrival and a brief history
Click images for a larger view

white and black greyhound
Alfie is a handsome white and black ex-racing Greyhound who was born on the 1st January 2007.
Alfie is neutered, microchipped and his inocuations are being brought up to date because he came with no inoculation paperwork.
Alfie is a happy, friendly lad who walks nicely on the lead and travels well in the car.
Alfie's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Alfie and the other resident(s) will be for the first day or so until he gets to know the other greyhounds. He has use of our garden and paddock, and once he gets to know the other dogs he will be allowed in the house during the day and all the dogs will then take it in turn to sleep in the house at night, so they become use to sleeping in both the kennel and the house.

2nd October 2013
Alfie arrived with Bo this afternoon around 2pm. Both happily wandered around the garden, then we introduced them to the dogs already in the kennel. Once in the kennel we put Bo and Alfie in separate sections and closed the gates so they could see and be with the other dogs, yet still be on their own during the 'get to know each other' period.
8th October 2013
Alfie's lip where it was swollen started to bleed a little from the outside so we took him to the vet this afternoon for a check up. The vet said it was where one of his teeth had caught it from the inside when he and Tyler had a slight disagreement through the wire mesh in the kennel the first night Tyler arrived. The vet gave us some antibiotics and said to continue with the Metacam for a couple more days.
9th October 2013
Alfie's lip doesn't look as 'angry' tonight, so hopefully the antibiotics will help it heal better.
Alfie, although had an accident in the kennel the first four nights, which was possibly nerves and moving to a strange environment is now clean.
He loves cuddling into his duvet at night, and this evening with the wind getting up and the weather prediction for it getting colder we put a kennel coat on him, which he loved.
Alfie is a really friendly chap, enjoys roaming round the garden and greeting our bed and breakfast guests when they are on room 1 balcony, but then most of our greyhounds enjoy saying hello to the bed and breakfast guests whenever they can.
12th October 2013
This afternoon Alfie went with his new owners of to his new home. He remembered his new owners when they arrived and he was happy to walk off down the drive with them and jump in the back of their car. We never had Alfie very long, and we hope he'll have a long and happy life with his new family.
13th October 2013
We heard today that Alfie travelled well on his way home yesterday and lay in the back of the car all the way. They introduced him to his new garden and upon doing his toilet they gave him a huge praise and brought him in the house.
He's had a couple of accidents in the house, but then it is the first time he's been in one so it is to be expected.
He's enjoyed his walks around the park where, wearing his muzzle as a safety precaution, he's met other dogs including a Jack Russell.
Although it's early days Alfie seems to be getting along okay.
21st January 2014
Sadly Alfie passed away this evening around 6pm..
He'd been fine in the morning, had his morning walk then breakfast followed by his nap. During the afternoon while he was running around the garden he suddenly collapsed and couldn't move his back end properly.
Afie's owners got him to their vet straight away who diagnosed a severe spinal stroke (FCE). They sedated him so he could be taken to the local animal hospital who after an examination said the extent of the damage caused was so severe there was nothing they could do to restore the paralysis caused.
It was a heart rendering decision his owner's had to make, and he passed quietly away with the assistance of the vet.
As you imagine his new owners are devasted at the sudden loss of their lovely boy Alfie who they only had for about three months. Short I know, but in that time he experienced home comforts and the love of a family who adored him, which is just so important..
Rest in Peace my darling Alfie.
Go with God, and bless you.
