Star arrived on Sunday 18th October 2015
and we have decided he is staying here with us.

Star's arrival and a brief history

Star - Red Greyhound
Star is a large handsome red ex-racing greyhound who was born in June 2009, weighs 35.1k and he has a nice nature. He is neutered, inoculated and microchipped. His next inoculations are due on the 3rd January 2016
Star is a loving dog, super with children and we've been told he is okay with other breeds of dogs but this we will check out. He travels well in a car.

Star has become one of our dogs.

Star's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Star and the other resident(s) will be for the first few days 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.

21st October 2015
When Star visited the vets this morning he weighed in at 35.9k

23rd December 2015
Washing Star's eyes out with eye lotion each day has been making his eyes less sore, but once I stop doing it the go back to as they were. This morning we took him to the vets for an examination and we were given some fucithalmic vet 3gm drops to put in twice a day for a week.
Star is super at having them put in, he just lifts his nose in the air and waits for me to put them in. A kiss on his nose is all he wants once they are in and off he goes back to his bed.
27th December 2015

Star has taken to getting on the settee in the evenings next to Stuart and enjoys his cuddles. This evening as Sandy came over to say hello to Stuart Star growled at him. This is quite common with new dogs once they discover the enjoyment of company on the settee if another dog gets too close, they don't want to share it. Star suddenly found himself unceremoniously dumped on the floor with a 'get off', a little bewildered he stood up and walked into the kitchen to see me. "Well don't growl at other dogs when you are on the settee, it isn't allowed" I said, and ignored him. With his head down he took to the bed by the kitchen fire for an hour or so, then when he came to us again everyone was back to normal and hopefully a lesson has been learnt.
31st December 2015
Star has been on the fucithalmic vet 3gm drops for a week now for the conjunctivitus he has in both eyes and they seem no better. As a result he went to the vets again this morning for another examination. The vet gave him some different drops and he has another appointment to go back next Friday. If these drops don't work the vet wants to flush out his tear ducts.
8th January 2016
Star took a trip to the vets today for his booster inoculation and to have his eyes looked at. He weighed in at 34.3k. The vet, like us believe they are looking better and with us going away, and to be on the safe side it was suggested he stay on them for a further week. If Craig, who is looking after Star for us while we are away feels he needs to see the vet again then he can take him and we will proceed from there.
10th January 2016
This lunch time Craig, one of our branch volunteers called in to collect Star and take him home with him. He will be looking after Star until we return from holiday. It was a very sad feeling to see Star jump into the front seat of his van and curl up ready for the journey.
21st January 2016
We heard from Craig today that Star is doing well.
13th February 2016
This lunch time Craig brought Star back following our return from holiday. What a lovely welcome he gave us, but he'd lost some weight and quite a bit of hair from his back legs. Craig said he'd been fine, but we think he may have been worrying about us not coming back, bless him. All afternoon and evening he became our shadow not wanting us out of his sight. Think he was glad to be home!
22nd February 2016
We took Star to the vets this morning where he was going to have his tear ducts washed out to remove any infection deep inside them be cleaned out. All went well and we brought him home in the afternoon along with Alamo who had been spayed.
10th March 2016
Star weighed in at 35.6k today.
17th January 2017
As we are away on holiday Star is being looked after by Fen's owners till our return. We heard today he is settling and eating well.
28th January 2017
We received an email today letting us know that he has settled in well and is taken out for a walk twice a day by Dan.  He also plays in the garden with Fen but the weather is pretty dreadful so it isn’t so often.
