Greyhound Walks are a group of greyhound, Lurcher and sighthound owners and lovers
who meet 5 times a month in various venues in and around Essex, Suffolk, Hertfordshire and
Norfolk for an hours stroll, chatter and the sharing of doggy tales.
lurchers and sighthounds are welcome (no other breeds please unless it's a GreyhoundPLUS walk).
Full details of all our walks are on the
forum and please visit our website Greyhound Walks for more news and information about what we do.
Please read our Guidelines on the General board before posting

For the third year we walked 15 miles, this year in honour of all hounds at Rainbow Bridge.
We had a relay of folks all day and three of us who did the full 15 - Charlotte, David and me (every cm of my body is either sore or aching - serves me right for not getting the practice miles in!)
So a very big thank you to Emma, Terri, Graham, Sue, Kris, Jan T, Charlotte, David, Ann, Debbie, Mandy, Sarah, Joe & Ann our main walkers. A very big thanks for Dave and his vehicle support for doing pick up/drop off.
And thank you to everyone who came to meet us at Dunmow at lunch time and at Rayne on our return leg, we really appreciated you being there.
Will we do this again next year? Too right ... Such an honour to walk and remember the hounds.
Thank you Mum and Dave for coming up with the idea in the first place, for lunch at the pub and the loan of the Chelsea top (I will return it washed) Thank you Mrs T for the transfers for the special shirt. It went a bit wrong but that was us rather than the transfers!
We're very proud of ourselves, if a little achey this morning! Poor David's cold has come out with a vengeance but he's going off to dismantle a shower for his Uncle and do a thermostat for his Sister in a while

It was an honour and a privilege to be a part of this very, very special walk. I kept choking up as I was showing folks the photos of my Benny, Winnie, Rock and Freeway. It was great to see some of our people friends and doggy chums. My sister Sue enjoyed it too and she loved making a fuss of all the dogs (as did yours truly). As soon as we got back to the station cafe Gemma laid down, exhausted but happy that she'd managed to walk for 2 hours (a record for her). We are already looking forward to next year's walk.
