Galloping Greyhound Gourmet gets my vote

What a fab day!!!  The dog show and fun day organised by Perry Barr Retired Greyhound Trust was flipping fabulous.

Lots of great stalls - many of them fund-raising for good greyhound (and other animal) causes - and the Lady Of The House had a good run of luck on the tombolas which made her happy.

There were also a couple of rings were judging of dogs in various classes was going on - one ring for greyhounds and one for lots of other lovely breeds who (sadly for them) were not greyhounds.

My personal favourite bit, by a greyhound mile, had to be the Galloping Greyhound Gourmet who makes all sorts of tasty treats and had a few tasting plates available -yummy!

For dinner I'm about to tuck into a portion of a wonderful casserole she had whipped up made from rabbit, venison and three types of rice!!

But if you visit her website you will also find that she sells a cookbook called A La Bark Baking which raises money for homeless dogs as well as teaching you how to bake some of the same treats that the GGG does.

Maybe an idea for a Christmas pressie for the dog lover in your life?

That sounds like such a wonderful and amazing day! I am glad you had so much fun. I wonder if they ship those cookbooks to the US...

Hi Bunny

I think it's worth emailing to ask if you are interested. They are lovely books and great recipes.

Hiya - Its Kris xx
will happily ship to the u.s - will find out how much the postage is for you and post back here xx
it would be even better if we could get some u.s grey rescues to stock and sell them so we could help our greys overseas
