All about Winnie and Monkey

Winnie was a retired racing greyhound who came to live with her new forever family, the Pritchards, in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England, in August 2010.

Her family consisted of the LOTH, the MOTH, the BOTH and the GOTH, which for your information is the Lady Of The House, the Man Of The House, the Boy Of The House and the Girl Of The House.

Winnie was re-homed by the Nottinghamshire and East Midlands branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust based at Crossing Cottage, Sutton-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire.

She was not a cat-friendly greyhound - but some greyhounds are.

Sadly, Winnie died suddenly after a short but severe illness on December 18, 2012.

Winnie and the LOTH started this blog to let everyone know what WONDERFUL pets greyhounds make. We hope that after reading it you are convinced.

On April 7, 2013, our family was once more complete when Monkey joined the Pritchard household. Once again we went to Crossing Cottage Greyhound Sanctuary where Monkey - another retired racer - chose us.

Blog writing duties in the Monkey era fell to the MOTH.
