PENNY WENT TO PAINSHILL PARK WITH ANNA G. ON NOVEMBER 22nd 2017. THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID ABOUT PENNY :
‘Penny came for a walk with me at Painshill Park on a weekday. She happily jumped in and out of the car on the way there. In the car she was very excited to watch everything around her and stood up, but eventually settled and sat down on her bottom in a very non-greyhound way. We tried the stairs and she managed beautifully both up and down.
The park was very quiet and we didn’t meet any other dogs. She seemed to very much enjoy her walk, and was keen to explore. She was mildly interested in ducks, but no more than any other dog. She does occasionally turn to you for reassurance, but a few encouraging words and she’s off again. She walks beautifully on a slack lead, and if ever it became tense she slowed down right away. She didn’t really want to get in the car on the way back and had to be persuaded. Once in she did a very dramatic sideways flop complete with sighs – I was clearly mean for making her leave! She laid down relaxed the whole way back.
When we got back to the kennels she had a lot of a cuddles. She’s a lovely affectionate girl who I suspect with growing confidence will have quite an entertaining personality – it already shines through.’
PENNY WENT TO PAINSHILL WITH CLÍONA B. ON NOVEMBER 18th 2017. THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID ABOUT PENNY:-
‘Penny was a pleasure to walk, walking well with four other hounds and she loved being out and about somewhere new. She was cautious jumping into the car but then she stood up the whole way to Painshill as she was mesmerised by all the different things to see from the window.
It was a joy to be in her company and she walked leisurely on a loose lead, was attentive to ducks and passed by a spaniel without a sideways glance; only needing a firm hand when she reacted to a small excited dog that barked at our group.
She is a popular girl at the kennels with staff and walkers alike.’
