MONDAY 2ND OF OCTOBER
The weathers has been good, and it was an early start as I had to go to get meat at 5am as the plans where to leave at 11.30am to go to Shelbourne Park but the trails were cancelled just as we were about to leave as the hare broke down. We were all fed up like all Monday now and the kennels where all done as well so in the afternoon we did a load of Maintenance work.

It’s a lovely morning as we do the journal at 7am. It will be a typical Sunday where we cook, clean, let hounds out of kennels and feed. We will also do paperwork, do all the lists, tidy the website and prepare for a busy week. I have Michael Thompson coming to stay for a few days which I’m looking forward to. I’ll have to get somebody do tidy the house. Coney Peninsula had 15 pups to Kind Elvis. She’s okay but it had taken its toll on her. Thankfully she’s drinking and eating. We will keep a close eye on her for the next few days.
