Saturday 20th November:
Were doing Saturdays journal on Sunday morning. Yesterday was a busy day. We got our waste away, I went to the Cash and Carry, we finished off swapping around pups, saplings and kennel dogs and we also hunted and galloped. Newcastle United played a lot better but we need a miracle to survive the Premiership. Under the new ownership I have no doubt that if we get relegated we will come straight back.

Sunday 21st November:
Its a cold dry morning and Padgie is off as its his wife’s birthday. It will be a typical Sunday where we feed, cook, clean and do a bit of a tidy up. Its 27 years today since I came to Ireland. I remember it just like it was yesterday. There has been massive changes in Ireland and the greyhound industry in the last 27 years. It was 6 months later that I moved into Lughill Kennels. I had seem almost everything with greyhounds. Thankfully I have seen the highs but I’ve also seen the lows.
