Monday 2nd January:
We are doing Mondays journal on Tuesday evening. Monday was a Bank Holiday in Southern Ireland, we started at 6am as normal the weather was good and we had all hounds fed by 11am, all kennels cleaned as well and we finished early and came back twice in the afternoon to let hounds out that are in the kennels. I’m not a lover of the Christmas or New Year but I definitely enjoyed the break this year.
Tuesday 3rd January:
A long day, we started at 6am this morning and we had to be fed and kennels all done by 11 o’clock as a main job of today was trialing at Shelbourne Park and I had to go for meat at 6am and I was back at 10.30am. It’s been a long day as we just did the dog for sale page at 8.30pm tonight.
Wednesday 4th January:
Were doing Wednesdays journal on Saturday evening. We needed meat and all our waste away after the break. At the kennels we changed all the beds and we did a massive tidy up. The weather wasn’t too bad.

Its a nice day ideal for taking photographs to add to greyhound data which is the main job of the day. Were worming hounds, we need a trip to the dump and I have already collected meat.
