We had the pleasure of meeting gorgeous Paddy at the weekend. Paddy is a stunning white male greyhound who is looking for his forever home via Scottish Greyhound Sanctuary. He arrived in their care several months ago with a broken hock. This has since been treated & now fully healed, & Paddy is enjoying life with his foster siblings (a greyhound & a galgo) in Edinburgh. However he would so love a sofa & family of his own. If you’re interested in adopting this beautiful boy please contact SGS directly.
11 year old greyhound Phoebe is looking for a home via Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. What a sweet grey face she has <3

Training greyhounds (& other ‘difficult’ breeds)
Love Sarah Whitehead’s take on training greyhounds: “Learning to manage breed specific drives and needs is a part of being a good owner, and this is even more important if you own one of the so-called ‘difficult’ breeds. Owning a breed which has a reputation for being ‘different’ in training shouldn’t be a reason to give up on training altogether – it’s simply more of a challenge to find the things that motivate your dog, and the type of training exercises that he or she enjoys.”
“No, you must look at us, we are far more beautiful than whatever’s on the screen! Plus, er, we can’t figure out how to fit in this bed together lying down…” – The Boys ‘helping’ their Dad watch TV last night <3

Our T-shirts are ethical
In the wake of Whistles pro-feminismT-shirts being exposed as being the produced in sweatshops in Mauritius, we’d like to assure you that all the T-shirts we print on are EarthPositive® apparel, meaning they are not only ethically made with fair labour practices & a transparent manufacturing supply chain, but also organic and manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power. They cost a little bit more than some other T-shirts you’ll find because of this, but we think it’s worth it =)
