Greyhound Rescue Wales were in good spirits yesterday at Coronation Park Newport.
They were taking part in the Hope rescue Dog Show. Happily greyhound racing has virtually died in south Wales. There are fewer dogs to be saved. There are routinely put down after lives of service. A greyhound cross that I once had as a family pet was a rescue dog. She was one of a litter of six abandoned and thrown in a bag in the lake at Tredegar House. Luckily they were all rescued and survived as domestic pets.
The monsoon struck briefly at mid-day. It soon passed and a worthwhile day was had by all.
