Welcome to our Guestbook - affectionately known as
The Lamp Post.

Feel free to leave some messages for us, and each other, here. In other words, take a moment to tell us a little bit about yourselves & your dogs.

Small print ;-)

The book is moderated to protect you (and us) against spam, adverts and malicious comments, so your entry may take a few hours to appear on the site - we are sure that you'll understand. Also, if your message is construed to be offensive or unrelated to EGLR and rescue dogs
(in other words "off topic"), it is unlikely to be published.

In other words, no 'babies' and no 'recipes' (unless it's for dog biscuits, or shortbread) ...
p.s. Pip got stuck using the Lamp Post, so we've got some help for you here.

Hi folks,

The electronic version of the newsletter has been set free - it will be landing in your inbox quite soon. The process is not quite as simple as just 'sending' an email to nearly 1000 signatories, so please bear with us, should we hit any snags.

Guest: tea leafs!

im starting to worry now-Michael my saluki has never nicked or counter surfed-i have left a joint of roast beef to cool in the kitchen...and not worried about it!

do you think maybe hes a collie in disguise?

mind you-both my greys have been grub hounds-and Lulu even with no teeth at all will attempt anything that will fit in her mouth!

Abby: Bryn

I was deeply upset becuase unfortunately Bryn did not get on with our two boys. They didn't 'not' get on, but just no interest from our two to play etc...and my Saluki X had to put Bryn in his place a few times, as he does with his younger brother! Alas we are looking for another dog as a playmet for the younger lurcher we have, Hicks. But Hicks just plain ignored Bryn and did not even want to know him. We thinkg it had to do with bryn's size and eagerness to play - a bit too much for Hicks, but even we were shocked. It was most upsetting because the humans in the house fell in love with Bryn, but we think he might need a more boisterous companion, or to be an only dog who gets all the attention. I will be emailing Clare so that she can put something up on here to that effect because we really did love him. Alas the newcomer just has to get on with the 2 lurchers already in place....the miserable pair! Fingers and paws crossed all around for Bryn because he is so lovely in so many many ways...

Guest: Tara

Sorry this is a really awful question to ask but is Tara still with us - according to my reckoning she's 15 which is a good age for any dog let alone one that went through all she did. Only asking because I want to make another donation and thinking about which dog to specify. Hope this doesn't sound petty because I really admire all the hard work you do. Wish I had the time and money to help more.

Beth: Thank you!

Thanks for all the food stealing advice people! I'll definitely try the water one as Macey hates getting wet, much to the amusement of our greyhound that always tries to bowl her into the local lake with him when we're out on walks. I'll keep you updated on the little Minx - good job that she's totally adorable and that we love her to bits especially after she scoffed a freshly baked birthday cake Laughing

Lulu Stevens : food thief

When we got our rescue saluki x lurcher she ate anything she could get her paws onto, she was in the bin and on the worktops. We decided to re-train her -  hee hee hee. Actually what we did was leave nothing out so there was no temptation. We put a lock on the kitchen door because she can open doors easily. Now, she is always going to be an opportunist, but the change is amazing! We can now go out and leave the kitchen unlocked, she no longer jumps up. If we have meat bones (chicken etc) I put them in the bin outside straight away. In short remove all temptation. I feel that our Holly is a less anxious dog because she isn't wondering where the next meal is coming from or worrying about smells from the kitchen that need to be investigated.

Steve: Food Stealing

We have found from experience that food stealing is something of an occupational hazard of lurcher ownership! I understand  that the word 'lurcher' is derived from the romani word 'lur' that means thief. I can't remember who said it but it is very true that people that have lurchers that steal leave things out to be stolen! Not sure this helps very much but we have not yet had one that given the opportunity would not pinch a scrap of food!

Clare: Food stealing

Hi Beth

Something that has worked for me in the past with some of my foster dogs is to put a plastic container of water near the edge of the counter.  If she tries to steal it it will tip up on her and she will get a bit of a shock, and a bit wet!  Obviously make sure whatever you put the water in wont break when it falls on her.  If the cat is helping it might tell her not to bother!!

Hope this is of help.

Beth: Food stealing!

I don't suppose anyone has any idea how to try and stop food stealing do they - little Macey (AKA Minnie Mouse) is a right little minx and will steal anything she can off the worksurfaces - even the stuff pushed right to the back - I don't know if she's in cahoots with the cat and offering him a cut of the treasure if he pushes to where she can reach it but it's driving us bonkers =0 ) She ate half a box of crunchy nut cornflakes yesterday and stuck the rest to her coat after having a good roll in them -Its very hard not to laugh when walking in on a crunchy nut dog! But on a serious note is there anything we can do - we can't leave anything in the kitchen as she seems to get it all! Thanks x

Newshound: Nominate EGLR as charity of the year at Sainsburys

Sainsbury's seeks local charity partners By Mathew Little, Third Sector Online, 8 May 2009 Supermarket will ask customers at each branch for nominations Sainsbury's is promising to create more than 500 partnerships with local charities across the UK. As part of its 140th birthday celebrations, the supermarket has launched a ‘local charity of the year' scheme, giving customers the chance to nominate charities that will work with each of its stores. The firm's convenience stores, large supermarkets and depots will all take part. Customers are being invited to choose a charity through nomination boxes at the front of stores. They can choose any charity, but will be encouraged to support local organisations. The three most popular charities will be asked to do a presentation to a group of staff, who will vote to decide their partner. Staff will support the charity throughout the year through volunteering and fundraising. The scheme has been launched after a trial in Scotland and Northern Ireland last year, which involved 166 stores.
