Dog Blog: Cruises and Calendars for good causes…

Posted by indigodream on 6 October, 2009

Anyone who reads this blog will know that our two great obsessions are Indigo Dream and our rescue greyhounds, Blue and Lou.

There’s now a great opportunity for you to indulge our obsessions AND raise money for Greyhoundhomer, the shelter where we adopted Lou.

Cruise for Greyhounds

On Saturday 17th October, then again on Sunday 25th October we’re offering a return cruise from Paddington Basin to City Road Basin, taking in the sights of Little Venice basin, London Zoo, Camden Locks and much more. It’s a good 6-hour cruise so we’ll need to set out at 10am in order to make the best of the daylight. We’ll provide a simple lunch on board. There’s no ‘cost’ as such but we’re asking everyone to make a charitable contribution of £20 per head direct to Greyhoundhomer.

Places are limited to 8 people (and their dogs – Blue and Lou will be on board) and we still have a few places left.

If you’d like to join us then reply here or email us on richard at

Once your place is confirmed we can send you details of where to send your donation, as well as details of where we’ll be meeting.

Greyhound Calendars

Greyhoundhomer have produced a fantastic calendar for 2010 – it’s full of cute greyhound photos and at £6 it’s a bargain. Blue and Lou are on the front cover AND are Miss and Mr November. Why not buy a calendar and bring it with you for the London cruise where Blue and Lou will sign it with a muddy pawprint 🙂

Calendars can be ordered from the Greyhound Homer website:

I know that you’ll be being pestered by a multitude of charities in the period running up to Christmas; if you can support one of our favourites then that would be great…..
