    Jessie

    This perfect wee girl has found herself a wonderful home💖 Jessie has settled in so well and so quickly her new Dad can’t praise her enough. Fantastic, brilliant, amazing were a few words used to describe her. 😍She loves everyone she meets and has been fine with any other dog as well. A little diamond 💎 dog. Thanks as always to Michelle for taking her into the kennels, Kate for being a great foster Mum and also the folk who helped transport Jessie up to Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    knitted snood patterns

    I found this Knitted coat pattern. This is the basic pattern I got from Greyhounds in Need Charity shops sometimes sell "odds and sods" of wool cheaply that may be suitable. They may also be able to sell you very cheaply mens neck ties that are too grotty to put on display; 2 of these with the thin ends sewn to the make coat as in step 9) make good alternative belly bands. • Size 8 or 4mm needles or 5mm and 6mm • 500g ball of Arran wool or suitable thick wool. 1) Cast on 100 stitches in garter stitch and knit for 24 inches. I did the coats in double rib ie: 2 knit 2 purl but that’s just a preference. Divide neck as follows: 2) With right side facing, knit 43 stitches then cast off 14 stitches which will be centre of the neck. 3) Knit the remaining 43 stitches from the left hand needle onto the right hand needle. Shape neck as follows: 4) Starting at beginning of row knit 43 stitches then slip remaining 43 stitches onto stitch holder. 5) Starting at neck edge decrease one stitch every alternate row (by knitting two stitches together) until 20 stitches remain, then cast off. 6) Return to remaining 43 stitches on stitch holder and repeat to match other side. Wrong side facing, sew neck ends together. To make belly band: 7) Cast on 1.5 inches in garter stitch. 😎 Knit for 66 inches and cast off. 9) Sew band onto dog coat half way down. (To tie under belly) I don’t do the belly band but knit a wee rectangle to sew on under the belly. I make 3 button holes about 2 inches from the end and then sew the band on and sew on 3 suitable buttons onto the coat to match the button holes. It’s trial and error really to get the length right. Pattern for a Snood Using Arran or similar type wool with size 4/5/6 mm needles. Cast on 70 stitches and knit in double rib, 2 knit 2 purl.. Continue for 10 to 14 inches depending on the size required. About 2 inches from the end I increase one stitch at each end of every alternative row. This is to make the snood a snugger fit round the neck/shoulder area but not necessary if you don’t want to. . Over sew seam on the wrong side leaving a gap in the middle if you need a hole for the lead/collar attachment. I over sew the side of this in blanket stitch to make it stronger. You can experiment with different colours and stripes etc as you like. It is def. easier than I have made it sound and the more you do the easier it becomes. The coats do take a while and a word of warning is not to make them too long as they do stretch a bit when the dog is moving. Ideally measure to about a couple of inches from the root of the tail. Great fun and you can do it while watching telly !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To add the snood part onto the coat Pick up 70 stitches from round the neck of the coat Knit in double rib as for the snood pattern but don’t do the increasing part in the last 2 inches. Sew up as before.. This is for a plain coat with snood but you can do your own patterns as you desire or not. Start with simple stripes or a different border. I did the border in garter stitch and then change to double rib for the remainder of the coat. Just experiment yourself and do what you find easies

    Beth

    This gorgeous little girl never made it to the Homeless pages. She came to the attention of Michelle at the kennels and she has fitted so well in the house and with all the other hounds that she’s going nowhere. Beth is a cuddly, friendly wee girl who has a cheeky side just starting to flourish now. Welcome to the FF Club Michelle and Ian. No one saw this coming

    This handsome boy ❤️never made it onto the Homeless page. There was an older gentleman who was looking for a pal to share his life with and Ron fitted the bill 😉 After a long journey up to the far N E of Scotland Ron has settled in really well and very quickly😂 He’s found all the sofas and beds in the house, has a big garden to play in and lovely walks to enjoy. Happy days ahead Ron 😍 Thanks to Michelle who took Ron into her house for a few weeks and to all the people who helped with the mammoth transport

    Bella

    This gorgeous wee baby has found her Forever Home rather quickly Her Foster Mum has decided that she's such a special girl that she can't give her up. Bella was a very timid, scared wee soul when she first came into Michelle's kennels a good few months ago but with patience and time she has blossomed into a cheeky fun girl to be around. She loves other canine company and has a lovely greyhound sister called Zoe who has helped her gain confidence daily. Bella has charmed everyone who has met her. Be happy beautiful girl enjoy your new life with your lovely family. Thanks as always to Michelle and to anyone who helped Bella on her way to happiness. Welcome to the FF Club Dawn, the best Club ever.

    Daisy

    This beautiful girl has found herself a top home with another SGS Greyhound for a friend. Daisy has gone to live with Ben and has settled in really well in a very short time. Ben's Mum wasn't sure if he would like another hound in his home but it has worked out perfectly and in fact Ben has calmed down when out walking with his new ' beau ' alongside him. Daisy's new Mum and Dad couldn't be happier at the outcome and how easy Daisy has been. Happy days Daisy Dog. Thanks as always to Michelle for taking Daisy into her kennels and to Bev, Nick and Fangy for helping Daisy on her way to her new home and t the folk that helped with her transport up to Scotland.
