  HE AIN'T NOTHING BUT A HOUND DOG

We welcome our very own Hound Dog Elvis.

Elvis was born in Ireland on the 15th August 2012 with a racing name of Indalo Force. He was sent to Peterborough in England to start his career which was very short lived.

After six races he suffered a bad knock and thereinafter refused to race again so at not even two his racing days were over.

In Jersey, Julie and Phil and the girls were grieving over the premature loss of Ozzy a big black boy they had had for four years. He just took poorly and within two days they had to let him go, so although this is a happy day for the family it is also quite emotional as Elvis is also a black boy albeit not a big as Ozzy.

Well the trip was going according to plan until they tried to land in Alderney to drop the Deerhound pup off - Alderney, well it was closed!!! low cloud making it unable to land. Had I not mentioned the pup, well Titus is 12 weeks old and we were helping Elizabeth out by dropping him off.

Anyway it was not to be so when Elvis was delivered safe and sound to his new mum Titus has to come and spend the night with all of us. Thankfully, well I say that with tongue in cheek, as I would have loved to have kept him, Alan managed to get Mal and pup off to his new home at about 9.30am on Sat.

Just had a lovely report from Julie and the girls, Elvis is doing fine, bit restless last night but Julie slept downstairs with him. He is very inquisitive and has had a couple of mad moments and last I heard he was asleep on the sofa. He is nothing like Ozzy other than being black.

So another trip done and dusted and once again our thanks to Sharon from Brambleberry not only for finding Elvis but for bringing him down. Unfortunately Chris our usual pilot is out of action at the moment bit radioactive I believe, so our sincere thanks go to Alan Nutbrown who helped us out with a trip that proved longer than expected!
