This afternoon we were treated to a visit from Maple Crayford who is a greyhound dog.
Mrs Crayford and Jacob told us that Maple was born in 2004 and that she was a racing hound until 2007 when she was dumped and then rescued by the Crayford family from Tia Greyhound Rescue.
At home Maple eats healthy dog biscuits three times a day and drinks water. She also goes for walks three times a day and sleeps in a basket with an old blanket. Maple's fur is not waterproof like most dogs so if it is raining she needs to wear a coat to keep her dry.
Mrs Crayford told us that Maple cannot be let off the lead when they are out walking as she chases anything small and furry especially rabbits and she runs very fast too.
We all enjoyed meeting Maple as we have heard a lot about her during out pets topic.
Thank you to Mrs Crayford, Emily and Jacob for letting us all meet her.
