The new video has arrived!

Harry’s Friends: The Great Global Greyhound Walk in York (2018)

Here it is… the new video from Team Pointy in York!  It’s called “Harry’s Friends” and maybe (if you look closely) you’ll spot your greyhound in there somewhere… plus there’s tons more furry faces as the credits roll, so keep watching to the end.

The short video covers the huge, record breaking 2018 walk and also a little about the work of Candy Cane Rescue.  All in all, it’s a great reminder of the day we met Harry at the Great Global Greyhound Walk in York.

So what’s happening in June??

As many of you will know if you have got as far as this website, we have a monthly sight hound meet up on the first Sunday of every month. The next one is Sunday 3rd June.

As many of you will also know, York throws itself into the Great Global Greyhound Walk! This year it is happening on 10th June. The theme this year is ‘Fall in love with a greyhound’.

I can hear many of you wondering whether we are having two walks in two weeks?

The answer is yes! Not everyone can get to the GGGW so we don’t want you to miss out on your usual monthly walk and so will be meeting as usual on 3rd.

See you there!


Celebrate ‘Dog Day’ with us this weekend (5th November)

Kukir Tihar is the Nepalise Hindu celebration of dogs (part of Diwali) when dogs are garlanded with marigolds and offered treats in thanks for their friendship. You can imagine Team Pointy love this idea so come to the walk this Sunday (10.30 for an 11 o’clock start) and we will give your dog one of our home-made marigold garlands (and treats!).

Getting Ready for the Big One!

It’s nearly time for the big walk of the year. The Great Global Greyhound Walk sees Greyhound and Sighthound owners walking together at hundreds of locations and in countries all around the planet. The York leg of the Global Greyhound Walk is always one of the best attended events in the world and we’re sure this year will be no exception.

Take a look at the promo video below (and do feel free to share it as widely as you like). You may recognise some of the furry, pointy faces as the video was shot primarily in York and was put together by @TeamPointy for the Great Global Greyhound Walk team.

More details on the Great Global Greyhound Walk in York will follow soon…
