Anzac Day 2015

Hi Readers, todays marks the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC forces landing at Gallipoli. We use this day to honour those soldiers that made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe and we also remember those who have fought in all wars since 1918 and those who stand by to protect our freedom today.

I also like to remember all the service animals that perished in these conflicts and present to you the war animals prayer -

The War Animals Prayer
The glamour gone, some scattered graves and memories dim remain:
With his old pals across the field, he’ll never walk again; But yet there’s nothing he regrets as he awaits his Call, For what was done or lost or won, he did his bit-that’s all.

Now as silent as the guns have fallen
Their tired heart resting, closed eyed of loving grace.
We ask in your quiet thoughts of Honourable Remembrance
Your allow them, the animals, to take their long awaited place.


Lest we forget.

Bye for now - Murphy.

Happy Easter

Hi Readers, everyone here at the house of hound would like to wish to all a very happy and safe Easter. Please take care on the roads and remember chocolate is for you bipeds, not we greyhounds.


Its been raining here steadily for a few days so look out for overflows and other flooding risks. Here is one we found when out for a walk.
