Resources for Greyhound owners, knitters &
fundraisers

Welcome to Greyhounds4me, we are mad about Greyhounds, we hope you are too.

My name is Val Charman and I live in Leicestershire, England, with Vera, Rocco and Sam, my 3 retired racers.  Greyhounds have been in my life since 2004 and now I design and knit Greyhound coats, hats and other related items. You will find hand made items in the shop and my knitting patterns are also available, used by many fundraisers for rehoming Charities.

The Greyhounds4me Ezine newsletter has been a regular feature over the past few years with articles from top Canine Behaviourist, Pennie Clayton. .

 You can see a compilation of Pennie's articles HERE.

Shows

Greyhounds4me teams up with Pinkfluffykitty with Greyhound knitwear, collars, coats and bandanas at Greyhound shows throughout the year, in particular the Great Greyhound Gathering, organised by the Retired Greyhound Trust

Charities

We support many Greyhound charities in their fundraising and with publicity in our Ezine newsletters. The gorgeous Danny the READ Greyhound (pictured with his knitted double) visits schools to hear children read and improve their literacy skills





Rehoming

Thousands of Greyhounds retire from racing each year and need to find loving, forever homes.  You can find out more about rehoming on our Charities page, where there are contact details for rehoming Charities in the UK and overseas

Famous Liver Cake Recipe

200g Self raising flour
200g Wholemeal flour
2 eggs
200g Lambs liver – you can use Pigs liver
2 cloves garlic
1 carrot
Enough milk and water to mix to a batter – maybe half a pint

 

Mix together the flour, eggs, milk and water, adding the liquid a bit at a time until it is a batter of medium consistency.

Add the chopped garlic, grated carrot and chopped liver and mix well.

Pour mixture into a greased dish – mine is an oblong pyrex dish about 10 inches by 8 inches by 2 inches deep.

Bake at 180 degrees C, 350 degrees F or gas mark 4 for 30 minutes.

Leave to cool – in a high place! then cut into small squares.

This amount of mixture makes 4 good bagfuls and it freezes well so you don’t have to use it all at once.
