Meet Lucy our competition winner!
In December 2019 we held a competition for one lucky pooch to become the face of City Hospice’s charity dog walk, Wag this Way 2020. We were thrilled to receive many fantastic entries. The winner, Lucy was chosen by popular vote. We interviewed Luke Medwyn-Jones, owner of Lucy, our competition winner.
“We want to support City Hospice as they are a wonderful hospice based in Cardiff and support patients within the local area, they help manage symptoms and provide support for all patients. They offer care and support to patients within their own home environment and they work tirelessly to support patient wishes. City Hospice is always looking for new volunteers to help and support their work – details can be found on the website.
We entered the Wag this Way competition as we wanted Lucy’s pointy face on the posters and event leaflets as a way to show how amazing adopting a greyhound is and that they make the best pets.
We adopted Lucy in September 2017 from the Lancashire branch of the Greyhound Trust. We passed our home check and visited the kennels to meet our potential new family member and Lucy was the second greyhound we met. We’d always said we wanted a black greyhound, as we know black dogs are always the last to be picked, and jokingly said we wanted a greyhound with at least one white paw and Lucy has three white ones.
We loved our photoshoot with Tom Harper in the heart of Cardiff. Bute Park is huge and a great place for a dog walk and adventure. It was great to meet Daisy, Pepsi and Tom face to face. We met up with Dog Furiendly founder and owner Adele for lunch with Tom after the shoot at a local dogfuriendly restaurant.
Lucy and I are looking forward to meeting so many dogs and dog lovers. We are really looking forward to helping help promote the amazing work that the City Hospice do in Cardiff and also help raise money for them to continue their fabulous care work. Oh and not forgetting the goodie bag from Burns Pet Nutrition! Lucy will be rocking her Burns bandana for the event.
People should definitely sign up for this event, as firstly, so they can meet Lucy and give her ear scratches and secondly, that it’s a really great way to meet other dog lovers, to socialise and exercise your dog, all while raising money for a local charity.
There’s also free entertainment and a variety of food stalls for everyone to browse and support other local brands and companies – see you there!”
