On Easter Sunday the Wellington greyhound community held its inaugural Blue Ribbon Walk. This will be an annual event to remember the hounds we have lost over the previous year, with the hounds wearing blue collars or ribbons. The blue is in honour of Kojo, owned by Ann and John Pilkington of Upper Hutt, who died the previous weekend, and always wore a blue collar.
Over 40 greyhounds and their owners took part in the walk which drew much attention along the harbour walkway.
