Some track pics

of our crazy hounds

These were taken this weekend when we took our two Whippet's for some straight racing practice. We like to do different things with our dogs and recently started this. We have always AKC and ASFA lure-coursed, but this is kind of new to us. We do it for fun (and titles not that it matters to us because we're not breeders) and because our dogs love it.

If you have ever met a Greyhound / Whippet they are usually pretty calm, but at the meets it's always fun to see their Dr. Jeckyl side come out.

Our's are the smaller red female and the larger male brindle.

Re: Some track pics

Beautiful hounds.

I love sighthounds. A neighbor has two greyhounds, and of course, I have my IW. Another friend has an Afgan, and my wife's best friend has deerhound and also has a Borzoi!

Do any of us lurecourse? Naw, it's too much work. It's easier for me to be the bunny on the 954 and have them all chase me!

They are fun!

Re: Some track pics

Nice pics. My wife's family has Whippets also. She took me to an event similar to that, and I must say that I was impressed.

One of the club founders bought some timing equipment so next time we can see who is faster between the Whippets and the Greyhounds.
