Right then. The Alliance for the Working Longdog/Lurcher (AWL).
1/The title Alliance means: "an association of groups with a common aim" Is that not what we are and to become?
2/The name "Longdog" is an umbrella term that covers any type of sight hound, including, lurchers,whippets, saluki X greyhounds, Greyhounds, Salukis, etc. Is this not who we are to represent?
1/ Would the title be acceptable to the majority?
2/ would another title be more to the point, whilst still representing all types of Longdogs, Sighthounds etc?
The Running Dog Alliance, (RDA)
1/ it covers all running dogs.
2/ the name means what it say.
1/ too broad a title, there are many types of running dogs that have no involvement in hunting, Track Greyhounds, etc
2/the name "Running dog" would be next to impossible to explain as a term for hunting.
The longdog alliance;
A none starter, too similar to the Alliance for the working Longdog.
That there may be others I understand, but time is of an essence
After this post i suggest a deadline of twenty four hours for any other suggestions, with full reasoning and merits. We will then get on with forming a steering group, and I will get on with changing all the documentation.
