Coursing greys tend to be quite a bit heavier than track dogs. I've only ever seen coursing events (other than lure coursing) on the tv, its amazing to watch though even on the screen.

What a lovely dog a real stunner

 

yes i landed on my feet when she came along.dont no if she did much on the track think probably 2 timid around the traps, and the bangs etc.but what a dog in the open feild. she has come on a treat since i got her.not bad from a advert asking for a greyhound bitch.and just the size i wanted everything i could ask for.looking at yours you have a very nice one yourself.really cannot understand how anyone can part with one i no i couldnt let her go. and thanks :thumbs:

i no what you mean missie damb shame the life that some get esspeicially with the loving nature they have.i myself used to breed bulls and the hassel and none stop work

with them.i no people seem to be under the impression that a greyhound needs loads of exercise and the rest of it but ive not had an easier dog to keep.somtimes i wouldnt no i had her . :thumbs:

I've walked past people who will pick up thier dogs as we go by because they think that my dogs are evil killers.

 

Paris can't be trusted with some small dogs but she is always under control.

 

Its a shame that some misinformed people give greys a bad name but then I suppose lots of breeds suffer that too. :thumbdown:

got mine from trainer too only thing i havent asked is if she was or ran any.but thats not the thing i wanted to no about mainly health, and what i wanted her for.and same only time i no i have her is food which is rarely noticed now she has setteled down great into the home.even have a pet rabbit in the room went mad for that when we first got her but dosnt bat an eye lid now nor the cats so lucky really.even tho she still runs game :thumbs:
