Munty bucks are tough little buggers and put up a surprising fight for their size. If dog grabs them by neck / shoulders, it runs risk of getting a spike in its face / neck and with a leg hold it’s amazing how they will spin round and try to take the dogs shoulder/ flank with their little sharp tusks. Skin like leather to. Good dogs develop the knack of bowling them over and onto the throat like a fox etc.

This thread also reminds me of the days when this site had lots of folk on it that did a lot, knew a lot, and we used to have the odd interesting discussion about hunting. Seems like a very very high proportion of armchair hunters, dreamers and kids on this section now, but I suppose they are the only ones you can safely talk about it, you can’t get in trouble for talking / hinting about the hunting you don’t actually do.

Ok, silly question.

What's the difference between a non ped whippet and a ped one. I take it, it's more than just paper work.

Chinese can be the same for cutting the dog and I once hand to pull a little devil horn out of the dog’s eye socket.

Do you mean a tooth?

ped whippets are obviously kennel club registered but non peds have been outcrossed to another breed (usually greyhound) to increase speed for racing. Whippet racing is big in parts of the UK so dogs are well tested and good non peds are streets ahead of peds for speed, weight for weight and size for size.
