Sniper, that's a blast from the past

I was stopped by a coursing man one time when out road walking he wanted to know about my dogs, and then went on to tell me about all the good dogs he had seen, and how he rated Sniper as the top stamina dog of the lot

I think it was 96 or 97 the year he won the forley, the dog had a nice style of running, I think he was bred out of a pure saluki to a lurcher with s fair bit of deerhound in, not entirely sure thow

Whites are a great day out if there’s plenty to go at, easy pickings for a decent dog when they’re on open moorland with a good way to go, but get them in those deep peat hags with all their holes & tunnels they’re as tricky an animal as you’ll find

I used to run a first cross beddy grey bitch as a coursing dog on small to medium arable, and she was a pleasure, but the linebred saluki stuff are in a league of their own, probably the most capable hare catchers on the planet
