No mate, I'm a home bird these days, but I'm a bit jealous of my missus who went north of the Arctic circle and did a bit of husky mushing, I'd like to have a go at that; She still likes to travel, bu

I know people seem to get a bit funny when talking about foreign blood and im definitely no expert. But I can tell you that here in Spain the galgos are all worker to worker and they get a fair bit of work as its all legal over here. Obviously there's the coursing events but they've always been used as pot fillers too.

My galgo is male, 1y 3 months old, around 26" tts and weighs about 26kg. Compared to my whippet he already has a lot more stamina but is not as explosive. Has much better feet too (pads like leather) and as soon as the ground isn't flat/even he is much quicker than my whippet. Still a bit clumsy and very immature though so got some developing to do. 

Will post a few pics in a few days when my new phone arrives but for now will put a pic of his dam who is from coursing lines. She hasn't actually competed herself but is worked outside of competition. His sire, grandsires etc have all competed. 

Another spanish group of breeds that i think are very interesting are podencos. There are various types: ibicenco which is more of a sighthound. Andaluz, which is much smaller and more of a hybrid and maneto which is more of a terrier type dog. They hunt in a very specific way bred for rocky terrain/brambles etc to flush then chase.

Its also pretty common to have galgos crossed with greyhounds with various degrees of greyhound blood for racing over here which they refer to as "galgos cruzados".

At the end of the day I don't think there is a singular best breed as they're all bred for different quarry/terrain etc.

As I said i'm no expert, this will be my first season properly going for it but I've always been interested. A big learning experience for me and the dog I hope.

It's not just foreign blood people get funny on here about mate. Half the time you're in danger of being burnt at the stake as a heretic, just for having a different opinion to someone else  😄. ................ joke fellas :ninja:
