A day at the (whippet) races
They looked fiercely focused. I don't want to stand in their way.
You are something, Rod. I was bitten by a freaking mini Pinche, three weeks ago...Not very happy to see the fwangs, ma frend. But the title was so guid I came to see.
What an amazing capture Rod !! The expressions on their faces is priceless !!
The one on the left looks just like the mother of a girl I used to go out with from East Ham! .............................great action image, Rod..........did you win anything!!!?? regards, phil
I hope you didn't put your shirt on rabid red.
Great action shot Rod, but the middle dog is staring at my throat and scareing me some I'm off now to look at Carols' butterfly
'Take The Power Back'
Flat cap fun
great title Rod and a good action capture
Indeed Dave ! the racing whippets are amazing dogs , all different sizes and they are actually very sweet natured .................. they just look fierce here because they are working so hard Phil i didnae see any betting had a guid day at the dugs
I like the one with the muzzle, must be a hard case. It all looks a bit like what happens when I criticize one of your skies.
Great action photo Rod love it. The pooch on the left , the black one, looks stunningly like my dog, and most people's first reaction is "aaaaaargh!" But they have to know she is daft as a brush adores children, curry and pubs . Steve ( I hasten to add we don't bring her up on curry and beer she just salivates at the smell of both!)
Yeah Steve i had a whippet years ago , they are lovely gentle dogs and they seem to love their days racing
Alan , not quite right but i will keep yer comment for one later in this series lol ...............all will be revealed
A great effort at dog racing photography Rod,my first attempt was no way as good as yours
The hardest sport to get good images is dog racing,your have done a brilliant job!
A super image Rod. I've never seen Whippet racing since I was a lad. We used to be paid sixpence for turning the old bicycle wheel which would pull the cuddly toy over the recreation ground when training these wonderful animals.
Yeah Nathan its dying out , theres only a few pockets left round the country usually in mining country obviously. the rag is pulled electrically now lol. Cheers Dennis i know this is not totally sharp but i love the expressions on the dogs faces !! It's my opening gambit o master o the hounds
so is that a bandage....hence the muzzle?
used to watch the whippets in my local park when I was a nipper...great fun
Nah Alan i think its tape for either for an old injury or i think more likely for added grip . it was really hard and dry for the dogs running which is not ideal
My Nan and Grandad had a whippet, brings back fond memories Rod, nice action image
I love this all action shot Rod - these lovely dogs look so focused, - i really like their nobbly heads when you stroke them (our friend has seveal along with a hand full of greyhounds) and yes they are so gentle. Love it.

Phil's right........ i went oot wi the mother!!nice one Rod
Ha ha Ken , been wi a few dugs masel
Great action shot, Rod. Wonderfully taken.
Great expressions Rod! I won't show this to my fox terrier; she would want to join them, and probably would get the rabbit by going the other direction and waiting for it
That's often how these dogs are worked actually
Brilliant capture, Rod, and a real sense of movement as well.
Nice one my friend.
Rod, great image.......must have seen me and thought there's dinner....
