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!)

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.

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 Smile

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 Wink
