They looked fiercely focused. I don't want to stand in their way.

Hi Rod,
I hope you didn't put your shirt on rabid red.
Nice capture
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

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
