    Hi Debs think you got your wires crossed, i havent asked a question about the stud dog you used with Gyp, you know my thoughts on the breeding its top class cause i have one of my own from bigland boy. Feel it is a shame you have to be one or the other (lurcher/non ped) they are all the same in my eyes, again minorities ruin it for the rest of us. :unsure:

    ok here we go,lol

    yrs ago i would of got drawn right into this and been kicked of now for what i still beleave being the truth so for the last time on this subject i will say how I see it,

    but 1st say well done to kev and debs for putting a great show on with the organisers and if you lot keep goin as you are these will be the next 2 to throw the towel in and there will be non for you down here,

    right,

    1st i looked at leia when di came over to say hello and she was in outstanding condition and the stiches where out so i would question anyone who says she wasnt 100% ok to run,

    2nd this non ped thing,

    i dont agree in runing non peds at lurcher shows against lurchers there NOT lurchers there grews or non peds kev and debs have said they will put on an event to run the non peds against each other and thats why where gettin this bitchin non ped owners want to run against underdogs not each other bit unfair in my eyes,

    i used to enter my dogs in every event like some others do and many a show walked away with a trophy from every event with the same dog,i have never seen the non ped owners doing this why?????

    why do they wait all day just to run there non peds in a lurcher race???why not participate in everything like a lurcher does,cant have it both ways.

    iam not having a go at anyone here just stating as i see it,but i have asked this question many time before and maybe 1 of you will answer me,

    kat is a 22 inch rough coated lurcher she beat more non peds then they beat her by a long way now why when i asked to race her at a non ped track did they say NO???????

    so why not just all get on support the racing and the local shows and take these events from strengh to strengh iam as competitive as the man or women standing next to me but theres no reason to slag and slate another persons dog the animal just trys to please us i couldnt see most of the owners runin up a track in the middle of summer to please the dog,or jumping over hurdles for a rossette,lol

    I think the organizers,should be congratulated for attempting to ensure racing for all.I still cannot see what the problem is with whippet/greyhound crosses,taking part in any event.At the end of the day they are bred to chase and hopefully catch,which in my eyes is what lurchers are all about.Feel really sorry for any whippet/greyhound owners in Cornwall,they are very restricted,if they want to race in non ped racing.The price of fuel means folk will have to pick and choose where they run.Agree with Mark,that some of the best shows in the country took place in Cornwall,and there were a few more whippet/greyhound owners who took part then also.Rather than discriminate against them,wouldn't it be better to welcome them in and if Kevs idea is the way forward to encourage them to come,then good on ya :thumbsup: Some folk are under the misconception that whippet/greyhounds can run in a straight line only,and wouldn't be able to jump things put infront of them i.e. hurdles. This is so wrong.Just give owners the chance to take part,and i'm sure some will take you up on the offer. :thumbsup: I know you don't want to comment again Mark (w00t) :lol: but which non ped club,wouldn't give you the oppertunity to give Kat a run?We have quite a few lurchers come and run at our club.Providing you've schooled your dog and it can run out of traps,would think anybody would be happy to time your dog and then perhaps give it the relevant yardage needed,should you want to give it a race with non peds.Unless ofcourse it's over 32lb in weight,then ofcourse it would have to run off a level break :thumbsup:

    wasn't at this show so don't know the ins and outs of it, but kev and debs always seem to do a good job and are fair to everyone. i know my little lurcher, a 19 inch bedlington whippet, doesn't really have a chance racing against whippets and non-peds but he enjoys it and always tries hard. at the end of the day the main thing is he can catch rabbits and is a good worker. think people take racing at shows a bit too seriously is meant to be a bit of fun! :thumbsup:

    i think the main objection is that grews aint lurchers and when people run shows they advertise them as lurcher shows ,if on the other hand they described them as long dog and lurcher shows the argument would dissapear, and run 2 dog heats in straight racing would even it out,just my opinon,

    in my opinion they are all mongrels.

    there is no pedigree for a lurcher or a grew or a longdog.

    times change, dogs get faster, just like athletes..

    to me any dog that brings food to the table regardless of its breeding is a lurcher.

    sorry i mean mongrel (w00t)

    anyway years ago grews had bull bred into them to make them more muscular.

    so is a bull breed a working dog. who cares.

    the old days are gone and things have changed, people are more serious about there racing now.

    gone are the days of the lure being powered by a jacked up car with the tyre removed

    and a couple of hay bales at the end, being chased by a couple of collie crossess. (proper lurchers ) (w00t)

    sorry mongrels (w00t) (w00t) (w00t) (w00t) (w00t) (w00t) (w00t) (w00t)

    just my opinion (w00t) (w00t) (w00t) (w00t)

    but would there be an argument with,someone who races a saluki/deerhound (longdog) cross.? :- and if Mark was so happy with Kats performances,why did he want to speed up her pups by mating her with a non ped.You would have thought that he would have gone type to type,to hopefully reproduce what he's got already :thumbsup: but then if he initially intended to carry on going to shows,and wanted to be in with a chance of winning,he had the right idea,use one of the best non peds,that not only could run (holds the record for most titles),but could also produce the speed in his offspring and hopefully Kats pups would be in with a chance against whippet/greyhound crosses at shows. ;) Can't for the life of me see why you changed your mind Mark :wacko: :lol:
