Fair comment Graham, but it does look like you've lit the touch paper and ran for cover :- " :lol: But I think you're missing the point of the argument, and that's the breeding or should I say the amount of greyhound in the breeding.GRAHAM PEM said:can i just say non of these comments suprise me in the slightist i have been there done it and got the t-shirt as say.
when i breed a litter of pups the one thing on my mind is what do i want not what does anyone else want and what does anyone else like.
as most people know my only interest is racing dogs on the bends i do go and watch the odd straight meeting but not to often because it does not realy interest me unless i have a good reason like watching some of the pups that i have bred run each to there own i say.
as you can never say never but at the present time i am not looking at breeding anymore racing dogs as work commitments have changed yes i will be keeping the blue bitch out of magical dreams x killeacle reni but that is going to be registerd along with the blue dog in anthony pendleton and andy merridiths name when the time comes.
i know alot of the commnts on here are a bit of fun but quite a few have got abit personal for me the topic was about me mating my great bend dog magical dreams to my greyhound nothing else all i ever wanted for the pups was good homes and that is what i got so all the best to u all.
If we look at the BWRA web site and click onto the date base its clear to see what's causing the upset.
It all starts from poor old Peds Special, that being mated to a full greyhound (Pigalle Glory)
The result of this breeding produced Try One, a first x W/Greyhound, but really it's a bit more than a first cross if you look back into Wally Stag's breeding ie 3 generation's back there's Black Venture another full greyhound.
Now this is where it gets warm under the collar. Try One is mated to Wally Stag result = Tyrone :sweating: at this point in the breeding everything looks like we are playing on a level playing field :thumbsup: in respect of scratch racing.
But now Tyrone is mated to a full greyhound ie Curryhills Kitty :- " this produces Stag Night.
Get ready for it, Stag Night is then mated to another full greyhound ie Tyone Sue, this mating produces Molly Stag, :sweating: Then Molly Stag is mated to yet another full greyhound ie Magical Paws result = Magical Dreams.
Here we go Magical Dreams is then mated to....... get ready for it :lol: another full greyhound ie Killeacle Reni.
So in a nut shell, the breeding starts off by going to a full greyhound, then a gap, then back to another full greyhound another, another, another, and another full greyhound, the result being these pups are full greyhounds.If you like being called a cheat, then race them in the lurcher racing and also in the non peds :lol: thats a laugh for ya.
IMO its time the governing bodies ie the BWRA/NNWRF/IRG put a stop to these breeders.
All the facts to my comments are on the data base for all to see.
