    Shame they're not holding the finals at a more central location :( :blink:

    Is the train a possibility, Josh? You can take a rucksack and Flash and get a ride to Sandringham from the nearest station :unsure:

    race where you like di she is a cross breed so you cant be penalised for her breeding :thumbsup:

    at the end of the day they are only mongrels and it supposed to be a bit fun :thumbsup:

    I know that Debs and people have been racing registered non peds down here for years, ;) the lurcher owners argument is, if they came to a non ped meeting they wouldn't be aloud to race there dogs, so why should i be aloud to race Leia at lurcher shows, :wacko: it doesn't matter to me, i know what she can do, ;) and thats all that matters. :thumbsup: di

    I can see both sides because I have lurchers (as opposed to long dogs) but I really love to watch Leia, Chopper and dogs like them race, so I've suggested in the past that it would be a good idea to have two divisions for racing ......... one for the long dogs and one for lurchers?? There's no doubt that the long dogs have an advantage over the common or garden lurcher, even if it is only by a short distance.

    That way nobody can complain because they'll be racing against their own kind :thumbsup:

    I think there's enough of each type of dog in the south west to make it worthwhile because I suspect that more lurcher folk would run if they thought their dog was in with a chance?

    It's a difficult one isn't it? I'll always run my lurkers against non-peds because they only have 1/8th of utility breeding in them, but it might just give them the edge on stamina one day :thumbsup: :lol:

    The only problem if it was categorised as long dogs my deerhound/greyhound (big hairy thing) would be in with the whippet/greys as they are also longdogs, :thumbsup: could be academic with him as he just sits on the start line & refuses to chase a plastic bag as it hasn't got legs :lol:

    They used to split straight racing into rough & smooth coats at Chatsworth maybe thats an idea. :))

    Personally I don't mind running my 2 hairy boys against any lurchers/longdogs, who knows......every dog has it's day :lol:

    Like you said Di - if us lurchers were to turn up at a non ped track to race againts registered non peds we wouldnt be allowed to run.....So i think you either need to be a registered non ped racer and do that or a lurcher racer..... not do both ;) But that is just my opinion which you already know :teehee: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    I dont see why the shows cant do a seperate race for you.....no different than fitting in terriers, whippets or family dogs :clown: :thumbsup:

    I see your point, but what about the ones that are not registered with any non-ped organisations, as you i have a pup which i would like to race in the summer,

    where would she race, the outcome would be the same if she raced with lurchers, if she won that is, there are a few racing lurchers that have very little other breeds in them literally, you would have to go back quite a few generations to find it, how does that stand, this has been an ongoing thing for years, of which has caused lots of bad feelings, as mao has said every dog has its day, i see it as a day out meeting likewise people and enjoying it, and if you win something thats a bonus to the day, :thumbsup:
