    Stuart,

    Dreadfully sorry to hear the latest diagnosis. Here's hoping for a full recovery.

    Stuart,

    Hope Ronnie makes a full recovery. The rest should allow him to develop and mature and come back a stronger and faster dog as he is just a big pup. Got the dvd done today so will be in the post tomorrow.

    Has anyone heard any news on Diego as he got injured by an absolute idiot after his heat? Patsy was concerned about him and i think he was due to take him to the vets today. Hope there is no lasting damage done.

    Eddie,

    If a man comes up and tells Matt its a whippet, what is he supposed to do he has to take the mans word. He can hardly call the man a liar.

    hit the nail on the head there mate :thumbsup:

    albert you should try to make the lurcher and terrier events that show lurchers for what they are .... working dogs ...not greyhound saturated flimsy dogs ...get the high jump back ... hurdle racing ... and such .... the mourne lurcher and terrier show shows up all the big gamefairs imo and its only been going 3 years ...

    and the main thing get judges who have actually worked a dog and not just talk a good hunt ...

    aye and how many of the dogs have seen a days work ...... bet 3/4 of the dogs that attend shanes have never seen a rabbit, hare, fox or deer ...... which are legal quarry over here .... and i bet those 3/4 of dogs are bred as close to greyhound as possible to up there chances of winning a race

    Your no fun,Stuart,you ought to give him the chance to say how his dogs do what lurchers are meant for,and then we can explain that for lurchers to do there job in the field,there's bound to have been a bit of speed bred into them,and we all know where the speed comes from,don't we chid,it comes from the likes of the dogs racing in the Master Mcgrath Challenge :thumbsup: Don't knock em cause without them you wouldn't have a lurcher to run.Just be grateful that an event has been put on that raises the awareness of lurchers to the outside world,and looking at the pics that Deirdre has put on Albert and co have done a grand job for all you lurcher owners in Ireland and beyond :thumbsup:
