Truly Scrumptious created the topic: Where have you seen a Deerhound?
At the Scottish Deerhound owners day there was much chat about the history of the dog and obviously our very own Deerhounds. Someone mentioned some sights in Scotland where Deerhounds can be found so off I set to Edinburgh in search of 'Deerhounds'.

I am going to post some pics of the hounds I saw and let you guess where they were seen etc. Some of them may not be deerhounds but they do have the charecteristics of being Deerhounds so I will include them for more knowledgeable owners to tell me otherwise!

The 1st post here can be found in Princes Steet:

Special prize for guessing where this special lady lives. An extra brucey bonus for identifying this famous deerhound........

I'm not sure why but your photos dont seem to be coming through properly? I think the first one is Sir Walter Scott and his hound 'Maida' - I only know as I have just been to Abbotsford, his mansion which also has a deerhound sculpture. The other photos look interesting but I only get the top quarter :unsure: - maybe they are too big??

The images are quite large, I've looked at properties of one and it was 6-7 MB, this could take a while to download on a slower connection. You're probably not waiting for long enough.

Hi
I've just resized all the large images down, so should be much faster and clearer now.
Unfortunately at the moment this is a manual process - in IE6 and some older browsers images are displayed in their actual size meaning you see a huge image that breaks the site layout. Very soon the site will re-sample the images on upload. That should save everyone a lot of work and a fair bit of bandwidth!
Thanks for your patience.
Rob
NB For those having trouble viewing this page you may need to refresh the page (press ctrl-F5) to force a download of the resized images.

Woops, sorry folks. I have a new all singing and dancing camera that takes great quality shots but hadn't thought of downsizing images.....

Sorry about that but thanks for rectifying.
