I do enjoy looking at these old bits of footage. Note the length in the Dachy's legs and the lovely GSD's? Boy I hate what they done to some breeds :(

Are we all wearing hats to the March meeting at Rumbling Bridge? Ardneish can come wi 'Fur coat and nae knickers' if she wishes ;) I must look out my brogues :unsure:

It is sad to see the changes in some of the breeds, but refreshing to see the terriers still trying to knock lumps out of each other.

I'm not keen on the 'on lead' racing, but if someone wants to hold Bryns lead they're very welcome. Might be an unfair handicap as the dogs with lighter owners will have the advantage. Big Tara has used the draggy owner method before, that's why she gets attached to the horsebox :laugh:

I dare you all too! thats a big fat dare, and we want photos

Did you see me in my fur coat wiv my lovely deerhound??
I remember when the Kerry blue terrier men used to bait them up when they were being shown , purposely pointing to wards each other so the judge could check "Keenness"

I often think when looking through old clips how some of them could be in the ring today
if you want more clips I got loads

:)

I wonder if Sid has a spare flapper outfit she could lend me? Problem with skirts, even heavy tweed ones, is that the don't keep you as warm as trousers. Are the boys wearing the +4s

A: I'm not that ancient (although I'm working on it.)
B: I'm not entirely certain I even possess a skirt any more.
C: It'll be too cold anyway.

We do a bit of informal Cani-Cross with out two. In case anyone is not familiar with the sport the dog wears a harness and is attached to you by a bungee cord to a belt. The idea is that you run cross country races with the dog pulling you all the way. The sport originated when Sled dog owners needed a way to give their dogs exercise during the off-season (like Beagles Husky's can't be trusted off-lead).

Paul runs with our two on the beach most mornings. Horses are frequently exercised on the beach so all he has to do is get their noses onto some horse tracks and they take off with him sprinting along behind them. It's a bit noisy, but good fun!

I really do think that there's potential for a new sport there - if Paul had a big kite attached to him I'm sure he'd take off!

Here they are running with me:

Ah excellent another CaniX person. Your dogs really look to be enjoying themselves. I take Banrigh (Deerhound) and Hettie (Lurcher) to events and also run with them routinely in the week. Usually off lead but also in harness. I'm running along by the Grand Union Canal or River Ouzel though. It would be lovely to be able to get out at the coast.

I think you're Scotland based so maybe you'd be interested in a Scottish CaniX competition coming up. It's at Peebles, Glentress Forest on 11th April. Click here for details
Here's me with Hettie.

Thanks for the info. Paul's definitely interested (I'm not fit enough!). We didn't think there were any organized events in Scotland.

This is the first one in Scotland I think. I thoroughly recommend the events and it's a good 6 weeks away - so enough time perhaps for training :cheer: .

There are some excellent runners competing but there is a whole range. Personally I tend come in the last five in my section (OK last two usually) even with a Deerhound + Lurcher pulling! The events are also usually in excellent forestry venues (Crufts is an exception) and importantly for me they cater for my coffee and cake requirements too.

Hope you both enjoy it if you do decide to go. Let us know how you get on. Elise

I'd just like to add that Elise makes me go sometimes (CaniX that is). To say there are some excellent runners may be an understatement. I'm not unfit (I'm no runner either) but I came second to last (last place was my sick (on the day not generally) brother also coerced into running)...
Nobody made us feel bad or anything though and it was fun. There is nothing quite like being overtaken buy someone 40 years your senior who started 10 minutes behind you in a race that only takes twenty ish minutes to complete.
I blame the dog...
No really it is great and I highly recommend it, looking forwards to my next chance to go (yes Elise is standing behind me as I type), no but really I do.
