A chance encounter with an elite athlete

2015/01/img_0451.jpg
My first stop to meet this chap,in prime condition and an impressive beast up close.Calm as could be…
Much like any sprinter ,you can see the strength and power in the enviable relaxed gait(or as an old creaking runner I envy it anyway!)
..I always feel a little ill at ease around these beauties not for fear ,don’t be intimidated by the muzzle,more the knowledge so many are treated horrendously on retirement ..or when their functionality is past.Their are many greyhound rescues all around the country …quite often where racing and coursing thrive..hmmm call me cynical but I see a trend!
Check out some rescues … You’d be surprised how good a pet they make…
