Second Practice of the Season

On Monday, May 9 we attended the second lure coursing practice for us this season. This time, it was very nice at the Crystal Airport as opposed to the freezing temperatures we experience two weeks prior. It was in the mid-60s and despite a brief shower early, the practice went well.

I ran Glynis once, given her age (almost 9), and I don't want to push it with her. She did fabulous as always and she had a great time. Special thanks to Laurie Erickson fo walking my dogs down.

Here are some photos of Glynis in action.

Glynis walks down wearing her orange muzzle.

Glynis was already looking for the lure...and for me!

Aaaannnnd she's off!

Whippets approach 40 mph very quickly.

Glynis hits stride.

Airborne! That's why we practice at the airport!

Just look at those eyes!

Pont ran twice, just not as far as Glynis as he's still a puppy and it is best to play it safe. Pont also had a great time. No barfing in the car tonight but we still had some drool. Perhaps we are making progress?

Pont walks down.

Pont doesn't wear a muzzle yet so he can 'attack' the lure at the end.

Pont starts to get moving.

That's my boy!

Here are some additional photos of some of the other beautiful whippets in attendance.
