British Sighthound Field Association

 
 
 

September 24th 2017

The meeting was busy but ran well on the whole and the dogs were on good form and clearly enjoying themselves.

There was an unfortunate incident when a whippet (Softouch Ever So Clever) dived on the lure at the end of the course and got one of his back legs tangled in the line resulting in a serious cut. Luckily, Liz Hales was on hand with her first aid skills and the dog was patched up enough to be taken to the vet. Caroline reports that there is no tendon damage as feared but a vein was cut which explains the large amount of blood. After stitching he has returned home and should make a full recovery.

We all know that juggling dogs and racing jackets while trying to get to the start on time can be challenging but can I please remind members that trying to hold the lead of a large sighthound, at a lure coursing event, in your teeth is not the best idea, even for a second. On a related note, if anyone found a (human) tooth could you please pass it to a committee member and we will return it to it's rightful owner!


Mention must go to James Newman who worked hard organising the trials and keeping things moving with the competition runs, Hilary Tringham who, for the third month running, was a great help with the results, Carmel Smith for her work centre of field and Graham Daw who helps set up the course and then spends the day taking care of our dogs and a host of other tasks allowing me to concentrate on the admin.

Lastly, thank you to our members for turning out to support us.
