We had a busy day today. Myself and Mark set off with a truck load to Jane Houftens brilliant Dunham schooling track. A stop off on the way with Salacres Fever and Salacres Eva to have a couple of minor procedures carried out. Gladly all bar one of the pups yet again chased , most with good promise. One pup in particular stands out at this moment in time , he looks like he could become a very useful greyhound , time will tell. Keep an eye on the blog for further updates , but for the moment , he shall remain nameless ;) The pup that didn't chase we actually decided to leave at Dunham and in the capable hands of Mick Livesey for some extra tuition. Micks the best person in the UK for the job (well so he tells us) , so it is with great faith that he's left with the task of awakening the derby champion within.
After schooling we had just enough time to fit in a couple of big breakfasts , very nice too , then back off to collect Fever and Eva from the vets. Fingers crossed everything has gone well with their procedures and we see them back on the track in the not too distant future. It's a shame with Fever in particular. It's been very stop start with him so far and after winning his heat of a maiden competition at Notts on Monday night he would have been due to run in the final next Monday. Unfortunately he'll now be snuggled up in his bed , dreaming about chasing that bunny. Still a little TLC and he'll be back racing in no time.
We'll be off to Romford on Friday night with 3 open runners. We'll be represented by Salacres Town , Salacres Vision and Salacres Sparky. 3 of the magnificent 4 who all won at Henlow last Thursday. Things look a little more difficult this week so don't be going too mad on those doubles and trebles.
Thanks for reading and don't forget we've always got space for a decent open class dog or two , maybe next time we can make it a 5 timer with your help. Feel free to call me on 07812 13 16 18 anytime , or give Mark a ring on 07877 393 829.
