Strange times during this pandemic, we are now told to stay at home but we can now go shopping in most all stores. Hairdressers, not yet. Cafés and restaurants are all take-aways. Dog activities have not open yet but we can take the dogs to ‘dog parks’ for a good run. Hopefully the rate of infection will keep going down, the scientist will come up with a vaccine and we will resume our old life. Hope everyone is staying well and we will get together in better times.
This will be my last reminder about sending in adverts for the Saluki Supplement which will be in this paper on 3rd July. If you would like to send in a last minute advert you can try and see if there is still room available. Please ring Pam Coulbert on 01803 712280. Or email Pam on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like a copy of the paper which will include this special supplement then please contact Tina Smith on 0161 709575 or email@example.com.
The Saluki or Gazelle Hound Club have posted a few items. In regards to the SGHC ‘facebook’ page, the administrator as stated;” This page is for questions from members to the Committee and for notifications from the Committee to members. Anything posted on this page should be regarded as confidential and not shared with anyone who is not a member of SGHC.”
Helena Haywood has posted on the SGHC facebook site that entries for the 2021 Calendar Competition will be open on the SGHC Website on June 14. Voting is open to everyone. There will be 141 photos to choose from.
Caroline McCormick Smith has posted that “the Committee had a meeting at the weekend via Zoom which was a new experience for several of us. It was pretty successful thanks to Anna Freegard sorting out the technical side. Anna and Ben Freegard have been co-opted on to the Committee.” “Karen Fisher has taken on the role of Committee Chairman in addition to being Vice-President. We hope to continue with our virtual meetings thus avoiding unnecessary travel and the expense of hiring halls” This has had a warm welcome from comments, I have read, because committee membership will now be available to members living in a larger geographical area.
Next week I will carry on with my ‘influential studs’, looking back at the history of the English Saluki. If anyone has comments on the series please do not hesitate to contact me. I would especially appreciate any additional information on the studs, which always make their existence and contributions more interesting.
