Summer has been slow in coming, without doubt it has now arrived with a bang. (very hot weather). Fortunately, this being U.K., it will probably cool down in a few days. To all of you that attended dog shows this weekend, with its extreme temperature, I hope you have all managed to stay hydrated, and not suffering any side-affects.
We have received our copy of “The Saluki” the magazine of the SGHC. Many thanks to its editor Diana Klein for putting together yet another beautifully presented, interesting publication. The first thing I noticed when opening the envelope with the magazine was the cover. The colours are bight and vivid with the background an inset of the foreground which is a plate made by Kutahya Pottery. It is a hunting scene. The pottery production in Kutahya dates back to the 17th century and is made of fine white earthenware. Credit goes to Karen Fisher for supplying the photo of this dish which she bought in Turkey. Article are varied as one would expect from a publication of this quality. In Diana Klein’s editorial she states: “Our series on Saluki Activities continues with this issue with Mike Strong’s article on Lure Coursing. John Davies gives advice on how to go about buying a Saluki and Michael McCormick Smith gives us the top ten reasons why a Saluki may not be the choice of dog for you. Health issues are covered by (The late) MaryDee Sist who writes about Heart Research in Salukis.

One question that came to mind after reading John Davies article on “Buying a Saluki Puppy” was how many Saluki owners actually give annual injections? It would be interesting to hear.
I have received a notification from David Crane that there is a change in the venue for the AGM of Saluki Welfare. This is to give more people the opportunity to attend this very important meeting. Hopefully when it is available, I will be able to publish the ‘agenda’ in these notes. Any member of the SGHC, NSC or owning a rescued Saluki through the SWF is eligible to attend.
‘’Saluki Welfare will be holding their AGM on Saturday 14th August subject to Government regulations. The meeting will commence at 1pm and is at the Drayton Village Hall, Lockway, Drayton, Abington OX14 4LF Anyone wishing to submit items for the agenda should do so by Friday 23rd July to firstname.lastname@example.org’’ Please wear a face covering.
