Yesterday the UK Sighthound Sports held their British Championships. There was a good entry for Salukis which is very encouraging. The weather obliged with sunshine all day, neither cold nor too warm. There was only one incident which caused great embossment for our Lina, she took a tumble on her last run. Fortunately, the only damage seems to be was her ego. Thank you to everyone that asked about her. We also started working on a lure coursing licence for our young bitch. She took to it like a duck to water. Hopefully there will be more youngsters coming up to join in the fun.
Kay, sorry I do not know your surname, made a gorgeous knitted sighthound hat. This was raffled off making £170.00 to be sent to UNICEF to help with their work in Ukraine.

Natasha Hamilton has written about her day: “Roxane JW (Imp Bel) won the UK Sighthound Sport National Championships saluki class. Giving the whippets a run for their money for Best in Field with joint 4th. That’s her 4th consecutive UKSS championship win! To say I’m proud doesn’t cut it. Love this girl with all my heart
Thank you to our judges Karin Koch and Annette Nyeholmnfrom Denmark, and the committee for a brilliant event!
Well done to all the cards of the day!! Always a fantastic day with a wonderfully supportive and friendly atmosphere. Watching them all fly round living their best lives!! Couldn’t ask for a better day out!”
