Lure Coursing Trios

What lure coursing should look like:

Trio of whippets taking off from the start


Trio of whippets coursing after the lure

Trio of whippets on the lure


What lure coursing shouldn't look like:

Trio of French Bulldogs about to be released after the lure

 Trio of French Bulldogs walking toward or looking at the moving lure

Single French Bulldog actually chasing the lure

The other two Frenchies decided it wasn't interesting to be out there. One took off at a fast walk back to their trailer (and her bed) while the other went to beg to be picked up. (Can you guess which of the three in the first two pictures is actually running after the lure in the third picture?)

LOL, that is awesome. That would be me and Felix. Just sitting there looking embarrassed and feeling stupid.

Oh, I love it! At least one of the Frenchies had a go:) I'll guess the one on the left?

LOL! That is great! The Frenchies are so adorable, even if they weren't interested in the lure!

They were probably thinking about very important philosophical questions and didn't have time to go after some lure!

the whippets are beautiful to see!

Jean said...

Ah yes, that would be my girls - gave a sniff of the lure perhaps (just in case it is something to eat) and then wander back to bed. Even though they are both border collies/bc crosses, they have never shown the slightest interest in anything requiring more than a modicum of energy.

Koira, Pallo and Martha it is very nice to meet you all.
Martha I expect you are the Queen bee of the house!! MOL that is just how we Diva cats roll.

Mom and Dad hope to visit your beautiful state next year.
Hugs from your BFFF,

Ha!!! Love this :-)

In response to your question about the height to weight ratio: it's weight in pounds divided by height in inches. So in Pallo's case, I think he comes up to 2.4, which actually isn't too bad at all!

Muttsandaklutz: Thank you! I guess Pallo isn't as bad as I thought he was going to be. He seems awfully short and super stocky, but I guess he isn't that bad.
