Stop me if I've mentioned this before
but I do have the very softest of spots in the
whole of soft spot land for running dogs
large and small so it will come as no surprise
when you hear that I've just been surrounded
by hundreds of the exquisite creatures and feel
like I may have died and gone straight to heaven
in the process.
I've been nibbled by whippet pups who wouldn't sit
still to have their photo taken.
I've been in the company of lurcher men who
always bring a bottle just in case.
I've seen a Bedlington cross too beautiful for words.
I've been delighted to see young families out
with their dogs.
I've thought very seriously about stealing a van
just for what's in the back of it.
I've seen more saluki crosses than you could
shake a stick at.
I've seen dogs who like to drive .....
..... and others who prefer the back seats.
There's been the rough .......
..... and the smooth,
and just about everything else in between.
They seem to have picked up a good sniff.
I think I'll tag along and see where it goes.
Lure coursing at Raveningham,
it's the only place to be.
