Yardley

I haven't posted many greyhound photos lately so I'm rectifying that with these most recent. This is Yardley at her first ASFA trial. Here she is before running off for 1st place. Unfortunately she lost the run off to Val's Charis but we were very proud of her for running so well and were happy to see Charis win as she deserved it. There were 7 greyhounds entered. So both girls did great for their first trial.
Yardley has to have her morning coffee to give her that extra energy to run. Just kidding. Yardley never needs extra energy. The picture of her at the table in Phil and Cindi's trailer at the trial is pretty funny though. Really she loves to run and needs no encouragement or caffeine.
Next weekend she is entered in Canadian Kennel Club Lure Coursing and a Show! This should be interesting as she isn't really show trained! We better get to work on that. Will update on how she does.

Another knitter with sighthounds. I have 2 Scottish Deerhounds and a Whippet. We used to go to a lot of lure trials & hope to start again in the Fall.
