Tim is usually nervous of other dogs but he is quite fond of chocolate labradors. Unfortunately this fondness is sometimes expressed in trying to chase them - even if they don't want to be chased. So this evening on the beach he went into chase mode with this particular labrador and her owner was getting quite worked up about it and yelling at me to get hold of him. Well, have you ever tried grabbing hold of a sprinting greyhound? So what did I do? Take photos of course!
Unfortunately the light wasn't bright enough to get sharp shots, even with the flash, so the top one is a bit blurry but you get the idea that he was having a lot of fun.
I think the lady with the labrador was getting a bit worried because he was running at speed at her too and it is a bit disconcerting when a greyhound runs straight at you full tilt. The thing to remember is just to keep still and the dog always veer off at the last minute (hopefully).
Anyway, he did stop eventually and I was able to grab hold of him and put him on the lead.
And if she ever reads this I apologise if I didn't seem too concerned but even though he was getting quite excited I knew he wouldn't cause any harm to you or your dog.
Shot no 2: cheeky grin.
