Thank you for an excellent and informative presentation Susan. I have been a lover of sighthounds for several years and our lovely lurcher came to live with us from a rescue centre about 5 years ago. He has his challenges but is also a wonderful dog and has inspired me to learn as much as possible to give him the best possible life. This is the first time I have had the pleasure of watching a sighthound-specific presentation and it has been very helpful. Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge on these special animals.Read Less
