Saturday, october the 26th. the whippets ran at the all race speciality lure coursing of Rougé (Loire Atlantique Brittany).
The drawing lot for the races led Honey and Gwendolyn to run together in the morning. I must say that I was very disappointed because Honey is still babyish and always uses Gwendolyn as a squeak toy. But I was wrong, the lure’s appeal was stronger than Gwendolyn’s and Honey simply ignored her.
On the afternoon, it was with Gwen, my Blanchette, that Honey ran and even if her race was splendid, she couldn’t outdo her cousin’s streches and her score was eaten out by Gwen.
As for Bayou, being, faithfull to his reputation, took the lure in full speed during the last straight line, owning 4 point (of 5 available for the capture).
The best scores of the day were 44 points either for the females or the males (the maximum possible being 53 pts counting the bonus points).

Gwen (Keep on Running Gwynnever the White Enchantress) : 3rd ex aequo of 26 competitors with 42 pts
