At the Hound Dawg Howliday in Pensacola, FL, Dingo had an
opportunity to run through a lure course.
When greyhounds run, all four feet leave the ground twice
in each cycle of steps. The picture above shows how all of Dingo's feet leave the
ground when her legs are stretched out and the picture below shows how her feet leave the
ground when she is compressed.
This is a very demanding style of running. That is
why greyhounds are sprinters and can not run at high speeds for long distances.
Here is a picture of Dingo waiting for her turn to run.
In the lure course, Dingo chased a white plastic bag
around a field. The bag is tied to a line that wraps abound a system of pulleys that
are in the ground. The bag zig-zags around the pulleys creating several turns.
Dingo had lots of fun!
