The other day Eddy got his nails clipped , ears cleaned and given a bath. LOL He did well till he decided the towel was something that needed to be chased.... so much for towel drying him.

This morning he was loaded into a dog trailer for a short ride to the sprint field with many other dogs for some free running.

Today Eddy is a year old, he's sporting his *new* collar and muzzle.

The other day Eddy got some more basic box training, a massage, nails trimmed and brushed to help him shed his "winter coat".

I am more anxious every day as we approach the day he moves into the kennel, a major event in the life of a future racing Greyhound.




I thought I'd let Eddy ride in the trailer to the sprint field, it's next to the Whirly Gig. I ask if could let Eddy watch as other pups ran. Sure let him watch, kept a firm hand on his collar as pups ran. Then I heard "Eddy is next." "Are you sure? " "Yes he'll go" Ok hand him off to a trainer and grab the camera.....

Took Eddy to the Whirly Gig again the other morning. Eddy and I were following one of the trainers into the WG area, she was carrying the lure preparing for his run. That was MORE then Eddy could stand, yep he made a lunge at the lure! His attempt was short, thankfully I had a good hand on his leash.
I positioned him for a hand slip as the arm and lure came around, he's off and running hard. As the arm slowed Eddy took the opportunity to leap forward !! He got the lure in his mouth AIRBORNE,,,,,,, the clip holding the lure broke. Now he has full control of the lure!! Needless to say he didn't want to let go of the lure and it took some doing to get him to release his prize
GOOD BOY! :D :D :D
Serious box training is now in his future, he's ready for the next step.
I'm pleased with his performance, only next time let's not break something ;-) OK.



Eddy went to the WG Wed morning for his 2nd box start, good news he didn't break anything. ;)

When we were finished at the WG Eddy to the kennel instead of back to the runs. Another step toward being a racer.

His latest video is on the link below......

It's been over a week since Eddy took up residence in the kennel, his transition into kennel is going well. He's been taken to the sprint field for free runs with his new kennel mates and run on the Whirly Gig.

"BIG" NEWS ----

Eddy is scheduled to go to the training track Fri Aug 16th for his 1st trip around the oval. Thanks to the wonderful trainers at the farm I get to "hand slip" him !!!
:D

Eddy's appearance at the training track was delayed due to a minor injury to his paw. After 10 days of rest and getting his paw soaked in warm water & Epson salts he got to free run in the sprint field this morning. After some more free runs he'll be rescheduled to make his first trip around the track.

Today Eddy went to the field for some free running along some of his kennelmates, later the trainers let him play/chase a large Kong ball. He'll probably get a few days off then back to the field for more free runs before he's scheduled for a trip around the track.

:D
