Deerhound Video

Just found out about this terrific video from the 1998 Deerhound Specialty in Finland. Just so you know, the dogs are not fighting, they are playing. Deerhounds play very rough. And the white thing they are chasing is a plastic bag, not an animal. The small black & white dog getting out of the way of the big guys is a Whippet.

That is a great video! Thanks for sharing the link. They moved so fast, and seem to have been having a lot of fun!

The deerhounds look leaner and less massive than my recollection of wolfhounds. Though the one I knew well didn't get his full depth of chest, etc., since his person was too busy to give him enough exercise when just a puppy.

Cate,

What magnificent dogs! Watching them, I can imagine them on the moors and highlands. I wish I knew one in person. :-}

Those things can run! I loved the part where it looked like one was trying to hold the other one's head under water -- like a couple of boys playing. Too funny!

Dear Rogue,

I dreamed about you last night, romping and playing. It was so much fun, except you can run a lot faster than me. Thanks for being my Deerhound. XXOO
