Spotted on my half marathon run in the rain down Dún Laoghaire East Pier. Brightened up a dreary day. Awesome gear in the hounds. Fashiondoggers meet FashionBloggers no doubt! The doggies gear puts the dull conservative running gear of Irish runners to shame. Well done that lady for handling six together! Woof!
“I did a half marathon run”
(Ah fair play. I don’t run a bath these days)
Runs are owned now.
If they don’t win their races they will be put down…
No they won’t they are rescues that are in a loving home AFTER no linger being wanted
These dogs are extremely well looked after, are pets and not racers, the lady that owns them does fantastic work with rescued sighthounds, people should not make derogatory comments without all the facts.
These are all rescue dogs so no, They were all saved but not all are as lucky.
Gobspoo – A) they’re not all greyhounds and B) the ones who are, are ex-racers all being loved for who they are and not how fast they can run. Careful before you go shooting your mouth off.
Just to assure anyone with concerns- all 6 dogs are adored pets. There are two retired racers, one who never raced so rest easy that they are not put down if they don’t win races. All are microchipped, wearing id tags, licenced, very well fed with fresh food, well exercised, living indoors and all cleaned up after. We’d a lovely walk and all enjoyed! I am aware of the outdated law but I am very experienced and very capable of walking the six of them with ease. I’ll put it to you this way, I won’t be dripping any off at the pound just so I can be legal. I’m well able to walk them all and I can afford to take excellent care of them so I’m very happy to care for the six of them. They were very popular on the pier and lots of people came over to say hello and give them a pet ☺
Ah they are just the most majestic & lovely doggies!
Ultan’s humble brags on Broadsheet are gas, in fairness.
– we get it, Ultan, you are quite good at running.
All guile, all humble.
Thanks for the photo Ultan.
Thanks Ultan, lovely picture. Ignore the mumblers and moaners.
+1 people don’t realise when you say these things it has just become normal for you in your life.. not trying to brag.
I have been guilty # runner # addict # tunnel vision
Maximum 4 greyhounds/dogs are allowed by law. No joke
Well there are only 2 greyhounds in this pic so I’d say no law broken.. ;)
Agreed – but it’s both an outdated and unfounded law these days. This particular person rescues ex-racers and has nothing but love and devotion for her hounds. The new draft law doesn’t refer to number of hounds.
Control of Dogs Act, 1986
10.—(1) A person shall not permit a greyhound to be in any public place unless such greyhound is being led by means of a sufficiently strong chain or leash.
(2) A person shall not lead or cause or permit to be led by any one person more than four greyhounds at a time in any public place.
Isn’t it great that we have people like yourself to remind us all of the rules and regulations! Nice for you to have something to keep yourself busy. Keep up the good work x
Ah that’s me and my hounds! We went for a walk and a bag of chips on the pier!
Happy dogs, happy owner, happy days <3 well looked after rescue dogs
Mayor Quimby: how do you know they are all “greyhound”?
DNA tests have be done :)
They aren’t all greyhounds. Get a life.
Mayor quimby, you seem to have a great talent for copying and pasting however they are not all greyhounds for a start. You’re thinking of blood thirsty racers waiting to pounce on a flipping rabbit. They have multicoloured blankets and are walking in unison with their extremely capable owner. Hardly the snapshot of danger. Some of those dogs are a mix of breeds one of which has saluki crossings and although yes there are some greyhounds there id take a minute out of your clearly busting schedule and go back to google and type in how many cross breeds you can walk at once either that or actually find something better to do at 3.11 pm in the day than come one and take shite when you should really just enjoy a nice photo of a wonderful dog owner and her mixed breed brood. #getalife #negativenancy
