    Hi Greg,

    May I ask where is Connewarre?

    Geography is not my strong point.

    Hope the greyhounds are doing well.

    G'day Twirly,
    Connewarre is basically between Geelong and Torquay (start of the Great Ocean Rd) in the state of Victoria, Australia.
    The dogs are fine. Currently we have one learning to race, one about to race and one old girl who is over racing who is actually by an Irish sire who stands in the UK. They find the summer a little warm here but are spoilt and love running and swimming at the beach. I check their gait patterns in the sand to put a podiatric slant on it for you.
    I was in the UK in 2003 and actually saw some racing at Wimbledon - the English Derby heats.
    Where exactly are you? and who is your premier league team?
