  1. What are you afraid of?

    Correct answer. Close the thread.

    With greyhounds, in many cases it's just a huge change for them. . Some struggle to make the adjustment. Toby (black face) never raced, never left his paddock, kennel or training track and was never socialised. He came straight from there to us. It's been a big job to introduce him to living in a house, socialising with other dogs and general doggy behaviour. He's not quite there yet, but in general, like most greyhounds, he's just a big happy clown. Sandy (our first greyhound) picked everything up practically immediately. Arthur (our second geyhound) took a few months. Percy (grey face) had been fostered and stayed in various houses before finding his 'forever home ' with us. He didn't need any training at all and happily settled in within a couple of days. And yes, you're right. In my experience, any greyhound, whippet or lurcher owner will always stop to chat with any stranger that has another sighthound in tow. We do tend to be a bit 'breedist', as do our dogs!

    As I've said before, there are lots of retired racing greyhonds available for rescue. £100 donation to the rescue charity usually covers the cost of the neutered dog, and the particular charity usually does its best to match the dog to your own particular circumstances.

    All hail the troll.
  6. Oor Nicola Sturgeon thread.

    Be fair. Nicola said most of these words, just not in that particular order. Phil should be commended on putting together another great meme.
  7. When will indyref2 happen?

    Don't feed the troll.
  8. P & B Curry Club

    Another vote for the Khukuri at Haymarket. We always go there when we're in Edinburgh. Current favourite is Heera in Renfrew. It's a bit out of the way, but just off our usual route home from the central belt. Usually have Chicken Dara Puri (medium curry with chicken breast in a lamb mince sauce) but every dish I've ever had has been excellent. Would recommend to anyone using the Normandy Hotel as a carpark before flying from Glasgow.
  9. The SPFL Angus League ££1 2018-19

    I have to say I'm disappointed. Our lack of firepower and shaky defence is bound to cost us.

    My brother used. to have a flat in Froghall View in Aberdeen. Interesting name, but it didn't help when he was asked for previous addresses when applying for his first credit card.
  11. BBC bias

    Have you ever tried to answer a serious question?
  12. BBC bias

    So, are you suggesting that our own TV producers are too hopeless and parochial to produce anything better, or that BBC Scotland (and by extension, the commercial channels that serve us) are not provided with sufficient funds to provide the range of programming we deserve? I see that as a binary choice. If it's not, please provide a detailed explanation of your third option.
  13. By election updates

    It's hardly a shock. In 2017, the 4 previous councillors were as follows: First preferences in 2017 Con 36.6% 2841 votes Lab 16.8% 1305 SNP 15.8% 1229 SNP 15.0% 1165 So there were 2 SNP, 1 Tory & 1 Lab elected on 30.8%, 36.6% and 16.8% respectively. On these figures, the Tories were always favourites to win the seat from Labour.
