|This is me with my toy pheasant - no pigeons were harmed in this game|
Greyhound ancestors came to the British Isles centuries ago and were used for hunting out in the open where our keen eyesight was invaluable.
The M. O. T. H. told the rest of the family - when they came back from shopping - that he wished he had seen what happened and he wondered if I'd snatched it out of the air like I do when they throw me my toy pheasant to catch? Well, that's for me to know and you to keep a closer eye on me in future.
Note from Winnie's family: The pigeon met its end very swiftly. Greyhounds do have a high prey-drive and it's one of the things you do need to watch but the same applies to many dogs with a historic hunting instinct.
