release the hounds

Notes from the Pack - bulletins from the dog world. Toby Dixon's incredible greyhound portraits

I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,  
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:  
Follow your spirit; and upon this charge  
Cry "God for Harry! England and Saint George!  

- William Shakespeare

gold rush dogs

'And in an era consumed with greed,     
they were sometimes the only ones a lonely gold seeker could trust.     
They were packhorse, transit system, security guard, and pal rolled into one.     
They were truly worth their weight in gold.'

'For he was a most independent dog and took to himself        
an air of partnership rather than subjection…        
Not every dog is fit to be a partner with a man;        
nor every man, I think,        
fit to be a partner with a dog.'
