Mongol Tazi

Andrew Campbell of The Regal Viszla just sent this ink drawing of a Mongolian hunter with a tazi-- reinforcing once more that they are most anciently an Asian dog.

The show Globe Trekker is going to have a segment on hunting with "desert greyhounds" tomorrow (Friday) at 8:00 p.m. EST. Desert greyhound is usually a catch-all term for saluki. It could be interesting, especially because the show is about Tunisia and Libya.

Globe Trekker is on PBS. Sorry, I forgot that little detail.

Our (abysmal) local affiliate doesn't have it-- want to watch and report?

For those in West Texas/Southern NM it's on KRWG out of Las Cruces tonight at 8pm. KCOS, of course, does not have it. They do have the Osmonds 50th Anniversary Reunion. Woohoo.

That's the kind of shite Abq puts on!

Well Steve you shouldn't feel to bad. It turns out that the program description was incorrect. No sighthounds at all. The program description on Globe Trekker's website also said that falconry was supposed to be shown. Did anyone see hounds or falcons?

I would love to get in touch with you and your wife again. Thanks.

KRWG's web site schedule SPEAKS LIES! It was not on. At least I didn't miss anything.
