As of yesterday she has been reduced to light jogging interspersed with bouts of hopping.

When on form she is not unlike a dwarf ,very dangerous over short distances.
How fast have you clocked your dog at and how did you do it. Mine only runs really fast racing me on the bike as she refuses to be dropped. Got 27 mph over a couple of hundred meters this morning but I expect there is more if I could pedal faster. She’s an 18 month old vizsla.
My wife’s uncle reckons his boarder collie during her prime could keep up with his quad bike doing 60 kph when herding deer in NZ. Proper working dog doing it every day. Only has cattle now so no need for speed.
Our lurcher is very quick off the mark. He was a rescue dog so we’re not entirely sure what he is other than very deerhoundy. Maybe deerhound x greyhound has been suggested. Nothing much catches him for 100 metres or so. Stopping or changing direction however he is less skilled at.
43mph! That would make it worth 400 grand a year as a greyhound stud dog…
Shame we took his nuts off then. (For weight, aerodynamic and temperament reasons.) When we got him sight unseen we were told he was a crossbreed but it turns out he’s a very classy Sloughi/Saluki desert racer. Needs a good run up to get his top speed and our neighbours’ Italian Greyhounds and Bedlingtons are both much quicker from a standing start. He’s getting old now and a bit creaky so chooses his races carefully. Usually ignores the pointy dogs now and razzes the fat labradors trying to get them to chase him.
