Greyhounds

A pair of cast reconstituted stone reclining greyhounds wearing bronze collars embossed with the initial 'P' for Plantaganet and 'T' for Tudor separately.

"I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips, straining upon the start. The game's afoot. Following your spirit, and upon the charge cry 'God for Harry, England and Saint George." (Henry V III i: 31)

The Greyhound has never escaped mention in the annals of history, its' reputation in the field is as old as civilisation itself. As one of the three founding dog breeds the Greyhound is widely celebrated as an unrivalled Dog of the Chase; ceremonially honoured in the tomb engravings of the ancient Pharoahs, recorded in medieval Forest Laws as early as King Canute and featured in the works of great rulers and authors.

The Greyhound shares the timeless renown of Kings and noblemen and in recent times, has become the hero of the race-track for his fine athleticism and spirit. His beauty of form, speed and docility of nature has been the inaugural signature to man's enjoyment of Field Sports throughout the ages.
