Some pictures at the weekend of Tilly and her two sisters, Roobarb and Bellatrix at the West Country game fair, where we had a little litter reunion!

We were photographing the hounds together when all of a sudden some 'gentlemen of the countryside' appeared out of nowhere.
it was really odd, they stood there looking very stern, quizzed me on if they had bedlington in them, how old the dogs were and were they good at rabbiting etc. and i replied that they were old dogs, not sure of the breed, a bit of a mix and they were quite slow.
" do you want to sell any of them, guv? " he replied.
What a surprise, I didn't see that coming,,..much. mmm " No thanks."

Hello Alan,
Just had a heads up from Kath about your blog, having just had a Lurcher squeeze her way into our lives here in sunny N.Wales. I'll tag along awhile if you don't mind.
Regards,
John

Hi Al, Kath sent me too!

We have an elderly lurcher cross (she's 14 and a half but when she's out running she thinks she's still a puppy!), and she looks rather similar to Tilly (I love her full name!).

Reading this post, we have experienced similar interest from 'certain types', and have been aware we had to keep a close eye on her when she's out with us for a run.
