The thing is

it’s all very well being taken in and fed kippers and toast, but I do have to live with Little Lord Fauntelroy, and moreover Why Don’t They Let Me Run?

Lemon goes up to Fakenham for his final x-ray tomorrow; the way he performed when he slipped his choke lead yesterday and put in a couple of (mercifully short) practice loops on a football field (before, to my surprise, responding to a fierce shout of LEMON! WAIT YOU LITTLE ANGEL! as if he actually understood these words) I’m guessing the doc will sign him off…

    He’s a beautiful dog. I wish him well at his visit to the vet tomorrow. I cannot imagine life without a lurcher….or any dog for that matter. But the runners seem to also possess such “interesting” personalities around the house, don’t they?

    Here’s a pic of Drzl with my husband….seems she’s adopted him as another lurcher. Perhaps we should look into getting a “friend” for her. Here’s an example of them “boxing.”

    Great picture, Patty. Another contender is exactly what your household needs for the ‘even more fun’ factor ;–)

    Hope all are well.

    Best wishes, S

    Great picture, Patty. As a boxing enthusiast, I reckon Dave should tuck his left hand into his chin or Drzl will find his weak spot 😉

    Winger, you should rename him ‘Sick Note’. 🙂


    Why don’t I believe you?

    Hi Stephen and Trezza, Dylan and Lemon – we have been following lemon’s exploits of course, and none of this seems suprising to us – WHY ??

    Hope the doc signs him off, but I think Lemon feels he doesn’t need doc’s approval – we still think of Lemon a lot and his picture with “the harness” is on our noticeboard for all to see – love keith and sue x

    Hi Keith and Sue,
    Well, you won’t be surprised at all to hear that not only did I have to prise a balled-up burger wrapper out of his mouth this evening, but I’ve had to retrieve a fat slug from his jaws just now. And as for the chewing gum . . . never in my life have I seen a dog chew gum (and really enjoy it too ) – until yesterday, when he swiped a lump off the pavement. I’ll leave the flies for another day (Lemon wouldn’t). He’s the quickest and funniest dog I’ve ever known, he goes right to the heart.

    I am not suprised at all – but what i am wondering is the old joke about chewing gum and walking at the same time – and does this apply to Lemon ??????

    I think lemon is so so cute.

    Is he just a foster or are you keeping him?

    I foster dogs too, and I have a hard time letting go of them!
