"It's A Dog's Life"
What does it mean?
Well it has two meanings
It can mean a miserable unhappy existence
or, as in the case of our dogs, a wonderful life.
Take a look at what life is like for Buster and Rufus.
This wasn't staged, it's Rufus, he just plonks himself down regardless of what's there.
He wasn't sniffing the tulips! it's just the way he was laying
I can't remember how piglet came to be in the garden,
but Rufus is always quick to spot a comfortable place to rest his head!
They get long walks, sleep all day, Rufus loves playing with his toys and we get a lovely welcome home when we have been out, even if it's only for a couple of hours. They are lovely well behaved boys.
A Lurcher is not a breed of dog but is a type of hound that results from cross breeding a Greyhound with a breed of Terrier. They are unique to Britain and Ireland and have been around a very long time. They are thought to originate from the time when only Noblemen were permitted to own pure bred Sighthounds such as the Greyhound, Saluki, Deerhound, Whippet and Wolfhound. The punishment for a Commoner for possessing one of these types of hounds was death. So the Lurcher was bred to fulfill the need for the Commoners and Poachers to own a fast and efficient hunting companion.
If you do get a dog, please go to a reputable breeder and make sure you see the mum and dad. And don't reject the idea of a rescue dog. Rufus is a rescue and he is a darling.
