Today’s dog is owned by ‘A modern Renaissance Man’ or so it says on Dave Arthur’s blog page.
Dave has lead a rich and varied life through music, storytelling and writing. I first met Dave years back as I went to school with one of his sons and he’s always been a fascinating bloke to talk to. I’ll leave you to click through to his website as Dave tells it much better than I ever could.
So, back to the dog – this time it’s Dusty, Dave’s Lurcher. Obviously, lurchers are quick and ideally suited for racing and hunting. Dusty is also a great jumper and will clear fences and stiles so you’ve got to be careful.
She’s also a tree climber. Since taking these pics, I’ve talked to another lurcher-owner to see if this is a common trait but no, not wth this other one.
The pics at the end have got to be a couple of my favourites since I started this blog. Maybe it’s the setting with the trees in the background but for me, there’s just an air of mystery about them.
