This is Tilly, a greyhound/lurcher that I photographed just before the snow came. Love her stripey, coloured coat.
Hopefully, my new website should be up and running soon. The blog will still feature, so the dogs that I photograph out and about will be posted regularly. The idea is to upload all the pics I’ve shot so far in the past 18 months or so since the blog began and you’ll be able to view these by date and they’ll be tagged with the dog’s name. You’ll also be able to order prints and other framed products a lot more easily, straight from the new website without being transferred to another site.
So, bear with me. The site is nearly ready to go and I’m working my way through boring stuff like domain names and ‘pointing nameservers’. You have to be such a geek to get anywhere these days.
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.
