Bertie the Lurcher's Blog.
A random posting of thoughts and images from a Hertfordshire lurcher's point of view.
How interesting, thanks for sharing. I also read that a lurcher who did not bark was highly prized, so as not to give away their owners whereabouts. I must say my older dog and my friends lurchers do not bark hardly at all. The old lurchermen developed the rough coated lurcher, like ours, so they could go into the brambles and not get scratched or cut.Yes Bertie looks very fierce ha haLove from Ellie and Roobarb (one laying in the sun, one eating lunch in bed!).
That is so interesting. It's amazing what we can find out about our dogs, especially now with the internet.
I didn't know the name tumbler either! Well done Kath for educating us all :)
How interesting especially the part about them being outlaws. Maybe thats why they always look furtive and slinky! I have always loved lurchers and its after searching for a dog that looked like mine (Scruffy) after he died that I ended up with Spinoni (very different I know, but still scraggy and scruffy!!)
