Light Duties

Oh dear, I'm on Light Duties according to mum and dad.  No running on the beach, No playing with my friends - just walking along well behaved for a few days.  My back left leg seems to be troubling me, must have pulled something according to these humans!

I am spending a lot of time just resting, sometimes under mum's workspace

and dreaming of when I can get down on the beach again


  1. Oh poor you xx
    When our Mum adopted us she bought a book about lurchers. It said "lurchers are a tough bunch and not prone to many aliments or diseases. They are most likely, if anything, to suffer from "speed injuries" such as sprains and strains, cuts or bruises".

    We have done our best to live up to that over the last 11 years LOL

    get well soon

    love from E and R xx

  2. Oh I'm so sorry William. Get well soon!

  3. Sorry to hear that mate. Hope you feel better soon. Deccy x

  4. You and me William! Doesn't it suck not to be able to run and play? I hope your leg gets better so you can take part in the Olympics. Maybe you can enter the Fart contest. You don't need legs for that, just a lot of hot air and make sure you eat plenty of beans and lentils.

    Hugs, Georgia x

    P.S this might be the first time I've seen you standing up next to a human like that. You're pretty big and really handsome. Do you have a girlfriend?

  5. Lovely to hear from you all, and thanks for the get well wishes.

    Kath: mum says she hopes it's a sprain and strain like your book suggested.
    Georgia: nice idea for a backup Olympic event, but don't tell my humans, I can surprise them.lol. I don't have a particular girlfriend, but there is a collie pup girl who always falls at my feet!..ahh, I'm such a charmer.

    1. I should have checked here first before asking you about the fart event. It looms large in my mind especially after The Typist made me a fresh batch of beans and broccoli today. So you don't have "a particular girlfriend" hmmmm. That sounds like you might be playing the field, William. Oh well. Why am I not surprised? ;)

  6. Take it easy William we need you on team GB for the Blogville Olympics.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Sorry to hear about your leg, William. Its difficult for us dogs to rest so I fully understand your frustrations. You'll soon be on the beach again. Monty Dog. x

  8. Sending you healing hugs William! {{{HUGS}}}
