North Shields Dog Walker Blog
Elwood is our dog, he's a Lurcher and he has lived with us for about 6 years now. We 'rescued' him from a Cat and Dog Shelter somewhere near Durham after seeing a picture of him online. I am always reticent about using the term 'rescued' because it's not like I saved him from drowning or pulled him from a burning building but that's just me being a pedant I guess.
He is a very good looking dog although he was quite thin when we first brought him home as he'd been living out of bins on the mean streets of Durham for some time. He's well and truly part of the family now, but he is an occasional black sheep. You must never, and I stress never leave him access to the kitchen when you're not around. We have got better over the years but periodically someone slips up and he'll have been in opening a cupboard or two, helping himself to whatever is at hand. The highlights of his career have been a cooked ham (he is tall so can reach the bench), a full block of cheddar and a bag of flour.
He's about 11 years old now and like all Lurchers he is lazy around the house and loves lying around having a nap. He's still (mostly) keen to go out for a walk but we don't let him run anymore because of his age. We normally go dog walking in Tynemouth and North Shields so if you see us say hello, we definitey don't bite!
