    Here is Christie, she's 11 yrs old a lurcher thats cat friendly and stands 25" at the shoulder.

    He owner, a friends uncle, was found dead last week. He has owned her from a pup.

    I told my friend whos looking after her at the moment that I would post her on here to see if anyone knows of a loving home for her

    to live out her twilight years.

    She looks so sad........... :(

    Anyone intrested please email me,

    Hi,

    I'm the lady Christie is 'lodging' with, thought I'd register and add some updates.

    I've spoken to her vet now - turns out she may not be speyed after all :oops: - she had a 'pre pyo' but it seems to have been cleared by anti-biotics.

    Apart from some recurring urinary infections, her health seems excellent. She was scanned earlier this year for this, and no major issues were found, so just a case of anti-biotics.

    Her vaccinations are up-to-date, and she is currently insured - so hopefully this will be transferrable to a new owner.

    Hi Lydia,

    Not dazed, just me trying to take photos from too near :D

    She's a greyhound, collie, bedlington mixture, I believe, although I do have this info from when we bought her as a pup, it's not to hand at the moment.

    She's doing fine here, eating like a horse and very playful. We took her to Ascot Racecourse last night, and what a turn of speed on her, she doesn't know she's 11 years old.

    She really is a sweetheart :wub:

    :D Hi everybody, just an update on Christie.

    She's still awaiting that right retirement home to come along.

    She is an angel o:) Marina found out her paper work and it turns out shes ten coming up 11. here are the details......

    1/8 Bedlington

    1/8 Whippet

    1/8 Saluki

    3/8 Greyhound

    1/4 Collie

    Bred by Rob Wootton in Staines, if that rings any bells, looks like a hunting/coursing man from letterhead.

    I'm sure if we all ask around we can find this lovely old lady a nice home. :wub:

    Would you like me to crosspost to the Greyhound and Lurcher site? They get a fair bit of traffic. :)

    :D Great news folks, Christie has gone to a new home tonight.

    She will be living with a Lurcher mad lady called Lynda, assorted family and three other Lurchers. Fingers crossed that they all fall in :wub:

    Many thanks for the help of this board and other Lurcher loving boards, let's hope this is the start of Christie's happy retirement.
