Lurcher talons.

Us lurchers don't have claws.

We have TALONS. I'm not really sure why this is, but besides being the slinkiest black lurcher you will ever meet, I also have the longest tail and talons ever seen on a dog.

I mean - can you MATCH these?

Last year the V.E.T. decided to cut them while I was alseep. Even V.E.T.s don't understand about lurcher talons. One of mine bled for a whole day. Owie.

Lurcher No.2 says he might well be able to not only match those but beat them too! Which he will prove if he can a) sit still long enough for a photograph to be taken and b) not stick his snozzle in the camera lens and steam it up!

hee hee hee Lurchers (and whippets) are meant to have talons - they are the doggie version of running spikes !! Kuki has some good ones too albeit they are not as big as the lurchers !!!

Pippa - you are tagged -again - if this is not clear enough

Mommy cuts my nails and they sometimes bleed. I keep telling her to leave this job to a professional but she laughs maniacally and keeps cutting.

Should I be scared?

You have big talons!

n.mom and th mom decided that it was too much work to cut my nails (actually they dremel them), so they pay someone to do it.

I love uncle mike, he gives me kisses and they call it a pawdicure so it sounds more like a spa thingie. It is not, just like oatmeal is not a welcome home ernest meal.

I'm definitely not showing that photo to the girls next door. They'd be right over with the nail polish
