We have rented a doggy friendly cottage near to Ely so that our beautiful grey can have a holiday and run free in their 8 acre secure field. So this morning I experienced 34 kilos running towards me at upwards of 40mph, and the amazing thing was that at the last moment she veered off to the left to miss me!!

Jaysus, Mrs Steve doesn't weigh much more than that... was it running down a very steep slippery hill?

She's a good-sized dog! Has she adjusted to home life and having her own people?

My dogs race toward me and veer to run into me or jump up! That's how my knee got messed up a couple of years ago, when the Lab ran into me full-tilt through a narrow doorway.

Beware of running dog/standing human collisions. I have a 65 pound (30 kilo) mixed breed who is prone to running around in tornado-like circles of ecstatic doggie bliss. When doing so, she tends to pay more attention to the joy of being a dog than where she's going.

A few years back, while under such a spell, she rammed head-first into my left leg. The impact broke my left ankle and the fall broke my left wrist. Both breaks had to be surgically repaired. Six weeks wearing a brace for the wrist. Six weeks in a hard cast and six more in an orthopedic boot for the ankle.

Nowadays, when my dog has crazy running fits, I don't assume she's going to veer off at the last second, but begin firmly commanding her to "STOP!" before she gets near me. Or, if there's a tree in close proximity, I get behind it.

Why do you always remember the stuff that is best left forgotten?

My knee has been through several uncomfortable treatments and is about to go back for the next set of gel shots. When I started to tell the knee and hip guy about the injury - "My chocolate lab came charging through the door and hit me square in the knee" he responded "say no more! I have two labs." He's living dangerously.

BWL, It's a testament to your big heart in not holding your injuries and recuperation against the happy pooch. Same here with Zeke - accidents happen and we learn to watch out for the dog direction of travel that sometimes illustrate too well the Newton's law of motion, where the acceleration of a smaller solid body colliding with a larger human body results in the transfer of energy and your sudden acceleration to the ground.

Bonzo, glad things are still going well with your rescue dog.

While we've had dogs doing "loopy runs", I don't remember a collision but we never had one quite that big.

all sounds proper - and beautiful - longdog behaviour, bonzo. while ours is great at leaning when stationary she is also safe at veering round me wthile zooming. last weekend at shrewsbury folk festival i was lying around in the heat, listening to birds of chicago and eddie reader with snoozing greyhounds, our lurcher Rosa and a big retriever pup nearby. very lovely. apart from the occasional accident - yes, my knee too with a previous labrador cross - dogs are just totally superior to us ridiculous, over-complicated and self-obsessed humans.

no, no response to the music from Rosa or other dogs - it was all laid-back stuff though, maybe she wouldn't be so happy with anything too loud or high -pitched.

Again, I am grateful for our increasingly sedentary cats -- despite their habit of lounging in the dark at the top of the stairs.

They are black.

Just back from afternoon session in the secure field. Now this field is called "Pond Field" for good reason - and it was discovered by our greyhound before I could distract with a treat! Fortunately there is a hose on site with options for hot & cold water so I was able to remove the worst of the mud - rather smelly mud unfortunately, and she has already started to lick off the rest!!!

What is her demeanor when you head out to that field? Do you walk her on a leash and then let her go - does she start off running right away? Tell us more about these trips to the field.

As the field is connected to the cottage garden where we are staying, she is off leash until her time is up - that's 30 minutes in the morning slot and 45 minutes in the afternoon slot, although she's so far had enough after 30 minutes in the afternoon. I was expecting her to run off straightaway but she seems more far more interested in smells. This afternoon I saw a rabbit in the distance which she missed, I think because she was attracted to the pond. Hopefully tomorrow she won't give an encore!!

The cottage owners would be well used to greyhound antics as they owned one recently. 2 large doggy towels are supplied here for cleaning!

Visited Ely for the final time before we go home tomorrow, and what a pleasant place it is - free parking, friendly people, cathedral and river - all new experiences for our greyhound!

Not looking forward to homeward journey tomorrow, although Dartford crossing is prepaid, may use Blackwall Tunnel to avoid Friday getaway at Dartford.

My buddy's lab nearly knocked me out once. I was bending down to pet him as he was jumping up to greet me causing my jaw to experience impact with the top of his head. I had to grab a nearby table and hold on till the room quit spinning. You could chop meat on the top of a lab's head.

My chocolate lab lived his first three years with another family, and they apparently taught him that a kiss has to be on the lips. Try as I might, when I bend over to greet him for a kiss, when I turn my face and offer my cheek, he maneuvers around and gets me right on the lips. Every. Single. Time.

" lounging in the dark at the top of the stairs."

Charmion, put some light at the top of the stairs before you too, have a tale of breaks, surgery and casts.

Plug in a night light. No receptacle? Buy a battery-powered light. Run a string of white Christmas lights from a receptacle around the corner. Or go whole hog and have an electrician install a receptacle.   

In other words, take control of your environment.

I have a string of LED xmas lights around the lip of the step from the halls into the den. It's a single step but a real shock if you miss it - or stub a toe on the way out of the room.

Every time I have the electrician in I have a laundry list of things that need attention, and I always feel like I've pampered myself when I go ahead and have the work done. This summer the electricians where here to put a light fixture back into a restored room (ceiling collapse) and put the smoke alarm back in order; after that, we worked on the outdoor plug in back and my non-functioning bathroom plugs (in the old days any rooms with wet areas were wired through one ground fault breaker in the circuit breaker box - and that breaker was failing.) I have GFI plugs in those rooms now, so it seemed redundant, but that's the way it is.

Company here for dinner last night, one disabled friend (very short, brittle bones) and another with allergies, so the dogs spent most of the evening in the yard. One friend went out and threw the bumpers and they love it when he comes to visit. At the end of the evening I let them in and of course they approached the two people who were the reasons I put them outside to begin with. The lab was very gentle in greeting my disabled friend, and the blue heeler didn't jump on the allergic one, so I guess they were on their best behavior.

Boat bumpers, to keep them from damage when they're next to a dock. It's what the dog toy looks like. Dog and bumper from Instagram.

I get it. Thanks. (Nice dog.)

For people who have dogs with behavior problems: have you ever watched videos of Victoria Stilwell, the dog trainer, on YouTube? I enjoy seeing her techniques.

Some people might think it's cute, but I consider jumping on people a behavior problem.

I started watching Cesar Millan (The Dog Whisperer) when my pitbull first arrived and people were trying to scare me out of keeping her. He specialized in "dangerous breeds," and while it became clear very quickly that this pitbull was gregarious and harmless and very very smart, it still made sense to be pack leader and one way was to walk them regularly and another was to be in charge of the food.

I have a great memory of our basset hound running all out, jowls and ears flying, while his friend the Afghan hound ran in circles around him, also running full-tilt across the field. Sun and planet game.
