look up any word, like donkey punch:
 
1.
An offshoot of the sighthound branch of mans best friend, the dog, Lurchers are generally a mix of Greyhound and Collie but pretty much any type of rangy dog will do. A true Lurcher can often be spotted by his inability to resist stealing your dinner when you answer the phone.
My dog Homer; any canine castmember of period drama; ideal companion to Travellers and Crusty's; chocolate's best and most loyal friend.
