  1. Hello,

    I was wondering if you could help.

    An old expression of my late mothers has just come back to me and I was wondering if you could help with its meaning.

    The expression referred to someone looking like a ‘stour dug’ which I assume is some kind of dog.

    If you can help please let me know.

    1. stour usually means something has gone off or out of date , so im guessing she ment you looked like a dead dog. you probably been lying on the floor watching tv an she had to step over you lol
