    We headed towards Glastonbury,...it was wet and muddy as per usual, the rain was non-stop and the wind was icy cold. No exciting bands on offer, no sex, drugs or rock, and roll, just the promise of a new life for my old pal's lurcher dog. Lost my dear friend Robin Tarrant to Cancer at Xmas,..it was emotional. I visited him in the Hospice, it was a shock to the system and one which I was not prepared for,..however, it had to be done... Foolishly, and without really thinking, I asked him, 'Is there anything that you want me to do?" The cancer was in his throat, he could not speak, so our conversation was limited. He motioned towards a notepad, and proceeded to try and write a few words,..this was difficult and painful to watch, as the Morphine kicked in, causing him to slip into unconsciousness. No matter,... I'm no academic, but I can make out the word dog,... I knew what he meant.. So glad that I saw him,..he died that night... Anyway,..what to do with Tigger ...? At the time he was ensconced in a commercial kennel,..it was eating up cash and the relatives were at a loss as to how to end this predicament,..there only seemed one way out. A decade ago,.. I would have sorted the situation in double quick time, but age has wearied me of killing, plus, I had made a promise... Hence the journey to Somerset... We do not have a victory yet, but the wheels are now in motion,..he will only go to a home that is a forever home,.no dizzy life on the lurcher merry go round, for Tigger... Admittedly, still early days, and a few more weeks of trauma for the poor confused critter, but I am hopeful...

    An eventful week for the lads this week at #Invermark... Patterdale Terrier, Charlie, disappeared down a hole at work, during fox control and luckily had his tracking collar on so was easy to locate. 7 #Gamekeepers over 3 days, a total of 72 hours and under 12.5ft of solid rock reunited Charlie with his owner this afternoon at 4pm. A massive thank you to R K Services in Montrose for kindly loaning a rock breaker to help with the epic rescue mission, that was almost called to an end this morning. The breaker got them through the final 3ft of rock, where the lads thought they had come to the end, however after breaking through the last piece they could see Charlie was alive. Charlie is doing remarkably well and is delighted to be home and enjoyed his owners Bel's Steak Pie for his tea! Well deserved we think! Well done #TeamInvermark

    He’s at home now safe and sound! me and a few good lads off here made are way up the fell first thing this morning, after many miles of searching, we were making are way to check a section of woodland when one of the lads took a quad back down to my house. My missus was there ready to leave, someone had called to say they had him at the local pet shop, so off she went, 20 mins later he’s back home curled up in the sofa where he belongs. He was found 5 or 6 miles away from where I last saw him. Other than a little scratch on his toe and putting in a cold night he’s fine 👍

    First for the young bitch this morning, first thing she has ever seen. she hasn’t even run a rabbit in her life yet so this was her first kill of any kind. seeing as that’s what I got her for I’m happy enough with that.

    Got a day for the big dog planned this week so been bushing the last couple off days with the 2 rogues. Took to some waste land after the school run. Nice little bit off hail stones to remind me why I enjoy being out so much🙈. We chased a couple off bunnies then onto some thick brambles, put a fox out and after a wee chase it made its way away pushed on alitttle An they where on off again this time from what I could see they pushed a roe but vetted off that onto another fox they had a good old chase at this took the fox alittle bit to shake off the busher she’s fast for her size. I moved on moving the odd rabbit around the busher was chasing one as the old dog dropped in an old drain littered with rabbit droppings . He will ferret and Mark but has never entered to a rabbit even as a pup. After some moving around I heard a few yaps An then he was on, I only had a small spade today in the odd even this would happen but 2.5 hrs later only to hit one feck off Boulder was not on the cards!!! He moved on the box alittle An was trying to pull managed to free them An the fox took off only for a rogue busher to catch it in cover🙈, eventually I got to let the fox make its escape this time off year I won’t chap any unless really needed

    You've answered all your own questions, do whateveryou think best. The old dog would be my first choice, if you've only got one crack of the whip then I'd be using the young dog because unless the old dog is used at stud regularly he might not be fertile. If times on your side have him tested, that way you can be as certain as you can be that he'll produce the goods. If you've only got one chance and can't test the dog than I'd be using the young dog because his fertility should be better. As for breeding out of an untried bitch, who cares, as long as it's from a family of producer's then the odds are 100% in your favour. No one knows the outcome, I've used the best to the best and still bred shit. I've had a litter bred one way and produced shit, only for the same mating to happen again and all of the litter flew ! It's a duck shoot, all you can do is stack the odds in your favour. .........don'tlisten to anyone else but your own instincts

    Yes it’s only 1 but it was a memerable catch ,for the most part retired dog , it was like going back in time when 180 deg flips landing backwards in the hedge were standard for the old lad , still can’t believe he caught it 👍 a heart in the mouth landing but he stood up and was one happy lad , and me I was made up for him
