Not All Up For It.

Recommended Posts

Got a call of a man lastnight telling me about his young terrier.. a well bred wee dog of a well established line... back at start of august i was out shooting over rape seed for a farmer on my own... anyway after hours of shooting i noticed the pigeons veering off to bottom of field to my left so decided to shift hide net down bottom of field and shoot a few more..on way down a fox comes out of rapeseed in front of me heading to a wee line of trees in front beside burrows i know..so i dropped the gear and fired 2 shots at it with only thing i had..no7s..missed it and it went to ground.

So straight on fone to this fella who was telling me about a dog he had so i rung him.. bring terrier and stuff just fired at a fox missed it and watched it go to ground..explained where and he said he wouldnt be long.. so that tree line is where i sat and shot 5 more pigeons while waiting.. then i see him coming down the drills... terrier entered and on.. 1.2m... sweet give 15 mins to make sure they settled and fox wasnt going to bolt... opened up and dog is working fox but ive seen it manys a times even with terriers that i myself had in the past which never made the grade in the end up..he kept looking up.. anyway fox was accounted for i didnt mention what i had seen but he didnt notice... dog was left until sept 17 he was used as a fox was encountered on some of his own permission.

Dog came off and an older dog had to account for the fox by bolting it to a gun. Sunday they were asked to check cover for a farmer and a fox made it to ground just as hounds found.. so dog was tried spoke and came off...again the waited silent to see if fox would bolt.. fox never showed so after 20 mins went to transport got a 16 month old pup first time and had to him at 0.7 and fox was accounted for...the other dog was reared correctly and entered correctly.. 36 months with only 14 hand picked burrows for youngsters.. so dog is now living with his sister as pet.. the season has just started and phesants are open in NI.. so plenty of shooters walking ditches making them not lie out so much so we shall see what the season brings...

Well in for your days out and that. But that dog starting off like that sounds poor and not worth bothering with as a worker (you know yourself). You'd most definitely say the something ain't right in that breeding lol

Been working my black dog for a while now. Coming up to 6 year old not let me down. Dropped him in a stiff place last week. 2 hours of digging and he moves. Half an hour later he is out. Gutted isnt the word.

You fella are a first class clown.. i did not write this to slag off a line of dogs.. i wrote it because its what it is not all well bred entered correctly stuff are wired correctly ...thats it its nature.. a true man who loves his terriers is gutted when a terrier of any line decides its not up to a working kennell..

They thrive on their terriers being happy.

Folk like you and a few others seem to have no work for terriers or yourself and love drama fs.

That's Your Opinion and it's amusing. I only said that because what sprung to mind is good dogs that I truly know off , Don't have that fault, and the ones that don't make it don't make it because of this. But I have heard about what you said happened with guys dogs and the was never good enough. The told me that themselves and they had high hopes for them

A line without failures doesn't exist. Any man that says they exist should be pointed and laughed at.

True. But you'd wonder the way that it did or other dogs ?. Or if one ever started to do it to ground. But something that sounds like it hasn't got it in that way to work won't get better and it make you think ,
