Absolutely Heartbroken

Recommended Posts

I wasn't after any particular work. He had just started to mark earths, go in bushes and i planned to try on the odd fox if i ever had the chance. He was my first ever dog so was happy just being out with him walking the hills and learning from him. He was a Lakeland cross patterdale. I have found a pup i am looking at tonight as i cant stick going home to an empty house and i need a positive focus. Arry off here is a top bloke, called me thismorning and had a chat with me which was lifting. If he ever invites you down take him uo he's a proper gentleman with a wealth of experience.

He was such a cracker. I feel like just packing the whole thing in. I am completely new to the dog game and it was lovely seeing im grow and come along. I've hunted since i was a kid but i just feel like after having him die in my arms how could i kill something now. House was empty thismorning when woke up, not a sound. He was from a good line from a man in wales and i dont know where to even go from here, which is the way forward.

Sad to loose a pup by accident like that.

 

Not sure after a pup dying by accident after getting hit by a car why you would question how you could kill something now? Pests need controlling and the countryside needs to be managed. The alternative is snaring, poison, trying to catch with not more than 2 hounds or shooting? Controlling with terriers to me is the most humane control technique.

 

Terriers and terrierwork can be a tough game without accidents. If it's for you get another but take your time and go after the best of breeding you can possibly get and watch out for spoofers as wasting nearly 2 years on a dog not work would break my heart even more.

Real shame mate, hopefully by the law of averages that will be your last loss for a fair old while.

As someone said to me many, many years ago, if your gonna have livestock, sooner or later your gonna have dead stock.

Chin up mate and atvb with your next one.

 

Cheers, D.

I think regarding the not killing anything it was just me being upset having had him die in my arms and just the feeling of jacking it all in. Arry reminded me of what a good life i had give him and that this should be my focus, and not to givr up on it all as that's the lifestyle that we all thrive on. This is a first for me and at 28 probably the worst experience I've ever had directly to me. Thanks for all your input blokes, the next one will be as spoilt as Ozzy was that's one thing i know for sure.
