    Saturday saw me and my mate Alec traveling upto our mate Malcolm’s to do a spot of lamping the conditions weren’t favourable has it went still and the ground was very sodden but that’s lamping for you, I was very impressed with Alec’s bitch Luna she ran very well and didn’t miss much, Malcolm,s little bitch ran well to and for her size she does very well, I ran my dog Dan he has a different style of running to the other two dogs but he’s still has effective and he ran well to, we where fortunate to have a lad with us who’s pretty handy with a camera and he took a few pics of the dogs, cheers Rich you’re very talented at taking pics pal, cheers to Alec, Malcolm and Rich, good lads, great company and true gentleman. Regards Collie John.

    Out trying a few spots today and came across 1st pair of the season. Walking down to check the holes and the lurcher bitch was marking already by time we got there. Blocked everything up, terrier away and dug the pair at 2ft. Had plenty of singles so far but this is the 1st pair we've bumped into.

    just had the community outlook team visit me from the hospital, they used to come every day in the beginning but now cos im doing ok they wont be coming until next Tuesday, they are the people concerned about your state of mind, I told em in the beginning that once id done my final bit for Ruthy that's me done, and that was my true thoughts of I suppose an irrational man, having lost my mate of nearly 30 years, then topped by a stroke, but 2 years ago, she was diagnosed with that awful disease which I cannot even bring myself to say, my way of life stopped that awful day. rehomed my dogs n ferrets. and looked after her the best I could. and believe you me I suffered mentally and emotionally, I never turned my back on the poor lady, nor was anything to much trouble for her, she wanted she got, heres 1 instance for you, one night she was in bed downstairs, I brought a double bed down stairs for her, cos I could no longer carry her up, anyway she wanted a glass of water, she spilled the water onto the bed,. and she panicked, don't worry I says, its only water. picks her up, puts her on my chair changed the bedding, and put her back, there you go I says job done, I put so much into looking after Ruth, without thinking, I neglected my own health. and I know that's how come I ended up in a stroke ward, I did my all and more for that lady, but now theres nowt else I can do, so I can at least hold my head high, now then, I promised myself, no way on gods earth will I waken up Christmas morning, to an empty house, and deffo wont be listening to auld langs eyne on my own, why should I when there is a way out, and im only thinking what any man or woman would be thinking in my situation, but now, because of what folk have done for me, doggie mac, and you guys listening to me, and now I have a pup on the way for Christmas.im starting to feel happy again, I can see a future if I pull my finger out, thanks black dog, and thanks to the hunting life for listening to me, 1 wrong word from any 1 of you would have sent me over edge im sure

    Leading on from a thread in the country crafts section. A link was put up of a bird in America selling farrier file knives made for chefs and charging $800 so I decided to ha e a go at knocking one up today to see if I matched hers. Well I think their pretty similar so £620 is the equivalent of $800 ... don’t all rush at once I will take orders hers. mine ......

    im pleased with both the parents, but must admit that collie looks a stonker, and by the looks of the pups, they have his build, and yes I forgot a decent nicely marked jacket on em, what more do I want from life now, ive got a roof over my head, I owe nobody nowt, ive got food in the cupboard. ive got you lot as my friends, but most of all, im slowly getting my health back, its 2 am as I type this, and I honestly feel like a teenager , lol bugger off socks,,,, im still extremely lonely, but if that's all I have to put up with in life now, then so be it cheers lads and another thank you to you blackdog

    I have put this in the ferreting section but thought I would put in here too as some of the lads keep in touch and track Pips progress. Don't post a lot on here anymore and sometimes think it's gone down hill however if it wasn't for this site I wouldn't have had the morning I've had. I have a new team this year, 3new ferrets and a pup who is now 6months old. All off which came through people I have met on or through THL. I was hoping to go out with a mate of mine this morning but missed the boat. Decided I still wanted to get out so me and my little girl took the team out local. Wasn't expecting anything as we have had recent floods round here but wanted to get the ferrets and dog in the field for some practice together. Ferrets had never been entered and dog never worked, obviously with the age. Chucked the gear on our backs and set off walking. Next door neighbours lad asked if he could come so he joined us too. Walked to the end of the lane where there is a few small sets but they are in/around Hawthorne bushes but can get all the way round them, not across a fence line etc so thought it would be easier to work alone (which basically I was). Well the spot is about half a mile from our door and when we got to the first of 3 spots it had obviously been recently dug and back filled so I left it. Walked on to the second spot about another 150yards and it was the same and the third spot 50yards the same. Decided to about turn and was going to try another spot in some woods. As we passed the first spot again the pup was head and shoulders into the bottom of the bush so I decided to try a ferret. If nothing else it would give the ferret a run through some burrows for the first time on a spot I could see all exits. Didn't put any nets down as all the holes were well under the Hawthorne and brambles plus I didn't expect anything with signs it had been recently worked. Kid on either corner and I was sat at the bottom with the pup on her lead when to my surprise a rabbit bolted! I made a mess of getting the slip off the pup so the rabbit was about 25yards away but straight lining towards the second spot. Pip shot off and made the ground sharpish, she took the rabbit on the run just before it got to the second spot. I whistled her and she came straight back almost to hand.  Got the stinker out and came home. I hadnt planned and didn't want to give the pup a run that far so didn't want to keep pushing her, she's too young for that yet. I was over the moon with my team, it was amazing to see her tear off after the rabbit, then to make the ground up, catch it and keep hold when it was squealing and kicking, then to bring it back! Wow, what a feeling.  All possible because of people I have met through here. Thanks THL!

    Strange place on here mind. A thread about cross dressing Yanks or whatever gets 100 posts an hour, and a genuine thread about a day out with the terriers doesn’t get a look in

    I hope today went as well as could be expected. All any of us can hope for when our time’s up is that we were loved. Nothing else matters. And if she knew you loved her to the end, and I’m sure she did, then you did her proud friend. As for anyone thinking you’re attention seeking..., nothing could be further from the truth. There’ll be hundreds, maybe thousands of lads and lasses on here who’s hearts are breaking for your troubles. I’ve read the posts and they’re heartfelt. Many probably haven’t posted because they can’t find the right words. I can’t, but would only urge that you hang in there pal.

    Nothing killed, but what a cracking morning for a walk... Straight out the backdoor and away, dogs are starting to shape up, done a bit of lamping and quick ferreting trips, looking forward to the hedges dying back and getting at it properly!

    if thats your opinion then you stand by it ... i`ve had family and friends suffer with it and i`d like to think me being there for them helped ;; a mate of mines suffered for years with it and i`d never turn my back on him it makes me smile when he smiles makes me laugh when he laughs .. times when i`ve had to go round and coax him out of bed make sure he gets a shower and a shave on the days/weeks he`s let himself go , be a shoulder for him to cry on and give if a hug when he needs it , i speak to him everyday and see him as many times as needs depression or not he`s my mate and always will be ... now if thats what you call some c**t dragging you down then your a million miles away --
