    Took dear old Dusty for her last walk today... I was gifted this good-hearted pup, from a guy that in reality, I hardly knew. I traveled from my home in Hampshire to a Welsh Valley and collected her... She was a super friendly pup and fitted into our lifestyle, no problem. She served me well, for nine long years, we had some good times, caught vanloads of game and enjoyed plenty of laughs,... I am sad to say goodbye ... Alas, the Big C has no mercy and seems to enjoy inflicting horrendous pain. I feel privileged to deny this heartless monster it's perverse enjoyment,...mercifully, she did not have to endure the torment of a bad death. As an enthusiast, I am in this game, for life,..so life must go on... RIP Dusty,...thanks for the memories.

    Out yesterday for a couple of hours with a mate to stretch the hounds legs, hounds got a very good hound, didn’t miss a beat. Put the fox to ground, mate said the famous words, it’s a handy spot, so I went for my pup. Soon as I brought him to the earth he was going mad to get of his lead, second I let him of he was gone, give him 10 mins no sign, mate put his ear to the mouth of the hole and could hear him clamped to the fox, I started to locate, heart went in my mouth when I seen 9ft on the box! Phoned a mate for backup! Straight out to us, pup did not let a mute out! Over the moon!!

    Tonight I was unfortunate to witness a bad crash .although no one seriously hurt , I also was a certain mother’s hero , as the car had overturned badly and a child was stuck in his seat in the back , the poor mother was frantic , I didn’t think twice and was in the back upside down getting this little fella out of his seat , he clung to me like there was no tommorow , I was glad to have helped and as soon as police n ambulance arrived I was sent on my way after giving my details , nice walk with dogs after that to reflect , you just don’t know what’s round the corner,

    The chicken sheds have been very quiet recently with very little rat activity due to the change of pest controller who knows his job (b*****d lol).Got the call last minute as usual and turned up with 4 terriers . Like the old days really with rats breaking out as the shed was moving and terriers doing their thing . Finished with 168 with about 20 killed under the shed as it cleared the muck and not in the pic . Hopefully some immunity has been built up . Brings our running tally to 19,775 since starting in 2008

    Having not been on the forum since dinosaurs last walked the earth i thought I'd drop by & shout hello ☺ ..hope everyone is doing ok,the running dogs are all healthy & prepared for their winter campaigns,fingers crossed you all have enough game on the ground to keep your dog's active over the forthcoming months..I've still got Boots who will be 6 years old in a fortnight but he unfortunately suffered a horrendous injury which seen him unable to put his leg on the ground for 9 months which put a damper on last season but he's looking grand just now,I'm pretty certain he will breakdown again this season which will result in his retirement coming earlier than I would of hoped though,we have recently had a day in the mountains & he covered over 20 miles that day according to his tracking collar & thankfully he returned home on all 4 legs so fingers crossed we can get a few more trips out together before I have to hang up his leash, Fenn is fast approaching her 7th birthday,Don who will be 10 in March & Ruby the Pom is still going as strong as ever even though she seen her 12th birthday back in July,but sadly my young coursing bred dog Mario died after becoming unwell earlier this year which left me devastated but when it comes to working dogs rarely do things run smoothly..dogs & myself all getting older but pretty much just as things were since my last visit,best of luck to you all for the season ahead..Atb Andy
