    Brexit

    Barnier has said no more extensions, so it’s boris deal or no deal on the 31st of October. That might just get some labour mps voting for a deal

    Shooting estates

    Couldn’t get away with that now a days, you beat a 14 year old kid for a bit of poaching you would end up inside on some kind of register.

    What a vending machine lol

    There’s a separate thread where you two can “get it off your chest” . Use that one instead and leave the rest of us perverts to pick our favourite item out of the vending machine .

    Ferret stuck 16ft down

    I hate to be a pessimist but after two days at 16ft if the ferret is still there she is probably dead, not definitely but probably. If she is stuck behind a rabbit at that depth the chances are she has suffocated air is poor anyway at that level and 2 days stuck is a long time. I dug one out at about 6ft after about a 3/4 hour dig and she was barely alive, 10 minutes in fresh air and she was fine but another 15 minutes and I reckon she was gone. I am not naturally negative but this is how I see it, I really hope you get her back though.

    Disease

    Been in England for a while and it has given the humble rabbit a fairly hard time I am afraid. The only solace I can offer is it doesn’t appear to be as devastating as mixi was when it first struck and (I hope I am not cursing it by saying it) but they seem to be developing some kind of immunity and in Australia after approx 10-15 years the virus has become fairly ineffective to the point the government released a new strain to try to keep the rising population under control. You may have a few tough seasons ahead of you though....for a few years after it became epidemic over here certain areas saw dramatic decline in numbers and many areas numbers are still very low indeed. Even hot spots like the dales seem to have seen numbers a lot lower, blokes still catching 30+ but before we’re getting 70+. Just my thoughts on it!

    Shooting estates

    Biggest estate I go on the keeper isn’t a fan of lurchers but after seeing my dogs he lets me take one dog on a one strike basis (as in if he catches the dog chasing his birds or out of control then dogs are banned) and 5 years later I am still allowed to take one dog! Ask him and see what he says...you’ve got nothing to lose and by the sound of it a fair bit to gain. Good luck.

    Whippet breeders

    I personally won’t worry about ped or not just make sure it’s the right dog, mine is quite biggish for a whippet which I wanted but depends what you want out of the breeding. Take your time and find the right stud to compliment your bitch.

    Mum was a non ped and Dad was ped. First whippet I have owned but very pleased with him.

    Whippet breeders

    Don’t know anyone that breeds them but there’s plenty out there, when I got mine (2 years ago) just looked for worker cross worker and found a nice litter bred for owners own use and got a cracking pup. Got as much chance of that as anything I would say.
