  1. Believe both @chartpolski and @Francie are sort of right about this treaty. My limited understanding is that the treaty is effectively a statement that all the pointless (from our point of view) bullshit they carried out over the past two years was successful and that they should do the same thing next time. This is wrong because it's obvious to anyone who cares to look, and is backed up by the UK government data, that lockdowns and mass testing are pointless from the perspective of stopping the progress of this type of illness. The recent pfizer document releases appear to be showing that the
  2. Only known a couple of beardie x's and they were definitely more laid back than their more intense border cousins, but the beardies were more prone to unlikely or unexpected behaviours. I love a full on runner, but in my part of the UK the non stop building and ever increasing numbers of civilians wandering the fields is making it even more difficult for the saluki x to do her thing in peace. Will be looking for a type more inclined to work in close next time, probably herder or gundog cross but wouldn't want to be without some runner in the mix. Hope the fast dogs can keep on going in r
  3. Exactly. They're all the same and stories like this are 'be angry at the bad man over there' political team sports media distractions that people still get drawn into whilst not noticing they're getting stitched up or robbed by the predator class in some other way. I'm still amazed so few people can see the real question about this Partygate story. The earliest No. 10 parties took place in May 2020 at a time when much of the economy had been forced to close, people were stopped from visiting dying relatives, media were endlessly screaming out covid daily death tolls, police were stopping
  4. Oliver Stone film "Ukraine on Fire" covers recent and longer term history of the region which helps understand what is going on there today. The film was made in 2016, six years before the Russian invasion. Stone was best known for films such as "Scarface", "Platoon" and "Natural Born Killers". For balance, it is worth reading his wikipedia page, which states that he has long been critical of US foreign policy and is known for promoting 'conspiracy theories': https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_Stone The film isn't available on youtube because of it's political nature, but for the m
  5. Charcoal dog biscuits from the pet superstore stopped my old collie x from eating his own as a puppy.
  6. Thanks gents Found a dab of vaseline to soften along the healing line where new skin meets old seems to help. Guessing the hard old skin digging into the damaged area was causing discomfort and the dog is moving more relaxed and freely now, so hopefully on the mend now. Bitch was unfit post season condition and also got a light-ish case of RMS, which could have ended a lot worse. Don't think she'll ever be the same again but putting weight back on and playing with the others so things are looking up. Bloody lurchers, always an accident waiting to happen!
  7. 6 year old saluki greyhound bitch, managed to skin the pads on her rear feet (for a change) about a month ago. The right has healed up fine, but the left is taking forever and she can only manage a short walk or gallop before going light on that foot and the dog is sensitive to touch on the pad, as if there's a thorn in it. I suspect the outer skin hasn't knitted back together quite right and is causing discomfort. I find skinned pads are normally about healed at three weeks. No obvious busted toes or joint swelling, but I'll get her x-rayed if it doesn't resolve soon. Any recommendations
  8. Until 2020 I couldn't get my head around the not voting and just disengage from it all, but I do now and will most likely never vote in general elections again. To put a positive spin on it, now that it's clear that 'they' don't work for us and there's not much we can do about what goes on at the top, it's time in the UK to disengage from Westminster politics and concentrate on engaging with the people and things around us. Build our own networks outside theirs, live to our culture and values and become ungovernable from the top. Look on the web - there's people all over the world that just wa
  9. I enjoyed Penny Taylor's "Tales from the field: Lurchers and Terriers" although it was a bit of a downer when she lost several dogs in the field in quick succession. Also liked Darcy's "Down the Beam" with it's stories of the daftness that happens lamping and honesty about how crap some dogs were. The photo with the dog that is being a wanker about surrendering it's rabbit to it's handler made me laugh, know that feeling well Another +1 for Phil Lloyd's "A Moucher's Tale" and "A Moucher Forever" (will @OldPhil leave the world the uncensored version for posthumous publication in his last will
  10. +1 I'm a big fan of boneman / chiropractic type treatment and don't want to sound like I'm slagging them off, but for things like possible torn or detached tendons 100% get an x ray. Mine got a similar looking injury couple of years ago and the greyhound vet didn't have an appointment for a week or so and I took her to a boneman beforehand to get some idea of what I was dealing with. The boneman is a good one and has helped cure some nasty collision injuries in the past and he wouldn't take my money this time, saying it was bad news. I set off to the specialist vet a few days later expecting t
  11. Don't think we see the numbers other parts of the country do, but here in the middle of the English midlands there's been a noticeable increase in munties and a few more roe over past few years. Rabbit numbers also looking promising this year.
  12. I thought the vitamin supplements were probably snake oil but decided to give the D3 a go after hearing so much about it's role in giving covid patients a quicker recovery. It's really improved my skin, teeth, hair and joints and I have a lot more energy than before. Also dropped about 2 1/2 stone without really trying, nearly back to what I weighed as a teenager My understanding is that D3 on it's own can cause calcification of the arteries and you have to get the tablets with D3 + K2, the K2 stops the arteries getting blocked. From a web search, it sounds like it might actually have been th
  13. Sounds like you're headed the right way if working on recall and stock breaking. If possible also break to ferrets because that's probably the best way to get the dog working with you. Have to get the stock breaking solid because being a saluki he will end up chasing something into the next county and if not trustworthy with sheep and far away from his handler....
  14. Glad to hear the dog is on the mend Something I've been meaning to ask on here, has anyone else had trouble with getting a decent fitting tracker collar on lurchers? I used an old sport dog tek one with the skinny saluki x in my avatar (26" and 20kg, so very light even for that type) and even after making extra holes in the collar it bounced around so much when galloping it appeared to be causing bleeding in the oesophagus. Are the boxes on the newer collars much smaller?
  15. Always been a few hares around here, rabbits sadly ever decreasing especially with more and more pasture getting ploughed. Muntjacs also increasing and getting ever stupidier, mate saw one sauntering past the garden gate toward the centre of the village the other day
