    I really hope you get it, like you say you on training for good 12 months or so, you never know if interviewed well, you good get it. I went for a job years back, as gas board engineer, like your job it was training on the job, this was in the 80s. I selled me self well, showed massive intreast, and had the crack with them, prob that tipped the scales for me. Was good job, but load digging trenches, had dig from the main pipe in the road, to the houses. Them days no little minny diggers, it was all pick/shovel, done it for 18 months, then my back went had 2 slipped discs, but idid get bette

    Anybody know what killed him,?
  7. Just out of intreast mate, where are big numbers of rabbits in Oz? I thought I watched a vid in Oz, not so long back, where they totally over run with run the feckers the ground just moved with rabbits, not sure if it was new south Wales, might be wrong. If lived in Oz, and had could get to place like that, I spend 3-days there, plenty of dog food, and work for ferrets, and deff lamping for the lurchers
  8. spot on, my last 2 dogs, both were catching rabbits easy in the lamp at 6 month old , bryn lived till he was 14 yar old, and catching rabbits 10 years old,Buck the same and being honest even though he was big heavy dog, he pick rabbits up easy. Both made it look easy, trigger on here would tell you same as me as seen both dogs work, Buck lost bit of pace now, but i knew he would as big dogs slow down and age quicker than smaller dogs he 10 year old this august. i think it comes down to how you enter them, when young, No silly long slips, walk up to the rabbits at 1st , let them catch few, ge
  9. yeh , that deff helps with couple small meals a day, and let them have plenty of time to digest each meal. when i worked at the racing kennels, we all ways kept a eye on the amount the greyhounds were eating, we had 50 dogs to look after , never heard of greyhounds getting it, but suppose most dogs with a tuck up stomach , might be mote prone to get it. ive never had it with any lurchers ive had ,Buck wolf his grub down quite quick, but slowed up since old bryn been dead. R I P Freddie .
  10. was they drug related keith ? i know that some people use hard drugs , to cope with there lives, the only prob is that drugs make there probs thousands time worse , had mate who life got out of control , he hung him self in the end, real shame when life gets to much. i was in very dark place for 2 months with bad sciatica , got up in morning in bad pain , went to bed in pain , no feckin escape from it, for 8 weeks, i really felt like toping my self , i thought at least i get rest from this fookin thing, but i fought it, and didnt give in to it. i still get bad days but what ever
  11. dont know about knighted , the the twat needs poisoning like they did to the Russians'
  12. i thought BARF was raw meat anyway ? i get my raw mince chicken in 1lb bags from T .I .P .S they deliver to my door, but got to be o £ 50 quid meat, or they wont come, i have 100 bags , and some times big raw beef bones as well 20 were10 quid, but carnt get any since this feckin virus thing, i am by Hereford . but as said Buck on 1 lb raw chicken plus cup full dry meal 22 % protein , so he doing ok i think .
  13. just reading about this make off food, it more or less what you sprinkle on top of your dinner, it supposed to have nutrients in it , that other foods lack. my self i feed 1lb raw mince chicken , oil fish, rabbit when i get any, and 1 1/2 cup dry meal a day, so only small amount of biscuit . iive fed this for years , old bryn made 14 , and worked up to 11, Buck 9 now , ageing now, but ok for big dog. i just wondered if these type food brands are s good as what they say, it was a vet by the way in the vid, who said how good this stuff was, maybe he getting back hander from it all l

    Ed Sheeran

    i think if he fights Uysk next year Fury will win the 4 belts, and they deff have chance of winning s p o t year , people will vote for him , even if they dont like big gypo . i watched the dancing program , and was glad the deaf girl won , more so that i have only 30% of my earing, so i not deaf but i do struggle with earing deff. Ok Rose is deaf, and it prob gained her more votes than other dancers, i think if the black girl A J had have been in she would have come very close to win it , but Rose danced great , so she won on that as well. Regards the gay bloke john and his gay part

    Ed Sheeran

    Yeh he is talented, not really a fan, but last couple of songs have been quite good. I see Fury got no where in the s p o the year show again, he never turns up. Lol
  16. Nice pup, how it bred, how much pit in it?
  17. good old Henry, a honest down to earth bloke . he was never really a true heavyweight , think he fought at most 13st 9lb , more light heavy/ crusier weight , by today weights , when he fought Ali , think Ali came in 15st , bigger/stronger , pity he had soft skin round his eyes like above. ive been reading Fury next 4 fights for 2022 , but not Oleksandr Usyk , why dont Fury fight Usyk for the 4 belts , say xmas time next year , he really the only one to beat, Usyk will beat Aj next year , Fury beat white , so they may as well get it sorted , and be the one champion , and i think it be Fu

    RIP jethro

    shame that, was naturally funny man, was very funny with Jim Davidson , mind you i did struggle at times to catch what he said art times , mind you he prob say the same about me with wolves accent lol RIP Jethro .
  19. well, 1st i get in good recall, before all this of the lead stuff, meaning any pup will get its head down with all new scents thay are about. forget about it for a while keep the dog on its lead, just keep doing recall, say 4 times, then have nice lead walk rest of the time out with the pup. what people do and me in the past, is put the young dog in to situations that you know the dog will fail , theres plenty of time to get it hunting , the next thing people say the young dog fecks off when its caught a rabbit, well it will do unless the recall 100% , so get this right 1st , like above then
  20. and well bred none ped racing whippet will be spot on paul for him. ive said many time on here about them , i had 20 in 20 lb little bitch , catch rabbits , and give a hars few turns as well, but some of the males down the track were about 21-23 in 30-34 lb real full on type dogs, a lad had 2 brothers that he used on foxes , tough/ strong litt le dogs, i deff ask around where they still race them, this was in the black country cannock south staffs in the 80s
