  4. I grew up hunting through the 70s,80s,90s,im still hunting but my way,the lads I dug with,kept good terriers and running dogs,and bred from the workers,gifted pups to those close so the blood lines were there if needed,as young lads we all had someone to look to if we needed help as such,I don’t dig any more,but I don’t condone those that do,good luck I say,I’m afraid my patience has gone,I can’t sit and listen to bullshitters,and we’ve always had one somewhere,I’m not impressed by someone showing up with a dog smashed up,I’m not looking at the past through rose tinted glasses,I am honoured and proud of the village elders that helped me on my way through my life of hunting,good luck to all out there,and as for books,well I’m sure we all like to read about it,as for some of the authors,good stories,and that’s all,be happy,be lucky,keep the faith,DD,
  5. Don’t really see anyone these days,tend to hunt on my own,most of my old mates have gone or given up,I’m glad to hear that there’s good uns out there,maybe just not for me,I no longer move in those circles,but I’m happy for those that do,as for getting more,well that’s another story,my family think I should stay in more,not going to happen,keep the faith,DD
  6. I think with the hunting act coming in,a lot of good lads gave up,no real dog boys coming on,and if they were it were kept quiet,gone are the days when you could say to a few boys we are going for a dig meet you Saturday,i don’t think the quality of working terrier exist like it used to,old boys would meet at a show,not to win a ribbon but to catch up with others,see what pups were about,talk about how young dogs were getting on,the net has a lot to answer for,as old boys I’d look forward to going to a certain show,just to see folks I hadn’t seen all year,yes time has changed.
