    New Arrivals.

    That’s the type my mate loves if you remember when I pmd you when he wanted another dog.his old dog did everything he wanted and would of shocked a lot of people on this site John.what you are doing is a credit to you and you know what you want.but it says something when a man takes a dog like yours on a shoot day and it embarrasses most of the top gundogs and the keeper says you can bring that dog any day atb with them mate

    I’ve said that for years to mate a lot of people who’ve never had one listen to idiots about them not working until they are 3yrs old,what a load of bollocks.like you have said treat them like you would any other breed and they will come on just the same as any other.mine have good noses and are from a decent lines and the dog I’m going to put over my bitch is a good digging dog to.

    And they say kc borders don’t graft,the conumdrum side has never grafted in there lives as she only shows them.the owner is Jane Parker.but like I’ve said for years the kc ones still graft like the non kc ones if you get the right dog.

    Why would somebody go out and pay a grand plus for a coursing pup that might not make the grade,but twist at the price for a well bred border terrier pup.if the breeding is right and you like and want a good pup pay the money and be happy with it.let everybody else twist about the price you payed simple as I’ve had borders for 30yrs and I used to do a lot of digging with them but my back is knackered now but I still choose the right dog to go over the right bitch,as I like to keep the type and not one of them little head snippy nosed things people call borders.

    greyhound whippet

    The only fault with them is they are to quick everything is 100mph with them,like said be ideal to work the nets with your other dogs.tell ya mate he needs to learn about dogs before saying that kind of crap.

    Rabbit decline

    I do every time I go out wether gun,dogs or ferrets,been doing it for years now,I enjoy just been out wondering my days have gone coming back with 60s plus then sitting there gutting and skinning,2 or 3 does me now one of my perms I’ve left for 2 seasons now as I left enough to have a few flights when I had the hawks to and I know it’s safe land as there is only me with perm on it.its good for pheasants during the season as it’s between 2 shoots and the farmer won’t even let them on.theres lads still go out in breeding season which doesn’t help as it’s called that for a reason but they know better till the season starts, then they are twisting cos it’s crap so it’s not just mixi hitting them .i wouldn’t that you for another lurcher now as it wouldn’t do it justice

    If it didn’t carry it back at that age it would be in a hole
