    My original point had nowt whatsoever to do with pushing dogs to breaking point, that just got thrown in, as the usual response to these kind of things. Joe initially stated that life gets in the way of working dogs, and thats true. My observation was that very few folk manage to get 'the most' out of their dog or see what it really is or isn't capable of, simply because life gets in the way. Working a running dog and taking it on that journey to really give it as much as it can handle (without wrecking it), requires a lot of time, effort and dedication, a drop of luck and probably quite big balls! I know I dont get the most from mine and I work pretty hard at it. No one wants to run their dogs into the ground, but following on from the fit dogs thread, most good lurchers at peak fitness can handle more than the man on the slip most of the time! I dont really care how much anyone else does or how good or bad their dogs are as long as they are happy. . . . . however it is interesting to see that what is often talked about as a 'great' dog is just one thats not crap. See its ALL of the time with collies.

    Yeah I get what your saying mate but I think it's not just down to life that fact of the matter is there people out there who are just happy to go out now and again and just do abit of this and that with there dogs I think the b s starts when people make out they do more with there dogs then they actually do get my drift end of the day really dogs only got to prove it's self to 1 person 👊

    I said ‘get the most out of a dog’ not push it to breaking, let’s be honest how many folk on here have pushed a dog so far it’s broken? When it’s not just been a dog that’s lacking. 

    Trouble is every dog has a breaking point weither it's age ,Injury or just literally chucking the towel in it is what it is now when I had all the time in the world to get out with my dogs and I meant literally all the time in the world there wasn't a single day or night where I wasn't out I was a hungry young lad and so were the lads I knocked about with we had lurchers and terrier that we were out with when ever the chance came about but some times I'l admit that we may be had more about us then the dogs did at time I've literally ran the legs off them the poor fuckers have I learnt from that yes I sure have but sometimes we do think that they are machines I'm as guilty as the next man but now I think as long as the dogs doing the job your happy with then fair play

    Try it,Arthur Chester an old timer from Keighley swore by it,he chewed the leaf all his life and knew more about lurchers,especially Beddy lurchers than most,he cured a limping terrier for me by throwing into the river,it had a dislocated shoulder and the cold water and swimming popped the shoulder back and it swam out without a limp,i did not know about the dislocated shoulder before him,he did.I remember the time he stated a lurcher I owned wanted worming,id wormed it with the regular shite available at the time,he told me to hold it and spat brown chewing spittle down its throat and then told me to hold its head tight as the mutt would try to vomit,it did and within a few minutes shat a bung of worms out.A while later I wanted to worm a lurcher and sourced some chewing baccy,i sat on an hillside chewing away and spat a slug of treacle down the mutts throat,then I watched the world spin round and spent the next two hours allucinating and retching my guts up,it was like the worst hangover quadrupled.Now I use the cheap drontals or novermectin,the mutts are wormed and i don,t suffer.

    The question is did the tabbacco clear the worms out of you or was you chewing iawoska and you wanted to visit the dmt world 

  5. I've hesitated breeding from half decent notches in the past and I've lost out big time all I can say is any lads with a decent dog or bitch doing what it should be doing for you don't hesitate to breed it weither it's 2 5 or feckin 10 even if yah just rear a couple off them I wish I did like I said 👍
