    Bloody hell-there's a blast from the past!! Aubry fryer. I suddenly feel old!! You'll probibly be surprised to know,that mick douglas also bred one of the best dogs that ever crossed the irish sea.He was a very strong rough coated dog,and belonged to a gamekeeper friend of mine.He was a squarish big dog.Rough coated,and a smokey deerhoundy color.There was nothing this boy didnt take.But he would also tryto retrieve the odd yew,when the addrenalin was up.I bred the 1st ever litter,from him.To a stocky greyhound bitch.There was 4 pups,in the litter.2 rough,and 2 smooth.They were absolute machines.I kept back the 2 smoothes,and parted with the other rough dog.After my mate took his pick from the litter.Had tp get rid of the dog i kept,as he was mental,and had an evil eye about him,when the wife or kids were around.He went way down southern Ireland,and was a bit of a legend,on the hard stuff.My bitch,was summit else.As she could kill a fox,in a few seconds,and would retrieve a rabbit,live to hand.A few minutes later.Mr Reynard,was eventualy her downfall,when she killed his mate,one night.We then called him into the field.But he was smarter than the lot of us,and after she missed her 1st strike.He took her straight down the field,at full pelt,and at the last minute.Just as she made her strike.He swung to the right,and she went full pelt.Into a massive rock,in the ditch.The only bloody one there was.In the whole ditch.The blood was coming from her ears,eyes,and mouth.We rushed her to the vets.But she was f d,and was PTS.Since then.Theres been quite a few realy good honest dogs bred from this boy.(Though he's gone now.)But he only produced the propper goods.To pure greyhounds.One of them being a fawn bitch.28 inches tts,and weighing 80lb.She killed her 1st b/w.Single handed,at 10 months of age.I made contact with a girl on K9.That claimed,Mick did not breed the line he was selling pups from.But inherrited the line.From her father.Apparently.He didnt even own a pair of shoes at one time,and regularly came about their place.Bare footed.After walking the mile or so lane.That one had to walk.To get to where he lived.As that was the only way in,or out.She could be genuine enough.As that was exactly what my mate had to do.When he bought the pup from him.He had no shoes on his feet,that day,either.

    I agree with you mate.That its not about bone,but whats behind the rib cage.Ive a 3/4 whippet,1/4 bull bitch here.She aint got much in the way of bone,and stands about 22 inches TTS.But bot has she got heart,and she aint had a good winter yet.Unfortunately,my 24 inch 50lb whippetxgreyhound,jumped 2 6ft kennels,and made his way in to her shed.The results were these. Now these got bone.But i hope there's heart in there too.Or they'll be a waste of space.They are 5 bweeks old,in these pix.The dam is 22,and the sire 24.I recon at least 2 of these pups.Possibly 3.Will do 25+TTS,and weigh in exess of 55lb. Thats not a bad accidental mating though,how old they now fella?atb JB Just 6n1/2 weeks mate,and a hell of a lot stronger.Cant understand how so much bull came through.When they are only an 1/8.The rest is like,1/2 whippet,and 3/4 greyhound.Only one.The wee bitch.Looks like the whippet part,and the wee blue fawn,with the blue eyes,is as solid as the they come,but smaller than the reast of the dogs.I have a 3/4 litter of whippetxgreyhound pups here.Who are 10 weeks old,and they are not near as heavy as a few of these.If i had homes for the bullx now.Id be a lot happier.As its almost time somebody else was feedin them lol.

    PRICE OF BEFF

    i pay 55p a kilo for tripe that is cooked minced and frozen. get bones with plenty meat on them for free. Dont agree with cookin tripe mate.It needs fed raw.As cookin,or boiling,only destroys everthing thats good about it.

    whippet sized greyhounds

    I had a wee bitch once,that was 50lb in weight.But useless.On the other hand.One of the best bitches to ever run Derry track.Was a 46lber.Not so long ago.There was a 51lb bitch,who did 28.08,for a 500.

    Getting your dogs started on the treadmill..

    I found that they always pulled to the outside,to try n get off the thing.So i boxed in both sides,and the difference it made was amazing.I used to have a 3 dog treadmill.All i had to do,was open the kennel,and the 1st three dogs used to run onto the thing,and took up their places,like cows in a milkin parlour.They were harder to get off it though,as they loved it.Took months to achieve this though.So have patience,and never ever shout at,or scold them.If they try to get off te thing.As that will realy upset the apple cart,and make them hate it,from the word go.I have a 1 inch,square steel bar,across the front of mine,and thats what the short lead n collar are attached to.

    my new whippet...

    Just wondering what jabs the pup is getting.If he's havin his last one,at 8 weeks.Cant get them done with the 1st jab now,till they are 8 weeks,and some vets wont touch them till they are 10 weeks.I used to do mine for Parvo,at 6 weeks,and then start the full course at 8 weeks.Now i cant get the 6 week jabs.So just start the full course at 8,with the 2nd jab at 12 weeks.Its the new 7n1 course.

    Pitbull Greyhounds

    ill be honest iam no fan of these bull x dogs but i cant knock what ive not had ive seen 1 or 2 work on rabbits but never to much good are they just pure fox dogs or can they account for good bags i meant just bull x greyhound who buys a bull x for rabbiting i asked a simple question timmy plenty people buy bull x for rabbiting or is this a hear we go again snide remarks an all that I seen some good rabbiters with whippet in them.I have a big dog who catch well but he would fall on stamina compared to say a collie cross.Genrally speaking Bulls are up for anything and so make the best alrounders. I have a wee bitch here,who is whippetxbull,whippetxgreyhound.Sh's as game as they come,with a great strike.Have a litter from her here.Who are from a whippetxgreyhound dog.Some of the pups,although only an 1/8 of the bull in them.Have thrown to the bull,and are massive,with good heads.With the speed of the sire,going into what is already a fast bitch.These should make great all rounders.A couple of them that im keeping,should make 25/26 inches.This is not an advert for my pups,by the way.Just replying to the post,about them making good rabbiters,with a bit of whippet in them.People underestimate the fire in whippetx.They can deal with a lot more than mere rabbits.Im keeping this big feller.He's 5 weeks old in this photo,and believe me.He's even bigger,and stronger now.

    MALAMUTEXGREY PUPS

    i have answerd this in another thread ,i dont know if the x makes them different or they just climertise ,because of being born her ,or that we only run them hard at night ,your guess is as good as mine ,but they most defenetly dont get any trouble from over heating ,that also goes for the mother ,she lamps as well . OK.Have read right through this topic,and am i sick,that my nephew has just gave away,(for nothing)his 15 month old Malamute bitch.These are great looking dogs.I have wondered for quite a while.What the x would look like.Never mind work like.Ive no experience of this x.But i'll tell you one thing.If they have the guts of the Malamute.Then they will be hard as nails.Reason nephew had to part with his bitch.Was that she was giving cattle a hard time,and was gona get him in serious trouble.She pulled down a full grown bullock one day.When she broke her lead.She stands about 28 inches high,and weighs about 129lb,at the moment.Too heavy,i know.But she's a beast of a bitch.She has gone to a bloke,who races them on some sort of harnesed buggy,with wheels.He does all the local forrest tracks round here.She had no knowledge of what fear is,and could run all bloody day long.Without a break.Ive worked a husky x,and i can vouch for their gameness,and stamina.Wont say on here,what he was very keen on.But he was a very hard dog,who didnt know what defeat was.No where near the size and weight,of the malamute x,and only stood 25 TTS,and was about 60lb.

    BULLXWHIPPET,,WHIPPETXGREYHOUND PUPS

    Heres a few.He's my daughters dog. This is him,on his way to victory,in the racing final.Not another dog,within 6/7 lengths of him.Up a 300 yrd hill. This is another one of him,beating his kennel mate.Who is almost level with him.The all Ireland Straight racing champion,is the dog wearing the number 3 jacket.This was Danny's 2nd ever race,as he was only a 14 month old pup realy. This is him with Kennel mate,and their proud owners
