    the cia started the crack epidemic in 80s selling the f****r in the ghetto ruining there own country the uk and usa are the biggest drug dealers in the world 

    That’s been heavily investigated and no evidence found. 

    You’ve been watching too many YouTube conspiracy videos lad. 

    They noted that rebels they were working with were also involved in supply of some drugs. That don’t mean the CIA personally smuggled drugs.

    It's something I have never heard of I also thought heroine had gone out of fashion these days amongst the younger generations. I believe the authorities could put a stop to it if they put the resources in to it. 


    Delusional or naive? 

    The amount of things coming into the country, lorries, cars, containers, flights, drug dealing probably one of the biggest industries in the world. 

    Huge drug just just the other week so many tons of coke and they prob just write it off as an operating cost.

    From my experience there would be very little heat being felt from that height, if it’s cold enough for it to be needed to be on it should be around 2 to 2 and a half feet above the bed, even at that height you don’t feel much heat if you hold  your hand under it at the same level as the dog would be but if you turn your head to the side and put your face by where the dog would be and leave it there for a few seconds you can feel the heat more, I find that the best way to gauge what height to put the lamp

    It’s just arrived and I put it in the kennel; even when on the 250w setting I didn’t think there was much heat being given off. 

  4. Not looking for other recommendations eg saying get a tube heater etc, just want a lamp for switching on briefly when the dogs get back from work and they are wet etc, give them a blast to dry off and warm up before bedding down. 

    Does it make a difference which lamp you get? 

    Does the bulb matter? 

    These ones on sale are cheap, I was thinking just buy the shade and get a ceramic bulb separate as I am sure I read ceramic bulbs are better? Maybe that the glass bulbs can shatter but the ceramic ones don’t? 

    Also if you get a 250w shade and 250w bulb, with the reduced switch, assume it would just be like using a 125w bulb when switched onto the half setting (sounds obvious don’t it but just checking). 


    This looks like a decent buy but if it’s just going to be cheap crap I’d rather buy a better one -

  5. I’m flat out over Xmas working in the emergency social work team… however for the first time in years I’ve got Xmas day off. 

    Home with the Mrs, will take the dogs up the common early morning to give them a good run out, might chase a hare like they did last year :D, … I shouldn’t laugh they’re bloody spaniels… then back home to cook a goose and all the veg. 

    One of our mates was due to go back to Ireland but her plans collapsed last minute so we’re dragging her over to our house as we won’t have her spend Xmas home alone.

    Great bit of advice. My sprocker bitch is going to be 2 this month and she’s been out twice. What a difference in her, compared to letting them at it a year sooner. Just worked on the training last season instead of letting her going shooting. I have her mother so it was no big deal holding her back, maybe different if you don’t have another gun dog. 
    All she wants to do is please me now, purely hunting for me and not herself. 

    I see loads of people bringing young dogs on shoots. 

    They say it’s nonsense to wait and how the dog is brilliant, or they bring it along and just keep it on a lead etc …

    I go back a year or two later, the dogs pretty much always have major faults and they either don’t bring the dog anymore cos it’s totally wild, or even worse they still bring the dog and they think it’s brilliant, when in reality it’s out of control and totally shit.

  7. Just a word of advice, take it or leave it.


    More dogs are ruined by doing too much too soon, than waiting for them to mature a bit. 


    It's nice to get your dog out but at 9 months working on a shoot, it's the perfect melting pot for problems to come up and be learned for life.

    I shot over my young spaniel too young, and have lived with the concequences ever since.

    I still managed to make him into a trial winner but would of been a lot easier if I didn't have to correct the faults / bad habits that were learned when rushing in too soon. 


    I am glad to see your dog is coming on so well mate :) keep it up and you'll have a good one for life.

  8. Im waiting to move house as want to get more dogs for trialling and working. 

    I’ve spent ages looking at loads of different options but think there’s big pro’s and cons between different setups.


    I’d avoid wood totally now, and myself I am leaning heavily to the KM engineering setups, as if you ever do move you can take them down and move them with you. 

    It’s a lot of money for a block / brick building and all the time I hear of lads splitting up with the Mrs or anything.

    I went against my beliefs and got a half x, she has done 9 seasons now without so much as a knock, she will be 10 this Xmas, iv gone down the kelpie route now, I’m made up with her so far, this being her first full season 4435347C-EA7B-4E9E-8124-9E17FD5D437C.jpeg.cff9743329562e4855d02dafe3c3b379.jpeg

  10. Just spent 11 weeks travelling the USA. 

    Loved NYC, make sure you get to Ground Zero early as they shut around 5 and will literally Chuck you out, there’s quite a lot to see inside. 

    We saw 2 broadway shows which was good experience. 

    The Empire State, Statue of Liberty etc all worth a look but absolutely rammed full of people, to the point they were a bit off putting. 

    A very intense place but the energy is electric.

    id only have pit x working neo theres some in the states few and far between i had a nice pit x neo back in the 80s very handy dog and a right looker to not like the shit neos that are mostly around now very tight


    One of the gundog lads had a family nearby who come for lessons, not farmers but had a small holding, few out buildingd and a shed with some collectable cars and a few gundogs. 

    They got a Neo thinking it would protect the land, cars, kennels etc. 


    Said one day, for what they saw was no reason at all, it just grabbed their toddler and started ragging her about like a terrier does to a rat. 

    Luckily it was winter and she was wearing a thick puffed up coat. She got thrown out of the coat and the dad rushed her off to hospital as despite the coat it had broken her collar bone. 


    My mate reckons once ok in the Hospital, he left the child there with his Mrs, drove home, and stuck a bullet in that dog. He reckons the Police turned up next day saying they needed to seize the dog, but he told em no bother, as he'd already dispatched it and showed them. 



    I'd never have one of them big powerful things, not sure you could trust em and once they switch its serious life changing damage or death. 


    99% of people don't need a dog that will bite, and they are a liability waiting to happen. Especially so in todays world of lawsuits and compensation. 

    Your better off with good locks, a good alarm system and if you really need one a smaller dog that will bark, kick up lots of noise and if it does bite the injuries aren't going to land you in prison.
