  1. As it went, they didn't check but we didn't fancy the risk as there was protests and trouble in the port at the original time the pups were to travel.
  2. It's a bit trickier now as the rabies needs doing 3 weeks in advance of travelling and if you're caught without the correct paperwork they can destroy the pups. The EEC put a border between uk and Northern Ireland just 2 days before our pups were due to travel.
  3. It wasn't too bad in fairness. The DEFRA vet charged about 300 I think to do two pups, vaccines, health certs etc. It was in a very rural area and I think country vets tend to be more sensible. Pups are here now anyway and are no worse for the big delay.
  4. Just been through all this. The most ironic thing about that is they needed a rabies jab too, to travel between two countries, neither of which has rabies.
  5. RIP honey, I remember reading about when you got her. Glad she had a good life.
  6. A malinois police or army dog can be called off quarry. Might not leave go that very second but will come off, no break sticks or a bit. If it's hanging off of you you ouldn't doubt it's commitment LOL. If it mistakenly starts to chase an innocent civilian, maybe even a child, it MUST be able to be called off. Most people don't bother or aren't able to train a dog to that level but that doesn't mean it can't be done. Just saying like.
  7. Scratch racers are bigger and need no start to win races against smaller whippets.
  8. I wonder how much trouble it would be to transfer the volume pot from that to the back of a lamp handle and wire it in???? If the size wasn't too far out it shouldn't be too difficult surely.
  9. I knew someone would ask that and must confess I never saw it run.
  10. I've seen one bred that way and it was one of the ugliest dogs I've ever seen. Imagine a big misshapen deerhound with long droopy ears. Having said that I imagine good linebred fen type coursing blood might work out well. Hitch a ride on the back of decades of selection and line breeding.
  11. AFAIK pedigree australian shepherds are often bred merle to merle too. Maybe the inheritance of genetic problems is bred out to some extent by heavy culling. Probably not....
  12. The two that aren't blind should be checked for deafness. If one or both are deaf their training could be adjusted accordingly.
  13. Car does it too if you put a bag of shopping on the passenger seat without a seatbelt.
  14. Instead of definately, both here and at the other place.
  15. And it never gets any easier either but it's important to know when it's time. when it's time then it's the right thing to do. RIP Fly.
  16. Why indeed......everyones got their own opinions and people want to follow their own ideas.
  17. In my opinion Jigsaw has it right. When I moved into this village, 30 years ago no one else had a decent lamp so one or two people used to borrow my "blue eye" lamp and lamping became a local craze for a short time. The son of a neighboring farmer used to run his dads greyhounds but it wasn't long before one of them ran into a cast concrete cattle trough ?. I stopped lending the lamp as it always came back in need of mending. Think the lads used to have a few jars before going. If you're going to lamp fast or rough ground (and that covers most ground), be very careful.?
  18. found this. TRACER SPORT LIGHT - HANDHELD - 210mm VARIABLE POWER | DEBEN TR 2100 WWW.SPORTINGSUPPLIES.CO.UK 800M BEAM Probably out of date or out of stock but still online.
  19. He's looking well Alex. Has he recovered all his mobility?
  20. Well done Vicki. Keeping the flag flying for legal lurcher work until we're all forced to become criminals.
