  1. Trouble, over sized, over hyped,over rated, trouble
  2. Coursing mad are your borders earth dogs or just for mouching about at rats and such,genuine question, also what percentage of working stock would you have from a litter, working as in digging dogs. They look like workers compared to some of the stuff you see nowadays paraded around rings.we had a couple down the years, 1 was bought as a pup, turned out a really good little bitch, unfortunately lost to poison on a shoot, and another was a working dog we also bought, he was a very steady dog to dig to most of the time, he died after a really tough long dig,he pushed to tight and couldn't keep out of harm's way, died the following day. I also seen one that came from a pet home because it had a hatred for cats, it was brought on a Friday and 1st day in the field was Sunday morning and he was dug, and went on to be a really good dog, again unfortunately he climbed out of his pen and into a lurcher and that was him,always liked the look of the borders, great to see people still with them.
  3. Dilly dog do you remember the border dog ye lads took back with you years ago, big lump of a dog.
  4. Horses for courses, I wouldn't enter a digging dog in a place like that because 1st it can't be dug and 2nd I'd end up without a dog, but if I had a dog that would only do say half an hour and then appear back out or if I kept one that could be called out then I wouldn't have a problem with such a place but thankfully we have none like it about me, like I said horses for courses and a lot of foxes can be got with a 10 minute wonder dog,I remember a little Russell a friend had years back that would go in do 10min and out, then it was a case of sitting quiet for a few minutes and almost every time the fox would come out itself to a waiting gun,but just not my type but everyone to their own, as fd said the only problem I'd have is lads selling pups of such dogs and the ad saying out and out digging dogs.
  5. Why on earth should they share what they know. When that book came out and names of dogs were mentioned in it there were peds stuck up on here of all sorts and funny enough some of the dogs in the book were actually long f***ing dead and it was from your side of the world it was coming from. Truth is you or the rest of you American lads haven't a clue as to what digging does and doesn't happen over here. Mosby came over here some years back and he dug with ac and myself on his first day, we had 3 digs,nothing special but 3 digs to 3 different terriers. The next day he was out with different lads and also had 3 digs but he said the work style of the dogs were a world apart from what he had seen first day even though they were also supposed to be heavily influenced by ac blood, not knocking the other lads dogs, they had 3 successful digs, same result but completely different work style, sometimes its not exactly what it says on the tin if you catch my drift.
  6. You don't care because you don't f***ing know ya muppet
  7. 1of1,jambalaya was the one that put my personal details up on thl, I have not once said his name on here,he has also abused me and called me a liar openly on this thread and PMS when all I have done is told him the truth, he claims a certain dog is bred one way and I've told him that's not how the dog was bred but he says I'm lying, he at one stage said I bred the dog, while in fact the dog was never in my yard I never seen the dog.
  8. Do you honestly think I'm going to start naming dogs on here for you lot,rest of the litter were shite full stop.
  9. Truth hurts buddy, but the fact is that the rest of that litter were rubbish, and when did you see dogs from ac yard, you never did so f**k up talking shit about something you know nothing about, the nearest you have to ac dogs is pictures and false pedigrees.
  10. Nothing like proper ac stuff and also all the fuss over this mayhem dog baffles me because the rest of his litter were shite fact.
  11. ABC,him or nobody else is coming next nor f***ing near me, we have our own little circle and that's plenty, also any dogs that went over to the states has absolutely nothing to do with me,I neither sell or buy dogs so whoever's feeding you this shit is filling you with lies and anyone decent dog man this side can vouch for that.
  12. It's a couple of individuals in the party, same as any of the party's ff,fg, lab,the greens all of them have a certain few that want to ban hunting. Few years ago in the Monaghan cavan area another sinn Fein's candidate wanted to ban hunting and because of that they lost a load of votes,can't see them letting that happen again.
  13. Nice write up and also nice pics,I've personally dug 2 otters and bolted 1 in my time with terriers. Last time was when it bolted from an old stone shore that ran to a river,I heatd the splash and seen it swim away. Terrier didn't show and we got a mark on him working away,thinking now it was a 2nd we dug to the dog with a good size dog fox bottled up,both otter and fox happy to reside together
  14. D,when properly bred there not the feeble snipy nosed things you see on here, most are strong terriers, bitchs that look like dogs, built for a job and they live up to their name. On average what size would your own make, weight wise,mine are well up in double figures and there bitchs.
  15. I'd say between the 2 of you, ye wouldn't shovel shite from a cookie clock
  16. What made up ped have you on that, lol looks a nice pup though.
  17. I know what your saying Ziggy but,if a place is all rocks with no soil about I assume it would be hard at times to distinguish whether an other animal is in or not, eg,no kick out, shit pits,no fresh digging for earth worms and so on the entrance might be tight in the rock so naturally there would be traces of hair but otherwise difficult at times I'd imagine, anyway good luck to the lads that work them,I'll stick to me digging.
  18. Just curious as would a different animal take refuge in the rocks, I have absolutely no experience of rocks at all so hence my curiosity. 5..6 piled in together sounds like a disaster, wouldn't like to be the dog up front.
  19. Ps. Have you men that work rocks ever come in contact with a different animal and would the terrier still stay, by accident I mean before the ban.
  20. I can honestly say that I wouldn't put a terrier of my own in a place like that. I will drop them in any diggable earth but that would be a no no.the men and the dogs that work these places have to be commended and I know they probably have worked them a lifetime and it comes 2nd nature to them but they have to be respected.
  21. He works f**k all let alone rocks with his over rated rabbit dogs, I have seen and done earths he has failed on with his mutts so pass no heed of him, he's a chancer
  22. Stopend you are some can of piss,what the f**k do you think the point of it was, I'm sure the lads weren't there 3 f***ing days with a track machine just for the fun of it.
