  1. That sort will always own lurchers,they are a small minority,even that minority is to many to some of us,perfectly acceptable to their ilk.
  2. I don,t know why they ever lost their fashion as they were once so common and reliable.Shows and ribbons perhaps?.
  3. I know where you are coming from but i must reiterate the fact that decent owners don,t ditch dogs and whomever owns the land would not encourage them to do so.Some folk would sacrifice an awful lot for their charges,the shallow lurcher owning shite about would,nt sacrifice their lack of dignity.
  4. I just encourage the wife and mother in law to get out and ignore it.
  5. Im not tight im just careful,ive still a couple of ten bob notes and a shilling in the dark expanse of my nervous wallet and deep pockets.
  6. Ive owned a couple of retired Greyhounds with the intention of entering them in the field and producing a litter of lurchers out of them,they were slow to learn yet eventually learnt not as much as i wanted,work them hard and they fall over as they lack wind.They are keen and eager,they just don,t have the grey matter.Work them lightly as you desire and they will be OK,breed from them,if they come in season?,then they will produce something far better,which to be honest is not hard to achieve.As a baseline for lurcher production can be useful,especially if you are patient enough to breed from 2nd generation stock.As its your time,energy and desire id give it a chance.
  7. Lurchers are lost for all sorts of reasons and better owners than me have been unfortunate enough to lose a much valued,non monetary,mutt through circumstance.They strive with every endeavour to get the dog back and often do.The shitehawks that ditch them are another matter.
  8. Do the slog,walk with a few hunts,attend the odd,and they can be fecking odd,FMWTC meet.Do your homework and introduce yerself to a few miserable terrier owners etc. The trouble is now folk want instant results,brass to spare and no fecking notion how to spend it and no ambition.Thus if you want something right you will work towards that goal and not trawl the web to be mugged by a shitehawk dog breeder.At times you need to wear the boots and not the wallet out.
  9. Not sure,i visited my Daughter in November,she lives in Pagewood now,the son in law pointed out a red back behind the drain pipe at the front of the house.
  10. Do you base that on seasoned experience or what you have seen written on here?.
