    Can't understand anyone crabbing man,dog or book....nowhere does he assume expert status or imply the dog was a world beater.It was nothing more than the tale of a man and his dog.Never saw the dog run or met the man ,but that's irrelevant...it is what it is...a book...to be read and enjoyed as such.Dont get why a man/dog gets pulled down ,can only assume it's jealousy....no matter what he put the miles ,time and graft into both dog and book and should be congratulated on it.By the way I'm not one of JDs superfans,I own several of his books and I've said before on here ,some of the content put us in a bad light...

    Planned litters?

    That's exactly what he's after Phil...a mouching partner....doesn't need a speed machine or a coursing dog.When I was after a pup a couple of years ago Northernlite put me in touch with him,he gifted me a pup ,wouldn't accept a penny...we keep in touch he's a cracking lad,when he told me he'd lost his bitch last week he said he was after this cross in the future.So I'm trying to help him out atb Dave.
