  1. both parents were bred in Ireland but these dogs now in uk and pups on the floor here in uk
  2. having seen my post about the greyhound pup , with all these government movements, restrictions and possible vet movements . what can be done to purchase the pup ie pick up , jabs , microchipping etc , will vets jab and chip or emergencies only ,do they class jabbing essential as for disease purposes ? also will I be able to travel or not (gamble on going ?) breeders will want the pups away asap as a litter every extra week at home will cost them a great deal more ?? any ideas or experience in this matter over the last 2 weeks cheers ,,,gibbo
  3. thanks for all your comments very much appreciated , im deffo going for a pup as I stated ive always loved them and the breeding is good with wind in their lungs , she will be raise as a lurcher in the same way as I always do basics 1st ,stock breaking ,everyday obstacles , entering when seems right ,I never rush them ,it will be lightly worked as theres not a vast amount of game around ,as for breeding from her that ll be years down the line if I see fit , hope your all safe and well stay indoors atb gibbo
  4. before I get slated and say why do it there a load a shit and always injured ,I am in the process of purchasing one for a few reasons , 1/ my parents and grandad had them when we were kids racing and coursing ,mostly racing so ive always fancied one for light work as around here game is limited ,2/ ive had a first cross deerhound /grey and was hoping if I can get her to a reasonable standard and stay fit to breed my own knowing the pups will be from working stock , the pure greyhound will be brought up like I have done with all my dogs ie field craft common sense stuff ie age of training age for entering etc , Im not thick and will not abuse such pup n any way or form regarding working ability and discard if it fails I would just like a few honest comments on facts when rearing such a dog ,,,, ie stock breaking , feet , injuries etc just so I can enjoy it , I wont be hammering her day and night prob once or twice a week if conditions let cheers for your time ,,gibbo ps dam 8 bend open winner sire well bred too sensible comments please as they will be much appreciated ,possible of peeps who have trained and use them from pups ??

  13. my lurcher sometimes rags the hell out of my lab ,the other day I noticed his ear really swollen looking like a balloon,ive drained it with a shringe needle and got it nearly empty(blood) ,then 2 days later it filled again(blood) again I drained it off gave him some loxicom and some antibiotics ,today is working its way up again?????? do I keep draining it or a trip to the vets ,I thought if shes burst a blood vessel in his ear it would of stopped by now or it is something more nasty no swelling around his head etc just his ear cheers gibbo
