    Foxing hunting in Ireland

    Haha you clown . The farmers are usually nothing but gents with me and I’ve an as English accent as it gets. Thankfully the majority have moved on and don’t use the past to be bitter with folk. It’s harder to get permission in England that’s for sure.

    Foxing hunting in Ireland

    It’s legal in Ireland just like it’s legal in the U.K., but you can help out any landowner not just game bird estates, a bit more freedom with less restrictions. I’d say it’s more common place in England though.

    Terrier clubs

    Regardless of if he knows someone or not, what will he gain in telling you, other than lads trying to fish for even more info to post for all to see?

    Terrier clubs

    I was referring to your last sentence in your previous post, back pedal all you want, you wrote what you wrote, which says a lot about yourself. The op asked for lads opinions and I’m sharing my opinion which is that the average lad has enough help from friends and lads they know up and down the country on good sites like these, without the need to join a club and if they want to attract the modern terrierman something else needs to be used to encourage subscription.what That something else is, I don’t know. Like I said just my opinion and it’s no bad reflection on the good work the club does.

    So what your saying is if your not in the club you deserve to lose a dog? That’s very immature of you to come out with a statement like that and I’m sure a club like the fmwtc wouldn’t share such a narrow minded, bitter view especially when they carry a terriers life and wellbeing at the upmost importance. You must keep bad company if you’re of the opinion that the standard of modern terrierwork is lesser. I’ve been around nothing but honest and genuine lads, young and old, who would help out in any situation regardless of a club membership or not.

    i don’t really know of the benefits of joining the fmwtc that justifies having your name on a list. It’s just my honest opinion but what is there to gain from it other than the occasional social meeting?

    All the working dogs I was brought up around where brought up around the family and were soft lazy and very submissive at home. But they all worked hard in the field and did their job well. The way a dog behaves is no baring on how it will work, it either has the drive to go to ground and work it’s quarry, or it doesn’t.

    Bloody horses

    It’s not the dog being broke to the horse I’d be worried about, it’s the horse getting at the dog. Your better picking a dog up near horses if possible. They’ll charge at and stomp at your dog as they see them a threat.

    Southern Ireland

    It’s not a bother but when you get stopped, the dog was purchased in the north, or they have the right to quarantine.

    Don’t think I’ve seen a dog as similar as the bitch my old man kept. They all came out with white chests and ginger beards, all hard and silent. 13 in this pic.

    The Irish, border, lakey, beddy. They all probably decent from some cross bred type used in both the north and Ireland and they changed over time when people bred for purpose or show. I wouldn’t say no dog originated from one place, just like the patterdale, as there is always more than one person breeding a type at the same time. But your right, Whitehaven was a big port at one time and it would have been a place where plenty travelled through bringing and taking dogs with them.
