    my own fault ??

    Spot on post duckwing.I see some of the people on here (one of whome has even posted on this thread) who always seem to have about 64 000 dogs! Always got a puppy in. I and i cant help thinking by what they say and pics on here they obviously dont do much hunting mabey a bit at most which is fine by me.Who am i to tell them what to do .But i cant help but think of the waste of these dogs just sitting around waiting for them to stop faffing around taking pretty pictures of them.Certainly not my way.

    I agree gnash mir almost seemed to stand there and wait to get to get hit thinking he was fine.Its the very reason why i think GSP is so good because he knew hed come off worse in the stand up with hardy so .....didnt.He made hardy fight his fight.Mir just stood there didnt force his oppenent to his strengths. I think if mi flys across the ring and take silva down first time and manages to stay there he WILL finish the fight but i think if he stands there for a matter of seconds he will loose end of. On a different note theres a lot of new blood in the uf at the mo thats hear a few dream

    well i be lieing if i wasnt just a little chuffed with the results.Hardy it was a shame did absolutly nothing throughout the whole fight and i mean nothing not one good strick ,dominant position nothing a clinic in takedowns and grappling.Would have liked to have seen that arm bar and kimora finished but it looked like there was no way hardy was going to tap! Well as we both said cupid it would have bee hard to back carwin but did he shock us or what those shot looked hard and i mean hard such hu8ge power then again from the start i think Mir wasnt there i think he spends way to
  9. Malt i apologise i shouldnt have directed that tyrade at you.I agree in part with what your saying. I cannot stand it when half wits say things like this you havent seen much pal have you a good working terrier is gold dust dont comment on something you clearly havent got a clue about if you wana see top class rabbiting terriers work give me a pm Old style this old style that i personaly have a total fasination with alll things old from tools,agriculture,dogs and what have you and i highly highly doubt that any of these old style rabbit catchers used terriers!In those days d
  10. ...bred to kill it's quarry not flush, Come on stiggy! Well it looks like its just me then ....i dont keep bushing terriers ratting terriers mouseing terriers or birding terriers or whatever the f**k you lads do with them. I keep digging Terriers there origional and proper function for a dog of that breeding and ...the only true way id call a terrier a working dog ! You lads really think that a terrier would out class a spaniel in its origional function?To find and flush game ?Im sure your terriers make just fine bushing dogs but a half decent spaniel bred from worker to worker as i

    Dos Santos and Jones the next big things in there divisions?Guida another heart raceing fight.Surley one of the best to watch ! Whats everyones call on the GSP vs Hardy fight.I really hate to bet against my fellow countryman but i think i hope im wrong GSP is going to take him apart.Mir Carwin is a much harder call i love the way Mir fights but i cant stand his personality but i think hes got his hands full with the beast.W Whats everyones thoughts? All the best s
