    Funny Joke Thread

    WHY MEN DON'T WRITE ADVICE COLUMNS... Dear John, I hope you can help me? The other day, I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching TV. My car started stalling and then broke down about a mile down the road. I had to walk back to get my husband's help. When I got home, I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbor's daughter! I am 32, my husband is 34, and the Neighbor's daughter is 22. We have been married for ten years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they had been having an affair for the past six months. I need advice urgently. Can you please help? Sincerely, Sheila Dear Sheila: A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If clear, check the vacuum pipes and hoses on the intake manifold. It could also be that the fuel pump itself is faulty. I hope this helps... John..

    Partridge?

    I don't know, I don't watch birds to be honest, I just know there's English partridge up there n never saw them all together like that before so wondered what it was. I thought it was quite interesting and good to see. I'm not that interested tho to have a row about it on THL

    Partridge?

    It's confirmed, it was an unusually early partridge. It was doing my head in so I rang rspb and a lady confirmed it. She knew because the young flew away aswell. Partridge can fly at about a week old. She was well excited when I told her!

    Partridge?

    Never heard of them being there before but do they nest together in groups? Or do they have young this time of year?

    Partridge?

    That's what I thought, too early but I definitely saw them, one bigger bird in the middle with about 4 smaller ones around it. It wasn't woodcock, I'm sure of that, didn't have the beak!

    Partridge?

    Just wondering if partridge could have had young now? I know it's not usually til March/April but I went out last night and saw something in the lamp. At first I thought it was a mixi rabbit because I could see it moving but it never ran off. I nearly slipped the dog but as I got closer I noticed it was some sort of ground nesting bird with young nestled around it. I tried to get a picture but they flew off as I was getting my phone out. Just wondered what it was?

    Mooching??

    Yes mooching can relate to ferreting don't really understand your question but hope I answered itWhat I meant was if someone was just walking across fields and woods in the day/evening Do people take a ferret and a couple of nets with them and the dogs on a walk? Or are they mooching on there permission Don't confuse mooching with poaching. which ones legal? I thought they both were?

    Bloody Sheep!!!

    Like I said, he's been shown them all his life and he's been right with them up until pretty recent. The first time he did it was a good few weeks ago and I'm fairly confident the "bollocking" was sufficient and this time was even more severe. There's no mistaking the the dog knew he'd done wrong. But it was too late, he's already done it. Thanks joe777 I will be getting a collar for it after reading that post and giving a go. Hopefully with a collar I can prevent if from happening in the first place and teach him that way

    He had a dog from the same breeding previously, and he got rid because it was a stock worrier. Most people would have twigged that there was a possibility that a pup from the same breeding would go the same way and take steps to prevent it happening. Did he? Its seems not. Some people no matter how much they love dogs should never have them. They are an accident looking for somewhere to happen, the problem is they give every other lurcher owner a bad name. TC And all said and done, it's not just down to it being that particular cross I agree with you 100%, yet a hell of a lot of other people have that cross with no problems, what does that tell you? TC Tells me all dogs are different pal

    Bloody Sheep!!!

    Is he saluki/bull/grey by any chance?Yes mate saluki, bull grey! How did you guess!? Your avatar pic looked like it might be. I've never owned one but My son had a pit that was very high energy as a young dog and I'd imagine that that combined with a saluki temperament might need careful stock breaking. Then again, any breed of lurcher can produce a pup which takes time to get properly steady with sheep. I'd say stick at it for a while before going with the E collar.Just to let you know mate, it's not actually the one in that picture. She's fine with sheep, very occasionally she will want to chase when they run but she listens as soon as I tell her. It's just my other dog, when he's focused on something, he doesn't want to listen! Are you on a wind up? FFS three dogs and they all chase sheep? Personally I think you are a first class idiot who should never own a dog again until you have been trained. If the above statements are the truth? TC Trouble taking in information??? One was already like that, it was three. Ones fine, every blue moon it will chase and try to play and has never actually attacked one and will stop when told to do so. And this one that I am trying to ask a genuine question about how to get it sorted that has attacked two but not every single time it's off the lead?

TC Re read the post, I did take steps to prevent it happening as I have stated in the post. The first dog was three and I got this one from eight weeks and he has been shown sheep from as long as he's been able to go out. It is only recently this has started to happen. And all said and done, it's not just down to it being that particular cross
