im not saying i dont like the books..i have only seen the four terrier books which i have here..they are good books,dont be so defensive darcy :thumbs:

don't be so defensive that's a laugh a person has to be defensive on the internet you never know who's out there :blink:

some people crack me up..do you think being defensive is putting up a phone number to sell dogs? :wankerzo4:

Gunner your probably right. 10 years ago there probably wasn't 100 working type wheatens left and less staffs (I talk of Ireland) but they were in the hands of proper dog men and were in no danger of dieing out.

Nowadays there are any amount of wheatens and staffs of Irish lines. But there were probably better strong dogs 10 years ago.

I haven't seen the book yet but I personally know a few of the names behind it and the truth will be told from experience and fact. Also these men have no profit to be made from telling it like it was about these dogs.

Also these dogs deserve their place in working dog history.

As for a band wagon to jump on??? I think the band wagon started about 8 or 9 years ago.

 

 

right there Neil.Its a pity that the working of these dogs is consigned to history due to stupid laws etc.I wouldnt know anything about the early origins of the wheaten ,Glen ,kerry blue etc . but id imagine it took hundreds of years to get them to where they were in the 60s ,70s etc.Would you think the working wheaten of today is a shadow of what it was? (not a loaded question) .Its going back to when i was a child the last time i saw a proper wheaten(i.e not a small old english sheepdog type show dog).

I believe from the right yard the wheaten of today is as good as and in some case better than yesteryear ,Thats my honest opinion ,no doubt the experts will know different .

No probs, You have to be defensive!!lol

 

I know the books are far from perfect, but i hope to improve them shortly now that i know what direction i need to go in. I have tried a few experiments with the books in the past few years and digested all feedback, both good and bad. Hopefully they will see a marked improvement.

i really like dig deep and little dogs with big hearts,i often think it would be interesting for someone to do a modern version of the book..fell terrier,an up to date and in depth book on blood lines, men and terrain..the nearest thing to that i have seen would be the broadhurst book..terriers and terriermen

 

No offence to anyone but I expected a lot more from "Terriers and terriermen" and was by and large dissapointed.It lacked a lot of filling and true content and I felt the author didnt make a good enough effort to ensure this.

IMO there are a few wheatens today that would be good enough to have held their own in the 70s and early 80s but personally I think the vast majority of todays wheatens would have been considered culls in those days. This is due to the few men who churned them out for money.

There are however a few lads left who keep and work them right and don't see ££££££s and in their hands the strong dog is safe.

But I could be wrong as I haven't been around strong dogs in 3 or 4 years.

Yes it's a book that would grace any fanciers book shelf.

If I'd have any problem with it is that it has given me a longing to have one of the terrier killing b*****ds back around me, LOL.
