Best of luck jigsaw I hope your bitch takes, if everybody took the same time and energy as you into the work of both parents the dog pounds up and down the country wouldn't be full of potlickers, if your bitch takes I hope you get the right owners for your pups atb.

I took my last lurcher Moss (1/4 kelpie 1/4 collie 1/2 greyhound) out as the retrieving dog for my mate with his air rifle. He liked it so much that whenever I was walking him and a firework went off he'd race over to the nearest bushes expecting to find a rabbit. The only problem I've found with the retrieving of my pure kelpies is that they have a stronger sense of which job each of them should do so I often find I only have one retriever. Rusty was always my retriever (no matter which one caught) and Noggin took over when he died. Now I come to think of it...Rusty didn't catch a single rabbit until the weekend after Moss left...maybe he thought that wasn't his job either!

Saw that a few times when dogs are walked or worked together, they settle into diff roles an one will only step into a diff role if the other ain’t there, must be hard wired from when they was still in packs👍

 W. Katchum: I think you're probably right; it certainly makes sense.

Does that mean that I'll only have to put up with one over friendly nutter with no concept of personal space until Ned dies? I love that dog but boy is he bloody annoying. On a positive note, whenever I talk about Ned I often find myself saying, "but, then again, Rusty was the same as a pup" and another Rusty would be a wonderful way to spend the next fifteen years.
