She is up to date with worming, I'll keep going with fatty foods and little but often will probably be better. And yeah it was very cold that day on the first picture (last winter). Feeding her butchers tripe and biscuits at the moment    

What biscuits you using pal? I’ve tried that tinned tripe this year but I didn’t rate it really.

I've used many different biscuits to try and get her into it... Varies skinners, Arden grange, James Wellbeloved etc. One of the best ones was Aldi surprisingly but still after a little while she stopped eating it

My beddy whippet was underweight to my surprise after I clippered his hair off after the season when it warmed up. He was 11.25kg. I’ve been on the case to put weight on him over the last few months. He’s 12.5kg now, I feed him chudleys working crunch on its own. Theres biscuits down pretty much all day, he eats about 2 tin fills a day. Took a leaf out of my mates book from when he had dogs. Gain 28 available 24/7 and lamped 5-6 nights a week. They were beasts! I put his biscuits down about 7 o’clock, he’s only just eaten them now. Free feeding seems to work for my dog

With regards to the butchers tripe, I was mixing it with skinners muesli. His weight went up to 12ish kg. But his stamina went terrible, few tennis ball throws and he was done. Since he’s been on chudleys working crunch on its own, his weight has increased and he’s 100mph everywhere off lead. Big difference in energy

I tried this tonight along with an egg and olive oil (I don't have any sheep/goose fat)... She loved it 

If she loved it keep doing it just increase each meal slightly and get some fat as well you have been given some advice I'm sure she will look different in a few weeks good luck buddy

Sometimes you just gotta stop swapping.

Pick one and stick with it.

Won't be an easy week but eventually that dogs gonna have to eat it....

      Just got this stunning little bitch, nearly 12 months old, Deerhound x Bedie grey.
      I used to go out with my dad's Lurchers when I was a kid but I'm a female in my 30's now and struggling to get back into the swing of things.
      I'd love to have this girl knocking down bunnies but I just don't know where to start, I've barely seen a rabbit or and other quarry since I moved here.
      Any of you experts in my area fancy giving me some advice/practical experience (hunting related only)

      Some of you may remember back in March 21 I had my bitch spayed and a lump removed from her teats.
      Another lump has formed and after having a biopsy the result is that it's deffo cancer. 😢 
      Vet says we're looking at about a grand to treat/remove it with no guarantee of success.
      She will be 12 in about 6 weeks.
      I'm monitoring the size and if it's growing quickly it's gonna be a PTS scenario but I'm of the mind to see how she goes over the summer and let her get some sun on her back and then PTS, obviously if she's feeling it I'll do the deed sooner.
      f***ing dogs eh?
      Cheers, D.

      What do folk use for keeping their dogs at the height of cleanliness? 
      Mostly talking about ears here, the amount of gunk that seems to build up resulting in all night head shaking is phenomenal. 
      How cropped are you keeping nails? Best tooth and gum care?
      Seems not to be a topic but I know everybody is keeping their dogs in top condition

      My mate who i do a bit of ratting with is looking for a Whippet or Whippety Lurcher pup.
      Idealy he's looking for a small, fast dog that is tough enough to rat alongside terriers, ferret and lamp with.
      A full whippet would be great but one with plenty of poke and will get stuck in to the rough and tumble of ditch side ratting days on freezing open land.
      There's no rush but if anyone can point him in the right direction that would be welcome.
      Thanks.

      Hello, would just like a few pointers from the more experienced members than me on the best way or their particular methods of breaking terriers to livestock? I have a relative that keeps poultry on an allotment that would let me take my pup through, but he’s 5 months now and like most working bred terriers he’s feisty and excited by fur and feather. I wouldn’t want any nasty mistakes to happen so any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
