This is the breeding behind her. If I’m not mistaken the gone digging blood is yours???

I dont know why gone digging has been added to the names. Only about 5 dogs in that done any amount of work id guess.

The sister of Bill was a small one, but massive heart, looking at the bottom half of that ped, id guess thatd shrink em. 

All the best with yours.

I've never realy heard anyone mention the hof dogs to much, besides there working ability or producing ability but yes could be used for that, but I guess is more so the same as bulldogs showing gr ch, just recognition in the ped of a true worker, again take it with a grain of salt, if somebody really wanted to put there dogs in there and lie enough I'm sure they could to use it for cash, 1 kennels dogs I have been curious if they deserved it or not, but all the rest i think are legitimate,

Here’s a question for you lads - with regard to your hunting seasons etc. When is the best time of year to be a hunting man in your country? 

Spring and summer, winter is mainly coon for barn hunting, they go in the barns to escape the cold,

Barn hunting is good fun, plenty of numbers if that's what you're after depending on weather and area.  

Some of the barns I hunted were huge, the old hay had been there for generations by the look of it, it turned to dust once you moved it about.  Some of the runs inside the barns were as good as a decent fox earth in the UK, I filled my boots and then some.

What style of terrier work did you think worked best for them barns? Did you need summat hard to keep them there or kill em? Didn’t they just try an climb up out way of dogs?

We were using bay and mix and straight out bayers, both as good as each other,  very similar to a fox, just more claws and more nimble. 

The mixers were heavily marked up, don't be fooled by the "easy title" , they can give plenty out especially in the numbers you find them in.

Ya bill has a massive heart like his sister And the son of his that I have is the same. 
 

As far as I know all the dogs in the pedigree have been worked as I have pics of all of them with the exception of two after work.  One of the two is Anne busty (swchab says she was worked but not as heavily as many others -that being said a lot of lines these days have her in them and they are planning out well she was the mothers to Edwards Simon who was a good one from my understanding)

im not into the whole hall of fame stuff. I obtained the mother to this dog because she heavily inbred on dogs that have Been proven as workers and producers. Which makes her ideal to use as an out to the other line of dogs with is also light bred on workers.

I did say 'amount of work' as in tested.

A few photos wont change my opinion im afraid, horses for courses, its all completely subjective.

Waz you just solved the problem with all working canines in USA.All canines here are judged by a few individual feats They should be judged by number of hard seasons worked.

Correct bud as should any terrier
