Haven't been on here in ages, just thought I'd share a few recent pictures of my pup Simba as he approaching his 1st birthday, he's all stripped out for the summer and showing my plenty of promise of what's to come this season. He's just touching on 26tts now, bigger than I expected seeing as dam and sire were 24.5 and 24tts respectively. He's had a handful of rabbits on the lamp end of season to get an idea of what the game is about and has no trouble picking them up, he's already used his size to his advantage a couple of times and keeping the freezer full too. Really happy with him so far even if he's practically untrainable. He doesn't entertain retrieving yet but maybe he'll get the idea when the real work starts. 20200530_165031.jpg.516cf152bd98f8a13bd92c62869ca4d1.jpg

The whole litter seems a cracking litter if I bred them I’d be well impressed with them tbh they’re all pretty uniform in type bitches all seem even in size an build it’s the same with the dogs in the litter there the same they’ve all been self enterers bar one I think that went to a sporting home they seem really keen to get on an work ray. Mines not keen on retrieving ray I’ve said to vicky that my bitch is by far the hardest bitch I’ve ever had to train to retrieve But it’ll be what it’ll be on the night if it happens it happens I’ll continue to train it if they retrieve they retrieve it’s not like there’s any numbers on the rabbit front any how so it’s not a must or that any of us a dedicated ferreters wanting ferreting types that need a retrieve or just for rabbit lampers For numbers I think everyone who’s got one of these pups are not dedicated rabbiting folk but wanted a bedlington x bred to do what there traditionally bred for obviously in the guide lines of the law an all that

Good stamp how’s he bred 

I have the dam here, easy answer is a bedlington lurcher, I did find out as much as possible about his last 6 or 7 generations of breeding which luckily is well documented so the serious answer is this as I sat down to work it all out recently

He's very unenthusiastic avout toys, dummies, balls etc. At most he will chase them and pick them up, might do a little circle with them then drops them to change the game. He's had 3 rabbits on lamp, first two he brought to me but only when I left the field and he followed, the third he caught close to me so didn't need retrieving. Hoping that he'll get the idea the more he lamps that the sooner he brings it back the sooner we find another run.

The dam is a really decent retriever, not always live to hand but always comes back if she can carry it. Brings rabbits back over fences and gates and picks up partridge, pigeon and pheasant on shoots. Not sure why her pups are so different but oh well! These are bred to be alrounders and not everything needs retrieving so it's not the end of the world but it does make it easier when they bring things back.

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks

      Hello to all.
      I would like some help with our lurchers coat. Luna is 3 this year, her Mum was a Border Collie x Whippet (merle) her Dad a Whippet x Greyhound (Non-Merle). I think she has the harlequin merle modifier gene, I don't think she is double merle, her Dad was not cryptic as far as we can tell. She has no helth issues eyesight excellent and her hearing is as selective as any lurcher. 
      She is a stunning wee dog, very unique markings, great temperament.
      Any help appreciated.

      Anyone ever worked a deaf lurcher by any chance?..reason behind the question is I’ve bred a retired dog to a Merle bitch an I took my pup from it the biggest of the lot black and white with two ice blue eyes but I’ve noticed he can’t hear anything bangs or anything like that there’s only a odd reaction to some stuff but his eyesight is 100% very good eyes. I’m just curious because it’s all I have from this old dog and I was thinking could I use the pup lamping and out with terriers any info be [BANNED TEXT]. The father was not Merle only mother...

      Help Required as to ancestry /history of my saluki /Greyhound. 
      I have just lost my dog of a lifetime to cancer, she was 11/12 yrs old.I am truly heartbroken. 
      I'm not a hunter,but have always loved sight hounds in particular salukis.
      My dog Fern was a very distinguishable sighthound ,her colouring alone a mutated dilute. Was quite a show stopper. I'd have people literally stopping cars to ask what she was as she held herself well and looked awesome. 
      She was Steel and tan with a white butterfly on chest. White tips on feet. 
      Fur like velvet and shone.
      A glamourous looking dog.
      She passed through I believe 5 lurcher men before coming to me age around 4 yrs. 
      I had her 8 yrs. 
      I have  sketchy details of her young life and know she was initially used as a racing dog and then a lampers dog. Until she hurt her spine and broke a toe.  
      Fern was born around 2009,lived in North East England (Northumberland).
      I believe she had two litters of puppies (do you have one?)
      Lived Winlaton, Mickley,Prudhoe , Ryton, Greenside, Horsley.
      I believe her father (sire) may of being khan jihad. 
      I believe her mother (dam) was a steel greyhound and was a Irish coursing champion.  
      Does anyone know who that might be?
      Who bred Fern?
      Does her heritage fit time scale wise?
      I would dearly love to know as I said, totally in bits at her loss. 
      I just want to try and recreate her or seek out someone who might be able too from same lineage. 
      Whilst I'm not a hunter, I turned Fern from huntress to helper in that I used her skills and abilities to bring deer out to me to photograph, as I'm a professional photographer. We were quite a team. 
      I just loved everything about that girl.
      Thanks for any help received.
