Bedlington Northumberland


Recommended Posts

Seen loads dogs on all types of terriers Lurcher`s Sight hounds  Collies Gun dogs etc and seen some good and not so good in all them but over all as pure ratting dog got be Plummers. Seen them rat pig, chicken, cattle, grain, and general  farms, rubbish tips refuse places, Pheasant pens. Along river banks in woods all over the place really, do other breeds do the job of course they do and do it well as you know I always like to try something different as a challenge really, hence Ranger the Bedlington, Alf the Westie, and now Barney the Dandie.  Any way back to the point I would pick Plummer if you want it purely for ratting, most them still ratter regularly so you got good start. Now this is only my opinion based on the number times we are out and amount we put away.

I remember all the whippet racing tracks up around here.

Ashington, North Seaton, Bedlington, Cramlington, Seaton Burn, Killingworth, Coxlodge, Wallsend Rising Sun, Bigges Main, Westerhope.

Sadly only Rising Sun and Westerhope only still going, just.

Whippet racing is on the decline, but i'm seeing quite a few Bedlington terriers about.

Cheers.

Started my dogs days at Cramlngton/ Seaton Burn/ Coxlodge good memories.

Some of the tracks, like Wallsend Rising Sun, had a strict 21" limit; others like Seaton Burn had no limit. I still love to see the no limit scratch racing !

Cheers.

It was the 60's & 70's when I had racing whippets. I remember one of the Charlton brothers had whippets, Tommy, I think it was, at that time.

Cheers.
