Valleys was teeming with them back in the day mate, can't think of a village that didn't have at least 1 badger digging outfit😁😁

Yes mate. Plenty of really good russell and 'russell types' around then.  And plenty of work for em all.

and who knows what went into the russells he said he had em from one place they said he did`nt he had them from somewhere else he said he did`nt 😁 wonder if there is any documentation as to what went into them and from where ..

I would be surprised if they originated from them rough haired mongrely types he first brought to Rotherham all them years ago .

he said he had them from eddie chapman bert gripton bill brockley arthur nixon story changed that many times i think he had some from muriel  jones was even mentioned that corgi had gone in the mix who knows ... 

I very much doubt he had anything off Bert , as Bert once said after one meeting with him he was a fake , I’m sure others on here will know that .

Just been looking at a picture in a first edition of the first book he ever wrote with a few lads with some russel types that he claims were out of his old dog San that he mentioned in one of his books though i dont think their is any pictures of this dog any were .

And then theres the story of the top fighting dog The something White that he claimed went into his terriers.A top fighting dog that no bulldog man Ive ever spoken to has ever heard of and the dog who you wont find written about anywhere else or in any pedigrees apart from the fantasies that he wrote.

It was the English Bullshit Terrier.

Had to make the decision to let go of my little lad recently,shame as i really liked the dog but he just hated my mrs coming anywhere near me i think he thought i needed protecting from her 😆.....he showed teeth and had half hearted snaps at her quite a few times but properly kicked off at her a few months back so with a grandson i was hoping to introduce to the countryside alongside him it was a no brainer... he was an ok mooching type companion but too highly strung for normal everyday life he,s now living up near Cambridge with a caravan dweller lad i know....seems to be doing ok so alls well that ends well.

i know that ! ,,,, burt chucked a load of his books in the bin at one of the big game fairs ,,, he never had any off eddie bill brockley or arthur nixon either 

It was at the CLA Game Fair at Glanusk Park in 1976 when the Fell & Moorland had their first ever stand at a major Game Fair. We were all working on the stand when Plummer swanned up uninvited and dumped a load of his books on the stand for "someone to sell", then disappeared like a shot (he was never too comfortable in the company of "real terriermen" and preferred more impressionable school kids).

Next thing Old Bert had scooped the lot up and dumped them in the nearest rubbish skip.... with a few choice words.

For years afterwards he was threatening to sue the Club for the value of the books.... but much like a lot of the stuff he wrote, that didn't happen either.

My apologies if I've shattered anyone's illusions of the man, but it's not possible to rewrite history and that was the general impression of the man at the time.

Met the bloke who owed the bulldog that plummer used, another teacher and dreamer
