The terrier's he brought to Rotherham years ago were the real deal as digging dogs as a good mate of mine had them off him though they were nothing like the terrier's he created later on .

What type were they? Lived in Mexborough didn't he?

He talked some shite but I don't think the plummer was intended to be an all out digging dog anyway so judging them on their ability as digging dogs is daft

Considering the botch that started the line wouldn’t stay I don’t think they was 😂

Why he put an American show bred beagle into the mix is baffling to me and although I love his books the bloke was clearly mad as a hatter

Trying to breed a good nose into them?

My Mrs is from there she might have seen him knockin about 😂

I have heard loads of tales about him from some of the old Boys who i have met and are no longer with us and some whose words are as true as the day is long one tale old Barney Scofield (RIP) told me was how plummer wrote in his books he hardly slept and one day they turned up at his house and could see him asleep in the chair after hammering on the door and no amount of knocking could wake him up.😁

"You can see the bull terrier in that ones head"As he points to a snipey headed thing😂😂😂And what the f**k was wrong with them rabbits that them poxy old Alsatian's were catching?

Am I the only one noticed the first shepherd ran off when it came face to face with the rabbit?

He certainly talked some shite that's for sure but I loved his books and although it's clear the bloke was a bit of a numpty he has always fascinated me to be honest. One of his books he said he had a terrier bitch that hunted a roe for 5 hours and kept catching it and he kept releasing it only for the terrier to keep catching it again 😂
