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.😁

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 😂

I know nothing of Plummer terriers.I do know about American KC beagles.When my wife and daughters wanted an inside pet that's what I got them as I knew it would be no trouble and I knew he wouldn't bother the rabbits in my front yard.😂

His call name is worthless.

Was it broken to rabbits or possessed no hunting instincts at all? I've seen some weird and wonderful breeds and mongrels make useful rabbit hunting dogs and would have thought any Beagle type could be easily switched on to them. A KC Beagle x KC Manchester Terrier a friend owned made a superb rabbit hunter.

If it came out of Plummer’s mouth , it’s a lie.

if he was alive today he’d be banned from keeping dogs ,

and this site would be laughing at the pillock.

his animal husbandry was appalling .

there aren’t many people I dislike but 

that man lied , lied , copied and lied again .

just my opinion

I never met the man.

read his books that’s all.

I have and had friends who were active with the little 

dogs in his day.

im yet to hear a good word.

ive nothing against the Plummer terrier , not keen on the name , but more work has been done for the breed since

he passed.

again , just my opinion.

I think that Mr Plummer's biggest fault  was that he made a few Bob,............over my life time none of the experts can stand a Man who can make a few Quid .

 

There may well be truth in that mate.

His books were based on other lads days out

not his own.

working dogs and money are poles apart for me.

He's never showed an interest even though he sees them daily.In my opinion there's a big difference between a "beagle" and a rabbit dog.Most good rabbit dogs in my area look like beagle Chihuahua crosses or beagle basset hound crosses.😂 I have seen several American KC beagles from different sources and didn't like any of them.I seen good KC coonhounds, hogdogs, even seen a good KC Russell once.I have never seen a decent hunting American KC beagle.Ive hunted with around 40 different ones from 5 sources.Just my opinion though.
