When the saluki greyhounds we’re starting to be the main things,I remember joey Anderson and my mate Quinny had them.Joey had cruise and quinny had a big 28-29 inch dog called feather.That’s when cruise was starting to get a name for its self anyway feather was doing good to quinny sold it for a £1000 which was really big money then to some lads.They tan the death out of him till it jacked and sold it back to quinny for £600.You could see the dog had no life left in him even though it was knocking 5-6 at a time with quinny and joey.

"I was walking a pup I had in the valleys and happened into a chap who was shooting a bit close to me, to warn me away from walking near a field or whatever, so I went over to chat as he was shouting at me lol. Turns out he was the local go to guy to have a dog shot, and told stories of dogs being shot on the lead unexpectedly by their owner etc who didn't want to witness the deed, this although odd to tell a stranger wasn't anything particularly odd, but then told me of his bull X's and how his best bitch spat a fox at 9 years old and had been a solid dependable dog her whole life but he only kept workers and shot her on the spot. This for me wasn't respecting an animal that had given its life to his entertainment at the end of it, not to even get a last meal, never mind a fireside retirement. Not for me .."

 

🤔I've met several, similar types,...some of these guys spend, literally thousands of pounds, on a specific type...

Money is no object to these men,...they have a passion which possibly borders upon obsession...🙄

One felleh I encountered, had the most beautiful and seemingly, capable running dog composites,...I used to watch them grow from fat pups into the consummate adult canine athletes.

They were fabulous creatures,...unbelievably fabulous.👏

I never quite got over the situation when I would visit the guy a few months later and the crop had been replaced, by fresh blood,.some adults and some untried saplings.

The gorgeous originals were always gone....and I do mean,.gone😉

I've put a few dogs to ground myself, over the last 60 years,.but nothing on the scale of these perfectionists...

 To me, the culling of a promising young tyke always seemed a bit of a waste....

Obviously, not all dogs that are required to fulfil a particular task, will make the cut,...we all have failures ,...but feck me...every time..surely not🙄 I have frequently mentioned this apparently essential search, for the ultimate canine to such lads and generally they give me a queer old look, almost bordering upon pity....

"Its all about standards mate,...its all about standards,...You wouldn't understand...."

Well, maybe not,.but all I know is that one can go through a whole lot of jukels to obtain this wonderous world beater.

I have often thought,...is it really worth all the pain and heartache....?

In truth I do not understand,..and as I look down at my happy and contented, roustabout 'rabbiting curs',..

I know, in reality,..the truth of the matter is,..I don't really want to understand....😉

Stay safe now Brothers,..all the best, OldPhil.🙏

The truth of it is these types of people are chasing Elysium and will never be happy with what’s in their kennel … they are not true dog men that can work around a dogs quirks and get the best out of it they want perfection and spend a lifetime chasing it only to realise when they’ve made old bones that there is no such thing  ……

Here is another question for the panel - on the same theme.

We have talked about a few dogs who suddenly just threw the towel in for no reason and that was that, done and dusted.

So had anyone had an animal do that, for no apparent reason, no injury, just not interested, and then decide to have a re think and carry on without doing it again. Assuming it was already doing the job for a while, not a young dog etc.
