Decent little drink Charts, nice folk up here, had some decent scran in the Greek place, no feeling bloated, just right.

There's a Wetherspoons next to the big car park, allways decent for a cheap pint and a meal 👍

Cheers.

Yeah, I feel the same fellah,...I don't really care whether a pup of mine goes to a working or a pet home, just as long as it is well cared for...👍  I always try to gift pups to genuinely nice gu

lol.....lets be honest gene...your life partner  is wearing the trousers...  and there's no way he's letting you get a dog

If you’re dealing with decent fellas & you’re a decent sort yourself you’ll get a pup for free, it’s the ones charging a grand id be wary of

I don't think any of the recent dogs will make a "name" for themselves comparable to the old dogs like Lucky, simply because they don't get the same exposure due to the draconian anti hunting laws .

The coursing comps like the Forley were eagerly awaited and well attended, but now they exist, if at all, in name only and are surreptitiously ran and sparsely attended.

I used to attend my local coursing club, The Border & Coquetdale, and there would be hundreds there. A mornings coursing, then into the Three Wheats Head at Thropton for lunch and the craic, then back out for the afternoon session.........now I still go up there, but it's by myself with one dog for a quick run and off before someone calls the police.

I was at the last Waterloo Cup for the full three days, the end of an era.

The big money matches may still go on, but are mostly kept very quiet, so only a select few will really know what the top dogs are.

Sad, but that's the reality of it 👍

Cheers.

My son went to boarding school in Ashby de la Zouche, Leicester, and I visited on many occasions, and, on reflection, I'd rather stay in the North East, thanks 😂👍

Cheers.

Yeah mate it can just be luck with people like that, me myself the few lads I run with get theirs for free, which isn’t many I keep myself to myself, and rest go to pet homes. Most dog lads are messing c**ts that don’t know what they want, one minute it’s deer dogs then it’s terriers then it’s a fox dog then it’s back to coursing dogs. I’d sooner know my pups was laid in front of a fire getting looked after than getting passed round one messer after another

I always try to gift pups to genuinely nice guys,.. I've no desire to profit from a litter..

Also, there is always the risk (albeit it miniscule) that the person who you allow to take a pup for free , turns out, not to be the man, you thought that he was, and instead he mistreats or neglects the poor tyke...

In that case,.. because no money has changed hands, and no financial agreement put in place,...it is far easier to ask for the pup back....😉

Personally,.. I love seeing my pups blossom and develop into made rabbiting dogs...

Kinda makes everything worthwhile...👍

Yeah that’s the trouble mate, I’ve seen it few times over the years, a friend of a friend who’s vouched for “a proper dog lad” they say, gets a pup. Next thing you know it’s 6 months down the line, the lads in to motorbikes or hawks & the pup has to go, turns out he’s put no time in so you’re left with a 7/8 month old dog that’s backward in the head getting passed from one person to another. Dogs never had a chance, then some idiot will breed off it eventually and the cycle repeats

That's why I'm reluctant to buy an older pup, you don't know how it's been tested already, doesn't take much for an idiot to overmatch it and possibly ruin it, plus you're always asking yourself why are they getting rid of a young prospect.

Done it before but wouldn’t these days, even if you get lucky and it’s not been ruined you’ll still never get that bond with it or get it 100% how you want it like you do with a puppy straight out the nest

Always had pups never a problem rescued this lad from dogs home totally different ball game took approx 9 months just to settle . I assume he had been badly beaten as a youngster as even today at 12 yrs old still has a  mistrust of men . But he has been a brilliant companion and now his back legs are a bit dodgy and he suffered a bad injury at 4 just kept as a pet  . Reason I didn't get another dog as is he to keen on them either so will bide my time . Same as I have always been with the dog when PTS hardest thing you can do but you owe it to comfort it and not leave it in a strange place alone . As you wouldn't do it with a family member who was terminally ill .
