Popular Post FUJI 15,531 Posted September 1, 2022 Popular Post Report Share Posted September 1, 2022 I still have a team of lurchers (cripples & pensioner's) just! I'm down to the 4 lurchers now,old Don is still here with me,he will be 14 on his next birthday,Boots will be 10 year's old come the 1st October & I have his two pup's as I call them although they will be 4 year's old next week on the 9th September,Bear broke his neck a long while back now & unbelievably he fractured another bone in his neck back in February whilst out working,he must be one of very few dog's that's broken his neck twice & is still alive,he's ok again now,not great but just ok,his sister Rose snapped both her femur & ulna bones in her leg also in February out working,she's been a cracking animal she has,both of them would run through fire to catch,that's been both of their demise unfortunately but I'd rather have a dog that gives it's all each & everytime over a half hearted type..to say it's been an expensive,stressful time is probably the understatement of the year but still it is what it is..you could call my squad Dad's Army because that's what they remind me of ..I'm certainly not expecting any of them to break any record's this season,I'd be happy if they broke nothing!! Rose is coming along grand,she won't be the dog she was prior to breaking her leg but she will 100% put plenty of gear to rest I have no doubt about that,Bear will be as he has been since he initially broke his neck,basically no one else would keep him as a working dog but I love the dog so I'll just potter about doing what we do & give him the best chance of success as I can without embarrassing the dog..old Boots has been a superstar for me & he's currently looking fantastic,he's in rude health & I'm sure he will be my number one again this year even at ten years of age..I guess anything we catch we can call it a bonus,the day's of guaranteed success with them are sadly no more but we will enjoy our day's out regardless.. nothing lasts forever as they say,enjoy your 4 legged friends whilst you can,make memories & enjoy your success with them,hope your season is fruitful & is injury free.. keep on keeping on folk's 39 Quote Link to post
