Don't look that old mate, what age in the pic?

Cheers, D.

They dont need to be able to see when there working... they use there nose.. and I aint being smart.... for that age she looks like an out and out sounder...so why not use her? Genuine question.

Real Working terriers I believe... if going to croke it would rather do it in the dark than in the kennels...if she still moves round healthy enough id still let her put  shifts in no problem 👍

Surely if the man says the bitch is finished working then shes finished working he knows her best. Is there any point in working an 11 or 12 yr old bitch who's grafted hard all her life only to see her hard earned reputation tarnished by putting in a shift shes not up to anymore. The bitch is surely worth more than a man's ego. People often forget to retire a dog in time before there body starts to weaken after all the years hardship.  When they give everything to the cause we should afford them that decency I reckon. Not having a go just my opinion

Saved me some typing that, agree 100 %

Stop.end I know the bitch inside out, show her a hole that's holding and she will stay till the jobs done, there's not alot that has ever pushed past her, she's as good a digging dog as I've ever seen, I've nothing to prove to anyone, I can't watch the dog do a shift and not be able to move for a week afterwards..... Or be f****d to put her face back together, she totters about on walks and follows the sound of my voice. What sort of a prick would risk losing her just to stroke his own ego? 1304503953_2017-03-2614_23_41.jpg.1452913a9ce717e14afb722d05d9f07e.jpg

She’s earned her retirement DC keep it that way, sometimes it makes more sense not to enter a dog than to enter it. 👍

There nothing worse than see a good digging dog who has grafted all is life making hard work of a animal he would have stopped in its tracks when he was in his prime, they should be treated with the respect they deserve there not machines no worker once to ever retire but sometimes you have to safe them from their self's,let them injoy there retirement.

Common sense dictates whether they can put a shift in, I'm always torn between retirement or work, work usually wins. You can always pick their places, the alternative is them watching you get ready knowing full well where you're going and wondering why they can't go, they don't know that they're old, work them accordingly.

And it shouldn't be about ego ever
