    People pretending their dogs are strays.

    Whilst the owners doing this are scum and at fault, the responsibility lies with every ‘breeder’ who cashed in on the demand. I know breeders who missed last chance opportunities with a dog or bitch to ensure they didn’t fall into the trap that the car crash of lockdown puppies were creating. It...

    In the words of Dame Shirley Bassey….

    Thank you. I think I am a pastoral convert. I’d like to think I’d one day perhaps have another rough collie too, but enjoy every day with my old remaining man and hope we have many years of them still to come. It has been a rough year here in many ways so this chap will go some way to doing...

    Lost a dog today…so very sad 😢

    My last two that have gone have both been before their time, long before really - and I found it so so much harder than losing one of my old timers. I am so very sorry for your loss. It really is different to losing one of your oldies. I still can’t talk about the chap who left my earlier this...

    Buying puppy advice

    Echoing the others - he is smashing. They are a wonderful breed.

    Time to look for a puppy

    Exciting. Teaching my granny to suck eggs here but I often think the best and most ‘locally suited’ gun dogs are keeper bred rather than big kennels etc. Do you know what colour/sex you will go for?

    In the words of Dame Shirley Bassey….

    Typically I had wanted to call him Spencer but thanks to the impending film I fear this will be assumed to have/come with royal connotations so we are back to the drawing board!

    Thank you. I still owe OH a MLDH, but won this one. He is very lovely and those who have met him at the breeders, who know their corgis, have all commented on how lovely and quiet he is. I think I will hopefully have less of his antics to share than madams :)

    They grow into them in the end…but in terms of listening device they are quite marvellous at hearing the opening of a packet, fridge door or even telepathically hearing any food related thoughts.

    The breeding and selling of banned breeds

    I think sadly you’d be surprised how often this goes on. There is someone locally who is quite brazen on social media that they are breeding pit bulls, they have had some dogo Argentino types imported and what they call ‘bloodhound crosses’ but mutual friends tell me are imported fila’s. they...

    Rant - The Current Dog 'Pandemic'

    She is lucky she isn’t in the bin today, let’s put it that way! Wouldn’t surprise me if she could teach herself to use the phone, she knows to nudge the remote to turn the tv off and does this frequently - usually when being ignored for a ‘lucky not to be in the bin’ behaviour.

    Rant - The Current Dog 'Pandemic'

    And I have his miniature GSD counterpart. I think the word mitigate is key, as you say, with some dogs. I know madam will always try throw her weight around from time to time just to chance it, always think everything is hers until told otherwise, always know better and have more energy than the...

    Rant - The Current Dog 'Pandemic'

    Bred at around 13 months. Two bitches of cocker/poodle/collie x Lord knows what breeding. One mated to a ‘cockerpoo’. Another mated to a ‘patterpoo’. Both belonging to other parents at the school their kids attend. 6 pups in one litter. 7 pups in another. God bless having an OH who loves a...

    Rant - The Current Dog 'Pandemic'

    We encountered the bank of reproductive organs again. Conversation with an acquaintance we bumped into on a dog walk this evening. A friend of a friend really. I had mentioned about new pup. Acquaintance: another corgi? A boy I assume? Me: a dog, yes. Why? Them: well you’re gonna breed that...

    In the words of Dame Shirley Bassey….

    I of course think so too. Aside from being like the love child of Paddington bear, and super chilled out - he’s shaping up to be actually a very nice example of the breed already. Of course how they are at this age is never an indication but he has the seal of approval from the corgi people who...
