    Friends dog attacked

    I do hope your friend has joined the Protect Our Pets group. There is a new post today saying the Mirror want people to contact them if their dog has been attacked. This I think is just going to be an escalating problem due to the breeds and crosses that are popular nowadays and end up in...

    Friends dog attacked

    There is a group your friend could join - "Protect Our Pets". They are campaigning for dog on dog attacks to be made a criminal offence. I am so sorry for her. It is a huge worry of mine walking a small dog on my own.

    They say never meet your childhood hero....

    Errr, the ageing process doesn't help. I once met Richard Mead and he being the lovely man that he was, asked the name of my pony,. Now, in my memory I told him Astronaut, when chronologically it would have been Remus. I'm 64, LG is older, just saying...

    Do you think this would work at the caravan?

    Well I'm tight and camp with terrier a lot. I hammer a tent peg righ into the ground with a piece of nylon rope attached to it and tie him to that. It never shifts and my friend also attaches her large dog to it on occasions.

    Cecil, he’s still the best.. but

    He can come and wee on my washing anytime😜😍 I cannot remember when mine started cocking his leg but he will usually give something a good sniff before peeing on it so I would keep a watchful eye on Cyril and send him outside before he gets a chance to start. It's very hard as you don't want to...

    the gangs that steal dogs

    Well, this has been going on for years, predominantly gun dogs, lurchers and terriers. 11 years ago now my terrier was on a path 20 yards or so in front of me and just vanished off the face of the earth after going round a slight bend. I think the most scary thing now is that dogs are snatched...

    I WANT A CUDDLE!!! ☹️ He is the very first non cuddly dog I can remember in our family in 50 years 😞

    He’s here!

    I have to say I think he is just about perfect for what I want and goes anywhere and meets anyone and other dogs with no fuss as well as being very portable. His one drawback is that any affection is on his terms and if you think you can give him a cuddle, think again!! Hopefully Cecil will be...

    He’s here!

    Oh how I love him. The two pics below the nose stuck in cage pic could have been my chap as a baby. Mine threw himself into a mill race on a hot day when he was 12 weeks and I had an anxious wait on the other side of a small stone bridge till he emerged. I have just got back from 4 days...

    Right. You are going on UI😄. This is unbearably exciting at my age!! You can keep whoever today's equivalent of the Dream Boys is, but a pic of a terrier puppy has made me go all of a quiver😛. Off to study Preloved... 😜

    Saddle seat savers for sticking in the saddle!

    OK, despite not having ridden for years, I am somewhat of an expert here😁 Full seat breeches with some sort of rubbery stuff for the seat Keep saddle well moisturised with conditioner/soap etc so it's almost tacky I also got some stuff in a push up yellow container that you applied to the...

    Lurcher puppy coming home with me tomorrow!

    Well, you could have dropped me one off in Somerset on your way past!! Just lovely. I would call him Grabber 😊 There is a solitary Romany caravan on a lane near me with the best trad shaggy lurcher. They are just my favourite dogs. I am afraid I'm not keen on the bull crosses that are being...

    Oh my😍. He is so lovely. My terrier pup was in a cat carrier for the first few weeks in the car if I recall correctly.
