Spent time this evening with a friend waiting to get her 7 yo homebred PTS.

I spent yesterday checking through 5 acres of meadow ready for mowing. I removed two feed sacks of ragwort -it has taken 23 years of constant removal to get to a few plants per acre. Adjoining is about half an acre of council owned rough land with quite a bit of yellow showing.
I just phoned...
Looking to buy a puppy this weekend -
In the first instance choose a breed or type to suit your lifestyle not just just because the advert has a cute photo. A dedicated breeder will be honest about their breed and tell you the pros & cons those in it for the money will only stress the good...

Just got back from a trip to Meadowhell, sorry Meadowhall, and found the best bargain in the mall at the tool stall in the lanes.
A yellow hi viz tabard with lots of silver reflective and flashing red lights (takes 2xAA batteries) just down to half price so only £4.50 and a good adult size...
After all the moaning threads this morning I have one positive note -
My boots are clean so I can leave them on to get in the house to make a coffee.
Any more positives?
( & I agree with a lot of the moans)
As luck would have it my 3yo had one of the Dud Virbac chips and we have been waiting for Virbac & the PIA to work out how to get the rechipping sorted.
My vet is being paid to come on Monday and Jethro is now rather hairy and I'm not planning to rug for another month if possible.
