    Dogs humping things

    Our intact 3 year old has taken to humping her spayed sister, we stop it as soon as we see it, but I think it's a confidence thing with the new youngster and the dog sat girl having just been spayed and having to be kept separate. Hoping that she'll calm down as everything gets back to normal.

    It’s no longer true that hard work…

    I grew up not far from the Whitaker farm and riding school, Micheal and John had nothing handed to them on a plate! There are two other brothers who also worked on the farm. Their father, Donald ran a mixed livestock farm and tight did not begin to describe him. In common with other farming...

    Puppy biting

    If you have two pups together, you have to be interesting to them, so that they don't learn to ignore you. One of the rotters was quite happy to leave her sister and her people to get into trouble😁. I'm pretty sure she'd have been the same if she'd been an only dog.

    Neuro/pain/twitching

    Could it be a form of epilepsy? The shaking and saliva sound possibly indicative, hope you manage to get to the bottom of it soon

    Allergy to Agrobs Wiesencobs?!?!

    Our reactive appy is fine with weisen cobs, but I'm sure that anything can baa reactive to anything! I don't give her alfalfa or linseed either!

    So as not to derail another thread: does your dog need to bring you toys when you come in?

    Dad's elderly black lab had a washing basket full of toys, which she had shared with her sister. She had two reindeer, which she kept to give to visiting dogs. She gave them to the visiting Dalmatian and staffy and then to the rotters when they were little.

    So as not to derail another thread: does your dog need to bring you toys when you come in?

    Butterscotch lab loves to carry a toy around at home, black one not that bothered, but the black one will carry a ball whenever she's out on a walk. The baby brown girl hasn't quite decided yet.

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    I think you will find that in some of the programmes you are talking about, that the prey are indeed "set up" for the filming.

    New puppy

    What a pretty girl she is!

    All change.

    Oh lordy, that does sound awkward, poor creature, did she have very little interaction with other dogs as a puppy farmed animal?

    All change.

    It's fascinating how the established ones show them how to go on, which also makes life easier, or so we find.

    Should there be a weight limit for people at shows (and if so, what and how?!)

    I do think that people also forget that disordered eating is not just about anorexia and being too thin.

    Should there be a weight limit for people at shows (and if so, what and how?!)

    The approach that is taken should surely depend on the age of the girl in the picture.

    Showing peeps please?

    Some local shows have combined coloured and spotty classes, your best bet is to contact the show secretary and ask

    Oh knowledgable ones

    Would it be worth checking with the registration body what their rules are for such a mark?

    Should there be a weight limit for people at shows (and if so, what and how?!)

    The stewards at most shows are volunteers, getting people to steward currently is tough going. If stewards are then going to be asked to challenge people regarding their weight ratio to their horses weight, there will be even fewer people willing to give up their time.

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    It certainly should be explained by the police officer offering the caution, but I have to say that a number of young people who I worked with in the past, did not understand the implications.

    Goodbye sweet little Beata

    So sorry to hear this, but as you say, having her in your life was worth the pain of now.

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    I have no knowledge of these activities and I suggest that if you have, that you report your suspicions to the police in that area.

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    The change to hunting mink was in the 1970s, as milikins said. You rather failed to explain that what you were alluding to was not in fact the post you quoted, but other information which you claim to have. Our local otterhounds disbanded at the time of the hunting act, having changed from...

    Please can you explain how you interpreted that as saying that mink are currently hunted?

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    Not in the huge numbers which flooded our local area. I was speaking to one of the ALF terrorists about this, in about 2010, that person had no idea of the impact of the releases, nor had they heard of the large number of mink run over on local roads at the time.

    Quite, no one had said that mink are currently hunted, that was rather my point about you not reading and comprehending

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    Your inability to read and comprehend, appears to have left you down, in this instance. Otter hunting stopped in the 1970s, when the hunts changed to mink, some considerable time before the hunting act! And as an aside, mink, which are not a native animal, were released locally, by the ALF and...

    Woman killed and man injured in Rotherham dog attack

    And let's face it, anyone who was a responsible owner would have ensured that the dog did not get too hot!

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    How interesting to see that some people appear to agree with "the rule of law" and the justice system, when the outcome supports their view, but then claim luck, or an incorrect decision, when the outcome disagrees with them.

    Please don't state as fact, something which you believe about another poster.

    Consultation, decision making, LACS and the Lake District National Park...

    Whatever your beliefs are about hunting and trail hunting, surely those systems which are in place, for decision making, should be followed. That one person can dictate what will happen, seems extremely undemocratic. He is not the land owner and is surely answerable to his employers?
