    White paws

    I would be inclined to believe these markings go back to the St. John's water dog, which was more often than not marked with white on the chest and feet. Both my dark yellow lab bitches have white patches on the chest ( mother and daughter) and the pup has white tips on the toes of two paws, hence her name- tiptoe. White has been more easily hidden in yellow lines as it is not noticed so easy in a light yellow dog, but stands out on a black or dark yellow, these pups were probably culled in past times but now obviously sell for more as they are 'rare'.

    Side by side and 3 inch steel patterns

    Shot a good range wigeon this morning with a aya number 3 magnum and eley lightning steel 36g 3. Gun is choked 1/4 and 1/2. Just don't like seeing the gun covered in mud but prefer using it to an auto. Have also got a william ford 1200 bar 3". It is tightly choke and have not put steel through it yet, was thinking about gamebore super steel 32 size 4's. Anyone shot them through older tight choke guns?

    3 quality slip leads.

    Thanks red dot, glad you liked them

    3 quality slip leads.

    I make them out of 9mm military utility rope, it's very strong with a slight stretch, handy as a shock absorber if the dog hits the end. I use decorative knot work to attach the stainless steel rings and form the hand loop. They also have a rubber stopper that slides to prevent the slip loop opening. I have used all sorts of materials over the years from spliced nylon to braided para cord. I have found my current design to be the most suitable to date. I'll try and post a picture if I can.

    AYA Magnum

    I've got same gun with same chokes. I have used 42g tungsten matrix, and 36g number 3 steel. Not proofed for it but it's a strong gun in good condition so I use it. Used Ely lightning and gamebore mammoth

    Labrador pups

    I have six dark yellow/fox red labrador pups for sale. Sire is test wining picking up and wildfowling dog by mediterian blue. He's a large but athletic dog who is excellent on runners and afraid if no cover. Dam is fast and stylish picking up bitch who is also fearless in cover, line bred to greenbriar viper of drakeshead. Bred so I can keep a pup. Price £650 but good homes more important. PM for more details, I'm in swansea South Wales.

    What should I do - expensive boots not 100% comfy

    Had this with a pair of aigle's, left boot too tight but size up was like clown shoes. Just kept wearing them walking the dog and they eventually gave a bit. Most comfortable boots ever now. Hello by the way, do a lot of reading if here but hardly ever post. All the best
