    Antique table

    Its a lovely table. I don't worry about fashionable furniture. I prefer good solid old fashioned brown wood.

    Need some shoe recommendations.

    MBT are good if you have a bad gate. They do tend to make you walk better. They make brogues, sandals and trainers. I have some sandals and plain brown leather shoes. I like them because I have flat feet and plantar fasciitis and they are more comfy to walk in than a lot of makes

    Hypoallergenic Gundog Food

    Skinners are doing a grain free which is very good. Chicken and sweet potato. New pup couldn't get on with normal diet, so we tried him on it and we were so pleased with it all our dogs are on it now. They all have lovely glossy coats on it. Around £35 a bag.

    It could reduce a grown man to tears

    OH told me about some dealers who keep an eye on the Radio Ham obitaries and target the Widows to clear the radio gear. Often offering a fraction of their worth.

    A jolly drive to Cambridge

    How many off you say "bang" as well when you do your pigeon shoot while driving. There is many a pigeon and crow that has winged on to the two of us saying bang as we drive along

    Which dog

    Hence my last paragraph. There is nothing to stop them breeding pedigree dogs with a pedigree once the maximum litters allowed by KC is complete. They can come with a pedigree showing lineage. They just won't be kennel club registered. Many good purebred gundogs are not kennel club registered either. Years ago the KC didn't provide pedigree certificates, you had to handwrite your own. The KC registration was a load of form filling in and sending off by post for a separate certificate of registration. Looking at some of the monstrocities that are KC registered and win at their shows its not always the best reccomendation.

    Energy drinks

    Tried red bull once, didn't like it. I confess to being fond of the occasional lucazade.

    Which dog

    The diversity of breeds we have today have been created by doing just that. Selecting different breeds and crossing them to obtain something different. If a breeder and owner of two gundog breeds has found by crossing them they obtain dogs that suit their purpose I see nothing disreputable in that. Its when dogs are churned out to suit a market regardless of health, temperament and suitability just to make money without concern for the dog and bitch and puppies welfare and developement it becomes disreputable regardless of whether they are purebred or crossbred.

    Keeping Cats Indoors

    He is a very big cat around 5kg. Probably thinks most small things apart from the odd mouse are not worth having. His hunting is very human in some ways. The pigeons he debreasts and leaves the rest. The crows, squirrels, rats and mice he doesn't eat.

    Keeping Cats Indoors

    I have a catflap. My 18 year old rarely goes out now. The others do go out, apart from my spynx who has never shown any interest in going out. The only one that hunts to my knowledge is the great white hunter who catches pigeons, crows, squirrels, rats and mice then leaves them on the doorstep. Not seen him catch any small birds yet unless he eats them before coming home.
