They certainly look well fed ...

People gone mad for “fox red” labs ... yellow labs used to cost the same as black ones but change the word yellow to “fox red” and you can almost double your price... more madness. 

It's called 'fashion' Lloyd. My first was a dark colour yellow lab, my second was white and I mean white as white, my third was a choccy and then labs started to to look like welsh sheep dogs(again fashion) and I changed to HPRs. I have been pleased to see a return of proper labs in the field in the last year or two, which is great.

Well i've never been one for fashion, i've had them since before they were fox red's,  i've also had black's , whites and yellow's in fact i've already got my name on another black, think i've had 9 lab's now. i've had spaniels, liver and white and black and white, only 6 of them. And obviously my pointers. Oh and i forgot 2 cockers.

You got a pup at a good time - With what has happened this year on several fronts in the Clumber world, i fear for the breed going forward

Yes, I did and he's from good stock, I spoke to the right people at the right time and fell on my feet. Still can't quite comprehend what happened with the Zuricks (I bought my first Clumber from Debbie) and then Jim Winter; been a bad year for the breed as they were pivotal in the resurrection of the Clumber as a working dog. However, I think there are now enough enlightened people to keep the breed alive and flourishing. Hopefully...

Indeed - I've had a Sedgehurst and a Winterholt Clumber. Fingers crossed for the future

My current GSP's parent's in their prime (it was the bitch's first outing after weaning the litter, hence her condition).  I imported them from Croatia back in the day after visiting some falconry friends out there and seeing the quality of their lines.

Updated me and Pip tidy up day on moors as the pheasants pinching the medicated grouse salt/feed so invited to a thinning out.  Same moors I went to with dad and grandad 40 years ago !

these days that the numbers don’t really count but the two my dog put up working were I asked most of the time then downed by me - happy days

This is my "leg warmer" Rosie. She's a 7yr old springer/collie. As much use as a gundog as a chocolate fireguard. She's fine with loud noise but seems to have a severe aversion to the gun, no matter if it's the moderated .22 or even my wee GAT air pistol, it's like she senses the projectile or something.

She's a great companion dog, very gentle and bidable, my brother in law has her littermate brother, and ignored all the advice I gave him to get on top of training asap to get the dog into line and the dogs are chalk and cheese now.... his actually put teeth on me one day and regretted it instantly, didn't bite down but I wasn't taking any chances!

Not the greatest pic but this is my cocker that I lost just over a year ago. Abbey was my first dog and first gundog. The most stubborn hard headed cocker bitch the world has produced!

She was about a year old in this pic, had to keep the lead on as she was in a public forest park, (delamont outside killyleagh for any NI members) the pic is slightly zoomed in on the camera phone it was took on in 2009 but She was sitting about 50 yards away. Notice the funny splay legged bum on the floor sitting thing going on? Because she sat like that if it was really wet in the fields she didn't like to sit at all, think the water annoyed her wee bum! She would actually park her bum on the toe of my boot to keep it off the ground
