Angus sends hugs, snuffles and an over excited snot in the face. He thanks you for giving a fellow Goldie a loving home and offers a suck on his best raggie any time…

Seeing your pic of Angus brought floods of memories and happiness
Give Angus a big hug from us.

My sisters collie was a great companion on some big mountain walks, but he died unexpectedly at 9yo. I did a solo dash up Pen y gent on Friday and with time to contemplate on descent I really missed him. By coincidence I saw sister the next day and She mentioned it was 12 months ago since he’d gone.Posted 4 years ago

If you are thinking Greyhound then i heartily recommend you look into a Lurcher as they are great dogs.Posted 4 years ago

some great pics and love wylie prids what kind of lurcher is she? Its given me food for thought as any dog I get has to be cat friendly and good with other dogs and kids. I’ve been lucky with jess as she’s been so laid back and fitted in and is extremely good natured. I was fixed on a greyhound but am worried about their prey drive esp when out and about. So much to think about and also Mr retro is slowly coming round the idea so I don’t want him to say told you so if it goes horribly wrongPosted 4 years agomeribelmtbMember
We lost our greyhound Benny this winter and he was an amazing, gentle, Humpty, great with kids, could walk for hours or doze in a corner with equal aptitude. We would have got another but with the change in temperatures through the year and the change in lifestyle (Leeds to the Alps) we went for a Golden Retriever. Meet Rufus, who is currently breaking hearts on a UK road trip.

Dogs are ace.
This is Alfie, our Lab x Staffie (taken a few years ago)
These days he’s a bit greyer around the chops and a bit soggier round the midsection, but still just as full of beans.
We’ve lost him on a few occasions when he’s gone after deer, one time for a few days at a stretch. Very strong prey drive which we’ve never managed to overcome. He picked up a lot of terrier instincts and very little labrador.
Absolutely brilliant with our boy though, tolerates all sorts of poking/prodding without complaint.
Currently feeling very sorry for himself with a split dewclaw.Posted 4 years ago
