trading commodity

Sometimes I really despair at the people "out there". We had an email last night from someone who had bred a chihuahua, but now their little daughter was bored with it and would like a bloodhound puppy instead.......the mind boggles that a) any on can be that stupid and B) that people can treat dogs like a commodity to be traded when they are bored with it. My reply consisted of just two words....the second one being "off".
over the years we have had some really bizarre folk contact us because they wanted to buy a bloodhound puppy....but this one definitely takes the biscuit!!

Its no wonder the German Police stopped us and thought we had contraband stashed in the Trophies....they are huge!!!

1, 2, 3, 4? How many bloodhound puppies?

Well a positive scan today showed that Logic is in pup and by the looks of it she is expecting a nestful!!
So our plans for the BZH training are on hold now until the new year.
Last night Tennants favourite girlfriend "Zaba" came to play......this was one of the few moments when they actually sat still!!

let sleeping pigs lie

well Logics training for her BZH hunting test is going quite well....I even managed to locate some Wild Boar urine when I made a short visit to Moravia last will be very helpful for her to learn to track the boar scent....something we are a bit short of in Devon!!
Last week saw me working back in CZ again....near the Polish border, and the nature of the work was such that if I managed to get 3 hours sleep a night, i was lucky! On my return I just wanted to crash out on the sofa...but someone (ie Tennant) decided that if mummy was on the sofa then he wanted to be there too! Since getting home the red stags are rutting and the roaring outside the bedroom windows all night is almost it looks like a few more sleepless nights yet!
