    Bastard Wirehair

    That dog of mine, there was a bird in the glasshouse this arvo, next thing I hear is breaking glass, he went straight through the lower pane, the top pane came down as well, smashed everywhere, blood everywhere.
    Just picked him back up from the vet, $338.00 and some change later, he's stitched up, bandaged up, asleep, and I've got a glasshouse to fix.
    Thats fucked his xmas holiday jaunts. And mine with him

    ps, believe it or not he got the starling.

    Yes he is, fathered, and he out of one of Jason's, not Sweep, I'll look it up if you wish.
    Apart for the fact that he's as mad as a box full of cats he's not bad at all, keen hunter, quick to learn and eager to please. Head strong though but that's expected.
    He's just coming three and has settled alot in the last 6-9mths.
    But every now and then pulls one.

    Free Glass cover on the house/contents?

    Mums visla caught one of her finches that got outside and brought it back to her almost unharmed, bung leg for a couple of days then happy as back in the cage

    Boy do I like a birdy dog... So glad to hear that he will be alright, Jakewire. Glass is always a worry!!

    That's the prey drive of a wirehair, mine had never seen a pig before, but the first mob we got on to he chased one down and caught it by the back of the neck within a couple of hundred metres. Not the biggest of pigs but pretty impressive. He was Sweeps sire.

    I think he is out of a sister to mine. Mines not by a drahthaar, and as a consequent doesn't seem to be so driven.

    Happy new year.
