    Hi, our's is ASBO Emily 5 years old, shame can't move photo from the show case to show here, but it's in there.
    Bertie looks a lovely boy, can't beat a cocker! Emily's our 4th probably our last as she's such hard work.

    Posted this picture before, but here is Jake - a failed gun dog (he likes peasants a bit too much......). His friend is Dolly who is an ex puppy farm breeding bitch who we fostered and since rehomed.
    Bertie is better looking than Jake but there's a difference between show and working dogs - daughter has a working cocker who looks only vaguely spaniel like despite the pedigree

    Excuse Dolly's prison haircut - she was in a terrible state when she came in and had to be completely clipped

    We currently have two Lhasa Ratsos as foster dogs. Horrible little things, both are quite old with health problems (probably why they were dumped in the first place) but OK if you like that sort of thing......

    We have two fostered who are neither sweet, not very gentle, nor are they well trained. Generally nice dogs but not my type.......:xwink:

    Me too - we treat them terribly......

    they have to sleep on a very hard father duvet dog bed next to the radiator, they are cruelly given pedigree chum instead of finest fillet steak and are simply never exercised or given treats......:xwink:
