Here's Benji and Alfie, 2 Westies...brothers from the same mother.

Benji is 7 and Alfie is 6.

Showing no sign whatsoever of slowing down yet, and keep us on out toes constantly!

Loki, my 1 year old Collie Lab cross (maybe a bit of greyhound in there as well, she has a very long back). She likes to chase flying things and destroy plastic and rubber things. Nicest character dog I've ever had

I've got two Cavalier King Charles spaniel x Bichon Frise. They are sisters and the most good-natured dogs ever and always up for whatever you want to do.

This is Rita the rescue dog. It has been suggested that she could be a Beauceron, or perhaps rottie crossed with something. She's definitely part-idiot, and loves to crash around in the woods, chase squirrels, snooze by the campfire and follow my other half everywhere.

Many of your dogs are too small to hunt game. But I guess you have them as pets?

I'm not sure of the English names, but we have two types. One for sledge in winter 0 a bit like huskey/wolf cross breed.

Some of us also have fast big hunting dogs used for chasing bear, and similar big game. I guess they are same as big lurcher.

Thats very true Joe, but then, hunting with dogs is illegal in the UK. Also, we no longer have the large game that would really require dogs. Several of our breeds (posted up here) such as labradors and spaniels are retrieving breeds and many of the terriers were traditionally used for catching rats etc.
Indeed, you are right, most folk on here have their dogs as pets these days. My Boarder Collie, Tess, came from a working sheep farm and her parents were good welsh sheep dogs, however, she wouldn't know a sheep if it was stood in front of her. She's spoilt rotten, sleeps up in the bedroom and has her own sleeping bag when we go camping, She is getting on a bit and does feel the cold (so i tell myself, lol).

We have recently given a home to this beast:

Doggo.jpg

Part Staffie, part whippet, part Gloucester Old Spot!

Not really a bushcrafty dog; she was obviously brought up a townie. She's slowly learning that trees are hard when you run into them, sheep are not toys, and wasps do not make good snacks.

Strange how such an infuriating, ungrateful, smelly creature can get under your skin...
