After a very tough day yesterday when we got a solitary rabbit for our troubles was back out today with my old man for help and had a superb day today with 20 extremely healthy and large rabbits today. Young Frank improves with every trip out and is fast becoming a top ferreting dog. #whippet#workingdog#pestcontrol#lurcher#countryside#ferret#ferreting
When my son was six he became the proud owner of a pair of ferrets. He had been mad about them for a couple of years and with help he looked after them. A few years ago he no longer needed us to help. Last summer one died of cancer and this morning, the day before his final trip to the vet, Scratch failed to awaken.
I have been at a show all day and got the call as I was setting up. Pulling up next to the empty hutch put a lump in my throat.
Thomas is 13 now. He is heartbroken, and I now how he feels. Never thought it, but I became very attached to this little lad.
