Are you a Graeme?
I've got two Springers and the male dog literally pisses himself when he hears fireworks or bird scarers. He comes from a proven gun dog breeder lineage too.took my two English Springer Spaniels to a fireworks festival once... was accused of been cruel to the dogs by some mad woman..... I knew both my dogs were not "Gun shy".
Springers, thick as fcuk, but a heart 120%!! would not own another breed, so long as they get to do springer stuff, brilliant dogs.I've got two Springers and the male dog literally pisses himself when he hears fireworks or bird scarers. He comes from a proven gun dog breeder lineage too.
The female Springer would be quite happy to blatt away on a GPMG, without wearing ear defence, because she's thick as ****.
Educational, were other dogs that were calm at the time involved?We go away to avoid the fireworks at Halloween, Bonfire night (week) and diwali. One place we stayed at was next to a Forestry Commission shooting reserve, the dog that was most terrified of fireworks took no notice after the first few shots.
Both my greyhounds of the time hated fireworks, the other one didn't seem to consider that the sound could be related to fireworks. To be fair there was a bit of woodland in the way, so the sound was slightly muffled.Educational, were other dogs that were calm at the time involved?
My mate was practising for a marathon, he said Springers die at about the 15 mile point, limp in about 20 minutes later and just collapse, totally horizontal.
Mine, 8 hour coastal walk, mostly off lead, 4 year old bitch, knackered the next day, 2 year old dog, "lets do it again".
Never have I seen the "F,k off and leave me alone on my beanbag bed for the rest of the day" look in a knackered springer bitch.
Seen just that look on BM's spaniel after Langemannshof March, 65K round Hohne Soltau range road, in the early 80's. She sprinted up and down, up and down, up and down the squad, all the way round. We did 65K, she did about 300. Had to be lifted in to the Bedford at the end. Well fecked!!Never have I seen the "F,k off and leave me alone on my beanbag bed for the rest of the day" look in a knackered springer bitch.
Amazing, shame they don't use the same system the army does.... or parallel it off for system robustness.... and cheap Sig bods on shift managing the system 24/7.Computer system has crashed at work, A&E closed and all clinics cancelled because of it the wonders of the electronic age!! Pixels good, paper bad
