Though I'd never heard of a Sprocker Spaniel before. Thank you, I've learned something new today.

Completely new to me, as well! :thumbsup:

Must be a cross between a Springer and a Cocker then?

Cheers, Timmo

I’d forgotten the joys of puppyhood, been up since 4:30 with the little sprocker :veryangry:

For sale, or will swap for a 500 series Shinkansen :D :no:

Also arrived yesterday, and the reason for my intermodals still being in the box, is Molly.

8 weeks old yesterday, a female Sprocker Spaniel who is our latest little beauty :heart2:

 :heart2: :heart2: :heart2:

Wonderful, Steve, Molly is a little stunner.

All best wishes.

John

Steve, your joys are just beginning. In her first year, our Tilly chewed up a couple of remotes, created some pretty deep pits in the back yard, and wrecked a seat belt in my car that cost me $350 to replace. She's lucky to be alive, but dogs are worth the agro. Jess and Kyla, two previous dogs of ours, wreaked similar damage in their first year. You only have 9 months to go.

Quote fro weave: -
"You might know this but I've been told by vets and many other dog people that one should only throw/give absolutely knackered tennis balls to dogs. New or slightly new ones are an absolute disaster for their teeth."

and

I had not heard that tennis balls were bad for dogs, Weave. Consulting Dr Google, it seems that the danger lies in their propensity to chew them causing either worn down teeth or a choking hazard.
Webbo

We have to avoid tennis balls altogether, new or old, as Dolly our 4 year old "Chessie" has twice swallowed half tennis balls but luckily brought them back up after a few days.
She now plays with and chases neoprene rubber balls that are difficult to chew through.

Molly is gorgeous by the way. Lots of enjoyment ahead I predict.
She who must be obeyed says I am spending too much time on this forum. I love her dearly but what does she know?

Tomytec's 273813 Echizen Railway Type MC7000 provides a rare break from puppy duties today.

Costing only £14.39 plus postage, a real steal even if it is only a dummy unit with plastic wheels.  Tomytec do a suitable powered chassis for about £20, but for now this is just a nice display model.

Guess which weak-minded fool has been watching the real things in the news on Youtube lately :D

Latest arrival, courtesy of the Dapol special offers page, is a BR Blue Class 56.  A bargain at £70 :thumbsup:

I make no apology for the Hornby OO Gauge Peckett lurking in the background.  Turned out in the Lilleshall Company's plain black, this other new arrival is a local loco for me.  90% of my dogwalking is along the old trackbeds of the Lilleshall Company so how could I resist? 8)

Streuth, pups dun'arf take up yer spare time! :thumbsup:

But when I've been off duty, I've managed to lay the first bit of track on the branch.  From the turnout at 'X' to the weights and glue at 'Y' 8)

Tightest part of the curve is 315mm radius.

That's a brilliant photograph, Steve.

And the layout one is good too!

Many thanks.
