Go on.  I'll sneak these in here under the excuse that they are working dogs, which help to control the rats and rabbits at Wimpole estate.

These belong to my friend Simon, the forester there.

They are Jagdterriers, the German hunt terrier, and these arrived earlier this month.
For a bit more about them and their breed, you can explore Simon's blog here

They are quite nice little dogs, as hunting dogs go. Just don't get between one and the rabbit it has just caught !

Have never heard of that breed before. Sounds like a good working dog.

Pets shouldn't be dismissed as only carbon footprinters as they can be very important for peoples' mental health. Mine/ours (technically working dogs) are currently driving me insane. 2 is fine, 3 has a pack mentality with everyone wanting to be top dog and barking at anything that moves. With only 100ish sheep we don't really have enough work for one sheepdog. Anyway, here's my boy - a good cattle dog, full marks for enthusiasm with sheep but not much for technical merit. He's a Welsh Collie.Working dogs P1000210

Yes I've heard that too - 'fraid dog ownership does nothing for mine! Ours is a working breed (as many are originally), but kept as a pet, and if you so much as mentioned it the 'w' word to her, she would say Oh I couldn't possibly.....

What an extremely handsome Welsh Collie! I live in a 3-dog household and know what you mean about pack mentality - though the 'old lady' being 16+, deaf, short-sighted and occasionally gaga (or is that me?!) doesn't do pack stuff any more.
