Anyone know?

My 6 month old goldren retriever has had 3 baths this week because he loves to roll himself in anything dead, fox pea, mole holes, you name it, as long as he can stink himself up. Now I love to let him off his lead in the forrest but the morning walk makes me late for work if he does it!!!

Cheers,
Matt.

they kill foxes? I think my sisters JR wouldn't know what to do if he was actually confronted by a fox

only once, it's not something I encourage! They're incredbly brave and tenacious and it wasn't an easy battle - one of them had puncture wounds right through his leg and needed to be patched up.

They even chased the fox into the thames and swam after it. Pretty incredible really.

Before any towny whiners pipe up, there wasn't anything i could do to stop it as there was about 50 yards of thick brambles between me and them.

We have a white sheep dog, every day he rolls in badger poo, fox poo, sheep poo?!

don't know why he rolls in sheep poo, he catches them every day anyway, that's his job!
