Our Rescue Lurcher and Rottweiler on Horden Beach, County Durham

This morning we headed to one of our locals beaches.
We often go to the Easington Colliery end of Horden Beach because there is a nice long area of sand.
Barley the Lurcher has enjoyed many a run on this part of Horden Beach, but this morning it was the first time for Porter the Rottweiler. Both dogs had a good run, and enjoyed venturing into the sea. Rather them than me!

Outhwaite Rope Gun Dog Lead with Trigger Hook

A few days ago I purchased two Outhwaite Rope Gun Dog Leads from Amazon.
I already own the exact same lead, which I’ve been using every day for about 18 months, it’s super-strong, comfortable to hold, and it is excellent quality.
The two new dog leads arrived quickly, but some fuckwit from Capital Stores, the supplier, had let one of the leads ship to us without the rubber binding to protect the rope weave. In fact, it should have never left the factory.
I could not be bothered with the time and effort it would take to send the incomplete dog lead back to be replaced, so I’ve fixed it with some duck tape.
Duck tap DIY aside, I am happy with my purchase, and am sure the two new dog leads will last a long time.
