I'm very tempted.

I'm very tempted but can I justify the cash? There's lots of other things I could and should spend my money on but it does look good doesn't it? I suppose it depends on how much a bit of posing is worth.

The company has loads of design on their website and cater for a wide range of interests and its well worth a look. I quite fancy their running hare too.

That's really good looking, isn't it ?

Could you not get it as a business expense ? after all it's really an advertising sign, isn't it ?

I could Toddy but that supposes that I'd be able to set it against any cider and pig profits. In reality, although I love what I'm doing, I'm a million miles away from turning a penny.
Toddy

Ah well, nice idea

It is rather smart though, isn't it ?

I really fancy one, our current weather vein is a bit manky looking, so perhaps I should tap our kids up for a birthday present next October. Karen and I both love hares and it would have to be a toss up between  that one and the pigs.

Cool birthday present though.

They look really well made don't they?
I've just had a look and while I couldn't find a Parson Russell in the dog section, I am tempted to wonder whether one of these on the shed roof at home would be worth the domestic.....

The jack Russell that they've got is probably the worst silhouette that they've got. Its not a patch on some of their other stuff.

The Border terrier is a bit special too.....

We lost our last Border a few weeks ago. At one time we had four of them.

My friend has one and he's a cracking little dog, appropriately named Berwick. My own dog, a Parson Russell is now fifteen and I can see age creeping up fast on her, so can empathise with your losing your border and dread the inevitable here.
