  1. Just before you think I'm defending the owners...I'm not! It's classic behaviour of many dog owners who don't research the breed traits prior to purchase, then act all surprised when their dog actually displays those traits. Shih Tzu''s, Lhassa's etc are all Temple Dog breeds, therefore it;s in their DNA to bark and scream. They were deigned as an 'early warning system'. Yet we still have owners (and their long suffering neighbours), surprised by this outcome. Fuckwittery exists everywhere!! Just stick to the routine of waking your neighbours up every time their dog wakes you. I guess it won't take them long to get the message.
  2. Different legal system up here in Scotland. You can be done for stealing a dog but not a cat. Madness I know!! Hope you get your problem sorted out and you get your cat back.
  3. I went through similar back in 2012. I has a lovely big ginger tom who was bottle fed as a kitten, arrived here and was instantly 'adopted' by my then terrier. She thought he was a pup and used to carry him about and clean him. They were really close and my cat thought he was a dog. Really lovely, cat. Easy going and very affectionate. I knew he used to visit an old dear in the next street with a coal fire, she loved his company for a few hours but never fed him. Roll up the mental case one street down who took a liking to him. She basically stole him...although legally speaking you can't steal a cat.. Long story short, the SSPCA were involved after I got him back after being missing for 4 months. She made a claim to them that I abused him. Every time I let him out he'd wander back there (despite the SSCPCA expressly telling her to lock her cat flap - he was the only one she 'had' at the time) I had to have a police escort with me every time I went round to collect him from the nutters house 'for my safety'. In the end I just have to give up and let him go there. He used to visit my garden from time to time, however as time elapsed he totally changed in character. Not seen him in over 2 years now so suspect he's no longer with us. He'd be coming up 17 years old in a few months. It still makes my blood boil and I'd be here all night/break the internet, typing the whole story.
  4. Of interest to anyone https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/920825818369787/
  5. Sorry folks , no pics available on my laptop. My biggest regret is my Pug 205 Gti, 1.6. No choice in that one, it got written off after being T boned by some fuck wit. Those that I sold that I regret, my E plate Nissan Sylvia Turbo...loved that car. And for sheer cheap fun my Citroen AX Gt greenline. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!
  6. It's less than 5 mins in,,,,but just re watching A fish Called Wanda......the ultimate AS wagon has already featured, a beige bASe spec Metro, lol. Nice stack headlight Merc in the background too. Right chaps/chapesses, I'm heading back to the movie...over and out!👍 Edited to add. Sorry for getting exited at watching 80's chod and sharing the opportunity with others. I forgot my place on this forum and must go back to being a non car troll as instructed by one serial poster on here.
  7. Majorly grumpy today. Slipped in the shower this morning and went down with a bloody awful clatter. No major injuries (was lucky not to break an arm ) but bruised and aching. Worst part is that I took out two of the 600 x 400 tiles that are no longer available and new bathroom not even 5 years old. Och, yet another expense to deal with when/if I ever get back to work. Lovely day here so enjoyed my daily allotted walk with the dogs that cheered me up. However, that bubble was burst as I went to Lidl to do my shop on the way home. Was standing on the 2m lines waiting to pay for my shop and had to deal with some cockwomble just saunter past 6" in front of me between the lines!! I said 'hey man, 2m please' and got the reply 'fuck off!' Some young Asian lad...hope he gets the fucking thing and dies gasping for air....he's a waste of the bloody stuff already if that's his attitude at present.
  8. What a lovely car Six Cylinder!! Ach, why not,! Number 47 please. Was going for 7 but someone beat me too it! Thanks for introducing a lovely but of fun in trying times!
  9. Good luck with that sale!! It's an only slightly modded Saab 9-3 estate. Take 4k off that price and you might be getting there.
  10. Never met the man, however my heart felt sympathies to Reb on the loss of his father in tragic circumstances. I lost my old man couple of months ago...it's never easy. Stay strong Reb!
  11. Had a C70 T5 in Kingfisher Blue back in the day! Loved it, Great to drive, never gave me much bother- comfiest seats ever and finished in cream half leather/half alcantara! Sadly it got nicked by a bunch of dodgy Polish guys....but that's 12 years ago now.
  12. I currently drive an 07 one.....they're still not smoll, trust me! I'm actually going to watch this one, older than mine but lower miles and manual. My geartronic box is 'flairing' worst outcome a new valve body, but I suspect it needs complete replacement of engine mounts and some more turbo hoses. I've chucked £1500 at mine in the last two months and I'm getting sick of it's neediness! Other than that I 'kind' of like mine - of that make's any sense? When behaving it's a comfy, secure place to be!
  13. £900 for a clutch on the manual.
  14. A mate had a Granada estate in the same colour. Never seen this colour since!
  15. I have a reserve met bid on this. at present. I'm not likely to win it, but if I do i'll roffle it on here. I'd get the fun of driving it home and some shiter get's a dream car for a few quid😅 We all m ight need a bit of fun* whilst self isolating!!!
  16. Springer


    Well bought there sir!!
  17. I've never* done that!😇
  18. No pics soz, but one of a very, very early brood of Crested Tit's had a lucky escape this afternoon. I wondered what my almost 13yr old Border Terrier was sniffing around on the track when out walking her and the springer earlier, it was the young bird. I'm amazed she didn't have it down her throat! Even a few months ago she was still taking rats out. The wee bird just flew up to the nearest branch and sat looking at us. Whether it survives this early in the year is another matter entirely!
  19. Isn't this a case of FFS just scrap it?? I admire the will to save this, but glass, paint and fuck knows what else....what is the point really? ?
  20. I got as far as Aberdeen...but did do that when I was 18, lol.
  21. Just twigged where that pic was taken! I grew up there (not on the edge of the cliff obvs, lol)
  22. I'd just be worried if that family had a slight dislike for me!!
  23. That's a winner for me - great colour combo and well done on all your efforts!
