    My little fella, Yoda, eats like there's no tomorrow, if he reckons we don't give him enough he eats a ton of grass or half the wood off the woodplie.

    My wife wants to get a Bernese Mountain Dog. I think it might be so she can just let the dog pull her while she sits atop her throne (errhm... Electra Townie).

    Should call you stevegore! You sound like one of those English chavs with their staffie with a studded collar on it! Now we know why you have English origins and no Irish blood

    Border collies all brains and a little brawn. Staffies all brawn and little brains!

    I tried this once on rollerblades with my greyhound. Worked great on the flat, til she decided to stop for a wee, and got pulled along in quite an inelegant manner. Then we reached the top of a hill. Scared the **** out of me after 5 seconds, and I had to bail out into a diving roll on the grass at the side. Greyhounds can reach 40mph, which is faster than I typically like to go on skates.

    Love greyhounds. Used to race them in Ireland! Gentle creatures too aside from when they see small animals! Should have placed a hare at the top of the hill for you lol!

    Yes until I found out the hare was a fake one that ran on rails and I felt very betrayed.

    I have taken Yoda for a run on my MTB, but he pulls on the lead too much...and his little paws struggle to apply the V-brakes when I dive off to the side for a pee.


    Staffies are a highly intelligent and loyal breed, just like their owners.....mine loves riding in my BoB trailer.
