Hi all, just changing from a Focus 1.8Tdci, which is too small to tow my caravan.

 

Hoping to upgrade to a Mondeo 2.0 Tdci 130 (6 speed). Previously had a 97 diesel Escort (not a common rail diesel, but with an injector pump.

 

Also had a few Freelanders, but too expensive to run and they break often.

 

Huge dog fan (as you can see from my screen name).

Sorry to hear that, any plans to get another companion?

Not personally, far far too painful to lose such a close companion.

 

I do, however, do short term fostering....... :)

I'd find it harder giving them back after having them for a short while.

Have three dogs at present, two workers and one shirker.

They are literally my life and my career rolled into furry packages.

I don't mind handing over to a forever home after a short foster. The  bond doesn't seem to be so strong :)

My dogs and I have a very strong bond, I trust my working dogs with my life.
They in turn enjoy their work and listen to only me and my wife, my Mali is the most fiercely loyal dog I've ever handled.
