    I had my 65th birthday last month, with a year to go before I get my state pension, anyway I went to work last Thursday and just got the sudden mad urge to retire early,so I just fecked off home at 10am and phoned my depot, and told them to send someone to collect my van cos I think you are nowt but a bunch of cnuts and I'm not coming back, It was the happiest day of my life.

    Well, that'll be a piece of cake Dave. There are 1000's of unwanted dogs looking for a loving home.

    I'm going to start looking tomorrow, the only problem is, if I go to to a rescue centre I'll want to take all of them home.

    I had the same issue when I went to the cats rescue place. But I took the 2 friendliest cats and they are absolutely awesome and I love them to bits.

    Set a strict criteria & attempt to stick to it mate.

    Age
    Sex
    Breed
    Size
    etc etc

    Oh, & don't take my Mrs with you! We went looking for a Newfoundland (her idea not mine) & came home with an EBT/Staffie cross.
    Very similar I guess? A leg in each corner, tail at the back & a head at the front :kissing:

    That was Lilly & it was nearly 13yrs ago. I have no regrets but I now understand that we were gonna come home with something that day whether I liked it or not?!? o_O

    I'm thinking small but sturdy, probably a terrier.

    That was my plan five years ago Graham, to retire at 60 , hope you have better luck than me mate, you are better off to keep working than to finish work and struggle to pay the bills.

    Next Thursday I will be celebrating the fourth anniversary of my retirement.:eek:

    Apparently I will be spending the day mostly house/flat huntingo_O. Let the good times roll!!:rolleyes:

    Retirement means waking up in the morning and having no real idea what day it is:confused:. And as you don't have to get up and go to work does it really matter anyway?:D

    A small terrier like a Jack Russell? Or would you consider a giant furry dumb arse? Aka an English Bull Terrier.
    My Mrs is a kinda "advisor" for want of a better word for a rescue centre down here. They have a rare old selection of dogs needing forever homes.
    Including everything from a Bull Mastiff/boxer cross to Chihuahuas.

    BTW... EBT's = free takeaways :yum
    I lost count of the amount of delivery drivers that dropped our food & legged it
    when we had Dozer. If only they knew the real Dozer? :cool:

    I’ve just had enough of it mate :(
    I’ve got a forces pension that starts aged 60 :)
    It’s not brilliant but it should be enough to see me through until my state pension starts at 67:confused:
    Here’s hoping o_O

    I know how you feel, unfortunately for me I've still got 12 years to go :sob: ...unless there is some sort of miracle with the business I'm involved in.

    Patterdales are my favourites, lovable but utterly ferocious when threatened, I've had 3 of them so I would like another if I can find a rescue one.
