Let's say that you and a friend each have a litter of gundog pups, by the same sire. Your friend really wanted to keep a bitch pup, but unfortunately his litter are all dogs. Therefore you do a swap, a bitch pup from your litter for a dog from his. It seems a fair deal. If anything your friend is better off, as bitches are worth a little more (and he's got what he wants). You decide to keep the dog pup on, and, as your 10-year-old daughter is taking a keen interest you let her rear him.
One year later, you take the young dog for a day out at a local game fair, and your daughter enters him in a few simple competitions. Someone sees him, takes a fancy, and offers you a good price. You accept, and, feeling proud of your daughter for her efforts, you let her keep the money. Your friend is also at the fair, hears of the deal, and seems pleased.
(I should add that the friend is a landowner, over whose ground you have permission to shoot and to take paying clients. You pay a reasonable rent for the permission, but do not have long term security of tenure.)
A few days later, friend contacts you, clearly annoyed that you haven't offered him any of the money. A week passes before you see him again, by which time he is seriously angry, verging on abusive, and tells you that unless you pass on a cut of the proceeds of the sale of the dog you can clear off his land with immediate effect!
What do you do? Take some money off a 10-year-old girl, just to keep the peace?
This is a true scenario that I currently find myself in, although I've changed the details a bit to make it more relevant to SD members, ie, the animals in question weren't actually gundogs, and I don't take out paying clients. However, I do depend on access to that land for a fair proportion of my livelihood.
Would welcome some comments and advice on how to handle this...
(PS, the "dog" sold for approx 20 times the value of the "puppy")
