    We don't get tornadoes... but the winds over the peaks last Sunday were clocked at 135 mph. Just stay out of the passes. Don't be like the Donner party. You'll be fine.

    That is a marvelous training method. Bill can train any dog better than we can and this way we don't have to go schlepping out into cold nasty weather. Wish I'd thought of that.

    Terry Marshall says we should all move to Texas. (But I seem to remember they had a couple of training days rained out a while ago...) Still, not much happening here with 12" of snow last Sunday.

    Lived in Dallas for 3 years and hated it. Maybe it was the "metroplex"... not TX. Now I'm reconsidering the whole thing.

    That is certainly true. Which is why, given my dog's birthday, she was very under-trained at a year and a half. (At least, that was one of the reasons.) We'd just gotten to water force and a little...
