    Not quite as grand as some already posted, but any with my Nala (who has CCL tears in both knees) is a good one to me. ;-)

    I like the DU fresca chili recipe (in the DU cook book), but with modifications.

    I slow cook the goose cubes in apple juice and 2-3 garlic cloves until tender. Then I follow the standard recipe...

    Even given my prior post, I wouldn't argue too much against your position.

    One thing for me is precisely what you pointed out: the nose is the thing with dogs. I agree. It’s their strongest...

    The environment selects for fitness, and we humans are part of the environment that "selects". You tell me. ;-)

    I won't prescribe a specific course of action, but I can say from prior experience that my lab Nala had the light bulb go off while upland hunting pheasants at a hunting preserve. In fact, after the...

    Thanks to Col for the informative post.

    Seems to me there's more - slightly more - of an emphasis on upland work and related manners than water work.

    I agree that US line manners (and field)...

    "Rio! Come home!"

    Sorry for the loss, Abby. I hope and pray it is a temporary disconnect and that she's with you soon.

    Why one would not use a crate is beyond me.

    Crates offer at least three important advantages:

    1) It is a spot of their own that they will keep clean (this is a huge variable when potty...

    IMHO start out positive with some treats to teach the task, then bring in the hell stick to reinforce the learned task.

    Extending this idea, get unfrozen birds. Mix in marks with birds into your daily routine.

    I too have the same general impression: dog is bored. Get him on unfrozen bird marks and shot flyers too....

    Ed Zackery!

    When they have more time to commit and comment they will; in the meantime, most of them are making a living.

    Someone posted on here a year or two ago that you can't expect people to know what an ordinary day's hunt looks like when they don't know what an ordinary day is.

    LMAO - Classic!

    I'll reinforce the idea that not all dogs are gaga over birds at first exposure. My lab took 4 tries to finally get her interested. And she's a bird nut when we are hunting or training.

    Michigan's new law regarding fireworks put into place last year has really increased the noise factor in my city. I hate it!

    I'm pretty sure I can shoot to kill if I perceive immediate bodily injury while they are on my property. ;-)

    I can claim dementia or some such thing if all else fails. LOL

    On second thought, what you wrote about seems a little creepy. LOL :p
