    Terry, if I had to run the marks too, there would need to be instructions on how to use the collar as an impromptu defibrillator. Or I'd have to teach Porter how to sit on the tailgate and drink...

    Went to the back of the cabinet, dusted off the bottle, poured a glass of the good stuff, raised a glass and said a few words for Glen. Thoughts and prayers are with his wife, over his passing.

    I guess I would be one of these (although I don't exactly scream it). I've got a 5-month old pup now, and I've had an 8' rope on him most of the time when he's running around outside (and sometimes...
