    fastpup,

    I'm new to this thread, but have been following it and I'd say your take on the facts is accurate.

    I've heard this too. I can't say I'd totally discount the idea either. However, I tend to have spring litters (the last three all born in May), so hunting the mama while pregnant hasn't been an...

    Dave,

    A good analysis of the discussion. Regarding marketing to impatient Americans who want instant gratification, perhaps I should market my Doggy-Bee-Good pills made from the distilled nectar...

    Don't know whether to address Darrin or Troy!?!

    My reply is that it depends on your priorities. If the priority is a large litter of puppies I'd leave her in the comforts of home. If you'd...

    RTF'ers,

    I'm looking for input on accessories for holding guns, equipment, and dogs. I finally had to replace my old 2002 Yukon XL (264,000 miles) with a 2014 Yukon XL and I'm looking to outfit...

    jrrichar,

    On what basis do you claim to know that the statement emboldened above is accurate? Conventional wisdom is often wrong. "Healthy whole grains" is very possibly an oxymoron, at least...

    Sharon,

    Labs that point aren't "Pointers" any more than pointers that retrieve are "Retrievers". You use the ability of the pointer to cover ground to illustrate that point. Might I add...

    Newf,

    If I were you I'd be getting her to the ophthalmologist's for a check-up just to be safe. The few $'s it would cost would be worth the peace of mind.

    I understand. It's just that the three Hillman videos deal with "Hold" in general, not just cigaring. I thought you might find his insights useful.
