    Default would you help train Sonny, in exchange for going hunting with his owner?

    As I am sure you all know OUR President and first family have a new dog, Sonny. Like Bo, a pure breed PWD. I hear that he, (President Obama) has been reading The RTF with his nsa ability and has chosen one of us to ask to help train Sonny for waterfowl hunting. In exchange for being able to hunt say half a dozen times with the President in secure Government areas that only somebody like the President could gain access to. And he is willing to let you pick the spots.
    So....... If you are the lucky RTF'er POTUS poster the President has picked. Would you say yes? And if so, as a follow up what spots would you pick?

    imagin being able to do swimby in the National Reflecting Pool?????
    having secret service bird boys???

    I would, and I have a few spots in Charleston SC that tempted me for four years when I was in school next to the navy base.

    I would train the dog and take him hunting. But Obama would never get anywhere near one of my duck blinds unless they turned the land around it into a golf course and he plunked a drive into the water!

    I have told this story before : but back when Clint was a grad student at Texas A&M, former Pres LBJ had a beagle named J.Edgar who needed some special medical attention...well of course they call their friend Cactus Pryor, who volunteers Clint to take the little bastard to the Vet school..I get to tag along and have the feller riding in my lap for the 90 minute ride from Austin to College Station, where we are met by Clint's best friend Ronny who is in Vet school..we carry the pooch into the clinic and explain to the vet who the dog is and who he belongs to, to which he replies " middle ear infection"..so they treat him for a couple of days and we bring him back to Austin, to be met by LBJ son in law Patrick Nugent and a team of Secret Service agents in black sedans...all that for a little beagle named after a cross dressing closet homosexual FBI Director
