    Dog training is like farming...lots of expenses and depreciation of equipment....it has a way of having no profit at the end of the year.

    I don't have a competitive dog right now. Buried my FT dog two months ago, died of bloat. Happened one of the few times I didn't wet his food. Went out in the backyard the next morning and he was stone dead with a bloated midsection. Won't have another until I retire which will be in the next couple of years. Right now, I'll just enjoy my old yellow female meat dog.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Nothing easy about losing a dog.

    I would like to invite you to come to the Houston area hunting anyway. You and I have a lot of common ground, so I know we can be cival in a duck blind.

    Franco, I would take Mike up on this, he's a pretty good guy. Once he was coming to Red River to judge. I called him up and told him that I unexpectedly found myself in a dry county and he brought me a 24 box of Shiner! Still thankful for you bailing me out on that one!

    You must start lots of arguments ,because you have a propensity for throwing out comments that you cant back up...

    would you like that list alphabetically or listed by income level

    I'll buy my own steaks (dont eat red meat anymore)

    You don't suppose it's because they primarily believe in smaller government, lower taxes, fewer regulations, less gun control, etc., etc., etc.???

    Or better yet, they may just believe the Democrat party that they MAY at one time been a member of, figured out it had turned into a party of Socialists, Marxists, special interest groups they wanted no part of?

    Come to think of it...why do you cling to a party that contradicts your beliefs? Or is that sig line just a form of hypocrisy? You put up quotes from the bible, while supporting a Democrat party that believe in and legislates for: Abortion in all forms...same sex marriage..all types of homosexuality, and providing those special interests equality. And yet we are supposed to buy into your belief in scripture? Wouldn't call that conflicted would you?

    Lets put it this way if a man is training dog as his only sourse of income and is paying federal income tax....have them call me, I can help them.

    What is your number because the pro I train with sure could use some help. The IRS did not think she was paying enough and sent the boys to her house to do a little talking.

    Sounds good, I'll be in touch. Just this morning I booked a Specklebelly hunt with James Meyers of Riceland Game Calls. He has blinds in the Lake Charles area and Port Arthur area, kind of half way between H Town and Lafayette.
