    Default tank from RNT

    if any of yall have seen RNT's hunting shows or DVDs then you've seen Deltas Shock and Awe MH QAA "Tank". he died today of GDV or twisted stomach. prayers up for the crew down in stuttgart

    I saw that on Facebook as well. The dog work was always great to watch on RNTv. I feel for Jimbo, he lost a good one.

    Thank you, Bridget. I didn't think he was that old.

    Wow, I hate that for Jimbo.

    I was unaware. Brother JimBo, if you're reading, my deepest condolences to you. I know you've been there before, as we all have been or will be. It is a sad time.

    Tank was a great retriever. I'm sorry buddy.

    jimbo said on facebook his last retrieve was a big ole mallard with jewelry on the leg. our (ark) season closed on sunday and reopens next thursday. so i'd imagine he was retrieving up till sunday before he passed yesterday

    for kicks and giggles i looked up his pedigree. HOLY COW what a lineage

    Just got a new pup in October that I named Tank in hopes he would be like the "Real Tank" from RNT. Hate to hear this sort of news.
