Re: vets waiting room

Last time i was at the vet, we had a little black three legged dog with dominance issues. so i just looked the other way, and happened to drop both of my dogs leashes at the same time. Have you ever seen a three legged dog run on sealed concrete? Hilarious. the uptight lady did not appreciate it how...

Last night my dog ran through a barbed wire fence. He ended up puncturing his penis area, I say area because i am not sure if it just got the skin or made it all the way through. It bled bad for about a minute then stopped. We rinsed him off and put some antiseptic cream on him last night and this m...

Re: Anybody know about used trucks?

problem with cummins is the tranny. Dont get me wrong i used to drive a 99 cummins but was manual. Now if you wanna spend some cash stick a allison in a dodge, that is the way to go. Or i guess you could drop a cummins in your chev.

Re: Anybody know about used trucks?

Where are all the duramax fans. Our duramax's tow anything and everything we put behind them, and get better mileage than dodge or ford. Plus, the dogs love leather heated seats in the winter. You cant go wrong with an allison tranny either.

Re: Dog Whines while swimming

I have a yellow lab who Whistles out his nose almost constantly. It gets alot louder when he is swimming. He also does it in the duck blind, so now i get to lean on him when ducks are coming. Usually people get a good laugh out of it.

Re: introducing dog to water (new member)

k9luke is on the right track. We never pushed our dogs to swim. Just take him out with other dogs that love water, and soon he will jump in so that he can play too. Then again I have labs. So it might be different.

Re: My dog broke 2 incisives at the trainer ! what should I Do ?

Ask him if he will pay half the bill. If he says no and gets mad just leave and never come back. If he agrees, then pay the full bill and bring your dog back becuase he is obviouslly a good guy.

Re: Stomach issue

They are testing him for cancer, and any toxins. I just saw him about ten minutes ago and he is actually up and walking. Drugged up but still walking wagged his tail a little bit to. There was no torsion, just the walls of his stomach were swollen.

Re: what kind of dog should i get?

It is not that i dont love labs. And i do have a dynamite pup that i just picked up, he is out of Tiger mountain. I just want a change of scenery. I will always have atleast one lab. They make the duckblind funny and cold days in the phesant field somewhat less miserable.

first you hit them with dawn dish soap.. get it deep down to their skin, let the soap sit on them for fifteen minutes then rinse and repeat. The big key to most of this is how long you let it sit, its called dwell time. You have to give the soap long enough to break down the oil protien mixture that...

This is what the guy who I bought my Pup from told me about using a shock collar.


Unless he is screwing a deer, dont shock him. Atleast till he is big enough to reach.
