Re: Sad Day

I know that I do not post much here, basically because I am new to raising and trying to train a gundog (I have had other breeds before), and though you may not know it I read just about every post made, and have found so much great information. That probably puts me as a bit of a lurker, but even s...

Sad Day

My dog died today. Since I usually talked to him about painful things I am feeling very empty tonight. He was going to be only a year old at the month. He had so much promise... He was so loving, good with the family, and a great friend.

I grew up on them and love bass. It is a very clean tasting fish. My favorite way to eat is broiled fillets with butter and a dash of lemon juice.

Among other things I keep a WWII folding trenching shovel. It is small, but super stout. It can pound through frost, dig out the tires, can split wood with the sharpened edge, and bury any evidence.
