X2. Good luck Teger....

 

Spent the last 4 days grouse hunting up in the Mn. Arrowhead and when I was getting ready to go in the woods at one spot this guy came along training his sled dogs with a dead head ATV, hopefully if you click on it will come up larger but it still isn't the best picture. I better keep my day time job....

 

 

Too many people today (IMO) ride ATV's grouse hunting and don't even use a dog let along walk. That picture I took is the best use of a dead ATV I have seen yet.

 

Taking a break and sharing some water with the dog:

 

 

Just got back and we are headed back up Friday for another week. The dog is getting old but has no quit in him, he is ready to get back in the woods chasing birds where he belongs. Can't say as I blame him.

Cool pics. Enjoy your ability to hunt while you can.

 

The HSUS is at it again. CA Dept of Fish and Game is changing it's name to CA Dept of Fish and Wildlife or CAL WILD for short.

I used to hunt wild boar in Fort Hunter Liggett when I was stationed in Alameda and down in San Diego. I just had to take the poll on the link and turns out I'm in the 88% group which reads - Seriously? This politically correct nonsense reflects precisely what's wrong with California.  Yeah I've figured for awhile now that it is only a matter of time before the hunting heritage is gone, but hopefully not in my lifetime. Or my sons, but....

 

Mn. just started allowing wolf hunting this year and it is about time. I have nothing against them but they are getting out of control and have lost all fear of humans here. When a pack starts howling and they do it often the Toller doesn't know better and he wants to take off and go join them, something primitive in him pulls him to the sound of the pack. It is one of the few times I have to stand on the e-collar with him. And they would kill him in a heartbeat, most of us don't put bells on the dogs anymore as it just announces the dinner bell for the wolves.The HSUS has spent a fair amount of money putting billboards up trying to stop the wolf hunting. Ironic as they are anything but Humane.

I hope hunting isnt gone in my lifetime. The only thing i enjoy more than a long walk or a long sit in the woods is.... I cant think of anything I enjoy more. My dogs love it too.

here's something I read in the local news today...
Quote:
MANILA, Philippines - Kabang, the hero dog that saved the lives of two girls in Zamboanga last December, left last night for the University of California Davis (UC Davis) Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital to undergo maxillofacial surgery.

Team Kabang spokesperson Mona Consunji of the Animal Welfare Coalition (AWC) said the hero dog boarded Philippine Airlines flight PR 102 scheduled to leave at 10 p.m., accompanied by veterinarian Anton Mari Lim.

Kabang, an aspin (stray dog), saved two girls from being hit by a motorcycle, resulting in injuries to her upper jaw, nose and face.

Prior to her departure, a motorcade was held for Kabang from Makati, where she was presented in a press conference, to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2.

In Los Angeles, Lim and Kabang will be welcomed by Team Kabang-USA led by Karen Kenngott of the AWC-USA, Michael Foley of the Global Animal Transport (GAT) and representatives of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).

Hero dog Kabang arrived in California on Tuesday and was met by Team Kabang USA's Karen Kenngott and Mike Foley, who helped raise funds for Kabang's surgery, said to cost $20,000. The dog saved two children from a speeding motorcycle in Zamboanga last December but lost its snout and upper jaw in the collision.

My greyhound Sadie. She's five years old and we've had her for about six months. She's a great dog. Content to sleep most of the day, but gets super excited when I pull the leash out for a walk. She also loves to greet me in the morning by running in circles and grabbing and shaking every toy she can get her jaws on.

Not the most obedient dog, but we're still working on that. At least she hasn't tried to eat the cats.

Sadie looks cool. I love when the dogs get so excited they just gotta bring you a toy.

My greyhound is very food oriented. I know a lot of greyhound people use the combination of food and clicker training for their dogs. Mine would get so excited that he'd run through the whole list of stuff he knew how to do. Took him awhile before we could actually get him to slow down and do just the thing we wanted.

Now that the weather is cooling down, mine has decided that it's walk season again. He barely wanted to go out during the summer, but now he wants at least a mile a day.

Some pics of the whole dog family this am.

Bruno the english bulldog getting ready to attack Tula the standard poodle. He never catches her unless she lets him.

Duke, the elder statesman of the group. I am afraid this Brittany has pointed his last bird.

Couldnt get the puppy, Tink and the 5 year old Zeke to stay still. Brittanys just love to move!

Sounds like my dog. She loves food. Half the time if you say "treats" or "dogfood" her ears perk up and she runs to the kitchen where we keep her treats and food. We've been doing the clicker training and it seems to be working well. It just takes a lot of repetitions before she will seem to learn a behavior.

She is really not a fan of hot weather. Thankfully for her it doesn't get too hot here so she can go walk most days in the summer in the middle of the day. She doesn't seem to mind the cold, though. Although it never really gets that cold here, a lot of the other greyhound people are bundling their dogs up in jackets and sweaters. Sadie just keeps trying to shake it off and looks grumpy till we take it off.

I have a little fleece and one heavier quilted Gortex type jacket. He gets the fleece when it's 40 or so, and the heavier one once it gets really cold/snowing/we'll be out for awhile. He hates anything but fresh snow, something about the crunchy surface. Won't even walk on it, which is bad news.
