Yep, you need cell phone numbers on the id tag. Twice while out searching for Blue we got a call on the cell phone and were able to race over to pick him up. It makes for a pretty quick pickup!

Ok, one again you posted some great pics. Now I have a question for you, seems like about 75% of Bernie's pictures are of him digging in the dirt...do you actually have any lawn left anywhere?

Karen has given you some awesome advise. I'm sure that initially it will be some work, but I'm sure Abby will turn out to be a fine companion. You really need to heed her advise and have this dog checked out by a vet. Just this week I met a woman at a dogpark who took in a Dobie who "wasn't housebro...

Hey thanks for the pics, keep sending more. Here in Florida we are jealous of those wide open spaces, maybe its time to think about a move.

Speaking of honoring, when we take to dogs out to the park and one goes on point, the other dog appears to be backing it, but in actual fact, I've noticed the second dog is not really watching dog no# one, but pointing the prey, although it looks correct, I thought dog no #2 was supposed to be watch...

Thanks Karen, I've definatly bookmarked that page. I liked the section on teaching the dog to come as we certainly have some work to do in that area.

While I'm definatly concerned about the bird chomping, both the dogs did fine with shotguns. Blue flinched slightly a couple of times, but the other had no concern at all. I was pretty amazed. I was also amazed that neither one seemed to notice the horses. I thought for sure they'd react somehow. I ...

Very good point about having to dogs carry around the dummy and having them follow me with it if they will. One of my dogs I'm pretty sure is not what you'd call having a "soft mouth". I forgot to mention that he picked up one of the birds he was pointing at the "fund day" and had too much fun with ...

Ok, thanks for the tips. Looks like we will be off to buy some scent for the boys first of all since the wings aren't too hot of an item. Somehow, I don't see myself keeping birds, so perhaps we will just try another hunt test and take it from there. I'm quite sure putting a JH on them will be a pie...

How do I teach my dog to find birds

Last year we took both our dogs to the 'fun day' hunt test. Both the dogs did pretty well and found and pointed at least three birds. I was pretty proud of them since I've never done this before and the dogs have never had any training. Seemed like they were just natural hunters. This year my friend...

My vet had my cat on one capsule a day of CranActon (given three times per day). Meaning I had to break open a capsule and diveide it into three parts and make her take it. Not an easy task, what I did was divide it up and mix it in water and give it to her in an eye dropper. She was a ten pound cat...

Both Blue and Rolo are on the larger side of the standard, each weighing in at 48 lbs of muscle. But to give you an idea of how Bernie might grow, we got Rolo on his 1st birthday and he weighed 42 lbs and was about an inch shorter than Blue. By the time he was about two years old he weighed 48 lbs a...

We got our "assertive" cat from someone we knew. The mother cat was not a friendly cat, but not near as bad as our cat turned out to be. Our cat definatly went beyond the hissing stage. She was allowed outdoors but always stayed in the yard so there was not danger to people passing by. When my mothe...

Hope Jen is feeling better, what a bummer. Truth be told I had a cat who absolutely hated anyone but our family. We could not have company in our house with that cat. Before anyone could come in we'd have to lock her in the bedroom. When she was younger we'd try to leave her out when someone came ov...

Barb, did you ever have the blood tests done where its sent to the lab and then off to have the custom vitamins made. Just curious as I was wondering about the cost of this. One of my dog's who we rescued about three years ago was diagonosed with hemangioparacytoma. We found lumps on him and had the...
