Labs-----Molly is 1 yr old today!!!!

9 posts in this topic

Ken, Just wanted to send (try) some pictures of Molly. She has been a great dog and a joy to our family! Can't wait till this hunting season. Even my wife, who is not a "dog person" has made a 100% change about her. She calls her "pretty Molly" and even lets her jump up in our bed to say "hi" in the morning. 036.jpg034.jpg

WOW-I did it, pictures worked and added avatar!!!

Thanks Ken, she's great. About that church deal I made with my wife to get the dog-I tried. I went to her church for about 2 months and just didn't care for the style of worship.

Thanks Ralph. Another happy customer of Labs4me/us!

Thanks all. She has a nice coat, she's shedding like mad right now, have to vacuum and brush her every day. Pat, I look for you every time I drive by the park-yet to see ya. One of these day's we will meet up. Have to admit, I am not holding up to my end of the deal, working her everyday like I should be. I don't know if I'm going to bring her back to CRC for the next level of training. Got the ok from my wife, I'm just worried about ME not putting enough effort into it after she's trained. I switched professions 1 yr ago and doing more physical work. Being a half century old, I'm dragging when I get home. However, I might have more time on my hands than I care for, come the end of next month. The new branch we opened up last June isn't doing real good and our lease is up for renewal the end of next month-were all worried they will not renew it.

Once she is professionally trained, how often does she need to be "worked" to re-enforce/continue what she was taught? I need to get the lead out of my arse and just do it!

Well heck, if you're that close you might as well go another block and knock on my door!

Unfortunately I've suffered the same affliction as you have lately...too much work. I've been terrible in working Kody since I picked him up from intermediate training last March.

The biggest challenge after I picked him up was enforcing the fact that I'll pinch his ear same as the trainer. Once he understood that, he'd fetch anything I'd want him too. His obedience when he got back was great too. I carry a leash when I walk him, but I rarely use it. I've also been able to call him away from the neighbor dogs and away from deer in the back.

With the lack of training on my part, though, he's started to slip. My work should be easing up finally so I'm hoping to tighten it up over the next couple months and get back to working with him like I should. I'm too embarrassed to say how little I've worked on training him.

One thing that will help is that I just dropped him off at CRK last Friday for his 2 weeks of water work. You should have seen him when he got out of the truck...he was going NUTS. He remembered the place and he remembered all the birds he got last time. I have no doubt that he'll enjoy his time there again.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
