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.

    • Been out on a few solo adventures lately. Finding some slab crappies mostly. Got into a mix of gills and slabs today! Fish have been hit and miss this ice season locally but if your willing to put the work in you can find em. Finding fish in that 20-30 fow area depending on the weather. Crappies range from 12-14" and the gill is 10". Most fish caught on plastic baits, a few on waxies. It's been a blast lately! Hopefully my luck keeps up! Have a look!! 
    • Very good-think for yourself.  Trust-to a degree-your gut.  Hemingway always bragged about his buhlsnick sniffer and most of the press people in my life have had excellent  sniffers. But you HAVE to believe in some media efforts simply because there is no value to them of lying about some things and frankly I doubt that many do with any regularity. As far as you 'why I have no idea" regarding political parties and those "invested" in them it is because they BELIEVE certain causes or philosophy's are what they agree with.  Nothing wrong with that. Communists fervently believe (or did) that their way was the best.  Libertarians the same and of course Republicans and Democrats espouse the basic beliefs of their party. There is nothing wrong with any of the PARTIES.....it is the PEOPLE who end up at the top of them. I have learned that one of the reasons for that is simple:   too many truly good and decent people pf talent and ability cannot bring themselves to run for office. It has become degrading and the reason is simple.....because the public trashes and bashes all politicians as "corrupt" and the politicians who ARE corrupt deter others from seeking office. We have some pretty sleazy people running this country and it is sad. No,   I do not know the answer. It is too late.
    • The great part is he doesn't own a house yet down here so if the plan is in-home daycare, he can look for a house that will suit his needs.   One thing I would do different if I were going to up and move but I had to stay around the metro area, I would move to the far north suburbs instead of the far south suburbs where I am now. I hate having to go through the cities in order to go up north for the weekend camping or fishing.
    • You should make us all some ribs so we can taste it. 
    • I like a lot of the new Shell's flavors that they have now but I got burnt out on regular Shell's back in college because I had 3 roommates that were all from New Ulm and they could buy returnable bottle cases really cheap. How ever many cases could stack in our apartment from floor to ceiling is how many we would go through each week.
    • The drawer rails you just want ones with "detent" on them. I think ours are set to 10lbs.   Here are pics for the doors.
    • You might want to try, if you haven't already, the app WAZE on your phone.   real time traffic and suggested alternative routes.  
    • I had a guy do that also on Sat in N.D. Pulled in with a Ford F350 and a big Ice Castle and started his  2000 watt All-Pro generator and set it in front of his pickup about 40 ft and went and got in his house. I went and asked him if he want to plug into my Honda 2000 so I didnt have to listen to its all afternoon.   But when I left we picked up and got everything ready. He never came out and I could see him looking out the window so I just unplugged his cord and picked up my generator and left. Never came out to thank me. But the guy next to me thanked me so he wouldnt have to listen to it.
    • Agree on both Stall & Stewart as huge bonuses....but I'm not going to give Fletch credit...it's all on those 2 players that they resurrected their game with new found youth.  It was a "wing & a prayer" from Fletch's standpoint....he had to do something, threw his darts on the wall and they stuck at Stall and Stewart and fortunately for Fletch it has worked out...and both were cheap signings....
