I hunted with one that was crossed with an english pointer (not on purpose of course). This was the best darn non-purebred pointing hunting dog I've ever seen and he was supposedly a great farm dog too.

We have a Blue heeler that just turned three yesterday. He is a very smart dog. One thing I learned about them is that if you want to teach them anything it has to be within the first year. Not sure why. We tried to teach our dog fetch and he didn't really get it, but we never tried really hard either. But when it comes to no begging, jumping, licking, sit stay, etc. it's like it just clicked with him. Tell him something once and he gets it. Another thing is that he is very protective! Nobody will be able to get in a vehicle or house without him letting you know hes there. He won't bite but when the hair on the back of his neck stands up he does look a little mean.

Had a buddy that had one that he could tell to touch the tire and it would with its paw. He would then tell it to touch the rim and sure enough it would put its paw on the rim. That dog also liked to play fetch with itself in the house. It would carry the ball up the stairs get to the top and drop it back down for hours on end. Smart dogs, maybe too smart at times.

    •   Please feel free to elaborate and educate me.   With or without personal attacks. 
    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.  
    •   You can feel free to answer this question too if you like. 
    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.    
    •   22 hours ago, Big Dave2 said: As a Christian you would rather see human beings starve or live a difficult and dangerous life when there are prosperous jobs sometimes only a few hundred miles away in American cities, just because that person had the misfortune of being born on one side of a political border? Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
