We lost another good one yesterday. Many years of pheasant hunting caught up to her and with the assistance of the Vet she went peacefully to the other side.

Sorry for your loss. Just remember that you never really lose something that has become a part of you.

dam!.....this has been a hard winter for lot of guys. Sweet looking little dog and you will always have her with you when you have a quiet moment in the field or at home. All my many dogs are still with me and I think of them often; perhaps more so as I get older.

Maxx will always bring a smile to your face and sometimes......a little tear.

I have been thru that very, very tough time myself this last Fall. Sorry for the loss of your best buddy. Your memories will have to do now.

MinnesotaMike, I just went through this a few weeks ago (thanks for your post in my thread), I feel your pain and sorrow to the core! You gave her many wonderful days in the field chasing pheasants and laying around at the lake, something that can never be taken away from you and her! Just remember how much she loved you for that. Those memories are ones we really do cherish and eventually we will be laughing about many of the antics throughout the years! I wish you and your family nothing but the best and I will say a prayer for you and your friend Maxine.

Thanks for all the kind words guys. It has been different around the house, we went from two dogs back in July to now none.

On my way home yesterday I drive buy the place my wife works part time. I saw her car in the lot and the first thing that popped into my mind was " I need to get home to let the dog out "

Needless to say it's quiet around the house.......

Good Luck,

Mike

My beautiful Annie left us a few months back. It was more painful than I can remember, and I've had a bunch of dogs.

Give it some time. Remember Maxx.

But in a month or two, the prime of spring, start to look around at the seasons puppie crop. No rush....just poke around. One day you will walk into a pen and a happy, innocent little face is gonna look up and right into your eyes. You'll say "Well hello there little one."

And the two of you will ride home with her on your lap.

That's the way it works. Life is good.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
