New addition to the family

Recommended Posts

Just got a spanking new Chocolate lad, 7 weeks. Wifey was not too pleased because our Daughter is getting married the Sat. after Labor day. With all the reliticks and outlaws comming to town she did not want to have the house smelling like puppy ( you know potty stuff) Well when I bought it it was under the conditions that if it was either puppy or divorce that I could return it by this Wed. Sat was a little rocky to say the least, Sunday she was not speaking too much, told me to call the guy back to return it Monday, Sunday night she started to talk rather then yell at him/me Monday morning I went to work she put him in his new kennel b4 she left for work. 8:00 she e-mails me and said the guy called and I could bring him back between 5-6, 11:00 am she e-mailed me and said call him back we can keep him if thats OK with me (I think the pup had more power on this one then I did. Well when I left for work today @ 3:30 she was sitting on the steps drinking her coffee petting the pup. I guess women really do change their minds and that just fine with me.

Sweet! Mission accomplished!! Glad to hear you get to keep the little guy. She may have second thoughts in a couple months, you know......when the chewing and biting starts. Just make sure all her shoes are put away. My girlfriend "lost" several pairs of shoes to my pup. And you know how those girls like their shoes! grin Good luck with the new addition.

Last dog we had the girls wanted to train it, ( thought I might be too ruff) Well he only ate 1 of my shoes, and at least 6 pairs each of #1 , #2 daughter and moms shoes. They always wondered why he never liked mine lol. Beagle friggin chewing machine. ate a hole in my wall and buried a bone, chewed up the bottom of fridge. every outside corner of trim boards, 1 garden hose,(pssst. he never ate another one) my dieing Dads oxygen hose. That was funny he called my wife and said his hose is a little short and if I could stop and get another, When I got home his 60' of hose was nowabout 1 foot, he had his face up to the tank all day.

My parents have a dog that had an obsession with wires. He chewed the lights of my dad snowmobile trailer 3 times. Realizing how bad this could be they tried to keep wires hidden from lamps, televisions etc. Well one day he got to the cord on a lamp. He never chewed on wires again (he survived).

That's priceless. I'm picturing this dog with a stunned look on his face and all of its hair standing straight out like a blow fish and a plume of smoke rising. Ahh, pictures are worth a thousand words. HA

Just the opposite happened to me: My husband did not want a dog!!

The last dog he had was a hunting dog he loved so much, and someone in his hometown shot it, right in the yard. So, he couldn't bring himself to get another dog.

Well, in January, I started talking about getting a Bichon Frise (as I am allergic to other breeds) and he said absolutely not.

On Feb. 29 I brought home a 2 year old rescue Bichon named Duke. Then, hubby said ok, but not in our bedroom, then it was not in our bed. Now it's - he can sleep with us, but has to be still.

Hubby loves this little guy. It's amazing what the dog can do to melt your heart.

Always easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission. Returning a puppy, I know I would never be able to do that.

Heck - when people ask me to watch their dogs I have a hard time giving them back.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
