The Joy of Pups

Recommended Posts

My boy is a bit over 6 months, and we are going through all of the normal trials and laughter.

Last week, he finally discovered the joy of rolling in dead things. I had brought him out for his final potty break before we went to bed, and he found something really awful back in the swamp behind the house. 11:00 at night wind howling and a bit of snow, and giving the dog a bath in the backyard.....

A few days earlier, he disappeared while I was doing some laundry, and Jr. was busy 'chatting online with babes'. We discovered him on Jr.'s bed, laying on his back with his head on the pillow. Jr. screamed in anguish, as he discovered the empty container, which had been full of chocolate chip cookies mere moments earlier......

Tonight as I was grilling some Bambi chops for supper, I looked through the sliding glass doors and saw the pup standing over his rug, facing away from me and furiously gnawing on something. "Houston, we have a problem" came into my mind, as I slid the door open and raced over to him.

Too late. A bar of Ivory soap had been pretty well destroyed and ingested. Paw prints in the downstairs shower provided mute evidence of where he got it from.... His breath smelled very fresh, and we all waited expectantly for him to start burping up bubbles when he went for the water dish....

I swear, they get into more mischief!!

Mine used to grab toilet paper from the roller and run. When it broke, she would go do it again. Its pretty funny until you have to clean it up.

Last night my wife came in from taking our 7 mo old YLM out to relieve himself. He comes in, walked up to me, and out of his mouth he dropped a big ol' turd! It wasn't his turd...it looked like compacted deer [PoorWordUsage]. I suppose it could be, we have deer in our backyard all the time.

Nasty!

A 7.5 month old great dane in the same scenario isn't easy, either smile

Yeah, machohorn I know how you feel. I have a GSP, best and first hunting dog I've ever had, but when he was a pup he would chew anything in sight. One time he actually ATE a dog food bowl. Couldn't figure out where it went...until I cleaned up his kennel. Another time he climbed up his kennel fencing and got into his dog food, ate about 4 pounds of a 5 pound bag and looked like he was about to explode. Needless to say, he didn't wanna eat for another couple days. Dogs are the best thing, and the biggest reason I hunt. I don;t know what I'd do w/o my pooch.

My little bud managed to find every single deer bone from the past 5 years of butchering in the woods behind my house. I let him chew on them outside but not bring them inside, which he didn't like. I'd stand with the door open and call him in - he'd head in but when I'd tell him 'drop it' he'd do a 180 as if to say 'I'm not giving up my bone'. So I gave him the silent treatment for a while. I open the door and he's sitting there with the bone in his mouth. 'Wanna come in' I ask, he heads for the door, stops about 10 ft away - I tell him 'drop it' and again he head back out into the yard. This silent treatment sequence went on another 3 times.

Finally after a lenghty period of the silent treatment I head to the door to find him sitting there, looking in through the screen door - no bone in sight.

I open the door and he heads in - at the last second, and quick as lightning, he reaches down by the door jam and snatches the bone up and heads in. I caught him by the hips but that little fart had stashed it out of sight and tried a quick break in!

Looking at my older dog splayed out on the carpet, it's hard to believe that he was called "Devil Dog" as a pup. When unsupervised he chewed window sills, door jambs, rugs, $40, shoes, shoes, and more shoes. The little guy loved leather. He pulled 3 feet of metal cornerbead right out of the drywall. Cut his mouth open, but he didn't mind. He loved to ingest paper towels and tissues. His [PoorWordUsage] was more objects then actual [PoorWordUsage]. We had to "tail proof" the house...moving all breakables at least 2' off the ground. A two year old, 85lb Lab is quite the destruction machine.

Now at 7, he is calm as can be. Very obedient, but sometimes a bit mischevious, he can always be counted on for a laugh.

It's fun to think back on those first 2 years.

    • 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
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
