Megan And Dottie


Driftless

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I was up early at about 5:00 sitting in my recliner in the dark and thinking about the year that had passed. I thought about all the people that had gone away in 2020 and the couple that left in late 2019. I remember visiting a couple in the middle of December last year and at the end of our visit they revealed to me that the husband had cancer and he was terminal.

 

I have visited the wife in 2020 a couple times and she seemed to be doing well on her own. It was obvious to me she valued her independence and was still doing well so it was really hard to feel sorry for her when I visited her.

 

I wanted to visit her and maybe take a Christmas present to her. Barb told me that she was so independent that it might not go over well. I thought about taking her groceries I thought about just visiting.

 

We finally put our heads together and decided that maybe I should take her a big bag of dog food for her  outdoor dogs that I love to pet. I've been there enough time in 2020 that both of the dogs Megan and Dottie met me at the car.

 

Their master came out of the house and greeted me and we talked about how she was doing and how her dogs were and how she was handling being alone. She seemed so strong and I smiled inside because of it. She welcomed my gift of a big bag of dog food and we talked for a while yet and I told her Merry Christmas and I bid her adieu and good luck for 2021. I petted Megan and Dottie one more time and got into my car and drove away.

My first time I met the dogs I talked to their dad and he told me their names were Stinky and Dottie.

 

 

When I went to the house to meet their mom I made the mistake of calling the one dog stinky. Her husband smiled and told me that her real name was Megan and that their mom did not like him calling her stinky.

 

She told me that the dog had such a beautiful name and it was called Megan.

 

Yesterday when the dogs met me at the car I went down on my knee and called them and they both came up to me and I patted them. I smirked and thought about their dad and the nickname of Megan as being stinky.

 

I rubbed her and petted her and Dottie and scratched Stinky's ears and called her stinky just before I left. I thought to myself that she hadn't been called that nickname for almost a year and might want to hear it again. I was right..... she lit up when she heard the word stinky. Dogs are such loyal creatures and humans can learn from them about unconditional love.

Great reflections Len. 

I'm sure when folks lose someone it's hard to go on but they have to do their best. Like my mother in law when my father in law passed away.  Strong willed woman. I think they like the company, they just don't want people feeling sorry for them, all the time.  Keep up the visits as a friend, so she doesn't feel like your there just to check up on her and give her sympathy.  ?

    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.  
    • ahh good old whistlindiesel, your just part of the click bait generating even more revenue for him now   love him or hate him he sure knows how to generate some buzz   Also he was already on the Mn DNR $hitlist for this and ticketed see below:      
    • Watch the two videos below and see what you think?  Wet land destruction or not?   I saw these clowns on Youtube and sent it in to the MN DNR and this was there reply and mind back to them.   May help to read the Wet land use description on the DNR web page as well.     Read bottom-up.     To: Vollbrecht, Brice (DNR) Cc: Seefeldt, Phillip (DNR)  "Well you are the experts paid to protect our wet lands.  If you didn’t see any objectional wet land damage in either of the two videos I forwarded.   Then I guess I must have been mistaken what wetland and Wild rice bed damaged must be?  Just a question if there registered to operate in a public water area, do they have to use a boat launch like every other water craft or just fly off through the reeds like they did in the video?  Keep doing a great job guys!  May be I buy one.  Thanks for your time.  Steve"          Sent from Mail for Windows From: Vollbrecht, Brice (DNR) Sent: Saturday, December 3, 2022 3:53 PM To: [email protected] Cc: Seefeldt, Phillip (DNR) Subject: Sherp Complaint Steve: I got an email sent to me through the info center regarding a wetland complaint you had sent in about a year ago.  I also saw the email you attempt to send Captain Seefeldt.  Just wanted to let you know the Captain was not  ignoring you, it looks like you misspelled his name in the original email you sent.   This spring after the snow/ice melted and things started to green up, one of our enforcement pilots flew around the area where the farm is located.  The pilot was unable to locate any areas of concern where the Sherp may have caused damage to the wetland.  The pilot also flew over other wetland areas close to the farm, but did not observe any damage. The Sherp is dual registered which would allow it to operate in a public water area.  If the other wetland/lake where they drove down the road is private property we have not received any complaints from landowners down there for trespass.   I have included the Captain in this email.  If you have any further questions feel free to contact either one of us. Thank you Conservation Officer Brice Vollbrecht, Bemidji #1 Station MN DNR Enforcement (Cell)-218-760-1798
