Hi-On Skeeter

16 posts in this topic

The day I knew was getting closer and probably would have been over months ago hadn't it had been for the desire and playfulness that she always had that kept her young at heart., it was there up till the very end. The preparation and task kept me numb, it had to be done. Today I put Skeeter down. As I write a knot in my throat starts and tears come, I'm happy that sorrow is here now, she was a great dog.

Hi-On Skeeter.

Losing a best friend like that is about one of the hardest things there is in life. Sorry for your loss. You have a million memories of her to keep you going. Some day you will be ready for another friend. They will never be able to replace Skeeter, but you will grow to love them just the same. Take care.

Thoughts and good wishes to you ST. We put our 13 year old lab Sadie down on Monday. She had one of the best noses out there and would go all day.

Here's to happier days ahead, and to all the great memories.

You still have a great dog, just now in your memories, and Skeeter probably made sure you had plenty of those memories before she left. I am very sorry for your loss and I hope you and your family mend well.

take care

Daniel

Sorry your loss. I know how you feel, I did the same thing 3 weeks ago. She was 16 years old.

So sorry for your loss.

"A dog does not live as long as a man and this natural law is the font of many tears. If a boy and a pup might grow to manhood and doghood together, and together grow old, and so in due course die, full measure of heartache might be avoided. But the world is not so ordered, and dogs will die and men will weep for them as long as there are dogs and men."------Ben Ames William from Wingshooters Autumn.

A very eloquent quote GTN...

Frank, Sorry to hear of Skeeters passing. Our dogs can never truely die as long as we keep the memories of them alive and strong within our hearts.

Godspeed Skeeter!

Good Luck!

Ken

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
