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

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
