FREE Three Year Old Chocolate Lab Female

9 posts in this topic

Due to various reasons we are going to give up our 3 year old female chocolate lab. She is a purebred dog, but no papers available. I have hunted with her, and she is not gun shy. She is an outside dog, and stays in a TE Scott raised floor kennel during the day and when not in the kennel, is contained on our property with a Pet safe brand invisible fence. Both the kennel and fence will be available when the dog has found a new home. Email me at garysal@yahoo.com or call 612-875-0516

I have had a few questions wanting to know the reasons, what is wrong with the dog, etc. There is really nothing wrong with the dog, other than she can be a pest sometimes, always wanting attention, etc. I got her because I missed hunting after my other dog passed away, and it turns out for one reason or other, I only got out a few times each of the last few years. Also a job change puts me out of town more often, and finding someone to let her out to run every day can be a challenge at times. There are a few other personal reasons, but the dog is not the problem. She is not aggressive, seldom barks, and basically needs a family that can give her more attention than I can. I have also decided to include the invisible fence if you need it, but you will need to purchase wire.

A-body,

I had to have my lab put away a year ago and have been looking for an older lab that will hunt.

I live in N.E. Minnesota, Tower, Mn., and have plenty of room for a dog to run and a lake for her to play in.

I would like to know if she is house broke, as all of our dogs have been house dogs and she would be too. Also has she been spayed? If so, that would be great!

If possible, could you send a couple of pictures?

Thank You!

Cliff

A-Body, I met your pooch a week ago or so (Cliff is my neighbor) and what a nice dog! It had to be hard to give her up...I can tell you that she is doing well and loves her new home and new owners!

I'm glad to hear Whitney and Cliff are doing well. It was a tough decision, one I had been thinking about for almost a year. I've had dogs for over 30 years, but with my lifestyle changes, along with a few other issues, I believed it was in her best interest to find someone who could give her the attention she needed. If I ever get in the area again, I'll have to stop in and say hello.

Gary

      Good reports guys.   We were up Wednesday to Sunday.   I second you on the weather, rain and wind got old.  Not to mention bugs were terrible.  No see ums bothered us the most.      For us luckily the fishing was great.   Limited on bows and Lakers.   Had several stellar meals too.

      Hi, I'm looking for a fresh report from the North end.  Thanks!

      Refresh my memory... If we just go into Trout Lake for the day, we are not required to get a permit in advance. We just fill out the form at the portage. Is that correct?
    • Avid Angler
      Yeah that is the one.

      Thanks for the information!  Whenever I'm moving, I use a ram mount to secure my bow mount. I just got the Ulterra this spring.  I had a Terova on my last boat. I was going across the lake in 3 footers and the locking mechanism failed and the motor deployed. Ever since then, I secure it for a piece of mind.

      One of my trolling motor batteries decided to take a crap on me so it didn't have enough power to go into the wind so  that made it tough...we tried a few drifts in areas that looked good for eyes, but didn't pan out....We went to a different spot and started catching nice sized gills on the rigs so we decided to just say screw walleyes and go for gills (I could tell the gf wasn't digging the 20mph wind in the face lol). So we went to a spot I've fished in the winter and ended up catching a 20,24"...We caught them not to long before we left right in the same area.... I've never fished it in the summer before so I wasn't expecting much...The look on my gfs face when she caught the 24 was priceless though so I was happy.

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.
