No Bones

4 posts in this topic

Just wanted to give a little heads up to all the people who feed their dogs any kind of bones. Two weeks ago I went out fishing at three thirty in the afternoon and when I got home at seven thirty my four year old lab was dead. I brought her to the vet the next day and he did an autopsy and told me that she died from complications of trying to digest deer bones. I had thrown a deer carcess out in the yard after deer hunting for my dogs to chew on like I do every year and appently she had some splinter and tear up her digestive tract. She then developed pancreites which caused her lungs to fill with blood. The vet said that this can happen with any kind of bones and said that no bones of any kind should be fed to a dog. Hope this helps somebody from making the same mistake I made. She was a great hunter and our best friend.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I stick to raw hides and only give them to my dogs when I can watch them.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
