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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
