My pup made the move.

10 posts in this topic

Well, she turned from an outside dog to an inside dog yesterday. I figured she needs to be around people more and I never even hunt when it's too cold anyway. So she got a bath and is living in the basement and loving life!

That's great. It should be fun for both of you!. I think that it is kind of a Christmas present for both of you. But you say downstairs.. just wait.. your pup will probably be making it's way upstairs before you know it. But that will be even more fun for ya. grin.gif

Happy Holidays!

Oh, she's already making it upstairs. But I've got a 3 Month old daughter, which the dog is VERY good with. But i've also got a 3 year old son who gets plowed over by Raven all the time. So it'll take a little anti-jump training and she'll be up there.

Congratulations...this will be great for you and the kids. And if you think this will make her less of a hunter you are wrong. I have my dogs with me in the house,sleeping with the kids and living the life of luxury, but people are always impressed with the passion and stamina of my dogs when it comes to hunting. They take the cold as well as I can too!!

Good to see you got the pup in the house. Hope the kids get used to it and have some fun. My dogs are in the house and spoiled as ever. Not sure if I mentioned it but we have 2 GWPs now. Good luck with the jumping and potty training! Talk to you later.

That jumping trick I learned on here from labs4me is working like a charm and the potty training is (dare i say)... done. She hasn't had an accident in the house yet and it's been a few days. check your email, i sent you some pics of the ice house. Good to hear you got another dog, my wife won't let me get another one - yet.

I have been owned by Labradores my whole adult life. I try to make a good human for my pups.

Out of all of the advice I have read on this forum the advice given by LabsForMe has always seemed to be, good sound advice. I always key into what he has to say. It is abvious that he knows his stuff!

The well trained Dog, Has a well trained owner!

My outside hunting dog never turned into an outside hunting dog. She has been an inside hunting dog since we got her. She is a basement dog for the most part. She has the run of the basement, but likes to spend 95% of the time on the top step against the gate. It is crazy how much dogs love to be by people. We have a lab and I think she would rather be sitting by us than eating. The only downfall is the shedding. Wow does she shed in the winter. This is her first full winter with us and she loses about two dogs worth of hair. Oh well, at least that makes us vacuum the basement and steps every other day or so!

We always had our two doggies inside all the time. Our Chocoloate Lab (we just put her down on the 15th) - she was 15 and that dog would sleep in bed and cuddle up with you. She was the best lover but also the best hunting dog. We also have a german short-hair as well - same deal - a lover and a hunter - living the life of luxury! They just fit right in like members of the family.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
