Hey guys, this seems like a forum to vent this a bit. My 3.5year old beagle is currently having surgery to remove a plastic shopping bag from her belly. Not sure what got into her, the bag actually contained clothes for my daughter, not food. Just another thing to keep out of reach of the animals in your family I guess.

I am worried about her, but the vet says it is a pretty common surgery. Anyone else have dogs that have attacks of poor judgement? I feel like I am as much to blame, but I would have placed that as way low on a dog's priority list of chew toys.....

Found a pair of thong panties in my dogs kennel after he stayed with my sisters. I think he threw them up after consuming them, at least they came out this way.

I have to say he does have good taste in panties, Victoria Secret thong!

A friend of mine from work brought home their new baby from the hospital and their lab ate the little hat the baby was wearing.His vet said that it was a common thing.

Thanks for the entertaining stories and well wishes. Vet just called.. Two and a half hours of surgery and we have recovered the bag and fixed a hernia.

After two weeks of recovery, she should be back on her feet and looking to chase the bunnies again this fall.

A lot of human friends have come and gone, but the canine buddies make the biggest impression, don't they?

Hand towel went through my young vizsla pup. Had to stand on the end to get it all out. Very sheepish look on the dogs face.

His mother also liked lipstick and vaseline. She downed and licked clean a whole pound jar. It was winter and cold so when she had to go out she went. Made her own snowman! Stood straight up!!

both those dogs are gone now so even though you have one going in for surgery you will be able to laugh about it later. Good luck

Just went thru an episode last week where the 8 month old pup pulled a bag of peanuts (used for birdfeeding) off the shelf in the garage and then her and the 7 year old lab scarfed down as much as they wanted. The pup came out fine - it all passed thru her - but the old dog got bound up. After two days of watching her go out into the grass and accomplish nothing, I took her to the vet. She ended up getting an enema. Nows shes fine.

Puts a whole new light on crunchy peanut butter!!!

This may seem like a dumb question, but how do you limit the dog's activity during the recovery time? If I put her in her crate, she will try to dig out of it. (past experience) Beagles are pretty high strung by nature and this one will be pretty excited to come home. The said it would be ok to transfer her to the kennel in the same facility for 7-10 days or so. Then they can monitor recovery and she will be closer to "back to normal" before se gets home. Sound like it would be worth the extra stay?

She is doing great, and the whole tract seems to be working..

Not sure if this helps but in order to calm my dog while recovering from healing from a sprained foot/knee my vet said to give her Benedryl. It made her sleepy so she was less likely to run around and be active. My dog is about 75 lbs and I gave her 1 pill of the adult benedryl. I later switched to 2 pills of the children's benedryl as it is half the dose of the adult and comes in a chewable form. When I switched to the childrens my dog thought it was a treat and like eating them. Not sure if this helps or not, but if you think that might work I would check with your vet first before giving her that.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!
