New Pup!


Recommended Posts

I'm picking up my new best buddy at 3 P.M. Sat. afternoon.

He's a 'fawn-phase' yellow lab. I have a 10 year old female

Golden now. Her mate devoloped some health problems last year, so we had to make that hardest of decisions to let him go to the happy hunting ground. Our Vet helped make the decision easier, but it's still tough! frown.gif

So now I thought it was time to get another male into the household. I relize that labs are alot more energetic, but I'll just have to have him do a little more swimming to tire him a little. Wish me luck with the house-breaking and initial field training. My Golden sure learned to love retrieving waterfowl, she's a little less polished in the field though. I only hope the new guy learns as fast as she did. grin.gif

Whether the new guy learns as fast or not I'm sure you'll have fun with him! Have fun!

Do everything you can to be worthy of your new pal. I've had a bunch of 'em and they are all better creatures than I am. Treat him with respect. Strive to be smarter than he is,because you have to know more than he does. Protect him and help him.

Ufatz - your post reminds me of a prayer that I was taught long ago. "God, please help me be the man that my dog thinks I am" If we all were, the world would be a pretty darn good place. Good luck with the new pup! One word, patience.

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
