Getting even....


Recommended Posts

My daughter is 21 months old, my brittany puppy is 8 months old. They love each other, but torment each other to death. Mostly, the puppy torments the girl. Sometimes on purpose, mostly by just being a wild puppy. Belle, the puppy, knocks down Lauren, the daughter, quite often. She steals her crackers and licks her face. I would say Belle torments Lauren about 3 times as much as Lauren torments Belle.

Today, that all changed. Occasionally, I put Belle's shock collar on her for the day for two reasons. One, I dont want her to be collar smart (which she kinda is anyway) and the other is that she obeys her commands so much better (without even shocking her). I left the house for work this morning and left the controller on the kitchen table. Lauren found it. My wife couldnt figure out what was wrong with Belle when she started hopping around. Luckily, I have it set pretty low and it didnt last long. But I gotta believe, somewhere inside Lauren, she was saying "Take that Belle!". So my wife informed me I must be a little more careful on where we put the controller. I feel kinda bad about the whole thing on one hand, but on the other, no damage was done and Lauren has been on the wrong end of the torment for a long time. Oh, it should be noted, Lauren had no clue what she was doing. Thought you guys would get a chuckle out of that.

Thats funny. I can just picture the puppy jumping around and your wife wondering "what the heck was wrong with that dog"

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
