Monday Mischief

Gambler was a little ticked off that John took Glory hunting and even more so that he had the nerve to walk across the field where Gambler could watch them go. He was being mischievous and jumped up on the back of the couch again to watch them leave. Can you see John in the field? Glory is next to him.

Hey why does she get to go and not me?

Nothing But Norman #15

Happy Saturday Everyone!


You will be happy to know you won’t read a sappy crying post this week. No melt downs as Norman had a great week! He is doing great on his pain meds and feeling good. He still has a limp but he is managing to get around just fine. Stairs are still a hassle and it might be time for me to move down to the couch with him. Even if I do move down to the couch I will need to put up a baby gate to keep Norman from going up the steps. Whenever I go up stairs he feels the need to follow me up there as he always has to be where ever I am. I tell him I will be right back but he doesn’t listen and he follows me up. I love him so much that he loves me so much he always wants to be by me.

I didn’t go on any outing with him this week. I did give him a crown knuckle bone from Jones Naturals Chews. He loved it!

Follow-Up Friday along with FitDog Friday

We are joining Jodi at Heart Like A Dog for Follow-Up Friday.
Welcome to this week’s edition of Follow-Up Friday, the blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.


Nothing But Norman #14

My favorite pic from our walk.

My favorite pic from our walk.

Thank you all again for your thoughts, prayers and kind words during this difficult time of knowing when to say goodbye to a loved one.


Here’s what my vet said to me that helped me make the decision about Becca…”when your dog is terminal (as Becca was), and in pain, you can’t be too early…but you can be too late”. That was hard to hear, but it helped me do what was right for Becca, not what was right for me.

Thank you SlimDoggy for letting me know what your vet told you, it is so true and I need to listen to it so I thought I would share it with everyone else. 

Black And White Sunday




Love the picture! So I’m thinking it has to be one of your babies when they were a puppy! Which one is it?

It is Gambler.

See something interesting in the tall grass?

He was wishing he would see some ducks!

Gambler is off of injured reserve and is back in action running all over the place. Can’t keep him down for long. 

Scoop That Poop~ Poop Poetry

Scoop That Poop

Scoop That Poop

I have to clarify. I think The Fifth Paw is a awesome contraption, I just don’t think it works will when walking multiple dogs with multiple leashes hooked up to a very large caribeaner. The leashes got all tangled up from the dogs moving back and forth and then the poop bags got tangled in the leashes.

Crafty Tuesday~Paracord Dog Collar

Some of the collars I made.

The collars look GREAT! The paracord is fun because of all the color options. I need to learn how to make the thin leashes. Love those because they fit so nicely in a pocket.

Leashes are next Amy, I love them too and your right, so many color options.


I remember F & F from when I lived in Madison…

You lived in Madison, wow! Were you raised there or just lived there for a while. Small world!

Wordless Wednesday~Rain Jacket




Even though its raining you guys still go out. Do you have a Snow Jacket?

Yes even know it rains we still go out or should I say John and the dogs go out. Ducks love the water so some of the best hunting is in the rain. I am a fair weather hunter and if it is raining I usually don’t go. No snow jackets, just vests to keep them warm. I on the other hand have enough clothes to look like a Eskimo.

I bet a Chessie’s coat is pretty water repellent even w/o the camo-jacket!

You are so right. Chessie’s are one of the oiliest dogs out there for that reason to repel water. They were breed to be able to withstand the harsh elements of weather, in order to do that their coats need to repel water. They have a oil gland in their tail that supply’s the oil. Some male dogs will have a bare spot on their tail about 1/4 the way down from the base of the tail and that is the gland, for some reason they loose the hair over that gland. It is often called stud tail.

Gambler, Glory and Nellie are getting fit each day I have off. You see it is hunting season now so when I am off I take them hunting. Sometimes we go duck hunting, sometimes we go pheasant hunting yesterday Glory went goose hunting, Gambler and Nellie went pheasant hunting. Poor Gambler and Nellie walked and ran for 1 hr and 45 mins and didn’t get any birds. They got a nice workout thou and that will help Nellie burn calories and hopefully loose some weight. Glory got plenty of retrieves in a corn field this morning so she got her quota of exercise today also.

I did mostly all these retrieves so I was getting fit today.
