Nothing But Norman #14

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.

SLIMDOGGY (@MYSLIMDOGGY) says:

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.

DOGS N PAWZ says:

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

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.

AMYWERN says:

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.

GIZMOGEODOG says:

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

GOLDENWOOFS says:

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.

  1. I love seeing dogs do what they were bred to do. 🙂 I am kinda shocked that the geese were just hanging out around their fallen comrades, shouldn’t they be heading for the hills?

  2. Oh gosh that photo of Glory bringing in the duck is beautiful…and the one of her surrounded by all those Canadian geese is great too…How did you keep her from chasing them?

    I lived briefly in Madison, then in Middleton, just down the street from the Capital Brewery…This was in the mid-late 1990’s…till my mom got sick and i had to come back to Florida…The dogs and I would hang out in the outdoor (dog-friendly) beer garden with all the Badger fans on Saturdays…small world indeed
