    I have to muzzle my dog when I take him to the vet. The dog in the picture is probably muzzled because moslems smell like pigs and dogs just love bacon.

    My dog will find my empty casings when I shoot in the yard. Didn’t have to teach him anything, just let him smell one spent casing and tell him to go find it. A reloaders dream.

    How does the dog know when to jump? Is that water? How high above the water.
    I would think if it was above ten feet it would knock the dog out.
    Never knew dogs jumped out of choppers.

    My kids begged me to teach a new pup we had a trick.

    I valued tricks fairly low. I like useful things like this post pictures. Not useless circus stuff like they wanted.

    Being the loving Dad I am I gave in and taught it to fall over after pointing my now banned-in-all-schools finger gun at it and saying BANG!

    Well, he wouldn’t fall over at first – any time I tried it – but after I told him it was a really BIG bullet and he’s already dead he laid over. Not kidding, the talk became part of it.

    We lost him one day. He was only 4 months old at the time. Posted signs in the neighborhood. The kids were upset. He was a wonderful, beautiful half Basenji.

    We got a call and I went to the house that was only two hundred yards away.

    The man asked “How do I know he’s really yours?”

    I put him on the floor, pointed my finger gun at him and went BANG!

    He just sat there and looked at me with a slight cock to his head. Then I told him “It’s a really really BIG bullet! You’re dead!

    Fell right over.

    Proof enough. We went home to many more years together.

    I valued that “stupid” trick a lot more afterwards.

    Animal Planet ran a special 2 hour special last night

    Glory Hounds on our troops and their war dogs. I haven’t watched it yet but it looks like a lot of material from Afghanistan.

    Here’s a link

    Unruly…my GSHs did that on 45 shells, but preferred to catch clays when I missed.

    When the Boys see me loading the launcher in the truck they get real excited, even the people at at the range love seeing them
