Nice looking dog Archbuck.
He just has a laid back look to him.
Sota, you have any pics of him ?
Just old regular photos. I have not grouse hunted since I lost him.
We have two rescue dogs. One we picked up almost 5 years ago and the other 4 months ago. The larger one is a male Black Mouth Cur. His name is MF Jones. He's 80 lbs, fast as hell and thinks his job is to protect the wife and I along with our property. He is a serious dog as in he takes everything serious. You can tell by the look on his face in some of the photos. This dog is tough as nails. We live in the sticks on 45 acres of which he patrols about 5. He will run everything off of the property unless I am there to stop him. Coyotes, turkeys, coons, deer, Jehova witnesses....everything. He don't understand why I call him off of deer but he obeys. He's the smartest and best dog I've ever had.
The smaller dog is a female Pit bull mix. She must have some bird dog in her as she is really keen on birds, even while riding in the truck. She is 14 months old and still has a lot to learn but she's getting better every day. She had been chained up outside and starved. You could see all of her ribs and spine. She has put on 13 pounds in the 4 months we've had her. Went from 42 to 55 pounds. Right now she thinks her job is to wrestle and pester Jones. She never wins but she never quits either. It's a good thing that Jones is so tolerant of her. Oh, her name is Zeva and she loves all people and other dogs. Here are some pics....
Watching deer in the back yard
I told them we were going to the store to get them some treats and toys! Lol
My best friend is getting old... she finally gave in and is now using the ramp I built. Hoping she makes it till the fall, she loved to hunt. Collin, it was good to see Ruck again.
It's tough watching them struggle, Jeff. Here are some updated Ruck pictures. He is definitely loving Colorado and all of our new adventures here.
Hank is a Rescue I adopted a few months back. He just turned 3 the other day. He was definitely abused by his previous owners. When I got him he would cower anytime anybody approached him and he had been shot at least twice with birdshot (due to the healed wounds on his side and the fresh ones on his ass). The vet ended up removing 1-1/2 oz of lead from him. He is still petrified of guns and I doubt that will ever change so I don't think he will do much hunting, although sheds and blood tracking (during archery season) may be in the works. He has turned out to be an amazing pup. He is no longer afraid of people in the least bit. It only took 10 days to house train him. He doesn't bark, as in never, I have only heard him bark one time in 3 months and it was only a single "Wolf", but most of the previous boxers I've had rarely barked so thats pretty standard. When I first got him he had never been on a leash in his life (at least not one that wasn't tied to a tree) and was absolutely terrible to walk, but he has gotten so good that now you don't even have to attach the leash to his collar, you just carry it in your hand and he will walk right next to you just like he is on it. He comes to work with me most days and just hangs out in my office napping and occasionally getting up to go make his rounds to everybody else's office in case somebody happens to be handing out belly rubs or treats.
Yes, I did remember to put the coversheet on my tps report.
Annual review time... Apparently everybody needs to be more proactive with the belly rubs and back scratches.
By the way, figured that this might be worth mentioning on this thread in case anybody hasn't seen it.
I never bought into the whole grain free mumbo jumbo to begin with (whether it was for humans or dogs). Most of the foods that are on that list are the fancy stuff that sells for $60-100 a bag. Kind of ironic that come to find out if all these people spending $300/month on fancy organic free range dog food would've just stuck with the $10 bag of kibbles and bits then their wallet and their dog would've been a lot better off.

Some beautiful dogs!!!
Here are my 2 beagles! By far the friendliest, loving dogs I’ve ever owned. They have me completely wrapped around their paws!
Sandy is the white one. She is 9 and an absolute food moose! She once ate an unattended box of 50 munchkins in less than 5 minutes...
Cooper is the baby at 5. He is a pointer/beagle mix. We rescued him from a shelter in TN. He was only a few months old but had already been beaten and abused. He is scared to death of any man but me. He loses his bladder if there is another man who comes in the house. He is the sweetest dog in the world. He would have been an amazing hunting dog!
The last picture is the night Cooper came home to us! It was the same night I was leaving for my Illinois hunting trip in 2014!
