For Your Friend

    I hope everyone had a great Thanks Giving Day filled with hunting, fishing, family time, football, and tons of good food.   I was very fortunate to get some hunting in.  We still have a lot of serious holiday fun ahead of us.  So please take a minute to think about your best friend. 

1.    When traveling with you dog remember to have plenty of room in the car for them to move around.  I don't like to drive more than 2.5 hours before i stop so i can let them out and move around.  I also like to crack a window to supply fresh air. 
2.    Make sure you have a doggy bag!  Take along items your dog is used to like food and treats.  Also take along the favorite toy, extra leash, and any medications your dog may need. 
3.   When you bring your dog to someone Else's house ask about any hazards to your best friend.  Poison, traps, fluids, and anything else you can think of should be out of the dogs area. 
    Every dog is different and may be able to tolerate the situation differently than the next dog.  It is the owner responsibly to know their dog.  This past Thanks Giving my wife and I avoided a disaster by nearly seconds.  We have a great dog and not much else so this really hit us hard and we are very thankful we caught it in time.  Remember point number 3 from above???  Well my father-in-law had poison out for mice and Penny(my friend) found it.  We were all in the room when this went down; however, she did get a few small pellets of the stuff.  After the emergency vet run and a bottle of vitamins we were relieved to find that it was a low grade poison and she was going to be fine.  I just want to urge all of you to keep an eye on your friend this holiday season.

Just a Pinch

Booze Review

     If you have the means, I recommend picking up a bottle of, The Dimple Pinch Scotch Whiskey.  I believe Dimple Pinch would be great after a cold day of late season waterfowl or ice fishing.  Throw in some expensive sharp cheese and your in heaven.  Do not mix this Scotch with anything besides Ice and or Water.  If you find yourself tying flies on a cold winter day or trying to warm up after a muzzle loader deer hunt, give Dimple Pinch a Try.

Boat Make Over

Well the past few weeks has been hectic to say the least.  Work has been busy and the kitchen project is just about done.  I have not had much time to myself, and the few hours of free time has been spent with my wife going to movies and what not.  I am waiting on a plumber to replace the valves under the sink which seems to be as complicated as a manned mission to Mars.  Its complicated and it is not the fault of anyone its just a long process with my condo committee getting everything approved.  We are very happy how everything looks and it is one of the best decisions i have made, and i should be using a new sink this week.
