  1. I would take you up on the offer, but my son is only 7-1/2, so no hunting license yet.

    Deciding when it's time

    Top picture is the day we got her, last picture is the day she left us. The baby is my son the day we brought him home from the hospital.

    Deciding when it's time

    Thanks guys. It was one of the hardest decisions to make, she came in my room in the middle of the night last night and was just whimpering. The vet said she could have had cushings disease, kidney failure, diabetes or major cancer. She is no longer suffering, and was with her when she took her last breath, she is no longer in pain. She was a hell of a dog, going to be difficult for any other dog to top her.

    Thanks guys. I have an appointment tomorrow morning. My son gave her a hug tonight and her teeth chattered. If you never heard a dog do that, it is a very odd sound. I googled it after it happened and apparently it is a sign of major pain. Maybe that was the sign I was looking for. Either way we will talk with our vet tomorrow. In the meantime she is getting some good treats.

    Deciding when it's time

    Thanks for all of the advice. I have an appointment scheduled for Saturday morning. My mom sent me a picture of her from a few years ago, and that also show me how sick looking she is today compared to back then. Here she is in her prime.
  6. I am having the hardest time trying to decide when it is time for my lab.. She turns 13 this December. We struggled with the idea of putting her down this past winter - she was very slow to get up, could hardly move, slept a lot, and wasn't herself. Spring time rolls around, and she rejuvenated thanks to the warmer weather. Now I feel like it is time, she has numerous lumps on her and this past week we noticed a new one near her spine on her back, I just can't bare to see her suffer. It is very tough though when she walks up wagging her tail. That being said, she eats OK, is very slow to sit, stand, or walk down stairs which leads me to believe she does have pain and it's time. She is the best dog anyone can ask for, just struggling with the decision. She is the first dog my wife and I have had, aside from our family pets when growing up but our dads took care of those decisions back then.

    Help with a Thief

    Terrible. I hunt back there and I had a game camera up in a tree in some branches about 9 feet up, where I thought it was camouflaged well. Someone cut down the tree it was in and I found the camera on the downed tree. Not sure if the person that did it was spooked and took off or if it was to send a message, either way made me angry. Didn’t get a picture of who it was, they cut down from the backside of the camera.
  8. Interesting story playing out in Lacey, students were suspended for posting a photo to their social media at the range. My son just celebrated his 7th birthday and has already shot numerous times, should he be suspended too?

    Camping & Hiking in State Parks

    Worthington looks really nice. I have a 32' long tow behind camper - do you know if I will I have any issues in Worthington? I have never stayed at Stokes or Worthington with my camper. Is one more friendly than the other towards using a camper?
