Last story of the night.

Had to hit a local to work Tractor Supply before I left the city for chips and dip for you chicken heads.

Trying to figure out how I got home before 8.

Sweet dreams.



And I can't stop irritating you all with my stupid music.

Good morning all - Chinooks....I had thought more of what Doc posted of a Chinook as well. So learned something.


My wife found the laser pen and has been playing with Mila last few days. Now all she does is run from one room to another to find the "dot"! She goes crazy for the thing. Wife said she will put it up for a week or so

Which reminds me of a story - Laser and Molly. Molly she really loved the laser. Her prey drive was I think, quite high (although I have only been around 3 Dobermans - so not a lot to compare). Anyways we had friends over and I was playing with the laser. Molly was going after it. But I think she had been learning where that laser was coming from. Next thing I know I have perfectly formed bite marks on my soft belly just to the left of my belly button. Imprints of both top and bottom rows were left. And I played with it less and less.


Here you go Mel - not sure if you saw: Dimash Kudaibergen, Lara Fabian, Aida Garifullina - Ti amo cosi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaQFfqC3lnU

OK time to practice - My Friday to be off tomorrow yay - so today is like a Friday. Has been a long week at work so ready for the weekend!!!

Good morning.
Boy I had a great nights sleep.
Love it when that happens.
Went to nosework class last night....really like my new instructor.
The last two classes Hoss has stopped smacking the boxes.
I can see such a difference in instructors, this girl knows her stuff.
Each moment I spend with her I learn something new........
Hoss is really working now........comes home mentally exhausted.
Oh yeah........

Moe, I am giving you a word of caution, from experience, about laser pointer use with high prey drive Dobes- DON'T !!

When we first had Spock as young pup, before joining DT forum, we thought it was cute to have him go bananas chasing laser pointer outside in backyard. He went ape$h!t, and it was hilarious. Spock has a very high prey drive. I stopped using laser pointers after reading bad experiences on this forum. Unfortunately, Spock already had a light obsession by that point. Just taking off my reading glasses indoors and the overhead light shining through the lenses on floor in kitchen would start him off on a chase. He'd be barking & pouncing on the bright light patterns moving on the floor. It even got to the point of him just pouncing on his own shadow when a bright indoor light was above him. Even speaking the word "laser" would start him barking. Not good... (Dobes are smart and can spell - e.g. even spelling out "F L Y" gets him goin')

Spock has grown out of this obsession in his senior years. I recently gave his school class presentations, using a laser pointer on projection screen, with Spock sitting calmly and obedient in front of (4) x fourth grade classes. Wouldn't have been good if he'd gone beserk chasing the red dot!!

Lesson learned- NO LASERS for Dobermans!

Now, for CATS- go ahead and tease & torment them all you want with laser pointers- they're evil and deserve it!!

Bad Cuz, could you please explain to us "city sleekers" why you go to "hit" a Tractor Supply for chips and dip?

Maybe, it's really an excuse to sit upon some brand spankin' new JD tractor equipment and daydream about "Denny's Destiny Plan"?


You didn't forget about that plan already, did you?

This is a VERY interesting and Educational read . I have attended several recurrent training classes for my Commercial License for spraying of pesticides and the protection of Bee's are top of the list to protect , as a Insecticide kills all - good and bad bugs . And for the most part has been very successful in protecting them . But this is sort of a eye opener for the general public - that as some tree huggers are blaming the wrong issue . Lannie and I are here to try and tell the real story of where your food comes from and the problems in general which effect everybody .

Sadly - many of the Australia fires are being set, like in California / all close to Rail lines.
- the World Order, EU & UN...all need us to believe in a "fake climate emergency"
- they need us to heavily tax
- and shore up the Central Banks with too much dept & avoid a insolvent crash
- only Trump can save the good USA now // Canada is already Fxxx'ed, in 3 quick years

For SP - who don't like politics...MAGA.


Globalism Is Dead, Nationalism Is The Way Forward, [CB]s Pivots With A New Plan - Episode 2076a // The fear mongering has begun, if the BREXIT is not done the way the EU wants, millions of jobs come under threat. This is just he beginning, as BJ gets closer to make a deal with the US, the [CB] will push the fear. Trump lets the [CB]/Globalists establishment that they are finished. The doom and gloom days are over, there is a new economy coming into focus.

- Never getting to the point of actually catching their “prey” can drive a dog slightly nuts. There are psychological consequences when the animals don’t find what they’re looking for..
- Chasing 'prey' with no hope of catching it isn’t good for a dog’s psyche.

Morning product demo...(take note, CT guys)

Multi Purpose Leash Demo Video



I liked one of the viewer comments below video: "it's easy with a waist like that!"

Smart marketing. Much better sales results than having Rosie O'D demonstrate the leash....


I have these MP leashes for Spock and Eva, real heavy duty leather, like horse equip. However, if you put around waist, like in video, Spock might pull you over if he spots a squirrel in his yard! Eva will chew through a nylon or light duty (braided type) leather leash, if left unattended. I also get their harnesses from this vendor. Made in Israel and shipped to US in 9-days by USPS Priority Mail.

My Leather Leash's are Synthetic Leather here.
- Mennonites use same material to make horse whips
- strong but don't absorb water... and rot
- bought them when we had Amy, guy out of business now
- but artificial leathers so perfect and comfortable, in hand

Dogs are sensitive to the harmonic vibrations that happen during Earth stresses. I assume that video was of an earthquake? I had a little mutt dog at the time the volcano blew, but I don't recall him howling or keeping me awake the night before. Or maybe I just slept through it. It's been said I could sleep through a train wreck...

I do, too. Zipper was the first Dobe I had with a long show crop, and I honestly thought it had been done as a crappy home-job, and I felt so sorry for her. Then I realized, ALL of them looked like that. I'm getting used to it, but I still prefer a shorter ear, with a bell. Don't hate me.

One caveat: Mocha could have ANY kind of ears at all (even bunny ears, LOL!) and she'd be gorgeous!

I know, that's great, isn't it? Every time I read one of his posts and see that at the bottom, I get all misty, and sometimes weepy. Zipper loved me like that, and it surpassed any amount of trouble she ever caused me, because she LOVED me with every cell of her body. And I her.

Boy, ain't THAT the truth! The ex and I had to start spelling things like "treat" and "walk" and "car" but Ninja was smart as a whip and soon learned how to spell all those words. Next we tried pig-Latin, but that was a no-brainer for him. I think he had a better grasp of English than a lot of people I knew, LOL! The others were of "average" intelligence and spelling ability, but Zipper only had 3 brain cells, so she couldn't spell worth a chit. She could bark, eat, poop, and love. Wait, that's 4 brain cells. Well, anyway, she didn't have one for spelling.

I would NEVER put a leash around my shoulder, especially with a big dog. I've been pulled flat too many times to ever do something that I couldn't get out of just by letting go. I like the design, though, it's clever and it does have potential, but over the shoulder? I've never had a dog trained that well. There's always a squirrel or a cat or another dog lurking around each corner.

We got our second load of hay yesterday, and just in the nick of time, too. The weather guessers said there was a 30% chance of light rain, changing to snow later in the day. The hay guy almost cancelled on us because of the chance of rain, but I said I'd rather have damp hay rather than no hay. We were down to the last bit of the last bale, just enough to feed everyone dinner last night, but not enough for breakfast today, so he came out anyway, dodging tiny spatters of rain all the way. Nothing big. However, about 30 seconds after he got the last bale in the barn, it opened up and started raining hard. The ground is still frozen, so it puddled everywhere, and sure enough, about an hour later it changed to snow. So now it's all frozen outside, paths, puddles, everything, and a thin layer of new snow on most everything. Rich and I are going to have to slide on our butts to get out to the barns for chores today. Usually we're too cold for ice in the middle of winter, but we always have a January thaw, and this is it. Ick. And mud. There will be mud in the barns. And you know I don't mean just wet dirt.

When we first had Spock as young pup, before joining DT forum, we thought it was cute to have him go bananas chasing laser pointer outside in backyard. He went ape$h!t, and it was hilarious. Spock has a very high prey drive. I stopped using laser pointers after reading bad experiences on this forum. Unfortunately, Spock already had a light obsession by that point. Just taking off my reading glasses indoors and the overhead light shining through the lenses on floor in kitchen would start him off on a chase. He'd be barking & pouncing on the bright light patterns moving on the floor. It even got to the point of him just pouncing on his own shadow when a bright indoor light was above him. Even speaking the word "laser" would start him barking. Not good... (Dobes are smart and can spell - e.g. even spelling out "F L Y" gets him goin')

Spock has grown out of this obsession in his senior years. I recently gave his school class presentations, using a laser pointer on projection screen, with Spock sitting calmly and obedient in front of (4) x fourth grade classes. Wouldn't have been good if he'd gone beserk chasing the red dot!!

Lesson learned- NO LASERS for Dobermans!

Now, for CATS- go ahead and tease & torment them all you want with laser pointers- they're evil and deserve it!!

You didn't forget about that plan already, did you?

"Chips and dip" for the chicken hawks. Chicken food.

That trip sucked. Had to drive in the city, in the dark, wet roads and I guess i am getting old. I hate driving in the dark!

Denny's Destiny Plan is a barn. They don't have barns at Tractor Supply, nor JD's.

- Never getting to the point of actually catching their “prey” can drive a dog slightly nuts. There are psychological consequences when the animals don’t find what they’re looking for..
- Chasing 'prey' with no hope of catching it isn’t good for a dog’s psyche.

Speaking of Australian fires.

There is a rodeo facility about 6-7 miles from house. They have all kinds of events. Wildlife shows, motocross, monster trucks, etc.

Lazy E Arena hosted an International Rodeo Finals last weekend.

There were two Aussie bull riders at that event taking donations for the fires. It was all over the local news.

It is really sad that society has come to people starting wild fires on purpose.

Can't blame it on little boys playing with matches anymore.

This world is going to hell in a hand basket.

I could go on and on regarding what's wrong with this world, but I might offend someone.

I have these MP leashes for Spock and Eva, real heavy duty leather, like horse equip. However, if you put around waist, like in video, Spock might pull you over if he spots a squirrel in his yard! Eva will chew through a nylon or light duty (braided type) leather leash, if left unattended. I also get their harnesses from this vendor.

Wouldn't have worked for me and Axel.

He hurt me jumping out of the truck on a down slope with just a plain old leash.

Dang! I went and said his name.

I miss him. He didn't even get to see his new house.

They have these leashes on sale today at JJdog supply. They look very nice. I can't use them. My dog is stronger than I if he/she decides to to after something. I have had one shoulder surgery, wouldn't want another.

Now, I'm gonna chime in, to give SP some "advise", okay?

Since she's so disgruntled at her present job, SP should seek employment at closest JD Dealership to Guthrie, P&K Equip in Edmond?



Benefits of this Win/Win scenario- Call it: "Denny's Destiny Plan"

1. Close to home, only 10.8 miles away, at a job she'd love.

2. Her "Big Yellow" vehicle finance & purchasing experience would be invaluable and fit right in at JD dealer.

3. She'd also be a great JD salesperson- a JD superfan, pouring on the charm, with a little crazy mixed in... (surefire formula)

4. Be able to learn to drive & operate all sorts of JD lawn & ag equipment, while getting paid, without groveling for keys/ permission from Alan.

5. Can "field test" several pieces of lawn & farm equpment at her farm, during each year.

6. Huge employee's discount on JD tractors & parts.

7. Finally, would get to work all day with lots of cute, young men, horse lovin' types, in uniforms, many driving GM products....


Your welcome, in advance, SP!

I am going to start looking at sales positions within the John Deere Corporation. I can do inside sales from Oklahoma.

Thanks for the reminder!



I don't know about the huge discounts, though.

I worked for Home Depot part time, with benefits for a year+.

There was no such thing as an employee discount. Our discount was benefits.

Which didn't benefit me, I had those kinds of benefits from my full time job.

We did get first dibs on out of season sale items, though.

I snagged a decent drill set for $25.

Better add my 2cents here before it gets buried. To early to go into too much detail. My daughter and I tried beekeeping for five years. Lost every year to varroa. Finally bought the topbar hives vs the langstroth so bees could build their own comb and we could downsize bees to normal size so to keep out varroa. I hated using the varroa strip, but we couldn't seem to get around it.

We stopped the beekeeping for a few years to clear more property, plant a bee 'garden' regroup, read, plan and start again soon.
It is the most fascinating hobby. We learned so much, but such a downer to lose them in winter.
