James is doing VERY well. He's up 2+ lbs since his discharge... Had a sweat test to rule out CF 100% done that came back normal, thank God. So apparently he just had an extra twist in his gut that twisted a bit too much and caused the whole mess.Little guy doing well?
So, I've been being a total va-jeen about processing any rabbits, since they're just so effing adorable.
...one of my does attacked me today. My hands look like ground beef. Had I the time or energy to process an animal today, it would have received my .22 between the eyes. Well, now that I cannot in good conscience sell or give this animal away, I MUST process it, as soon as I have time. -_-
That's my mulch...You talking about the dead looking ground underneath it, or the barren looking tree? I was going to suggest deer, until I saw the ground looking like that. No idea now.
...open mouth, insert foot. Haha, sorry about that man, wasn't really sure what I was supposed to be looking at, meant no offense.That's my mulch...
Apparently it's a flippin squirrel. Didn't get ANYTHING at the gunshow, so I may just have to use the muzzleloader on one. Should only take one direct hit to get the point across.
Err... again, this was all covered by insurance past your deductible, right? If not, I think I'll keep this post in mind the next time someone asks me why I'm so convinced kids aren't for me...You ever had one of those days... then you open something like this?
This was just for his room...
Err... have a bit to drink, or that whole apocalypse nonsense?Anyone else surprised we woke up today?
Yeah, and since only I work we only had to pay $300 of our deductible. I think it's because my wife worked there more than anything, but I'm not complaining either way.Err... again, this was all covered by insurance past your deductible, right?

Enghf. I really abhor American-bred German Shepherds these days. Hyper, brainless things for the most part.Meh, I'd rather get him a nice, big dog to watch over him and his brothers when they get older... There's a breeder for German Sheps 1/2 mile from us. I'm considering that in a year or two. That way when I have to take care of it it can atleast be something that will visibly enjoy seeing me at 2am every morning... and they don't need pwder baths.
What would you recommened? NO labs of any type...Enghf. I really abhor American-bred German Shepherds these days. Hyper, brainless things for the most part.
If you do plan on using that breeder, just make sure they offer health guarantees. I know GSD's tend to have bad hips, but I think they also tend to have bad elbows and eye problems, if I recall correctly.
Reminds me of something...Also, yes, it is acceptable to put capes on chinchillas, although I have not yet found any to fit. I wanted an eye patch for Una the One-Eyed Wonder Chinchilla, but have not yet found one.
German Shepherd might not be a bad bet - meet the dogs of your neighbors who are selling puppies. If they're not arr-tarded, and the owners offer health guarantees, go for it.Family/flock Guard... something that's active at the appropriate times (mainly- not nocturnal)
Something that would play with the boys well and follow them everywhere.
I love beagles, but think something a bit larger would be nice. I want something that if the boys were out in the woods and they ran across a stray the dog could fight the other dog off if it came down to it.
Most importantly, it needs to be smart and listen well. I'm over the stupid dogs that we are currently surrounded by. I understand that a lot of this is training the dog from the get go, and I'm willing to put forth the effort, but dogs that are too dumb to learn to stay out of the house and garage just annoy the crapp out of me.
The dog will be outside 99.99% of the time.
