As the new year approaches, a man's thoughts begin to stray to the dog towns, it seems. In the last two weeks, I have gone through the ammo cabinet to make sure I have an adequate supply. Just this morning, I emailed our outfitter to get penciled-in on their calendar. At dinner this evening p dogs and dates were a topic of conversation. Now, I find related threads have been started and/or resurrected on the topic. Can "the season" be far away?
