Well, Ol` Gunner went to wherever good dogs go. He was a good one. He never so much as growled at my kids and he always let visitors and strangers know he was watching their every move, yet he had the confidence to know he did`nt have to act tough. He singlehandedly dispatched 3 coons at once one day(and yes, contrary to popular opinion, they do gang up if they think it will pay off). We`ll miss him and it`ll be awhile before I don`t look out the window each morning to see him out front waiting for us to come out.


So, Isaiah deserves to have a dog and the wife and I have been discussing what kind of dog to get. Here`s my choices:









or, second choice: This guy looks smarter....













This is the dog Dee said we will be getting:






So, who woulda thunk a dog like this would need rescuing? We appropriated (military jargon) him from a moron with a passle of mean kids and after 2 months he`s a different dog. "Digger" is half Shitzu and half Dachshund. He`s already learning to retrieve and he thinks he`s 5 feet tall, so maybe he`ll make a hold dog for the wild boars if I get to hunt with John in Ca.
Hehe, niter nite boyz, heheheheheheheheheheheheheheh.

Think the wifey will let me take him hunting?

Ya' know what they say

"he thinks he's 5 feet tall". It ain't the size of the dog in the fight. It's the size of the fight in the dog! He looks dangerous to me.

Sorry about your old pal.

He would be dangerous

if he was the size of a St Bernard, cause he`d drown you in a slobber-bath.
A few weeks ago he was slamming into the storm doors trying to get at the deer in the orchard. We finally let him out, figuring the deer would "read to him from the scriptures".
For a dog that appears to have no legs, he crossed the orchard in record time, and was at the deers heel`s before they knew it. He ran them off and I`ve had little in the way of broken branches lately.

Now if I could just figure out what I could use him to hunt for that would`nt get me in the doghouse.......

I don't know what the Shih Tzu half will be able to contribute but the Dachshund is a hunting breed. The Dachshund was developed to hunt animals such as the badger, rabbit and fox.

Let me say this Copperhead:

With all that fur, you have to be very careful about just picking him up and planting a kiss on him... as it`s hard to tell which end is which.........:eek:
Hahahahah. If we let him out it`s nose to ground and you better be ready to follow.
