Re: How Do You Display Ribbons and Trophies?

I think a can of air could deal with most of the dust that would accumulate. Me, most of my ribbons are in a priority mail box right now. :oops: I used to pin them on the wall. I keep my certificates in a binder in plastic sleeves for accessible showoff-ness without taking over my wall. And the only...

Re: Harness rubbing fur?

It might be the fit. I've had harnesses rub when they were improperly fitted. You can try wrapping with pipe foam and then going over that with electrical tape. Its kind of tricky to do it well, though. I buy my harnesses pre-pipe foamed from Browndog Design.

Re: Dirty Petco?

Our pet superstores are usually pretty clean. The one thing I've noticed from time to time is a lot of urine on endcaps and the like. But that could be the result of one dog with a jackass owner who isn't paying attention and letting it urinate everywhere. ETA: I worked for PetCo when I was a teenag...

Re: Tucker tried lure coursing today ...

That is so awesome. The descriptions work almost as well as pictures. lol I wish we had lure coursing somewhere near here. I'm hoping to find a place for us to try it when we get back to Tulsa. :)

Re: TESS CD!!!

Sometimes I forget that there are folks here who have AKC breeds. When you said Tess CD, I was thinking UCD. And lord knows why I missed the UWP when you listed her full name. Fail. Sorry. :oops: FWIW, I agree with you. For them to add extra requirements, they need to at least print off a damn certi...

Re: TESS CD!!!

I know how you feel about this by your posts on the UKC board, but you're not even tempted to put a URO1 (and UWP) on her for Superdog? You've already got the hardest stuff out of the way, at least by my book. ;) Congrats!

Uh oh. A Brown Dog pulling in a Brown Dog harness? Glad you're not in my pulling region. ;) Missy knows weight pull better than some of us know our names.

Re: Heads Up UKC weight pullers...

We've worked hard for our UWPCH with Terra and are now at 95 pts of 100. So I anticipate finding one more UKC pull so we can get those last 5 points. I wouldn't be against continuing to pull for fun. But our UKC pulls used to be a minimum of 6 hours away, and now both TX clubs are done with UKC WP, ...

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

Mike, I think the purpose is to kill it, not so much muck with it. I'm sure these guys wouldn't bother to keep captive hogs if they didn't need them to school young dogs. But I can respect your opinion here. Its not exactly a picturesque thing. There's no way to paint it up all pretty. Hunting hogs ...

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

Why not train them in the field? I shall echo what most have said with the disclaimer that I've never hunted hog. But as I understand it, it would be dangerous to take an untried dog into that kind of situation. Adult hogs can kill a human, so relying on a green dog to do a job its never been train...

Re: 9 lbs. CHIHUAHUA pulling 900+ lbs

I'd imagine a lot of smaller dogs of breeds prone to luxating patellas would have a hard time doing weight pull. Wish we could get more breeders on board for breeding their little dogs for weight pull. Maybe the rears would improve. :)

Very very cool.

Re: Title collectors, your dog's FULL name?

Leslie, who knows if Terra will ever be a UCDX. That title was a killer. *dies* I'd like for her to be a Superdog someday, though. She stunned the hell out of me with her scores on that URO1. Little bean has been doing ADBA all year, and she pulled off a 96, 98 and 97. Loki's last leg on her URO1 wa...

Re: Need Soft Crate Advise

This thread just made me LOL. I was at a weight pull and there was a Staffy bull waiting in one of those soft-sided crates like the red ones above. He kept leaning on the side and chortling, and the crate was rolling away. It was hilarious. I should clarify that my soft-sided crate actually has a lo...
