Whos' dogs sleep

Postby openwaterhunter » Sat Oct 08, 2005 7:02 am

Outside? My wife lets me keep Dixie our lab inside during the day while we are here. At night I feed here in her bowl and never give her treats or scraps off the ground or out of our hands because I don't want a dog trying to eat my breakfast everytime I set it down to blast some ducks in the blind. It is getting cooler now and I got cedar shavings to put in her house I sprayed them down with flea killer just to prevent those little buggers from getting started. I have had some people tell me that it hurts there nose and others that say it doesn't. What is you alls take on this "myth"?

I have had three hunting dogs in my lifetime and they all lived outside their whole lives. One of them had a fantastic nose, one had an absolutley awful nose but that was not because he lived outside it was because our bird numbers dropped drastically so he didn't get a chance to do what he was suppose to be doing. And the one I have now is starting ot show alot of promise so we will see. My friend I think you caught wind of an urban ledgend.

cmelik10, you hit the nail on the head.
Urban legands will get you everytime. I always liked the one about putting burnt motor oil on your dog to kill the mange. It will kill the dog before it kills the mange.
