Tuff on the dog C, Guessing Eb is one of the black ones I met?
I like my dog more than most people, hate chit like this
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

Not that dogs fault except for being a pitbull. We think someone tried to come into our backyard and then heard our dogs inside and left. They left the side gate open which I haven't used in a month and when the wife got home let them out. They were in the backyard until our neighbor was walking down the street with his dog and they saw him. My dog approached and the neighbor wasn't able to get his dog inside fast enough and his dog got to mine. Felt bad because the guy is in his 50s and was trying to keep the pitbull and my dog apart and ended up knocking him down.

My bad. I was just checking on the yard and making sure everything was still growing correctly.

Yeah sounds like the owner was doing the right thing. Dogs will fight, no matter the breed. Just assumed it was your typical pit attack.

Just wanted to let everyone know that it is not cancer. We still have some work to do to reverse the lover damage, but the prognosis is good. Thanks to everyone for the prayers.

I am glad the outlook is good for the dog. Lover damage? Which one of those pervs has been alone with your dog?

Your gate could have been left open by a meter reader. Had one leave my gate open once. They pulled it so it looked closed at a glance but not far enough for it to latch. I had to chase down three dogs that day.

We saw a good number of ducks Wednesday and Thursday. Mostly mallards and pintail. There are few hanging around today trying to ride it out. We still have everything flooded and won't start out drawdown for another week or so. The two fields we will drain first are going to be planted early in order to flood as early as possible next fall. The management plan for each year finishes with the start of next years plan. Some fields will remain flooded until mid April. We do our best to ensure that birds have a better chance at returning to their nesting ground as fat and healthy as possible.

Do you get big concentrations of geese on the way back north?

Thank you, Bryers.
Read all 50 pages a few days ago. Enjoyed most.
Thank's again, for trying to keep those birds as fat and healthy as possible.

:thumbsup: those waters ought to be teaming with inveterate life as they warm up. Waterfowl-especially hens returning to lay eggs-need that protein source after the long winter. :thumbsup: Always interested in how you run things at the farm. Kudos for the thread followups. :beer:

It's very rare in our flooded fields. The return migration started weeks ago. When they head back north they tend to use a different corridor in the flyway. We will get them in dry fields, but few and far between in our flooded fields.

So interesting. They stop on the way down during season. Now that's it's done and they're relatively safe, they switch it up.
