Speaking of puppies, I have a friend who recently traded a shotgun for a black lab pup, and he named him ruger von pupster. I found the whole thing hilarious when he told me.

I had to laugh. Justin (jdub) named his dog I gave him Remy. If you know Justin at all he beads Case blood. For for him to name his dog that was pretty cool.

Thanks for sharing Gents. If I get another I will likely name it “Sig” as in Sig Sauer.
Appreciate all the posts Gents.

The first puppy we had just after I returned from Viet Nam was a black mixed breed terrier.

We named him CIDG. That's pronounced "Sidge" as in "bridge".

The C.I.D.G. I worked with in Viet Nam were The Civilian Irregular Defense Group, made up mostly of Montagnards and Cambodians. Fantastic troops, for the most part.

CIDG lived to be seventeen. He and I were out in the driveway one day. I think I was washing cars. I watched him walk around the corner of the house, heading toward the front porch and that was the last we ever saw of him. He simply vanished.

Not to single one out but Justin’s post hit home for me. Beautiful dog Justin and good on you Keith. Congratulations to both my friends.

Jdub wrote:Here is Remington. Chocolate Lab of course. Dog came all the way from Muleshoe TX. Kieth gifted her to my kids. But she has become my dog. Best big dog I believe I have ever had. She is great with my kids which are 8-5-3. We were talking one day and we were talking how the kids need a dog. He began to tell me about this pup he had picked out of his litter and was gonna keep for himself..... well as you can see that didn’t work out like he planned. He drove the dog all the way from Muleshoe TX to Unicoi TN. Thank you kindly kieth we all appreciate her.

My 11 year old chocolate lab was sick a couple weeks ago. Clogged nostrils and no energy. Figured it was a respitory thing but her stomach was swollen.
Basically within one week (who knows how long it was brewing), full blown cancer and internal bleeding. Too week and old for surgery or treatment. I asked doc what you do if it was your dog. I trust this doc very much. Kind of expected the answer. I loved that dog. In shock a bit. Figured her time was coming given her age but did not expect to have to put her down that day.

Lost a good friend that day.

My other dog just doesn’t understand why she is not there. Freaked out.

They say animals don’t have souls therefore cannot go to heaven. Could be misquoting that but I heard opinions on this.
Personally, I cannot believe a creature God made is not allowed in heaven. No reply required as I am not trying to start a theological discussion. Just mourning.

Miss her greatly. She was my best friend. Hope God has a spare shotgun I can borrow in heaven assuming I keep on the straight and narrow.

Attached pic is Nikki in the desert with me a few months back.

Thank buddy, i appreciate that. Sorry about your dog..

My wife and I have had cats in the house for over 43 years and this is our latest, Sophie. As you can see, one of her main jobs is security. Just go ahead and reach your hand in there and try to take one of my knives. You will be "greeted" by a mouthful of sharp fangs. LOL Actually she is 1 1/2 years old and is very friendly, except if you happen to be a bug or other invader getting into "her" house. Then you are dealt with harshly. She patrols every corner of every room each morning and keeps a sharp eye on the neighborhood squirrels outside to prevent them from getting in. We got her from our local rescue shelter group after someone had abandoned her near a local football stadium. Most people that see her say "that racoon tail does not go with the rest of her outfit." And NO, I don't lock her in there at night!
