The nine day overlap of dove and quail season in the South Zone is heaven for bird hunters.
With the opening of the North Zone tomorrow, thousands of Texans will be heading afield in search of dove. Lucky hunters will enjoy the companionship of a dog. It is critical to watch your dog closely for heat exhaustion. Many retrievers are also house dogs and have been inside so […]
Such an amazing dog that has enriched and no doubt lengthened my life. A bit standoffish at first, she has warmed up to me and Eileen a lot in five years. Sometimes, she still thinks she is a puppy and curls up in her tiny puppy bed. Other times, she is the Master of the […]
