    Bummer man. Hopefully they remove and and get him back on his feet ASAP
    Life can only be lived fully when it's lived outside of fear. Pain hurts, but the fear of pain paralyzes.

    A large part of teaching a puppy is just letting them bump and chase, bump and chase. It is impossible to put prey drive in them. You just encourage it at this point. Eventually they learn that they are not going to catch the bird. Then they start stalking in to get to the bird, still the bird flushes when they get too close. Then they learn to point when they find the magic distance. It is instinctive not something you can train them to do. It often takes several hundred birds to make a good bird dog. The key is showing them the birds.

    Its 75° in the house. Do i really want to turn on the AC to cool it down before bedtime? Spending money on AC in November just doesnt seem right.

    Dont get me wrong. It was a glorious day and i loved it.

    I just turned my dog loose and he found the birds. Seems like you are working harder at it than I am.

    Thanks. What if you have 2 pups out at the same time, how do you keep them from playing with each other instead of getting down to business?

    MRI showed appendix enlarged but still in normal range... surgeon wanted to wait and keep him there tonight since it's not definitive appendicitis but could become that??? He had all the textbook symptoms, but they were not sure.... Pretty frustrating.

    I took lil bro there but they wouldn't let him in the room by being under 14 and flu season, blah blah.... Jodi brought lil bro home while I hung out with Trey for a while and then she wanted to spend the night with him, so I'm home with Court.

    When I left, his pain level was down to 4-5 from a 8-9.... who knows?? I'm pretty sure he and Jodi are sleeping now.... I just want them home.
