Default Feeling the Heat

This is what my wife goes thru every morning. Not 6:30 AM yet. My wife would like to read the news, and make it through her first cup of coffee.
Allie and Emma want breakfast.
Mom makes them a special chicken, rice and peas breakfast, btw.

Hey, it's the family, yes?! Nice to see that everyone likes to start the day off right. I'm sure your wife wouldn't have it any other way. Nice photo. Thanks for sharing it.

You should see Emma, the one on the Left, when I get the E-collar out for a quail walk. She gets highly animated, and very upset if she doesn't get to wear it. Emma doesn't need the E-collar, but Allie does. If I put the collar on Allie, Emma totally freaks out, and throws a fit.
So, I have to keep a dummy collar in the box, and fit hers first. Then she settles down enough that I can put the real one on Allie.
Also, I can pick up a shotgun, or I can pick up a hunting hat. No big deal. If I pick up a shotgun AND a hunting hat - Huge deal!
No, these dogs aren't spoiled much.

Allie got to hunt in Idaho this last year. One whole week of pheasants, grouse and even an occasional Hun.
She struggled a bit in the beginning, learning to hunt a new type of habitat, but by day three, she was a bird hunting machine!

My dogs have similar reactions to having training collars put on them, and know they aren't going out to hunt if they don't get their "suits."

Hey, did you run into porcupines in Idaho? Or rattlesnakes?

Nope. Been lucky on both. I've hunted the same area for over 20 years, and never had an encounter with either.
I've only had one rattlesnake encounter while hunting, and that was in Northen Nevada on a chukar hunt.
I made a hat band out of him.

Audrey has cooked chicken and rice for Ike the last couple of mornings. He ate a dead bird in the yard and it gave him some digestion issues. I just get cereal even if I have digestive issues

Treat them like family, feed them like family

Dogs are like grandchildren you must not spoil them but, you can indulge them. Of course I never spoil either my dogs or my grandchildren, my wife would disagree.
