My twin brother's so ugly we have to tie a bone around his neck to get the dog to play with him.

Our dogs will play with anything that smells rotten

OM45GE - Posted - 07/09/2012:  09:50:21



I know. It seems every time I give Toby a bath and clip him (I keep him in a field cut) he finds something well and truly dead to roll in and stink it up.

dat - Posted - 07/09/2012:  09:52:47



our dogs have always loved the pasture roll after a fresh bath to get them smelling pretty

OM45GE - Posted - 07/09/2012:  09:57:53



Then they want some loving from Dad.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/09/2012:  10:07:11



When Buddy, my last Springer, was a pup, he ran off into the marshy area behind the house I lived in back then. When he came back about 15 minutes later, he looked fuzzy and bigger somehow. When he got closer I saw that he had gotten into a burr bush and was covered from head to toe. As he got even closer, I could see that he was dripping wet and had obviously gone mudding. When I finally got my hands on him I could tell that he’d rolled in a really nasty carcass. He'd been a busy boy.



I spent 45 minutes picking the burrs off him and gagging from the stench. Then I gave him a good bath so that you could get within 10 feet of him. I was tempted to just shoot him and be done with it.



 



dat - Posted - 07/09/2012:  10:15:52



and I'll bet he was as proud as he could be

OM45GE - Posted - 07/09/2012:  10:34:41



Yeah, he was almost levitating he was so happy. I was doing the same for a different reason. dead

dat - Posted - 07/09/2012:  10:42:27



do ya'll have these?



 





The Cocklebur has a reputation as a noxious weed. Farmers and gardeners have been battling the aggressive plant since colonial times. Besides its ability to out compete most garden and field crops, cockleburs are quite toxic as young seedlings and have been known to poison livestock.



Cocklebur plants produce little football-shaped burs, about one inch (2.5 cm) long and covered with stiff, hooked spines. Each cocklebur fruit contains two seeds that may remain viable for many years. The prickly burs hook into your clothing and become tightly attached. Often the vicious burs form tangled clots in the fur of animals, and must be cut out of the hair. These prickly burs have enabled the cocklebur plant to hitchhike all over the world. 


 


 



The Cocklebur inspired the invention of Velcro®



 

DeanT - Posted - 07/09/2012:  11:03:40



I can't remember my greyhounds ever getting burrs... their hair is too short. But they don't hesitate to eat rabbit poo

OM45GE - Posted - 07/09/2012:  11:28:35



I've seen cockleburs but not in New England. The burrs I posted are bushes that grow up to five or six feet tall and they're COVERED in those burrs. They attach to skin, clothes, fur, p almost anything. I was cleaning some out of my backyard and one stuck to the bottom of a Kevlar canoe.

DeanT - Posted - 07/09/2012:  11:31:35



One of the perks of living in the city... notalotaburrs

Horses tails and mains are cuckle bur magnets

DeanT - Posted - 07/09/2012:  15:32:29



Are there horse groomers like there are dog groomers?

OM45GE - Posted - 07/09/2012:  15:56:44



That's one of the joys of horse ownership!

DeanT - Posted - 07/09/2012:  16:11:17



My sister used to make me brush her horses, before I could ride them. I was a stable slave.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/09/2012:  16:14:07



My riding buddy grooms several of the stable owners horses to offset her horse's board. Personally, I'd rather ride OPH.

DeanT - Posted - 07/09/2012:  19:06:15



My sister went on to operate a farm of her own with horses and all kinds of animals. I turned 18 and moved to the city. Still a fool for the city!

OM45GE - Posted - 07/10/2012:  04:32:58



I work in Cambridge and LOVE the city vibe. Boston is like a big college town. I would live here if I could afford it.

DeanT - Posted - 07/10/2012:  07:18:04



I'm not a fan of the country... bugs, dirt, dust, more bugs, critters, mud, more bugs, more critters.... and you can't walk down to the corner store for a iced mocha...

dat - Posted - 07/10/2012:  07:52:34



I kinda like riding a 4 wheeler better than riding a horse

OM45GE - Posted - 07/10/2012:  10:07:12



I can walk to two different grocery stores, the pharmacy, several banks and restaurants, the train station and downtown in 15 minutes. I like that.

DeanT - Posted - 07/10/2012:  10:08:11



City bus for me... or my car :)  A corner store is about 80 yards from my house. 4 pawn shops within a mile, and within two miles is groceries and every food joint known to man.

My best friend lives on about 80 acres in northern New Hampshire. It's a lovely spot but you have to drive 1/2 an hour to everything..

dat - Posted - 07/10/2012:  10:26:47



I can get to the gas station at the edge of town in about 15 min or less, about 2 or 3 more minutes to the grocery store,   I'm far enough out of town to get away, but close enough to get there pretty quick ifin we need something.   it's getting to where they are building more and more houses out towards our house though.                                      



 



about time to move to a less populated area

DeanT - Posted - 07/10/2012:  10:32:44



I could live in a high rise condo downtown and be perfectly happy!  

dat - Posted - 07/10/2012:  10:53:14



my sister is like that, she used to run around barefoot and climb trees, now she lives in Dallas and is "Miss Cittified Uptown Lady"    she loves being right in the middle of everything.  

OM45GE - Posted - 07/10/2012:  12:22:00



I do like to be able to walk in the woods and let the dog run free. Fortunately I have that within walking distance too.

DeanT - Posted - 07/10/2012:  16:10:10



I wouldn't call my self uptown... more like slumpuppy

OM45GE - Posted - 07/10/2012:  16:13:50



I can't afford to be uptown.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 07/10/2012:  20:30:34


I'm a suburbanite. Pretty much have to drive everywhere.

If I'm going to do this much driving I'd rather be in the country.

DeanT - Posted - 07/11/2012:  00:27:14



I can only afford to go uptown... the bus stop is about 50 yards from my house...

OM45GE - Posted - 07/11/2012:  04:40:23



I used to live in a mid-sized city (around 100,000 people). My job was four blocks away, the train station a few blocks further and everything you could need within about the same distance. It was great. When that job ended I had a 90 mile one-way commute. Not so good.

I couldn't even imagine living in a town that size, 30,000 is big.    our last population sign says 4,383 and it is getting to be to much on the big side

DeanT - Posted - 07/11/2012:  07:06:42



Our sign says 300,000. Wichita is the biggest city in Kansas. Don't forget, most of Kansas City is in Missouri.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 07/11/2012:  08:41:19


The city where I grew up was around 150,000. In the "greater area" closer to 200,000 (there's two smaller towns right near that sort of all sprawl together). Definitely not a small town. But certainly everything was pretty close.

DC is a whole different experience.

dat - Posted - 07/11/2012:  09:27:31



to get to my house you have to drive down the dirt road....'till you hear a banjo

OM45GE - Posted - 07/11/2012:  09:28:12



We almost have one big city that runs from DC up to Boston with few interruptions.



 

DeanT - Posted - 07/11/2012:  09:56:34



Even in our big city if you drive 10 minutes in any direction from center, you are out in the wheatfield boonies 

dat - Posted - 07/11/2012:  10:08:38



that wouldn't be bad,   my sisters house you drive ten min and you haven't made it to anywhere except maby to the highway, it's at least an hour from her house to anything that wouldn't be called city if the traffic isn't bad

OM45GE - Posted - 07/11/2012:  10:34:37



My current home town is about 33,000. Up here in the Northeast the towns pretty much abut one another so it's not like you can drive out of town and be in farm land or the woods.

dat - Posted - 07/11/2012:  10:47:56



How do you stay sane

DeanT - Posted - 07/11/2012:  16:01:36



I could live down town NY and love it

OM45GE - Posted - 07/11/2012:  16:39:23



I'm with Dean, but we do have lots of woodlands and hiking trails.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/11/2012:  16:41:35



We're also only an hour or two away from huge swaths of national forest and very rural areas. My best friend is 90 minuts away and lives on almost 20 acres that backs up on several hundred acres of woodland.

DeanT - Posted - 07/11/2012:  19:02:59



If I lived above a Pizza Hut, in down town NY, I would never even have to leave the building....

OM45GE - Posted - 07/12/2012:  04:46:04



LOL

dat - Posted - 07/12/2012:  07:26:00



a pizza hut close would be nice, one bad thing about where we live is you don't get a good hot pizza unless you cook it, they don't deliver out our way and by the time we drive to town and pick one up and drive home it isn't hot.



Pappa Murphy's is pretty good and we get it hot out of the oven

DeanT - Posted - 07/12/2012:  07:27:59



I thought my dog had a bloody nose last night... but then I saw the pan of spaghetti that my wife let him lick out....



Within two miles of my house we have two pizza huts, Pappa Johns, Pappa Murphys, and Dominos
