Meet Maggie

My new setter, from Scott Berg's fine kennel. She already moves confidently with head and tail high. She was walking around in the back yard earlier this afternoon when a strange noise came from next door. She stiffened up into a perfect puppy point.

CA revised striped bass regs shot down

At a meeting of the California Fish and Game Commission today, the proposed regulations I wrote about last week failed to pass in a reported 0 yea - 4 nay vote.

Hear, hear!

Now, if we can figure out a way NOT to de-water the Sacramento - San Joaquin Delta, maybe we will have a productive and continuing fishery.

Heartland Dog Stakes

Before heading for Montana last Summer, I decided that I needed a good set of stake outs for the dogs. I found an excellent product from Heartland Dog Stakes, offered in steel or stainless steel.

I used the steel Heartland stakes at camp in Montana and since then while hunting and field trailing. They work very well, don't bind, and the cables have never come loose. I recommend them. The only improvement I can think of that would make them easier to use is to cover the metal crimps with a heavy heat shrink tube to make them more comfortable to handle.

Here's where to get them...
