   Dad was a veterinarian.  I watched him put down all kinds of animals. His way of hardening me.  Didn't work.  I'm an old softy.  Now I know why some older people say no more pets after they lose a best friend.  It's just too hard.

In a lot of ways our animals are better friends than some humans, there is nothing we can do that our animals will not forgive us for.

Max found us in the woods.  We bonded very quickly.  They call Australian Cattle Dogs "Velcro Dogs"  and that they are.  Like if we shut the bathroom door,  when we come out we bang him in the head.  He HAS to be with at least one of us and is only happy when we're all together.  I get on line and see all these little ACD's up for adoption because people haven't a clue what it takes to raise them.  I'd have acres of them if I had acres.  LOL.

I'm not sure how we're going to handle his passing in the future.

  Neither have I wolfy,  but it doesn't hurt to be cautious when you don't know for sure,  I've bagged wild bore, Russians and Razorbacks and they were good eats, but that was before this epidemic of feral critters.
  I've hunted Squirrel since I was nine years old and didn't know about checking for spots on their livers until a couple of years ago, or that it could be harmful to eat any that had the spots, and never got sick from eating any that might have had them, now that I do know about it I'm paranoid about looking for stuff like that when I'm cleaning any game that I harvest.
  But then again any wild game that I cook gets cooked well done, except for venison tenderloins, steaks. and chops.

My buddy never leaves my side, she sleeps at the garage door where I come inside, waiting. I wish they were here longer, it is a shame they have short lives.

hey crash the tippman sewing company is in IND indionapolis i believe.
mabey get it cheaper there?
I really like the look of the shape and size of the handle. I'd love to see one with a blade of 4' - 4.5"

Hi Yeoman.  I think you're right, 4" would be awesome.  I just ordered another blade from him, a Skookum styled knife.  Maybe sometime next year, I'm going to get one of his larger models. 

It does look like a really good workhorse of a knife.  I tend to shy away from straight handled knives with no guard to prevent running a finger over the edge but other than that it sure looks useful.

Yeah it's was a concern too.  There's a little bit of a swell.  I just have to be extra careful.  But it is nice being right up to the edge, a bit more control- albeit potentially a bit more dangerous.
