OMG! Now that is a scary story! Glad you were all right & the dog got the needed medical attention-he sounds like a great protector.

He was a great protector, and a wonderful family dog. My girls rode him like a pony, and teased and tormented him to no end...and Bear ate it up. We finally had to put him down, though. He suddenly got more agressive than we were prepared to deal with - though never with our family. Vet put him down, and said it was likely due to pain. Bear was getting awfully arthritic, and that crack in the skull also caused issues with his ear that caused off and on swelling and pain for years. It nearly killed hubby when we had him put down. (the dog, not the hubby)

Wow When we are up at our property there are guns going off all the time. Mostly our neighbor target shooting. We always wonder which way he is aiming. Our poor dog runs under the trailer at the first shot and shakes there for hours, same with the heavy equipment we can sometimes hear across the valley. What a wimp lol. She loves going up there, whines the whole 3 and a half hour drive, knows when we are packing (have become quite creative at ways to hide it). She gets up there runs around for 20 minutes and then cowers by the trailer door.
We almost lost her a couple of summers ago, there was a wicked thunderstorm, we sat up watching it, it looked like world war 3. Anyhoo we went to bed and when we got up Pepper was gone (she sleeps inside the trailer with us). I guess hubby had gotten up to go pee in the middle of the night and didn't see her go outside (she is black). The storm terrified her, we walked all over calling her to no avail. Well we had to go to town and when we came back she was on the deck all covered in burrs and freaking out. Poor puppy. She will never make a ranch dog lol

I get nervous in hunting season when we go riding as Hunters hide is about the same color as a deer.

Hubby's current dog is a boxer/pit bull mix. She's huge (about 85 pounds, but nowhere near as big as Bear was). She looks like she might take your arm off, and has a very loud, deep bark, so she sounds really vicious. She's the biggest coward you have EVER seen! She makes a good watch dog, but as for protection, forget about it!

We had a guy come out to install our satellite internet system (would NOT recommend WildBlue!). She barked and growled at him every time he moved. Fortunately, he's used to dogs, and he just ignored her - or tried to. When he finally sat down at my desk to do the final step of the installation, Dolly must have decided he was less of a threat, and walked over and put her head in his lap. She refused to move it until he scratched her ears! It was so funny - she went from all growly and threatening, with the hair on her back all ridged up to a wiggly, giggly 85 pound puppy in less than a second. Go figure.

I used to keep everything in my car. I had looked at where Belle is if I had to move Hunter but I don't want everyone using my stuff (luckily it is all locked up in my locker). Do you see any lockers like mine there? I would have to be able to bring it.
that is why I bought my own grooming kit I am taking it with me
Since no one paid to much attention to Annabelle she did not have
Her own and her halter is very old also
They have halters on sale at GreenHawk for $7.95

They do have lockers that lock and Michaela' s step dad is building me a tack locker too for me to use and the other leaser too

Hahaha that sounds like my friends dog Gus. He looks like my Pepper but is about 5 times the size. He is afraid of everything. He is even afraid when they turn hockey on on the TV. He goes and hides in the bathtub. Dumbass dog lol.

I may have a halter for you, I don't think Hunter will ever grow into it lol.
I will look, it is "Hunter" green (of course).

Do you know who the other leaser is?
