    Yeah, any time now she'll poop a parasite out of her front butt. Then you'll be obliged to care for said parasite until it's 18.

    You guys have me thinking, I should get some real weights on my trailer. Spec is 448 tongue, 5000 gross, and 3766 dry. I have a battery and generator on the tongue to consider now, as well as full tanks, solar panels on the roof, etc.

    I've always had mutts. If I was going to get a 'breed' of dog it'd be an Irish Setter. My dad had one when I was a kid and he had a split personality. A real doofus around the house, but any time my dad took the shotgun off of the gun rack that dog was at attention.

    Yep, they switch modes when they know they're going out.
    The English is a bird machine, but with the amount of ticks we have down here it's not too enjoyable anymore.

    They're neurotic dogs; the GF's parents have had a few and if they're awake they need to be on a mission

    It's a good trait if you actually have something to hold their focus all day, (like maybe herding sheep, lol) but if not they can be a handful.

    Yeah, not really an ideal dog if you leave for work at 6AM and get home 530-6PM.

    Granted, most dogs wouldn't do great in that situation, which is why we don't have a dog currently. I'd also feel bad leaving it alone for that long.

    I have an unusual mind and a large vocabulary. Makes for some odd turns of phrase sometimes.

    I will have a similar problem when our current dog dies. When we got her the GF and I worked odd hours and there was never nobody home with the dog for more than a couple of hours at a time. Now we both work the same schedule you've got, basically. Both leave the house at 6:30 or so and neither of us gets home until around 5:30 or so. Since she's older Weez doesn't mind that much (she just sleeps on the couch and wakes up around 1 to bark at the postman), but a younger dog? Forget it.

    Train your dogs with hide and seek, and how to find your gf and yourself. It is a great game and really works a dog out much harder than any long walk. When we have bad weather my wife just plays hid and seek for like 20 minutes with our 5 dogs and they go nuts for it (they get a tiny treat when they find her, or she will just hide some around the house) but after they are passed out. It also helps them learn to use their noses better and you will notice on walks they are sniffing more than they normally do. My dogs now track animals in the woods and they used to just run around like idiots.
