JL Welcome.

Cool shop cat, so fess up on how he got his name. I'm allergic to cats, sadly, but the neighbors cat likes my shop so he is always encouraged to get mice. One day my Husky was staring at something in the grass, and I told her "if its a mouse, GET IT". She sprung on all four legs and caught the mouse!

Shop... too much clutter, so you have the right place a friends who will be more than glad to help clean up your clutter. I'm realizing we need to downsize in a few years, starting to thin out stuff about my house.

Windy,
Actually it got to the point where I could not do projects quickly because it was such a freakin mess. You could not find a damn thing. I'll post a pic and show you what I mean.

I built this bridge in the middle of my "Crap Hole" and finally decided that it I'm cleaning up.

Windy,
My brother had problems with predators. His solution was an anatolian shepherd. He is one of the best dogs I have ever seen. Here is a pic of what they look like.

If I wasn't actively using it would figure out how to get rid of the big lathe I spent years walking around. I got rid of tools I wasn't using and it made a huge difference.

Funny, I bought an Anny puppy about 5 years ago, traveled 500 miles one way to buy her, they are not common here (Anatolian's).

The pic of her, is with the G/S puppy I bought that replaced her. I gave her away, I could not break her of the habit of eating everything I was raising. She was born in a working barn, and as a pup, I raised her in the barn. She loved eating foul. Eggs, half incubated eggs, chicks, ducks, everything except, oh, I dont know, maybe coyote ?

Anyhow, she was a lover, and a great dog, but I could not get her to perform. The G/S dog, I bought from a Shutzhund breeder, he used to eat everything too, but I broke him of that habit, and now he only chases down coyote, but the cats wander off the farm, and the coyote get them. The dog does not wander off the farm, so the cats dont enjoy his protection, while on holiday.
