    Default Getting a new "puppy".

    Once again it's time for us to get another puppy for the house. We have had 4 dogs since the last time it was my turn to choose the breed, etc. So I have started looking online at various breeds and breeders. So far my choice is a male Russian Caucasian Mountain Dog. The price is a little more than what we usually pay for our dogs but I really want one of these, either in gray or white.

    Here's a few pics for anyone unfamiliar with the breed, also any suggestions to help me convince the wife would be appreciated.

    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    Yea, because that's a lot of dog....

    I've already started one spring/summer project. I am building a motorcycle from the frame up. I have ordered a Softail frame, 117 cubic inch engine, six speed transmission, rims, tires, gas tanks, and a few other parts. So far I've spent a bit more on some parts than I wanted to but the quality should make up for it, a buddy that runs a shop and builds custom bikes is letting me do the work at his shop, he's trying to talk me into building a chopper, but I doubt if I do. I want something I can jump on and ride 500 miles if I feel like it.

    That's cool. Good therapy.

    My husband is collecting vintage Triumph parts this winter, he's going to a swap meet on Sunday. He's selling his Harley in the spring, he wants to build a Cafe Racer style bike. He's looked at the new Triumphs and he's torn, he likes the building process but likes the dependability of a new bike too. He's not really looking for a long haul bike anymore, more a vintage short hopper.

    I hope you start a thread and post pictures of the bike in the process, that would be cool. :thumbup:

    The bike build is going to have to be put on hold for awhile, I had a Dr. appointment today and I've developed an incisional hernia from where they took my Spleen out. It measures 8x7.5 inches, and will require surgery to repair. Hopefully within the next 2 weeks.

    Wow, sorry to hear that. Sometimes it seems like it never ends. The good thing is that it is a fairly straightforward surgery. You'll be healed in time for riding season.

    The other surgery was supposed to be straight forward as well and we both know how that went.....

    I'm not convinced that this isn't two people in a dog suit.

    My wife would never let me get a long haired dog. She already complains about the hair that falls off our boxer. She has undiagnosed OCD I'm convinced.
