My Brittany is 5 1/2 now and I him innoculated the first time at 11 months.

It's protocol of: 1st time is two shots (30 days apart.)....then an annual booster shot every 12 months. My dog has not ever had any negative effects from the vaccine.

The company is: Red Rock Biologics headquarted out of Calif. (Very interesting Web Site. ) The vaccine (like EH said) is very much "like an insurance policy". (its effective for all 12 species of ratters that are common in AZ.....EXCEPT....The Green Mohave Rattler, which injects a Venom that is classified as a NEURO TOXIN---one that attack the Nervous System of the victim and is fatal over 90% of the time on humans and almost 100% on dogs. If a dog gets hit by a "regular" (not Mohave) rattler ( there is really no way to determine if it is a "DRY BITE" or not. The vaccine gives you about an additional 8 hours to get the dog to the vet. If it is a "wet Bite", the toxic effect from the venom is reduced by about 50% and reduces he possibility of death by at least 50% or more. I've seen the result of bird hunting dogs down in AZ that have been struck (wet bite) by a Western Diamond back and not taken to a vet in time. The amount of tissue distruction and disfigurement is shocking----if the dog lives.....they are never the same after a full dose wet bite!!

The most dangerous rattle snake bite is from a young snake.......until they are fully mature, they cannot control the amount of venom they release when they bite.....sooo the dog (or you) get a FULL dose----which is bad. Adult rattlers can control the amount. from a very little to a "full shot"....all depends upon the circumstances of the encounter.

Regarding No-seeums: Yes we have them by the JILLIONS this year in the Missoula/Bitterroot Valley area. Attributed to the abnormally wet spring and early summer.

It approx 850 miles Windsor to Missoula......considering a fuel stop, lunch stop and tourist traffic in route.......I'm "gonna guess" 13 hours....."Now be honest on this, & let us know accurately......how long it takes you." I've done the Boulder, CO to Missoula area about 20 times over the last 30 years and it always takes longer than I anticapate. And don't forget: Wyoming "Smokey Bears" just "love" to nail Colorado drivers. Drive safe........................

Reziac, that was a fun list of things and places to look through and brought back some memories.

Re Pomeroy's sculptures in Billings. I remember when I was a child in Havre, living next to Lyndon Pomeroy's parents. Years later, when I was in high school in Helena, our chorus went to the state music festival that was in Billings, and I was randomly assigned to stay with the Lyndon Pomeroy family. He likes the color of rust. There were rusted pieces of metal everywhere in the part of the house where I stayed. I suddenly realized that the rusted metal buffalo sculpture that was put up in front of Northern Montana College in Havre, when I was a kid, was made by Pomeroy.

Rattlesnake bites. I first started getting my dogs vaccinated for bites based on my Son-in-laws experience. He had a dog get bit and it run him about $800 and the dog was saved. He started getting his bird dogs vaccinated. Another dog go bit and it cost him less then $200 and the dog was saved. Less tissue damage, less trauma on the critter, less time at the vet. Just made sense to me. $20 worth of prevention to save a friend, companion, hunting partner and biscuit thief.

When my parents got tired of using a tent for camping, they bought a very small camper trailer that we would take out in the summer for camping. It was the '60's. My dad retired in 1968, and I, the youngest of 7, went off to college soon after. There was a couple across the street from them who had a boat, and as my dad was kind of at a loss what to do without work to go to, he traded the camper for the boat. He would go out to Canyon Ferry with the dog and fish. I never in my wildest dreams thought my dad would own a boat. He would bring home more big trout than my mother could run through the smoker, and their deep freeze was full of fish. She even canned some of it, trying to store it all.

Just spent the afternoon with the kids at Black Sandy swimming and having a good time. Saw a nice trout rise, but alas throwing my son at it is not a good substitute for proper tackle.

He didn't appreciate it at the time, but I did. (my son- not the trout )

A boat is a hole in the water you pour money in to.

Would I like to have a boat? Sure. I can borrow the neighbors any time.

There are two great days for a boat owner. The day he/she purchases the wonderfule boat. And the day he/she sells the boat.
