Today we said goodbye to my Dash.
SHR Vermilion Dash Rip Rock JHA NAVHDA Prize I
His splenic mass progressed to a point we could not risk him going further so peacefully we let him go with dignity. During his final months he had a good time with one more run to the hunting lease to tree squirrels and swim in the cool waters of fish creek, trips fishing at the local park, and spoiled at home eating whatever he wanted and getting to lay on the couch. Dash was named after the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame's Dash Rip Rock also from the same South LA area and he did have the personality of a cowboy punk band too. He had been a gift to me from Adele Neupert and became the mascot for her namesake cancer charity after her passing. I worked him through a pointer title, retriever title, natural ability title, and had even won a best of winners 5 point major. He enjoyed hunting everything fur, feather, and big game across several states and I gave him the life we all would want if we were dogs.
Of the more than a dozen hunting dogs I have trained and hunted, none had as close a connection to me as Dash. He was always at my side day and night. My constant companion and best friend. In many ways I feel as if I have lost my shadow. RIP Dash Rip Rock

So sorry for your loss.
Sure hates to lose a member of the family.
He was a splendid dog and I know he had an amazing life.

Sorry to hear that. A new pup always helps with the pain.

So sorry to read this John, Dash was a special friend, family member and dog gone way too soon. Time will help but that special 4 legged friend stays with us and we will miss them for a long time.

I’m so very sorry John.



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

John I know you thought I was being ugly with the Red Bone Bob comment but my first bird dog was a Vizsla and I had folks asking if he was a red wiemer to a red bone hound. I love those red dogs and I am heartily sorry for your loss. I wish I remember who wrote but I agree. I wish I had to replace my shotgun every ten years rather than my dogs.


There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

So sorry for your loss. Dash had one heck of a life for any dog and a spectacular one for a hunting one.
