Oh, and I got a new intern yesterday, and I don't want to speak too soon, but I already love her.

She's so much better than the old one. In every way.

For the last couple of years family been complaining about how noisy and vibratory my car is so I ordered a new OEM hydraulic passenger side motor mount (($105) from ebay because the internet told me that is what goes bad.

Yesterday afternoon was nice so I put a pump jack under the engine to lift it a couple inches, removed 5 bolts and the old mount, loctited and torqued the new mount in and it worked!

Quiet as a mouse again. The internet was correct.

I like to imagining Jim Moran would do the same thing. WWJD (What would Jim do)

Congrats. If you want to come to my house, I have several things you can fix.

Good news: got a bit of "using the system" struck down the moment it happened, I visit my son imminently (stopped for lunch at Saucehouse first, good place), and I'll be getting an annulment instead of divorce within days as certain actions taken by my ex qualify for fraudulent contract. She'll dislike the aftermath of that but eh, can't win them all. Also bought some nice heavy oak furniture and it looks great but damn is that stuff heavy. And pretty lady, yay.

Wife and I have Wire Fox Terriers. We affectionately call the "Terrorist!" A Golden retriever type is a good bet.

A good read. http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/articles/puppytem...

And good puppy hunting.

Thanks.

I've had Golden Retrievers or golden mixes my whole life. They are the perfect dog IMO.

I actually already have 2 dogs, a Golden and an English Setter, but since we've moved, they are staying with a friend. Our house is deep in the woods, but there is a busy road that runs alongside the property, and if you know anything about Setters, they literally have no boundaries. So, until I can get the fence in they can't come down.

Plus my dogs are a little older. My son loves them so much and misses them so much, I figured it was time to get him a puppy that will pretty much grow up with him. I can keep a puppy contained to the yard better than a full grown older dog (especially the setter). I do hope to bring them to the new place once I finish the fence.

Both of my dogs are pure bred , but I am looking forward to adopting/rescuing a mix if I can find one.

Bart, I understand what you say about a Setter. We had a Irish Setter ( Molly) and she was a hand full to keep inside even a fenced pasture . There was a small lake about 1/2 mile from us and from time to time Molly just had to pay that lake a visit. In the Fall/Winter Ducks would come into this lake and Molly would find a way to get to this lake. One afternoon a young man, neighbor, in his new Red with white interior Monte Carlo came bringing Molly home. I thanked the young man and paid to have his car detailed. As bad as I did not like doing this we got an electric shock collar and it would go off at the boarder of our place. It worked. But I still do not like them.

Lol, I can totally see that. My grandparents had an Irish Setter named Mike when I was a kid. He was such a beautiful dog.

My English Setter, Willie, is the same way. We had a couple of acres with an underground fence at our old house, and he tested it every single day. But it worked. That's what I'm going to put at my new house, but the durn ground has been too muddy to even try right now.

You can see Willie's running paths through our old yard on Google Earth, no joke.

He really is the best dog though....wonderful personality, and he's really great with my son. Willie's 8 years old now, so he's starting to calm down just a little, lol

My Golden is a female, and not much to say about her, other than she is a dam good dog. Pretty much perfect.

OMG!!! I AM so freaking JEALOUS of you right now!!! We had an English setter when I was younger, Benjamin Tarten Tara, we called him Ben. Best dog EVA! He was purchased to be used as a hunting dog but due to some kind of muscle problem he wasn't allowed to go hunting. Friends and I use to hang out at the tressel where there was a big open field, I'd let Ben off his chain and he'd run then stop pointing out birds. Such a beautiful dog and sight!!!

Wow, really? That makes me so happy. They are such great dogs.

They're more used as bird dogs than pets, so it's not very common for someone to have as an actual family pet (if that makes any sense - a buddy, rather than a working dog)

Willie is one of the best blessings of my life. Setters get so excited outdoors because they're bred to be like that, but he is actually one of the most gentle dogs in the world when he comes inside. When my wife was pregnant, he used to always come in every night and lay his head and his paw on her belly. So beautiful.

What did yours look like? Willie is white with spotted blonde ears and blonde on the end of his tail...and a couple of spots here and there on his body.

Ben was white from head to toe with black and brown spots. I haven't seen an English setter around in YEARS!! My Aunt bought one because Ben was such a good dog, she named her Daffy, then later found out Daffy was deaf. She was prolly the sweetest calmest dog I ever met in my life. So cute, my aunt would have to go tap her when it was time to go outside. She looked a lot like Ben but smaller.

As far as the hunting, my brother would have to sneak his guns out of the house when he'd go hunting so Ben wouldn't go nuts. He wasn't allowed to go hunting because a defect that left him in pain for weeks after a weekend of hunting:(

Never had a setter but I've had three dogs. My first was a beagle named radar when I was a small child. He lived a long life, about 12 years.

When I turned 30 I adopted two dogs from the kill shelter. They seemed like cool dogs and it would have been horrible to have them put down. One was named bolo and was a boxer-mastiff mix. He was super chill. The other was a purebred, chipped American Rottweiler the owner gave up because he cost too much in food due to his size, about 140 pounds. Bolo was shot by a poacher mistaking him for a deer about four years after I got him, around age 6 for him. My rottie, named gunny sgt, died of hip displaysia in February of 2014 about age 9. Before he passed I would carry him to his food and water, to use the bathroom, and back to the couch to lapdog it. When I got him to the vet to find it was hip displaysia and he would not survive we spent another week together and I scheduled for him to not hurt anymore. Before he got there he crawled under my 4wheeler barn and went to glory.

Losing bolo and gunny made me not really want to get another dog. It was rough to have them go.
