Bert was half black lab, half german shepherd, and half chow.

Yeah, . . . he was a dog and a half. At 125 lbs, he intimidated everyone but those of us who knew him, . . . but was afraid of the possum that came and stole feed from him whenever he was in the area.

If I could do it all over again, . . . another hunter/friend/companion/guard dog just like him would be a good choice.

Another good choice is a Norweigan Elkhound. They have a bit of a wolf look to them, . . . but are one of the smartest of all breeds. The only thing they will not do is assume an "attack on command" identity. They will protect all that is theirs, . . . but on their schedule. They are absolutely excellent hunters.

May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God!
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher!
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a Veteran!
