Almost all the dogs available around here are some version of the Australian Shepherd or various other versions of cattle dogs. They are bright, healthy and intelligent, just far too active and aggressive for me to consider. There are various wimpy "lap dog" things around for sale, occasionally, but they don't appeal to me either. I want a Welsh Corgi.   The "rescue" kind cost as much as a purebred pup. I just don't have that kind of money. sigh

Yeah, see, I LOVE active, bright, aggressive nippers.  My current is only part cattle dog, and yet I get a few scratches and scars from him every time we wrestle good and hard.  And it keeps us both healthy enough not to grow old and die and stuff. :P

Well, love them or not, I'm already too old to wrestle anything... and can't afford to hire someone to take a dog on a ten mile run each day. :) To each his/her own.

Good to see you back!!! Missed you.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I thought that ML would be interested.

Feds prepare to end wolf protections in Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- The federal government plans to announce an end to protections for wolves in Wyoming later this month.
Spokesmen from some environmental groups say they plan to review the final wolf delisting rule carefully when it's issued Aug. 31. They say legal challenges are likely over the state's plan to classify wolves as predators that can be shot on sight in most areas.

Yes, many of us are watching that carefully.

Of course... some just SSS...

Another good reason to come to Wyoming.

Wyo. may loosen gun laws  http://www.wyomingnews.com/articles/2012/12/23/news/19local_12-23-12.prt

While the rest of the nation debates tighter gun-control restrictions following the Sandy Hook shooting, proposals are looming for the upcoming Legislative session that would do just the opposite.

By Trevor Brown

CHEYENNE -- Proposals to loosen gun regulations are likely to emerge when the Legislature convenes in early January.

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is spurring national leaders to call for tighter federal gun-control laws. But several Wyoming legislators say they are planning to sponsor legislation that would do the opposite.

Incoming Speaker of the House Tom Lubnau, R-Gillette, said he is drafting legislation that would end gun-free zones.

He said he still is working on the details and the bill has not yet been filed. But he said it could include allowing teachers and other staff to have guns in schools.

Excellent post by someone planning to move to Wyoming.

http://www.fundamentalsoffreedom.com/fswforum/index.php?topic=14474.0;topicseen
 Come to terms with the idea of moving to Wyoming.  There are precious few guarantees in life, but here are a couple that will apply to this move: a) Wyoming is not a utopia.  It has its problems.  It has bad weather.  It has horrific wind.  It can be difficult to find a good job.  It is populated by its share of jerks, low-lifes, and crazies.  It is not a freehold.  b) land and housing are expensive relative to the rest of the country.  c) You will never have enough money as long as you define your life's satisfaction by a monetary standard (besides, dollars aren't really money anyway). d) Federal law will reach you in Wyoming. e) It is not easy to live in Wyoming for everyone.  f) If your spouse is against the move, your quality of life will suffer.  g) If our society crumbles as most of us believe it will, or if "civil war" breaks out, life in Wyoming will be more difficult, not easier.  h) understand how difficult it is to be "self-sufficient."  It takes a lot of labor to provide for yourself to any significant degree.  A patch of veggies will not see you through the winter.  You may well trade a basically easy life (even in hard times) for a life of physically demanding and emotionally draining hard work, but it will be your life to live - not the government's.
