This is way off topic, but I live near Red Rock / Stead and I'm looking for a pond or some type of water where I can take my pup swimming. There's signs posted all around Silver Lake (which actually has water right now) and I don't think the golf course people would let me use theirs. Any others around that I can get access to?

I thought I heard there was but haven't seen them. What road do you go off to head in the right direction? Near the end of Stead by the wrecking yard, the end of virginia, towards Golden Valley, or more towards Reno? Any input would be useful - I'll just go exploring for them sat or sunday.

Cool, if you have some time this weekend or one night this week I'd appreciate it if you could show me where they are. They have water year around or just when it's wet?

Either works for me. Isn't friday pizza night? You go to that? My wife's out of town through sunday so I'm pretty free this weekend (no house-chores!). Just let me know when/where to meet you. I'm off work about 5 tomorrow so I could be ready by 5:30 or so, or I should be free all day saturday. Only issue could be that I'm supposed to pick up my bow from the shop probably on saturday so I may have to go into town to pick that up. Buy friday night or sat morning should be great.

Bush guard is funny.

I just realized it's getting dark not long after six. Wanna try for a little earlier like 5:30? Not that I'm afraid of the dark or something....

That's only partly true

I'll have my pup with me so she'll protect me I'm sure. Labs are pretty vicious

lol yea they are known to be pretty mean :) mine was mean enough to get into a car with some unknown guy and he was never seen again :(

March 24th, 2005, 06:42 PM
That really sucks. I've heard that as part of her training I should have a person that I know, but she doesn't recognize, pull up in a car, open the door, then beat the crap out of her when she gets in the car - teach her not to get in strange cars. Know anyone mean enough to beat the crap out of a lab pup though?

March 24th, 2005, 06:46 PM
not me :(

Tell ya what, after having this dog I'll never be without one again! I'm going to use her for hunting, but a lab is such a good family dog too that I think she'd be great for anyone that can handle a big dog.

Theres a pond off of Senca which is off of old 395. Just follow Seneca until it turns to dirt, and then until you find water.

dye_dan

Yep, that's the one we went to. Dog took to swimming quickly, and I picked up a garbage bag full of trash, but it hardly made a dent :mad: I hate people (well, just most people)

If anyone ever wants to go on a litter cleanup I'm in!

It figures, since it's so close to a road anyone can get there. I went to the upper reservoir sunday and it was a bit cleaner.
