    Books are seductive. I find that the more I read, the more there is to find out. More pictures! If you have photos of your dad's discharge, post them. We'd be happy to see them.

    Yes the middle one is a red kelpie, smartest and bravest of all dogs IMO

    Usually you get a litter and let them loose amongst sheep, lambs, chickens, ducks or geese and see which ones sniff and play and which ones take to the sheep straight away...they are the ones you train further and sell for a pretty penny, the others go to pet owners.

    Welcome aboard.
    If you like resources and haven't visited it yet hyperwar is an incredible data source. Opana (who posts here on occasion) is one of the instigators I believe and Otto (who owns these boards) is now helping look after the site. Lots of primary docs there.
