Hey folks!
Looking forward to the new forum here. Some of you know me as Old earth dog Bob Scott. The only reason I still carry the old earth dog is cause I've not figured out how to drop it on the other forum. Here, I'm just Bob. Well, not necessarily just Bob. Bob will do.
60yrs old. Married almost 39 yrs. Three kids, 5 gkids. I've been a dog person as long as I can remember (sometimes only a few days :D ) My current dogs are Polly, 12yr old Border Terrier. Pete, 10yr old JRT, and Thunder, my 2yr old GSD.
I trained my first dog at 12yrs old (1957). Joined my first obedience classes in 65. Belonged to and trained with/for North St. Louis County Obedience Training Club (NCOTC) through the 80s. Belonged to the St. Louis Kerry Blue Terrier Club in the same period. Started natural earth work with terriers in the 80s through the 90s. Belong to Missouri Earthdogs. In addition to hunting with terriers, Missouri Earthdogs puts on fun days 4-5 times a year at Purina Farms in Gray Sumit Missouri. We also put on the national finals Terrier races for Purins Incredible Dog Challenge. I was involved with SAR for a few years, but left because of political bs and a lack of people that really understood dog training. In the past couple of years I've been involved with Riverfront Working Dog Club www.rwdc.org we train motivationally in Schutzhund. It's a WDA club. Because there are alread USA and DVG clubs in the area, we wanted to add another option for people in the area. In addition to schutzhund, myself and others on the team train for AKC, UKC, Iron Dog titles. Anything that will put a fe initials behind our dogs. We're basically a bunch of title hos :D :D . With my current dog Thunder, I've only gotten to his BH, and next month hope to get his third leg of AKC CD. Titles I've earned in the past are AKC-CH, CD, CDX, UD, TD. Earthdog titles are CG (Certificate of Gameness) from a couple of different terrier organizations. I also have a couple of \"Best Colored Terrier in Show\" from true working terrier conformation shows. Basicall, ANY terrier other than a JRT is classifyed as a Colored dog. My competition in that class are Patterdales, Fells, Jags, and any crossbred WORKING terrier. I know I left something out. I'll bore you with it sooner or later. :wink:

Glad to have you aboard Bob! I wondered why you didn't join with the \"OED\" prefix, but you cleared that up quickly :p

Are you planning on going SchH1 with your GSD? If so, how far off are you?

Dear just Bob (I know, I know; it was there and I had to do it),

I never saw pics of any of your terriers on Leerburg, altho I looked one time, through a TON of bios.

I am hoping to see a pic or two, if you ever get the chance.

As you know, my granddogs are BTs, and I love pics of those \"little guys in the plain brown dog-suit\"!

Also, I don't think I've seen Thunder either.

Anyway, COOL that you have added Mike's site to your rounds! I know you have many sites desiring your presence (seriously), and it's just great to \"see\" you here!

MIke, Thunder got his BH in December 05. Other then his tracking (I'm lazy) he's ready for his one. Our club trains for the 3 and lets the other s just happen.
Connie, I intend to bore everyone to death with pics.......as soon as I figure out how to post them. :oops: :D
I posted my clubs web site. Lots of pics of Thunder there.
Jen, I noticed you posted somewhere else that your an english major. The best advice I can give you when you read my posts it to have plenty of asprin on hand. :lol: :lol: :wink:

It's ok, Bob. Connie is an editor :D . Double whammy! :lol:
I don't mind the errors and I'm trying to be a better person. My Mom says my life will be easier if I stop thinking everyone should be perfect :lol:! Greg is my friend, and he typed \"ain't\" today. See? I'm really working on it. 8) (I made fun of him, sure, but I still call him my friend. That's BIG progress for the \"Grammar Police.\")

I can't even remember half the rules anymore, it's been so long...and reading everyone's bad grammar makes everything fuzzy anyway...

Hi! I figured from reading your posts on Leerburg you had extensive dog background, but it's nice to read your actual history. I sure look forward to your posts here, too. You're not just a smart feller, you are funny too!
