Caturday - Special Edition

A reviewer gave the Book of Barkley one star and said it wasn't worth the read.  I figure it was either just some troll that wanted to try to hurt someone because hey are psychologically damaged, someone who projects their own feelings through their dog and wanted a book that did that or, perhaps just a cat person (not that there's anything wrong with that) who happens to be a very militant cat person.  

Operating on the third premise, I'm offering a special Caturday post just for "ol One-Star,"  the giver of bad reviews.

Everybody's entitled to their opinion and no book can please eveyone but there is such a thing as manners.  So, One Star, go back to your parents' basement and don't come back out until you can bring some with you.

For the rest of us, here's a more conventional Caturday post:

More conventional for a Caturday post from a dog person.

Credits:  The first two pictures are from Gary Groshel's "Remembering the 99,"  a coffee table book of old photos that include 1895, 1899 and Model 99 Savage rifles.   The actual photos are much better than my crappy scans.   The book doesn't give you anything technical.  Its just full of pictures of how things were when these rifles were new.  If you are into Savage 99s, or aren't scared to try to be, its kind of a must have.

The next two are from Sporting Classics Magazine.

The rest of them came from various places on the intarwebz.

Hump Day - Rump Day: The Tactical Rump

Don't gripe about the trigger discipline on #1 or #3.  This post ain't about teaching firearm safety.

Dog Takes 2 Bullets and Still Scares off Home Invasion

When a group of men forced their way into a Tampa home Tuesday night, Legend the dog wasted no time trying to protect his people.

The gentle giant sprang into action, biting one of the men, as the home’s occupants struggled with their attackers.

The whole story complete with annoying pop-ups is at the link:
