The Real Time Canine II

After spending 2 years writing the Real Time Canine, the adventure continues with The Real Time Canine II. Read along as I look for just the right puppy to continue the experience. After false starts with Tim and Jed, I am currently training young Tam, and Spot, which are both off to a strong start. Please visit the RTC II to read about training sessions as they occur.

The Sub-text of Groceries

Sweetgrass is a sweeping epic that has been called "an unsentimental elegy to the American West." I call it a documentary of what it takes to put meat on American tables and an insider's look at how livestock producers produce. The film traces an American rancher who pastures his stock in the mountains of Montana on a Federal grazing lease that has been in his family for generations. He says he is the last of his kind, but the truth of it is, there are others. I know them personally.

Watch the movie trailer posted here, then take a second look at the lamb in the meat case at your grocery store. It was put there by the blood, sweat and tears of the American rancher...unless it was imported.
