    I love the green tint. I happen to adore blue green water. It is my favorite color. I haven't seen that shade since my trip to the Caribbean in 2006. Thanks for the info. (Sorry to ruin the secret of the location of the lake.)

    When I took him to the vet 2 months ago he weighed in at 25 pounds. He is an American Shorthair red tabby and 1/4 Siamese cross. He is very large for the breed. Am. Shorthairs come in a huge array of colors and are a working breed of cat. They were originally brought over on ships from Europe to hunt the rodents on board, which they are still quite effective at. He is from a sheep farm in southern Oregon. His father was a shorthair red tabby like him, the same size and temperament. He hunts everything around here, voles, moles, snakes, lizards, mice, and small rabbits. He eats most of them and supplements the cat food bill as well as control the rodent population. I have trained him not to hunt birds and bats. He is very mellow and rather sociable. He was about 20 pounds and fighting weight in the photo here, when he was 2 years old. He is 6 now and has gotten a pouch belly like older male Siamese cats get, but he still moves fast. He is a climber, and climbs trees and can climb a ladder in a split second. I have to watch where I leave ladders set up around here.

    I also raised livestock guardian dogs with my ex, Great Pyr/Maremma/Anatolian crosses. They were 80-120 pound dogs. Working dogs. People through we were raising wolves, which I did not go out of my way to deny. We never had a break in when I was living there. We usually had anywhere from 8 to 20 dogs at any given time. They ate a lot of dog food :eek:. I will ad some photos here when I find them on my other computer HD.

    Looks like my Benny JRT.. They are great dogs.. All what you put into them.. My dog will roll right over on his back and let me check for ticks, or even look his head over and hold completely still,,,, it's all about trust and a bond. 100_7064.JPG

    Aren't these just the best dogs once you have a bond established? It's like they are just as dedicated to you as the first day you got them..loads of fun with super personality's if you are cut out to have these dogs.. We're almost thinking of getting a female from the same breeder when she breeds again for Benny... She's breeds once a year.. Our other JR is 14 and going blind and my Shepard mix is 16. So I think Benny would love a new active play pall besides our cat.. He does play with our other dogs as well..

    I've had many, many dogs in my life, mostly big dogs...shephard's, collies, labs. Mostly rescues/free, or mutts. This is my first "small" dog., and the first pure bred in over 35 years. Bred for the show ring, his coat markings are "defective', hence the need for a solid home. It is, shall we say, a freaking experience.

    One of these days, those wild turkeys under the den window are going to listen to him, he swears it on a bible ;)

    Nikko, 22 lb shetland sheepdog, he does a great job of keeping the squirrels and birds off the lawn.

    We were getting the boat ready for a day on the water, he was spying on us, LOL.

    His first trip to Rausch Creek, PA in the Jeep to meet some forum friends from ZR2USA and do some wheeling.

    [​IMG]

    We were filming a friend climb a nasty technical rock hill and the little booger found himself a coal dust mud puddle to play in. Once back at the campground he had to get a sponge bath with bottled water. The funniest part was going down to the store to buy a brush to help clean him up.

    Totally passed out after a weekend of camping & wheeling.
