    It may only be a walking stick, but I've seen Becket wield it like a veteran Black Belt with a pike staff . . . she's lethal I tell ya. She may seem reserved and mild-mannered, but when she starts doing those aerial somersaults and blackflips and spinning that walking stick around everyone near her runs in fear.

    Actually,,If a bear is on top of me, I think a .45 up the nose would work better than a shot of pepper, besides if they sneeze in your face its really messy.

    Uh, Dave . . . what you do with a bear in the privacy of the Northern Maine woods is your own concern.

    Laughing about my cats' names? What's so funny about them? If anything is funny, as in odd, it's that their personality suits most of them. Theodore Roosevelt is always on the run and loves the outdoors. John Tyler is the oldest and the most complacent of the group. Calvin Coolidge on the other hand is anything but "Silent Cal" . . . we should have named him Taft due to his weight issues. My wife and I also have two other cats, but for some reason we didn't name them after the First Ladys . . . there's Thumper, a Manx with spina bifida that causes her to hop around (that and the stump of a tail makes her look like a "cabbit") and Lucky (so named since she's nearly all black and has nearly died twice now -- once when someone threw her out into the cold a couple of Januarys ago during a particularly cold stretch of weather and once when my wife found her caught up in the blind cord.)

    So after a saint bernard attacks you and now you are mutated for life and cant stand the touch of your boyfriends hand on your leg, all because some one else didnt think that the leash law was important. And also now even the softest and cutest dog is still a dog and seeing them unleashed brings back flash backs much like the ones that vietnam vets experiance.

    So when you feel that it is ok to let your dog run free in the woods think again, some day some one will have an adverse reaction to it. Maine does have a leash law and some people think it is ok to not leash there animals. When the damage is done and it is to late, dog owners will say GESSH I am so sorry that has never happened before. HAS anyone ever had some one killed to a drunk driver? It is much like the same. GESSSHH, I only had a few beers and that has never happened before.
