True dog days of summer

Open Season: Back to the dog training grindstone thanks to spring

Open Season: Easy come, even easier go

Open Season: This new dog owner learning right along with pup
The first time we saw the puppy, my wife, Erin, and I knew he was ours. It was late June, and we were at Top Shelf Kennels in Horace, N.D. - just south and left of the blinking stoplight on Sheyenne. Owner Jeff Jalbert, whom I had corresponded with via e-mail for a week, welcomed...
