I've been kinda gaining stamina back to get back to what I was doing before for about 3 years now. So I plan on getting another duck toller and I have a hound mix right now. The duck tollers are excellent dogs. Very friendly, but standoffish at first a bit.
Jake, now how did this thread turn to dogs and autos? [chuckle] Oh well...

Wow! You did update it! I hope I can keep my heard thinned down; don't want to own more than three dogs or three autos! Takes too much time!

I have been tempted to get a '87 TD, but instead went for the W123 as had history and available. Now though, be silly as I have to get the Squareback fixed up!

Well, thinking the next Service Dog will be a mix. I like Rottweilers and German Mastiffs, but has to have the brains and some basics so Ember can train him or her. Ember is now about four, so three years until I get another. That gives two years or so for Ember to train him or her and retire at age nine.
