I'd take an animal that size to the river to feed every day. Is he capable of eating naughty young kids as well. Good looking dog though. Is this a humphy year?

OC, sorry but Kuma loves little kids and dispite his size he is quite gentle with the little ones. He plays tug of war with my grandson who is 4, weighs maybe 40 pounds and lets him win.

Humpy mania is only a month or two away. Get out your plunkin' pole, your wing bobbers, 7 oz. pyramid weights, and your styrofoam container of sand shrimp, come on up and join the fun. Oh, and when you are done with your container of shrimp remember to toss it into the river along with your empty beer cans. Please break all your glass beer bottles up on the rocks. And you can leave any old fishin' line on the bank so the birds can get tangled up in it. We are going to have us one heck of a good time.

Great dog, but kids look like bite size kibbles to him.

Don't you guys up your way call all them there boys, Crackers? I don't know why and I've asked many but we don't seem to have many of them there boys on this side of the Columbia. But go to your side and they line up like a ship of fools. You breed em good over your side all the way to the Canadian border.

And oh Kerry, ya forgot about shatting on the trail to the river and not using TP so one can see the squat mark.
