For many years we’ve put our dogs outside on a 50 foot rope.

With Geddy getting to 50+ very athletic pounds, I went from a 1/4” to 5/16 rope.

May have to go to 3/8, but this size should work for a long time.

I found the rope we had for Ernie, our first dog. 147 pounds of monster. We guessed he was a Labrador/ Great Dane mix.

Super friendly and sweet guy, but he was a force to be reckoned with for strength. He didn’t even need a rope in his older years. Been gone 20 years, but I still have his rope. We miss him a lot.

9/16” rope. Used 1/2” for 500 pound heifer collars on the farm…. He broke 1/2” like it wasn’t there….

Compared to Geddy’s old rope.

PS - the Mrs. had a couple pictures of the big guy.

The twins are 30 now….

She is beautiful. Definitely a keeper! Sure wish that I could get lucky enough to find a dog that both me and the wife could agree on.

He might be half Husky and stay outside even in a blizzard (because we can't convince him to come in even with bacon) but he loves his blanket. Tough guy till its movie time in the rec room.

Max enjoyed all the Thanksgiving activities and food to much. This was on Saturday, he was passed out on the sofa. He isn't use to having a house full of people and kids. Of course he got WAY to many table scraps. He was such a good boy, he even played with the babies and let them pull on him. He just ate up all the attention.

Many many years ago, we had a nice elderly couple in our neighborhood a few doors down. For some reason she put the remainder of her turkey outside in the roasting pan to cool down. I think they got into the booze and forgot about it. My dog Rinty, German shepherd found it and brought it home…frozen in the pan! Lol 😀😀😀

A friend's collie stole a whole turkey when the neighbor put it out on the porch to cool. They never told the neighbor that the dog had taken it, and they thought that it might have been a bear or coyote.
