Just a short drive from Lake E...
Long story here. We lost our labrador retriever last November after 14 years. I wasn't looking for a new dog, but my two sons kept pestering me about what type of dog that I would get if I were to get one. I told them that I would get a female beagle pup if I ever got one. In February after a basketball game, I was sleeping at 12:30 in the morning and was woken up by a new puppy licking my face. The boys had been looking for months and had found and gone and gotten the puppy without me or my wife knowing. We all fell in love with "Tracker". Well, I entered Tracker into a fishing photo contest and I need some bankers to help me out. I'm behind in the voting so this is a shameless plea for votes. Vote for Tracker (photo #7) at this link: http://www.thenextbite.com/node/11729

Thanks

wasn't Tracker a name for a young pup in a Disney cartoon from a million years ago?

I tried to vote but I did not find a send button or something to tally my vote. Do you have to register first to vote? You guys are crazy to be out fishing in the cold. Some of those shots looked like it was 10 degrees outside. Brrrrrrrr

Even if you don't win the contest, it's obvious you've won the son lottery. What great kids to work that hard to get a surprise like that for you, Dad. Be proud. Be VERY proud.

You don't need to log in to vote, you just click on the radio button by the picture. The fish was 8 pounds and the dog was 6 pounds at the time. She was only 3 pounds when we got her, and would fit in the palm of my hand.

Not sure about the Disney dog named Tracker, but the guys that run website that the photo contest is on are sponsored by Bass Pro Shops. The Bass Pro boat is Tracker, hence the name. My avatar is of my boat, a Tracker Tundra walleye boat.

Truff, I definitely hit the lotto in the son department. They both turned out great, and each has a great girlfriend that had a hand in getting Tracker for me.

Somewhere in the middle
Disney = Fox and the Hound

Fox name was Todd
Hound Dog name was Copper
Old dog name of Chief.

Site blocked will try to look at home.

Beagles are such great dogs.

I voted for you...but that Alligator Gar looks too cool too (I had never seen one until I watched Mark Zona fish for them on WGFS and they were freaky)! smile

Tracker is adorable.

Queenie, gar are awesome. I had a longnose gar in an aquarium for about 4 years. They are fun to watch and easy to keep as long as you have a ready supply of live fish to feed them.

My buddies fish tournies on Sag bay, Pale. Great fishery.

My son in college invited us to take him and her girlfriend out for dinner tonight for her birthday. He only has one class tomorrow so he wants to keep Tracker in his apartment over night. What a great kid, and Tracker's first sleep-over!!

I'm 50+ votes behind. Help out a fellow banker if you haven't already voted.

She is probably the smartest dog we've ever had. When she chases the boys in the house, she will only go thru the kitchen once and then she takes the short cut thru the living room to cut them off when they come out.

She can sit, sit up, shake with either hand, lay down, and roll over. This week we are working on stay.

Today, she didn't want to get up with me at 5:30, so I rubbed her stomach and tried to coax her to get up. She just laid on her back and looked at me. I went and got her leash and clipped it on her collar. She started snoring like she was trying to fake me out that she was still sleeping. She gave it away when her eyes were open and her tail was wagging. What a bundle of joy she is.

You'll need our help considering how much smaller your fish is than all your competition!
