Text Appearing Before Image:
the forest, literally seekingwhat he may devour. The number of nests and eggsof turkeys, ruffled grouse and quail that these animalssearch out and destroy is very great. Some States havelaws providing that hogs shall not be allowed to runat large, but such States are exceptions. On the otherhand, it must be said that in States so thinly settledthat hogs and cattle are permitted to run wild, thereare comparatively few dogs and cats that roam thefields and woods. Mr. Herbert Brown reported a few years ago thatprevious to the introduction of ranch cattle the maskedquail was quite common in southern Arizona, but thatthe cattle eating off and trampling down the tall grasshad so destroyed the breeding and hiding places of thisbird that it had practically disappeared from the UnitedStates side of the line, and at latest reports this wasstill the condition, as is seen by what he says on page64. Under such adverse conditions, it is not strangethat our stock of splendid game birds grows smaller

Winter quarters of Dr. Hodges Quail. Photographed by C. F. Hodge. DESTRUCTION AND PROTECTION 539 year by year. The problem as to what shall be done tokeep this stock from wholly disappearing gives causefor much anxiety. For American sportsmen, American game birds arethe best, and there is no reason why we should not havean abundance of these, provided only for a short timewe practice a little self-control. The wild turkey wasformerly found over the whole United States, east ofthe Missouri River, south of the Niobrara and east ofthe Rocky Mountains. Grouse of one sort and anotherformerly abounded over almost the whole United Statesand Canada, while in the southern portions of theUnited States there were great numbers of quail.These birds sportsmen may bring back, in large meas-ure, if they care to; but they cannot do this by killingthem at every opportunity. All these birds are prolificand probably all can be hand-reared. If this can bedone, they may be turned out in numbers on gameref

This is Indy’s expression when you say either the word "food" or the word "hungry"
At one point Indy weighed in at nearly 40 pounds. That scared the living daylights out of me. I thought I was going to lose him all too soon because of his weight. We’ve worked very hard and Indy is now down to 34.4 pounds that’s at lot for a little dog to have lost. They list the breed standard as 30 to 38 pounds – and Indy is smack in the middle. In other words, he’s healthy and right where he should be.

Maize is a Japanese Chin that my family dog sat for last week. He is a crazy little beast who, despite thousands of years of breeding to be a lap dog, much prefered the company of our dogs. Our trip to the dog park was the highlight of his week. "I’ve never seen so many dogs in one place! I’m in heaven!!"
