“North Hollywood, Calif., Oct. 10 – ‘Smartest Dog’ to settle down – Maverick, a resourceful Doberman who raised himself from a pup and made a hobby of outwitting dog catchers, gets the first affection he’s had in four years of life from Mrs. Harry Crown, who became Maverick’s first owner yesterday. City dog catchers, who chased Maverick four years as his fame spread, pronounced him the smartest dog they’ve ever seen. A dart-gun tranquilizer charge finally stopped him early this week. Mrs. Crown bought him for $130 from the city in a spirited auction. 10/11/58”

Gone Shooting

I went shooting yesterday (sorry no new pics). I haven’t been in months and needed the practice. There are several guns that I need to shoot, but I only took one, my main “house” gun, my USP .45. I left the light on it because that’s how I have it at home. I did okay, but was definitely rusty. I am going to have to make myself go practice much more from now on.
