Day 9 part B
squeeze twice – boom boom
down, its down but still moving, snarling, blood on its neck, big black rotty and huge brown mastiff hitting it together, hitting its side,
just as must
steady, aim, squeeze again, at the head – boom finally not moving forward, dogs have it now, snarling, snapping, black rotty has its throat now, the bigger brown mastiff pushing down, biting its neck from above. Zeldy hitting it from the other side, grabbing its neck as well.
Damn that is one big dead Cat. Well even with 4 dogs, 3 bullet holes, that was my warning from up above. Finally got the dogs off, sitting although the worst one to get under control is Zeldy, though that is because she was abused as a pup and still has issues!
Blood lust, thought the dogs still listen, what a great sign that is.
wow.. what can I say.. wow.. did the last bullet do the trick, would the dogs have gotten their in time if I was not wearing the shoulder holstered 10mm? Time to put the utility belt on again as well. More ammo, mini mag light, multi tool and that .44cal in there for now or the .357? Choices again.
Lets get some good Doggy Treats.. Bacon strips,,, still breathing heavy, still wound up tight. Still looking around as are the dogs, will there be another attacking cat or wolf or moose? Need to be more vigilant from now on, there is nobody else here to patch me up at all. On the positive side, all the dogs ran to my rescue, the Baboons are much farther back and are now not coming close to bother me or the dogs now, they are keeping their distance, for now. Shake it off, shake it off and move along folks, nothing to see here folks, nothing to see, move along!
Need better names than just Black Rotty Male, Black Rotty Female and big brownish Mastiff ! Can’t just keep calling them those names, need to come up with some other names, what to call them?
Thank the higher powers that be for all that range time, Combat Shooting club, IPSC and PPC shooting matches, all that time practising in the past, thousands of rounds down range, that is what saved me now. The dogs would have been there a split second late, could I have drawn the K-bar or Kukri in time and stabbed the cat? Well not sure and from now on, combat readiness, knives and handguns on me at all times!
Ok shake it off, back at it too much work to do still to moap or reflect on this. Elephants out now, all the animals I can find are out now, time to go, time to wind down while I drive, not too far though the Reptile store is just a few blocks away, Bowmanville is small town, nice small town but time to leave here, leave it just a bit more wild than it was before!
Bang bang goes the shotgun, boom boom goes the flash bangs, lets make sure these animals have a chance now from the other predators, Right!
on other side of Bowmanville, quick stop and release. No issues, just a lot of snakes, spiders, iguanas, more spiders, more snakes, salamanders, lizards.. and so on and so on.. quite a lot actually.
Doors opened, food dumped on floors and table tops, fish tanks opened up, not sure what to do with the fish, so sorry just leave them there for the Reptiles to do what they need to do. They will be wandering outside now to forage, they will have to from now on.
One last thing to do now, almost out the door, toss the little bins of crickets and other meal worms out so the critters can feast, back away as a large Tarantula is headed my way. The Tarantula is probably just curious, might be used to getting on peoples hands and arms, but not time now for decisions about that, off we go. Way too much to do still today, too much
With a quick stop in Oshawa at one of the Trailer manufactures that line the 401 near the old Park Rd exit, I switched up trailers. Since I will be going so far and doing so much we need a different place to stay now.
After a quick search, here is an almost perfect solution to our needs a Toy Hauler! Quad and toys, tools and equipment go into the back with a small camper layout in the front area for me and the Dog Pack, well that is what they think anyways!
This little gem of a trailer is quite nice, has a built in Quiet 3000w Honda Generator, with 12v and 110v plugs, water holding tank, toilet with a shower stall and a kitchen galley for food preparation with a Propane Stove and Fridge, with a 100 gallon propane tank mounted inside / outside for easy filling and safety. Home on the range for us.
The only other modification I did was quite selfish though much needed modification. The DOGS SNORE LOUDLY, so if I want to get any real sleep, guess what the dogs are now sleeping in the Toy Hauler area on a Queen sized mattress. Zeldy does not like being separated from me at night, but with the other dogs for company I think she will do just fine.
Four large dogs quite fill up this queen sized mattress, giving them some much needed luxury as well. Next mattress will be a king sized one perhaps. In the day time I can just lift it up onto one side and secure it using some straps to get it out of the way, or haul it outside for them.
The other nice feature is the pull out canopy on the side with a quick fold out BBQ, boy they thought of almost everything didn’t they. O forgot to mention the Satellite, Flatscreen TV, DVD player, and stereo as well. More like home than even I am used too, but I will struggle along nicely I am sure. The deck on top of the back of the toy hauler will come in so handy for sitting up there as well as having a nice high vantage point, with a chair 😀
The Viking pulls this setup without missing a beat, one of the many nice features of the Diesel engine of the Viking has lots of pulling power and generally better fuel economy pulling trailers and the like than just empty as well. Later on I will decide to pull it all with my 7.3ltr 1988 Ford Club Wagon i350 camperized box truck or leave it behind.
Decisions for another day, another day, more decisions.
Tossed in two chest freezers as well from an Appliance place that was only 200 meters away. Will run the genny or plug them in for now to keep the meat and veggies frozen. Can’t know for sure how long the power will stay running so, prep now for the future, very near future.
Quick stop at the WalMart and Presidents Choice Grocery stores that are over the bridge from the Trailer supply place. Only 1 hr total and we not have food enough for 1 month. Lots of frozen veggies, frozen fruits, frozen meats, canned goods, packaged goods and bulk items. It is amazing how fast it is to shop now even with two carts with nobody to get in your way, nobody to worry about at the cash, nobody at all.
So far the only times I am getting lonely are the times I go to some Human type place, like the store or Hospital or the playgrounds at the Zoos, places meant for people.
I will be starting the Joe Juice Diet now, need to keep up the nutrition and do a real good purge for my health. Since I have watched the documentary; “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” did some research learned tons, well since then eating much healthier. To add to my Ninja Food Master Prep, at the WalMart I grabbed a wide mouth Juicer so making the juice will be easy and quick. The Ninja Prep is an awesome beast with lots of sharp knives in there, though better suited for making smoothies later on.
DOGS, So smelly today, Dogs you will all travel in the Trailer with the windows down so you all can look outside and it can air out as I drive in the Pickemup .. LOL (say it like a Redneck now) .. alone listening to music, smell zone free, for today anyways! 4 sets of Doggie eyes are looking up at me expectantly, they are in for a bit of a shock, in the trailer they go!
Time to wind down and relax for an hour before getting to the next zoo.
Off to the Toronto Zoo now !
