Let me preface this by saying that I grew up in a redneck town where having a gun rack in your truck with a fully loaded shot gun was the norm. My Dad had a gun rack in his truck. But he only took his gun out when we were going shooting or hunting. So we weren't quite that redneck.
Anyway, so this is basically a normal family get together for us. We like to shoot shit up. Safely, of course.
We went to Get Some Guns & Ammo in Orem to their indoor shooting range. I have never shot in an indoor range before, but this was totally fine because it had snowed the night before and was still snowing all day Saturday. Being inside was awesome. My Dad came prepared with some zombie targets, hence the 'zombie shootout'. My husband actually bought me a little Rugar .22 pistol a couples months back, so this was my first time getting to shoot it.
I actually didn't do too bad considering this was my first time shooting my little .22. I was able to 'kill' some zombies and stay within the head region on my target. My husband and my sisters boyfriend, Jon, out shout us for all. Jon had the most body shots, and the hub had the best 'grouping'. Meaning he can shoot in the exact same spot repeatedly. I suck at that.
Rob was super pumped to shoot my Dad's Colt revolver. Isn't he the cutest?
The rest of our weekend was spent hanging out and watching the snow come down. Little C and Winston had a party all weekend long.
I probably say this all the time, but Winston is such a good dog. Seriously. I just love that dog so much. And just look at him!
How can you not love him?
Speaking of that beast. He has an affinity for soft toys. Like I have to hide all of Little C's stuffed animals because that is the first thing he goes for. So, I try to make a point of finding 'tough' soft toys for him. I found this pig at Costco last week.
So, I was convinced. Plus it was only 4 bucks.
It took two days for the pig to die.
It's weakness? The eyes. Although they are stitched, and not actual buttons they have enough of an edge that a clever beast like mine will rip them off, and then pull out all the stuffing. Had the husband not caught him getting crazy with the eyes the first day, it probably would have only lasted one day.
I think I am going to email the company. Because, really? Two days? Even though I only paid 4 dollars for it, I was really hoping to have gotten a little more use out of it. I figured he would find a way to destroy it, but I was hopeful it would last a little longer.
If you have a big dog like mine, what kind of toys do you usually buy?
-I usually stick to frisbees. Because then I can cover then in duct tape, and they last a lot longer. And they're only $0.99. The cheaper the better, because almost everything gets destroyed.
